GTA 5 comes on two discs on Xbox 360, requires mandatory 8GB install


The Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto 5 requires a mandatory install on both PS3 and Xbox 360 and will ship on two discs on the latter.

"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," said Rockstar in a Q&A published this today.

"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.

"For Xbox 360, Grand Theft Auto V will ship on two discs; Disc 1 will be used for a one-time mandatory install and Disc 2 will be used to play the game. After the install, players will be able to enjoy both Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online without any need to switch discs."

You'll need at least 8GB of free space in order to install the game on Xbox 360 and PS3.

"A new USB flash drive is recommended to ensure optimum performance," says the Rockstar Q&A.

GTA 5 is released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 17, 2013. You can pre-order below.

What's "new USB flash drive" for?

Real shame it's not releasing on PC as I really want the game but I'm not buying it for old gen consoles this close to new consoles.

It will be releasing for PC eventually, what's wrong with getting it for "Old Gen Consoles"? it's not like you will have a lot of games to play on the "Next Gen Consoles" out of the gate
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Because I'm selling my 360 when Xbox one comes out so I'm not buying any more games for 360 at this point, plus most of my gaming is done on PC now so most of the new releasing coming soon I can grab on PC, just annoying I will have to wait for them to port it to PC (hopefully it's not a crappy port)

Or you know it could be like red dead and not get ported but i reckon it will.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I think it will cos there will be an even bigger out cry if GTA 5 doesn't get ported & I think it will be a good port since the PC has had a good track record as of late
Whitey's avatar

If they don't do a PC release then they at least need to port it to PS4 and Xbox one, why would they release such a big game only on consoles at the very end of the generation.

"A new USB flash drive is recommended to ensure optimum performance," What does this mean exactly?
Zombieflamingo's avatar

I assumed it was for people with the 4GB 360 so they know they can save it to a usb.

It's Rockstar, you will have just about as much luck trying to figure out Nintendo
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
But if that was the case, wouldn't that be required as you can't play without the 8GB install, so the 4GB console would need it, not just "to ensure optimum performance"

It's not really the end of a console generation. PS2 was still going strong after the release of the PS3, hence why God of War 2 sold really well.

Dark Souls 2 is coming out after the new console launch & so is Lightning Returns, Fable Anniversary & Lords of Shadow 2

Doubt it, if next gen consoles fail that bad then I'll stick to PC, I already do like 80% of my gaming on PC with Steam, only get consoles for exclusives really.

I made the mistake of selling a console to buy a new one once, never again.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
The only regret I will have about selling my 360 is no more Gears of War (for now at least, Gears 4 Xbox one!) but other than that I only have 11 games for 360 at the moment and 4 of them are Gears games, so I'm not missing much.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
If they make a Gears 4 i just hope they let the original team do it and not the ones that made judgement.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
As long as they put Locust back in MP and go a little back to the Gears 1/2/3 style then it's all good.

I know Cliffy B left but not sure about the others. I had no problem with the campaign it was just the multiplayer that was terrible. Why completely change it by making it human v human and take away the downs and executions.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
So your saying Whitey that you never go back and play old games? Anyhoo I have no opinion on Gears as I have only played the first two and I didn't like the online.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Not on old consoles no, if classics get ported to new systems or PC then yes I play old games, but I don't keep old consoles to play them. About Gears, Cliff B and Rod both left the team, not sure how much of the original team is still left but those were pretty much the main 2 guys.

I installed Remember Me to USB flash drive, and then while I was playing I started downloading stuff on to it at the same time, as the HDD was filling up, and it made the game (video sequences more so) jerky and the sound go all weird, so had to cancel the download and restart. I have never had that problem when playing games installed to HDD and downloading at same time to HDD. It was also a 32GB flash drive, so that could be it, as the official ones only go up 16GB, or it could be that flash drives are not as great as HDD. I am keeping my Xbox 360 until it loses support and the next gen have way more games for them.

I still go back to my PS2 and Gamecube to play some games from time to time. Valkyrie Profile 2 & Smash Bros Melee FTW
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
To be honest though, when I first bought the 360, Saints Row kept me going for such a long time, I actually still have the exact copy on me still, longest game I've ever kept I think. So I'm hoping Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Watch Dogs and some others keep me going for a while. I have to admit, Mario Party on the GameCube was an absolute blast, had so much fun on that game with a friend.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 3 years ago
I have not played any of the Saints Row games yet although I have them all, and #4 is out soon. I have not played Dead Rising 1 (much) or 2 (at all), Forza 3 or 4 (although have played Horizon quite a bit). No point investing in a new console and more games until played the others on 360. I will probably get Watch Dogs on 360 or PC in the meantime. With all games seeming to appear as "on demand" as well as retail, for next gen, games should be more easily obtainable unlike now, where they go OOP (out of print), some can get 2nd hand but if they are rare they can sell for silly prices. The only reason why may need to get a next gen sooner is friends start playing the games on them, and being "living" "always on" open worlds than just open worlds. GTA 5, MGS 5 and the many PC MMOs may be all that is needed for now.

David, this thing where you randomly appear and start ragging on people for how they wanna spend their money is getting a little old don't you think? The man wants an Xbox, let him buy an Xbox. If he want to buy a rainbow dressing gown, sparkly bunny slippers and an orange deer stalker to wear while he's playing it, that's no ones business but his own. You ain't paying for it, don't worry yourself with other people's choices of console.

In my opinion, the ps4 is the better console. But what you fail to understand is that the Xbox is better for some people, for whatever their reasons the Xbox is a better console for them. Who are you to tell them they are wrong?
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I'll break my "No replying to David pact" now. David every person who loves games is going to get both consoles (Maybe not at the same time)

Being an Xbox man, I don't think the extra 80 is too much of a big deal, I might even use this Kinect but i doubt it. Think they Xbox one has good console exclusives coming out for it too. Also my friends are all getting the Xbox one so it makes sense for me to.
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Trouble Maker you have slightly creeped me out, how on earth did you know what I planned on wearing while gaming on Dead Rising 3? Also David, I'm buying Xbox one because I like and prefer Xbox to PlayStation, and even just the slightest chance there might be another Gears on Xbox one is enough to make me buy one, plus Dead Rising 3, Forza 5 and the new Crackdown (we all know it's coming) but I'm not denying PS4 will be a great system with great games, especially any Naughty Dog games.

A new console is an investment for what used to be 5 years but now it's 10 years, £80 is nothing in the grand scheme of things

PS4 will only be better if the devs make use of the console. Technically PS3 was also better hardware than Xbox 360 but there were hardly any multi platform games that took advantage of its extra power, and both versions ended up about the same. Will have to see, but as of right now the Xbox ONE is looking better for me, as it has games that I like the look of, whereas PS4 does not have any games that interest me, but for now I am not getting either, but just sticking to current gen, and next year or the year after when things are getting into full swing, things may be different.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
The thing is about PS3 Multi-Platform games is that when they make a game it can be ported to the Xbox with relative ease but with the PS3 they have to do a bit more work to get it to run on the system (Don't quote me on this)
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Wouldn't say it would be out of date, the PS3 and 360 didn't really get going until a year or two into the console life, PS3 I felt took longer to get going.
