Look near identical to me, good job R*.

from the source:

-Xbox 360 has slightly better vegetation details and smoother/more detailed shadows.
-Ps3 has slightly better distance texture lod.

The PS3 version looks better.
But that could just be something with the Xbox 360's TV being too bright.

PS3 is awesome. I mean look at this game. It could be next gen, just from looking. What an awesome system.
paul-p1988  +   311d ago
We would expect the PS3 version to be better, it was the lead console this time around.

That being said, they still have to ensure it works on the 360 (and looks almost the same) and thanks to the tiny space of DVD's compared to Blu-Rays we won't see many differences between the two.

Next-gen GTA however, where the optical medium is the same, is gonna be a massive improvement on everything i would guess.
NukaCola  +   311d ago
This shows that PS3 lead games can lead to excellent multiplats. Everyone is going to be in for a current platform next generation title. Rockstar again delivers!

I've been sick of the blatant fanboyism in the gaming (pseudo-)"journalism& quot ; industry since like 2007, but at this point, it's starting to get real silly.....but no less infuriating.

I mean why are these guys still out-right lying and telling us to not believe our eyes and our own experiences? Are people so easily brainwashed by anyone who calls themselves an "authority"?..... apparently, they are, because people have, and will continue to go around repeating this crap as though it's true. I thought people in general were sick of being lied to by authority and the media.

GTA4 and Skyrim are perfect examples......and not coincidentally the 2 biggest games hype-wise this gen. All the internet and media say is how much better both are on 360, meanwhile I have owned both versions of both games, and both border on being what I would call "broken" on 360, so many bugs and glitches it's rediculous, of which I would say I see NONE of on PS3. Almost every day, to this day, I hear co-workers and friends talk about all the glitches they ran into the previous night playing Skyrim 360. As much as I'd like to see backwards flying dragons and have my armor class randomly go down to 0 so I get one-shotted by a crab.....I can't say it ever happens to me, not even when the PS3 version was at it's worst.

So why does the internet and gaming :journalists" tell us the opposite? Is MS STILL paying loads of money to right a ship that's being raplaced in a couple months? Or does brand loyalty just run THAT deep in "journalists" that in most cases are supposed to be unbiased? Brands specific sites are one thing, I wouldn't expect OPM to review Halo. But when you're a site claiming to just be informing the gaming consumer to make the best possible choices, there should be consequences for purposefully dis-informing the consumer.

And now THIS pseudo-"journalist" is telling me that both versions of GTA5 look pretty much exactly the same with the only difference being the 360 version has better shadows and grass, yet the pictures provided when made full screen are pretty clearly showing the 360 version also having noticably lower quality textures (either that or they hadn't fully loaded up yet, either way it's a problem), and I think the lightling or something else maybe (I'm not a techie), whatever it is.....it's makking for an over-all more realistic look.

So.......Here we go again. The gaming media still using the mainstream media tactics of propaganda to help MicroSoft look to have a better product than they do in reality. Why? It's not like MS has earned or deserves the help anyway.

Sorry for the long rant....I tend to go on anyway......but this is an issue that's been festering within my head since like 2006......these horrible changes that took place in gaming media almost overnight. And For a little while there, I thought it was slowly changing back.....I'm disappointed that I was so very wrong.

Looks like darker shadows on PS3. I'm sure GTA4 had this issue too. Shadows were simply too dark sometimes but hopefully it won't be a problem this time around.
Death  +   311d ago
From the images the PS3 colors are too distinct and the shadows unnatural. Could be the settings of the tv used. The 360's "washed" out textures make it look more realistic. Both are great looking games. If you didn't have labels or side by sides you wouldn't know which is which.

They both look the same which means they both look fantastic.

One console doesn't have the edge over the other. Plus R* said both versions look the same, in which they do.

Seems like most of you just look at the PS3 version and automatically choose that platform, since its N4G favorite console in all.

You have to wear glasses or replace those you currently have.

