Gamesradar:GTA IV: 360 vs PS3 Graphics shootout - which console will take the prize?

Joe McNeilly reports:

''We've played both console versions of GTA IV, and took the following video from the opening scene. We captured the raw video in uncompressed 720p, with no post-processing to either stream. Shown side-by-side, it's quite difficult to tell the difference between the two versions. Only a highly trained eye can see the subtle shifts in color, the minor variations in shadow detail. Our conclusion: buy the one for the console you own. If you're lucky enough to have both in your living room, your decision will have to be based on whether or not you want to pay Microsoft for Extra Content. The barely perceptible difference will have zero impact on your enjoyment of the game.''

"The barely perceptible difference will have zero impact on your enjoyment of the game."

theKiller4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

but in that 5% the ps3 have more deeper colors(more colors)!

EDIT

but u wont feel the difference if u didnt compare them side by side!!
i think its safe to say if u have 360 then buy that version or else get the ps3 version, if u have both then also 360 version has better advantage because u have the option to get extra and achievements while ps3 will get their trophies in fall(about frame rate and loading times and pop up am still not sure about it about it seems the ps3 have an edge in that also), if u dont have any console yet and thinking to which one u should buy then u should think which games u wanna play after GTA4!!

its not that hard to decide u know!

Fallen_Angel4796d ago

ya a very slight difference in color but nothing anyone would ever really notice unless you are running them side by side like that.

MURKERR4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

but that wasnt gameplay,that was the intro

gameplay is a completely different matter thats where your actions control whats happening in the enviroment around you,thats when unfortunately as been highlighted in numerous reviews one console has worse framerate and pop up which DOES have a massive impact on your experience of the game.

youtube has some videos of the crazy pop up a certain console version has its actually terrible and knowing a certain other console doesnt have that would pi$$ me off big time a patch needs to brought out and soon

MaximusPrime4796d ago

i made my comment because i didnt want to disappointed xbox 360 owners.

sonarus4796d ago

yea that was definitely intro. They should have done a comparable drive thru the city. Why is everyone so scared to do a video comparison. By now i thought we would have seen one from game trailers

shadow_hearts4796d ago

It is almost given

anyone who doesnt notice the difference is a FANBOY

Fragking284796d ago

how would we be dissapointed personally i have all next gen systems and i favor my 360. Even if the ps3 has slightly better colors you have to remeber it not like all of us gamers are running the game on the same tv with different setting so you wouldnt notice any difference. Plus we have 20 hours of exlcusive never coming to ps3 new story branch coming starting in autumn of this year ( $50 million guarantees its never coming to the ps3) . Another thing if ps3 get some sort of dlc that doesnt mean it wont come to the 360 because sony never struck a deal so in all likely hood we'll probably get what your having and more. P.S. i usually dont sound like a fanboy but im tired of hearing people on this ite trying to put down the good things about the 360 version all the while boasting about some minute advantage the ps3 supposedly has.

Sangheili854796d ago

Doesn't HappyNoodle rants sound just like Nasim from a while ago? I mean honestly? It's pathetic when he makes stuff up and continues to copy and paste the same comment in every section that concerns GTA4. Can't you just go to the open zone and leave us gamers alone?

Glad to be a gamer4796d ago

The two games look practically the same. I still not sure on the pop up as the videos we have seen of the 360 version are from pirated versions.

The reviews have said that there is more pop up on the 360 which is obviously down to the fact Ms have not allowed Rock star to use the hardrive to install the game to but i think with the caching the 360 hd does without the install and the faster speed of the dvd drive there should be minimal difference.

Therefore it comes down to six axis,slightly less pop up or dlc.
I choose Dlc as this is gonna be game of the year most likely so im definately gonna want to expand it.

Going down for the midnight launch for this one hope everyone manages to get there copy and to all A GOOD NIGHT AND ENJOY THE ROLLER COASTER WHILE IT LASTS.

ATLRoAcH4796d ago

....face goes between the two versions at one point in the video, you can really see what they meant by warmer coolers. Niko's face has a more realistic look on PS3 in my opinion. His face on the 360 side seemed pale. The rest of the video wasn't really good at comparing. That was the only moment that was good enough to compare.

sonarus4796d ago

Well i choose the ones where my friends are which is psn

But the bottom line is its hard for me to commit my purchase to a 360 version based solely off DLC when i don't know what the DLC is and how extensive it will be. So far the hints point at extra missions and after spending probably 60hrs in the game do i really want to pay for an extra 10hrs? If the game is really that good, somewhere along the line, i will probably be playing through the game again anyway so i doubt i will miss the 10hrs much.

