GTA V Mandatory and Optional install details....it's a big one!

Post by Killswitchmad on Wed 10 Jul 2013 - 16:39

Rockstar have today confirmed the installation plans for GTA V on the 360 and it's a large one....

GTA V's Disc 1 contains mandatory install data of 7gb's (this is the smallest install size)

Players can then choose to also install all 8Gb's of disc to for (according to Rockstar) improved performance, that's a total of 15Gb's for a full installation.

Good luck if you have a 20Gb HDD as DLC is no doubt going to be sizeable too....

I have 30Gb spare, so not a problem for me there, although seeing as I'm not getting the game it won't be an issue anyway. Razz 

But on a serious note, it does seem rather excessive, at this stage in the consoles life there will be plenty of people who might have trouble finding all that space.

^ ^ This. Also, I guess that the 360 can read more quickly from the hard drive over DVD and with the amount the system needs to 'draw' will benefit from the extra speed.

Anyone seen any good pre-order bonus's for this?

I would recommend getting it from Simply Games as they send it out really early. If you remember I had Black Ops 2 on the Saturday before.

This is usually the case when you buy from shop to - but I suspect that this might suffer from rockstar making sure it doesnt happen. Im sure they did something like that last time

Simply Games get away with it because they buy all there stock from Holland which means they use a loophole within the system that allows them to dispatch alot earlier than suppliers with UK stock

They ship them early so everyone will get it by release day, but Blops 2 was released on tuesday, so activision were worried that people would be getting it on Saturday which is considerably earlier.

You can see why the Online shops want to send it earlier. They are trying to compete in the online market to get gamers to buy from them. If they ship out the day before release they are then relying on Royal Mail to deliver then following day. I think the stats are something like 80% of 1st Class Deliverys get there the next day so people are going to be let down. Gamers will automatically blame the online shop not Royal Mail

If you believe Royal Mail then it's somewhere between 90-95%.

I would be careful about this. My missus got stung when she bought me copy of F1 2011, it wasn't from Simply Games, but I didn't find out until I went to trade it in that it was EU game that was 'Not for sale in the UK' - it does state this on the game box, just above the bar code - I never noticed it until the trade in was refused.

I wasn't able to trade the game in. I'm sure I read somewhere that it was basically against the law for that copy of the game to be sold in the UK.

I had more or less the same thing happen. Ordered Guitar Hero Metallica from Amazon when it came out and it wasn't until this year,when I tried to trade it at CEX, that I found out it is the US version. Maybe get round to playing it one day.

Ye, still have one of the old console, so it's a real pain. Especially when BF3 takes up nearly 15Gb, will all DLC and multiplayer updates. Basically only keep file saves of games that I still own/play regularly.Crying or Very sad

* Oh ye plus I use a configured 8Gb memory stick.
