GTAIV to run at 30 FPS on PS3 and 360; Looking Identical on Both Systems and More - 1UP Yours 02/29/09

A 1UP Yours on Leap Day is like a free show, or something. The regular four discuss GTA IV and confirms that the game will run at a solid 30FPS on both the Xbox 360 and PS3. According to them, both version of the game look identical however, the PS3 version is a little behind in development but as it stands now, it will be launching along side the Xbox 360 version. Also Some information Lost Odyssey's annoying save system, Frontlines, God of War: Chains of Olympus, and many more. (Grand Theft Auto IV, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Sounds like, whatever R* has done with the multiplayer aspect of the game is sure to blow gamers away. I seriously cannot wait. Also good to see the PS3 version up and running. Seeing as how I only have a PS3 now (my 360 died), this is certainly good news for me.

EDIT: Also anyone that thought this game would run at 60fps isn't thinking realistically. I mean it could be done if it was a first party game aimed at a particular game system but it aint so 30 is definitely good news.

even if it was a first party game, 60fps would be extremely hard to pull off for an open world game as expansive as GTA. The older versions didnt always run steady at 30fps though so a constant framerate is all i require
pharmd  +   2376d ago
agree!
...sounds like a win-win for everyone...

get ur game on:P
Vash_The_Stampede  +   2376d ago
Maybe 60fps
Maybe.....just maybe in the future R* will have the new GTA's running at 60 fps. By then the new microsoft console will be out, but the PS3 will still be here kickin strong and running it with ease.

Launch 60gb upgraded to 320gb.

Launch 360 downgraded to........well you know.
jackdoe  +   2376d ago
For the incredible size of the world, I think a stable 30 fps is good. Also, even though some people *cough* PoG *cough* want to dispute it, the fact is that the PS3 version looks and runs great. Which is a plus. I don't know how many more shoddy ports I could take. But different sites have the PS3 build being anywhere from one (1up) to three weeks (spong) behind which is strange. My guess is one week, or else they wouldn't have shown the game to the press.

60fps is not impossible.
By the end of the gen I think we will see it. The series has advanced a lot from 3 to San Andreas.

Gears plays great at 30fps.
GTA4 will play at 30 fps.

so how come a game like COD4 that looks better than both those games run steady at 60 fps on both 360/ps3?

open world? nah..... just pay infinity ward for their game engine.
sarcastoid  +   2376d ago
@ 1.8
COD 4 is an extremely linear game for starters... IW has said that they do NOT like open world, sandbox style gameplay and that they want their games to be heavily scripted and linear. It's debatable whether it looks better than GoW but IMO it certainly does not. But you can't honestly imply that if Infinity Ward was doing GTA that it would be 60fps if they were to make it the same look and openness as Rockstar is making it. You're kidding yourself.
sonarus  +   2376d ago
everyone talks like gears of war has mind blowing graphics. Yes it did 2 YEARS AGO. There are so many games that will (and already have) surpass gears of war graphically and i think call of duty was one of them.

I was a big fan of gears of war 1 i just wish Epic didn't license the unreal engine to every tom d!ck and harry to play with and f up making countless numbers of ugly unreal engine games. It has essentially killed that unique look. No matter how many textures or pixel shaders or polygons they pack into gears 2 it prob won't be very impressive to me because i am tired of the look.

Hopefully i am wrong i really enjoyed that cover based game play in gears. Thats prob what i liked most about uncharted too. Its nice to slow it down sometimes and not run around getting shot like a buffoon.
Kr155  +   2376d ago
some of you make it sound like 60 fps is new to this generation. You do realize that there are PS1 games that run at 60 fps. the fact is it's a development decision, and it always has been. Run the game at 60fps, or make the game look better, render more detail and run it at 30 fps. and if you actually think that COD4 and GTA4 are comparable you really need to think about that. In COD4 the maps are small and claustrophobic. It allows for a higher level of detail and a fast frame rate because there really isn't much there. GTA4 is one enormous map and while the whole thing isn't rendered at once, alot more has to be rendered at any given time than COD4. Take a look at the screen shots of GTA4. look at all the people walking in the streets that not only have to be rendered but have AI too. look at how many buildings there are and how large they are. Look at how far away you can see. COD4 while certainly one of the best looking games around doesn't make the console do half the things that GTA4 does. It is likely that if R* continues to develop this franchise that thier goals are to make the game more expansive and get much more on the screen at once. Not increase the frame rate espesially with how cinimatic the game is. Games focused on competition, or racing games are better served by the faster frame rate thats just the way it is.

