So it's safe to say this same issue is on the PS4? Not the install speed, but that the same HDD space is taken up regardless of physical or digital.

Yeah it's pretty annoying.

PS4 allows you to swap in a bigger drive.

Xbox doesn't, but if you're savvy you can take it apart and install a larger drive but it will void the warranty. I'm going to install one as soon as my warranty expires.

Untill then it's external data hopping.

What do you mean by external data hopping? It's not like you'll need more than one external drive that you'd have to swap for others, kind of like how you would have to do with PS4's internal if you don't want to waste the original one that came with it.

Wow! Why did that change? Buying physical used to always save space as opposed to digital.

Does anyone know if the PS4 is the same way? This is kind of making me reconsider getting a One.


Because reading data off an HDD is faster than an optical drive, thus better performance.

They are going to allow a external drive through that expansion slow on the left end of the XBONE so don't worry its coming and I'm sure it will be incredibly overly priced.

wtf are you talking about kid, MS already allows us to use external USB 3.0 hard drives, I'm currently using a 2TB one on my xbox one right now.

You can just go out and buy a 2TB HD when it's on sale and you format all of it for the XB1. They aren't that expensive at all, hell you can get more than that.

yeah I paid like $75 bucks for my 2TB drive I'm using with all my games I just have 20% of it used.
