GTA IV Runs at 630p on PS3, But Who Cares?

In another case of news that makes up fanboys' dreams, we've got another case of missing Ps. This time it's Grand Theft Auto IV on PlayStation 3, which has been discovered to run at only 630p – well short of the 720p you find in the 360 version.

You can find a fairly simple explanation of what that means on Kotaku, but anyone who's played the game or checked out GameVideos' side-by-side comparison of the game knows that the game looks great on both consoles. There's a slight difference with the color palettes in the two versions, and the slightly warmer colors in the PS3 version might just be a result of Rockstar using the processing power on something other than displaying those extra 90 lines.

Ultimately, while fanboys might bicker and argue about which technical detail makes for the superior version, the rest of us can go on with enjoying a terrific game. (Culture, PS3, Xbox 360)

No one...it only matter if its Halo.

lol...you cant even tell.
chaosatom333  +   2424d ago
COD4 looks good at 640p, gtaiv looks good at 640p.

Does halo look nearly as good as cod4 or gtaiv at 640p?

HALO was touted as the end to all gaming?
------>Look at the first trailer for god sakes.
------> halo didn't look anywhere near that trailers. GTAiv does.

edit @below: You try playing GTA AND cod4, before making a judgement and make sure that you eat some breakfast before you do, or can cause blurry vision.

You got any other pics from biased sources like microsoft.com?

getting back to the topic:

U said that "it only matter if its halo" that's because of the hype. It was twice more than GTA and 4 times more than COD4.

i played the halo multiplayer at a friends' house.

Actually yeah it does.

http://media.teamxbox.com/g...

lol...try playing before making judgment.

It looks bad at time (character models) but, it looks brilliant at other times...But, you wont believe me...lol.

How bout you buy an xbox, try the game, then pass judgment. But, answer me this. Did that pic look good yes or no?

LOL

Edit: I have, you dink...i have gta 4 on ps3, and i have played cod 4 countless times....tell me if that pic looks good.

Edit #2: "You got any other pics from biased sources like microsoft.com?"
Please keep making yourself look dumber...go play the game. You can take that pic within the first five minutes...lol....so Yes or No

Edit#3: LOL...keep avoiding it...you know what you are...i dont have to say it...i dont care how much hype it has...hype was made to sell games...not how you judge them. How about playing the game.

YES or NO

Edit#4: So you give up...do i win? Im guessing all the avoiding means - YES the pic looks good. lol...your basing your opinion on playing multi-player...lol...was it at least fun? Oh let me guess...you wont admit that too

You know what's funny, the guy who discovered it was 640p (quaz51 or whatever) who is apparently a resolution counting fool, preferred the PS3 version when he announced it.

http://forum.beyond3d.com/s...

Resolution is not the #1 factor for picture quality. Head on over to AVSFORUM and hear from non-gaming PQ obsessed posters. Contrast ratio, color accuracy etc are more important.
dan-boy  +   2424d ago
so true breakfast
it only matters if it's halo, or a 360 exclusive game. man, they got to have something to accompany rrod.

halo looked and played great, so does cod4.

the reason why this can't get dropped is because of what happened the weekend before release. all the sony army were jumping up and down and beating their chests in a collective state of extacy. claiming that they were (finally) getting a superior multi-platform game...everyone of them on here was loving it. even alexM aka shadow hearts aka sammy_mantra was contributing stuff. there's was wild claims flying around, and all sorts of nonsense. people thinking that was the reason why R* hadn't shown the ps3 version pre-release incase it would've hurt the 360 sales lol. we now know why they hadn't shown the ps3 version.

but it turned out a whole lot different, and because of that weekend, there has to be thread after thread trying to justify everything. but, after most sites claim there's no noticeable differences. i think it's time to put this one to bed....remember, the quicker this is out of the news, the quicker it will be forgotten.
Lifendz  +   2423d ago
It doesn't bother me
I just wish they would have stated it on the box. I was trying to adjust the screen on my TV before I finally just knocked my settings down to 480p. The game looks so much better running where it's supposed to be rather than trying to force 720p. My only gripe was the driving but even that is getting better. You can't drive around with the gas button pressed down all the time like you could before.

