I think Max Payne 3 and Rage were the biggest games I ever downloaded and I was very confused as to why the Rage files were so large.

What the actual ****? Did they include 21 different dialects of Chinese just for the fun of it? I mean an MMO or fully voiced RPG I could understand but a shooter?

Time to download this at your local wifi spot like a library or college. Sure, it may take a few hours but at least you won't kill your internet.

Also, shogun 2 was also pretty big as well.

Seriously! What the hell could this game have. Gun sounds, mech sounds, some voice acting for grunts/players/and that "Couple hours with two sides of a story". What is the rest? WHAT? Is there a secret 48-hour long audio documentary of the making of the game or some s***?

Like they said, 66%-ish of this game is audio. Just...What?

This game had better literally have my speakers reaching out and massaging my ears as I play.

Even if they did include 21 dialects of Chinese, there's no rational reason why these things couldn't be install time options to save everyone bandwidth and space. Office suites have been doing that since the 80s ffs.

If you buy it physical, you just don't need to download the 49.99 GB, you still have to install that 49.99 GB, just from your disk.


Yeah, space is not an issue, I have 6TB free.

I'm just not wasting bandwidth downloading 50GB when I can just install it from a disc.

Better get used to it. Now that consoles use blu ray, no point in the developers compressing any file, even a little bit.

But ~35GB of a 50GB game being audio? That's just bonkers.

Guess it's time to wait for the forum gurus to crack open the masses of "Common" files to find out where the size comes from.

Compression. I'm no audio expert but I do have a small recording studio setup and when I export some of my sessions, the comparison in MB's of an uncompressed WAV file to an MP3 is staggering.

I could jam a 3min song with drums and guitar tracks and the MP3 would be around 4MB while the WAV around 130MB. lol
