PlayStation gamers who own the 12gb PlayStation 3 model will soon have to upgrade their console’s storage to accommodate GTA Online, otherwise they will be limited to offline play only.
Rockstar warned players of GTA Online in a post on their support page saying
“ As the world of Grand Theft Auto Online continues to expand and evolve through ongoing updates, storage limitations of the PlayStation®3 12GB hardware will require owners to purchase additional storage to accommodate GTAV Title Updates after 1.16 (released on 8/19/14).
“All updates and content must remain installed on the system in order to maintain compatibility for all players within GTA Online.”
Players who choose not to upgrade their 12gb systems can continue to play the story mode of GTA V by ignoring future updates and not staying connected to Playstation Network.
“GTAV Story Mode will still be accessible by playing the game without being connected to PlayStation Network, and proceeding without additional updates,”
Latest update for GTA Online arrived last week alongside the San Andreas Flight School DLC which introduces a new area which features flying lessons, two new planes and a new helicopter.
So who is getting an upgrade?
