As we've transitioned over to dedicated SSD storage with next-gen consoles, space on those drives has become prime real estate. These things are not cheap, especially when it comes to expanding the base storage with external cards! Sadly, some next-gen games don't really take this into account - with NBA 2K23 being the latest humongous Xbox Series X title.
As spotted by folks over on Reddit (the game is now installable ahead of release), NBA 2K23 on Xbox Series X clocks in at just north of 150GB. That's a biggie!
We've seen some huge game sizes this generation so far, but it's not often things tip over that 150gb mark - especially in this genre! If you're picking this one up, it's probably a good idea to make room for its arrival.
We haven't spotted the game's Xbox Series S install size just yet, but if it's anywhere near the Series X size, it'll take up almost half of the system's usable internal drive space!
What do you make of this? Would it put you off picking the game up? Let us know in the comments.
