We are almost under a week from the release of The Last of Us Remastered on PlayStation 4, just over a year after the release of the original game for PlayStation 3. While PlayStation 3 required installs of some games, PlayStation 4 takes advantage of it way more often, with much larger install sizes a lot of the time. There are some games that do not require much space, but The Last of Us Remastered is certainly not one of those.
Some copies of the game has made their way into the wild and according to the back of the box, The Last of Us Remastered will require a 50 GB installation. This is basically 1/10 of your hard drive space available on your PlayStation 4, without even taking into account the portion taken up by the OS for the console itself.
The good thing is that the PS4 allows you to play games with partial installs, so you can delete the install at some point if you aren’t using it, and reinstall it down the road. A large install size like this should at least guarantee no slowdowns or long load times, so it hopefully will be worth it.
Look for The Last of Us Remastered next week on July 29, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
