GTA 5 PS3 pre-load files leak, suggest its a 18 GB download

Saturday, 24th August 2013 15:55 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Grand Theft Auto 5 presumably became available for pre-load in some regions to users who pre-purchased the game through PSN in Europe. It didn’t take long for some to start posting the files, which mainly consist of the game’s soundtrack.

According to Rockstar Informer, the main theme of the game was posted online through YouTube, and was promptly taken down by Take-Two.

Over on Reddit, users have started compiling the entire soundtrack, which you can have a look at through the link if you like. We won’t post it here.

The data files, as noted above, were reportedly being made available to PS3 users so the launch download won’t take forever and a day. Those who play games on PC are used to such courtesies from developers, and this has also been the case with select games through PSN in the past as well – so it’s nothing new. However, we don’t have any confirmation of this.

If the game is indeed a 18GB download as shown on the GTAforums, then it’s no wonder Rockstar made some of the files available early.

Anyway, if you want to be spoiled to the soundtrack, hit up the links and have a go.

Grand Theft Auto 5 hits PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 17 while GTA Online launches October 1.

    Piracy, modders breaking law and others that want to compromise someones hard work, don’t deserve coverage in my opinion. They need to be left out like the trolls under the bridge and hope that when no one cares about those thing they’ll stop doing it.

    ^ I believe its 2 disc’s & needs an install on the 360.

    #4 the problem isn’t the installation, it’s the disk swapping

    even if you installed all 4 (in LA NOIRE’s complete edition)

    the game still demanded you to swap disks because it’s a disk DRM thingy the xbox has

    annoying as fuck,but manageable

    my friend’s LA NOIRE on PS3 worked like a dying bitch until they patched the game several times

    so lets hope this won’t happen with GTA V

    on the 360 – 2 discs – 8 gb installation required i guess more for GTA online. 360s with 4GB need to get extra storage via USB drive or external HDD.

    360 version is two discts, 1 install and 1 for being permanently in the drive. 360 version just uses another form of compression, so it’s slighter smaller.

    #7 oh cool

    much like halo 4, still… i’m done paying for gold

    microsoft can go choke on their own policies and kinect

    poorstation network is kinda crap sure, but to be honest
    Peer2Peer games work the same way

    no difference what so ever, so paying for gold is pointless (i don’t use party chat anyway)

    We know its true because Rockstar already said that the 360 version is 2 disc one for installing and one for playing and the PS3 version will require an 8GB install.

    @5 – Rockstar Confirmed no disc swapping on the 360, but there is a mandatory 8GB install.

    You missed a step VG247. The Cutscene audio was also leaked and is certainly not fake. Unless you consider the 3 hours of weazel news someone listened to detailing the heists fake.

    Gtaforums made a “spoiler” section last night and deleted it early this morning for reasons they aren’t yet sharing.

    @13 Nope. Didn’t “miss” any step. Links are there if you want any information pertaining to it – I put as little information in this post as possible intentionally because I personally do not consider any game file leaks “news” (as it happens all day, everyday) if I didn’t post it, certain sectors of the collective would complain.

    @15 That is very definitely a fake, made with artwork that has been available on the web for some time.

    I think it was leaked, SCEE just realsed an official statement. For now it’s just a Europe thing, but SCEE should’ve knew better.

    But we still don’t know how much was leaked, these hackers are fucking assholes. Now Sony is probably going to get rid of that whole pre-load digital thing. :(

    @ 20

    That video above came from here:

    which is a part of 50 more clips extracted from GTA V content (via PS3Iso which was now removed by mods). The good news? They are just in-game commercials and snippets, so they aren’t major spoilers.

    Nobody has yet leaked the official gameplay for GTA V aside from the trailer we’ve seen last month.
