Not surprising there isn't any comments in here yet the pro Sony gamingbolt articles get dozens of comments.

Glad to see xbox DVD9 isn't holding back the PS3 version and the Playstation RAM and GPU isn't holding back the 360 version .

The devs use PC to develop games and since there will be a PC version It's hard to see a PS3 version on par with PC/360 versions due to them being able to use more RAM.

11 disagrees http://n4g.com/news/1122359...

The gamingbolt article was repeating speculation about PS3 being the lead platform. I don't trust gamingbolt hense my comments in the GTA5 and PS3 sold 70 million articles.

Devs don't lead on the lowest common denominator platform at the end of any generation just for rep saving parity, It's too competitive with devs fighting for every sale(pushing quality at the cost of getting backlash from fans of the weakest console)

We will know how much the game has been held back due to consoles once the PC mods are out ;-)

GTA4 already looks better than GTA5 with mods. So yea there is no question both the kid boxes will be holding the game back.

No one cares about pc. We all know they can provide the best graphics.

PC is not just best graphics but faster loading times, longer draw distances, mods, more on screen at once. Also in a game like GTA, vehicles will stay in memory longer, more vehicles and people on screen, faster loading, better detail and the ability to be on a sky scraper and see all the people and cars on the street instead of them disappearing like on consoles.
Imalwaysright  +   1103d ago
If modders can achieve that level of graphical fidelity ( icenhancer) what makes you think that devs with a budget of millions cant achieve it? I doubt that consoles are holding back PCs. Devs just dont care or they think that there arent many PCs out there that can run something on that level wich would only hurt their sales.

PC gamers care about PC, and console gamers care about graphics even more than most PC gamers. when people get all platform wars they bring up graphics more than anything. 360 gamers claim better than ps3 multiplat games, ps3 best looking exclusive console games. But then PC gamers laugh at console fanboys arguing over the tiny difference between gaming on ps3 vs 360 as compared to PC.
bozebo  +   1103d ago
Do you really give a crap about graphics that much? It's GTA!!!!!!!

Also, so true about kevnb's comment above me lol. I don't have a fancy graphics card in my PC, it can run any game at a decent frame rate at my resolution though so I am sorted (and it was cheaper than a console, the rest of the hardware I already had/needed and is nowhere near top of the range either). I play fast paced or multiplayer games on minimum for elitist 100fps lol (an old habit from CS:S, it made a difference to your mouse input compared to 60fps).

GTAV won't have those draw distance issues, the engine is a lot better than the one for GTAIV. That said they will be better on the PC version, but they design out the problem and optimize the engine further every iteration. You could see buildings from extremely far away in IV on consoles.

Razmossis  +   1103d ago
So GTA V is being held back by the people that didn't finish GTA IV?

They didn't finish it because it was the same boring missions from start to finish, not because it was long!
San Andreas was a lot longer, and that's the sort of length I was hoping for!

I'm going to play this game to the death when it comes out, I don't want it to be over in 2 or 3 sessions :(
Dee_91  +   1103d ago
Yay now all the pc gamers can stop worrying and hop back on your elitist pedestal and compare your highly customizable PC with brand new hardware to 6 and 7 year old consoles.DAT Elitenessness lol

Just a fyi for the past decade or so gamers have been comparing console to console because they are both consoles :)
We all know PC have better graphics and performance but for some odd reason within the past year and a half its become "cool" to brag about it lol.
PC isnt a console so please stop comparing the 2.If you agree please help dead this whole movement in 2013

Yea thats true.I dont think gta iv was long at all.San andras on the other hand.It seemed like how long it took to be able to access san fierro that would be the average length of a normal game.But there are alot of side missions which is good.Hopefully its not like sleeping dogs or prob.. LA Noir where the side missions only make sense during the actual story

To hell with pc and its graphics. If the developers only developed for pc they would go out of business. All the top games this gen sale better on the consoles.
Temporary  +   1103d ago
Even though PC is easily the best platform in terms of just power, the utilization of that power is lackluster because all the most talented devs go to where the $ is, therein lies the issue.

Consoles will always be a more valuable cash cow for devs, and PC will never be taken seriously as a platform in comparison to M$ and Sony. PC in visuals looks a generation or 2 ahead of current consoles, but if your frame of reference is QUALITY games, the PC is way behind.

