Just saw this on the PlayStation store.



62.7gb

I've only played the demo on ps3, what would warrant such a download size?

Crazy file size.

You can't have next-gen without 50+gb installs. It just doesn't work with all the AIs and megatextures and flac audio.

They're always doing silly shit where they don't compress the audio and stuff like that. Maybe that happened here?

Probably completely uncompressed audio and cutscenes in multiple languages.

The reason must be the presence of all the language files in the game. On PC, if you download every single language, I'm sure the game can get this big. Still, that sucks.

Even with the disk it'll take the same amount of space. I really wonder why it's so large. Every language installed maybe ?

The Dutch web store says 58.4 GB, but yeah, WTF! So it's actually compressed on the Blu-ray disc? Edit: that or a day one patch I guess.

I don't own that many disc based games anyway yet, so the file size is no problem for me, but no way I'm gonna spend € 69,99 on it for the digital version. I'm trying to go digital only and this is the first € 69,99 game I actually want, but I'm sure it'll drop to around 39-49 before year's end, I can wait.

It's gonna take up 60GB on your HDD regardless.

Do they not join file sizes of each game on PSN? Or is it not crossbuy with PS3 version?

I'm just wondering because I bought The Swapper on PSN, it said about 900MB but the PS4 version was about 400MB, other versions made up the rest of the size on PSN...

That is all I can think of, why would Diablo 3 be 62GB is beyond me otherwise.

Installing from disc is faster than downloading from the store.

Titanfall is only a 20 GB download and is 50 GB when installed though... Wolfenstein is the real 50 GB monster.
