Interesting. Digital only because 1.5+2.5 is 57GB which is more than a blu ray.

The question now is: why is it bigger than on ps4?

Do they include by default the 10GB DLC for theater mode? Or did they finally improve the video quality of the cutscenes in com, days and re:coded?

It could be that the 4k resolution caused the size to go up

It's more than likely that. I'm very sure that they don't show the file size for the Xbox One X enhancement patches added to them on the game pages (if you look at FFXIII, it just shows the Xbox 360 file size & on Xbox One X, that size is doubled to near the PS3 port's file size due to the X enhancements uncompressing the visuals). If you add up the file sizes of 1.5+2.5 & the DLCs on PS4, then factor in that Xbox One file sizes are, most of the time, a bit less than their PS4 counterparts' due to the better ways of compression on it, it adds up to that being the only explanation, since it's, literally, only several hundred megabytes less than the PS4 port, which is consistent with other games.

I'm pretty sure Osaka Team, or whoever they have porting these to Xbox, inserted those DLCs into the source codes of them for future ports, which would involve the Xbox One ports, pretty much like I'm sure any future ports of 3 will include the latest patches & Re:Mind on the discs. Only question, though. Will Theater Mode be available from the start in KH1FM, or will it unlock as you play through the game like KH2FM, BBSFM, DDD, 0.2, & III? It'd certainly make sense, but it'd be a bit unfair to Xbox players next to PS4 players who have the cutscenes unlocked with the DLC incorporated into it.

Alternate theory, though, for that. Maybe they'll have Theater Mode be DLC, but the files are already in the game's code & we can download a file to unlock it at the start, but who knows? I've never known a company to do that, so I don't know.

Also, for Re:COM, 358/2 Days, & Re:Coded's cutscenes, the Xbox One X is going to take care of those, since the console, by default, implements forced Temporal Anti-Aliasing. So, it'll be a better experience for those games alone.

Very interesting. I didn't know that. I am looking forward to see how this could improve the whole thing.
