The PlayStation 5 can make use of impressive compression tech to help cut down on file sizes, but Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade hasn't seen much of an improvement over its PS4 predecessor. Last-gen Final Fantasy VII Remake took up a whopping 86GB or so, and Intergrade isn't much better. According to PlayStation Game Size, it weighs in at 81.3GB without a day one patch on PS5.
It's not quite the reduction that we were hoping for, but it's not the end of the world. Now we just pray that those awful texture issues are fixed...
It's also unclear whether this total includes the Yuffie expansion, INTERmission. We don't yet know whether that's an entirely separate download, or whether it's mostly contained within Intergrade. If it is separate, then this overall file size could get quite a bit chunkier.
Do you have room for Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade on your PS5? Start deleting stuff in the comments section below.
I have AC Valhalla, ME Legendary Edition, Genshin Impact and Monster Hunter World installed. Guess one of them will have to go to make room for this :S
My PS5 storage space is crying...
I completely forgot this released in a week, but it's kinda hilarious that Square doesn't really have much for file optimization.
@blinx01 My PS5 storage space have been crying since launch day.
It can’t just be me who has had to re-download the game on their PS5 so they can upload their save file and will then have to download the game again when this comes out?
@Thrillho I wouldn't even consider transfering my saves if I didn't know it auto-pops all trophies.
I will play the upgraded game from the beginning but I'm not sure I want to do everything for the platinum again (and getting another platinum is always nice).
I didn't have room for cold War let alone this game lol
I've been using a 4TB external drive for a while now. I highly recommend it.
I couldn't do without it at this point. I don't install PS4 games on the PS5 at all, and it's really useful for storing some PS5 games now too.
Regarding FF VII, I keep forgetting that this is out so soon because of Ratchet and Clank.
The entire file is just that one door. You know the one.
I have no room on the PS5's SSD but I do have a spare external HD I can put it on ready to transfer at anytime for when I want to play it. Be so glad when we'll be able to you know actually PLAY the blasted games using External Storage instead of just using it to store them and nothing else.
I'm not a hoarder and I don't have a data cap, so thats not a problem for me. I was happy with the 406gb we got with ps4, so the 630gb+ (along with smaller file sizes) is more than enough.
If there is no payed upgrade from the ps+ edition, i'll be waiting for a deep sale anyway.
Still waiting for the option to just pay for the PS5 upgrade having redeemed it off PS+. Can’t believe people are paying a full price just to have an upgrade honestly.
So how's this work if you have the the ps4 version on disk, insert disk and download the ps5 version or do I need to install both first then delete the ps4 version?
totally pointless article is pointless.
@Iroha totally pointless comment is pointless
Have they said how much the upgrade from the PS4 disc version to ps5 is yet?
Yeah pop in your ps4 disc install it, then when your on the game where you can see available dlc and such usually there's an extra button that's says "upgrade" then you'll have to install that and then remove the ps4 version
@Orpheus79V you're not wrong. Self-fufilling prophecy, eh?
I have plenty of room on my PS5 SSD right now as there are only 3 games installed (the only PS5 games I own): Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, and Astro's Playroom. Can't wait to add to that list with this game and Ratchet & Clank.
I am willing to bet that the Yuffie mission is included in this file size already - because if you actually buy the full game, you automatically get the Yuffie mission, right?
I can't wait for this to release. I am so glad I waited to replay this game since losing my completed save file.
The one thing I wish I was allowed to do is claim the free upgrade and pre-download the PS5 version now rather than have to wait for release day (I didn't see where I could claim the PS5 upgrade, yet).
I will say that is another fantastic feature on the Xbox side - you can download any game you want using the App even if you don't own it, yet (you obviously just can't play it until you actually own the game in some capacity - digital purchase or by inserting disk).
I did this for both Cyberpunk 2077 and for Resident Evil Village when they went up for download, and it was great to have everything ready to go for when my games arrived from Amazon on their release days.
EDIT: Yes, I am aware that digital games pre-load on Sony's side as well. But it's only for digital versions.
You would think with 100GB discs they would try to put everything on disc to safe people from killing their storage.
@Voltan We don't know if all the trophies will auto pop from PS4 to PS5 though?
@Snake_V5 honestly I don’t remember when I saw this but I did see someone “confirm” that they do
@solocapers free upgrade but the yuffie dlc is £20.
You'll probably have to download the ps5 version and use your play disc as a key
@Voltan There’s a message that pops up on the PS4 version when you use the new save upload feature that says the trophies will pop. Def confirmed .
