GTA V will be a tight squeeze for 12GB PS3 owners.

If you plan on playing GTA V on the 12GB PS3 the disk version will require a whopping 8GB mandatory instalation, It will just squeeze in as long as you plan on playing GTA V and nothing else and Rockstar keep the update sizes small. The information is in the link below on GTA V Q&A the Xbox 360 version will ship on two disk's also requiring 8GB mandatory instalation.

If you plan on upgrading your 12GB PS3 internal memory now would be a good time before GTA V releases, I reckon there will be a chunky update when GTA Online launches on the 1st of october.

No you don't get full 12GB free around 10% + is reserved so between 9GB to 9.5GB, I don't think GTA Online will require another full 8GB because the core world map and game mechanics will be there, but I reckon it'll be a chunky update pushing or exceeding a 12GB PS3's memory limit.

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

whenever i look in cex, it is awash with 100-200gb hds for 10-20 pounds. If you dont want to pay out for a 500/1tb thats potentially a cheap option.

I have always said, buying a 12Gb model is a false economy.

It's a better option than the 500GB model in my opinion you can upgrade the HDD yourself cheaper than the RRP of a 500GB model,plus there's a lot of reported issues with 500GB models fitted with stock Hitachi travelstar drives.

From the sound of it the main game will have just enough space, not sure how GTA Online is going to work for 12GB owners though. Maybe they'll end up having to put a hard drive in, plus for the updates as well depending on how big they are.

I get that it makes the loading times a lot faster than running from the disc but honestly, being stored in a Blu-ray Disc with 50GB's to use there wasn't any issue making it optional.

Anyway, 250GB HDD or more is pretty cheap nowadays.
