Forums - Sony Discussion - GTA5 getting too big for PS3 12GB...

Why would anyone buy one of those low storage models?



Around the Network

Why would anyone who's into games like that buy a 12GB model? In fact what sort of person buys a console with less storage space than most smartphones?

Because they are cheaper than the ones with built in HDD so I guess many casuals buy this model just because of price.

That's my guess as well. People who will play a couple of games a year (CoD + FIFA/Madden), but use the console as an entertainment hub for Netflix/NFL/MLB/whatever else...

And as you said, you can expand the storage in both very easily and cheaply should the need arise...

Of course it doesn't work there but it never worked at all there.

Yes. Rockstar didn't even find it necessary to address them as it was hopeless from the get go. It's a good thing you can find a cheap third party hd for your ps3 if you're in this situation. Can't say the same about the 360 variant, but that's more Microsoft's fault, not the owners.

You sound salty, i wonder why? Can't you reply normally? I was pointing something out, but it's all console wars with you. Was also obvious by your op but i gave you the benefit of the doubt.

What? Why should I be salty. I took the same words like you I am all easy. But I am again wondering why you get personal. You have nothing more to say to my reply? Ok, then leave it. YOU are trying to lead this discussion to a personal level as you did many times before which I don't understand.

If I said something wrong, prove me wrong. If not, I guess it's better you leave as any other discussion is of no use.

Repeating everything i said a changing a couple of things here and there is called sarcasm. And that's more personal than me making a comment about the topic. I don't know why you feel so attacked everytime someone leaves a comment that you don't like. Try replying to a comment without the personal BS and see how much better the discussion will get.

*sigh* No, that is not sarcasm. Again, I will stop this here. I am not feeling attacked or anything, just proved you wrong in one part and reversed your hit against 360 for ps3 and the result was your only personal answer.

I can't help you if you don't know what you are talking about (sarcasm), sorry.

No, you just need a USB memory stick.

For about $10 you can get a 16gb stick or even a 32gb stick. That's enough space to play GTAV.

No, Rockstar addressed by allowing people to use USB memory devices.

You guys are making presumptions and doing no research.
