I applaud Rockstar for making GTA V a complete digital based download on PSN, which of course brought on another set of issues. As we know.
Now the game is out, the leaks won't matter much. Had to be careful on Rockstar's own site with any mention of the leaks, so I'm glad I let it blissfully pass without scouring endlessly for them.
Now with game in hand, I feel the crash handling physics is the toughest issue to overcome in enjoying what is the final product. Color, animations, loading of textures and sound streaming all seem rather fine on the Xbox360, and I was worried with the prior GTA freezing up on me, It happened in the past month, though nothing like GTA IV had been on PS3 which I originally bought, paying over $400 at the time on my first one.
I don't wish for people to abuse this thread or anyone's forum with the type of ranting you see on YouTube, it's beyond childish, so the main hope is anyone commenting have some experience with the system and games before they critique something they don't own.
I would hope garnering views of experience from each set of owners help determine if the game really varies at all between them, or if marginally so, how?
I should append this by mentioning for XB360 you get two discs, one installs just over 8GB to the HDD or memory module of your choosing, the other is left in as you play, the game actually seems to load faster then the stand alone Episodes or GTA IV, but not a whole lot, if you were to compare SATA to SSD for example.
I think it was roughly 5 or 6 minutes, and I believe, compared to my use of USB 3.0 on my computers, probably moved somewhere around 20MB per second. Anyone time it? I did a short vid clip and thought about using my iPod's stop watch to time how long it really takes.