IGN said the PS3 version has FAR less pop in and i doubt they were playing on the core units when they made that statement. With that news alone, it makes me more confident of my ps3 choice because before now i thought it would run better on 360 since they weren't showing ps3 footage. At the end of the day the only thing i will be missing from 360 version are awesome achievments

popup4796d ago

This is only going to get worse :( Beyond3d have pixel counted and.... You have to go and see http://forum.beyond3d.com/s...

I still can't decide which one to get myself...

shadow_hearts4796d ago

please dont fall for BEYOND3D/NEOGAF spam

what they are saying is total BS!!!

Firsly a random user captured some OLD GTA4ps3 screens from IGN and started claiming that PS3 version runs at 630P!!!!

then some came up saying PS3 version is better by stretching images of both versions by 400%

None of those TARDS have any realtime image capturing device to DETERMINE the image quality /resolution.

Please dont fall for NEOGAFTARDS/BEYOND3D IDIOTS

GAMESRADAR confirmed that both versions run at 720P NATIVE

FordGTGuy4796d ago

That such things as color depth and brightness can be changed or calibrated on the tv itself.

solidt124796d ago

They both look great, but to be honest with you I can't wait to see how well the SIXAXIS support is in this game.

i Shank u4796d ago

hey look, itsssssss Nasim! (shadow hearts/sammy mantra)

popup4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

I just got it (midnight release in uk) and looking at the PS3 version in a vacuum, its really impressive. Regardless of anything you hear, read, zoomed in pictures and videos or anything else, you will not be disappointed in this game from a technical standpoint. I followed the advice of the reviews and got the version that had (for me) the largest friend base. Forget all the fanboy crap and enjoy the game because whatever comes out of this in terms of details between versions, non of it can make either game better or worse unless you are all just comparing penis sizes.

Let's face it, anyone can buy the 'other console' if the need (or game) really arises so what's the point?

hazeblaze4796d ago

The color thing really comes down to a matter of opinion I think. I like the look of the PS3 version better. But not so much b/c of the color... the better anti-aliasing on the PS3 version does make a pretty distinct difference to me... Looks much sharper. Of course, I wouldn't care if I hadn't seen them side by side though.

shortax4796d ago

then some came up saying PS3 version is better by stretching images of both versions by 400%

He is somewhat doubting the PS3 could be better. That is not nasim

MicroDeath SoftStar4796d ago

whoever created this article is a retard , its obvious you wont see the difference on such a low quality low rez image , its like trying to judge how good the gfx of crysis are on a ipod. anyone that can see a difference is imagining things and only making themselves look stupid . Im not saying they look the same im just saying that we need a high quality video to tell if there is a difference

Surfman4796d ago

the only way to see differences, it's on a tv-hd.

thewhoopimen4796d ago

agreed.

You should've said though, "If they claim its no different in 720p, why release a Quarter VGA video to 'prove' their point?" Where is the 720p video?

Personally I think Gamesradar claim is nonsense. If one platform is better, one platform is better. It's not like other sites have never claimed other 360 multiplat games were better.

InYourMom4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

If you want the non-HD version get the PS3 version or if you want the one that runs in native HD(720p) then get the 360 version.

''We’ve played both console versions of GTA IV, and took the following video from the opening scene. We captured the raw video in uncompressed 720p

However it is clearly evident in the video that PS3 version has MORE STAURATED COLOURS and look more realistic

The Fake Deal4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

You are an idiot,they both run at 720p native you moron,stop spreadig your xbox fanboy BS. Grow up and except it ps3's gta4 is better than xbox's

power of Green 4796d ago

IGN confirmed that after their main review fool lol. What something says on the back of the box doesn't mean sh*t lol.

Most Next-gen games on the back of the box or on your TV sets give a REZ setting doesn't mean anything(upscaling)

shadow_hearts4796d ago

PS3 version is confirmed to run at 720P and is SUPERIOR

"We’ve played both console versions of GTA IV, and took the following video from the opening scene. We captured the raw video in uncompressed 720p".........UNCOMPRESSE D 720P

INYOURDAD dont invent CRAP based on reviews from XBOTS at NEOGAF

Thanks SAMMY_MANTRA for your quotes

GAMESRADAR,IGN,GT and EGM said the same DAMN thing

However 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.)"

It is OVER for XBUTTS and 3 FIX ME

Varsarus4796d ago

Rockstar even told gamespot what the resolutions both versions are at....

"Rockstar also told us at this point that while the game will support 1080p, the game will only run in 720p natively"

http://uk.gamespot.com/ps3/...