So calling the consoles "kidbox"es or saying theyre just toys for children etc. is actually pretty ignorant...considering theyre top of the food chain when it comes to consumers. Then comes handhelds, and PC is somewhere way at the end of the line.
d3nworth1  +   1103d ago
I swear you PC fanboy have the most retarded logic. Consoles do not hold back. If a dev wanted they could do all they wanted for they PC version and just leave out the parts that the consoles cant handle simple. Like they did for battlefield 3. PC piracy holds back PC. All that technology that goes into making graphics and physic engines cost money and with the ridiculously high piracy rate of the PC there's no guarantee devs would make a good profit. That why alot of game franchises like Crysis and Farcry are no longer PC exclusives. What I really dont get is that you PC fanboys brag about how cheap your games are and how steam is the greatest and yet your platform still has the high piracy rate. Explain that.

Actually having no lead platform is goog for all platforms...why? That means Rockstar has the chance to fully design the GTA 5 games on the maximum strength of each gaming system. Its a win win situation for all respective platform.

Maximum graphics and gameplay for 360, PS3 & PC. You will get the most value for your system of preference.

Imagine GTA 5 graphics rivaling Uncharted 3 graphics on PS3 ... that we gotta see!

The truth: the game is developed on PC and ported to both consoles.

They release the console versions first to sell the inferior versions with more profit.

I am starting to ask myself if I will be strong enough to resist buying a console version instead of waiting for the PC version.

chcolatesnw  +   1103d ago
if you'd have bothered to do a little more extensive research, you'd have seen that ps3 has 256mb for OS ans 256 for games. xbox has 512 and both OS and games use it at the same time. max a game can use on ps3 is 256, xbox is closer to 512. not to even mention the 10mb edram, which is used for resolution, texture, anti aliasing... etc, buffers. Dipshit.
neoMAXMLC  +   1103d ago

The irony of you calling him a dipshit when your comment is far more ignorant and less knowledgeable than DeadlyFire's... who was correct the first time.

The PS3 has 256MB of SYSTEM RAM and 256 of VIDEO RAM. Only around 30MB goes to the PS3's OS. Everything else is reserved for games. so yes, that's almost 512MB of total RAM. Almost the same as the 360's. And that 10MB of eDRAM? Hardly worth a damn considering most 720p games are too big to even fit in it.
yesmynameissumo  +   1103d ago
The PS3 OS is less than 30MB now as they've continually reduced its footprint with each major firmware revision. It amazes me RAM is even being argued.
badz149  +   1103d ago
lol @chcolatesnw
256MB reserved for OS? and to think that the measly 10MB edram makes any difference...lol how clueless you're about things but confident enough to state them as facts!

but calling anybody to voice their opinion dipshit is just wrong as it sounds very uncivilized! the same goes to you too, @DeadlyFire.
extermin8or  +   1103d ago

GraveLord  +   1103d ago
They are showing the PS3 version to the press, it means its the lead platform, and looks the best. Get over it.

There is no "lowest common denominator". Shipments are neck-in-neck between 360 and PS3 with both having shipped 70million.
vortis  +   1103d ago
"it means its the lead platform, and looks the best."

lol because a six year old console will look better than if they used the latest high-end PC, like every single company who had stage presentations at this year's E3?

Ummm, mmkay.
Bordel_1900  +   1101d ago

It is implicit that the PC version will be the best version. The PC version will annihilate and wipe the floor with the console version, specially when people start working with and making available super hi-res low-compression textures for the game.

Anyhow, the PC version running at 60-100 fps with full AA, AF, better Lighting, better Draw Distance and better Effects. All rendered in glorious 1080p or even higher res.

Compared to the console versions running maybe at max 30 frames/sec and rendered in 720p if even.

GTA IV ran better on X360 with higher res than the PS3 version, hopefully this time around the PS3 version will be as good or even better than its console counterpart.

And everyone assumed ps3 was lead because its the only footage being shown which would mean there's more progress on the ps3 version ,Ps3 is the hardest platform to develop on , ps3 port to 360 translates to better game on both platforms not vice versa this message is from Dan Houser himself admitting to past mistakes gtaIV and RDR

Shaman  +   1103d ago
Dan Houser said non of their games are ports. They have dedicated RAGE engineering team at San Diego for engine development, plus bunch of programmers at North that work on GTA games, they have no need to rush or port games.
bubblebeam  +   1103d ago
"Dan Houser said non of their games are ports."

That's sad. If that is true, they need to hire another team to do the PS3 version. By no means were GTA4 or RDR bad on PS3, it's just that RDR was worse in every possible sense on PS3 somehow.

