    Yep I need a better PC. 35GB of HD space, shit, I need more space asap.

    I do HAVE that amount of space, but it’s still kind of nuts. 35GB, jesus.

    lol and it isn’t even an MMO, i would’ve expected this size on a huge MMO but a singleplayer game, no way.

    I got the specs, built a new PC recently (but kept my old 6850 GPU since I didn’t intend to play GPU intensive games.) Now seeing 35GB HDD space.. that will bring me from 53GB space used to 83GB space used of this little 120GB SSD. Plus 20% has to be shaved off to prolong SSD life, so thats 83GB of 96GB taken.

    Kind of scarey how much they want used up. I may reconsider pre-purchasing and wait for a review.
