The Call of Duty box sleeve, leaked by twitter user B4d_HabiT shows that the game requires 49GB of space “minimum” on the PS4’s hard drive for an install.
Now, that’s quite big – the largest install I’ve seen this generation was about 10GB, so why does CoD: Ghosts need to install the full game on the hard drive?
If all games are going to be like this, it will mean you can only have ten games on your PS4 before needing to upgrade to a bigger hard drive, and even then you won’t be able get your full games collection on there.
I think I’ll buy Ghosts on the PS3, and do the upgrade to the downloadable PS4 version, as no matter what it seems as though 50GB or so will be required to play the game on Sony’s new machine.
Let’s hope that all of the PS4’s mandatory installs aren’t as big as this.