Hopefully it turns out like LA Noire, as at least that showed that PS3 was the lead platform.
Shaman  +   1102d ago
There is a reason for that, believe me. RAGE is deferred rendering engine, its heavy on RAM and their games are heavy on RAM too. They have fat frame buffer where they store lighting and shading info. Higher the resolution, bigger frame buffer, more MBs needed. Adding 2xMSAA (or QAA) to the game AUTOMATICALLY gets frame buffer twice as big. Thats why they needed to lower the resolution down.

Since MP3 they added FXAA on console versions so PS3 is now native 720p because they dropped MSAA and freed up the memory.

LA Noire was made on different engine altogether, and it was PS3 exclusive from beginning. It was 360 port, I don't see a reason why should they port to 360 though? Why not developing them together with dedicated teams? Does PS3 deserve to be lead platform or something I've missed?

For what it's worth, GTA4 on 360s online was entirely ruined by modded lobbies, the PS3 version was not.

Also there wasn't much difference between the two, lower resolution on PS3 but better lighting / motion blur / performance.
JackBNimble  +   1103d ago
I've been playing GTA IV and RDR for years, I have never had any problems with either game.

Someone want to tell me what was so inferior about the PS3 versions. I am pretty sure that any grphical differences is so miniscule that you wouldn't even notice any difference in game play.

I also like the fact that GTA V will only be a single disc game for the PS3 unlike the 360 version.
A-Glorious-Dawn  +   1103d ago

GTAIV had a slightly higher framerate on xbox than the ps3 and slightly higher resolution.

But there was much more pop-in as a result, The ps3 version had lower resolution and framerate, but loaded textures and objects faster..

ChronoJoe  +   1103d ago
It's missing like 90 lines of resolution. It's actually pretty significant.

It benefits in lighting / filters particularly though.

360 version of GTAIV would be better if the modded lobbies didn't spoil the multiplayer. Overall I'd say the PS3 version is the one to go with for GTAIV.

RDR on 360 however is definitively better than the PS3 version. Again missing about 100 lines of resolution, but worst of all is the anti-aliasing. The 360 version looks sharp because it's using 2x msaa, but the PS3 version is using a blur filter... it's ugly, to say the least.

The framerate is also lower on the PS3 version of RDR, textures are lower resolution, and in many cases objects are missing (like grass density).

I think it's in Rockstar's best interest to make these games as equal as possible. And they must be sure that neither side gets screwed. It's such an important franchise and fanboys are fighting like parents in a custody battle.

Honestly, I think everyone is sick of all the "superior version" fanboy squabbling. It detracts from what's really important, the game itself.

The game looks great, even though it's made for 7 year old hardware. I will definitely buy both versions, just like I did last time. One to play with my PS3 friends and one to play with my Xbox 360 friends. And of course I eventually bought the PC version. Mods FTW!

Why are you people fighting about lead platform?

Who the hell cares and why would it matter?

GTA 5 will be awesome on all platforms.

I don't have a monster gaming PC so I can't play a game like GTAV well. If they make the PS3 playable then I will be extremely happy regardless on how the other versions turn out. Even if the 360 turns out to be the superior version at this point it doesn't make sense to buy one with the impending release of the PS4 and 720.

"There is no lead platform"
Translation: Wait for the PC version.

I still think they will bring a WiiU version out. it may not be at the same time as the ps3/360 versions but it will come. they supported the wii with manhunt 2, rockstar table tennis, also china town wars on DS so it wasnt like they made nothinbg on ninty consoles. If rockstar north doesnt do it I'm sure one of their other studio's will.

Define "lead platform" before arguing about it..

Black Ops II doesn't have a lead platform and look how shoddy that looks on PS3 compared to 360 (I own a PS3 before you say I am a 360 fan boy).

Everyone seems to say how the PS3 is harder to develop for, so to me if PS3 isn't given more resource and thus could be defined the 'lead platform', it will end up looking the worst.

I so agree.....

Sorry but this is good news? No lead platform means PS360 will both run fine same frame rate, same textures in all. And with a game this huge R* doesn't want to play favorite because if either the Xbox or PlayStation is gimped in anyway. Fanboys will riot all across the internet.

Not tryin to say PlayStation version of Black Ops is broken and that's ok, because its not. Its ridiculous they have loyal cod fans that spend 60$ a year to a game that barely works.

No, not R* they know whats at stake if they cater to one console. Internet rioting at its finest.

This is getting very interesting still can't wait till SPRING though for it to release. I'm just glad that R* gives the PS3 AND XBOX EQUAL IN GRAPHICS. just hope those idiot fan boys on blog web sites will try to at least try to compare video to video and CHANGE THEIR DAMN CONTRAST picture. and stop giving one system a higher or lower score JUST GIVE EM BOTH EQUAL SCORES
