GTA 5: Rockstar confirms the trailer used in-game footage, nothing pre-rendered

"A couple of days back Rockstar released the second trailer for next year's highly anticipated game: Grand Theft Auto 5. The trailer was full of action, car chases and much more. We did a full analysis of the trailer which you can check out over here. Given the amazing scale and view distance that the trailer displayed, some people disagreed that this was running on a current generation console i.e the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Some even thought that certain portions of the trailer were pre-rendered and was not in game footage." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Nothing news worthy really. Rockstar has always done this.

I would like to know the specific system it was running on.

Ps3 is the lead platform

Guess which fanboys are disagreeing!!
Awesome_Gamer  +   616d ago
Funny how people disagree with facts, i know it's not confirmed yet, but every single Rockstar game in the past has been shown on the 360 because that was the lead platform, now that V has been shown on a PS3, people still don't want to believe it's the lead platform, hypocrites.
Hydrolex  +   616d ago
if PS3 is the lead platform, why would they show the 360 version ? Think wise man

@Hydrolex : Stolen From BigStef :
Game Informer’s Editor Matt Bertz confirmed the demo they used to get all those magnificent screenshots from the game were ran using Playstation 3."

"There is no lead platform, they are developing the game at the same time for both PS3 and XBOX360"


There is no lead platform, deal with it. The people disliking aren't fanboys, they just know the truth
nope.. They said no lead platform. Same thing they did for max payne.

The article you guys are sourcing saying they have no lead platform has no ground to stand on. That Examiner article is written based on a forum post.

In the forum post the guy who wrote it also refuses to give a source so it's nothing more than a net rumor and Examiner really need to get their stuff together rather than tout forums as news.

Not that I am actually saying your wrong, just that your evidence is unfortunately useless thanks to Examiner writing such garbage.

That's a beautiful thing. Great for all gamers.
LOGICWINS  +   616d ago
^^Indeed. The fact that Rockstar is using the PS3 as the lead platform for GTAV says a lot about Rockstar's relationship with Sony in the future. We're entering a brave new world where devs are no longer held back by DVD9 format :)
kriauciuniux  +   616d ago
I hope the game looks as good in full scale as in those shortned pictues.
Muffins1223  +   616d ago
Damn,cant wait to see the pc version of this then.
greenpowerz  +   616d ago
People are disagreeing because rockstar hyped the PS3 version of GTA4 as being the best/lead showing the PS3 version first as a tactical move to lesson the fanatical PS3 fanboy army backlash due to the PS3 not being as capable with sandbox games design. PS3 fanboys alway make hay over high profile games only to be let down over and over again.

Why should game3rs believe a website's guess when the devs have tricked gamers before?

DVD9 doesn't matter if the PS3 doesn't have enough available RAM to keep up with the 360.

It was smart of the devs to continue to hype the PS3 version again, it's the only way to avoid Skyrim-like backlash. I hope they found a way around PS3's inferior GPU and weak RAM use.

@logicwins, games that stream from the optical drive will run smoother from the faster dvd speed as compared to the slow read speed of a ps3 blue ray drive. You get more space on blue ray but you trade off read speed.
unchartedxplorer  +   616d ago
Amazing. I cannot wait for this game.
Locksus  +   616d ago
Would've rather had the game on next-gen consoles. Would've probably been that much more awesome.

Still excited for the game!
DeadIIIRed  +   616d ago
Look at it this way, unless they go into another direction, the most feasible location for the first next gen GTA will be Vice City now.
Rumplebumpkin  +   616d ago
It's been 4 years since GTAIV, I don't think that I could possibly wait any longer.
unchartedxplorer  +   616d ago
Yeah a bit of a double edged sword that. I mean next gen consoles would be great in terms of performance but rockstar have a lot of experience with the current gen consoles. If they decide to have on the next gen consoles there wouldn't be a huge difference visually since they have no experience on the next gen consoles. Not only that but the game would also sell less because of the next gen's low install base.
Plus there is the extra good couple of months wait for the game again AND you have to buy the next gen console.
Overall moving GTA V to next gen consoles would be a bad idea.
FunAndGun  +   616d ago
I know the trailer was made with in-game footage, but I REALLY can't wait to see actual gameplay.
dragonrage00  +   616d ago
If GTA IV is any indication, sadly we will have to wait until the game comes out :(
Felonycarclub8  +   616d ago
I wonder how much money rockstar has put spent on making this game? I wish they would just tell us the release date, I can't wait to play this game.
claud3  +   616d ago
Rockstar have always used in game footage for trailers and all cutscenes were always in game from GTA 3 to GTA 4, this is how they do it. To show of the graphics and they never use alternative enhanceds graphics for cutscenes
-Gespenst-  +   616d ago
I'm just wondering if the screenshots were truly in game. I.e. if they were doctored or rendered on PC...

Too much deceit in the VG industry these days.
The_Tr0ll17  +   616d ago
Looked like crap so they should have used pre-rendered CGI.
Angrymorgan  +   616d ago

they're truly Masters of their craft.

dragonrage00  +   616d ago
who said anything about it being pre-rendered?
claud3  +   616d ago
Look they worked really hard on this and every game and respect them for what they have achieved so far

And i am not going to question the direction they have taken the GTA series

This is a new stage in the new generation of GTA titles and believe me. Next-gen is going to be a new direction for the GTA series.

If this three playable character works, then maybe this will work in a future title or they may do it one more time

And then maybe they could go back to one player character

Looks great. I mean GTA graphics have never looked crisp to me, but this is the best it has ever looked, and I can't wait to see the gameplay in motion.

A nice bonus that PS3 is the lead platform. Should provide the best outcome for both platforms.
josephayal  +   616d ago
Amazing job
StrawberryDiesel420  +   616d ago
One thing is for sure, the game will probably be more than 3 discs on the 360, while everyting will fit nicely on one PS3 blu ray disc with no screen tearing unlike its 360 counterpart.
turgore  +   616d ago
Full of screen tearing. ANother overhyped GTA game.
Megaton  +   615d ago
You could tell it wasn't running on the PC, either. It had no AF, so textures were blurred a few feet back.

"Given the amazing scale and draw distance that the trailer displayed, some people disagreed that this was running on a current generation console i.e the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Some even thought that certain portions of the trailer were pre-rendered and were not in-game footage."

No offence to those "people", but they really must be gaming deficient or the standard "casuals" in order to arrive to that conclusion.
Kennytaur  +   615d ago
It's probably in engine, yes. But running in real time on a PS3 or 360? No.
