Forbes - We all know that GTA 5 is going to be a massive game in terms of what it brings to the market, but it’s also a massive game, literally.
Wasn't aware the PS3 needed it. Is this to help the consoles cope with what's in the game?
To make sure it runs as smooth as possible, yes.
Hell they could have said 16 gb... for this game I will gladly give them whatever they want... It also helps that I have a 500GB in my PS3 and 114GB of space left... No worries GTA V... I'm ready.. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
It would be cool if they could allow us to install more if we so choose to help increase performance or textures. I wouldn't mind a 16GB install if I got additional benefit from it.
@famous Hell I would install the whole game so I never have to worry about having the disc in and can hop in anytime, I'd get the digital version but its gta I need that map and guide and case in my collection. On topic: getting the midnight launch but clearly won't play it that night w such a massive install abd I work tuesday...but I'm off wed and thursday so come tuesday night ill be playing till I work on friday!
@inmusicutrust Why get it midnight if you're not gonna play it? Get it from Amazon, if you're from the UK it's cheaper than anywhere else right now. Plus, the install should only take about 10 minutes, if that.
I was about to say.. an 8GB install is large for a console but I wouldnt expect it to last past 20 mins, worst case scenario. not the end of the world
i have 200GB free space RS, let's get down to business
Sucks for me, now I have to make room because my PS3 has a nasty virus on it that makes it download "adult media". Now where am I going to stash my "quarantined" movies?
Is that the story you told her?
More than likely, this will mitigate extreme load times give as much of a smooth experience as possible. Just taking into consideration how massive this game is supposed to be, I'm honestly shocked than you even have the option to NOT install this to the hard-drive.
This is correct. Most of the "standard files" will be loaded onto the HD for quick loading, like radio stations, vehicles, pedestrians and audio files, since that's what most players will be using the most or experiencing the most at frequent times.
Does it count for the digital version??
if im not wrong,anything you buy digital will be installed the whole thing.When I preordered GTA V on ps store ,in the descriptions it said that you have to have at least 36GB free of HDD.I could b wrong.
I'm still rocking an 80 gig Fat. I'm gonna have to delete a couple things.
My 60gig fat just got ylod a few weeks ago, perfect timing as it was when I was getting lots of overtime and upgraded to a 250gig slim. Gta I'm ready for you. Side note I got the ylod playing TLOU factions, 30 seconds into a match, the ONLY time I've ever played in the downtown map. Still dunno why nobody likes that map as i havent actually played it :(
Hmmm, I'll barely be able to play BF3 & this. Only have the 20 GB still, but it's really only like 14.6 or so.
I will clear that much space,...Gladly.
That's bigger than most games on the PS3 and 360.
The last if us is 16gb
The Last of Us isn't the only PS3 game.
MGS 4 says hi.
Actually around 12 gb is roughly an average. But it's close, which is pretty amazing.
Most games are cut in half or "optimized" for the Xbox 360's limited disc space. The average game before memory "optimization" is between 10 and 16 gigabyte, with higher-end games averaging between 20 and 30 gigabyte. Max Payne 3 uncompressed is 30 gigabyte MGS4 was 20 gigabyte GTA IV uncompressed is 16.4 gigabyte Assassin's Creed Brotherhood uncompressed was around 16 gigabyte Saints Row 2 uncompressed is 11 gigabyte So with the install plus the normal game, GTA V will be around 16 gigabyte, which is double the size of what GTA IV was on the Xbox 360, but then again it's four times as big as GTA IV and has more of everything.
I would say its only bigger than most multiplatform games... Most ps3 exclusives range from 20-50gigs.
I will abide...
8 or 80, there is no space that can't be made available for GTA5 on my HDD.
anything for gta..time to uninstall saint row
I already have a 750gb HDD in my PS3 so this really isn't that big of a deal for me.
My Hard Drive is Ready
Looks like us PS3 owners are going to Play it on Sept. 18....... I chose not to buy it on 360 due to my friends being on PS3, so maybe down the line I might buy it for 360...It depends...
Hahaha I said the same thing
