I thought this was stupid when I first heard but it's apparently because Xbox One doesn't yet support multiple disc installs.

I wonder those like me with the digital purchase, will we get the 45GB preload, then hit with the 50GB separately or will the 95GB preloaded as a whole.

They should make their games a bit smarter. One "Forza common gamefiles" of 50-100 GB to put all the copy/paste stuff in, and then 1 separate app for FM7 for everything that is new to the franchise. I doubt they would need more than 5 GB for the latter! :)

I guess X1 doesnt read multilayer Blu Rays either cause i know that there are 100 GB Discs out there.


OT
thats the install size of F1 2017, AC und PC2 combined. Tuesday the demo drops

There will also be a new Specialty Vendor that will regularly offer unique cars for players to purchase
I don't like that... I hope the purchase will be with ingame currency and not with real money like some F2P...

I'm hoping it at least has HDR on the S. Horizon 3 does. Can't see why this wouldn't.

Why don't they just ditch discs altogether & sell it on a 64/128/256 Gb silly stick ? Packaging would be smaller, no need for a disc drives / failures.
Surely it's the same as people getting the digital version without having to download the thing no ?
And wouldn't reading it from a stick be a little like a SSD as in alot faster ?

Because that's too convenient.

I feel extremely fortunate about my new internet service.

At most, this 95 GB download will complete in about 28 minutes.
If I had been doing this on my old internet plan, this would've taken me 37 hours or more.
Can I borrow some megabytes? :lol:

I've wondered that too. I could be mistaken, but I think the two main hurdles there are costs and security.

Blessed be thy uncapped data. I made the best decision when not switching ISP's. They now how capped data, but they kept the original uncapped for old customers. This will still take about 2-3 hours for me, or more. About the same as DOOM I'm guessing.

Does anyone know what date it will actually be available as a pre-download (Pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition on the XBOX store)?

That wouldn't really help us PC users as it's all new code on PC.

It only took my 3 hours to update a 5 GB update in GT5.

I'm sure I can handle a 95 GB installation :boggled:
