How is that the only explanation?
* The podcasters may use storage expansions on Xbox
* The podcasters may play different games on Xbox than PS5 which may be smaller (usually they won't have the same games installed on both systems)
* The podcasters may use bc extensively on Xbox, which increases the number of installable games because of the small sizes of Xbox 360 games
* They might care more about some PS5 games, so there are more games that they want to keep installed, limiting the variable space
* They may play games different to your arbitrary sample
* They may care more about PlayStation than Xbox, so issues with PlayStation are more important to them
* They may be filthy console warriors who get excited when they can complain about the system they like less (in this case: Filthy console warriors siding with Xbox)

Ok those are all solid variables of what's possible, thanks.

I finally got round to opening my copy of Yakuza: Like a Dragon (PS5 version) and put the disc in.
It started downloading an update and shit and said it was 40-something GB, but once everything had finished downloading and installing, it was 19.30GB.
I did a quick Google and it's meant to be 40-something GB at launch? :pie_thinking:
What size are the other versions?
How accurate are these:
The Yakuza: Like a Dragon download size is 36.39GB on Xbox One X, 43.9GB on PS4, and 43.2GB for PC on Steam.

Game Resolution has nothing to do with file size. Texture size, resolution can matter though. But pretty sure it is same for both. SS I think is having lower quality in some games.
Maybe they use different texture size. I guess we need a developer to give us info

Interesting, however if I recall that correctly OG Control did this too. It was being patched to smaller version.

Weird, what version do you have installed?



Edit: The SSR and that blue-purple glare are shit and annoying.

Same as yours - PS5 1.003.000, standart edition. To be 100% sure you can delete it and check how much space on ssd will be freed, but i think it's just a bug with size detecting on your side.

Also according to #PlaystationSize, Deathloop received a pretty big size decrease(~30%) with update
