Tony Hawk 5’s day-one patch is bigger than the game itself

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is out today for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America. The game’s download size (on the new platforms, at least) checks in at 4.6GB.

Small, right?

Well, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 also offers a day-one patch. That’s pretty standard stuff for games released today. The patch, however, stands at 7.7GB in size. That’s nearly double the size of the original game itself.

What’s covered in the patch? We’re not sure. The news of its size is coming from folks who purchased the game already. Quite frankly, we didn’t receive review codes for this game. Without them, we’re a little nervous about buying the game. If there’s demand out there for a review from us, we’ll do it; but, man, this patch size is not promising.

We’ll see. I’ve heard some pretty negative stuff about Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, though I haven’t played it myself. Have any of you folks taken this for a spin yet? How’s it doing?
