Sly trilogy file size

10 Replies 1,011 Views Created 01-07-2012

What is up with the file size on the sly collection? 23gb minimum free space needed, what is the maximum?. I really want this collection but the file size is so big I might have to buy it on the disk for twice the price which seems stupid when its on the psn store only 15 quid. I mean the jak and ratchet trilogies arnt that big so why does this one have to be massive?

Re: Sly trilogy file size

If you buy the trilogy, you get each of the three games as a separate downloadable, so if you just want to have one of them on your HDD at any one time, you could just do that - and you'll need a third of the space.

 

As to why they take up that much space: presumably because that's how big they are...

Yep. And redownload them as many times as you like, to the same machine.

 

Sly 1 = 5.3 GB

Sly 2 = 7.3 GB

Sly 3 = 11 GB

Unfortunately, unlike other online game services like Steam, when you download something from PSN it's not installed right away, but have to be installed. So you download the 11GB install files and then it needs another 11GB to be installed to. So during the download/install process you need 22GB. But after the install, the install files are deleted and "only" 11GB remains.

All signatures sucks, especially those with images in them.

Sounds like you need a bigger hard drive! In the meantime, note that any games you've bought from the Store can be downloaded as often as you like from your downloads list, so it's safe to delete Sly 1 and Sly 2 - you'll be able to download them back to that PS3 at any time in the future if you want to.
