Should I buy psn version of gta V ? Is it broken?

9 replies 407 views Edited Sep 17, 2013

Well, is the PSN version broken? I can handle some minor pop in/draw distance/etc. Issues,  but ive heard of ps3's bricking, installations stalling, and crashing. I have been scouring the web trying to find a definite answer to this but its like people are being silenced or something. So can anyone who has actually bought the psn version please speak up for me and all the other people wondering if they should get this digitally. (by the way I have a ps slim (original slim) that doesn't read disc anymore hence why im wanting the digital. Just installed a new 1TB hybrid HD a week ago, so space is not an issue. Thanks in advance. I have been waiting way too long for this game and its  just killing me having to wait knowing that the game is finally out. It will be so sad if this game turns out to be all messed up.  Also sorry if this post is in the wrong place. Never dealt with forums.

Hey thanks guys and or girls? For the quick reply, you're making my day. I have been downloading digitally for a couple years now due to my inability to play discs and have been loving it and have never had any problems. Hopefully that doesn't change. Anyone else having good or bad results with digital gta V? Let us know.

Well my first attempt to download caused my PS3 to completely freeze, my second attempt yielded corrupted data at time of install. Currently re-downloading the 18gb file AGAIN. Needless to say I am not happy, never had a problem downloading anything on my PS3. Also I have the super slim God of War edition PS3 with a 1tb had. Was really looking forward to coming home from work and play some GTA, not re-download this for who knows will take how long. Kicking myself for not just picking up a physical copy. 😠

Runs & plays great haven't run into any problems.

 

Also just to be on the safe side do not download it in the background.

I'm not having any problems, my only complaint is that switching characters(when they are across the city from eachother) isn't as fast as it is in the trailer

I hear you, I guess it was to speed up  the trailer, it seems like its does a quick load before switching characters, still nice to see the size of los santos even at night
