BestBuy have added three new screenshots to their GTA IV product page. hit the jump to see!
The graphics seem to be shaping up. Hopefully the frame rate is silky smooth also.
"The graphics seem to be shaping up." LOL!, no Rockstar is just getting better at carefully positioning and carefully confining their screenshots to cover up the last gen graphics. GTA4 has been ruined by the 7GB Xbox 360 disc format and lack of standard harddrive. Rockstar is being forced by the POS 360 to gimp GTA4 into a game with 1.5GB LESS space than last gen. The pathetic 7GB 360 DVD drive will mean: * Massive amounts of texture/material replication all over the place * A world complexity/size smaller than last gen's PS2/XBox GTA games PC and PS3 owners could be about to get a real next gen GTA game with 20+GBs of city/graphics data. And Rockstar could have come out with a gimped down to 360 level version of GTA4 months later and not ruined the game for everyone. But that 50 million dollars for a couple of extra missions has ensured Microsoft and its POS console has ruined another next gen game. GTA fans are going to have to wait for GTA5 running only on PCs and PS3s for a real next gen GTA experience. Thank you Microsoft! Gimping next gen for gamers on all platforms.
u need to calm down, i think it was the PS2 that held the xbox back last gem..... so, easy does it
@Dashmoney101 PS2: 8.5GB DVD disc format Xbox: 8.5GB DVD disc fomat Ratio of game data/graphics data: 1 to 1 PS3: 25GB BluRay disc format 360: 7GB DVD disc format Ratio of game data/graphics data: 3.6 to 1 The POS Xbox 360 is the only console EVER to have shipped with LESS disc space than a previous gen. The Xbox 360 has both delayed and ruined GTA4. Rockstar BEGGED Microsoft to let them require a harddrive and Microsoft refused and Rockstar then had to delay the game six months to deal with the nightmare that is the 7GB harddriveless and graphically weak 360. Ain't it great having Microsoft's incompetent asses in the console market?
br can also hold 50 gigs, and they are working on 100gig disks @ below, thats because thats how much a dvd9 disk holds, and yes xbox360 uses dvd9, they do not use their own format. and what was ur point anyway
i mean, i saw, that most x360 games images are around 7GB. But can you actually prove, that xbox and PS2 had aroound 8.5GB and not 7GB? Though, of`course it`s just 1,5GB... Call of Duty 4 -6.35GB Halo 3 -6.14GB Bioshock -6.05GB Gears of War -6.27GB PES 8 -6.46GB Ace Combat 6 -6.89GB Eternal Sonata -6.47 Blue Dragon -6.50GB -6.53GB -6.49GB Madden 08 -6.21GB Crackdown -6.58GB Splinter Cell Double Agent -6.15GB TES Oblivion -6.4GB TES Oblivion Shivering Isles -6.71GB
Yeah, DVD's holding them back in terms of technology and scope, but I'm sure GTA is still going to be a great game.
The less amount of space yu use on a disc, the less processing and loading that needs to be done. If yu fill a blue ray up with a disc full of content, yu can expect a lot of strain on the PS3 processor and disc drive. The idea in next Gen programming is the ability to stream content smoothly without frame rates drops due to processing issues. hence why games these days dont need a 25gig disc in order to make a good game. Pack a game worth of 25gigs of material would quickly kill a processor due to the amount of content it has to sift through in order to find one small chunks of information it needs to stream media to the screen. Big doesnt necessarily mean better, Sony went blue ray only for Movie playback, not for the space of video games. i said this once, and i'll say it again, go do some research on where next gen gaming is going and how they go about doing it. Its not disc space my friend, the less space they use, the smoother the processing. Please... Go read before yu start rambling about things yu have no clue about. Xcal2k3 XboxLiveRadio.com
my GOD i cant wait TIL april 29th
can't wait for this date. taking the day off from work
at first the graphics looked like poop, but i'm glad they're getting better and better before release
oh wow is getting better and better graphically
This is on Xbox 360. I want to see the PS3 version too.
Rockstar says both games look exactly the same so there is no need to worry. Seriouslt stop dissagreeing with facts. R* has already said that both games are the same.
since when has graphics been important in gta??? its gta dammit. my social life will be destroyed when it comes out, i still play san andreas from time to time
Im sure this will be a great game for ps3. 4/29 hurry up! Wow az disagree already? Jealous much fanboys?
damm disagrees whore this is n4g news 4 GAMERS not news 4 GIRLISHNESS stop ur hating
San Andreas has great graphics given last gen consoles. its not true that graphics doen't matter in GTA games.. and remember this is next gen gaming so the graphics/gen ratio should be as good as the last installment of GTA.
san andreas had crap graphics even for last gen just my opinion, remember the shoebox hands and feet
Still not sure which console I'm going to buy it for.
My anticipation level is amazingly high for this game.
The graphics have definitely improved. This will be a huge seller.
I don't think the graphics have improved, but regardless this is GTA....graphics do not matter in this case.
do i expect the same HELL NO but more than wat they have shown. im not that hyped for gta4 because i know wat im gona get when i pick it up on day one but i guess we will have to wait for the real next-gen gta with the next one.
That games shows how GTA4 could look. http://www.n4g.com/M/8/Imag... EDIT: mesh1, the 4th picture is from REALTIME demo. It`s real graphics running on PS3. http://www.youtube.com/watc... And that was shown 1 YEAR ago.
Yeah CrazzyMan, it's just a real shame The Getaway games are rubbish.
its been shown that the ps3 was the reason for the gt4 delayed crazyy man the getaway will never look like that dreambeyond
This game could be so much more, so much more. Thanks POS 360 for ruining everything.
.....f-ck off and die. Your a POS
This game will destroy the Wii once and for all.
ps3 this or 360 that? stay on topic. talk about the game not the consoles. nobody is getting paid for that. its getting old.
This is way off topic. I have both consoles and will probably get the game for both consoles. What I want to know is why on earth does the game have to be identical. It's clear that one console is more powerful than the other. So why not make the game much bigger on the PS3 and just take whatever we can get out of the Xbox 360.
Because that way M$ won't be so Pi55
Enough with the freaking rumors, screen shots, new ingame features, GAME OUT NOW
I'd be more worried about the PS3 being able to match the 360 version first.
ITS BEEN ALREADY confirmed the ps3 dalyed gt4 so plz trolls go back to ur mother
....so much better, wow, drastic improvement. Man i can feel the hype starting to build. And @ CeruleanSky, i take it you won't be buying it then, thats pretty f-ing sad if you ask me, your hating on one of, if not THE most anticipated game to date, and your saying its going to be rubbish because of the fact it is not exclusive to the PS3. I swear you post the same stuff every time on this site, get over it. Its fair enough you don't like the 360, ok people can live with that, but your like a cult fanatic, take a deep breath, and tell yourself, 'its only a videogames console.' wtf.
Looks the best its quite a good pic
gta is universal. so fanboys STFU, i cant wait for it to be released. when it gets released, both will be identi-f*ckin-cal. STFU fanboys
