Mine was 45gb. So 135-45=90. So that is an optional 90gb download for those that don't want to stream the TV cutscenes?
To paraphrase, they are using pre-rendered videos over using the hardware to render the cutscenes. But the game has so many pre-rendered cutscenes that it could not fit on the disc, and thus the game will require you to always be online and with a good internet as to stream all cutscenes from Microsoft's servers in real-time. And if you have a terrible connection and cannot steam those cutscenes real-time, then you can always use your terrible internet to download the additional update of a whopping 75GBs worth of cutscenes for offline use, making the full game on release over +120GBs. This just feels like a very strange version of DRM.
I can see how the SIZE of a game would determine whether or not someone would or would not buy it, and what value for that size of a game you are getting.This thread is about the download size of a game not where you bought it, or will, or what your perceive the value of the game to be. Either discuss the download or don't post in this thread.
