A few lucky members of the public have managed to get their hands on a full, retail version of Bungie’s Destiny and have revealed some pretty disturbing news.
If you want to play Destiny on your Xbox One, you’re going to need 40GB of HDD space to play the holiday blockbuster, meaning that the standard 500GB HDD that comes with all current Xbox One consoles is going to fill up pretty quick if this becomes a standard.
The odd part about this space requirement is that the Digital pre-load edition of Destiny is currently only 19GB in total on the Xbox One. We assume this means a hefty patch/unlock code will be heading towards people who purchased the game this way.
Cheers to the Imgur user who uploaded the packshots.
The online open world shooter, Defiance, will launch globally on April 2nd this year and is claimed to be a one-of-a-kind transmedia experience, based on the SyFy show set to air mid-April. We sure hope you have an extra 20GB of space floating around on your console HDD as for the full experience you are likely going to need it.
Based on information from PixelEnemy and Electronic Theatre at least 10GB of HDD space is required before you can play the game, despite only reserving 5.3GB for the game. The difference is said to be needed for updates and patches after release, with the first five DLC expansion packs weighing in at a hefty additional 10GB in total.
So, just to clarify – Defiance launches on April 2nd, requires 10GB just to play the game and another 10GB if you were to continue with all the expansions and DLC racking up a 20GB HDD usage. This is not likely to be a problem for those with the 250GB HDD and above, and for those with the 4GB memory consoles you will be able to store all of this required space on a USB memory stick. The Xbox 360 console allows for 32GB to be allocated for console data regardless of higher capacity.
