The Final Fantasy director Hajime Tabata has corrected the mistake of Square Enix saying on their press release that Final Fantasy XV would require 170GB of HDD.

Tabata: “That was a mistake, actually. That was a communications mistake – something got put in a memo that really shouldn’t have. What that is [the specifications that went out to press] based on the specs that we’re running the demo on today. Again, the final specs for the release version haven’t been fixed yet. There’s a very good chance they can change. Someone put that in there and it got reported as the recommended specs, but that’s not the final fixed version. The fact that it became that number is a communication error”.

The demo systems that Square Enix were using to show of the game were using NVIDIA’s GTX 1080Ti and were hitting that amazing 4K resolution but Tabata also had a comment on this: “at least as far as the same level as the console edition, maybe looking to going even further than that in future”.
