[joystiq] Titanfall PC's 48GB install the result of uncompressed audio - Page 9

post #81 of 152
So basically just the audio files take up more space than all of World Of Warcraft + Expansions, or all of Battlefield 3 + DLCs (vastly newer engine/graphics, 28 maps, 70+ guns/vehicles).

Wat doh.gif

Lossless audio is easily worth it though.... It's a massive massive difference on higher end equipment. Though, I feel lossless audio should be optional for people using lower end equipment.

But yes, Lossless audio is rather big... but when people spend thousands of dollars on audio equipment the size is easily justifiable.

i'd say that is just for the sake of getting media attention and publicity and an excuse for their laziness of lack of maps etcs

and how many people with this higher end equipment and ears that can hear the difference or care about it or actually bother to listening properly to the audio track when they are busy fragging?

majority of the gamers running on their realtek sound chips and $30 logicrap speakers or skullcandy headphones wouldnt even tell the difference

There's 15 maps...and most of them are absolutely brilliant in structure...what's the problem?

It's more about if you have the equipment to utilize it not if your ears can hear the difference. On ~$1000+ speakers, the difference is like apples and oranges. I am able blind test lossy vs lossless with 100% accuracy on blu-rays and it's not even a challenge, and I actually consider my hearing to be pretty bad. Lots of concerts have done their damage.

I do agree it should be optional though, install the game and optionally install the lossless audio pack or something. Much like Skyrim did with high resolution textures. Forcing it on people seems unnecessary.

You can easily tell this forum went down the drain. All you see is "COD clone" everywhere but yet they state all the differences themselves. It's like do the idiots even know what they're saying b4 they say it?

It's less about being correct and more about desperately wanting to win an internet fight I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I don't have $1000+ speakers, but with a Xonar STX + HD558 (SP2500 speakers) it's literally impossible to differentiate between lossless FLAC and 320kbps MP3 (LAME encoded). I'd say I have decent hearing tongue.gif

Other people have done blind tests with higher-end equipment like Asus Essence One + HD650's, still can't tell the difference. Only in studio setups the difference starts becoming noticeable I think.

Adding to it, I haven't heard any player reviews squealing about Titanfall's sound quality compared to say...BF4, the one game known for mind-blowing audio immersion (doesn't have ridiculous audio file sizes). Nobody has mentioned audio quality and I've been watching tons of player reviews.

Anyway Respawn said that they primarily did this to reduce CPU overhead on junk-level computers, not audio quality purposes.
