Grand Theft Auto V to ship with two discs
Grand Theft Auto V
is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, and the folks over at Rockstar Games have been answering fan questions about the game. One question in particular that was asked was with regards to how many discs will be required to play the game.
According to Rockstar, the game will come on two discs; the first disc will be used to install the game onto your Xbox 360 or PS3. The second disc will be used to actually play the game.
With regards to how much space the game install will take up, Rockstar states:
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.
