GTA V Graphics: Too Realistic For Current-Gen Only?

Techtorial: While Rockstar Games already confirmed GTA V will debut on Xbox 360 and PS3, questions still linger if the game would only be contained on current-gen consoles. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

No one said it was current generation exclusive and since it's being released in September, it's not a stretch to imagine it being developed for the PS4 & Xbox Durango/720/Infinite.

I would buy GTA5 for PS4 later on again 100%, and play it again from 0%, I know most of GTA fans would... they have to make PS4 version... we all know that ps3 nowdays cant hold latest graphics.. and I would be glad to buy and upgraded version of the game later... I think gta6 will be after some 4 or 5 years... wow... next gen consoles just cant live without a gta game for so long... :) just like witout GT series.. and that GT6 on ps3 rumor...

I've wondered this since first screenshots surfaced. Bullshots can only accomplish so much. I think all the shots of GTA V are from nect-gen consoles, just like AC4. Guess I'll find out soon. Can't wait.

No, they're certainly from this gen. Just look at the anti-aliasing in some screens. There is none lol Plus, Rockstar already confirmed that all screens are from current-gen consoles.

Remember when the L.A. Noire trailers came out and how many people said the game wouldn't look as good as the trailers when it came out? Then when it released they were proven wrong. If there's one company that doesn't provide bullshots, it's Rockstar.
MonkeyNinja  +   1019d ago
Good point, didn't consider that. If these really are from current-gen, I'm extremely impressed.

Not too sure about R* not making bullshots though. Sounds too good to be true. I'd have to see proof to believe that.
xplo  +   1019d ago
Uh, Rockstar has provided bullshots before: Vice City.

And even if these aren't technically bullshots because they're rendered in the game engine, they're using effects and camera angles to pretty them up that we might never see in the actual game.

Everything from the Epsilon screensaver looks current gen to me, BTW. Look at the textures and the geometry. The water is nice, but game water has been looking good for quite a while now.

@xplo

You're using camera angles as an example to try and prove Rockstar has provided bullshots? Please. They don't use special effects either. Like I said, Rockstar is one of the FEW companies that don't release bullshots for their games.

Have to admit, this is the first time I remember there being multiple games releasing on both current and next-gen systems. AC4, Watchdogs, GTA V (most likely), and others are promising to appear on PS3/360 as well as the next consoles.

Man, there's some money being made in the game industry these days.

Its not a fair comparison. GTA5 is a i8th generation game with better dev. tools. It will be 3-4 years until we see the full power of nextgen console when better dev. tools becomes available.

i think this title is far to big to deny the next gen and it's graphical benefits. First day buy on ps4.
imahustla19  +   1019d ago
this game will definitely go next gen. look at games for the 360 now, there already on multiple discs.putting a game like this on 360 would require a disc for each city.(not literally...sorta)im even wondering if they fit it all on 1 blu-ray for ps3.just think this could be the first 2 disc ps3 game lol.
LAWSON72  +   1019d ago
I just want a pc version because this game will be so limited on consoles
TheSuperior  +   1018d ago
I think it might ge pushed to next gen also but its questionable. The graphics are amazing either way lol
mochachino  +   1015d ago
I know a PS4/720 version obviously wouldn't really use the hardware potential given that it was designed for current-gen, but even a 1080p 60FPS version of GTA5 on PS4 would make me buy it.

If they had a PC version it would have been easy to port it to next-gen consoles. Here's hoping.
