S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 is one of the most impressive-looking games that was revealed at the Xbox E3 2021 showcase. The game has a beefy file size on Xbox Series.
Hefty file size in 150GB, but still not monstrous, call of duty will just get moved to the external to make room for this one :p
It's crazy that COD even needs so much data, it's not nearly as impressive looking as other games in the generation.
It's just war zone that's the killer BO Cold War not too bad
Yeah, I played War Zone once in a while with my brother, while it wasn't a huge problem since I have 3TB for my PS4 Pro, it could be an issue if I had to be switching over a COD game to play on a PS5 for the enhancements.
Lazy compression. Happy to add to the game but they clearly don’t take out unnecessary data and have never heard of compression. They could probably half it if they even tried
looooooooots of sound and redundancy in COD.
Because the game’s base is Warzone and the microtransactions, which you can’t remove because that’s where all the microtransactions are and they want you there at all times.
Yeah "Murder" Sounds editorialized. I feel like all new games are basically going to be 80GB+ in almost all cases - but also, why does it matter? Play it, uninstall it or move to another drive when you are done playing (this goes for ANY console)?
I disagree. They should be capable of staying below 80GB for most games with the compression capabilities of these systems IMO.
ps5 games are getting smaller in bytes, but bigger in worlds.
I've got over 700 gb free on my 1tb Series X external so I'm good.
Yeah, I've come to a realization that 500GB NVMe is not enough on my PC, so I mounted a 1TB HDD and 2.5" 120SDD, + 4TB external, just so I can swap out games(to NVMe, 2.5" SSD), Still a pain in the ass sometimes. I wish I had that problem on a next-gen console, though.
So buy a 2TB drive or larger.
The issue is that BOTH machines have rather small SSD drives included with the console. In order to play the game ON EITHER SYSTEM it has to be played off that internal SSD, that currently can not be expanded. Sony has plans to enable the replacement of their internal SSD to a larger one. It doesn't appear that MS will do that. However they did LAUNCH with the ability to add additional useable SSD cards. However, they are propriety, and stupid expensive right now, especially after you have already laid out $300-$500 for a new system, assuming you can find one at retail. BOTH systems have the capability to store games on an external HDD, but if it is a "next gen" game it has to be moved to the SSD in order to be played. The exception to this, at least for Xbox (I'm not sure about PS) is with any "last gen" games. Those can be played off the HDD. This helps as there are not that many "next gen" games out there, so it is not much of an issue. I think it is great that PS has worked on compression, and MS should take note of that for sure. But you know what would have been even nicer? If they would work on compression AND provide a reasonable sized SSD, if games are going to keep getting bigger, and it seems that they will.
Hmmm good thing we have an expandable storage option huh 🤣
I would think no one should even worry about storage space for this game now knowing the game doesn't release until April (XB) & July (PS5) 2022.
Nah man, I have to figure out my storage situation by then and get a new card, this is stressful 😩. Ark beats the shit out of my 500GB NVMe main drive even when I installed it on a 1TB HDD.
They don’t use hard disks so how can it murder them???
Who doesn't use hard disks?
PS5 and X Series use drives not disks.
@Darkwatchman Lol, only just noticed that lol, think they should have put hard drive instead.
I doubt it. They also said RE8 was gonna be way bigger than it ended up being when it actually came out. Stalker 2 is a year away.
I love the downvotes on here. Yeah they know how big the file size is a year out. Come on guys, I know you're looking for reasons to hate on everything but use your brains. It's a placeholder.
This is based off of the official game Xbox game page of which the information comes from the developer. So I would suspect they would at least have an idea of how big they expect it too be.
gotta love this guy now :D https://www.pirateshipvalla...
I get it 😉
How can you murder that which doesn't exist? You know.. because the Xbox Series doesn't have a Hard Disk.. I'll see myself out.
Looks like the author has never heard of Cod Modern Warfare......
So far PlayStation 5 file sizes have been surprisingly small
Interesting that this has been released with still 10 months until launch…
This has really been bumming me out with my ps5. I’m so used to having every game I own on an external and I play whatever I want when I get a wild hair. I’m having to pick and choose what I can have on my ps5 and sometimes I just turn it off because I don’t want to play anything on it. I got a wild hair to play outer worlds yesterday and I had to delete like 3 games to get it on there lol.
I must admit, I actually miss the memory card era over this.
Sucks to be a PS fan sense PS is lacking anything worth playing or even worth my time when it comes to exclusives. At least I have tons more games to play and many exclusives to get my hands on.
Why flag this right? His whole comment history is trolling, but of course since he trolls Sony, no ban ever...
Halo: The Master Chief Collection a whopping 174GB. Imagine having a series S with COD, Halo and this game you wouldn't have room for anything else.
File size articles are moronic. Video games coverage is ass.
