Forza requires 35GB

Well 500GB is turning out not so big after all. I see myself buying a new 1TB HDD by next year, these next gen games are going to be massive from now on.

Thoughts?

Xbox One HDD is not upgradable, making this a particularly major problem.

Ive been rocking a 40GB PS3 after my 60GB died the yellow light of dead 4 years ago. It's a pain in the ass but not really a big deal.

500GB should store 10 50GB games. Not bad.

you can get external hard drives for it. i got a 1TB for like $50 a couple years ago when my computer melted,

500gb is big enough

I can't see it being a problem for me at least. I doubt I'll have need of having 10 or more games installed at any one time. Perhaps later on space might get a bit tight depending on how much I download dlc and want-not but that likely won't be an issue for several years plus many games by then won't be ones I'll have an urge to replay immediately so by then I can clear a lot of it off the HDD. 500 GB should do me just fine for most of if not all of next gen.

I was thinking the size of game demos :o and the possibility of seeing games shipping with more than one Blu Ray disc :P

Can you install games to an external HDD though?

Lets keep a tad real, you would not have 500GB of available space. Its going to be less. However, at the same time not all games would require that much memory. The problem I see with 500GB is that this space is being shared with all the other Xbox One features such as DVR, Apps, Demos etc.

I think it is obvious that there are going to be bigger hard drives later on. That is what I get from this.

The internal hard drive in the Xbox One isn't upgradable though, a console with a larger hard drive appearing on the market after Christmas isn't going to help early adopters. Though if you can install games to external hard drives it's not much of a problem, but if you can't it's a pretty big one.

Edit: Actually just looked it up there, on launch external HDDs wont be supported at all. Since all Xbox One games are a mandatory install people will fill that space up fairly quickly. Hopefully they'll get external HDD support patched in quickly and allow installing to external HDD before it's an issue

The smaller HDD size is one of my big annoyances from the coming gen.

I'm not the type to complain much. I just can't help but be baffled by this decision. I've been juggling the stuff on my 250gb PS3 for the last 2 years. I like to download movies because, frankly, I'm out of space for disc boxes. Downloading movies should fix that issue, but it just becomes a whole new way of space management as I have to delete an old one if I want a new one. I have to delete a few if I want to install a new game like GTA which requires such a big space investment to install.

This just seems like a short sighted view. I mean yes, I know this is "first world problems" and it's not a deal breaker. It just seems puzzling when we have so much bigger HDD available in the world to hobble systems that are clearly designed around being online machines with such rudimentary and small storage options.

Lol consoles requiring installs. Put disc in and play was one of the bonuses of consoles..

#14 Posted by GAJY_FILTH (112 posts) -

I'm just gonna open it up and stick an SSD in there and install one or two games at a time.

I don't play more than one or two games a year on consoles anyways, I mean I'll only get an Xbox One for Forza 5 if it's good and then there are no other games I want.

I don't think 500GB is enough. I didn't even think it was enough before these ridiculous install requirements for certain games were announced.

@barrybarryk: I was saying that in reference to the PlayStation 4. People are ignoring the Wii U. I can do the same with the Xbox One.

If you really buy into this X1 as a multimedia box (which MS is marketing as), then 500gb could very easily be a problem. But I'm still going just fine on my 20gb 360, so I kinda shrug my shoulders at all this. As long as save files don't show any similar bloating, I'm sure I'll manage with the standard HDD.

All games are mandatory installs (you can't play off the disc). Forza 3 and Dead Rising 3 are 35GB each and Ryse is 47GB. If you bought those 3 games at launch they'd take up 117GB on day one.

This is why depth of mechanics should be the focus of games these days, and not a plethora of content.

What the hell was MS thinking when they decided to make the hard disk non upgradable?

Never mind... they never had thought process to begin with.
