lol

well I am still confident that this will be a great game, like all GTA games. I hope the city is big and you will have numerous possibilities to gain cash like breaking in banks, break into homes, etc etc

anybody know what the new release date is? cause it was due for release this november or october but well yeah, you know the story. :)

Wow, doesn't look that good =/

Pretty muddy textures, and ugly depth of field =(

Hopefully it'll look better on my telebox

I don't feel next gen ... eh sorry CURRENT gen .. from these pictures. They could have been taken from the Xbox version instead of the 360 version.

Looks great. Buildings look really nice. Gotta give it to Rockstar, they know how to make great looking realistic games without all the next-gen crapola. Just straight up art style. I could live without all the DOF, but they probably use it to cover up some of the low LOD from afar.

Xbox could never do this. I think some of you are spoiled from all those games that release bullshit screenshots. Halo 3, PGR2,3,4, Mass Effect, MotorStorm, UT3, Crysis, etc. etc. etc.

Atleast Rockstar gives us real screenshots that aren't downscaled from 9999x6666.

Just look at what developing for the PS2 all those years has costed this studio. Using under-powered hardware for so many years has caused these guys to not know what to do with a machine more capable of advanced graphic. This game hasn't even come close to the visuals of Saints Row, and that game was pratically a launch title. I smell another Halo3ish hype brewing. The devs are not going to go out of their way to give us a beautiful polished game with enhanced gameplay etc. It will be the same GTA with the name being its only selling point. After seeing Call of Duty4 recently, I can't express my anger towards Bungie for giving us the same game as before. It was clearly the unfinished Halo2 part of the game that didn't make it to the end of development due to crunch time. We've been had.....

Halo 3 was technically rather impressive, the action was often more hectic then in CoD4, the textures were MUCH more consistent in quality, and it had loads of pretty massive vista's. Also you have to admit, the water was pretty cool =p CoD4 has some shitty textures thrown in there were they can get away with it, which is in my opinion really cheap, takes away from the nice atmosphere when you come upon some bland flat ass textures, and other then a few exceptions typically there isn't a while lot of action going on and the visible battlefield is fairly small. I'm not saying Halo 3 is better looking necessarily, but it is a lot better then most people are able to understand. Their both impressive and awesome games.

Also, most of those images look blurred? I dunno..just looks that way. and I'd wait to see some screens showing like draw distance and such before I really make a judgement

Saints Row DOES NOT look better. The characters looked like plastic dolls and every single texture had that "wet look" from overusing bump mapping. The game also looked cartoony and had a horrible art style.

The shots look blurred because of Depth of Field. DOF looks a lot better in motion.

Complaining about such graphics in an open ended style of environment is just ridiculous.

That's like saying COD4 looks like a game on PS1. Rubbish statement.

I'm not sure why people actually make these types of comments. Are they just trying to spark debate? Are they bored? It's obvious that these blurry, muddy screenshots are still well beyond that of xbox quality. I mean take a few minutes to pop any GTA game into your 360...go ahead I'll wait.... Yeah thought so.

(...why do I feel the need to respond? Well, it's a slow day at the office.)

Anyone that says this game looks good, or defends it when people say it looks crap are obviously blind. STILLS of this game have always, and will continue to look absolutely ugly, theres no two ways about it.

It looks great in videos, so it evens out, just don't try and fool anyone by saying the screens look little better then San Andreas. Either way, its going to be kick arse and i cant effing wait.

I could care less about how it looks. To me, GTA has always been about how it plays.
Commented on 2007-12-28 21:55:31
The GTA3 look WAY worse, but taking a single shot of this game isn't too impressive, I agree. The scope of the game should more than take care of that though, so I'm not disappointed about the graphics.
Commented on 2007-12-28 22:53:27
just cause 360 looks better than this
Commented on 2007-12-28 23:03:56
Once you see it running on your ps3, just see how this is the best looking GTA-game ever. Want, but NOT for my 360.
Commented on 2007-12-28 23:54:08
it may not be visually jaw dropping like uncharted or something (although it is leaps and bounds above GTA san andreas, even in stills), but for me i havnt been this excited for a GTA since i first saw images of GTA3 on ps2. as long as it retains all the things that made GTA3 so good from a gameplay perspective then i'll be more then happy.

just today while playing mafia i was wondering how a dev could use the added power of 360/ps3 to improve the things that really bogged down the last gen games like pop in, the view distance, physics based objects on the streets etc etc and this game seems to do that. it has the graphical upgrade obviously, but instead of trying to make uncharted levels of detail which keep the old problems (saints row still had a lousy view distance and pop in etc) they've sorted out the core problems found in open world games instead, and for that im greatfull, even if it doesnt look like uncharted.