@RubyCarbuncle You’ll have a long wait. Other than the M.2 slot, there will never be external storage on the PS5 that will let you play PS5 games.
@Loftimus Cheers pal. Couldn't seem to find that info.
@Shstrick So that means of course that only the new episode will have to be done on PS5 version then.
@Flaming_Kaiser wouldn't thaf defeat the purpose of the ssd though
I think they said the reason the PS4 version was so big was because they used so many unique assets to build the world - besides the interior of the reactors, every area of the game looks different. If that’s the case then it makes sense that the PS5 version would also be big, especially if they’re using higher resolution textures. Still pretty impressive that the file size is smaller than the original.
ive the ps4 disc but buying the ps5 disc been a fan when the original came out , cant wait to play through this again.
Dude, squareenix come on, please ask insomniacs or other sony 1st party studio how to compress your game. Or maybe that's unreal engine problem?
@solocapers The totally outrageous price of 0.00 (insert currency here).
@ShogunRok Extra props on the subtitle. XD
It’s a cross gen game, so to be expected.
Jesus Christ that is ridiculous.
Looks like I’ll have to delete a few games.
It doesn’t read off the disc.
It’s all installed on the ssd.
It was the same way with PS4.
I buy disc single player games primarily to save on bandwidth.
hopefully they'll have the expandable storage update soon
My wallet is fighting which title to pick up first FF7 Intergrade or Ratchet & Clank RA. Both great titles. Ah the decisions, decisions.
@Athrum Delete Genshin. It's mobile trash.
@Uromastryx Hi, Hi, I just want to ask, what if I buy the PS5 intergrade physical disc and use it to transfer the PS4 save data? Do I need to still installing the 80Gb PS4 version first (I use PS4 physical disc)? Can you clarify this?
@darksoul77 Hi, I have the same question too. I just want to ask though, what if I buy the PS5 intergrade physical disc and use it to transfer the PS4 save data? Do I need to still installing the PS4 version first (I use PS4 physical disc) for the transfer patch? Can you clarify this?
Mine is already there, waiting for the update, i guess i will free up 5GB. XD
I'm not too sure, but I belive you will need the ps4 version installed, the upload save ability will be part of the FF7 menu when you start the game so regardless if you've installed the ps5 version, you'll still need the ps4 version there to upload the save then you can remove it, start the ps5 version and click download save. Pain the backside to be honest. But to say again I'm.not 100% sure, because for AC valhalla I did not have to do this I just upgraded from ps4 to ps5 started the game and the save was unusable with no messing around
@Loftimus Same. I was planning to play the PS Plus edition of FFVII Remake in the next month or so, but with no PS5 upgrade available (paid or otherwise), I think I’ll just wait for a deep sale, instead. Probably something close to the half-price mark or maybe £50 max. It may take a while, but I have more than enough to play in the meantime, that’s for sure!
@The_Pixel_King yeah, i've got two trophies left on the ps+ version so i'm in no rush to play through it again after those. Especially when i can buy Judgement and Devil may cry V ps5 upgrades together for the same price.
@Loftimus Oh, Devil May Cry 5. That’s another PS4 game I own (digitally) that I never got around to playing before I got my PS5. I’ve since deleted it from my hard drive. If I know that I can have a better experience with a native, new-gen upgrade of any game, I just can’t bring myself to play the older version.
I will have space but only after I have finished Ratchet and Clank first.
Imo it’s just total nonsense to not have the NVME port active and usable. The system has been out for 7 months now?
@BuGGy2DaB buy a remastered , remaster , of a remake of a 2 decade old game , or buy a brand new game ?
@vapidwolf Why use a UHD Bluray if you are using the same sizes of games where you still have to download the rest.
Oof. This game was already consuming too much of the SSD, and I was hoping the upgrade would fix that...
@Flaming_Kaiser Load times from disc media would defeat quick load of SSDs.
With the ps4 I went straight for a 3tb external HD and stored nothing on the internal HD except the system software.
When I can spot a ps5 in the wild I will do the same.
@ShogunRok Do we have confirmation yet for Yuffie DLC's file size, by itself?
@Flaming_Kaiser no idea ,ask Sony
@tselliot Playing a older game in the future will probably will be another issue especially if you see how easy corporate kill its off.
Yeah because a game installed of that big disc on your console wont work. Why the #### upgrade to a new medium if you wont use it.
So I've just tried to download the free upgrade to PS5 which has added to my library but I get an install error on the PS5. It says I don't have required disc space but I have 270 GB available and if the file size is only 85 GB....
Anyone any idea's , I tried rebooting the machine but it still won't install...
