    On the xbox store it says the game costs sixty dollars and its 5.5 gigabytes. For fuck sake I hope its a typo and instead the game is suppose to be 55 gigabytes.

    It also installs to over double that, around 12gb iirc on PS4 at least. Great game too I platted it in 51hours.

    Can you believe Mario 64 is only 8mb... worth 60bux? I think so.

    This is what I gather from your response

    1.) The game is short (AKA play the game less than a month)

    2.) Since the game is short most likely there is no replay-ability after beating the game

    Then why won't Microsoft add that information to the store? I feel ripped off just because the store makes it look like I'm paying for half the game.

    What, since when did we start judging the value of a game per gigabyte??

    The more content added to the game the higher the chance of people replaying the games. But okay my conclusion is "strange".

    He said a extra 12 gigs downloads to the game after the game is bought, the store only shows 5.5 gigs.

    It's just compression, they are only hosting 5gb and that's all you pull from them.
    Sure it would be nice if they show install size but with patch updates and expansions etc. that number would be forever changing and constantly needing to be updated.

    *cough* This is more a topic for best GBATemp topics in EOF *cough*

    I meant: a game like pokemon Red is also expensive these days for a few MB, can you believe it?!?! It is because they're or A: rare, or B: did cost a lot of money & time to develop. The devs need to get paid, you know?

    how the hell does 69k resolution textures increases the game play time? ho, i know.. very long loadings and 1 frame per second... this can make any game last for weeks

    ok back to seriously... i understand what you are saying but that's not true.. audio and textures takes the most space than the actual game..
    the space the game uses isn't an indicator if you gonna be able to play it for hours or minutes.. just means it's buffed with image quality or\and audio

    and you can tell how much content is in the game just by its size on the harddrive? so i guess games like binding of isaac for example must be very short and have no replayability, right?

    no, he said you only download 5.5gb and its gets expanded to about 12gb on your harddrive, you dont download anything extra

    People have gone from judging the game by its graphics to judging by its size. The gaming community can be strange sometimes.
