GTA V is the biggest PS4 game ever

2 min read


There are few games out there that I’d consider playing through again. Grand Theft Auto V however, is one such game that I’d happily repeat-offend my way through. It’s a massive game, make no mistake and it could also be one of the physically biggest such titles released so far on new-gen.

Because according to one GTA Forumite who snapped a screenshot, Grand Theft Auto 5 will be taking 50 gigabytes of real eastate on the PlayStation 4, a tenth of the storage capacity that the console has available then. This is the part right here where PC games start laughing and shouting “LUXURY”.


According to the listing, there’ll also be some wiggle-waggle motion support present, as it says that a “PlayStation Move navigation controller or Wireless Controller will be required for motion control features.” Combined with a rumoured first-person mode for the game, and it looks like this version of GTA V was holding back last year.

The Xbox One and PS4 version of the game arrives on November 18, while the PC version is out on January 27 next year. It’s boasting all the usual improvements such as increased draw distances, more radio content. denser traffic, better foliage and more varied weather effects. A better-looking game and all that.

But honestly, I’d just like a pre-load option right now that would allow me to start downloading so that I can play the game next year. Because I happen to have a puny line speed that makes all the local 4 and 10 meg kids laugh at me and kick sand in my face. Damn punks.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    What is Fat Bastard doing in the header? LOL

    Edit: Also that other fat dude and my favorite scene from the Wolverine Origins movie?

      Because GTA5 is a fat download and install. It’s just missing the fat cats from Rockstar

    I’m just thinking, PS4 peeps are getting GTA V now. PC soon also. Rockstar asking new game price for a year-old game. Seems a bit off to me. And don’t come with that “improved graphics” stuff. It’s an old game.

    • Spaffy

      Not like they didn’t make enough money the first time round, right?

      • Captain JJ Underleyened

        Exactly. Yet people still pay, because “that’s how the industry is now”.
        If they released the pc version along with the PS3 and Xbox 360 version it would’ve been modded by now to look even better than the one they’re going to release January only anyway.
        There’s no way I’m going to buy this game new. Will wait for a sale.
        The Witcher 3 however, that game looks to be worth every cent of a new game price tag and more.

  • Brady miaau

    Well now.

    Slaan my met n nat vis en smeer jam onder my arms!

    • Captain JJ Underleyened

      I need to try that.

      • ReaperOfSquirrels

        You do??? O_O

        • Spaffy

          hahaha 😀

        • Captain JJ Underleyened

          Well, with your level of excitement it seemed like something worth trying. Not on myself, of course.
          Oh Trevor!

    How is the server, did the SIZE9SHOE reboot work this time or did you try the 12GASHOTGUN reboot?

  • justerthought

    This is a hell of a jump in file size. 18GB on PS3 to 50GB on PS4. The graphics must be vastly superior with all those extra assets. I cannot wait to replay it.

  • MakeItLegal

    cant wait for pc edtion , and then all the mods

  • Sk3tz0

    HA didnt even realise Shadow of Mordor was installing.. why i love the PS4.. you dont even know your games are install.

  • HvR

    Feels like I’ve gone back in time.

    • We’ve updated to a new server on a new ip – and it may take some time for your ISP’s DNS to update – so some of you are being redirected to really old stuff. Sorry 🙁

      From our side, everything is current.
