GTAV: PS3 / PS4 comparison

GTAV: PS3 / PS4 comparison

Rockstar is finally showing more of the current gen version Grand Theft Auto V, 2 videos in as many days! This time we get a direct comparison of the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game, in order to appreciate the rather remarkable work done by the developers.

I showed this video to my niece yesterday and she was blown away. GTA V already looked superb on X360 and PS3 - specially the water and lighting, but this just takes the cake.

Rockstar went over every detail of the game and upped everything they could, for example: "New-generation GTA V, however, has three times the light sources than GTA V on PS3 and Xbox 360."

Cannot wait to see how amazing the water will look like on PS4 and XBO. Hope you guys do some videos of at sea when it's on a storm and some of the pool in Franklin's 2nd house by daylight.

BlimBlim, I just want to let you know that I respect this site. I always come here for the best quality videos. Keep it up guys. Greetings from The Netherlands.

OT: the difference is MASSIVE. How can I not double dip on this, it looks like a remake with the new first-person view. Crazy.

Looking forward to the PC version, shame we have to wait an extra two months just to avoid embarrassing the console versions :(

I'm 100% sure that's not why we have to wait.

Can't wait for Rockstar to go next gen only, its going to be nuts. Fingers crossed for a new Red Dead fully next gen!

Well based on Rockstar's history it's not because they want to spend extra time optimising the PC version and adding PC exclusive features ;)

...and based on their history it's not because the PC version will "embarrass" the console versions. They most likely need more time to finish the PC version, which is the lowest priority, because it will sell the worst.

It's the version I'm getting, but let's be rational, huh? If releasing it on the same day were actually dangerous, we'd be seeing many more PC delays.

What a rude thing to say gaming wise. Plus, if anything would be embarrassed, would be the guys who worked on this upgrade wallets.

Anyway, loved the vídeo. This "next gen" version looks amazing regardless the platform.

I don't see why/how it's fanboyism.

1. I own a PS3 and own GTA5 on PS3.
2. I own a PS4.
3. I'm irked at the unnecessary delay of the PC version.

The way a lot of studios are treating the PC gaming community of late seems to be from some kind of fear of resolution/FPS "gate" so they keep very quiet about the PC version, hide the system specs of PC versions until as late as possible (Ubisoft), delay as much as possible showing footage of PC versions of games running at ultra settings etc. etc.

And it is not only in the PC space. Since third party exclusives have gone out the window, co-marketing means that only one version of game is generally shown or talked about. I don't really like the trend to be honest. I can understand they don't want to show people are getting a 'lesser' product, but I would prefer vids from all versions.

Agree 100%, I found it really annoying how Fifa has been advertised of late for example, because EA made a deal with MS it's as if the PS4/PC version doesn't exist!

It's not personal, it's just business.

Of course, it feels personal though sometimes when you're waiting for news/footage/release! :)

Sacré bleu! Looking pretty nice

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (47 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (50 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (53 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (56 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (57 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (58 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: generally yeah. i mean, MS need their next gears of war-level success, even if it just becomes an annualized addition to their usual games. but it would be something. (1 Hour ago)
