NBA 2K14 requires 50GB+ hard drive space on PS4/Xbox One if downloaded

Xbox One and PS4 buyers will need to be ready for some long download times. Amazon has confirmed that one launch title, NBA 2K14, will require over 50GB of hard drive space if downloaded on either system.

On PS4 the game requires 50GB of hard drive space. On Xbox One it will require 60GB of hard drive space.

Yikes! That’s a lot of space taken up by a sports game! The discs for both consoles go up to 50GB so this isn’t entirely unexpected but it is still a bit shocking. You could probably fit around 9 digital copies of NBA 2K14 on both systems.

If sports games are already taking up that much space how much more will large scale RPGs or adventure games?