Just look at that big wheel (on the first picture), and you'll notice on the PS3 version it is more detailed with cleanier and sharper rays.
Plus, the textures of the white wooden plank (left lower corner on the 2nd pic) are more detailed.
Overall, the contrast is better, shadows are better, reflection in the water is better, drawing distance is better...

Let's be real, everything is better on that PS3 version.
Death  +   311d ago
The textures on the planks are more defined on the PS3 version. That's not really a good thing. They should be more blended and not be so obvious.

Basically there is no difference. Even when you look closely, you just MIGHT see some MINOR pixels, but nothing you would actually notice during gameplay.

If anybody disagrees, he is a troll.
Benchm4rk  +   310d ago
Agreed man. Both have advantages over the other in different aspects. At the end of the day when you playing the missions are you really gonna drive past a palm tree at 100 km/h and notice the difference and wish you got the 360 version. Or are you gonna go stand on a roof and say those textures aren't as good as they could be I should of got the ps3 version. The differences are negligible

In that very same shot the wood planks on the 360 version look somewhat higher resolution than on the PS3 version. Also, can't you see in the other shots how much better the foliage is on the 360 version? It's all low res and blotchy on the PS3 version.

Face it, overall they look very close indeed. Rockstar did a great job. We don't need fanboys trying to convince themselves that their version is 0.1% better.

If you want a truly superior version, wait for the likely PC version.

You do know that streaming games are not the ideal way to play? It's not nearly as responsive as playing a game locally on you console.

You are in fact getting a video stream from a server running the game. When you click a button on your controller it will send that over the internet and to the server.

It then sends the result on the server back to you and something happens on the screen.

It requires a hefty broadband connection with good speed out an in. And even if you have a good ISP the video will be compressed.

It will not look like a game you insert in your PS3. Not even close.

I tested the Gaikai service many times when it was for PC. And I have tested the Onlive service.

It's nothing that is preferable to the alternative, not at all. Just saying...

GameSpawn  +   310d ago
DayZ,

I agree with you on waiting for a more professional comparison.

Screenshots are one thing (and these aren't even good screenshots). They say 1280x720, but all these screens look like poo on my computer. I want a full 1080P capture, even if it's upscaled by the system (hopefully upscaled by the system and not post-capture).

Also, I don't want screenshots. I want full motion video, because what really matters as far as differences in these games is how they are in motion.

Looking at the screengrabs the differences are so miniscule. Nitpicking at its finest.

In all honesty, who cares? I don't have a 360 (for my own reasons) so I got the PS3 version. I guess if you have both systems this might be more important to you then the circle of friends you have on each respective console (for any online components). It's simple own one system, get it for that system, own both buy it for the one you'll enjoy the most out of the game on.

Off-Topic:
There is only ONE game in history I EVER bought for multiple consoles and it was Soul Calibur II (PS2, NGC, & Xbox) and it was because (1) I got the last 2 at bargain bin prices, (2) each game had a unique character and (3) each had unique play styles due to different controller designs (I had VASTLY different character preferences because of this; Cervantes, Maxi, and Kilik respectively).

"It’s possible they could have had the game looking as good as Uncharted, but Rockstar decided to keep things mostly equal to keep console-loyal fans from both sides happy."

So PS3 owners get shafted out of a better version just to keep xbox 360 owners happy! Your testing PS owner loyalty by admitting that Rockstar!

Lets hope the same policy will not apply to PS4 versions in the future in comparison to xbonE versions!

It looks to me as Rockstar has already pushed these consoles to their limit.
Anymore and the game could have probably suffered some bigger issues.

Even though they look good theres not a shadow of a doubt that those games are running on console within the same gen as the 360. If those games were to come to 360 and look just as good nobody would be surprised except for the few diehards who stil believe in the incredible "power of the cell".

Death  +   310d ago
Uncharted and TLOU prove that Naughty Dog is an awesome developer. It proves nothing as far as the consoles "power" goes. People use multiplats for comparison since we can see how the game looks on each system. Metal Gear couldn't be done on the 360 due to it's massive size. Then the actual install size was revealed when they patched it. Turns out is was 9 gigs.

