Clean Those Hard Drives! Mandatory Destiny Update Weighs in At 10-18GB

Gaming / PlayStation / Xbox

With Destiny’s “The Taken King” DLC just around the corner, Bungie has released updated system requirements for Destiny on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One – and it isn’t pretty. Last-gen consoles get off relatively easy, but the current-gen PS4 and Xbox One will be getting hit pretty hard on the storage requirement side.

The Destiny update coming September 8 is a REQUIRED update, regardless of if you are picking up “The Taken King” DLC or not, so if you want to continue playing the game you have no choice but to update, which Bungie says will enhance the experience for all players.

The Xbox 360 requires around 10GB free space for the required update, and the PlayStation 3 “closer to 20GB” during installation and about 10GB free for the required update after installation. Bungie kindly goes on to mention that in order to be able to continue playing, those playing on a 20GB PS3 or Xbox 360 with limited storage space will want to upgrade their storage capacity or better yet upgrade to an Xbox One or PS4. Those that do choose to upgrade their consoles will be able to transfer all their characters, gear, and progress if they upgrade from PS3 to PS4 or Xbox 360 to Xbox One.

The current-gen version of the update will weigh in at 18GB for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Bungie recommends that users of these consoles turn on the automatic downloading feature of their consoles in order to be ready to play as soon as possible.

After the update has been applied, a minimum of 30GB disk space will be occupied by Destiny on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, while 60GB will be required on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 – a rather large chunk of the available space after you take the console operating system space requirements into account. Time to check out those additional storage options like the 2TB Seagate Game Drive for Xbox if you haven’t already…
