Re: GTA V - releases September 17

note for 360 players - this game requires an 8gb install. so if you have one of the old 4gb 360s or one of the cheap ones with no HD, you have to buy a USB hard drive to be able to play the game at all

It won't even read it to let me format it. I really just hope I'm doing something wrong.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Is there a little switch on the outside of it to make it write protected?

What kind of flash drive is it?

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

If PC won't even pick it up sounds like it's faulty. USB3 shouldn't matter, should work (albeit slower) in v2 and even v1 ports.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

No switch, here's the link to it. The reviews say it works for xbox, maybe I just got a faulty unit.

Your comp should read it. Then it needs to be formated as fat32 before it works with the xbox

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Got my hands on a special edition today at work. And before you ask, no I couldn't buy it and bring it home. God I had the urge to just stuff it in my pants though, lol

In spoilers in case there are still people out there that haven't seen the box.

No dice. The weird thing is, after I initially plugged it into my comp, it read it as an Xbox 360 console. I deleted that and plugged it back in and now it doesn't read anything at all. So it did something when connected to the Xbox, I just don't know what, and it didn't do it right.

Thanks for the help and suggestions everyone.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

just got home and decided to check my e-mail before getting to bed but now I am too excited to sleep as I got an e-mail from amazon today saying it was dispatched. I see some already got their's from amazon so hopefully mine will come first thing Monday and I can play it for a good few hours after work as I have a long day Tuesday so would be unlikely i'd get to play it until Wednesday if it comes when it's supposed to.


Saw a pic of the map size compared to the map from GTA 4 and omg! The last time I was this excited over a game was when I was in junior school and my mum had brought me and my brother gameboy colors and pokemon red and blue.

i'm working 3-11 on monday, getting to walmart by 1130 then getting my copy by probably 1230ish.

i've done this with every hyped release over the last few years. it's never been a problem in regards to selling out.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Set myself a rule that I am not going to buy this game until I have got a job. Cause, you know, unemployment is frowned upon. Have a feeling I will buckle very quickly.

Just picked up my copy, felt like I was in a drug deal lol, had to pick up from out back of shop away from CCTV, in a plain box, strict instructions to stay offline and uninstall before going back online and reinstalling again. Might delete the save file too to be safe so prob just gonna do a couple missions and then free roam. Tbh I thought about telling him if he's that concerned I'll just wait till tomorrow night, but it was in my hands by then and I just couldn't do it lol

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

The game gets a 10/10 from me so far.

I have never managed to complete the previous games (or get anywhere close to completing), always got bored after a while from the mindless wandering about and doing the same stuff over.

The way they have integrated the story and the new instant character switches in this one is pretty awesome and makes the game waaaaay more fun and interesting.

The gameplay is awesome just as you would expect and the random **** that happens in the streets is really cool. I haven't even touched the surface yet so there is no doubt that the game is only going to get even better.

[x] Was worth the hype.

Seems ridiculous, probably tens of thousands of people already got it delivered and playing

+1. Every previous GTA I have always played intensely for about 2 weeks and then never touched the game again. Hope this one provides longevity.

It's perfectly safe to be on Live with it at this point. Tons of people have been for a couple of days now.

This is wrong. Microsoft waits until a few days after launch to drop the bans. Id stay off live until after the official launch