With all the talk of GPU's with the next gen systems I am surprised that the PS3 is still thought of as more powerful with a weaker GPU. Originally we were going to see a second Cell used as a GPU. By launch that was scrapped for a standalone GPU.
XboxFun  +   310d ago
Uncharted and TLOU don't do nearly or even more than half of what GTA does. The size of the open world, the amount of NPC each doing their own tasks, the side missions, every single vehicle (plane, car, boat, etc).

This game is a beast and Rockstar deserves more credit than ND for making such a huge game look this good on each system

It's really close but the X360 version stands out just enough to make me pick that version.

It's the grass, the palm trees, shadows, textures on different items and in some places better AA.

Larry L  +   311d ago
Larzen,
You can't expect to have your comments taken seriously when out of one side of your proverbial mouth you're convieniently claiming to be pro-truth and anti-fanboyism (I doubt it's coiincidence that your distaste is always directed towards PS3 fanboys as though a 360 fanboy couldn't even possibly exist here in these comment sections).........while out of the other side of your mouth you are clearly LYING, being a fanboy, and/or are blind or some combination of the three, when you say how the 360 shadows and grass look better (which they do a bit, so that part is true which you then use to mask the blatant lie of) the textures being so much better on 360.

The textures look WAY better on PS3 in these shots.....what textures can be made out by that HIGH camera angle anyway. And as far as I can tell from looking at the pics right now on my 52 inch screen, the difference between the textures is far more noticable than the difference between the shadows.

And the real truth is, these are horrible comparison shots anyway aside from maybe the ferris wheel shot. These are all from the opening. Gameplay shots are what matters if you're a consumer that wants/needs/likes comparison screens to choose a version to buy.

Edit- Just to add, to give specic examples of how much better the textures (and apparently the lighting) is on PS3.......

Upon further inspection of this pics on a big screen, look at the highway pic that looks like a google earth shot. Look at the roofs. On PS3, you can see, and tell clearly what each of those roof decks and what-not are made of whether it be wood planking, bricks, rubber, concrete. On 360 it's more muddy, you can get a basic idea but they don't look like a real and specific material like they do on PS3.

Then look at the Ferris WHeel shot. The metal of the wheel and the roller coaster track looks like old harbor-side metal. The stone patio looks like stone, which look unique from the bricks, not just another color, and the wood of the pier looks like wood. Again on 360, they don't look like specific materials, and some of those textures look down-right BAD. This goes for the water in that same pic too. That looks like water on PS3 far more realistic looking than what I see in the 360 pic which looks almost like UE3 water.

The ONLY thing that looks better in any of these shots really is the anti-aliasing, which is why the text is clearer on that backgraound sign, and explains the shadows. This is not news, really. Unless devs use the kind of AA GoW uses on PS3, AA has to be less aggressive on PS3. But R* has clearly done the same thing BioWare did with DA:O on PS3, they used the extra space of the blu-ray to pack in higher resolution textures.

@Drakesfortune

The Uncharted games looks great on the PS3. The Last of Us looks even better. I have all those games, I have a PS3.

So I know the PS3 have some of the best looking games for this gen-consoles.

Now we are talking about GTA5, and it do not look the same om both consoles. It's nothing gamebreaking or anything. But there are differences, that is for sure.

People denying it and clicking Disagree are nothing but dumb fanboys.

They basically are the same, the differences are minor.
Stsonic  +   311d ago
why are people still arguing over graphics on 8 year old tech. if you cared so much about graphcs you woud be playing pc.
_LarZen_  +   311d ago
Because some people have both consoles and want to get the best looking version there is. If one are going to use hundreds of hours in a game one would like to have the best one...

Since you and clearly others do not care about graphics I guess you are going to skip bying a PS4 or a XBO then?

Since one can buy most of the games on current gen consoles. Yeah right...
Stsonic  +   310d ago
No you have it wrong.

I care about graphics but the margins between two consoles which are at the end of their reigns is hardly going to make any difference considering what we are used to on other platforms now.

If the 360 version stands out, then tell me why

Looks better than

?

