''Grand Theft Auto V'' Looks To Max Out At a 720p Native Resolution Rather Than 1080p

It seems that Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V will support a maximum resolution of 720p when the title releases on current-gen consoles later this year. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Same xD.
I need to get a new TV on a year or so to be equiped good for the upcoming gen.
My current TV is a pos, lol.

Meh.. Playing a lot of DayZ, ARMA 2 and ARMA 3 the last year has really proved to me that even 1080p is horrible and grainy. I will be getting a 1440p monitor soon.
sourav93  +   238d ago
Pfft. You're so old fashioned. Why don't you get a 4K instead?

lol 1080p grainy? ..what??

1080 does look poor quality after playing 1440, same as 720 looks poor after playing 1080.

Once you get used to the increased quality its hard to go back!

As for 4K, its too expensive at the moment.

Go for 1600p

but yeh 1080p is like really getting OLD especially after seeing 1440p or 1600p

DayZ Arma 2 Arma 3

your Playlist is DAM GOOD as I play the same games. Total War Rome 2 is up next for me.
assdan  +   237d ago
Who the Hell thought this game would be in 1080p?
ATi_Elite  +   237d ago
Don't worry the PC version will be 1080p!!
r1sh12  +   237d ago
yea theres nothing wrong with 720p.
Anyone know what sort of FPS it will be running at?
I am hoping 60 but I know its too much to ask for on the ps360
Hellsvacancy  +   238d ago
As long as it has a good frame rate i'll be happy
Prcko  +   238d ago
30 fps with no drops

Considering the scale and graphics, I'm shocked it's even doing 720p native on current gen. But hey, PS3 as lead platform has its perks.

What did you expect it to be 480p?
Enemy  +   238d ago
Pretty much, judging how bad huge multiplatform games like GTA must be compromised.
ginsunuva  +   237d ago
No, but sub-hd like cod and halo (~640)
wtopez  +   238d ago
Oh boy. Rockstar will soon fix that on PC though.
Prcko  +   238d ago
it's not big deal really
when you look from distance,especially from big tv screen, you don't see some huge difference
SmokeyMcBear  +   238d ago
well actually Rockstars release of GTA IV on PC was pretty bad. It needed months and months to patch, plus it won't release until at least 6 months after the console release. Your best bet for a good GTA game on PC is to wait a while after release until the modders clean it up and make it look magnificent.
pandehz  +   238d ago
They got Max Payne 3 right on PC though.

Flawless performance with proper DX11 support and a whole lotta options.

Maybe they can do a good pc version or maybe im being too optimistic.

Last of Us comes to mind.
MidnytRain  +   238d ago
The Last of Us had jaggies.
Cernunnos  +   238d ago
The Last of US is a masterpiece, and looks amazing to be running on such dated hardware, and yet it is the single biggest proof of how outdated they are. The low res and framerate really stands out in it, and you can really see how the devs have been fighting the hardware when making it.
dantesparda  +   238d ago
i dont think TLOU looks low res, it looks fine
DirtyPimp  +   238d ago
that game is so good
adorie  +   238d ago
There weren't many jaggies from what I seen.
I mainly saw problems with some textures, but not much there as well. The GPU in the PS3 isn't anything special. the split pool of ram is also a hinderance.
Naughty Dog did a remarkable job for what they had to work with.
This means EA needs to step up their game becauseI expect ND to come with graphical fidelity that

Lastly, it was a loose reference because it's the best looking game on consoles, currently. One of few 720p games that don't make my eyes explode. I'm used to 1080p with maxed out settings at frames higher than 40, on average. 60 in most cases.

errrrr.. did people actually think this game could be done on current gen consoles at 1080p.. I mean, people arent that naive are they. Considering even first part games rarely ran at 1080p, coupled with the scope and size of this game. Its a wonder they got it to 720p to be quite honest, not likes CODs and their sub HD resolution.
TheKingWilliamV  +   238d ago
720? Pre-Order cancelled...joking but who really gives a damn? 720 or not this game looks freaking AMAZING.
cunnilumpkin  +   238d ago
it won't be native 720p

wait and see

640 max
clmstr  +   238d ago
You recommend us to wait and see yet you're making your predictions based on nothing.
QuantumWake  +   238d ago
Well that should be pretty obvious considering they're still working on X360 and PS3. As long as the game doesn't have serious jaggies and frame-rate problems then we're good. But I've seen the screenshots and the game looks relatively clean. And I have faith Rockstar has made the game as smooth as possible.

Can't wait to play it! 25 more days! :D
jairusmonillas  +   238d ago
1080p is overrated.

it's just additional pixels, don't get super large tv and then demand for 1080p <_<
SmokeyMcBear  +   238d ago
my 58" TV demands 1080p!!!!!
Clunkyd  +   238d ago
you think that we all game on little 27 inch monitors?

