NBA 2K14 download ver on PS4/XO requires 50-60GB hard drive space?

#1
Just spotted this on Amazon. I checked the PS3 and X360 sizes they listed and they're pretty much spot on.

I wonder why the next-gen version requires 5x the space?

Up to 70 GB storage (10 GB on Xbox 360 and 60 GB on Xbox One) required.
Up to 59 GB storage (9 GB on PlayStation3 and 50 GB on PlayStatoin4) required.

These sizes, if accurate, are going to make me seriously reconsider going digital next generation. And I'm on 40MBs internet.

Well, even considering that I plan to upgrade my PS4 HDD to the biggest one I can find day one, it seems my next gen digital only plan is screwed.

Fuck.

Have you see that beard tech? Harden's beard probably takes up half the space.

And yeah the PS4 (and presumably XB1) version of 2K14 looks way better than the PC version, at least without mods.

That's exactly why I abandoned the all digital plan. Even after the upgrading the HDD, it wouldn't last long enough to be worth the added cost in my view.

Oh and Sony better allow us the pre download games before the release...

I think the best HDD for a PS4 right now would be a 1TB hybrid HDD. That would be good for about 10-15 retail games and a couple digital only ones.

That's just not enough space for me... :-(

Looks like it's time to pick up a 3TB on Black Friday...
I may be wrong, but I don't think they make them that large in the 2.5" form factor. For the PS3 earlier this year, the largest I could find that would fit was 1.5TB. There are 2TB 2.5" drives, but they're too fat for the PS3. No idea about the PS4, but I think it's a fair assumption that the HDD bay will be the same size as PS3.

Wow.. I wanted to go all digital.... space will fill up quick if these sizes are to be true.. and XB1 doesn't allow upgraded HDD so were going to be deleting games and installing left and right in no time.

Long live retail. You digital only dudes are nuts. I do wonder what will be the install sizes with the disc though. does it instlall all the data from the blu ray? I hope not MS and Sony both bullshitted with paltry ass 500 gig hard drives.

XB1 allows external drives to expand your current one. You can install games in the external drives after and update coming after launch.

Do both systems install the full game even if you have the disc.
I know Xbox One does, not sure on PS4.

Essentially if you have shitty internet and want to go digital you could borrow/rent the disc, have it installed on the Xbox then purchase the game off Marketplace. In theory the only stuff you'd need to download then would be any updates.

Does anyone know if you need double the space to download a PS4 game (50GB download would need 100 GB space)?

you can use an external hard drive.

Why are they adding together the storage space requirements for the PS3+PS4/360+XB1?

Non-replaceable HDDs and mandatory installs are not a good combination.

Also the idea of a DD-only future is laughable with bandwidth caps and internet speeds in many places.

With these file sizes, they should have just made the consoles have something like a hot swappable hdd. Setup with something like a small ssd for the os and system files and a separate hot swappable hdd for the games.

Oh! Will PS4 offer the same option? If so what is the largest external HDD can I get? I would assume I would want USB 3.0? I think both consoles have USB3.0 on the back of the system.
