This is actually not a big surprise, as we already know this. Star Wars Jedi Survivor weighs around 147GB. Ordinary Ultra HD Blu-ray discs can hold around 100GB of data, so it’s impossible to keep your entire game on the disc. Another solution would be to add more disks, but of course this is an additional cost for the EA. However, we don’t know if the disc contains only part of the data, or if Electronic Arts decided to only include the proof of purchase to launch the game and then download the full 147GB of the game from PlayStation. PlayStation stores, Xboxes.

For those with a metered connection, the problem will likely be more serious (for example, it’s still common in various parts of the US).
