    So a leaked image of Cod Ghosts' cover sleeve has been shown. On the back of the sleeve it says that the required installation is 50 GB! On current gen COD games the required installation was around 50 MB, just something to think about and put what we are in for with next gen gaming in perspective.

    I'm not sure about PS4, but with X1 they spoke about Cloud Processing. That would, I think, remove the need for such a huge file to be stored on the X1 physical memory. GTAV took 8 GB of my 360's space, and it's incredible how big and beautiful that world is. For Call of Duty, and maybe I don't understand next-gen graphics and processes, it seems like it shouldn't need that much extra space.

    wurd..... I installed both discs and I'm sitting @ 22GB. As for the cloud, this proves the X1 will force us in it. Probably the small print for all the "must be online" BS.

    For anyone that has ripped a blu-ray disc before, those are typically 30-60 GBs with lossless audio/video and no subtitles or extra features.

    So yeah, these files are huge.

    If I remember correctly (i'll have to find sources later), but I believe X1 will offload some of this onto the cloud. And I'm guessing this is why PS4 has upgrade-able HD. (for the record i'm not saying X1 doesn't, i'm just going off what I have heard and what I believe, therefore I have not heard of X1 having upgrade-able HD).

    Cloud is a good thing, not a bad thing.

    -Redundancy of your data
    -More space
    -accessible anywhere (don't need to move hard drives around anymore)

    I'm still a skeptic as finicky as Live is sometimes, I could just imagine the "inaccessibility" issues and things like that, but I'm getting one so I'll be using it either way. On the conspiracy side of things eventually ALL our info will be on "clouds" controlled by those that oversee. At that point it won't be our info any longer.
