I hope it does, that way gta v won't be held back by rockstar thinking about the 360 players, that way we all win :)

DoomeDx2217d ago

Exacly what i was thinking.

If they stick to 1 DVD because of the xbox360, you know that are holding things back.

Bathyj2217d ago

Jon's right.
Claud's wrong.

Or they could take advantago of bluray and fit it onto 360 any way they can.

All developers have the option to make a game look better on a console if they decide to. They just decide not to because they dont feel its worth it.

What about Jean Claud? is he right or wrong?

Buys 32GB flash drive for less than 15 quid.

Installs 3 discs on it with room left to spare on xbox 360.

Yawns, finds next article on N4G.

Possible? More like common sense. The game is being developed with PS3 as the lead platform in order to avoid the DVD restrictions. I'm sure disc size is the last thing on their mind at the moment.

That's what she said ^

lol but anyway, the number of discs shouldn't matter, as most people are likely installing the game. Microsoft disabled people from using their own memory so I don't know how much Msoft flash drives and hard drives run for these days, but I'm sure you if look around on ebay or something you should find something decently priced.

may require? Rockstar are genius engineers but not miracle workers. Of course it'll come multi-disc on the 360

OneAboveAll2217d ago

meh, i install all my 360 games anyways. Not a big deal.

StrongMan2217d ago (Edited 2217d ago )

If GTA5 is bigger than Vice City, San Andrea, and GTA4 combined like reported then there is no way GTA5 will squeeze onto just two DVDs, especially with graphics that good. I'm guessing 3 DVDs at least.

MasterCornholio2217d ago

As long as you dont need to change them every time you go to a new area i really dont see what the big deal is.

I can't see this game working if the map was spread on multiple discs. Likely the game will require a mandatory install.