Right on Kr155. Comparing COD4's framerate and graphics makes as little sense as comparing the graphics of cars from Gran Turismo 5. COD4 would be 5 frames a second if it was trying to display the same amount of information that is in any moment of GTA 4.
Seraphim  +   2376d ago
@ KR155
bubble for you...

I was wondering how far I'd get in this before seeing some .... make some crap statement about frame rates. The modern gamer is so misinformed. Both are essential for gaming and both have their strong and weak points. It's up to the developer to create what kind of game they want and they take many factors into consideration when deciding 30 or 60 FPS. Now if only all these idiots [in general, not toward anyone directly] can get that through their thick and narrow minded skulls. What enrages me is all these so called "gamers" crying about Frames Per Second. Oh, I'm not buying *insert game* because the developers suck. They can't even run 60 FPS. I refuse to buy a game that isn't 60 FPS. This and the no online play card are my two pet peeves with gamers.

Fact of the matter is that I hope developers stop disclosing this kind of information. If another developer wants to know, fine, tell them. But there's no reason for the average gamer, or reviewer to care or know how many FPS a game runs. It's irrelevant to the game and quality of. Both are a necessity for gaming and that's the simple fact of the matter...

as i was reading all the posts,i knew it was to good for everyone to have a grownup conversation.as i started reading the first few post people talking about the game but when i got to Vash_The_Stampede he had to mess every thing up and post a fanboy article.
it's people like him that act childish and never make since.here's a kid that says the 360 want be around long and then the ps3 will beable to run at 60 fps,hell they both can run at 60fps sometime the 360 version of a game runs at 60fps and the ps3 version runs at 30fps.i bet if you put them side by side he want even beable to tell the difference,he's just a childish fanboy that had to bring up that his system is better then the other when he doesn't even know what's he's talking about.like one person said they had games running at 60 fps on some games last gen.
he act like a child that doesn't want anyone to play with his toys when he says things like he posted.he acts as if he will lose something if the 360 have the same games like the ps3 have and hopeing that the 360 fails.but he might as well shut up about it because the ps and xbox will be here to stay as long as people want to play video games,alreay micro and sony are working on their new systems already.
i wish that all this childish talking stops and all games were on all three systems and their isn't even any exclusive(it's almost there now).why do people like him that have a certain system hope that the other one fails or hope that a certain game will be on their system and not the other.they act as if it will hurt them or they think that the company that made their system will give them a free game or system,but they couldn't give a sh*t about him or any other fanboy all they want to do is sell systems and they will lie to do it,hell they already did.
i own a 360 and i wish that a certain game was on the 360 that's exclusive to the ps3(like kill zone)and i know that they have an exclusive game on the 360 that he wish he had on the ps3 but he will never admit it because he's childish and will never admit that the 360 have good games.
the truth is that they are both damn systems with good games.the developers already said that the 360 does dome things better then the ps3 and vice versa but he will still say it's not true.
i wish that people like him will stop acting childish and like they own the company that made their systems.why would a person like him wish that the syatem that he don't own fail because it want help him one damn bit all it will do is stop people from playing games and it want help him one bit.
he need to just enjoy the system and games he have instead of wishing that the other system fail because it doesn't concern him one damn bit and all the fan boys should just enjoy their systems and games and don't even worry about the other,unless you are like me and wish that everyone will enjoy their systems and wish that every one could enjoy all the games because every one deserve to enjoy them not just a person with a certain systems..i own a 360 and i admit that i don't like sony but i don't wish that the ps3 fails or break down on anyone and i'll even admit that the ps3 is a good system unlike people like him that will never admit that about the 360 hell he will never admit that the 360 have any good games because he acts childish and it's about time he grows up.

gogators  +   2376d ago
The 120 hz you speak of is the refresh rating for your tv,
and it's supposedly helps improve against blur in movies by clearing each frame more quickly. It won't help improve your game's picture by increasing the number of frames. Though my 81F 52 inch Samsung back lit LED LCD with 120 hz refresh rating looks very nice when just about any game is played on it.

Lol, last I checked Sony and Samsung LCDs are produced on the same line. They're essentially the same flipping thing from top to bottom. The only real thing that differentiates them is the case and name on them. All important features and lcd panels are the same... Matter of fact, the production line was a joint effort by Samsung and Sony. Probably the sole reason Samsung is in the position they're in right now in the LCD market. So for starters get educated on the subject. Secondly don't go talking crap like your Sammy is the bomb and all that over the Bravia. Especially when the words XBR4 come after it... :P Sony and Samsung = Same Quality from top to bottom. No question about it.

