The truth behind GTA V six-disc Xbox 360 game

Society&Religion:

People keep acting like GTA V is going to be around 30 to 40 GB but honestly we do not see it being over 14 GB but lets just say that when the game is finished it winds up being 30 GB.

A standard Xbox 360 disc can get about 8 GB so you are looking at four discs at the start for Grand Theft Auto V.

Now at this point you apply some enhanced compression technology. (Grand Theft Auto V, Xbox 360)

Six discs is too much...

I can't even picture six discs in one case. All I can is thank god for blu-ray, seriously.

"They can just compress it like LA Noire!"

Just no. they didn't just compress data to shrink LA Noire to 3 discs. They had to end up cutting two whole sections from the game because of the 360's disc constraints.

Sorry, we're basing articles off a guess at the data size of a game now?

Lol... Ridiculous.

lets hope for the best i guess, remember gtaiv ran in 720p on the 360 and sub-hd on the ps3. So no matter the number the disc it could still look the same on both platforms.

regardless im getting the game on day one.

ps3 version.
