I was wrong.
Okay, so remember how we reported yesterday that Street Fighter 5 has a file size of just 6.4GB? That made us really happy- after all, a current generation game that doesn’t take out a sizable chunk of our storage space is a rarity these days. Turns out, however, that we jumped the gun on that- the 6.4GB download? That’s just the initial client. You end up downloading another 6GB after that to add up to a full total of 12.4GB.
12.4GB is, of course, still really small- once again, there was a Witcher 3 patch that was 18GB- this is a full game that comes in at two thirds of that file size. On the other hand, it seems to be par for the course with other fighters this generation- Super Smash Bros. came in at about 16GB, for example.
On the whole, 12.4GB is still not much to complain about. And since we already know that the game is going to be loaded with content thanks to frequent updates, we don’t need to worry about paying a lot for very little, either.
