Gore and glory

It's far from the biggest PlayStation 4 game released thus far, but we can sense Snake grimacing at Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's beefy 25GB PlayStation 4 install from here. While the eye-patched icon won't need to smoke an entire packet of Marlborough's as the data is transferred to Sony's new-gen system, you may want to consider upgrading your hard drive if you haven't already.

The information comes courtesy of the game's Japanese PlayStation Store page, meaning that the figure may vary slightly in Europe and North America. DualShockers reports that the PlayStation 3 version will eat up around 11.7GB. We're getting agonisingly close to the sequel's 1st September release date now, and in order to celebrate, creator Hideo Kojima's released this rather gory promotion poster. Gross, huh?
