So 10-15 games will pretty much fill the non-replaceable hard drive? Hmm. Let's hope 1TB external pocket drives become cheaper soon, then.

Basically the games are 3 times bigger than current gen and the HDD is only twice the size of current gen. There may be file management ahead, but while there's music and movies and games and sloppy performance, let's face the music and dance. Oops, broke into song there, sorry.

And when you finish those games and move on to the next ones, you install them. I dont know why there's this insistence to keep every game you own installed.

Perhaps it's this illusion that consoles are still like the good old days where no installation was required. There is no escaping it anymore: Optical media isn't up to the capacity and/or access speeds required for the level of content we're playing with these days. Each game would need to come on a hot swappable SSD at £80 a pop to replicate the olden days.

These install sizes on these games are pretty much reflective of PC install sizes. It's only a matter of time before we assimilate you all into the master race! BWHAHAHAH! >.>

yeah I keep forgetting that you can delete them , its jut that if I want to play them again. I just wonder how long the install will take?, and if they will ever be able to make the sizes smaller.

I had COD Ghosts preordered for PS4 and therefore have received it before my PS4 (which is useful), I'm at work now and so can't check but am pretty sure that the install for COD on PS4 is exactly the same. I do agree that 500 gigs is starting to seem small. It's going to be a case of putting your saves on the cloud and deleting any games you haven't played for a while. Which is a shame......

Sorry, meant to say I know this as it's on the back of the box.

you can replace the internal hard drive in the PS4 tough so you could have 1TB or bigger if you wanted

Because I don't play one game at a time. With a PC I upgrade the hard drive or use a fast external one. I like to have most of my games available to me to play at once. Surely waiting an hour for an install before you play something is going backwards rather than improving things?

Hopefully the Xbox One will have fast read/write to external drives and we can use that, but moving to a more PC based architecture, you'd think they'd at least allow us to swap out the drive or have space for a second.
