MGSV: The Phantom Pain is a whole new kind of Metal Gear Solid game. This time, Snake is free in the open world. Most open world games on PS4 and Xbox One have been around 40-60GB, taking up around 10% of the HDD space on the new consoles. Now the numbers are out for the Kojima Konami game and they might not be what you were expecting.

The game was made available for pre-order on PS4 and PS3 via the Japanese PlayStation Store, revealing to DualShockers the game’s download sizes. The PS4 version will chew up 25.1 GB of your bandwidth with the PS3 version only requiring 11.7GB. That seems a bit small to me. I know, it’s not the size that counts but how you use it; I’m just wondering how the game will use only that much space to deliver a big open world. Maybe the world won’t be as massive or as open as we thought, or maybe Kojima is even more of a magician than we realized.

There’s also a new poster that Hideo Kojima shared that shows an extremely bloody Snake and Quiet.

It’s a bit disconcerting how much blood she has on her cleavage, but it almost looks like she’s wearing a shirt now, so maybe that’s a good thing? I’m not so sure, but the poster looks pretty cool, and graphic, and creepy. Now if only we could get this printed on a stealthy cardboard box to hide in, it would be a true representation of the game.
