In case people are not aware, GTAV will not work on older PS3's. There are 18 different models of the PS3, and the only way to tell is by the actual model # on the back of the system. The first few models produced do not have a strong enough processor to handle the graphic depth that GTAV has. The game will load up and start to install but eventually stop moving no matter how long you let it set. It will then tell you there is 1000 or so hours before installation is complete. This is your sign that your PS3 will not play this game. I only gave the game a 1 rating because I could not play it seeing how I have the first PS3 model.
This game requires 8 GB of space to install which is not an issue with the large hard drives on consoles these days. I prepped and made sure i had 40GB of space available before the install. The install froze at 7GB every time i attempted to install the game and eventually crashed my PS3. After 10 attempts of attempting to install this game, i eventually quit and sent the game back.
I would highly advise you do not waste your time as the likely hood of this game installing on your PS3 is extremely low.
We waited for this?!?!?!?! I had more fun with the ps 2 games.... at least the driving controls were a lot better.... If you want to play a game of this style and with better controls and story I suggest Saints Row 1,2 or 3
