Prepare Your PS3’s Hard Drive for Resident Evil HD, Download Sizes Revealed

September 18, 2011 Written by Jonathan Leack

Two of arguably the most successful titles in Resident Evil history will be re-released in high definition by the time September comes to a close. These releases by Capcom have a shot at becoming the most popular downloadable titles of our generation, but since they’re digital-only, space can become a hindrance. Thankfully, we have the official space requirements available so you can make space for these two extremely well-received survival horror titles.

Resident Evil 4 HD will be releasing this coming Tuesday, and will take up a total of 3.3 GB of space, which sounds about right given the game’s DVD heritage. On the other hand, Code Veronica X HD clocks in at 2.4 GB, a considerably smaller size for a game that came out half a decade before Resident Evil 4.

Resident Evil will become the highlight of the PlayStation Store in the coming two weeks, so look out for its re-releases, and clear up 5.7 GB of space if you want to experience both in HD for their first time.
