It will be the same install size whether is digital download or installing a retail copy.

Take a look on Google. All of these filesizes are out there. They're mostly between 30 and 50gb.

The bigger question is how long will these things take to download? 50GB is ***** huge.

Well you'll be able to play after downloading only a portion of the game so you could download 4-5GB presumably and start playing right away. The rest will get downloaded in the background.

I have to work so I'll just download everything I want and leave it in standby so it'll be ready once I'm home.

I see this a lot. Downloading is different from installing. Downloading from the internet is something that varies by connection speed and for 50GB could potentially take a very long time. Installing data straight from a local disc is more of a uniform time and isn't nearly as long.

Exactly. This is why the digital thing is kinda dopey. Especially on launch day when everyone is trying to download the same game. You could probably walk to your local gamestop and back and install before it finishes downloading.

Until we all have magical uberfiber connections, digital is best only for smaller games.

My PS4 downloaded games like KZ and AC4 in a matter of minutes. Maybe 10 to 15.

Canadian ISPs are the devil with bandwidth caps. I only have 80gb/month so I certainly am not going all digital any time soon.
