no way, this looks unbelieveable for an open world title on current gen

I know, I have a hard time believing it. Time will tell though, gametrailers did say it looked amazing on PS3
Septic  +   873d ago
I honestly thought it was running on PC, thinking there was no way it was console gameplay until I realised there is no PC version.

That really is insane. The visuals alone are outstanding. The scope of the game makes it even more insane. The attention to detail coupled with all that defies belief considering its current gen tech.

THEN, on top of all that, the switching between characters is done so seamlessly, it just doesn't make sense. THEN, think about all that and the open world nature of it and the multiplayer component of the game.

How is this even running on current gen tech??

Man, so many great games coming for the PS3, it will be hard to have a social life
brodychet  +   873d ago
I can't believe how great that looks.

That's what I call an improvement.

It's being built on PC hence the mouse controls at 4:28. All of the gameplay shown was not all on PS3. Any part that looks amazing is probably PC build that will be scaled down.
Kennytaur  +   873d ago
But will it have good fish AI?
PurpHerbison  +   872d ago
So I originally wasn't going to look... but you guys forced me and it looks exactly how you would expect a PS3 game to look at this current point in the gen. Not surprised one bit, but not to be confused. I am happy with what I did view.
1nsomniac  +   872d ago
@WrAiTh Sp3cTr3

Rockstar claim on their official site this entire trailer was real time entirely from PS3. There was clearly no mouse control especially not at 4:28 when you can clearly see the emulated controller lag from the analogue stick controlling the animated cursor. I don't know whether your post is supposed to be a well hidden attempt at sarcasm or if you really are that stupid!?

But it it looks great.

100% GOTY.. I just hope this game will be ported on Next-Gen
Valkyre  +   873d ago
^^ How about we play it first? It does look amazing, but there have been some amazing games this year already and it is not as easy as it looks like, to just go out and say 100% GOTY without even touching the controler...
Kanzes  +   873d ago
This is GTA and Rockstar we're talking about.. almost all GTA games got an awards (some of it are GOTY's) and a really high score (GTA IV got 99% metacritic)

And after watched the gameplay trailer, I already convinced, this will success and will be my GOTY this year

So far it's The Last of Us, but GTA5 looks like a strong contender to dethrone TLoU.


I don't care what no on says GTA 4 was not deserving of a 10/10 or 99 out of 100 on metacritic. Fans and journalist were sipping the next-gen kool-aid for that one. It's a good game, but it's definitely flawed.
strigoi814  +   873d ago
I think we just wait..for now maybe its gonna be a contender
dboyc310  +   873d ago
I can't see this executing the campaign more like The Last of Us. Serious the whole voice acting and acting between characters can't be match. However the city in this does look vividly beautiful. Seems like they learn a lot from what people didn't like in GTA IV
Mr-SellJack  +   873d ago
Gfx are good but not mind blowing,just cause 2,farcry3 are much better colin from ign during a preview said that the gfx are great but look a lot on the same lvl as gta4 aswell as it's nothing special
gobluesamg  +   872d ago
Just Cause 2. Are you F@#KING kidding me!?!
snipab8t  +   872d ago
GTA 4 was 100x as detailed and ai is much better with euphoria compared to JC2. Farcry 3 was pretty on consoles really but did not match the scope of GTA 5.
ps3_pwns  +   873d ago
Its the power of the ps3 did you not play the last of us :P.

Thanks for the shout out, tho. =)
nnodley  +   873d ago
Yeah it does look amazing. But could you imagine how much more amazing it would look if it was ported to X1 and PS4. AMAZEBALLS!!!
plaZeHD  +   872d ago
The visuals aren't really impressive in my opinion, but the detail good God no game can match it.
showtimefolks  +   872d ago
i don't know why people are surprised how great it looks, Its RS games, they take their time and figure out the best way to use the tech and utilize their engine

i thought for sure Last Of Us will be my GOTY but after watching the trailer, i am extremely looking forward to it and very impressed

