"We can see that the PC version of "GTA5" simply beautiful for words, whether it is physical modeling, lighting or shadows, both on the host to enhance the quality of the original version of a big slice."
Good...honestly I'd be pretty disappointed if the PC version didn't get utilized to it's full potential.
Yeh that's crazy , I would never have guessed a high end expensive pc playing gtav in 4k would look better than the new consoles, that's shocking wow !!!! /sarcasm
"Hey, what can we do to get some clicks" "Let's use Youtube to compare GTA graphics, let's add 4K to the title even though the video will be at 1080p" "...GENIUS"
@xHeavYx YouTube has 4K support. They just didn't use it.
I recently made the move to 1440p monitor. Its definitely a big step up from 1080p. Previously i never thought there would be much of a jump. I think the difference is pretty much the same as the jump between 720p and 1080p. I would think 4k would be amazing. I would upgrade to it as soon as there are more 5k monitors out there with atleast 34inch real estate.
@xheavyx You're right, a youtube video DOESN'T capture just how much of an upgrade it is on PC! http://imgur.com/a/viCnI
The fact the video is 'only' in 1080p but it's still obvious the PC version is way out in front means this will be the ultimate version to buy and keep for me. Even if you can only play it in 1080p now, you can replay it much higher resolutions later when you have better hardware. This is one of my favourite things about PC.
ps3 version clearly looks the best. PC has rather blurry textures
I am pretty sure this is sort of an advertisement to PC gamers. They are trying to entice them to buy the game by showing them its able to go 4k. I mean if you have the power. Why not. Personally I am more stoked about what comes out of the mod community for the PC version.
To XHEAVYX This video is right done. Youtube 1080 to 4k is not important in this case because images are scaled to 1080 with zoom. See now? "Genius"
begging for two years old console game. really, pc master race? pc gaming is pretty much a niche market at this point, im not saying its dead...but its almost irrelevent seeing how sales are pretty low on pc versus on consoles, sure you get some anomaly like LOL or DOTA 2, but thats pretty much it. i mean .....numbers dont lie, consoles drive the gaming business and thats a blatant fact. --Dark Souls global sales as of Feb2015: Windows, 0.07m PS3, 1.96m Xb360 0.94 m --Dark Souls II global sales as of Feb2015: Windows, 0.12 m PS3, 1.12 m Xbox 360, 0.54 m --Evolve Global Total sales as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.07m PS4, 0.42m XbOne, 0.28m --Wolfenstein: The New Order Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.34m PS4, 1.17m XbOne, 0.48m --Far Cry 4: Windows, 0.42m PS4, 2.97m XbOne, 1.09m --Battlefield 4 Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015 Windows, 1.22m PS4, 2.63m XbOne, 1.70m --Alien: Isolation Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.12m PS4 0.66m XbOne 0.31m --Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.30m PS4, 6.25m XbOne, 4.22m --Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.28m PS4 2.09m XbOne 0.95m --Watch Dogs Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.34m PS4 3.54m XbOne 1.31m --Dragon Age: Inquisition Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.45m PS4 1.39m XbOne 0.64m --Trials Fusion Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.02m PS4, 0.27m XbOne, 0.13m --Assassin's Creed: Unity Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.40m PS4, 3.05m XbOne 2.57m --Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Global Total as of 21st Feb 2015: Windows, 0.57m PS4, 2.23m XbOne 2.05m
@peaSFor Begging? Oh please, we've all known this game was coming for a long time, no one is begging. Rockstar is just taking their time with it. Besides, it's not like console gamers don't have to wait to play certain games that PC has had for a long time. I can't believe how defensive some of you get every time a comparison article shows up. Why bring up all this irrelevant stuff? And where are your numbers from? If they come from tracking retail sales then it's pointless because digital sales comprise the majority of PC game sales (not physical copies sold at retail). In any case, it's true that certain titles sell less on PC. That's simply due to the fact that PC gamers in general have somewhat different tastes than console gamers, as well as the fact that there are more games on PC overall and sales are therefor spread out among more titles. Overall game sales on PC are much higher than any console platform. https://opengamingalliance.... https://marketrealist.imgix...
