Prepare your pipe: next-gen downloads could be hard to stomach.

50gb really? I'll definitely be buying disc versions for the games if they're going to be that big.

And suddenly a 500 GB harddrive seems inadequate.

Looks like I'll have to change the hard drive pretty soon after getting one, then. Hopefully the PS4 will accept 2TB Hard Drives.

For me though storage isn't the issue, but rather the bandwidth. I'm stuck using 3G+ for my internet, so bandwidth is crazy expansive for me.

Anyways 50GB seems huge now, but in a couple of years it'd be nothing. Back when the last gen first launched 1GB was still considered HUGE, both in terms of storage and bandwidth. Nowadays 1GB downloads are considered small, and people are doing it on their phones even. Ahhh I remember the days back when we used to measure data in KBs, and back when having MBs of storage was top tier state of the arts.

From what I understand you have the sp and mp downloaded separately meaning you could download the sp play it then uninstall it then install the mp. I will just say that 25GB for each mode but I am guessing the multiplayer will have more.

We still don't know how much access to the game we'll actually have.
I mean, imagine that single player, one level is 2gb in size. What if I reach a point where I am at the part of a level that has yet to be downloaded? Does it just pause on me like YouTube videos? Do I have to have at least a few gb downloaded before I can stream?
