Killzone: Shadow Fall is confirmed as having a larger than 50GB download size as Sony Computer Entertainment UK boss, Fergal Gara told Eurogamer during an interview.
Gara has explained the benefits of using the PS4’s ‘Play As You Download’ feature for the game and other digital downloading.
“The Play as you Download functionality…means you don’t need the whole file before you go. This is a little bit counterbalanced by the fact the files themselves are getting bloody big. Killzone: Shadow Fall is an uber file – I think it’s cracking on for 50GB. He adds: “It looks it, too, when you see it.”
“there are big innovations in the PS4 to make it more attractive and more easy gamer wise to want to download.”
Gara has warned the solution “is still a relatively tedious process. We’ve done a lot of work on pre-delivering files. It’s not perfect. It’s not seamless.”
“..it’s a major area of focus. It’s a major area of investment. The network will perform better on multiple levels, because it becomes not just a sales or gaming delivery but increasingly it becomes a social network. So it’s got to be a compelling experience on multiple levels.
But don’t worry, Gara reassures “we’re definitely moving in the right direction, and I’m confident when step on and understand its importance.”