Notice the rooftops towards the bottom of the images.
Karpetburnz  +   310d ago
The PS3 has better textures on the rooftops, you can see the textures are blurred on the 360 version, apart from that they're almost the same.
Mikeyy  +   310d ago
You do realise the top pictures are ps3 correct? Ps3 has sharper textures and lighting from the look of these screenshots.

The 360 version is completely missing lighting. Unless the pics are taken at different times of the day??
ape007  +   311d ago
looks unbelievable for a 7/8 year old systems, look identical

looks same to me
hiredhelp  +   311d ago
Ok i agree theyve done a fatastic job R* However the AA is slightly off with the 360 version looking at some the links also a bit blured. I give the Edge to the PS3 but this is minor and this is of course image from a distance.
doesnt effect gameplay im gutted i have to wait pc version you lucky sods.

It looks the same. My biggest concern was the framerate, but that's not a problem anymore.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   311d ago
360 version looks best. It also runs better for me.
Bathyj  +   311d ago

They both look the same...Last gen.

I'll be waiting for the superior PC version. It's going to take some serious modding for the game to be fun to begin with considering how boring GTA4 was.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   311d ago
The vanilla game looks tons more fun that GTA4 did.......

Is it just me or does the 360 looked a little washed out compared to the PS3 version? Other than that (which could just be down to display settings) I can't see any difference at all... Then again I don't exactly have 20/20 vision.
felidae  +   311d ago
complete BS ... ps4 version looks sharper. trust me - i don't care about console wars

PS3 has more detail.

Take note of the brickwork ontop of the buildings.

Also better draw distance (by a small margin).
& the far left lamp post is missing in the 360 shot.

They are almost identical.

After taking a closer look, there are differences. Each version has a very slight advantage in against each other in different aspects. I did notice that the 360 is actually pushing higher res textures in a few places (but PS3 has more detail on say, the ferris wheel for example). I think we should wait for a more professional comparison.
GribbleGrunger  +   311d ago
I'm hopefully going to be testing the PS3 version out at midnight tonight! Our local Asda has 40 copies in and they're open 24 hours a day. Those screenshots do appear to give the PS3 an advantage but it's almost negligible and everyone should be able to enjoy this incredible game.

In the second set of pics you linked, it looks like PS3 has slightly less aliasing, too.
sengoku  +   311d ago
your absolutely right, as you pointed out those shots do have slight diffidences, PS3 version looks a little better.
which is a first for R* games this gen.

very happy to see that at least this time R* tried there best to make them almost identical.
Shadonic  +   311d ago
Don't care about the roofs thing, not going to buy a different console for better textures I just want the game now :( looks great on both.
zu4G  +   311d ago

I also checked sounds archives in PS3 version: its all compressed into MPEG 1.0 layer 3, 32000 Hz, mono, ~80 kbps. So no sounds advantages here between versions :/

In that 5th comparison, the palm trees look better on the 360 version. Other than that its very hard to see any differences. Most important thing of course is the frame rate and screen tearing (if any). Looking forward to reading a real comparison from one of the better comparison sites.

Ordered both as I want to see the differences for myself, I'll just trade in the one that I like least.
Nintenja  +   311d ago
PS3 has slightly better shadows but there is no noticeable difference you will see while concentrating on playing the game.
gabytoto  +   311d ago
are fairly even.
Those who say that the ps3 looks better look at the left palm

gabytoto  +   311d ago
and the right palm
kizzle32  +   311d ago
Yea to me it does look like the palm tree leaves look more detailed and abundant on the 360 version...which is an odd thing...unless the wind or something is just blowing differently at those moments...but can't really tell. Everything else looks exactly the same...
brewskiebob  +   311d ago
i cannot for the life of me tell a difference....lol
The Meerkat  +   311d ago
That doesn't matter.
You MUST pick one over the other or you don't belong here on N4G. /s
kizzle32  +   311d ago
Well...but then looking at the top down pier shot...the PS3 does seem to be a bit crisper and the shadows look a little nicer...meh...whatever...lol.. .getting it at midnight on PS3 just because I like my PS3 better than my 360 and my buddies are getting it on PS3 as well and want to play GTA Online together