Also

"Note: to enable 1080p on the PS3 the user must select custom under display settings on the PS3 dashboard and only tick the 1080p box. This will force the game to boot in 1080p. If the display settings are set to automatic the game will boot in 720p, NOT in 1080p."

pswi604796d ago

if you would take the time to read thru the thread, you would see that the 630p claim is based on a screenshot from IGN that has not been verified to be the actual PS3 resolution.

if the 630p claim is accurate, posters in that thread who have more knowledge than me are saying the 360 version should have been downscaled as well so more post processing could be applied, because the ps3 version is obviously superior.

try reading your own link next time.

InYourMom4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

Nice 23 disagrees and just about every response has to call me a name or insult me. Continuing proving that the PS3 fanboys are the worst fanboys of any system.

Wulan: "We captured the raw video in uncompressed 720p" They captured the video in raw uncompressed 720p. I can capture my black and white SD TV at 720p if I wanted too. That is the capture NOT the native resolution the game is running in. The PS3 can upscale and that appears to be what's happening with GTA.

The same "forum post" is from the same person who did the Halo 3 at 640p that the hypocrites here had no problem accepting as fact and still bring it up in their stupid arguements today. This won't be the only count done so even if you want to deny it, it will be exposed just like Halo 3 was.

Shadow_Hearts: How many account's are you going to make Nasim? You are already using 2 active ones at this moment that I can easily pick out but I wonder how many you are actually using.

The_Fake_Deal: Will see who is an idiot when further counts reveal that this is in fact true. Hang on to those tiny differences with both hands now.

@1.9 below: If you read that forum thread you can also see they used the photos/screen grabs posted and not raw footage to do that dithering test. So it was quickly dismissed. Don't grasp at straws, the PS3 version is better aren't you happy? It only took making it non-HD to do it. =)

"But I don't think its fair to compare screens off a lossy video to lossless shots off the framebuffer. Capture cards and the eventual re-encode would destroy fine dithering details like that."

pswi604796d ago

here is a link to that forum post showing both versions blown up to 400% with the poster saying the 360 version is suffering from "terrible dithering"

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

read it and weep

shadow_hearts4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

Please dont fall for CRAP from BEYOND3D

50DOTCAL --a guy who came up with FAKE DMC4 comparisons before posted that. INYOURDAD he didnt come up with any IMAGES from the PS3 version either

he just USED some images frm IGN of GTA4 version PS3 posted ages ago and came up with that claim

He doesnt have a PS3 in the first place. Neither 50DOTCAL has any image /footage capturing device at 720P. that guy lives in PERU

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

"We captured the raw video in uncompressed 720p, with no post-processing to either stream. Shown side-by-side, it’s quite difficult to tell the difference between the two versions "

ALSO NOTE

If the PS3 version is running at LOW REZ then how come the X360 version ONLY suffers from TERRIBLE DITHERING when STRETCHED to 400% and not the PS3 version

BOTH VERSIONS are confirmed to RUN AT 720P

DONT FALL FOR CRAP

@POWER OF GAYYYYYYYY

If x360 runs at Higher REZ then how come IT SUFFERS from TERRIBLE DITHERING when BLOWN by 400%

DID u even look at the images. X360 version looks like S***

PS3 version is best FOR GTA4

confirmed by nemerous sources

Only blown up by 400%?, lol J/K. You post that but not the replies to that theory that may be bullshots to say the least!.

360 runs at a higher rez...

Its popular opinion(as of now) that the PS3 version came out ontop yet look at how spoiled rabid you people are.
You people are going crazy that people point out things that tarnish the PS3 version a bit or points out PS3 version isn't perfect.
You expect me to believe the media doesn't have *some* agenda with this title when it comes to how its handled? to scave off the backlash PS3 fanboys woulnd inflict if the media had said anything other than they did lol..

EDIT below: re-read what I said I did not express which console only that this heated debate will have people doing dis-honest things.

in that case you debunked your own claim of 630p since that is based off the same lossy screen cap.

so it's good for one argument but not the other....typical fanboy nonsense.

Sorry, I don't mean to come across that way.

I'm just frustrated that people are so blinded by their fanboy biases that they can't just put their differences aside and enjoy an incredible game. Who cares about a little AA here or a pop-in there? The game is INCREDIBLE, on both platforms. Which means MORE people get to enjoy it.

This is an *awesome* day for gamers. Not just PS3 owners, or 360 owners, but GAMERS. And I wish people would quit tarnishing it with fanboy bullcrap.

@3.8 Above

Oh God, my ears! I'm melting...melting...it burns my brain...

