The geometry compression is pretty impressive. 1 million triangles down to 14 mb? The more they can do to help lazy devs reduce file size the better

And risk a player having another game installed on their system? No way!

(sarcasm of course).

Game sizes aren't going to be reducing. The UE5 demo download on PC, which is short, is 100gb.

I don’t think that demo is a good measure of anything tbh.

The UE5 Demo on PC isn't optimized and packed in a way an actual game would be. Even Epic made that clear.

That's the whole project file. The packaged "game" is like 20 or 25. With other optimizations, UE games are almost certainly going to get smaller, or at the very least not increase in size as much as one would expect with much more detailed worlds.

For static meshes yes, the real question is what is the new bottleneck for detail? Memory? CPU?

I reckon it's why Sony focused so much on IO throughput. They did work closely with epic while I'm the design stages of the PS5.

Exactly my thoughts.

Don't believe the lies.
