Killzone: Shadow Fall to be a 50GB download
Those who choose to buy Killzone: Shadow Fall on the PlayStation Store may be in for a bit of a surprise at the sheer size of the download.
The PS4 launch title is a whopping 50GB which is probably as good a reason as any for Sony to institute their new Play As You Download service on the PS4.
MD of Sony UK Fergal Gara said, "The Play as you Download functionality, for example, means you don't need the whole file before you go. This is a little bit counterbalanced by the fact the files themselves are getting bloody big. Killzone: Shadow Fall is an uber file - I think it's cracking on for 50GB. It looks it, too, when you see it."
“It is still a relatively tedious process” he added. “We've done a lot of work on pre-delivering files. It's not perfect. It's not seamless. The file version of the game versus the disc version of the game maybe needs to go through additional QA and additional testing. Some of the problems that have occurred have occurred on older machines, which of course when you go into the next-generation you at least get to reset and start again and everything's the same age and new. That helps.”
Killzone: Shadow Fall is out alongside the PS4 on November the 15th in North America and November the 29th in Europe and the UK.
