A fan over at GTAForums has compiled a set of gifs comparing Grand Theft Auto 5’s graphical quality on PlayStation 4 versus PlayStation 3.
It looks better, but I don't think it merits a rebuy so soon. But to each his own
It's perfect for someone like me and the millions of others that didn't purchase the first one.
That would be a great reason to actually warrant a purchase now. For myself, I'll probably get it when it comes down in price. Brand new Titles like Alien: Isolation and Far Cry 4 first.
How could you get disagrees.. I haven't played it on last gen either. I'm Gameflying most titles, but I think GTAV is the kind of game you buy, it's hard to be done with it.
I am getting it and I have it on ps3 already.
I resisted for awhile but finally admitted to myself that I wanted to play it again in first person, especially after watching the PS3 to PS4 difference video. I caught a few people streaming it today on Live from Playstation. They were quickly banned but I did see enough to know I made the right decision for myself. Looking forward to this and Far Cry 4 next week. I caught some quickly banned FC4 streams as well and it looked great too.
Y'all taste in gaming is garbage. Not worth a replay and what you mean if you didn't play it? Your taste and gaming habit is suspect if you haven't played one of the greatest last gen games already.
Sure but there are other new things than just chraphics.. Grand Theft Auto V * Seamless integration of new First Person Mode in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online including fully customizable controls, targeting, FOV and more. * New first-person cockpit views for vehicles, with fully re-modeled interiors, including working speedometers, gas dials, radio and instrument panel lighting. * Increased resolution at 1080p at 30fps, 4K compatible for PC. * More than double the draw distance. * New depth of field effects. * High resolution textures. * Over 150 new songs plus new DJ mixes and talk radio. * Dynamically adaptive depth of field. * Increased particle effects quality and number of particle effects rendered on-screen at once. * Improved wind dynamics for clothing, flags, foliage, trees and more. * More realistic fluid dynamics. * Improved weather effects. * Volumetric light pollution. * 3x number of light sources from 360/PS3. * Vehicles from GTA Online Updates now form part of the ambient vehicle population for increased vehicle diversity across the entire world. * Vehicles and weapons from all 11 free GTA Online updates are available in Story Mode from day one. * New land and sea animals. * Animals in the world now have soft fur. Grand Theft Auto Online * Increased player count to 30 players with an additional 2 spectators. * Completely overhauled character creator to allow players a greater range of customization. * Over 120 new props added to the Creator tools for players to use in creating their own content. * Doubled the amount of props allowed in created matches. Returning players will also get bonus stuff like murder mystery missions with Michael, new races and events etc.
Makes me wonder when they put a lot of effort to implement first person view will it eventually have oculus rift and project Morpheus support? That would be awesome. I have the DK2 right now. Hopefully at least someone modes it to play in a 3rd party software.
A lotta new faces around, I mean, things could get REALLY messy
"Animals in the world now have soft fur." :D
I have no reason why I got disagrees on adding virtual reality support. Please tell me why you don't want that or why that effects you? And trust me VR glasses changes the experience of a game drastically. Once you go VR you don't want to go back. Game in development has a beta called Technolust. Probably the best experience I ever had with a game. To bad its short. Can't wait till the game is released.
^^ I'm sure someone will make a mod for PC with Oculus support. It's an obvious thing to do.
it doesn't warrent a rebuy ? this game will be the best game on next gen systems for a very long time. i guess you can keep playing indie games and trash like Assassin's Creed. i'll be playing this for months. i put over 200 hours on the last gen version.
Would you say the same about Halo, TLOU ?
Halo is a collection of 4 game. Some as old as 14 years. List game was just bought by some of these people last year. I am not here to tell people how to spend their money 💵. It is just no way I would rebuy a game so quickly. Unless of course, there was nothing else on my system that interest me. But I have plenty to play. Too much already actually.
loooks like trash the pictures arent popping like they should they throw off a flat appereanrnce instead of density
I bought it day 1 on PS3, and I have it pre-ordered on PS4. The graphics, while being a very noticeable upgrade, are not the only reason to buy it again. It's actually far from the only reason.
Same here. I have absolutely zero problems with shelling out money again. If there is any game that deserves it, it's this one. They did hell of a job to excite people again.
its like console vs pc version except pc version can have a res thats 4x whats available on consoles
Not a night and day difference, but certainly an improvement. I think of this as more of an upgraded port than a remaster. That said, I will still buy it for online shenanigans and to play the story mode with the kind of visual quality rockstar had originally intended.
Where does it say anywhere that it's a remaster?
@Personman I have heard quite a few people refer to it as a remaster. Especially when somebody refers to halo MCC as the best remaster ever. somebody actually replied to one of my posts in a halo thread referring to GTA V as the "best remaster". Dont blame me..blame N4G members for that! lol As I said. I call it an upgraded port. Funny how you kinda missed that part of my post....
I was just wondering where everyone is getting these terms from. I think it's just the PS4 version of the game. They've most likely been working on the next-gen/PC version all along, but needed more time to optimize it to their standards. I don't look at it as a remaster, but just a late next-gen release. Would you say that CoD:AW on PS4 is a remaster of the PS3 version?
