I commented on that earlier:

I highly doubt we'll see any other mandatory install games on 360 anytime soon. I suspect Rockstar has enough sway with the single most popular console game franchise to make MS bend on this front a little for them and them only.

Last gta game I buy. Still a fun game though, obv.
Imo, it's pretty obvious that this scene was all about making the player feel uncomfortable. One of the rare moments in the game that goes beyond silly satire and provokes some real political commentary.

Got round to to the torture stuff. Thought it was mildy amusing and par for the course for Trevor who gives not a **** about anything. That was pretty clear from the first 30 seconds of meeting him.

I wouldnt do 95% of what he does IRL but thats the point. Imma sat on my sofa pressing buttons.

Meh to the morality argument.

If you guys are confused about the context - MS has released two versions of the 360 that are pretty derpy (when first released there were cheaper models with no HD at all, I think the slims had a 4GB hard drive that had no space for a temp device), and so in order to ensure that all games work on all 360 models, you cannot (on 360)
- do mandatory installs
- assume that a temp device will be there (your game has to still work if its only storage is system memory)

For GTA5, though, MS allowed Rockstar to do a mandatory 8gb install, which for some 360 users means they have to go buy a USB stick because their console can't play the game on its own. This is the first game MS has allowed to do that.

Take-Two announced this morning that Grand Theft Auto V generated more than $1 billion in retail sales during its first three days on sale. “We believe this marks the fastest that any entertainment property, including video games and feature films, has reached this significant milestone,” Take Two noted in its announcement.

"Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon and Rockstar Games continues to redefine what can be achieved in interactive entertainment," said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. "We are incredibly proud of the extraordinary critical and commercial response to Grand Theft Auto V."

Earlier this week, Rockstar announced that GTA 5 made $800 million in one day. Analysts previously estimated that the game would earn $1 billion in its first month, but it appears they underestimated just how excited people are to visit Los Santos.

I can read. What I meant was that I know that 360 owners always had the option to install games to the hard drive while (I thought) that was never an option for ps3. I thought this was the first ps3 game to be able to install to the HDD.

That's amazing and also great for us because it will no doubt make rockstar even more keen to produce follow up games.

With the xbone coming out they probably don't give a **** at this point. Not sure even rockstar could gave gotten way with this a few years ago.