Both versions will be over 100 hours long . I seriously doubt whether there is anyone who would even finish the game.

April is a great month for me . GT5 P and GTA4 followed by Haze in May and the MEGA HITTER MGs4 in June.

I am so proud to be a ps3 owner. Not only would i be enjoying the 50 gig MGS4 BD game i would be watching BluRAY movies at 1080p.

Now call me an idiot but i think i made the right choice ...$89.99 or $99.00 for the limited edition....BARF

Burnout ran at 60 frames on ps3 and 30 frames on x360.

DMC4 occasinoally ran at 60 frames on ps3 and 30 frames on x360.

ps3 already has a lot of games which run at 1080p Native at 60 frames per second --examples being NGS,RR7 and the upcoming GT5. same cannot be said for x360.

Had GTA4 been ps3 exclusive then it would have run at 60 frames per second. Graphically GTA4 isnt impressive enough to bog down the frame rate
Pain  +   2376d ago
woo for 360's inferior~nes...
would be 60 fps and and just plain beter if xbox2's crappy old gen hardware wasnt holding this game back.

But hey atleast ill play multiplayer for FREE and be care free minded that my perrty PS3 wont RROD on me for bagging out a 5+ hour killing spree~

Yeah, I bet you weren't saying that last year about the PS3.

Gears of War 2, Halo Wars, Ninja Gaiden 2, Left 4 Dead, Banjo Kazooie 3, Splinter Cell 5, etc. Seems like a not so inferior line-up to me.

I won't say that MGS4, LBP, KZ2, RFOM2 are not some heavy hitters but it's the PS3's second year and just like the 360 in it's second year of course big games are going to come out. Considering Uncharted was the last exclusive game to come out for the system it is about time.

Since I own both systems I will own them all! Minus LBP and Halo Wars.

@inyourMUm

you dont own a ps3.

SC:CONVICTION is on PC too with better graphics

LEFT 4 DEAD -- a mediocre looking game also on PC with b graphics

lol at Ninja Gaiden 2 ---what a shame ? is that even a game. Banjo Kajooi ---lol. The only game x360 has is GEARS 2 .

However both Kz2 and R2 will rape Gears 2 in worlwide sales. PS3 would have 2x/3x the userbase as x360 when those games are launched.

MGS4 is alone way bigger than all of those inferior x360 game lineup

I must admit that I were a bit afraid that the PS3 version would be plagued by the same problems as all those crapy ports made by EA.

I never understood why Valve would trust EA with Half-Life 2 - The Orange Box. Since I only own a PS3 and never played it on PC I decided to get the PS3 version.

Don't get me wrong, I still consider it a great game which for the most part looks stunningly, but there are still issues that has been left unresolved. On a AAA title like Half-life this seems almost criminal!

Kr155  +   2376d ago
no it wouldn't. if there were really any extra room to play R* would add detail and expand the game, environment, textures, AI. GTA will never be more than 30FPS because the goal is to cram more in not make it run faster. good to hear it runs slick though
baxter  +   2376d ago
@155 yes it would have
GTA4 doesnt have 100 things on screen so yes had it been made exclusively for ps3 then we would have seen 60 f . How can you run faster at 30 fps. Face it the game was downgraded for making it multiplat
#19.2 (Edited 2376d ago ) | Agree(4) | Disagree(1) | Report | Reply
Kr155  +   2376d ago
baxter thats not my point. My point is that if R* did have more power available to them and the game was exclusive then they would not have used that power to make 60FPS. ^0 frames per second has been around on consoles for a long time, they could have made this game 60 frames per second if they wanted too. Locking a game at 30FPS is a development decision. they can either do less graphically and make it faster. or do more and lock it in at 30fps. With this game rock star would have opted to do more rather than get a faster frame rate. Have you seen screen shots of this game? Tell you what, when you get this game goto times square and look down the street and tell me again there aren't hundreds of models being rendered at once not only rendered but moving and interacting with each other without even your imput. There is alot going on in this game thats why it doesn and never will run at 60 FPS.
InYourMom  +   2375d ago
Maybe you missed
all the news that the reason for all the delays in the game was due to PS3 problems. Be happy it's going to even be 30fps.
Kr155  +   2375d ago
SOME of the delays. Check the hand on of the game back before the original october release date. They all ran like crap and they were lal on the 360. it's not like the 360 didn't benefit from the extra dev time. be happy the game runs well on the 360 to.

