Red Dead Redemption 2 Install Size Revealed, and It's Big
Rockstar has revealed the Red Dead Redemption 2 install size, and as expected, it's quite big. Clear some space on your hard drive now.
We all knew it was going to be pretty huge, but I never expected this much. The physical edition requires 99GB. It looks like Rockstar has worked hard to get it underneath that psychological barrier of hitting three digits.
If you want to download the game, you'll need 149GB, which is a lot.
All of this is concerning. I don't believe the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One supports BDXL, which means the largest single disc you can have is 50GB. Obviously, the disc itself is 50GB, which brings the physical version "down to" 99GB from 149GB. However, Rockstar would need three discs for the physical version to ensure physical copies wouldn't have anything to download.
There are rumors about a multi-disc physical copy of Red Dead Redemption 2. Hopefully they are true, because if there's only one disc for Red Dead Redemption 2, you'll still be downloading 99GB of data before you play the game. And I know there are a lot of gamers out there with slow internet connections where 99GB of download is going to take a long time.
Not to mention these massive file sizes make me worried about patches. I think we might be entering an era with 50GB patches being the norm, like we saw with the last Call Of Duty game.Read More @ www.playstationlifestyle.net
