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!
