Uncharted 3 game data size

5 replies 1031 views Edited Feb 6, 2013

I was talking to a friend when we found out that the sizes of our Uncharted 3 files are not the same size.

In the game data folder there are 3 files for Uncharted 3. I'll list them here with their size:

 

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - Mine: 572MB - His: 788MB

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception 1.15 - Mine: 803 MB - His: 343MB

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - Additional content - Mine 1975MB - His 1975 MB

 

Can anyone think of a reason why they aren't the same? And can anyone post the sizes of their files?

 

We both bought it in Europe, both BCES 01175 as code.

 

The additional content file is the DLC and can be different according to how much DLC you have. I have all mappacks and all skin packs. He also had them all with the exception of 2 skin packs.

 

The gamedata can be different according to the size of your cinema files. But I'm clueless about why my patch data is so much bigger.

Game Data also saves captured (videos) cinema files.

No, that's not what you said. You were talking about cinema files, while I was talking about actual videos (MPEG data). It uses Game Data as a cache before exporting them to the XMB.

Try this one:

Delete the first file (Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - Mine: 572MB - His: 788MB), play some customs and then try to capture cinema files with the in-game recorder (not an external PVR). Your Game Data will increase and you can't reclaim that space back.

Also, regarding this file:

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception 1.15 - Mine: 803 MB - His: 343MB

Your friend has deleted the Title Updates and redownloaded them. If you do that, you only download the last 3 TUs (1.13, 1.14, 1.15). TU 1.13 is a cumulative patch (it includes 1.01 - 1.12 as well).

If you want to save some space (~500MB), you can do the same thing. Smiley Happy

Oh cool, might try it myself too. I'm running out of space all the time.

Not like 500MB helps much, but it's still something. Smiley Tongue
