the ps3 version is also 16GB. the reason you need 36GB is because the installer has to extract the files before installing them. the actual game is smaller.

BTW here's a pic I took of what it says about the size of the game.

 

-- snip --

 

That means you need 36GB to install the game, not that the game is 36GB. It clocks in at around 16 and a half GB. Which is still massive!

 

I better start clearing my HDD now1

Where?!

 

Also it would be nice if the snow actually got heavy and you needed a bigger car to drive into it.  

 

It is difficult to give you a stream as they go up and down like yoyos as Rockstar clamp down on them.

Plus i'm sure it would be against the rules here. Look on the Grand Theft Auto V Reddit - They get posted there.

 

Also if you want to know about the snow. I will put it in a spoiler below.

It is a slight story spoiler, so some people might want to skip it.

 

Snow only seems to be in the prologue mission at the start of the game. I haven't watched any mission streams, only free roam. So i don't know if it comes back later on

 

Also when you see the water in motion. :|  it is beautiful.

on Xbox, (it was already known) disc 1 installs automatically (7.68 GB), so no luck on my old modded box which donated it's HD to a new slim.

Just because they shipped your copy doesn't mean anything, you'll still only get it on release day and if its shipped by UPS or FEDEX you'll get it at the end of the day..

With all the car customization going on in the game, I know you can swap engines and stuff. Screw a sports car I want a station wagon with a bad ass engine in it. Ultimate sleeper lol.

Yeah, they confirmed it on typical gamer. They are giving the cars as much customization as midnight club.

is there anymore known about the driving dynamic?

From what some video reviews are saying it'll be like midnight club, so I'm guessing the cars will crash by hitting some random texture in the grass :P

(that last part was only meant for comic effect, and true if you've ever played the first MC)

Amazon sells out of Grand Theft Auto V ahead of release

Days ahead of the global release of Grand Theft Auto V Amazon have sold out of the Xbox 360 version of the game

 

The gaming world has been eagerly anticipating what has been dubbed the "most exciting" event in the entertainment calendar - the release of the game which cost more to make then many Hollywood blockbusters.

 

But days before its release on Tuesday, Amazon announced that they had sold out of the game for certain consoles.

 

In a message on their website the said: ?Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox 360)--Stock Update. Please note--due to high demand, orders placed for Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox 360) from September 13 will be shipped as soon as we receive inventory.?

 

The online retail giant is thought to be the first to sell out, although the game is still available to pre-order

 

It is still available to pre-order on the PlayStation 3.

 

The video game reportedly cost around ?170 million to make and market - more than films such as Avatar - and has sparked so much interest that stores will open their doors at midnight on Monday for special launch events.

 

Experts are tipping the game to smash sales records and estimates suggest it could generate ?1 billion during its first year on sale when gamers are predicted to snap up some 25 million copies.

 

Tom Butler, social media editor of gaming site IGN.com, said thousands of workers have taken the day off for the launch or plan on calling in sick.

"Grand Theft Auto V will be the biggest entertainment launch of the year and possibly all-time with levels of consumer anticipation outstripping Harry Potter and Twilight," he said.

 

"With gamers queuing at midnight to be among the first to play and the developer boasting thousands of hours of game play, there's no surprise that we're likely to see an outbreak of GTA flu this September."

 

The gaming site polled 10,995 readers to ask whether they would take time off work on Tuesday when the GTA V goes on sale.

 

According to its findings, 5,059 readers (46%) said they booked the day off as holiday.

 

Another 2012 (19%) said they would phone in claiming to be unwell while 3,884 (35%) said they would wait to get their hands on the game.

 

Fans are expected to start queuing outside stores stocking the game tomorrow when a handful of shops will open their doors for night-time launches.

 

The Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series - which sees players buy virtual prostitutes - has accumulated sales of 135 million copies since its 1997 debut. GTA IV has reportedly sold more than 25 million copies since its 2008 release.
