Digital Foundry: Rockstar recommends installing disc one, but leaving disc two to run from the DVD drive. Why? Digital Foundry reveals some startling pop-in issues - that are resolved if you follow the developer's advice.
Gaming on DVD's is so old school. Think back to the PS2 days for Sony. Next Gen is miles and miles ahead. Soon....
Installed on disc take more time to load stuff.
You'll see come Next Gen and with both using Blu-ray drives now instead of just one. Everything will be on one disc and will have faster drives. Even GOTY editions. It's always been this way for the PS3.
I still wonder if I download the game on PSN or XBL. We gonna have to deal with texture loads because we don't have a disc to read from?
If anything I think the Digital version will offer somewhat of a better performance for the simple fact it's reading off the hard drive.
for what i know, this problem is a Xbox 360 version problem. There are no reports in the Ps3 version whit installing GTA V.
Not if you have a SSD hard drive installed in your PS3.
If you have to slow it down to 33% speed to really even notice things like that, not really an issue
it's even more noticeable at normal speed. XD
Well I still use the Phat model, so I will be installing on the HDD no matter what to make sure it keeps the temp down. I would rather have a shrub pop up a second late instead of having my Xbox get a RROD.
what version of the xbox do you have that you're worried about the rrod
It is not very noticeable but I cant help to notice that every time something pop ups somewhere back in my brain asks "what just happened?"
Yeah it's like watching a thrilling ghost story. O_ o What was that! o _O What just happened!? O.O Oh sh.. Wtf is going on!
I can't wait to play this on my next gen powerhouse Wii U! Oh, wait...
hmmmm... i wonder what the digital copy for PS3 is like? since that's what i am getting...
Me too, how big is the download anyway, PS+ has been kicking my HDDs a**
i think it's 18GB, but when you pre-order it says to make you you have 36GB... doesn't affect me too much since i upgraded to a 1TB drive not too long ago. but i agree, PS+ has not been good to my HDD space (in fact it's why i upgraded).
HHD reads should be faster - if optimized - than DVD. This is identical to the situation when Skyrim released - only installed Xbox 360 are affected. R* will fix this soon enough. And fully installing the discs will once again be for the best best. Until then, no install for me. [ :( I almost always do install ]
so install disc 1 and leave disc 2 on the dvd, simple enough
Normally, this isn't a huge deal, but ever since I played Rage on the PS3, I just can't ignore it. That game had so many texture pop-in issues it was insane. I bugged me so much, I could only get through half the game before selling it. I just couldn't handle it lol. Has anyone heard of this happening in the PS3 version by chance?
Pop outs really dont matter unless you are really scanning to much and already played the game like 10x...if first time playig you gonna be like WTF was that!!!
So, is the PS3 version going to be fine? I should still install on HDD and not run from disc?
I think PS3 version will have to be installed either way it goes.
R* would have told is if this was a problem for PS3 users.
i barely noticed anything on these videos and it isn't enough to make me bitter about it. i doubt that if i have cops chasing me that i'm going to stop to admire and complain aboit the textures not being there while i'm getting shot at.
Wait till you crash into an invisible building while flying a plane, take the advice, dont install play disc.
