Game installation sizes getting larger and larger isn’t exactly a new thing. We saw with the arrival of the current batch of consoles they jumped exponentially in size. Suddenly 50GB installs seemed the norm. Well, why not try 130GB for size. That’s the total install size for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Legacy Edition, making it (to the best of our knowledge) the largest game installation in the world today.

PlayStation 4 owners who pick up a copy of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition are also given a code which grants access to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered campaign one month ahead of launch. On the box which the code itself comes in, it reveals the full installation size of 130GB.

PS4 players can begin downloading Modern Warfare Remastered now and they're reporting it's a 40GB download. That means Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a cool 90GB on its own, making it larger than just about anything else out there.

All in all that sounds like a logistical nightmare for those going digital. On PC the entire package is going to be download only of course, and the hefty sum of 130GB could potentially take days on some internet connections. On consoles that's also over a quarter of the entire 500GB hard drive. Best start making some room.

Could a 130GB install size for COD: Infinite Warfare (or any game) be a big issue for you? Are game sizes spiraling out of control? Let us know your thoughts!

So SONY bought out Activision too...


Bethesda - DOOM: Marketing on PS4 exclusively until 2 days before launch
Square - HITMAN: Sarajevo Six exclusive missions
Activision: Playing COD 1 month before anyone else


DAFUQ!? How are people letting this happen?!

130GB for 2 games. The size still make no sense. Maybe the texture files & etc are 4K ready.

I remember in 2011 when RAGE came out and was 22 gigs and people were losing their mind. Now 22 gigs is a godsend. The size of game has skyrocketed in the past 3 years. I'd wager by 2020, 100 gigs will be the norm.

Meh the NES cartridge from 1983(1986 in europe) was a 750kb cartridges and many games did NOT fill them. :D
Compare 750kb to 22GB in only 30 years time, then compare 22GB to 130GB in 5-6 years time, not a big jump if you ask me :D

Prices for large SSD's are going down, believe it or not. The cheapest 1TB SSD's (even of the M.2 variety) are around $230. The cheapest 1TB HDD's? $40. Game sizes may be getting enormous, but storage is getting extremely cheap as well.

the storage isn't the problem, downloading 130gb of what look like the crappiest game in COD series is a complete waste of time.

It is an enormous waste of bandwidth, but I'm talking about game sizes in general.

130GB would take me several days to download. The size of new games is getting ridiculous!
