For this games graphics the system requirements seem very low. I pulled these off the steam store page and if these are accurate this game is nicely optimizied and really excited to see how it does on the gaming website reviews. Fingers crossed that this is gonna be awesome.

I fear they are estimated requirements.
14 GBs for a racing game that doesn't have hefty amounts of voice, videos, etc,seems quite big.

It may require that space free for performance issues, I could be wrong, so don't take my word for it.

I'm glad to see that all my systems will be able to play it, two out of the 3 probs maxed out . http://steamcommunity.com/id/carsonuk

Using that steam url link, it says the install for Blur is 7900mb
I somehow find it a bit dubious that it's 14gb.

I usually assume racing games relatively hardware friendly, because they often have less space to put detail in. That usually makes racing games beautiful and still hardware friendly.

Steam downloads are compressed, it may very well end up extracting to 14gb.

The steam download is usually smaller than the 'disk space needed' prompt isn't it?
Also , the MW2 box says it needs at least 16gb of free space when in reality the full game takes up about 10 I believe?

MW2 size is around ~11gb, and size on disc (for me) is 11.5gb.

The 7.9gb you see is what you will have to download if you choose to buy it from steam. I do know some games favour HDD's with abit of free space on them .

It will probably NOT be 14 gigs. Thats just an number they recommend. The game should be around 9 gigs.
