GTA 5 has released in retail and digital formats for Xbox 360 and PS3, but why should you avoid downloading the game rather than buying the physical version? Digital Foundry explains exactly why.
After numerous complaints, Digital Foundry investigated and found that the GTA 5 digital edition from PSN is struggling with performance issues.
“Based on several tests, the game does struggle during the opening montage around Los Santos’ beaches. Driving around town shows up worse cases of the effect when compared to the physical copy – mainly during moments of peak action during the busiest spots in the game,” said Digital Foundry.
Digital Foundry also adds that there’s likely more performance issues they haven’t even encountered yet.
“These are just sampled highlights of the issues we found from the first 20 minutes of capturing the game, and there’s every chance they’ll continue to manifest over the course of the game.”
