Yeah, waiting for that 2TB model circa late 2014... games are only gonna grow bigger.

Closed for renovations (I'm searching for more mutant children)

Why the shit cakes does Knack need 37GB...?

Wait, so this is a mandatory install for retail? I thought PS4 didn't have that? Pardon my ignorance.

Yosh call that cache but we don't know how it works... if it just cache the game while playing so if you play other game the cache is deleted or if the cache is forever like a install until you delete it yourself.

But to play Knack in both cases you needs at least 37GB free in the HDD.

All PS4/XB1 games will have big installs or atleast a big temp install of 5-10GB. That's because disc drive speeds only increased 3x, while ram sizes increased 16x (average vram probably ~10-14x). As the PS3 already had trouble loading everything from the disc without sacrificing quality it's a given that for these consoles most data must be loaded from hdd into ram.

For games that do a full install I imagine that it begins with a "small" 5-10GB chunk and installs the rest while you are playing or while the disc is in the drive and the console is idling or maybe even while you play something else.



does anyone know the exact specs on the the ps4 hardrive? im feeling both curious and lazy.

I am Torgo, I take care of the place while the master is away.

"Hes the clown that makes the dark side fun.. Torgo!"

I bet with padid that By end of 2014 the PS4 worldwide Lifetime sales will be larger than WiiU world wide Lifetime sales by 4 million. He wins if the gap is small than 4 million.
