If you're talking about the mandatory install then probably a few minutes. If you're talking about the optional install for Xbox then 15-30 minutes.

This right here.

 

Also if you're concerned about the optional install taking too long, just play the game for a while first, then install it and make a sandwich or something.

I heard its around 20 hours because rockstar put a special layer on the disc that means the lasers have to try extra hard to read the disc

It should be finished installing by the time GTA VI is released.


I recommend just getting the floppy disk for PC on the 17th.

GTAIV on PS3 takes me about 5+ minutes to install, and that's just like 4-5Gb.

I'm guessing 10 minutes at the most, but I am pretty sure Rockstar will have something creative up their sleeves while it installs, instead of just watching some sh*tty progress bar.

Until 2099... then we already got GTA 20 but no one could play it because everyone still waits until GTA V is installed. sh*t happens.

Personally I wouldn't give a damn since I'll be viewing the map with a cigarette and a coffee.

It only took my PS3 15 minutes to install GT5 which was like 4GB's then a full install of 8GB's. So I'm guessing close to the same amount of time. Either way I'll be smelling the new fresh smell the book has, checking out all the sh*t it comes with probably download the DLC it has first THEN install the game. Smoke a few bowls in the bong and by than the game will be ready to play. And that well be goodbye to life as we know it. I'll be playing at least 30 hours that first day it comes out.

I don't really mind. I'm downloading every little bit that will help make the game run faster/have less loading, so I can enjoy it to its full capacity.

I have no idea but imagine how the people who buy the digital copy will feel. If you dont get good download speeds good luck playing it on release. The file must be some kind of big lol :)

Could you be any more wrong? For games like this its more like tens of minutes....

I'll do the optional install anyway, I want the best experience possible, It's not like I'm missing out on much.

 

It's just the singleplayer and I've got all the stuff that comes with my SE to read and look at.

I apologize if this is a dumb question, but what exactly is the optional install?

So the game can run smoother, less load times etc, Xbox will make less noise due to the disc not spinning.
