If you’re planning on getting an Xbox One in just over a week, then you may want to know how much of that built-in 500GB hard drive will be taken up when downloading some of the brand new launch titles. Well here’s some good news, if you’re planning on getting Zoo Tycoon, you won’t have to worry too much about eating up space too quickly, but if you’re looking more at NBA 2K14 be prepared to fear that your ever expanding game collection is going to fill up the hard drive pretty quickly.

Thanks to an accidental early delivery of an Xbox One console to Moonlightswami, we’ve managed to get a whole list of all the download sizes of the Xbox One’s launch titles, and believe it or not if you want every single one you’re going to eat up a whole 341GB.

As game installation is mandatory on the Xbox One, we’re beginning to see a rather large issue and we hope that Microsoft adds external hard drive support asap. Of course not all games are going to be the massive 43GB of NBA 2K14, with Battlefield 4 coming in at 33GB and FIFA 14 being just a tiny 8GB.

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag – 20GB

Battlefield 4 – 33GB

Call of Duty: Ghosts – 39GB

Dead Rising 3 – 19GB

FIFA 14 – 8GB

Fighter Within – 9.2GB

Forza Motorsport 5 – 31GB

Just Dance 2014 – 22GB

Killer Instinct – 3.4GB

Lococycle – 13GB

Madden NFL 25 – 12GB

NBA 2K14 – 43GB

NBA Live 14 – 9GB

Powerstar Golf – 3.9GB

Ryse: Son of Rome – 34GB

Skylanders: Swap Force – 15GB

Xbox Fitness – 246MB

Zoo Tycoon – 2.6GB

Zumba World Party – 24GB

If there’s one silver lining, you’re not required to install the full game before it becomes playable — with reports of around 50% completion before you can launch a game and have the install continue in the background.
