Killzone Shadow Fall download is "cracking on" to be 50GB


It sounds like you may want to stick to buying discs next gen if the download size of Killzone Shadow Fall is anything to go by.

Apparently Killzone: Shadow Fall's digital download is "cracking on" to be a whopping 50GB file, Sony UK MD Fergal Gara told Eurogamer recently, although Sony is hoping that PlayStation 4's Play as you Download functionality will help ease players fears.

"The Play as you Download functionality, for example, means you don't need the whole file before you go," said Gara. "This is a little bit counterbalanced by the fact the files themselves are getting bloody big. Killzone: Shadow Fall is an uber file - I think it's cracking on for 50GB. It looks it, too, when you see it."

Luckily the recently announced bundles contain a Blu-ray Disc copy of Killzone: Shadow Fall. That'll probably come as a relief for those lucky enough to snag one.

of course it will! Digital delivery will never take over physical media because, yes, while it's super convenient, it also means you're paying for a medium to store it. I have between 500GB and 1TB in all my consoles... but I have over 100 retail titles. Sometimes I think "Oh you know what, I feel like a spin on Xcom". Being able to chuck the disc in will always trump downloading it again!

The xbox one and the PS4 are both going to have the same type of install when you first put in the game (think PS3) though you can play while it does this time from what i have read.

Xbox have also confirmed you'll be able to play the game while it's still installing. Good news!

Yeah that is. Wonder if they are doing it like the PS4 where you can choose to install single player or multiplayer first.

If you have to install every single game, and based on this story, most games are going to be between 30-50GB, you're only going to be able to store about 10-12 games. Hope they sort something out

Official Xbox and PS4 external hard drives at inflated prices are incoming.

THats only for the full game I imagine, the normal install will be a lot less than that for playing from the disc. Do they both not support external hard drives?

I thought installing the game meant you didn't need the disk for anything more than proof you own it.

That was before they changed there mind i thought? You could be completely right either way i am planning on getting an external hard drive for it.