-EvoAnubis-  +   2376d ago
As far as the DLC is concerned, I feel like this. The Shivering Isles pack for Oblivion cost $30. If R* follows a similar pricing structure, then the two episodic DLC packs for GTA4 will cost $60 together. Sixty bucks is a whole new game! I'm sure some will argue with me on this, but I'd much rather buy a whole new game than extensions to one I already own. Particularly in a year when I'm going to be seeing Fallout 3, Prototype, Resistance 2, Little Big Planet, Haze, Eight Days, and possibly even God of War 3.

And as good as those games are going to be and as much as I'm anticipating those, E3 hasn't happened yet, and I'm sure Sony has some cards in their hand that they haven't played yet.

what does that mean? it means the ps3 version isnt done but they dont give a sht and will ship it as-is...buggy, framerate drops, just like assasins creed which had problems due to it being rushed for ps3

nah
what makes the most sense is that they could release it on april 22nd for 360 and ps3 on the 29th, but instead they finish development on the 360 then catch up for one week on the ps3 version.

then they release both versions on the same day with the same amount of development behind each version

that what i think anyway

Shh!
Quit comparing Assassin's Creed to GTA IV.Theres a big a$$ difference between Rockstar and Ubisoft.Sell your PS3 and quit hating.Always talkin' sh!t about the PS3.What a shame.

Bah, I'm sure both systems will run the game the same for a franchise this big. There's no way Rockstar would upset Sony fans like that.

lol! im shure the companies that make multiplat games dont have a grudge on ps3.. but the development is what messes it up. the ps3s architecture is gonna be the same convoluted mess its been since launch and will always be for multiplats.. a huge open world game like GTA is no exeption.. anyone remember a similar game called assasins creed?

With the $$$ Rockstar is about to bring in
Don't count on them giving a fcuk about 'loyalty'

recent multiplats like DMC4, Burnout Paradise, and COD4 have shown similar performances on both console versions. the trend of buggy ps3 ports/versions need to break sometime and they're making progress on that.

I can't understand why
people expect devs to get a grasp on this new architecture so quickly. Look how long the PS2 has been out. Compare a launch title on it to SotC or God of War. No comparison. If they are still reaching new heights on the PS2 after all this time, why would they get to the top of the PS3 after just over a year when it is so much more complex? Give em time. All 3 systems will show new things as they finally start to get pushed to their limits.

I wonder if the PS3 version being behind as it always has been(caused the delay due to its inferior hardware) will they hold back the 360 version not adding more polish before release to match the PS3 version due to angry PS3 fanboys?, or will MSFT make Rockstar take advantage of the 360's hardware the best RS knows how to at this point?.

MSFT usually has a requirment for pushing quality with software I couldn't see them not being envolved with developement allowing RS to handi-capp the 360 version for PS3.
ikiru3385  +   2376d ago
for the sake of every gamer out there, R* will optimize both console versions.

Microsoft "usually has a requirement for pushing quality with software"? I guess you've never heard of vampire rain, bulletwitch, two worlds, perfect dark zero, turning point fall of liberty, and so on and so on? There are so many terrible 360 games I can't even remember them all. Yeah, good quality software requirement there.

OH BUT JIM
HOW CAN ANY DEVELOPER ON THE PLANET COMPETE WITH "EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 2017", THAT TITLE IS LEAPS AND BOUNDS BETTER THAN ANYTHING YOU WILL EVER SEE ON THE PS3.

BWAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA A

Even though it has 1/3 the library
PS3 has just as many crappy games. Again for those that still don't get it. Developers make the games, not the system. If it were all about the system, every single game would be on par with each other. Clearly, they are not. Some are great, some average, & some just plain suck. Always been that way, always will be that way. 1 last time. The movie doesn't suck because of the theatre, it sucks because of the director.

30fps is plenty for most games.

Even racing games are fine at 30fps(Dirt), heck crysis is smooth at 30fps.

Just enjoy the game, as long as it does not chug, it'll be sweet.

Power of Green is the biggest fanboy on this site (after the Mart that is).
InYourMom  +   2375d ago
NO
He is one of the biggest 360 supporters on this site. Nothing wrong with that. When you have a comment like #1 from MailMan, how in the hell do you say he is the biggest fanboy on this site??

I think I see your logic: Defend the PS3 vigorously and smack talk the 360 = Gamer Defend/Talk positive about the 360 and smack talk the PS3 = Fanboy.

Get off your high horse!
