Ever Wondered How Many GB You’d Need to Install Every Xbox One Game?

Here’s an interesting question; how many external hard drives you would need to have instant access to every Xbox One game available? We have that and other interesting data inside…

You have to install every game you want to play on an Xbox One, even if you have the disc. It’s quite the problem for anybody with a substantial games library, with some of the biggest blockbusters weighing in at over 40GB each – and that’s before patches and DLC. The recently released Halo 5: Guardians, for example, is a 46GB install, followed by a 9GB day-one patch – ouch! With the internal hard drive offering just under 400GB of available space, most gamers will be seeking an external storage solution faster than you can say “Xbox Stop Listening.”

In order to help people better navigate their storage solutions, we’ve painstakingly put together a list of every available game on the Xbox Store right now and how many gigabytes are required to install them for play. It’s quite the resource, and you can check out the full list here.

With the list assembled, we wondered – if you wanted to install every single game, how much space would you need – and for good measure, we did the same for its current-gen brethren, the PS4. So we crunched the data and here were some of our interesting key findings: please note that these are raw install sizes, not including any patches or DLC. As such, this data DOES NOT assume you have your console connected to the internet or, if you do, that you download DLC.
