I know at least one of you already has the game, perhaps more. Anyone care to confirm what the install size is? Screenshot proof is always delicious.

yessss...I'm also eager to see screenshots of the config utility. And to find out if it attempts to patch before requesting login info and key, like the beta did!

A friend told me the official word was 22GB, no idea where he read it though.

While probably only a handful of people have the game right now, I remember quite a few people saying that the installation was going to be 16GB and a download of 6GB for a total of 22GB.

According to the official site (here), it will be 15GB on install and 6GB in downloads. Whether or not that has changed is unknown.

I am pretty sure that the 16GB + 6GB has been misunderstood.

This was indicated by SE as the system requirements. SE has never said that the first patch will be 6GB. In fact, I would be very surprised if it is anywhere near that size given that the entire beta was not much bigger than 6GB.

The requirement has been articulated this way as when you download, the files are stored as torrents prior to being installed. My interpretation of the 16+6 is that the install will by 16gb but you will need to have additional space on your HDD for 6GB of download temporarily as somewhere to store the torrents. NOT that there will be a 6GB torrent right now but future updates might be so you need space to do them.

The last thing SE wants is to say that the game requires 16GB only to later have people complain that they cant fit the subsequent patches on their HDD.

This guy is reporting a 9GB client. (http://www.ffxivcore.com/topic/18676-pics-of-delivered-ce-client-information/). Then there should be a download patch when the servers come up Tuesday night (pacific time). Would expect the patch to be about 6GB according to system requirements.

That's why I'm making this topic. Everyone been saying 22GB as accordance with that supposed tech support email. Then there's that topic claiming 9GB. Was hoping for more people to confirm.

6GB seems like an awfully large patch for release day.

It's hard to say exactly what SE is doing. But game requirements say storage of 15GB plus 6GB download. So maybe the 9GB is the core game and the first patch adds 6GB which brings us to the 15GB. All future patches then would be 6GB or less (to keep within system reqs).

The 6GB is probably uncompressed size but it will still take some hours to download a 3GB+ patch with the SE downloader so hope to get started as soon as possible.

Seems like a good time to ask again, considering I've seen a few more topics pop up now.

Confirmed by people who have installed and patched.

15gb on the disk, and 420mb patch.

At least the patch is not too big - I still reckon it is going to take a couple of hours with the terrible updater.

Hallie! Another Sydney player.. noice ;)

The patch took for me in total just under 5 minutes, averaging around 220kb/s. It was mighty impressive this time around! I also had maxed out remote and local connections (40/20 respectively).

Awesome, thanks Asta. I will be driving down to EB tomorrow morning for 9am to grab a copy. Installed, patched and ready to play by 11am server up!
