Really want to see the new graphics

No question I'm juiced for the PC version. I've read improved AI: http://www.grandtheftautofo... Makes sense if your PC version has access to more RAM. More traffic on roads too, but I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I just think (and hope) that with my PC that I can crank the eye candy and have perhaps the best PC gaming experience EVER. That's my hope anyways.

Actually, the next gen console versions (for any multiplat, not just GTA V) would have access to more RAM, since EVERY PS4 and XB1 has 8GB of RAM, where not every PC has the same. However, even the most advanced PC games I play never use more than 3GB of RAM, most of the time below 2GB, and my 2GB VRAM is never too little. If they use more, that's just bad programming right now.

dont forget the possibility of mods... PC Modders can finally make the switch from GTAIV and make GTAV their playground. Everyone benefits.

Unfortunately, this won't be 60fps on the PS4/XB1. Open world games don't run at that. 900P/1080P/30FPS

TruthInsider 1623d ago

MGS Phantom Pain? 1080p 60fps open world!

Half_Minute_Hero1622d ago (Edited 1622d ago )

Good point, but from the 30 minute gameplay I saw a lot of rough edges that looked last-gen, like the pixelated foliage, for one, and low res textures. GTA V will look better.

Crazyglues1623d ago (Edited 1623d ago )

Yeah can't wait to play this....

Not for me. Already played it 'last gen'. 40 quid for some enhancements isnt justfied. I'd need 64 or 128 players online to justify a purchase, and i think it only has 16 players, which ruins it. Far too short in numbers, and variety online.

BattleReach1623d ago (Edited 1623d ago )

You already get killed every 3 seconds when in a game with 16 people, and you want 128?

cfc831623d ago

Its too centralist. If there was more players, there could be jobs and heist all over the place. As it is, people focus on the one part of the map. For me it lacked.

FlyingFoxy1623d ago

San Andreas MP mod on PC has 200 player Cops n Robbers servers that are still active today, in fact the server browser still shows a 2-3k people playing on the servers per day.

You don't die every 3 seconds with more players unless they are all bunched up in a small area.

More players are usually always better if you have a big map to do stuff in.

akurtz1623d ago

64 to 128? That is the dumbest thing ive heard this week.

MysticStrummer1623d ago

Really? It's kind of late in the week for that to dumbest thing you've heard. You must not look at N4G much.

dcj05241623d ago

Nah you're wrong. Look at San Andreas PC. 200 people and it's fine. Use your imagination.

iNFAMOUZ11623d ago

you want caviar too princess?

Pogmathoin1622d ago

Not sure why you got so many disagrees cfc...... I guess you must get it again, or the hardcore here will come after you...... Errr forgot to put fanboy after hardcore.

cfc831622d ago

Youre always gonnae catch down votes for criticing popular titles on here. I do believe though that they pc players will get the much better deal when mods unlock multiplayer number restrictions. Some size of map, and to restrict it to 16 players means youre isolated if you leave the 'busy part'. To get the new version with mods, at a cheaper price or free, is the ultimate win.

Better performance, better experience

ape0071623d ago

also better car damage, better car models, more fedility, more cars, animals, people on screen, better vegetation.......

GTA V nextgen feel like the TRUE GTA V, i guess it's the original build of the game that was downgraded on ps3/360, the game is friggin too ambitious for last gen systems

Soc51623d ago

Yes! More fedility!!
Wait what's fedility? If it's good I want it! Must be a next gen thing.

YodaCracker1623d ago (Edited 1623d ago )

I wonder if we will finally see an end to the issue of repeating cars. It will be even worse with the increased traffic volume if 60% of said traffic is composed of the same SUV in varying colors.

Are_The_MaDNess1623d ago

Smoother Performance and a cleaner picture with faster controls.

Jaqen_Hghar1623d ago

and a better controller (going from PS3 to PS4)


Agree, 1080p and 60fps (or LOCKED 30) and of course better textures and draw distance, and shadows. Most effects and lighting were already really good I thought.

tee_bag2421623d ago

Lol.. "30fps or a 'locked' 60fps". It seems like simple old vsync has a new name with n00bs these days.
