Forums - Gaming Discussion - Final Fantasy 7 Remake File Size Revealed

I understand why people get excited about the size file but let's not get too ahead of ourselves here. This is still 100 GB without patch so I can safely assume Sqaure Enix does the bare minimum in optimization here :P

WTF? Still two discs? After 20+ years?

Um, this is part I of like III.  So we may go from 3 discs to 6 in total.

Why do you care ? You don't have a PS4

Maybe he is worried that it will need 10 carts on Switch or that the HDD won't allow to install it.

Ahhh yes. Didn't think of that. Yes it's problematic.

Things will only get bigger. Next gen most games will surpass 50-60GB easily and some of them will hit the 200 GB mark. Requiring 2 100GB BD discs.

Not even close. As usual, only a handfull of games will have huge file sizes.



Honestly I'm kinda surprise it took this long for more games to get this big. This is going to be the new norm I think.

Since PS5 supposedly only has a 1TB SSD, I'm not sure the leap will be that big.

In fact, since we'll get the option to chose which parts of a game we want to install, and un-install after we are done with them (remove the single player mode and only keep the multiplayer mode for example), disc space management may become less of a hassle.

Don’t care. I have a 4TB hard drive.

Love the games with a lot of details!!

I have a 10TB Hard Drive and it's only got 30% space left.

Next-gen could remain static with it's file sizes.
Audio and Video encoding has improved substantially over the last few years thanks to the likes of HEVC. - Which the current base Xbox One and Playstation 4 generally cannot decode natively within hardware, but next-gen should. (VP9 and H.265/HEVC.) - That could reduce video and audio file sizes by 50% or more at the same quality.

And of course games will still come via Physical on Blu-Ray.

Plus... We don't know how large the SSD on next-gen consoles is, it may only be 500GB for a base variant with a 1 Terabyte variant as a higher tier.