Adamalicious  +   2423d ago
I haven't seen any evidence that it's any more or less buggy than the 360 version. Neither version is so buggy that it ruins the game - the freezing stuff is a bummer, but it doesn't seem to be all that widespread (hasn't happened to me).
Kleptic  +   2424d ago
I thought Gamesradar or someone debunked this?...they said their comparison used straight uncompressed 720p video from both consoles 'confirming the two machines rendering in the same resolution'...

the guy on B3D also said he didn't know how new or old the screenshot was for the PS3 version of GTAIV...Game Informer had an article confirming the PS3 and 360 versions being rendered at the same resolution...

it doesn't matter to me...I own the PS3 version, and it does look great...and runs great (especially for a GTA game)...its just this would turn out to be really lame if they do indeed run at the same resolution...

Yes who cares, really if your enjoying the game, I just hated the sh^t Halo 3 got for not being so called "Tru-HD", that's all.

I still don't know why the game is like that, on the PS3, given the Superiority complexes, we hear, every damn day on this site.

Oh well....Game on. Who cares right...

chanto23 Thx
and you make perfect sense kiddo.

Like I said, all the Sh^t Halo 3 took was for no damn reason after seeing how well COD4 came out and now this game..

Superior version based on Opinions...Right kiddo. Perfect Sense. But who cares right..

I don't really care...that is why I said that at the bottom of my first post...I was only referring it as lame in that if blogs like kotaku took it as true, when the magic forum poster may have been wrong...

and yeah...halo 3 got a lot of crap for being 640p...but what I think is generally accepted is that the game really wasn't visually ground breaking...at all...and had halo 3 been in 720p...it would not have made a single difference...I am not starting crap on halo 3 again, I am just speaking in terms of how the general gaming audience reacted after seeing it for the first time...the 640p thing was just something for fanatics to throw at each other, differences in resolution at this scale make very little difference...

no believe me though...I haven't lost an ounce of sleep over this resolution crap...I KNOW the PS3 version looks fantastic, as well as the 360 version...I am just happy that the PS3 didn't get an Orange Box type of half-assed'ness...
alexM  +   2424d ago
FAKE :- GTA4 PS3 is 720P (GAMESRADAR) .GTA4 was ported from X360 to PS3...BUT looks and runs better on PS3
Swedish gaming mag Gamereactor said that there are MAJOR DIFFERENCES between the 2 version

http://www.gamereactor.se/r...
Swedish Gamereactor mentioned in their 10/10 review that they were pretty surprised regarding the difference between the PS3 and 360-versions. The PS3-version features better colours, contrast, load times and what looks to be better resolution textures. The game also looks sharper and has a more stable fps.

IGN

http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...

"For those wanting to know which version looks better, the edge goes to the PS3. The textures and framerate are comparable, but the PS3 has far less pop-in. The 360 has richer colors, but the PS3 has better anti-aliasing making it look a little cleaner. Because GTA IV can preload onto the PS3 hard drive, the in-game loads are faster. Don't worry Xbox owners, the load times are rarely more than 30 seconds and don't occur very often. The slight visual edge goes to PS3, but the 360 is no slouch. Either version will do you proud".

X360 version has FR dips too . more frequent than the PS3 version
"Past GTA titles have had mild-to-serious framerate issues and technical glitches, because the games were trying to do far more than the PlayStation 2 could handle. While GTA IV is pushing the PS3 and 360 to the limit, it also runs amazingly well. Sure, there are framerate hitches here and there and (particularly on 360) there is some texture pop-in, but it actually runs better than I expected. That a game with great AI, an awesome physics engine and a detailed open world runs so well and with such short load times is a technical marvel. For that, I can forgive framerate issues and some noticeable aliasing. "

http://www.n4g.com/NewsPend...

EGM
"PS3 version looks slightly more vibrant and sharp "

GAMESRADAR

http://www.gamesradar.com/x...

"Occasional pop-up".........ONLY IN X360 version of GTA4

http://xs226.xs.to/xs226/08...

So happy that i own a PS3

GAMESRADAR also confirms that PS3 version is SUPERIOR

"While the PS3 and 360 versions of the game are functionally identical, the PS3's visuals sport noticeably smoother edges, along with a warmer color palette that makes everything look slightly more realistic. If you're looking to compare Accomplishments with your Achievement-hoarding friends, though, forget it - GTA IV ignores these half-assed consolation prizes altogether. PS3 owners also have to put up with a nearly eight-minute installation the first time they start the game, which puts the normally slower Blu-ray load times on par with the Xbox 360 version. (That is, unless it's running on a 360 with no hard drive, which we're told will face much longer loads.)"

