Forums - Gaming Discussion - How to fill up 32GB of storage

32GB of storage is...

...more than I will ever need.
...a lot.
...okay, I guess.
...hard to manage.
...definitely insufficient.
Great Britain?

How much storage is 32GB exactly? The answer is that it is relative. If you try to apply the worth of 32GB on one video game system to another, the result is not necessarily accurate. In fact, more likely than not, it's going to be wrong.

Sharing my personal experience with storage:

I bought a 32GB SD card for my 3DS once the 2GB SD card that came with the system had been pushed over its limit. The 3DS has the habit of converting storage into blocks, rather than using values like KB, MB and GB. 32GB roughly equate to 250,000 blocks and with over 50 games and about a dozen demos stored on it, I still have 190,000 blocks left; that's about 25GB of free space.

On my Wii U, where not all of the 32GB are available to the user (some GB are reserved for the OS), the situation is less pleasant. About 8GB left after downloading roughly ten games and an about equal amount of demos. Of course that makes you wonder where the space goes. And here's the kicker: A game like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD takes up less space than a game like Child of Light. On one hand you have a full game with a big world and countless things to do, on the other hand you have an RPG that struggles to reach the ten hour mark (despite turnbased battles that crank up the playtime).



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

It's the time to decide what happens in those turn-based battles that takes up all the space.

Or perhaps just "WOW this game engine"

I voted Great Britain, because it's the closest to the 640Kb that we actually have.

Its really interesting. The wonderful 101 took over 10GB of storage.... I could download MK8, NSMBU and Zelda Wind Waker HD with that amount of GB...

...You can turn VGChartz blue? I think you just blue (hue hue hue) my mind. I need it.



o·pin·ion/əˈpinyən/ - (noun)

  • - a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.
  • - the beliefs or views of a large number or majority of people about a particular thing.
  • - an estimation of the quality or worth of someone or something.

Just a friendly reminder that I did, in fact, graduate kindergarten, that I do, in fact, understand what an opinion is, and that I am, in fact, aware that whatever I just said was one. Carry on. :^)

Gnac can do whatever he wants with VGC.

Why would you do that? Green is beautiful. Switching it for blue? What kind of heartless monster are you?

 

@OP I endure 2006-2010 with something like 20 GBs( actually 17) on my OG 360. It was more than enough! :)



It is relative alright. Am pretty amazed by compression used by 3D World and as you said Wind Waker HD.

32GB would certainly not be enough on PS4 as even Knack needs 35GB of storage space. Same applies to XB1.
