The lights are on
As this generation wore on, Xbox 360 users have gotten used to swapping discs mid-game. Assassin's Creed 3, Rage, L.A. Noire, and The Witcher 2 are just some of the titles that have had Xbox 360 users fumbling to swap DVDs. Grand Theft Auto V will ship on two discs, but Rockstar has figured out how to make it more convenient.
In a question and answer post on Rockstar's website, the publisher has assured eager inquirers that they won't need to leave their seats mid-game. Grand Theft Auto V's first disc will be used for installation purposes, and the second disc will run the game.
The 8 GB of content can be placed on the hard drive or a USB drive. The latter must be USB 2.0 compliant and have a read/write speed of 15 MB. Furthermore, Rockstar recommends a new USB drive for optimum performance. The PlayStation 3 version only has one disc, but users will experience an automatic installation upon placing the disc in the drive. For more on Grand Theft Auto V, we have previews on the world, heists, and combat. You might also recall that Grand Theft Auto V adorned our December 2012 cover.
Our TakeI would not recommend using a USB thumb drive to install mandatory game content unless you have no other choice. An external USB hard drive would be the way to go if you don't have enough internal storage for you Xbox 360. If you have the available cash and you're serious about playing Grand Theft Auto V, a hard drive is a worthwhile investment.

Funny picture. Rockstar makes games and portrays gamers as gross "can't do"s in the trailers for their new game. HA-- glad I am not yet in permanent cartman WoW pose.
Thats okey-dokey for me. A clean and simple download for a rather large game.
Oh, that sounds perfect! Exactly the way it was with Halo 4.
No problem for me and my 250 GB Xbox 360 S!
I can't believe disc switching was still a thing this gen. The last time I switched a disc while playing a game was way back when the original Playstation was around.
GTAV would be the best game from 2013.
omg, this game is going to be massive. So on the "can't wait" side of things
8GB? I'll just delete Halo 4 or Battlefield 3 off my hard drive. Those take up about 24.4gb and 14.7gb, respectively. However, with Battlefield 4, I'm going to need a helluvalot more, which I'm getting for both 360 & One.
Nothing new. Might have to get it for Xbox 360 to save some memory for my PS3 though.
yay thank you rockstar
PS3 FTW!!!! xD
Anyway GTA games have always been better on Playstation since thats were they belong. PS is GTA house. :)
Here's hoping a PC version won't take a year to be ported over :P. I'd normally get it on the PS3, but um...one of them young ones gave me that sad story about being too young to have a job to be a gamer, and I had to play Santa in March. All's I got left is a Vita and a PC (which I only have because kids insist that computers are for old people -_-). I gotta admit though...thought that was kinda cute :P.
