According to users across the PlayStation Network in Europe, the PSN version of Grand Theft Auto 5 is facing problems. Namely texture/geometry pop-in that occurs in the Xbox 360 dual disc installed version – namely with some plants around the baywatch house, a fence at the pier – along with some aliasing issues. For those who don’t know, the same issues occur if you install both discs rather than just the “Install” disc for GTA 5 (which Rockstar has stated will lead to reduced performance).

Users on PSN aren’t happy about it either.
Grand Theft Auto 5 released for PS3 and Xbox 360 today, with the PSN version in Europe being pre-loaded for gamers to download on the 16th. However, it would be safer to go with the PS3 retail copy at this rate – and most importantly, avoid installing both discs on the Xbox 360.