will buy last of us again on ps4 and will be GTA5 again on ps4 if ts gets a next gen release

great year to be a gamer
raWfodog  +   872d ago
Agreed, RS takes time and pride with their development and don't try to pump out a new GTA every 1-2 years (at least since San Andreas). You can see the steady improvement between GTA:SA, GTAIV, and GTAV.
Gamer1982  +   872d ago
After TLOU are you surprised about the looks of this game? Saying that does it look as great as a game like that? I wouldn't say so.. Its looks decent but nothing better than what we have seen this generation. The main thing in this game seems to be content and a shed load of it.
iGamerZero24  +   872d ago
It be on PS3 cause it has 8 GB install and it looks a lot like a polished RDR IMO....I'm hopeful it was running on PS3.....

Time will tell
RedHawkX  +   872d ago
Thats the power of the ps3 working for us gamers. only expect the ps3 version to look this good.

I'm just saying considering she loves GTA lol

If she loves GTA why would you need to "get" her to play this game implying she wouldn't play it with out influence?

Are you going to chain her to the sofa and force her eyes open with matchsticks?

This is going to win some serious GOTY awards this year. Naughty Dog are going to have to take a back seat to Rockstar this year.

You're joking right? almost all GTA's games got an awards.. some of it are GOTY's.. I don't know the definition of your 'GOTY'.. But in some popular sites and the VGA, GTA franchise has won a numbers of GOTY and some awards
Mr-SellJack  +   873d ago
Ah shit can't believe I forgot rdr the masterpiece in 2010 but other than that 0.i mean as overall by critics,the gamecriticsawards and your claiming it as better than ND's TLOU?u must be kidding they made arguebly the best game ever that won most awards aswell as rockstar sam diego schools rockstat north

no actually I owned a ps2 and played the hell out of san andreas just pissed at people that love to overhype things and calling me a child?how immature ill make u a carrot if I ever see u.
Koyes  +   873d ago
The amount of sales Gta has makes your comment irrelevant. SA sold over 18 million units on the PS2 alone and Gta IV sold well over 22 million units . Also, the fact that you'll make him 'a carrot' suggests you are very immature and are probably very young.

Derekvinyard13  +   873d ago
Your wrong, last of us is great but when it comes down to two masterpiece games, what wins is the one that has more to offer. Last of us may have a 20 hour single player and good multiplayer, but you can't compare that to over 100 hours of gameplay. We have to wait and see. You can always delete your original comment cause you come off as ignorant, you fought with facts saying gta never won any awards
YodaCracker  +   872d ago
GTA IV and RDR both won countless GOTY awards, and GTA IV is still the highest rated game of this gen with a 98 on Metacritic.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   872d ago
@ biscuitlover

You mean like over hyping TLOU?

Game is good, but the story is extremely cliche.

I find myself just ducking and using the special hearing radar mode 90% of the time and extremely linear....etc.

Good game, not as great as the reviews are making it out to be. But good game non the less.

Sorry but TLOU is IMO over hyped. R* looks to have raised the bar and no doubt GTA V is going to win this years GOTY.
Mr-SellJack  +   873d ago
Hmm that means cod is the best game this year and will win GOTY,u all have handled with the mad cow,oh sales=quality now?Don't be mad bros that u can't handle the truth,GTA never won GOTY ever across all sites overall because it offers nothing's a gr8 franchise don't get me wrong and one. of the best.Again with the immature?ur playing a game that has no purpose except mindless violence and granting u fun how old are u to play games?shouldn't u be raising kids or have a job?u got owned,adults who play games and put it ahead of their priorities are immature ones.good day sir

MeatAbstract  +   873d ago
I'm getting this for PS3 but if it looks THAT good I will certainly microwave some crow and prepare to eat it.
Campy da Camper  +   873d ago
Agreed. I'm all for eating my hat if its true but that just looked too good. I'm thinking ps3 dev kit footage. Those draw distances and zero screen tearing are just too much for current tech. Hope I'm wrong though!

