GTA V PS4 Needs 44.9 GB of Free Space


ps4-controller

Near the start of October, we discovered a pre-order page for GTA V on the European PlayStation Store that said players would need at least 50 GB for the game. At the time, we compared it to the PS3 version’s 18 GB requirement.

Now, the PlayStation Store page for GTA V’s PS4 digital download says the file size is 41.8 GB. However, Reddit user DallasStars1999 pre-ordered it and was told 44.9 GB is needed. That’s not as big as the initial report, but it’s still massive compared to the original’s size.

This is most likely due to the HD textures. It seems as though many PS4 and Xbox One games have massive file sizes. Hard drives are bigger now, but this still poses a potential problem for players who prefer digital copies of games. What format are you getting GTA V in, and what do you think about the PS4 version’s file size?

  1. Hard drives are bigger now, but this still poses a potential problem for players who prefer digital copies of games. What format are you getting GTA V in, and what do you think about the PS4 version’s file size?

    This is a dumb question. Both the PS4 and Xbox One install the whole game even if you have a disc. Put in the disc and the game will be copied to the hard drive, or download the game and it will be downloaded to your hard drive. So regardless of your choice, you will lose hard drive space. Can’t believe this website still doesn’t know that after more than a year of release!

    1. Yes, but with disc if you decide to delete to clear some space, you can easily re-install and be back playing in very short time while it downloads in the background. With digital only you don’t have the same flexibility if you decide to delete, you have to wait for the entire file to download. At least I’m pretty sure that’s what the point was….I think.

      1. Yeah, that’s cool and all. But the fact is that they somehow present this as if you have a choice in this article. As if you don’t have the problem of running on low space when you buy it on disc.
