    On a PC I wouldn't care. On the XB1 however...

    Witcher 2 was pretty close with its 20GB patch on top of the 25GB install

    It will be a little tricky to install on a 120/128GB SSD for sure, I had to move several games to my 2TB HDD in order to install Max Payne 3. You will just have to pretty much stick to playing this game while it's installed.

    Ghost only takes up 30gbs not 40 according to my steam install.getting this for xbone first then pc the next month.leave me enough time to clear space off the drive.
  7. No one installs games to their SSD. If they do they are *****s.

    On the bright side, it has 13 maps (10 of which are probably DLC *cough*) :D

    Not true I have all my origin games on my 120GB SSD like battlefield 3 and 4 and crysis and all the need for speed games and im planning on buying 2 1TB Samsung Evo's for purely games (Next Build)

    I install whatever current game I'm playing on my SSD. Just one game at a time, though. I'll probably pass on Titanfall due to that size. I'll put it on my 1TB Raptor.

    Well by the time haswell-E finally comes out (correct me if I got the wrong socket, one with DDR4) those 1TB's should be more common which will bring them down alot, for example 120GB SSD's were like $500 when first released too

    Well, this may be hard to believe, but I save my final save games in an external hard drive and then I reinstall the game if I want to play it again. Pretty tough to figure that out, eh? :p

    On Xbox it is 40GB and requires 80gb to download and install it. So not much better in file size.

    Holy moley haha, your dedicated. I feel like just buying you a new SSD just because I feel sorry for you doing that

    Oh stop it. Don't tell me you're still on the, "I don't want too many writes to my SSD, because it will lower it's life" crap.

    Until we play it we won't know. Otherwise if it doesn't tickle your fancy, don't buy it. I have it pre-ordered and am looking forward to it, with a campaign or not.

    This was a forgone conclusion. Throughout the PCs history hard drives have been getting bigger and bigger to accommodate larger and larger programs and games. I can remember when I upgraded my 486 SX to a 120MB hard drive from a 64MB. Which makes me scratch my head when I think about the new Xbone. What was Microsoft thinking when they put a non-upgradable 500GB HD in the Xbone intending to move the industry towards all digital downloads? And it's really not that much of a price difference between a 500GB and a 1TB HD.

    What are you getting at? I was merely pointing out that it's a large size and without campaign maps...
