Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls to take up 20% of PlayStation 5 storage

Installing Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition and the Demon’s Souls remake, two highly anticipated launch titles for the PlayStation 5, will take up about 20% of the console’s hard drive.

The PlayStation 5 will come with an 825GB custom SSD for storage, but according to the PlayStation Direct website, players may have to consider using the console’s expandable storage feature sooner than expected.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition, which also includes the remastered edition of 2018’s Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, will take up a minimum of 105GB, according to its listing on the website. The Demon’s Souls remake, meanwhile, is at least 66GB.

With a total of 171GB, these two launch games will already use up 20.7% of the PlayStation 5’s 825GB SSD. This may have been expected though, as developers continue to push the boundaries with next-generation games.

In comparison, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice only takes up 12.5GB, while Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition uses only 48.2GB. However, there are PlayStation 4 games that use up even more space, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with its controversial 200GB install size across all platforms.

While the two launch games are not indicative of how much space all other PlayStation 5 games will take up on the console’s hard drive, it should give players an idea of the number of games they can have installed on the console at a time if they do not shell out for additional storage.

The PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will cost $499 and $399, respectively, with a November 12 launch date. Pre-orders for the console, however, have been a mess.

How long is Spider-Man 2?
Red and black Spider-Man in the dark.

Sony's first-party titles are known for their cinematic and often lengthy experiences that value storytelling and atmosphere just as much as solid, enjoyable gameplay. That hasn't changed for Spider-Man 2, which features the return of both Peter Parker and Miles Morales as they tackle multiple new threats in New York – some that may even be coming from within. This thrilling new web-slinging adventure should have plenty to offer both casual players and completionists, but how long will it take to beat? We won't know for sure until the game launches, but recent leaks and rumors have teased what players can expect. Here's how much time you should budget for Spider-Man 2 based on current rumors.
How long is Spider-Man 2?

A playthrough of Spider-Man 2 should take players an average of 17 hours according to some estimations and leaks — which includes the main campaign and dabbling in rounding up collectibles and doing other side content. The game will also feature an expansive trophy list like its predecessor that should be a joy if you're a completionist, and it will likely take you around 25 to 30 hours to finish if leaks are to be believed. This will likely require you to 100% complete all districts, which will include finishing any and all side-quests as well as open-world activities. You'll also likely need to purchase all of Spider-Man's suit tech upgrades and gadget upgrades, as well as reach max level.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Miles Morales and Peter Parker stand together in Spider-Man 2.

Spider-Man is one of the most recognizable superheroes in the world. His popularity in media is hard to overstate, as he is the focus of ongoing films, comics, multiple animated series, and, of course, video games. The web-slinger has been on home consoles ever since the Atari days, and each new generation has given us better and better games. The most recent game, Marvel's Spider-Man, which paired the comic book hero with the perfect developer (Insomniac Games) to handle this acrobatic, sarcastic neighborhood hero, was a smash-hit in every respect. Critics praised it, fans loved it, and it sold like crazy. Plus, it probably was a major contributing factor in Sony's outright purchase of the studio. Naturally, we all knew a sequel had to be coming.

When the PlayStation 5 launched, we got a standalone expansion of sorts in Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which let us play as the new spider on the block in his own story. Now the focus has been set on the proper, full sequel, which looks to take everything from the original game and the expansion and combine it all into a truly amazing new Spider-Man (Spider-Men?) title. We've only had a handful of looks at the game, but we've used our spider senses to untangle all the information there is about Marvel's Spider-Man 2.
