GTA 5 PC RETAIL COPYS TAKES UP 7 DISCS

 

GTA 5 has been one of the largest game releases ever, remaining popular when released on the lat generation consoles and a year later on the current generation consoles. PC gamers have been waiting significantly longer for the game to release, but that has done little to reduce the immense amount of hype surrounding this game release. 

GTA V on PC will take up a staggering 65GB of storage space, and as such will need a large number of disks to store the retail copies. Unlike current generation consoles, PCs do not typically have a Blu-Ray drive, so the PC retail release need to use the aging DVD format, which means that the game will have 7 disks on the box.

Pictures of the retail box can be seen below.

Below are the minimum and recommended specifications for GTA 5, which do say that you require a DirectX 10 or above compatible GPU. As you can see the minimum requirements are very low compared to many other modern titles and the recommended specifications seem very reasonable considering the relative power of the current generation consoles and the framerate at which they run at, this is a good sign that we have a great PC port on our hands, though we cannot confirm this before launch.

 

Minimum specifications:

OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1, Windows Vista 64 Bit Service Pack 2* (*NVIDIA video card recommended if running Vista OS)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
Memory: 4GB
Video Card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
HDD Space: 65GB

 

Recommended specifications:

OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
Memory: 8GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
HDD Space: 65GB

 

GTA 5 has been a long time coming on PC, and with delay after delay we hope that Rockstar will provide us PC gamers the solid PC port that we desire. We definitely do not want a repeat of GTA 4.

Oh God it looks so good though even though its seven disks. I tend to buy all my games as disk based versions, well at least on PS4 anyway but I always buy digital on PC, but honestly wouldn't mind getting the 7 disks for this.Quote

I have pre-ordered the retail copy, but I hope it contains a steam code as I don't have a DVD drive :/Quote

I set mine onto Steam pre-load at the first opportunity to let my poor old ADSL line struggle with it!

Given that so few people use disc-based installs now, and so few people have blu-ray readers, I have to say I'd be surprised. Not saying that there wouldn't be a market for it, only that when you consider it as a venn diagram, that group in the middle is looking very, very small.

Retail copy is a Rockstar Social Club code IIRC, which is downloadable - not Steam though.Quote

Cheers jim. I think I'll cancel the pre-order. I much prefer to have only a few places to download my stuff. Don't need a dedicated launcher, it really annoys me when I clean install, which is what I do regularly.

I don't need the list to e longer. Uplay, Origin and Steam is enough for me right now. Might try GOG though.Quote

Why the didn't they also do a Bluray copy?

I imagine in due course they'll pass out steam codes for the social thing, we'll see.Quote
