They never mentioned the specific sizes which you can see as you quoted them.

He clearly says he has 4 games installed and his SSD is full. He named 3 of them COD, Demon's Souls & Returnal. So it's just a strange thing that doesn't add up. I wonder what the biggest game install currently is. 

COD is 225 GB, Demon's Souls is 52 GB, Returnal 56 GB. If his forth game is like, Hitman, that's 438 GB. It may not be full, but there's still that weird issue of needed 2x the space when you patch.

 

Add in save files, trophy screenshots, videos, etc, it's not hard to imagine you're using 500 GB or more.

 

Edit: Or it could be Destiny 2, which would add another 100 GB, making it like 550 GB used.

Holy Crap! Hitman is 438GB? That's gotta be the largest install on console ever correct?

No I think they're saying all 4 of those games is 438gb total

I was. And this is assuming his 4th game is a PS5 game. There are PS4 games larger than Hitman.

Ah ok. Thanks

I'm glad I never buy COD. Borderlands 3 is 90 GB (smaller than on the PS4 100+ GB) and I can't wait to finish it to free up that space. I wonder if God of War Ragnarok & Horizon Forbidden West will be reasonable with the better compression of current gen games. By then the SSD slot will be accessible for expansion.

I have Immortals, Miles Morales and Borderlands 3 Installed. I had Destruction whatever installed too, but I deleted it. Returnal actually complained about installing the patch at first because of the lack of space when I bought it even though I had I believe 90 gigs free or so. Think right now I'm rocking about 100 gigs to go till it's full. It's just going to become more of a problem, but I hope they open up the other slot before it becomes a lesser problem. Of course I'm not sure how much a 1TB SSD goes for nowadays, but I believe it's about close to $300? Whatever the price that upgrade is going to be a nasty bullet to bite especially since not all SSDs are compatible.

M.2 1TB are about between $100-$140 right now. Some of them can be up to $200 depending on the speed.

The SSDs that will work with the PS5 will be more expensive than that. There aren't many that could be compatible with the PS5 yet, so the cost will probably be prohibitive for many. That's why the ability to move PS5 games to the external is a good compromise for the time being.

I forgot about that. May get another external. I have too many though lol. Oh well likely another 4TB one like I use for the PS4 games.

Oh yeah, I forgot that the PS5 SSD is way faster than most of the SSD available right now.

Yeah I figure an extra TB would be enough to last me the Gen. I delete most things off my SSD when I beat it. I'll wait for the $150 price range for a internal SSD.

People like to make excuses for games lacking basic features. I remember catching hell years ago for saying that you should be able to pause in Dark Souls if you're playing offline.

They kept saying it wasn't designed for offline and death is cheap anyway. None of that matters. If it CAN be played offline, then you should be able to pause it, period.

Pause in any Dark Souls game is basically "save+quit". The game is constantly auto-saving after every relevant action. So if you have to do something, it's a couple button clicks to quit to the game's main menu, and then you'll be right back where you were with no progress lost (except during boss battles) when you load back up. Quitting during a boss battle puts you back outside the fog gate and resets the boss to full health. Not ideal, but only a few minutes lost. The only time you can't quit at will is if you are invaded or engaging in co-op.

Just finished Returnal. I think I'll be hard pressed to find a game I liked better in 2021. And if we do get some games that top it, then it's going to be a very good year.

Chia coin mining requires proof of storage rather than GPU cycles, so if that takes off it's going to wreck the SSD market just in time for PS5s to become expandable. Prepare for a possible bloodbath.

That's why Sony has a good compression system. The game sizes are way lower then MS XB series.

I can’t even beat Phrike yet, I’d love to see the second biodome

Lucky you finishing Returnal before v1.3.3 found its way to your console.

Nice. I finished Act 1 yesterday and unlocked a whole bunch of new weapons and the grappling hook.
I was surprised I was able to beat both the 2nd and 3rd biomes bosses on my first try getting to them.

I did have a good set of artifacts and parasites with the Astronaut so I was prepared to die and I didn't.

I even wasted some ether in the reconstructor in the 2nd biome just to play it safe.

 

The fourth biome was not nice to me and I got killed pretty quickly.

In total that was probably about a 3-4 hour run in two days before I died in the Echoing Ruins.

I'm glad I didn't experience any issues while playing that run. It was really amazing.

Can't wait to did in deeper in the future. The Cycle Continues.

 

I also haven't updated the game to any of the latest patches.

All in all I died 15 times in my playthrough, and it was all in the biomes as I never died fighting a boss. For the most part the bosses seemed to get easier, oddly enough. Most my deaths came in the third and fifth biomes (can't remember their names). Those robot drones that shoot bursts of little rockets and kamikaze at low health really gave me fits.

I must just suck at Returnal. I probably just am not as good at shooters. I'm still trying to beat the 3rd biome though getting a bit closer each time.
