Now this is indeed quite interesting to say the least. Wonder what's really going on here. Need details.

What are you talking about? The size is 64GB, it needs space to unpack.
and why a console that have faster decompresssor faster i/o and definitely faster ssd need to to leave files less compressed than on Xbox in its smallest SSD?

Why don't you ask Activison and Sledgehammer?
Does this have a shitty extra mode on PS systems like Cold War?
Who knows? Tweet/email them.

I'm not really sold on the game but I'm very happy about this. The install sizes for COD games are crazy. It's what has put me off from re-installing any of the games.

They are incredibly large in install size.

OP needs to be updated.
These are the required sizes to install that on PS needs more temporary free space to work with it that is not part of the game files.

The game on PS5 uses 64GB after installed that is close to Xbox.

BTW the link in OP has the actual correct sizes but OP choose to make the OP with the wrong data.

Is this the same On-Demand streaming feature that can take up to 24gb of data bandwidth on the daily? Yeah, no thanks.

Nope... and I believe they are using the up higher installed size (maybe with additional localization files?).

These are the actual size after installed.

PS5 needing 90gb is correct. It's not like the game will install if you only have 64gb of space left on the SSD.

If you're that tight on space, you'd have to do a workaround and delete a game off your SSD, install COD, and then re-install that deleted game back assuming it also doesn't need extra space to unpack.

It needs space to unpack the file, the size is 64GB, the difference is 3GB.
Let's find out tonight when pre-loads start.
The actual file size is way lower than 64GB... it just maybe there is a combination of localization files that reaches 64GB (EU base version is 57GB that is the biggest one but there are some regional localization downloads depending where you are that can make it a bit bigger I guess... speculations of course).

Just realized I read this wrong and when they said texture streaming, along with the fact they said "up to 30% - 50%+ of a file size difference on next-gen console and PC," I thought they were referring to how its streamed from the drive. But it appears they mean actual streaming.

I hope there is an option to just install the textures.

Yeap actual streaming.
They are comparing with previous games where everything was in the disc so it reached 150-200GB (and people complained a lot)... now they are working with some assets streaming from servers decreasing a lot the install size.

We'll see how good it is. Might be good. Might be a lot of textures popping in. I got space. I avoid installing SP, but my download for MP will probably be half anyway.

Pre-load is already up in some places... that is how PlayStation Game Size got the sizes.

Who the fuck is @_SomeMexicanBoi? And why should we believe him?
Their source is Call of Duty website, but they left out the actual install size and only showed the required disc space.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Australia and places near there's time :messenger_grinning_sweat:

In this gen of console it seems occasionally that software can have an effect just as much as hardware.

I have unlimited bandwidth and such currently, but many don't but I dont want any hiccups simply because of server issues. Give me the option to download it. I got the space.

It probably should have an option to install everything imo.

It will be interesting to make some tests of how it compare when you are offline or online :messenger_fire:

MW and I think BOCW did. I know in attempt to make MW smaller they took out some of the high res textures but you could download it.

I am guessing they will make it an optional download but who knows.

How many GBs was Cold War at launch for Series X?

Only had MW2019 and the install size was like 180GBs when I purchased earlier this year.

Even bigger is XSX is way smaller than PS5. Does it mean PS5 isn't using the kraken-oodle stuff in this game?
Hard to say, because big assets are texture and sound (don't forget this part) and possibly pre-rendered cutscenes, so it's rather 2.5 variable as of what it could be : )

With sounds, there isn't sadly some magical compression like Oodle-kraken.
