Xbox One Release Date, Specs, Games, Price, Tech: Install Size for All Launch Titles Revealed
Microsoft's next-gen console is all set and ready to go for a worldwide launch next week, so the company is letting the final bits of information trickle out so there's no mystery left when the launch date hits later this month. Thanks to technological advances, game consoles are allowing players more and more storage space. But on the flip side, next-gen games are set to gobble all that space up.
When the Xbox One releases, it will do so with 8GB of RAM, and a 500 GB hard drive, and we have a good idea how most gamers will use that drive, as the complete install sizes for every last launch game for the new Xbox. Check out the list below, courtesy of VG247:
- Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag - 20GB
- Battlefield 4 - 33GB
- Call of Duty: Ghosts - 39GB
- Dead Rising 3 - 19GB
- FIFA 14 - 8GB
- Fighter Within - 9.2GB
- Forza Motorsport 5 - 31GB
- Just Dance 2014 - 22GB
- Killer Instinct - 3.4GB
- Lococyle - 13GB
- Madden NFL 25 - 12GB
- NBA 2K14 - 43GB
- NBA Live 14 - 9GB
- Powerstar Golf - 3.9GB
- Ryse: Son of Rome - 34GB
- Skylanders: Swap Force - 15GB
- Xbox Fitness - 246MB
- Zoo Tycoon - 2.6GB
- Zumba World Party - 24GB
We can't say if the size of the games will be the same for digital as physical copies, but for you folks planning on getting every last launch title, your hard drive will fill up pretty quick. The total space taken up by each game comes in at over 341 GB, over two-thirds of the console's total memory, which is before any other apps you might feel the need to install, not to mention the required day one update.
Microsoft's Xbox One launches on Nov. 22, and will be available in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and the United States for $499.
The new console claims an 8-core x86 processor and Microsoft hopes it will take the place of the family room cable box by letting you watch Blu-ray movies and TV through the console, in a "seamless transition" that lets players switch from playing games to watching shows and/or movies. It will come fully loaded with 8GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive.
A cross-country tour where Microsoft is demoing the system at various locations is already underway, and demo kiosks have begun arriving at certain retailers.
