Here’s the latest update on Grand Theft Auto V. According to Rockstar Games, the upcoming sequel will require a one-time mandatory installation for the Xbox 360 and PS3, with the former being shipped with two discs. The main reason for this: so gamers can experience both GTA V and GTA Online without swapping discs.
Rockstar made the announcement in their Asked & Answered post:
“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.”
All GTA V content can be loaded directly onto the consoles or on any USB 2.0 flash drive carrying 8GB of memory. Time to start cleaning out those internal hard drives.
