Same Game, Different Size Across Platform


Recommended Posts


I came across quite a lot of same game but vastly different size across different platform.


  • Ikaruga (Naomi) 11MB
  • Ikaruga (Dreamcast) 58MB
  • Ikaruga (Gamecube) 1.3GB

I understand like CDI and GDI, the latter is to preserve the original from downsizing thus GDI files is always mostly bigger then CDI, but for the example above, the difference seems to be too great? After playing the game in the different emulators I can't tell the difference maybe just the Gamecube version is slightly louder, that's about it. The graphics mostly looked the same at a Full HD screen(Gamecube version tweaking to X3 native). I don't know is it my eyes or there's really no big difference. If so, I would then get the smaller file size in order to preserve space.