@PeaSFor Where did you get those numbers from? @starchild Those charts make no sence, it makes more money, i agree (wont be debating that), what is making money?. Would be better a list of games. Those charts are as useless as the numbers...
@PeaSFor Lol for taking retail numbers when most sales on PC happen digitally!
@PeasFor Sales are not everything you know. I would say ever since I started gaming on my rig. That I started playing more than consoles. Mostly because I can play games old and new. A lot of games on PC have not made their way onto consoles. The gaming community is large enough to have more titles than consoles do. I still game on consoles but there is no reason to downplay PC gaming. Its rich with developers and gamers alike.
regardless you can still tell the difference so whats your point..
@PeaSFor Vgchartz does NOT take into account digital sales, over 90% of sales of PC are Digital http://www.pcr-online.biz/n...
@krypt1983 nope, the point is that pc gaming makes a lot of money, but if most of that money comes from dota, wow, lol, farmville, then it doesnt account for 90% of the hardcore market in term of games, so it is a big deal... That chart is as useless as PeaSFor numbers.
@PeaSFor * Facepalm * http://gifsoup.com/view/129...
@peasfor You are hilarious, you know those numbers from VGChartz are physical sales, right? Therefore, you wasted all that time pointing out nothing. Hell, Dark Souls 1 and 2 were only sold physically in EU. Physical distribution for PC games is small and to actually use VGChartz like it proves something is just absurd.
&PEasfor *gives an ironic round of applause at 30 fps* as you might have gathered by now PC gamers aren't a retailers best friend. Out of my 20 games installed currently on my PC only Battlefield 4 was a physical release.
All it shows is the PC uses more detailed texture packs due to more CPU/GPU power. Surprised some of the PS3 stills looked better than PS4 though so wonder if it's just poor comparison work 4K lol and another lol @PEasfor and besides the PC being mostly digital do you have any idea how many games that are on the PC never even get to consoles or the user made maps and game conversions that add so much to existing PC games (go see ModDB for instance)!
i was happy enough playing it on my ps4 a year before the pc people get it but i hope they enjoy it. they have waited long enough.
Sometimes you just have to wait a little longer for the best.
"a little" by that you mean 2 and half years....
It's only been out on PS3/360 originally since Sept 2013 so only been out 1 1/2 years, played it on my PS3 and will play it on PC. 2 1/2 years really cemelc?
Yeah you sure have shown me!!! >_> I mean now ill have to go back to my time machine and tell 2013 cemelc to remember the date of gta 5, thats how important it will be >_> A full year of games have come and go, more than 365 days, thats A LOT OF TIME, it better be worth the wait.
Cemeic- Funny how nobody was making that argument when all the PS4 fans were hyping Planetside 2.
I just wish they'd do a PC version of Red Dead Redemption. I enjoyed it enough on the PS3 but the graphics were rather blurry whereas a PC (and even PS4/X1 version) would shine.
I can't believe the difference in some of those shots! First off, that closeup of the hands was a bad comparison. I've never seen hands look like that on my PS4 copy. They were pretty bad. For the rest of the shots, I really can't believe that the PC version looks THAT much better. That was quite a difference. Actually makes me wanna buy a PC as this is my favorite game. Pretty badass
PC renders so much more of the veggies!
Maybe all rockstar devs became vegetarian lately. "we need to render more Veggies in game now". lol just jk.
Officially released polished screenshots vs PS4 captured gameplay? It's not really a fair fight.
It's amazing how many people seem to have these top notch rigs that could run the entire internet on their own without overheating.
Your on a gaming website. It not far fetched to encounter people with gaming rigs on a gaming website. Besides recommended gpu's is a 660.. Not exactly "top notch" anymore.
Rigs in preparation for Star Citizen!
Recommended isn't going to get you 4k. Which is the whole point of what I said, so many people who own PC's lie about their capability. So they will not be able to run GTA at these specs.
The have a great team working on the PC version. If Max Payne 3 was anything to go by, this should be brilliantly optimised. Can't wait to finally play this at 60fps.
Wow that's actually impressive. I wasn't expecting that much sharper of textures and detail compared to the PS4 version. I figured we'd be getting the same with just options for higher screen resolutions.
too bad the ps3 blurred out ferris wheel in the background looks more realistic from a distance
Yeah...not sure why they toned down the atmospheric blur effect. Sure, it take more horsepower to not have it, but it actually looked good.
