Forza Horizon 2

Found 10 posts - Go to Last Post


Forza Horizon 2 has popped up on Xbox Live Marketplace along with the installation size for the game.

I wonder how many people are already low on HD space? I dont remember what the One lets us do, can we use an external drive? does it have limits on size like the 360 did?

I use the 4TB USB3.0 Western DIgital HDD: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/wd-my-book-4tb-external-usb-3-0-hard-drive-black/1766068.p?id=1219063238074&skuId=1766068&st=catego ryid$pcmcat186100050005&cp=1&lp=1

It goes on sale all the time, expect to pay about $150. I went from 95% full to 7% full. There are some games that load EVERYTHING (like WATCH_DOGS) at the very start that might have a slightly longer load time, but in actual gameplan, I have not noticed any issues.

The OS Updates have been addressing side issues, your HDD is always on, and people want it off to save power, but, now that the option is there for that, when your machine powers down, so does that HDD, so, your games don't update automatically for you (screw that, you can use $1/month of power if I don't have to wait for a download/update), and currently you choose a default load location (internal or external, of which you can have two) - personally, I want Games on the External HDD, but Apps on the console. If I take my HDD with me to a friend's house, I bring my games, but, my kid can still watch Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, etc without having to download the app again.

So, I give using the external drive a 9/10 because it is mostly a flawless experience with a couple of hiccups (that are being addressed).

Just unnecessary.
Has anyone seen/heard of anyone successfully using a usb 3.0 raid enclosure? Something like this one - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

That would allow me to put in 16TB and not worry about storage for years.
