The Digital Download Version of Killzone: Shadow Fall Will Apparently Take Up 50GB

Digital Distribution is a great business model with an increasingly intriguing amount of benefits for the end-user over time. One of those benefits on the PlayStation 4 side of things includes the ability to instantly demo some games via cloud without even downloading them, pause said demo and purchase, then resume playing the full game as it downloads in the background. Suffice to say, gamers expect the file size of AAA games to increase over time. There is a pretty decent amount of comfort from most of us about downloading games the size of a Blu Ray these days, as we understand the quality in what we are getting.

Games like The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto V sit nicely on my PlayStation 3 Super Slim, and although the download wait was a bit brutal, PlayStation 4’s download speeds will likely be a lot faster than the current PSN’s performance for such highly in-demand games. I am also glad I have these titles digitally that way they are idiot-proof against me selling based on a bad judgement call, they’ll always be there for me to play so long as I have this hard drive or this PlayStation Store is up and running.

All of that being said, and taking in to account a considerable upgrade for the PlayStation Network which is going on behind the scenes as we speak; it has become revealed that Killzone: Shadow Fall will take up approximately 50GB of data out of the PS4’s 500GB stock hard drive. There are probably some out there who would begin to assume the extreme here, that PS4’s hdd will only be good for storing around 10 games. I would say that’s a stretch in the least, since the graphics of a game like KZ:SF are going to be pretty up there in terms of quality as well as being an early title for the console therefore not privy to as many optimization techniques as later games might be.

Then again, I could be wrong; major AAA games could just keep getting bigger. Perhaps we should consider ourselves lucky that we can still pick up titles in the physical format and be a bit careful to pick and choose which we accept digital versions of. We should probably factor in whether or not we are willing to wait for the download times and if we are comfortable with needing a hard drive upgrade down the road or not. In any event, it’s great to have the choice and if you have the gigabytes you probably might as well spend them! Oh, and by the way, this is probably not including anything from their Season Pass / DLC schedule but actually just the main game.
