Remember back in the early days of the PS3 the virtues of the Blu-Ray drive were brought up over and over – and the biggest troll point online was that you now don’t need to get up and change discs? Well that may soon be over.
It has come to light, thanks to a leaked PS4 cover of Call of Duty: Ghosts that the game is going to require a 49Gb install which is only 1Gb smaller than the discs capacity.
Now I’m a fan of the Call of Duty series but let’s be serious for a minute here. There is no way that Call of Duty: Ghosts should be taking more room on a disc than Skyrim or Grand Theft Auto V.
So what is actually going on here?
Does the PS4 version of Call of Duty: Ghosts really have such incredible graphics that it’s so much larger than previous generation games or are we looking at a problem with how the next gen console handle compression?
My biggest worry right now is that the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are only releasing with a 500Gb Hard drive, and we need to install games on both before we can play them. So are we left with a maximum of 10 games that can be installed at any one time on the consoles?
I’m intrigued to see what the minimum install on the Xbox One is. It will be a serious sticking point if one console can handle smaller installs than the other.
Oh and make sure to vote on whether you think Battlefield 4 or Call of Duty: Ghosts
