Cartridge game storage for PC

Categories: analytics

Modern computer games became very heavyweight these days. Here are the top10 games by size on disk.

  1. Quantum Break – 178GB.
  2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – 175GB.
  3. Destiny 2: Shadowkeep – 165GB.
  4. Red Dead Redemption 2 – 150GB.
  5. Final Fantasy XV – 148GB.
  6. Call of Duty: Black Ops III – 113GB.
  7. Gears of War 4 – 112.3GB.
  8. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – 101GB.
  9. Middle Earth: Shadow Of War – 95GB
  10. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – 77GB

This is a list of AAA grade games(high-quality graphics and other game assets that weigh more than average). SSD price today is about ~50$-~100$ for 250GB-500GB, so it’s almost clear that one SSD disk can fit one game + OS. For end-user, it’s almost nonsense to have a computer that can handle only one game per time, rather than have a console.

My prediction is that publishers will switch to SSD as carrying storage for games, they will invent a universal proprietary crossplatform cartridge format based on M.2 SATA interface.
