We live in an age where everything can be accessed at the click of a button. Going to the local Best Buy or Gamestop is quickly becoming a thing of the past. The only thing that is getting in the way of an “all-digital” future is the capacity of our hard drives.
With the current generation of consoles, people are given 500 GB (or 1 Terabyte for some special editions) to use for games, DLC, apps or whatever the user wants. However, now that more games are coming out, people are quickly starting to see their hard drives fill up quite quickly. This is what is forcing 343 Industries to apologize for the size of “Halo: The Master Chief Collection.”
The Xbox One exclusive, when all is said and done, comes in at 65 GB. However, 343 says that the large size is necessary to keep all four “Halo” games on one disc. 343 Industries boss Frank O’Connor said that having all of the games on one disc is necessary to get the experience that they want for their users. O’Connor says that he “both apologize unreservedly for the irritance, and hope that the package and the way it works more than makes up for it.” It may also be worth noting that the Xbox One does support external hard drives operating on USB 3.0.
The “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” comes with “Halo: Combat Evolved,” “Halo 2,””Halo 3” and “Halo 4.” It also comes with beta access for “Halo 5: Guardians.” The collection will be released exclusively on the Xbox One on November 11th.
