Report: GTA V Install Size Pinned at 50GB on PS4

PS4 owners will need to make some space for Grand Theft Auto V, as reports indicate the install could take up to 50 GB of hard-drive space.

The report comes straight from the GTA Forums, which spotted a screencap of GTA V‘s European listing that mentions a “50GB minimum save size”.

That’s a tenth of the PlayStation 4’s 500GB hard drive for a single game.


If true, this clocks GTA V as the console’s biggest game install to date. According to the PlayStation Store, Wolfenstein: The New Order ranks second at a ~43.7 GB space requirement, with Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us: Remastered checking in at ~40 GB.

The European listing also has a curious mention of PlayStation Move support, which might meant that gamers could essentially play tennis using the interactive Wii-like peripheral.

Neither Rockstar Games or its parent company Take Two Interactive (NASDAQ: TTWO) have confirmed anything at this point, so these reports have to be chalked up to speculation and rumor. So far leaks regarding Grand Theft Auto V have been spot-on, but until Rockstar has final say the news can’t be validated.

Also with the high fidelity makeover Los Santos is getting in the next-gen ports, it wouldn’t be surprising if PS4 gamers did have to shell out a tenth of their HDD space just for the game.

GTA V is slated for a launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 18, and will come to PC on Jan. 27, 2015.
