Of late it is starting to be mentioned that hdd limits on the xb1 are happening,out of these 14 games 9 are on disk,5 are dd.now on the back of the game boxes there is a specific amount of hdd that is required,but in actual fact from what im seeing on console,it is alot less in some cases once installed as follows:
//-GAME- // -Required space- //-actual space used with updates-//
AC4 40GB 20.8GB
BF4 40GB 34.4GB
RYSE 47GB 36.3GB
FORZA5 35GB 31.8GB
NFS:RIVALS 40GB 15.4GB
SKYLANDERS:SF 20GB 15.7GB
ZOO TYCOON 10GB 2.6GB
LEGO MARVEL 10GB 6.4GB
DR3 35GB 23.2GB
ALL DISK GAMES TOTAL: 227GB ACTUAL TOTAL: 185.7GB
PSTAR GOLF, KI,HALO:SP, PEGGLE 2, KS:RIVALSpsAll are DD's:14.4GB
ALL GAMES TOTAL: 241.4GB ACTUAL TOTAL: 200.1GB
So the overall total is actually 200.1GB which is a fair bit less than stated required and as all of the full AAA games are on disk,this shows me that this panic about storage is not nessecary and stick with hard copys for the time being,it also brings up questions for me on how much of this data is actually on the hdd and on the cloud and retained on the disk.I dont know if the above numbers match that of DDs of these AAA titles.
Finally and primilarily it also shows that the runnings of the xb1 and its harddrive you just cannot go by all these numbers and stats on how it actually works,and its not a disaster, but a pretty amazing bit of kit.
