On a separate but related note, when you buy a physical copy of a game does the install onto the system (whatever is being installed) require an Internet connection? My Internet is as active as a wet piece of lettuce.

Maybe a better idea would be to get a 500GB then just replace it with a 2TB HD when it's on sale? :D

P.S. Thanks for the replies everyone. Still internally debating... :/

I found that 500GB wasn't quite enough for the amount of games I like to keep available, but 2TB was way more than I needed. I have a bad habit of leaving games alone for long periods though without finishing - so keeping them installed because I know I will want to finish them, but not actually really playing them often.

If you tend to stay focused on a single game at a time, 500GB will probably be fine. If you don't mind having to manage that stuff occasionally, 500GB is probably fine. 1TB will almost certainly be enough for a good while.

I think ultimately it will depend how many games you like to keep just so you can dip into them occasionally.

@thomasnash So i'm assuming you just got a separate HD to replace it? I rarely buy new games and generally have 2 to 3 games ongoing concurrently.

@zeik said:

It hasn't been an issue for me. Right now I have somewhere around 7-8 major games installed and another dozen or so smaller downloadable games and I still have like 150 GB left. Yeah, I have had to uninstall some of my bigger games here and there when I do run low on space, but there's really no need to have all those games installed at once. Compared to the PS3, where I felt like I had to uninstall stuff every single time I wanted to install anything new, I've had much more pleasant time with data management on the PS4.

If you can afford to get a bigger HDD then why not? But I don't think it's a necessity.

@zeik I guess for me it generally depends on the cost vs "reward" with paying more for the 1TB model. I mean, do you guys think there'll ever be a time when we won't have to uninstall games on the PS4, or is this just something we'll have to live with this generation? If the latter then I don't see the 500 GB model being too much of an issue, but then again I guess games released later on will probably be a lot larger than now. :/

Unless you need to have every digital game you own installed, 500 is fine.

@hunkulese Thanks!

Most of my installed retail games are about 37GB each. Smaller downloadable titles are usually between 1 and 5 GB each. I'd say you'd be fine with 500, as long as you buy on disc, and have a decent download speed for re-downloading updates to games you delete and eventually want to play again.

@spaceinsomniac I should be alright then. I still have some weird logic in my head that keeps me buying disks (unless there's a really good deal on digital). The only other question I have is, is it like the PS3 where you still had to download something onto the system even when you bought it on disk? Wasn't sure what happened with the last gen (360 owner here). Thanks again!

Hi all,

I'm looking to purchase a PS4 soon, but i'm aware that a 1TB model will be released. I'm wondering if a 500GB is enough considering I don't really buy that many games since I don't really have the time. Looking forward to hear back! Thanks!

Hiya,

Just wondering about how buying microsoft points cards work. Is it locked based on the console's region or the account's region? Also, how do you check your account's region? Thanks in advance.

Hiya,
Might be a silly question, but am I correct in assuming that once i've begun season 2 using season 1's save I can remove season 1 altogether? I'm on an iPad mini and have limited space. Thanks in advance!

I'd definitely recommend the "Fight Back to School" series starring Stephen Chow.

@audiobusting: Actually seems like a good idea. If you accidentally step on someone's stuff, deny, pull out your phone, start filming, wait for the little tap from them, then fake an injury like you're playing for the cup in the Premier League.

@stonyman65: Yeah, unfortunately scams like that continue to exist i'm guessing simply because they continue to work?

@ripelivejam: *giggles*
