GTAV PS3 to PS4 Comparison Video & New IGN Feature Interview

Posted on November 5 2014, 2:32pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC has given us the chance to harness the power of these platforms to improve every aspect of the game. In addition to the all-new First Person Mode revealed yesterday, this means big technical changes like increasing the overall resolution and more than doubling the draw distance, as well as replacing every texture in the game and much more.

To see just how far the game has come in its transition to these new versions, check out the PS3 to PS4 Comparison video above. And be sure to head over to IGN today for more details and an exclusive interview that explains many of the key upgrades and the challenge of creating these new, enhanced versions of GTAV:

"As good-looking as GTA V is on PS3 and Xbox 360, and as alive as it feels, this is something else entirely. This isn’t GTA peeking its head into the new generation; this is GTA kicking down the door and cartwheeling directly into the epicentre of the party, much to the envy of those who just spent the last 12 months warming up over by the crackers and dip. It’s beautiful, it’s denser than ever, and I’ve barely scratched the surface. This is GTA V on a current generation console; the PS4, to be specific. This is not simply GTA V upscaled; that much is already clear. This is GTA V upgraded, on every level."

            I remember the First gta v promo video. Where there was a save hanging under a helicopter. Where the f**k is that Bit. And do a dlc for a few bucks that includes the collectors edition vehicles and weapons. And maybe one with slight better graphics. Tank you. Maybe the First patriot h1 based. That would be cool also. For the rest i love the game ever since it Came out. Never stop playing. I hope the next one allows you to steal trains again. And i mis the Hollywood strip. Like in San Andreas. And the possibility to modify every car. Mis the special paintjobs with flames and stuff. And the hydraulics

              I guess you guys at rockstar are going to drop updating gta for us ps3 and xbox 360 people who have been with you longer than they have. that because we haven't purchased a ps4 or xbox 1 that we can't get all the neat stuff like cars weapons and first person mode. All we want is to feel liked too, like a older sibling to a younger sibling the younger will get more stuff. can you at least do that. think of how many people on those charts were us. now we get nothing. it would be a way to make more money in idea but you would have ticked off so many people be doing so that you make little money. only those caught up in the new being better than the old would purchase this and someone there must know that. but me personally. i'm keeping my ps3 until the psn cuts ps3 off of the online mode. thank you, and please update us too with neat stuff.

                @Titanic_Elvis77 hit the nail on the head. Bothers me they even put the add for the update in the loading screen for us.

                @Titanic_Elvis77 I feel the same. Next gen consoles are £100 more than last gen. It'll be a matter of a couple of years before they start charging £500 for consoles. It's too much for a gaming experience. I used all my pocket and christmas money to pay for my PS3 a few years ago, I won't be getting rid of it anytime soon. Us last gens can wave goodbye to seeing new updates because they're too interested in next gen players now. We don't even get new songs. We're the forgotten whilst 12 year old kids have mummy and daddy buy them next gens.

                @Hannxm i know but they dint do it on purpuse its the money rockstar makes for peaple byeing next gen thats why they made it better because they put prices higher

                @natekilla9 Not just because of the money it was because they could do so much more with the new consoles as they could handle a lot more.

                      Rockstar basically did this so you can all go ahead and spend more money buying the game and the ps4 this black Friday , cybermonday and Xmas.. I'm no longer a fan and I'm going to stop playing for some time, I hope the hackers now move on to ps4!!

                                @24Stzy the ps4 is a NEXT GEN Console which means the system will have better high end graphics driver somthing that the ps3 doesnt have tho the grapics are pretty good on the ps3 system

                              That makes me mad. Rockstar promised so much to all of us in Xbox 360 and PS3 and we didn't get much of it at all. No heists, no casino which I really wanted, no better graphics for us... Instead of working on what they promised they were working on stupid stuff they never promised. I hate it. I'm no longer a fan.
