    Feel like the difficulty flew threw the roof with the Marrakesh mission in Hitman.

    Still loving it, but damn it is not easy.

    I'm going to go through RE7 before I hit 8.

    Man, I have way too many games in my to-play pile.

    I'll be streaming it on every Monday until I beat it.

    I played half of the demo but stopped because of spoilers. It's gorgeous.

    Not to dig up old conversation, but I'm still so not down with the blatant false advertising of hard drive sizes on consoles (is this a PC problem as well?).

    Only a little over 2/3 of the PS5's already minimal 1TB drive is usable space.

    The very, very least they could do is, on the packaging, write "647gb usable space" underneath the text that says it is 1TB.

    I'm with Alex Navarro and Jeff Gerstmann of GiantBomb (Alex formerly as of tomorrow...*cries*).

    Well. Firstly, even as strictly a storage drive, you're not getting 1 TB of free space out of the gate. You're probably getting somewhere around 950GB. And the OS has to live somewhere right? So you add that in and you end up getting whatever it is you got.

    Here's a shot of my 1TB M.2 and Only Windows 10 installed.

    I get that but they should be advertising the usable space of the hard drive.

    I think they should be advertising 650gb.

    So they should guess how much the space every OS is going to take up and put that on the box?

    I'm talking about the PS5.

    I highly doubt it varies from one to another how much space the OS takes up.

    I thought you were talking about the hard drive manufactures. Since those are the companies that advertise 1TB, 500GB etc etc.

    I see where you're coming from meg, but in the end it's a little like complaining your furnished apt doesn't have exactly 900 sq ft available for ballroom dancing. Like tables and chairs, the PS5 OS is a feature.

    Sorry, no.

    I'm talking about the box that the PS5 comes in, and the advertisements for it (and other consoles, which from what I can see all have the same issue).

    The PS5 box says in huge letters 1 TB HARDDRIVE!! There is not even close to 1 TB of usable space, so I think it is pretty blatant false advertising.

    To use your potato chip bag comparison from the last time we talked about this...

    This is like saying a bag of Lay's is 600g because that's how much the bag is able to hold when filled. But there's actually 245g of chips in the bag.

    Lay's can't do that, because it is false advertising and illegal.

    The difference is you're not buying the Lays bag as a bag. You're buying what's inside.

    Hard drives are empty containers. They are sold and marketed like empty containers, sorta the way other empty containers are sold and marketed: trash bags, drinking glasses, luggage, cardboard boxes, etc.

    When you go to the grocery store and see 10 gallon Hefty bags for sale, you don't think, "What bullshit! it's not 10 gallons after I stuff it with garbage!"

    As for the PS5 retail box ... it doesn't seem to have "1TB!!!!!" in big letters anywhere.

    Here's a gallery: https://www.ign.com/articles/check-o...n-5-retail-box

    If you click through to photo 12, you'll see the back ...

    ... which clearly says "825GB."
