i agree considering you only need a dvd drive, must be some insanely compressed data on that dvd.......Why so much Hard drive space? Is 65GB even a reasonable amount of space, not that it would be a factor in me buying this game, but dang that seems high.
65GB may be normal for such a graphic intensive game! Just look at it this way, more GB means more graphical and audio awesomeness!
They also may need some of the space for uncompressed data to reduce load on a processor (whether CPU or GPU).
6TB drive is only $260, cheaper in the future, who cares, though efficiency should always be a priority.
Wait, I'd have this on an SSD for sure, so yeah 65GB is something to think about.
