Activision with a COD beer in their hand: Nopty nopty nope

ID: h0l2x78

I swear Activision are deliberately bloating their game sizes so you can only have their games installed on your drive and nothing else!

ID: h0l5aof

I agree.

They say it’s because they duplicated a ton of assets to reduce load times on HDD’s.

ID: h0l9eqe

And despite the size of their game, they apparently can’t fit an anti-cheat.

ID: h0m34fz

This conspiracy would make sense if they didn't let you uninstall different modes.

ID: h0l5393

Well it just limits how many different cod games I’ll indulge. Every time they try to push Cold War on me while linking MW to war zone I just laugh. Good luck with that.

ID: h0l69ce

Or more accurately, Activision: You mean we can fit even more MTX into the same package?

ID: h0m3vs6

Cold War is the worst cod technically I’ve ever played. In almost every lobby there’s someone who ends up getting stuck in the pause menu, parties constantly have issues, they randomly push updates and playlist updates with no mention causing other issues which then when you end up restarting your game you find out there’s some sort of update. These bugs still 7 months after the games release and will probably remain when the new cod comes out.

I know dev time was insanely short and they had myriad of issues but it plays and feels like such a crappy game in the technical side. I only even play the game because a friend group likes it and it’s fun to play together, but I wish we’d play MW instead.

I was gonna say something else but ranting about the game made me lose my train of thought. But basically I feel like Activision doesn’t care and is just enjoying the gigantic MTX profits so there’s no need to get their teams to fix their games.

Looks like Pied Piper was a success

amazing reference lol

Unpopular opinion but silicon valley was a bad show past season 2. Richard was a complete asshole time and time again with no development. The view could understand the first time he tried to rip his friends off as a learn lesson but it never got better. The consistently played the one Indian guy on cast as a stereotypical creep just like big Bang theory and hundreds of other shows written by white men. Worst of all the show suffered from walking deads problem where the same issue would just repeat itself season after season until the viewer didn't care anymore.

Hopefully this also means FFVII will be smaller on the PS5 version as well

ID: h0kz534

It’s 81.338 GB on PS5. PS4 version is 85.965 GB.


ID: h0l0nbx

This could be a serious size savings if PS5 actually has the yuffie dlc built into it.

The only reason to assume this is because there is no way to buy the PS5 version by itself (meaning not an upgrade from ps4) without the dlc.

ID: h0kzjkq

Ah damn, not much smaller.

Oh well

Well now I know what I’m telling my wife.

Looks at FF7R Intergrade

ID: h0lrmor

FF7R is 90gbs on ps4, lets see how much is the ps5 version e_e

ID: h0lrt4n

Apparently its 81gb for PS5

Not every cross gen game will make use of oodle texture. It just depends on how much a dev is doing and whether they implemented the feature.

Just like how some ps5 titles also don't take advantage of the super fast load times ( subnautica 2 for example).

SE also mentioned that the title doesn't make full use of ps5 feature sets so it looks like they did not use oodle texture.

Oh really? We definitely had no idea despite seeing a post about this weekly.

8 : Anonymous2021/06/04 19:09 ID: h0lnxfk

Cerny said this would be the case during his tech chat. I guess most were too busy complaining how boring it was to listen to the wealth of information provided about the hardware.

No need for asset duplication as well. that's gotta take a good chunk out too

The SSD is where I'd put all of my native PS5 games... IF THERE WERE ANY

ID: h0lqjbd

Control ultimate edition is crazy small on ps5 compared to ps4 or xbox, even xsx.

ID: h0l8gbw

I know right? I mean Demon's Souls, Returnal, Miles Morales Sackboy, and Ratchet next week...... WHY AREN'T THERE ANY PS5 GAMES!?

ID: h0mco61

Can't believe you forgot Bugsnax

ID: h0lbn0c

Including two cross-gen games isn't really helping your argument.

Uh, duh? This is exactly what Mark Cerny said and Sony has been feeding us for more than a year.

ID: h0mcwy7

Yes, but a good percentage of the community are technically stupid, in the sense that they are stupid about anything technical. Therefore, we need articles like this at the top of Subreddits so casual gamers scrolling headlines can read it and go "Oh! I GET IT"

12 : Anonymous2021/06/04 22:52 ID: h0mh8bx

Activision needs to learn. But they wont.

13 : Anonymous2021/06/04 18:03 ID: h0leato

It's more like games have stopped getting larger (for now). AAA titles especially are still fairly big after the fact.

14 : Anonymous2021/06/04 17:37 ID: h0lat8k

Wish we had more native ps5 games to gather data from...

Sony: “Best we can do is PS4 games at 60fps or 4K”

Now imagine if the new God of War were a native PS5 game…

ID: h0lz8gf

There will still be a native PS5 version of God of War...

ID: h0lqlyn

It will be.

If only we had more native ps5 games instead of tons of cross-gen ports

ID: h0l3v6x

Crash Bandicoot 4 is a cross gen game & it’s literally half the size on PS5 as it is on PS4 so I’m not sure if your logic holds up.

ID: h0l2lp1

What does that have to do with anything? Bloody hell, this is getting stupid. This applies to all native PS5 games, cross-gen or not e.g. Miles Morales or Control.

ID: h0l2u4c

People just have a hate boner for cross gen games right now. Another thing to cry about because sony isn't showing anything new

ID: h0l3zsu

Imagine something so insignificant requiring all your cognitive ability for the next year and a half.

17 : Anonymous2021/06/04 16:59 ID: h0l5dqp

Not this compression post again! Can we talk about the release date instead, why june 11th , could be bit early right ? like now.

ID: h0lfiji

Patience my friend
