One of the comments said,” Ps5 requires 89 GB. I’m Guessing that 25 GB difference is for 4k textures and PS timed exclusive content they get. Xbox 61GB does not need a 4k texture patch and won’t get any content for a while. Thankfully GB size it better than the cold war 250GB required.” Another comment said,” I think the PS5 version has extra content.”

Whereas some players are also questioning the PS5’s Kraken decompression technology. For those who don’t know, the Kraken decoder acts as an effective speed multiplier for data loading. Furthermore, data is stored compressed on the SSD and decoded transparently at load time on PS5.