"I was just wondering where everyone is getting these terms from." Again..I NEVER considered it a remaster. I clearly stated that I consider this an upgraded port.. It just seems to be called a remaster, when it suits certain peoples arguments. READ my post properly. "I think it's just the PS4 version of the game." erm...OK? "Would you say that CoD:AW on PS4 is a remaster of the PS3 version?" Are you seriously asking me this? Of course it isnt. Please read my post properly before responding.
It is very much a night and day difference. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Edit: I'm aware of what the PC modders can do. I'm one of them. I didn't help with ICEnhancer or anything, but give Rockstar a break. This is a massive leap in visuals.
Im not saying it does not look better. I just dont think the difference is that big a leap. I dont see why you guys are being so defensive about this. did you miss the part of my post where I said I am buying it for improved graphics and to continue playing it online? The games looks good. But as I said. Its not a massive difference. You want to see a night and day difference? wait till the PC modders get their hands on this...
"as I said. Its not a massive difference." Say it as often as you want. Repetition doesn't make you correct. The PS3 to PS4 trailer shows a massive difference.
You said in your own words "I think of this as more of an upgraded port than a remaster" which implies that you heard someone call it a remaster, otherwise you wouldn't have used that term. I was simply asking where people are getting this "remaster" term from. Since you used it, it was obvious to me that you got that from someone else.
Visual upgrades, improved/bigger online, first person mode... This is a definite re-purchase for me!
For those that think this is just a silly port, check these vids out;) https://www.youtube.com/wat... AND THIS ONE TOO.. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
look great and a great game to release stress after a long day at work!
Indeed! Been working nine to five for nearly nine months as a cleaner (yup, livin' the dream since I didnt get to university last year) and i cant wait to revisit los santos in first person and just take in the beatiful scenery in much more detail!
First person would be enough for me to consider buying it again, although I always intended to get the PC version anyway. Sold my PS3 couple a month or 2 after it launched.
I am trading in my PS3 version for the PS4 version then two months later trade in my PS4 version for the PC version..
This also makes a lot of sense, PC version for mods. PS4 version for online community and Rockstar support.
The 1st Person Mode sold me.....when I buy a PS4 next year most likely, this game is coming home with me too. Juicy P.S.- I didn't buy GTA5 last gen, so im saying I don't think these upgrades would warrant a re-purchase at $60, uh uh wouldn't do that,$30 on Amazon, but that would be the most I could see myself paying for n upgraded re-purchase
People like you make me laugh... why?... well , I will try to explain . Every year gamers buy the COD's , the Football , hockey , basketball , with little to no upgrades from the previous versions. Yes Cod gets new maps and a new 5 or 6 hour single player campaign , and the sports games get new rosters and little tweaks here and there , basically a fresh coat of paint to make it seem new. Bare with me here , there is a point to this. GTAV ... well , it's the same game right? Better graphics and a tone of new shit in the current version that isn't in the last gen version , same game but better. But there is one BIG difference that GTAV will be bring to the new consoles that Cod and every sports game or any game for that matter won't be. And that is the carrying over of all your stats , money , character level , cars and apartments. So what makes me laugh at all you guys who haven't played GTAV because you wanted to wait for the current gen version ? Well , there is a ton of high level players crossing over to GTAV on the new consoles, my self included . And we have all the fully upgraded weapons , armor, cars ... everything... Los Santos is a dangerous city ... good luck to all you low level guys, and hope you don't run into guys like me or you wont stand a chance. You will just be jumping from server to server. haha
@JackBNimble Your making some assumptions, jumping the gun and not looking before you leap.... Now let explain to you the assumptions: Assumption #1: "I waited to buy GTA V on Next Gen" Reality check #1: uh No I didn't. Didn't even know GTA V would come to Next Gen 1st off & 2nd THE REASON I didn't buy GTA V last gen was cause I simply was not "interested" in it at the time(for several reasons), and I think what has changed my mind mostly is the "1st Person Mode" which is my favorite type of game.....try asking next time maybe? Assumption #2: I will play GTA V online Reality Check #2: Again wrong, if this was the Gong Show or Baseball(strike 2!!) you'd now be in a "precarious predicament".....I have no interest in playing GTA V online, that IS NOT an allure for me, and yes there are several reasons why that is so, but it is irrelevant. In closing...what makes me laugh is self deluded and cocky gamers with assumptions and "keyboard bravado". Next time don't put the cart before the horse. Class Dismissed.

I just sold my GTA V PS3 copy. I'm try to buy this game for PC when that version releases.
I really think its worth $60. I'll buy it but no rush.
I put a pre order on it and this is the first article I've seen thats made me think it might have been a mistake. If this article is true and those really are the correct comparison shots than there is something being hidden about the quality of the next gen remaster. These shots do seem a little too drastic in difference to me to believe though but every other next gen shot has had this dark look to it.
I actually just started playing this on PS3 love the game. I'll buy a ps4 next year maybe I'll replay.
I'm buying at release because I sold my PS3 to buy my PS4 and I've been missing this game for a year, can't wait to play some more of GTA V :-)
I'm hoping there's more TV channels
