We knew Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection would be huge in terms of file size due to including three games that were graphically the best on consoles during their respective releases. Packaging all three Uncharted games on a single PS4 disc certainly would’ve been a challenge now that they run at a glorious 1080p.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection’s file size comes in at 44GB making it one of the biggest installs on the Playstation 4. The file size is fairly unexpected because the originals themselves were fairly big games on the PS3, Uncharted 3 for example was around 40GB. Naughty Dog most likely took their time to compress and optimize the games leading to the reduced small size. The collection also doesn’t include multiplayer, so that’s cutting some GBs there as well.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection releases exclusively for the Playstation 4 on October 7. The collection includes the first three Uncharted games and access to the Uncharted 4 Multiplayer Beta. A demo of the collection also went up yesterday, so feel free to check it out before you buy.