I think it's safe to say that this time Rockstar have taken the time to master PS3 development, instead of just producing a port.

.....................!!!! I'm done! First thing I'm doing is ripping this puppy to the HDD. Because it will be played very much!! I love Rockstar!! I never owned one bad game from them, ever!!
Sgt_Slaughter  +   873d ago
This...looks...AMAZING! I was sold on the game, but when I saw the GTA: Online teaser... my jaw dropped.

My only worry, though... how many disks for the 360 version?
MeatAbstract  +   873d ago
It's 2 discs. You use the first one to install to you HDD and the second is the one you'll use to play from then on. Rockstar did a Q&A and answered this.
Persistantthug  +   872d ago
What about if you have an XBOX 360 without a harddrive.....a baseline model?

I'm asking because I was always told that Microsoft did not allow games on the XBOX 360 that required an Install to play the single player.

Why are Microsoft breaking their certification requirement-policies?
seanpitt23  +   873d ago
It's confirmed as 2 discs for the 360 version

QuantumWake  +   873d ago
The Xbox 360 version ships on two discs. But you need to install Disc 1 so that you can play the game on Disc 2 without any need to switch the discs while playing.

Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 require an 8GB install.

EDIT: Wow I type slow! Beat me to it! Anyways, hope this helps! :)

This is where my filled up 20Gb, w/ 1.2Gb left, is my downfall... *facepalm*

USB drive confirmed for me.
QuantumWake  +   873d ago

You can go to places like Newegg or Amazon and buy a 250GB HDD for the Xbox 360 for about $50. Yes yes, MS rips you off with their HDD prices but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.

I pretty much had enough of my 20GB so I ended up upgraded. But, this is entirely your decision. USB works fine too.

Good luck! :)
RedHawkX  +   872d ago
so there is disc swapping thats pretty lame you must swap between disc one and disk 2 to get the install on there and then swap every time you accidently put in the wrong disk as well or if you delete the install. seems pretty lame to me thats why ill stick with the ps3 version. dont need all those extra steps and blueray disks are stronger so one of them x360 disks get scratched then you are screwed
xplo  +   873d ago
Two. One is a mandatory install, the other is the game disk.
MasterCornholio  +   873d ago
That means that the game wont work on the Arcade 360 right?

Edit: A friend of mine has one which is why im asking.

QuantumWake  +   873d ago

Last I checked the X360 Arcade came equipped with 512MB of internal memory. So no, I don't think it will work.

Tell your friend to get a HDD or a USB drive.

@Trenso1 You read it correctly, sir. GET INTO IT AND DEAL!!! I wasn't the biggest fan of GTA in general, so GTA4 was enough.

They disagreed with you because you're following not leading. If you want to get it on ps3 do it don't be a little sheep and get the 360 version because of you're peers. Considering they're promoting the ps3 version you'd have to be a sheep to pick the 360 version.
dcj0524  +   872d ago
Why did you get so many disagress? I'm a sony faboy since 1996 but alot of my friends play on the 360 too. I dont hate them for that. That's stupid.
GurlPleaseBye  +   872d ago
@I_Am_canadian_1989 sir, be seated. If it was solely just a single player game, then ps3 is my platform of choice. Since I started off this Gen with the 360, I developed friendships online that even transition to offline. These are real friends that I choose to continue my multiplayer experience with. I'm a sheep because I like to play with my friends? Guuuuurrrrl bye!

You telling me that since rockstar is promoting the ps3 as the go to system of choice, I'm a sheep for getting the Xbox version instead? So in your case, You're a sheep because you decided to get the ps3 version because rockstars preference? Child move out my way with that foolishness.

I have both systems, so I have options. And since I have options and spent my coins on both systems, I can choose How I plan to use them. I'm not upset by it. Why you so mad, boo? Tell me.

Can anyone confirm it was a store model ps3? Not a dev kit? I am reeeally hoping this is what the game will look like when I pop it in but come on, those draw distances and zero screen tearing with no drop in frame rate? How is that even possible with current tech?
