Just put the install disk in and it will ask you to install it, don't use the option on the dashboard. When the Install disk is done you can either;

1) just put the play disc in when the game tells you to and it will finish the installation (it has to do this, it doesn't mean it's installing the whole thing) and play or;

2) restart then put the play disk in and install that to a USB through the dashboard option and play from the USB.

I have one of the old Xbox Arcades with a 20GB hard drive and keep having problems with the disc being "unreadable". There's nothing wrong with the disc itself, it's a problem with older consoles. There isn't a proper fix but Xbox Support recommended this;

1. Delete all GTA 5 game data.

2. Clear system cache three times.

3. Delete marketplace data from storage system items.

4. Unplug console for three minutes.

5. Install disc 1.

6. Power off, do not insert disc 2.

7. Restart.

8. Install disc 2.

9. Play. (Hopefully.)

Same with 'Coming Soon'. I want to know what games are coming before Christmas so I can prepare my wallet for the Steam sale, instead there's a weeks worth. Who is that useful for?

So did I but apparently I insulted one of those people. Don't remember what I said and I once again can't comment despite not insulting anybody so who knows. Since my moderation history in my profile is empty I'm going to twitter to try to find out from the CM which comment got me banned.


Edit: Actually I can post to articles, just not videos (e.g. the new Point video).

Sorry for the double post but it seems that some people were banned during that whole abusive period over the GTA review, I think they banned anyone who was replying to those comments as well as the ones making them. I defended her and don't remember swearing at anyone so if you commented on that review and can't comment anymore it's worth PMing on of the community managers.

It happens to most of us sometimes, it'll go away on its own after a few days.

They haven't made the changes yet, unless you're referring to some old update.

Still not working for me, tried the new Point video and the GTA overtaking CoD Blops article.

In case anyone else comes across this thread, downgrading or disabling Vsync is a more effective way of increasing FPS. A 670 should be able to run everything on maximum including 4xSSAA and TressFX with Vsync set to double buffering instead of triple. If it's still too low for you just disable Vsync entirely, this game doesn't suffer from tearing.

Wow, I'm really looking forward to the invention of the time machine so I can go back and buy this game.