I'm sure PC graphics are highly configurable meaning blur can be added if wanted.
Wonder what PC graphics level the console versions will match, medium or high
Will my GTX 980 strix be able to run this at ultra? I'm really new to PC gaming. I only have Game Dev Tycoon, Scribblenauts and Ori lol.
haha. It stands a better chance @ ultra than any other single GPU out there. You should have no problems @ 1080p at least. But who knows for sure?
You'll should be able to get 1080p 60fps max settings. Can't be sure on how it performs with a higher resolution or framerate until the game is out. The 980 is over 2x better than the recommened card.
I run a GTX 980 with a I5 4670k and almost every AAA game I've thrown at it so far is 1080p 60fps with max settings.
even 970 with no problem lol
You know what. Normally, I would never say this but, I just have to be honest: PS3 vs PC is the generation leap I wanted to see. I've been kidding myself... This gen is truly underpowered.
Always was going to be, neither Sony or MS were going to be able to get a high end GPU and CPU together for a reasonable price for a console. Just have to wait and see how well devs can optimize the games and find new ways for developing games to make the most out of the hardware as there is no denying that both the consoles are alot weaker than high end rigs.
That's always going to be the case. There is no PC out there for $349 that can run GTA 5 4K Ultra Settings. If so please link i will buy it today. Thing with consoles is they take time for devs to get it to look amazing. While devs working on PC never optimize the old system it's always new game released and you need a pricey upgrade to handle it.
You get what you pay for. If you wanted $800 consoles, you shoulda asked. Or just get a nice PC if you want to drop that kind of coin.
Waiting for Skylake. Thinking of accompanying it with Titan X maybe. It just isn't enough for 4K, though. Needs another Titan X to do high quality 4K @ 30-60fps. Also, not into LCD tech, I'm more of a plasma/dlp projector guy, so once the reasonably priced OLED 4K TVs hit the market, I might go for one of those. So I'll be waiting for another year or two until I do my 4K set. Meanwhile, my PS4 and a little bit better specced PC should do. Consoles for exclusives and PC for multiplats is my way :)
Agreed, I just got a i54690k and GTX 970 and its exactly the leap I wanted to see. But do you know how much more $$ than ps4 you have to spend to play this game in 4k?
Not only are this gen consoles a massive disappointment hardware wise, there are very few games - and out of those few so little are any good .
Ye the games have been extremely disappointing which is the biggest issue.
I have faith in Bloodborne. Praise the blood!
Agreed with you :)
Godammnit R* - I'm supposed to be still mad! Shit like this makes me wanna upgrade my rig, and triple dip!!! GRRRR
EXERCTLER! BERST KERMENT EVARRRRRR.
Now that the obvious is out of the way, lets compare PS4 version to a £320 PC. Or the PS3 version to a £180 PC.
I doubt a £320 PC could run this game at any resolution...
PC gamers usually have jobs
@ Perjoss Why dont most of them buy their games legit then?
@Spartacus10 There is a large amount of pirates, true but Steam and other digital distributors continue to grow at a rapid pace, Steam gained 25 million active account in less than a year (125 million total right now) If companies didn't make money then they wouldn't put their games on the PC, fact is PC Gaming is growing and more and more games are coming to it.
That's what i was just thinking. @Vegamyster Of course Steam makes a lot of money almost all their games are $1 - $30 for a new game. If console games were $30 new all stores and sites would make a killing.
@Spartacus10 They do. There is absolutely no need to steal games on PC, there are a ton of services that offer dirt cheap games, not just Steam, you have GOG, Indie Royale, Humble Store and their fantastic bundles. Right now on Steam they don't even have one of their seasonal sales going on but there is a ton of games for sale at 75% and 80% off. Humble Store has Alien Isolation for £10 right now.
Who cares. I'd rather the consoles have been an extra $200 and got a faster gpu/cpu and not resort to sub 1080p and sub 60fps all the time.
This isn't a value comparison. It's simply a visual comparison. Of course a $399 (new) pc would be awful.
