The latest in the Grand Theft Auto series will require 8GB of hard disc just to be able to play it! It will be on 2 discs for Xbox 360 and 1 Blu-Ray disc for PS3.
The details were revealed via a Q&A on Rockstar's official website, in which the publisher confirmed the mandatory install applies to both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
The website reads: "Grand Theft Auto V is the largest and most ambitious game we have yet created, and takes full advantage of every ounce of processing power available in the current generation of consoles. In order to provide the best possible experience for such a massive and detailed world, the game will have installation requirements on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 systems."
The PS3 version will come on one Blu-ray disc that installs content when they first insert the disc and allows players to begin the game immediately afterwards.
The Xbox 360 SKU will use one disc for a one-time install, while the second disc will be used to play the game. Users will not be required to switch discs after the content has been installed.
This news means that anyone with a 4GB Xbox 360 will need to upgrade their console or add a bigger external hard drive.
But this shouldn't come as a shock to anyone who has played any of the GTA series. Most of them used the maximum processing power possible for the machines they were on and GTA V is no exception. It is supposed to be the biggest GTA ever and have more variety.
Grand Theft Auto V will be released on Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 17th.
Do you mind the mandatory install for a game that will blow the competition out of the water? Or do you think it shouldn't have to install and just run from the disc?
See you next time
