I usually turn the music off too. I wish we could import music from our console.

As for graphics, my Xbox is doing fine. I saw a couple things like text not load completely but it was still readable, I haven't experienced any choppy-ness.

The only complaint I have is that unlike other GTA games, I have yet to find a favorite radio station. So far, the only one that really got me going was one when Eddie Murphy's Party All The Time came on. Don't know if more/better songs will come on later in the game, but so far kinda meh. There are rock/metal songs, but not many.

The driving is improved from past games, but you guys need to remember that the more you drive, the better you become. If you think playing as the first character is hard driving, you are gonna hate driving when you play as the other 2 in the beginning. Level up your stats and use your brakes and stop playing plinko with cars.

Funny how I've not seen the C7 in real life yet, but it's already in the game. And love the whole actually putting the tops down on a convertible now. I also ended up spending time just watching The Loneliest Robot in Great Britain in a movie theater in the game. This game is totally going to replace life.

The cops and people's reactions are definitely more violent now. I guess it makes sense that if you go and punch a guy, he would punch you back and not just take a beating like previous games. Also makes sense that if you break the law, any law, the cops will come to get you.

As typical with most launch day games, sometimes the game has problems connecting to Social Club.....mostly when I take selfies and want to upload them to the internet haha.

Otherwise, no complains so far on other aspects..... no graphic problems here on the 360.

Pro Tip: Do NOT jump out of the blimp without buying a parachute first. Looks cool, but you're in for the fall of your life


edit: All the songs played in the Strip Clubs are on point! lol.... I guess just gotta be patient to find the good songs or just go to Strip Clubs all day!

The driving did take some getting used to. Of course, it doesn't help that I have another game's driving controls in my head.

The strippers in this game are definitely better then in GTA IV

I spent a couple hours exploring around last night. The map is so huge and varied, so amazing. I'm glad the cops are much more challenging now, you have to be on your toes because they can actually drive/shoot now and will fuck your day up. It makes the chases more intense because if they stop you, you're gonna die.

Btw I gotta try this





Has anyone gone out to the military base yet?

Not really, you just need a quick and nimble car to get around it. I've already stolen a tank, helicopter and fighter jet from it. When I had the jet I returned and shot down a few helicopters and other jets. Received 5 star wanted level for the first time.

Be aware that random civilians in the area do call the cops on you too lol. Real messed up.
Yes they do. In their hand me down police cars. But it is also easier to evade them before they reach you because the wild is so huge. On the other hand, it is also harder to hide from them due to lack of alleyways. Pro tip: if being hunted at night, turn off your headlights, or shut your vehicle engine off. I've done the whole DRIVE evade from cops move.....so intense!

Has she walked in on you at the Strip Club with a double dance yet?

Crew status is......... where are all the suggestions that people are supposed to make?!


At this point, I just want a name. I'll do the rest myself, or if everyone can't agree on a name, I'll just do it all by myself this weekend and then post the link for everyone to join and if anyone has a problem with it, they can suck it.

GTA V Digital Version Reportedly Suffering Issues

Supposedly it's the same issue Xbox 360 users who install both discs have experienced.

by Luke Karmali
September 18, 2013

Submit Tweet Share +1 Share
Reports are circulating that the PSN version of Grand Theft Auto V suffers from the same issues as Xbox 360 copies do when the play disc is installed.

For those not up to speed, Rockstar originally issued a warning against installing both the discs contained in the retail Xbox 360 version of the game as it causes frame-rate, texture and pop-up issues. While a workaround for this has now been found, users on Reddit are reporting that buying the digital copy of the game from the PSN store results in the same problems.

According to one Reddit user, specific issues that have been highlighted include "texture/geometry pop-in at the exact same spots as that 360 video - fence at the pier, plants round the baywatch house(?), etc. Also has very noticeable aliasing, but not sure if that's better on the 360."
We haven't been able to verify if the issue is real, though have reached out to Rockstar to see if it's aware of the situation. As soon as we hear back, we'll update this story.

I wonder if having all that installed on the HD is what's causing the problem, it's having to read too much from the HD and not splitting up the work like it would reading from the HD and disc drive.

Congrats homies! We made history.

Take-Two has announced that Grand Theft Auto V generated approximately $800 million in sales worldwide during its first 24 hours on sale. According to Take-Two, this marks “the highest first day retail sales of any title in the history of the company and the Grand Theft Auto series.”

Take-Two notes that the figure includes sales across both platforms in all territories, but added that GTA 5 has not yet launched in Japan or Brazil.
