GTA 5 GB size comes into question
Rumors that Grand Theft Auto V could be fitted to be a 60 GB game may not come as a revelation to some gamers, although many may question this considering the size of the last installment was about 10 to 15 GB. At the moment, we have no official figures, and we are currently contemplating what affect this have on PC gamers if GTA 5 does not release on this platform.
When you take a look at other Rockstar games like L.A. Noire, this title was initially a six-disc Xbox 360 title, and apparently, it took plenty of effort to whittle it down to three. The size involved in some games can be down to detail they put on the map and character performances and there is a high expectation that this will be the case with Grand Theft Auto 5. As far as the PC version is concerned, a petition has accumulated over 100k signatures, but we have no news from Rockstar at present, so we are still in the dark whether there is an intention to bring this to the PC.
Many PC gamers are starting to feel uneasy about GTA V making an appearance on their platform especially considering the amount of great customization features past games have had. However, some gamers are confident that much like the previous Grand Theft Auto IV, this next title will eventually come to the PC, and others feel that it will be nowhere near 60 GB.
We recently heard that Rockstar are considering other platforms, so there is not only an expectation this will come to the PC, but also the new Wii U could be on the cards. We get the impression a bigger game doesn’t always mean larger GB and the amount of time taken to produce it could mean they have learned how to cut back on GB used. If GTA 5 is anywhere near 60GB we can imagine that the Xbox version may need a good few discs, so we are less inclined to believe all the rumors that have recently been going around.
On another GTA V related note, our last post spoke about a longer story required for this upcoming game, as reports it will not be as long as its predecessor has had fans querying why. Some gamers may of found GTA IV too long or the story became boring amounting to many losing interest when it came to completing it, but a majority enjoyed the length and are more concerned with this next installment not being as repetitive, especially the missions.
Prior to this, we discussed the notion that multiple endings will be on offer and the addition of three protagonists has given us cause to reiterate why we need a longer game. We are hoping that that this version will keep fans enthralled all the way through, so there is a higher expectation that more gamers will intend to complete Grand Theft Auto V, and the fact that not that many people finished the last one should have no bearing on this new GTA title. Are you unsure about the speculation surrounding a 60 GB game? In addition, do you feel confident that you will eventually see Grand Theft Auto 5 on the PC?
