Back in the days of the PS1 and PS2, we didn’t have to think about whether the latest game would fit on our console. We’d simply put the disc in the console and play. That’s not the case these days. Games are routinely taking up more and more hard drive space, with some even breaking the 100GB barrier. This is a problem if you’ve only got a 500GB hard drive installed as that’s 20% of your total space taken up by just one game. So how does Death Stranding fare in that department? Not too bad, actually.
Best Buy has accidentally revealed that the game will require a minimum of 55GB of free hard drive space. On the backside of the limited edition Death Stranding console being sold to celebrate Kojima Productions’ first release, it states that 55GB is the minimum required, but I think it’s safe to assume that number will grow over time as the game receives updates and possibly download content in the future.
It’s not the worst we’ve seen and, for a big AAA release, it’s actually quite good. Remember Red Dead Redemption 2’s 100GB? I’d rather not think about it…
Death Stranding is set to release on PS4 this November 8th.
