For those hoping to shoot some hoops on the next-gen version of NBA 2K21, you may want to be sure you have enough space as it has been confirmed that the PS5 version will require a minimum of 150GB!
Amazon has shipped early copies of NBA 2K21 for the PS5, which an image was shared by Robo3687 over on reddit of the backside of the case.
As you can see from the requirements, the PS5 version will need a minimum of 150GB in order to be installed. For comparison the PS4 version currently weighs in around 42 to 50GB, meaning the PS4 version is 3 times the size. Though it’s important to note that this listed number on box cases has always somewhat been misleading in the past, at least for PS4 games as they are generally larger than the actually file size.
This may be the case, as the Xbox Series X version is reasonably smaller, clocking in at just 72GB for our download.
Of course we’ll know the true size of the PS5 version here real soon as the title will become available to download the same day as the PS5 launch, which is November 12. We’ll be sure to update this post if the size differs, but for now just be prepared for the game to take up a large chunk of your SSD.
