Game installs just keep getting bigger and bigger, which is a natural progression of course and large installs are hardly something us PC gamers are unfamiliar with. Now with the impending release of Bungies Destiny, gamers have been eager to find out just how much install space they’ll need to keep available for the upcoming online MMO shooter.
According to a listing on the Sony Entertainment Network, the game will hog 40GB in terms of download size, but there is always a chance that it could unpack to a larger install once the download has finished. This is of course not counting any space required for post release patches, updates, DLC and other content, which will no doubt follow thick and fast after the game has launched.
It’ll be interesting to see how this pans out on PS3 and Xbox 360 in terms of install size, although I imagine heavily compressed textures and sound files will aid in reducing the file size on the older hardware.
