Moonlightswami, as he goes by on Twitter, already has his hands on the Xbox One after a Target shipping error, and has revealed the download/ install file sizes of Xbox One launch titles. According to Moonlightswami, all Xbox One games will need to be installed on the HD before playing, with file sizes ranging from a couple of MB to around 45GB. Unknown whether these numbers are the same for both physical and digital copies of the game
Keeping in mind the internal hard drive size of 500GB, will that be enough? You’ll definitely be looking to get an external HD if you intend on keeping all the install data. It was also stated that disc based games will automatically install on the hard drive as soon as it is put in the console. his copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts automatically started downloading as soon as the disc was put in.
The install sizes he’s reporting are as follows (via NeoGaf), Note: some games like Killer instinct have a full install of 3.4GB, but you can start to play at 2.4GB, showing how some games can be played midway through installation.