I game on how videogames should be played, BIG SCREEN TVS!
MidnytRain  +   238d ago
In all seriousness, it really doesn't matter to a certain extent because it's how much of your field-of-view that makes a difference, which varies based on how far you're sitting from the screen. In other words, a bigger screen won't matter if you have to sit further away to view it properly. A 27-inch monitor isn't small when you're sitting 18 inches from it.

1080p honestly isnt good enough for even 27" monitors imo...
SchwoererBear  +   238d ago
my 32" vizio tv has excellent picture. I havent upgraded because many of the larger tv's I can afford don't have nearly the contrast ratios and all that jazz
cannon8800  +   238d ago

I myself have a relatively large plasma tv but give me a chance to explain why size doesn't always matter. My tv is 50 inches and I sit about six feet away from it. In my eyes it now doesn't look like it's 50 inches. It now resembles a 15 inch pc monitor because I'm so far away... my pc monitor in the other hand, is 27 inches(just like what you used for your comment) and since I'm so close to it (15-24 inches max) it resembles a 100-200 inch monitor because it takes up most of my field of view. My eyes are also perfectly fine because it's a really nice pc monitor. It's also 1080 and it's hard to see the pixels still. :D
sourav93  +   238d ago
Hey! I game on a 27" TV in my room with my PS3 and PC plugged into it. When I play something 720p vs 1080p, trust me, the difference is definitely very noticeable. Though the gap does get smaller with 1600x900.

Thanks for holding back gaming , current gen consoles
SmokeyMcBear  +   238d ago

cLiCK_sLiCK9  +   238d ago
Console versions would have been an afterthought if PC gamers actually bought more games and had a larger market share. Truth is, pc gamers hold back pc gamers.
kydrice  +   238d ago
This is why it needs to come out on PC! So I can play it 1440p + mods = Even better game than what it was meant to be. Just look at GTA4 and all those Ironman mods and ENB mods.
SmokeyMcBear  +   238d ago
but how long after GTAIV released for consoles until you get that visual fidelity. Are you really willing to wait years after the game is released for it to look its best?
Eiffel  +   238d ago
Probably less than a week or two. ENB's are configurable and custom configs hit the scene pretty quickly after a game comes out. PC users have been familiar with the RAGE engine for half a decade now so this won't be a problem in the least Smokes. It'll no doubt be one of the first modifications available next to retextures.

Part of being a gamer is having patience. Whenever a game comes out for another platform should be irrelevant to someone whom it doesn't concern. Some would rather play a game at it's peak quality than settle for sub-hd resolution with jaggies and low res textures at the same price. Can't knock someone for having a sense of quality.

Eiffel. That's why there are so many mods for Max Payne 3 right?

If this game is anything like Max Payne 3 (and I think it will be), it's going to be very hard to modify.
Eiffel  +   238d ago

Pray tell why do you think it will be hard to modify when it's the same engine with improved rendering. Not every game is modded to equal levels as others, and it's a point of popularity, interest, and replay value. What could a modder get out of modding a linear game like Max Payne 3? The multiplayer community went bust less than three months after release, there was no appeal there. Every GTA in the series has had a modding community for good reason as an open world title with limitless replay value. V will be no different.

Im willing to wait, simply because I don't own any consoles at the moment.

GTA5 might not be all that anyway, they need to regain my trust after releasing the boring game 4 turned out to be.

Someone expected 1080 for GTAV ?
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   238d ago
Rockstar are some amazing devs (also incredibly lucky to have the budgets they do)

But, the fact they have an OPEN WORLD GAME that's not only open, but really really damn BIG. Not only having some crazy good graphics, it also runs at a crisp 720P?

Lol, Wow. COD runs at sub HD and is 1/16 the size probably.

That the best they can do? It's going to be terrible; no good game runs in 720p: for example: Uncharted 2, Bioshock Infinite, Mass Effect 2

thelaughingwiseman  +   237d ago
It was just an expression of inconsolable nerd rage. Reason goes out the window when they hear something detrimental to their gaming experience (i.e. Mass Effect 3's ending, X-box's policies).

And my name is what it is, nothing wise about anyone, but there are people who can laugh. Now, a person who knows he is not wise, but can enjoy life; wouldn't you consider him wise after all?
PurpHerbison  +   237d ago
1080p would make the PS3 or 360 explode.
LoveSpuds  +   237d ago
What a non story, who honestly expected 1080P?

I wouldn't be surprised if we can pick up a 1080P version for our PS4/XB1 in 8 months to a year's time though.
tigertron  +   237d ago
Damn it Rockstar should have made this 1080p/60fps! /s
