If you don't have one of those special PlayStation 4 consoles with a 1 TB hard drive, or you have yet to upgrade the standard HDD in the basic console, space can be an issue.
That's why it helps to know the install file size for games you plan to purchase. And of course, as you're definitely getting the anticipated Ratchet & Clank remake next week, you want to know how much free space you'll need, right?
Well, if you check the PlayStation Store listing , you'll see that you'll need to have 24.5 GB free on your hard drive. This is if you only plan on getting the digital release; you can always spring for the physical disc option, which I'll certainly be doing. It is a little annoying to have only a 500GB hard drive but because the PS4 makes it easy to install and re-install most games, it's not such a big hindrance. And of course, saved game data doesn't take up much space at all.
