Damn, remember when you would hear about a game being 50GB and think “wow that’s a big game”

ID: gpz0d0g

I remember a time when games that were 1gb was massive

ID: gq0xtw0

I still think 50GB is big.

ID: gpzdgru

And just this last week It was reported out that COD WARZONE will no longer fit fully on a 500gb PS4 hard drive, for those who have that model. Which is the exact opposite of this news. I can’t even imagine what justification WARZONE has to take up that much space.

ID: gpzm374

It’s still relatively big for a Capcom game. They’re usually around the 20-30gb range. The only other big one I can think of is Monster Hunter, but before iceborne it was like 18gb.

ID: gq07gpg

Metal gear solid 4 rings a bell when they were showing off the 50gb bluray disc which barely fit the game into 1 disc

ID: gq1i5n7

I remember Metal Gear Solid 4 for the PS3 was massive for the time and it was like 27 GB. I think it was one of the few games for the PS3 that required an install that took around 15 minutes of so. Now I have one of the NBA 2K games that’s over 60 GB and I have no idea how a basketball game can be that big.

ID: gq1coo3

Still big for me

ID: gpzni5z

Yup, then devs became even better at coding and that number went way down again. And then Warzone...

In 1987, I had my Atari 1040ST. It used the new 3.5" floppies. 1.44mb. I saw an advertisement for a new 500mb HD. I remember thinking "If I had a 500MB hard drive....I would never need any more storage ever."

I remember my cousin had some game that used about ten floppy disks to run it. Crazy isn't it where we are just 25 odd years on.

500MB HD

500mb != 500MB

Yea data actually has weight believe it or not

ID: gq20t6w

“Weight” has been used as a computer slang for file size in Russian for a few decades now. I wonder if that’s where this phrasing came from.

ID: gq01b3x

I actually love this phrasing

ID: gq2xl23

That phrasing is very common in Eastern Europe. I am Polish and haven't realized that it's not really used in English until this moment.

ID: gq3ytaw

I thought it was “weigh in” at first, like boxers

Here’s hoping it gets the VR treatment for either the PSVR or the PSVR2. Resi 7 in VR was a pants shittin’ good ol’ time.

ID: gq1gky0

The only thing better would be actual use of motion controls, using the controller felt super weird until you play more of it

7 : Anonymous2021/03/06 15:29 ID: gpysp6j

Size to be expected also data doesn’t weigh

ID: gpyxpab

What’re you talking about? Installed warzone on my desktop and it broke through the table!

In all seriousness though, everyone knows it’s the RAM that really weighs the most, so careful opening up too many Excel sheets.

ID: gpyx0ej

Data does indeed carry a weight. An empty HDD vs a full one will have different weights.

ID: gpzhp8g

They clearly meant grams per bear inch.

Then you look at almost any western developed game sit at around 100+GB.

ID: gpz2qlr

I do not understand why Sony didn’t upgrade the PS5 memory to a terabyte. With games taking up so much space these days this seems like a huge oversight.

ID: gpyzulr

You could also compare waist size between the two cultures like that too

ID: gq2igkx

CoD: Almost every western developed game.

ID: gpz3vm3

What singleplayer game takes up that much space though? Doom Eternal doesn’t. The whole Master Chief Collection doesn’t.

While 50GB for a singleplayer game is good is just slightly below the average size.

Why can’t more people do that?

Almost double the size of Re7. i hope that means that the game is actually pretty long

ID: gpyy9js

Could be higher res assets too

Most of the data in video games now is uncompressed audio. It has nothing to do with actual game size and everything to do with bad optimization. Now that flash storage is near infinite, they don’t have to care anymore

This is actually quite big for a resident evil game, 7 and remakes 2&3 were ~25-30gb, this is gonna be one big RE game that’s for sure.

It will weigh? Never heard that phrase before, related to game storage, lol.

When companies had to get games onto cartridges some very talented people did amazing things with compression. Disks and your storage are cheap/ free to game makers so they don’t worry about that anymore. Nintendo’s Saturo Iwata helped fix some problems on gold and silver and managed to get enough space back to add the whole kanto region to the game.

If only they had a better way to store the games instead of downloading all that data and filling up your council so you end up having to buy another storage drive. Like an external storage device of some kind that the game would be on so you could plug and play

I really hope the rumours were true and the Village will come to Stadia, then it could be 100 GB and I won't care 😀

I know Stadia is kind of a punching bag these days, but that would be great to see RE8 on it.

It's only 6 hours long? Man, I really need to finish it then.

ID: gpyx8eh

RE4 is honestly too long, hell so is RE7. Plus RE7 goes way off the rails near the end. Definitely a game that would have been more interesting as a new IP rather then an actual RE game.

33 : Anonymous2021/03/06 18:38 ID: gpztlgg

Is that a lot? I have no reference point. How big is the hard drive in the XBox? How big are average games on there? I haven’t played a console since the Mega Drive and if I start running low in space I just whack another 3T hard drive in my computer.

Weigh? How many pounds/kg per gb?

ID: gq0w4bo

It’s actually not an incorrect way to describe the storage of information.

The math is complicated, but the concept is simple. In physics, information is stored in packets of energy (photons, which can be transmitted through fiberoptics), or matter (Most of the information we send through our ELECTRONics is done via electrons).

The more energy and matter, the greater the mass. The greater the mass, the more an object will weigh within a gravitational field (like earth’s).

Actually, it’s more proper to say that energy and matter are information. But that tends to be unintuitive for a lot of people.

Basically, information is made up of energy and matter, energy and matter have mass (matter is actually energy bound together by the fundamental forces) mass has weight within a gravitational field. So, information can be measured by its weight.

Back in my day games were much lighter.

39 : Anonymous2021/03/06 17:23 ID: gpzj6xx

Why the hell are they phrasing it as a unit of weight? Do you have to install it using 3.5 floppies and 50 GB of floppies has appreciable heft?

I really hope it’s better than RE: 7.

The odd numbered entries tend to be less enjoyable for me, so I have high hopes for this one.

(RE:4 on the Wii may be the greatest entry in the series. My former father in law, who was in his 60s, was even able to pick up the controls in minutes.)

Well, just buy the Storage Expansion. You get your 2TB and raised price.
