Aside from its absurdly fast loading speeds, one of the major things benefits of the PlayStation 5 is its proprietary SSD’s ability to reduce the file size of games installed on it. Perhaps the most dramatic example is Subnautica. While the original game clocked in at 14 GB on PS4, the PS5 version is only 3.5 GB. That’s a file size reduction of 70%.
Anyone hoping for a similar file size reduction for Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, the PS5 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, is in for a bit of disappointment, however. According to PlayStation Game Size, the game weighs in at 81.3 GB on PS5, and that’s without any patches that may or may not be coming. For comparison, the original PS4 will eat up 86 GB of your hard drive space. So it’s an improvement, but not much of one.
It’s also unknown if that 81.3 GB includes INTERMission, the upcoming Yuffie DLC expansion, or just the base game. If it doesn’t, that file size could get quite a bit bigger. As long as it fixes the game’s door textures, however, that’s probably okay with most people.
