Ps3 and gta V digital download?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, i am concidering to buy gta V for ps3 too (already got it on my xbox) but i wanna get it foir ps3 too to play online for free despite i hate the ps3's controller and only play on it for the ps3 exclusives and for online based games.

So... is it as they say that the digital version has just as much graphical problem as xbox when both disks are installed?

Cause, if i buy it online i wont be bothered to go to gamestop to buy it physically. I just need the paitence for the 17gb to be downloaded (which can take a great while on the old and slow downloading system even with 70Mbit pipe)

I have the digital version from the PSN on a ps3 slim ~ 2010 and besides the obvious FPS dips because it is being played on 8yr old hardware it plays acceptable (READ: normal to what a console gamer is used to, not PC gamer that is used to HD @ 60+ fps).

Buy a physical copy. The digital download does suffer pop-in and texture and model issues.

I didnt mean the fps clips, i get that too on xbox. I ment the bugs where textures pops in later than usual. The "do not install the disk" major bug.

Yes, the digital download suffers that issue. It's not a bug, per say. It's just that the last-gen is not quite capable of delivering the massive amounts of data fast enough. When you play the game with half the data on the HDD and the other half in the disc drive, the 'bug' goes away since the data can be drawn from two places at once. This can't happen with the digital download because there is no disc; thus, pop-in.
