    What the hell, Halo 5 takes up 98GB of diskspace, this is ridiculous. I wonder how long it will take to load. I think this trend of bigger games is a bad one. Just look at the Nintendo Switch Lite, I'm not exactly sure how big games are, but they load very quickly from the SD card and graphics are great.

    It should load quickly, despite the size. I don't have an issue with the large size of games, as it allows for better graphics and it's not as if storage space is limited these days.

    I recently got a PS4. Forza Hozion 4 was a 63GB download and takes up 75GB of disk space. Doom (the new 2016 version), which I have on disc needed to download a 62GB update, before I could play it. My PS4 has a 1TB hard drive, so the large storage usage of the games doesn't bother me.

    OK cool, if loading of games remains fast I guess it's not a problem. Except for the fact that it will probably take a while to install and download games. I've looked it up, on the Nintendo Switch, a game like FIFA 18 is only 14GB big. And you can play it on TV and on the portable device. Plus games don't need to be installed. Weird that PS5 and Xbox don't offer this.

    The Switch only has 720p resolution and comes with just 32GB of storage space. While you can expand the storage space on the Switch with a Micro SD card, my Xbox One came with a 1TB hard drive.

    I have just read that games will load very fast on the PS5, thanks to a super fast SSD, so that sounds good to me. But I didn't realize that the Switch worked differently, it's old skool. I remember back in the days, you also didn't have to install games on the Sega Mega Drive, but PlayStation and Xbox work more like PC's.
