Getting pretty insane with those storage req's, especially with RDR2. Storage space be damned.

the cynic in me thinks.... is this size just to deter people from uninstalling the game that they want people to be consuming for the next year, I think if I installed a game which was 175GB I would be slow to delete it if I wanted to stop playing for a few weeks... knowing that I would have such a huge redownload if I wanted to ever play it again.

I was actually thinking this being the next logical step into GaaS, where not only do you vye for gamers to keep playing your game, but you outspace your competition, quite literally taking up more space, thus having gamers choose to download your massive chunk of a game, or install 5 smaller ones instead.

CoD is now also doing this, an FPS game that featured small maps before, now demands just as much as an open world game like RDR2.

I wasn't wanting to go for RDR 2 for various reasons, but this demand would put me off entirely. I've got no time to spend a day or two downloading this. Hell, all the MMO's I play are nowhere close to this filesize, not even WoW.

175GB is just crazy though, like my larger drives in my PC are 3TB a pop, but if I put RDR2 and This on one of those that's actually using over 10% of one of those drives, that is insane to me.

Maybe it's time they need to look at the various portions of these giant titles and give users the options that old games had before such as "do you want to install videos or run them from the CD" but in games cases it can be "do you want to install 4k HD videos or stream them at 240p from youtube?"

Also... just in terms of the spread of PC's this will work on, the Min requirement is a GTX670, that user does not need to be wasting bandwidth and storage downloading some 4k Textures.

Companies need to start respecting their customer a small bit, they aren't the only ones making a game this generation, although I guess to Rockstar, RDR2 is their only game this generation.

It is indeed insane, and it makes me wish for devs to go back to perfecting the art of compressing and saving space, or at least a method of compression, that leads to unpacking the files and compressing the ones not needed at the time of playing certain parts of said game.

I'm just getting fed up with this "let's just unpack everything" crap, even for games, where we have gb worth of language audio files, that matter little to a native English speaker, who doesn't speak other languages, or vice versa for the opposite languages.

That would be 1/5 of my unlimited broadband package and that's not taking into account the huge patches which will come after the game has been reviewed to add the extra micro transaction bs to it.

Speaking of the ever increasing minimum requirements of PC's... the Min required GPU for this is a mid range from 2012 which can be gotten handily from Second hand stores for somewhere in the region of €50, PC gaming is costly though.
