Was just looking through my save data on ps4. And while most saved data varies from 2 mb to 10 mb, the saved data from this game is at 500mb.

Wtf???? Shouldn't our profile data be saved to a cloud or something?

Does that mean if our ps4's break down and we get a new one we have to start from level 1 all over again?

Saved data alone is 500MB reserved space?

I'll have to double check this when I get home. That's fucking insane.

Yeah I was looking for something to delete because I didn't have enough space for the ffxv update and I didn't want to delete any applications. 

Everything else was mostly 2mb, highest was 10mb. 

But this game is half of 1gb in save data alone.

 I'm pretty sure our levels and stuff are saved on the backend.

If not, we could easily have a lost progress bug all over again like in DbD

What's the 500mb save data for then and what happens if we delete it?

I accidentally deleted entire game and had to re-download and all my data was still there when I logged in.

They probably don't know what compression is, seeing as their barely updates are like a whole gig and shit.

They said during the original level 0 glitch that our levels and progress were saved on the backend servers, but who honestly knows. Make a secondary account, get it up a level or 2, and then delete it and let us know what happens.

Does that included screenshots and videos as well?

No, those are saved separately in the Capture Gallery.

Maybe they are using it as a replacement for the lacking RAM on consoles :lol:

On PC, the folder, where it's saving it's stuff, like configs, savefiles etc... is 16Mb.

I want to know exactly what the 500mb save data is, if it's unnecessary then I can delete it.

You should really learn more about the PS4 and PSN. If you delete a game the save data will remain on the HDD (videos & screenshots too). If you have a PS Plus subscription every save data file will be automatically uploaded to the cloud which has a size of 10 GB unless you changed that setting (which can be done for each game individually). On top of that you can always copy save files to a USB stick. There's also a built-in backup & restore feature in case you switch the console. You're welcome. RTFM.

I already knew all that. I was referring to consoles unexpectedly breaking down and yes I forgot about the ps plus cloud storage.

I rarely use cloud storage.

Haven't checked my final fantasy 15 but it's understandable for a massive open world game with intense graphics like that to be 600+ mb.

No idea why f13 has mb as high as 500+ mb

If our profile data is saved to the backend then it's safe to delete that?

Can you test it out?

Even if u delete it next time u play it will just save again anyway and that 500mb will be back on there. Or are u not playing the game anymore and want some space for other games?

I don't play every day, I do about 4 or 5 games every few days or so.

Tbh though i haven't played in a week or so because of this crazy flu I have.

But yeah I'm not gonna delete the game until I'm bored of it.

And I'm sure if the 500mb is irrelevant they can patch it or compress it.
