    Welcome to *Storage war*.

    Some days ago i posted about install size of BF4 on PS4. Now COD Ghosts install size is bigger than Killzone:Shadowfall.
    It’s confirmed that it’s going to need 45GB on your HDD for mandatory install but then something happened so it will require 49GB.
    A new *War* started. Storage wars.

    To quote:

    Game cases are slowly being unearthed, with Killzone: Shadow Fall already being available in stores and now withCall of Duty: Ghosts being launched in less than 12 hours. That also means fans are mostly looking at what the install sizes will be on their brand new PlayStation 4.

    With 500GB at launch, you might think that you’re set for a while, though, that might not be the case. Killzone already confirmed that it’s going to need 45GB on your HDD for its mandatory install, and now it looks like Call of Duty: Ghosts will require 49GB.

    That’s essentially 100GB for those two shooters alone. But hang on, it might not be as bad as we think. The giant PS4 FAQ mentioned that physical copies will required cached installs. From that wording alone, it’s easy to assume that once you’re done playing the game, all the data simply deletes itself, and won’t need to be reinstalled until you start playing again. Given that you can play while you install would definitely support this theory. Or maybe the game deletes the data only when you insert a different game into the PS4.

    This would make much more sense, especially for those that plan on indulging themselves with every launch game available, not to mention games like DCUO and Planetside 2.

      is this one way to protect the life of Blu-ray? however if it deletes all the cached data, it will do the same thing over and over again every time we play games. Hmm.

      Any thoughts?

      Nah, I think it's to make sure that the AI for the fish is used to full capacity.

      That's bull%^&*...
      You're trying to tell me that there's a particular reason that those games will need ~50GBs of internal storage while their PC version will barely want anything over 15GB (if that) with exactly the same video/audio files and textures?
      In what way do data installation change so drasticaly between formats? These studios and companies are just being a$$%^&*@#, simple as that.
      In that tradition it renders a 1TB HDD as limiting as the stock 60GB/40GB HDD of the PS3 fat models and 1TB is pretty like one of the largest (and not cheapest) options you have today for HDDs. They are going to regret this soon, just remember me.

      The PC version is also a 50GB install. There is no difference. The thing i don't understand is why are they making you install the whole game. The disc can only hold 50GB.

      we are, slowly but surely, moving towards all the new stuff faster stuff: USB 3.0... SSDs... Terabytes...(man floppy discs seem so pathetic)

      sounds like the ps4 will only let you really own like 5 games before you start buying "cloud space"

      ...just watch

      Yeah, lol, better be cached data that deletes itself. Otherwise that PS4 is getting an instant HDD upgrade to the maximum HDD capacity I can find for it 7200 rpm. Or hell, even an SSD

      nice to have all the 4K contents on your HDD while only a few can use it

      I knew there was a reason I pre-ordered another computer (Amiga One X1000) as the PS4

      Installing CoD Ghosts on the Wii-U ATM....

      Storage wars.
      I mean you have a cluste**** system like gaikai and still you need so much space only to install the ****ing game.
      Makes sense.

      They want money and let's face it, you can't rely only on that clouds. You need more and more space.
      That's why Sony with PS4 allowed the use of bigger HDD's.

      4K = Movies, not games. If you need this amount of space only for a game like this, picture some game which is 4K. You need a secondary HDD for that or something else.

      I dont understand the problem. As I understand it you can begin playing within minutes of installing data and that data is being installed to the internal hdd 8 times faster so not really seeing the issue. When hdd is full delete games since as previously stated upon second or third installation you are able to play within minutes.

      Am I the only one thinking that it will need 45gb free as opposed to a 45gb install to run ?
