PSA: Rockstar says not to install GTAV "play" disc on Xbox 360

#1clippjoint2Posted 9/16/2013 10:50:36 AM
The Xbox 360 version of GTAV ships on two discs, one labelled as "install" and the other as "play." The game features a mandatory 8GB installation from the first disc, with the second required to sit in a user's disc tray in order to play.

Some users might have considered installing the play disc to their hard drive too, but Rockstar Games advised against this on Twitter if users want "optimal performance."

Maybe it tries to load from both the install and the disc at the same time, so installing the disc would mean that it would have to load from the mandatory install and then the optional install instead of doing both concurrently.

Just like installing Halo 3 making it run worse wasn't a bug until they fixed it?

FFS you fanboys need help....

Thanks very much for this. I was totally planning on installing both discs.

I don't have a lot of knowledge in this area but my guess would be that the hard drive would have issues trying to read information from both installations at the same time, whereas if you just install the one disc the disk drive runs the play disc while the hard drive runs the installation. This is merely speculation though.

Exactly, Stig is so convinced the games are full of bugs that now he is inventing ones that don't exist.

If that is indeed how it's working, they should have tested for that and modified their installation of disc 1 accordingly.
