I’ve had Real Racing 3 installed on my iPad mini for a little over 24 hours now. And it is taking up 1.8GB of storage space already!
The download size of the app is listed as 716MB – so that looks to me like the app has nearly tripled its use of storage space since I installed it yesterday. The worrying thing here is that it’s not like I’ve played through a whole lot of the game yet. I have bought exactly one car – just the first one, the only one you can afford when starting out with the game. I have made a couple engine upgrades and a few tire and brakes upgrades, nothing more. And I have only competed in about a dozen race events, out of a total of over 950 in the game.
Maybe the game will ‘level off’ in some way in terms of its storage use from here forward – but that seems unlikely. I would think that as I advance, make more upgrades, buy more cars, run more races, it’s just going to amass more data that will increase its use of storage space.
I’ll monitor this pretty closely in coming days as I use the game more – because pretty soon I’m going to need a bigger
boat iPad mini. I’d hate to think that I have to break out the iPad 3 in order to enjoy this game (my iPad 3 has 64GB, my iPad mini just has 32GB).
Have any of you played through a lot more than me on Real Racing 3 yet? If so, how much storage space is the game using up on your iPad?
