If I remember MGS 4 was 50 gigs. 54GB is kind of crazy.

Well, time to take all of that porn off of my PS3.......

Threads like this remind me that I probably should have upgraded my launch PS3 or its hard drive a long time ago. I guess I've been too cheap/lazy... Then again, even though it may sound like a 747 taking off when doing anything remotely taxing and only has room for about 2 installed games at this point, there is something sorta noble about it limping along until the end of the generation *salute*

My hard drive is 250 GB, but it's still too full of other games to be of any use so I can only really go the disk games route until I get a PS4 with like a terabyte minimum.

Apparently Guardians of Middle Earth requires 75 GB. WTF is up with that?

If that's true, and it sounds CRAZY that must be just a PS3 thing cause I have it for my 360 and it wasn't even close to that. I can't remember specifically but I'm on a 120 GB system and im pretty much always almost full, at the most I'll have 10 GB free at any time. What in the sweet holy hell is PSN doing?

Edit: I just checked, it takes up a whopping 1.02 GB

I'm curious, there was a report that you can play the game after the download reached 50%. Anybody know how to do it?

UPDATE: Well, Sony's getting smarter, it looks like. Now you can download a small installer, and it will take care of installing the game for you. All that deleting for nothing. Still, 27 GB is pretty big. Original post follows.

Boy, I feel dumb. I literally posted a prediction that Sony would fix this issue with the PS4 less than five minutes ago, and now I find out they've already fixed it on the PS3. Time to edit that other post.

I'm curious about this too. I'm sitting here looking at a 12 hour download, and I'd be jumping up and down if I could start playing in half that.

Uncharted 3 is like 40 GB. It's insane.

I still have my 40 gig from 2008 so uh...yea, viva la physical discs!

I tried downloading the demo and got hit with the "... game requires 75 GB free space, please check your HD before downloading". First time I got this message from any game.

That's like.....3 and a half Mass Effect games. Sheesh.

This is why I was such a huge fan of Sony saying they were going to slap Blu-Ray drives into the PS3. No more fucking with audio quality to bring the size down to fit on a DVD or trying to compress textures as much as they can. It's a beautiful thing. I can't wait for the newer consoles to start taking full advantage of the Blu-Ray disc to fit super high quality textures on it and actually be playable in game. It's also because of this I still buy physical copies of AAA console games as I hate waiting for just a 10GB game on Steam to download. I want to play now, although, forced installs hinder that at times hehe.

@hailinel:

That was my also my initial thought. Then i got to thinking, if its true, and it may be becasue i think Max Payne was 32gig, what will the first 100 gig game download be?

Are you kidding me? I need to buy a bigger hard drive.

#65 Posted by xyzygy (9943 posts) -

Looks like I won't be able to play this game. Fuck. So stupid.

PlayStation Plus already put a huge dent in my 500GB and this filled it. Now I'm looking at a 1TB drive. O_O

That's bananas. And kinda a bummer cause that game is pretty great.

Just to follow up on this since I haven't seen a post about it: it's not at 50%, for me it was around 75%. Or maybe I just hadn't noticed it before since I was turning my TV off and on intermittently throughout the hour and 57 minute advertised download time. But when the timer got down to 0 minutes there was still 73-76% on the download bar, except with a message under it saying something like "You have downloaded enough to start playing. Press X to begin."

I bought and loaded the game three times last night, at a playtime of just under 3 hours; this morning, just like those times, the game opened with a load screen updating me on my download's progress (90%). It's a fucking genius feature in my opinion, so long as the game doesn't break fantastically at some point.

Edit: Goofing around in the menus while I wait for this album to end, I also noticed that the options menu on the main title and in-game also displays your download progress, which might come in handy for DLC later on if people end up playing this multiplayer hard.

@nodima: Weird, it was 50% for me. And when you say 75% do you mean it had to download 75%, or you could start playing when there was 75% left? Hopefully it wasn't the former

And this feature is SO foreshadowing how the ps4 will work. It'll be a huge feature if sony requires all downloadable games to be playable after the first few hours of assets are loaded onto the system, while the rest downloads in the background. It's gonna be rad if it works like that

Edit: oh, maybe the installer sets what percentage you have to have downloaded based on your download speeds!! That seems like a smart way of handling it

1994s Ultima 8 got a lot of shit, because it required a 50 megabyte install.

We've come a decent way.

That's the problem with having everything on Blu Rays. Isn't 50 GB what Blu Rays store for games like MGS4? That's why I'm not sure how the next generation will work in a theoretical all-digital future.
