GearNuke: "New GTA V update is now live on PS4 and Xbox One."
Could of at least listed the changes.
Well..yeah... Anyway, is it me or are we soon going to be consuming more time downloading updates rather than playing actually working games?
PS4 does it all when I'm not playing anyways, so... no.
Yeah I know I was talking in general, while I do like this auto-download thing my HDD drive is filling fast so I guess all these 2, 3 Gb 'updates' won't stay unnoticable for long now won't they?
Could HAVE damnit!
They better fix the 1.08 downgrade.
I can't tell the difference, but it does seem smoother in a fully packed city online now though
These downgrades are typically so miniscule they don't affect anything other than the smallest details. Just wait for the PC version, if it's that much of a loss.
So, the patch 1.08 definetly downgrades the graphics??
Why? The framerate is much better, and the difference in visuals isn't noticeable unless you just stop and really stare at details.
Actually its very noticeable.. you must not pay attention.
Honestly, if you care at all about graphics get a damn PC. The console version of GTA5 is jaggy as hell with awful LODs. It is bad they made LODs even worse if that was even possible. OMG. They really should at LEAST fix that ftlog. Start getting used to open world games looking like trash on a 400 dollar machine with off the shelf parts. It's either that or they run like complete ass when they are last-gen games like this.
If they're just going to downgrade the visuals, what was the point of re-buying the game on PS4? A lot of the new detail has been removed in the 1.08 update. Sure the framerate is better now but there are noticeable differences in the visuals and they should at least give the player the option to choose the original visuals or improved framerate.
I heard on Gaf that 1.09 only fixed the car deformation physics and not the POM/AF and other issues. But Rockstar is aware of it. https://support.rockstargam...
Good to know. I was playing today, for around 3 hours, doing nothing but walking around and looking at the visuals. The most glaring of issues, is the pop in and out of cars. It happens at about half the distance it used to and in a more random nature. LOD draw is, easily, 1/4 of what it used to be. It draws just feet in front of you, whereas before it was about 10-15 feet. Also, there is pop in of certain high res textures, mainly on the larger metal power poles. I also noticed quite a bit more aliasing at closer distances. There was aliasing before, but not to the extent it is now. The aliasing solution seems to do a great job with AA on closer objects, but drops off almost exactly where LOD ends. Other than that, it still looks good with a fairly solid framerate.
Yep, they literally copied the one sentence of text from the PS4's "update history" section and made it an article.
makes no difference, it's a great looking game anyway. games like this are best played on consoles anyway
It's a great game on consoles, sure, but why do you say "games like this are best played on consoles"? All the past GTA games play great on PC.
What exactly makes it better to play on a console?
Fact that HE plays them on consoles, i suppose xD
It better be a major improvement to online because the servers last night were more unstable then a schizophrenic feminist off their meds. C'mon Rockstar you sold 45 million+ copies and made well over $2.5 billion, use some of that money for servers and employees. Kinda hard to enjoy heists when its a lag fest and the connection drops. Not on my end since every other game on my consoles and PC work fine. There are no excuses for why these issues got worse this long after launch.
So will gtao work after this update ?......ive given up with it due to"unknown network error"....it could be so good if it worked.....only done the fleeca heist so far....typical broken next gen garbage imo!!!!!!
we want the graphics to get better not worsen. Also, option to play it at max if frame rate drops then w.e ! i want to feel the realism thats been there and not taken away.
Get a PC. People on console whining about GFX on an open-world game is literally the bottom of the barrel. You are playing on a 400 dollar machine with off the shelf parts.
Cry babies complaining about the graphics being downgraded when the graphics still look good smh
Rockstar Shouldn't downgrade the graphics. It's a remastered afterall right? hmmm...
Rockstar should improve on their Network, i thought it was my internet for some odd reason, which should be impossible but i checked it out, and i am far from the only one having the problem with being kicked out frequently. ( the times changes time from time, sometimes i get kicked out after 10 min, or an hour. As well as i see other gamers getting kicked out as well. It happen to a friend of mine, who live like 5 min away from where i live. he get kicked out as well. Rockstar blames it on our Routers and PS4/XBL Network settings, which tells me they don't wanna bother with it. It's something they should fix, cause getting kicked out, just encouraging me to play another game instead. I give a fuck about Car physics if i can't fucking play the game undisturbed.