VIDEO COMPARISON between GTA4 PS3 and WASHED OUT VERSION OF GTA4 ON x360

You can easily determine the best version from a series of Comparison videos

Gamevideos

http://www.n4g.com/News-140...

As seen in the video one version sports SLIGHTLY brighter and more saturated colours . Look at the water at the end. Look at the ROADS.

You could compare this video to IGN's comparison

http://www.onlineflvplayer.... http://media.rockstarwatch....

Spoiler

look at the DIFFERENCES in COLORS of the cars/ shadows/ roads. Notice that one features yellow stripes on the roads which appear as white stripes on the other version. Notice the shadows which appear dark orange on one version. Notice the car which appears slightly more greenish on the ps3 version. The yellowish green tint is VERY MUCH NOTICEABLE in one version only. see the comparison footages from 3:00 to the end to base your judgement

Gamesradar

Clearly the video demonstrates the slight improved brightness and color depth in one of the versions

360 > PS3 version and now that it's in people's hands they are agreeing. Many multiple console owners who bought the PS3 version have since taken it back for the 360 version.

Many couldn't even get the game to play. LMAO!

The superior console can't even do 720p. Ooooh it is sooo powerful says the fishheads but then reality came and kicked you square in the nutt(I don't believe you are man enough to have both of yours drop yet).

You are right - it doesn't really matter. Both versions are apparently really good. The only thing that I would say as a 360 owner is that I am sick of hearing how much more powerful the PS3 is or will be some day. The simple truth is that the 360 version draws 90 frames more than the PS3 game. As a result, the 360 is being taxed more than the PS3 version. That is just a reality. I am not saying that the 360 is better or more powerful than the PS3 version, but you can't tell me that your 630p version is better than my 720p version when your system draws less lines every second.

Both versions have problems. The 360 has less draw and the PS3 version seems to be locking consoles up. Maybe it is me, but I will take the pop ins.
projectile  +   2424d ago
I agree
If the ps3 really was so much more powerfull it could draw the same ammount of lines and still use the post prosessing effects it is using to make it look good.
The graphicsåart on the ps3 is not as powerfull so they use the cell for the postprosessing to make it look better. I have to admit the postprosessing they do with the cell is pretty good.

the difference is that Halo 3 was made for the 360 as its flagship title. it should have shown what the 360 was capable of much like Gears did.

GTA4 was made on the 360 then ported to the PS3. if MGS4 runs at 640p, then i might be upset.

See "futile pissing contest". Is 10p even worth a comment? Jesus.
Gitaroo  +   2424d ago
its 640p, same as Halo 3, it has been confirmed for the second time when the high quality screenshots were out. And they ppl that talk about it still havent got it right.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   2424d ago
The fishheads seemed to care when it was Halo 3 we were talking about. Now it's all "just shutup and enjoy the game on whatever system you have it looks great". When 360 owners said Halo 3 looks great that wasn't good enough and it certainly isn't good enough in this case.

360 > PS3

No excuses

Oh look, a crabbot seems to be losing bubbles, I say gang up

HAHAHAHAHAHA
Varsarus  +   2424d ago
If it is true
Then HOW THE HELL is Heavenly Sword 720p with 4xAA?, Killzone 2 is said to be 720p with 4xMSAA, not to even mention WarDevil, 1080p @ 60fps....this article and GTA IV resolution makes no sense.

The reason why I should care is
you (Ps3) dummies went for hours about how halo 3 was at 640 or 550 or some ratio like that.

So hippocrates=PS3 or just hippocrates = sony

seriously you guys contradict yourselves every week it seems.

sony at Ps2 "graphics dont make good games"

sony at the Ps3 "our graphics will kill the 360"

sony at halo 3 "omg look its running at 650 lines of res"

sony at GTA 4 "oh who cares its way better anyway"

sony at killzone 2 "look I cant wait to play it in 06' "

sony at killzone 2 in 20 years
"dude the graphics were worth the wait...*wake up* sh!t !!!"

