How Big is Grand Theft Auto 5?


We’ve already heard of Grand Theft Auto V’s map size, bigger than all the previous maps put together and bigger than red redemption’s world. But if it’s bigger than those worlds we can only imagine how much data is stored in the game disc. Actually it’s not a game disc, it’s two game discs that holds the world. On the previous Q&A session, Rockstar has mentioned that:

“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. 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.

This initial install will require an Xbox 360 Hard Drive or an external 16GB USB flash drive with at least 8 GB of free space. If using a USB flash drive it must be at least USB 2.0 with a minimum 15mb/s read speed and formatted for Xbox 360 use. A new USB flash drive is recommended to ensure optimum performance.  For PlayStation®3, the game ships on one disc and will install content as soon as you insert the game. The install is roughly 8GB, and players will be able to play as soon as the install is complete.”
On the bright side we don’t have to switch discs while playing at any point of the game, but we have to sacrifice something in order to get something back, and so far it has been our anxiousness waiting for GTA , but now will most likely have to wait another period of time while we install the enormous game! Regardless, I’m very confident that this game will bring us a new experience that we can look back on this and say, “The wait was worth it”.

xBox 360 will require two gaming discs, while PS3 will only need one Blu-ray disc. Which console will you play GTA V from?