Ill switch to ps3 if they get a good rts or two like supreme commander or starcraft 2, that'l be the gamebreaker for me.

but yeah enough about me, lets see how you dummies can bend my poor grammar and statements to make me seem insane.

have a nice day..

I have a good one
looks like the PS3 has reached it's limit already.
mistertwoturbo  +   2424d ago
I have a better one, the 360 hit it's limit when Gears of War came out. Why? Nothing has looked better than that game, and it's been over a year and a half.

@the fools above
Don't be dumb, unless your being sarcastic...

If not, developers are only seeing 30% of the PS3 power in games, Uncharted being one believe it or not.

"SPUS: lots of stuff. Scene traversal, water, decompression, particles, etc. Using only 30% of SPUs"

The Cell owns Intel's & AMD's latest CPU's to date.

So what were you saying????
Whoooop  +   2424d ago
Simple
HALO 3 wasn't only exclusive to the 360, it was MS/360 Flagship tittle.

That's why HALO3 deserves all the smack.
Varsarus  +   2424d ago
@Whoooop
Exactly, Halo 3 was purely optimized for the 360, all dev kits available, so what caused the game to be lower resolution and with NO anti-aliasing?

It's either 2 guesses

Bungie are crap coders

or

It's the hardware
Funky Town_TX  +   2424d ago
@Varsarus
Just joking. Actually I could care less if Uncharted used 5% of the PS3's power or if the PS3 ran at 8 terflops. I play games not specs. Read my other post I don't care what res GTA is either.

"hippocrates" was actually a greek philosopher i think
Cynical-Gamerzus  +   2423d ago
The reason why A-holes
The truth is the PS3 has no limits as of yet while the Xbox 360 hit its limit when Gears of War came out..Talk about a sad short life cycle!!!
What a Joke!!Whats next xbox720 for X-mas???
Hope you enjoyed your budget PC aka Xbox360 suckers and all those "hand me down better on PC titles"..!!

The Sad part is these lazy sorry Developers are using the 360 as a lead platform and trying to port over code that was designed to run on that poor Low def system that originally had no HDMI and is crippled by 10MB of Ram that can't handle HD and post processing.

SO these lazy bafoons are employing this same approach to the PS3 porting over crap code, which spells disaster.Its like they are trying to Emulate the 360 on the PS3, instead of using the PS3 as a lead and building an engine from scratch that was designed for Cell; and make use of the PPU and SPU's power and parallelism , re-thinking data organization and algorithms.LAZY poor developers.
JokesOnYou  +   2424d ago
well,...
imo the gametrailers side by side comparison vid showed the game is just a bit better looking on the 360, the close ups were just sharper on the 360, while ps3 version has somekind of fine blurr effect to it. Either way GTA4 isn't exactly the best in terms of graphics for ps3 or 360, but when has graphics ever been GTA's selling point?

It does make you wonder though, why would R* have to dumb down the resolution at all for the ps3 version? I mean the game was delayed so you would think that with all the time they spent and all the ps3 raw power that it would be on par with the 360 res or maybe higher. Now I hear people saying R* used some kind of "post processing" tech for the ps3 version if so I don't see where, but frankly I won't pretend to understand how it works but that still makes me wonder why couldn't they do that and run the game natively at 720p with all the power packed in the ps3?

ahhh well, although I do find it very ironic(funny) considering all the pre-game talk, either the game looks good on both consoles, the only people that keep looking at the pixel count is the n4g detectives.

JOY

Good points. And I find it even more insulting (as a PS3 owner) that the game cant run without freakin streaming from the HDD... what's up Sony ???

Am I gonna have to download 1-4GB's per game to run them now ???

no difference
the reason i bought a 360 instead of a ps3 was because there is no difference between the two, I could get a bigger selection of games plus that looked better or the same on the 360, one day I will buy a ps3 when there is a game that gives me a reason too, right now i don't see that happening very soon.
ActionBastard  +   2424d ago
The 360 is the best console ever. The are 100's of games worth spending $60 for.

@action bastard
even if the games are bomber man act zero?
the new haloblows  +   2424d ago
Has anyone finished it?
The ending pissed me off, but I think there is two ways it could end though, so the other ending might not suck as bad.