@Below:

I always thought the PS3 got a bad rap last year, simply because the ports weren't going that well because designing for the PS3 has a huge learning curve - not because the PS3 was inherently underpowered. Because it's clearly not.

For the record, I do think this will be the time in video game history people point to in the future and say "This is when PS3 games starting looking better than 360 games". I just don't think the differences are important enough, in the case of GTA4, to choose one version over the other unless you own both consoles and EVERYTHING ELSE is equal. Even a controller preference should outweigh these minor graphical differences.

The Wood4796d ago (Edited 4796d ago )

the graphics difference may be a minor BUT the pop up and FR issues are something else. My point. When sOme review sites mentioned fr issues with ps3 versions and deducted marks, those issues were never significant enough to warrant the .x less in marks that they gave. Most of the time it never changed the way the game played. Some people could see that as a convenient shift of the goalposts. Please can you two say the same thing when its the other way around as its only fair.

i agree. it looks like the bias against the PS3 still lingers. one losing points while the other doesn't. it makes them look unprofessional. especially when most reviewers say the other had worse FR issues.

"The barely perceptible difference will have zero impact on your enjoyment of the game."

Could GTA be THE GAME to end this stupid fanboy war? Why can't we just be GAMERS? It would be so much better for everyone. Just imagine:

Xbox fan (not fanboy!): Hey I saw the latest Uncharted 2 screens, they were amazing. Do you think I can play a little bit?

Sony fan: Only if we play together Gears 2.

Nintendo fan: But after that I will smash you both in Smash Bros.!

Why can't we enjoy the great games, and laugh together about the sh*tty ports (but also the sh*tty games :D)

iamtehpwn4796d ago

there could be A pixel of a different color on the other console, and fanboys will be like, "OMFG WE WIN!!!!"

Although the PS3 version edges the 360 out in Texture Pop-up, in small environments as such, they're identical.

That is how it used to be back in the day of Atari, Colecovision, Sega/Nintendo/NEC(turbo grafx 16), Atari Jaguar, and well all the way up unto the Playstation 2/Dreamcast/N64 showdown and glutants of the internet :)

People were like what game do you have and when can I come over to try it and will you come over and play multiplayer .. on a 15" SDTV and would absolutely enjoy it.

Would I go back to that style of gaming.. for memories sake but would I give up this generations games.. heck no.

I had high hopes for this gamer zone to be a higher level of discussion but find myself sticking to the least amount of comments on topics due to the fact I can careless to get in the middle of talking which system is better. I have my opinions but I prefer gaming and I will play a game on any machine that will play games for the sake of being able to play games.

Although your statement did bring me into this topic and I applaud your gaming ethics :)

But why can't it be like those times? Todays videogaming has become really important and wide spread.
It is sad that instead of talking about games, people prefer to discuss about sale numbers, this game is better on.... and so on. Even the medias have noticed this behaviour (in more than one review I read something like "and for the fanboys, the game is actually better...").
I mean why are we all here on N4G? Isn't it because we have one and the same passion called videogames??

Does a game has to be on a specific console to be a good game? Does it need an excellent "metacritics score" to be a good game? The answer to these questions is: NO! A "good game" is always subjective, IMHO. I know enough people who will not buy GTA as they do not like it. And I know others who enjoyed playing LAIR. So just play what you like, and let the others play what they like.

PS: Sorry for my english, it isn't my main language (funny how I learnd it manly through english videogames :D)

Understandably I too wonder why it can't be that way anymore.
I like having the metacritic only to see what is the average of the gaming reviews. It isn't the deciding factor of whether or not I get a game. Obviously since I have Lair and actually enjoy it, the main annoyance is the cutscenes losing track of my target I was about to kill. Metacritic is a tool and nothing more, but like any tool it can be used in the wrong way and taint the actual intent of the tool.

I think it's an instinct in especially men to defend their honor and justify their means of why they are doing it. In this particular case it happens to be people and a plastic machine that plays games.

Are the 2 systems that you can play this game on different? Yes they are and everyone has personal preference which is why there is always choice. That choice is for everyone to decide and once someone commits to that system they feel they need to show why their choice is best. Honestly from their perspective the choice they made is the best choice for them. Unfortunately there are people that no matter the consequences have to show why the system is the best choice and they won't back down.

The stem of the problem is "money". That money is what drove internet sites and magazines to form these groups and pit them against each other in order to get more hits on their website or more magazines sold.

But I digress. You make a valid point and hopefully gamings roots can return in some fashion or another to where people are happy about gaming and getting to play the games on whatever system they own or don't own.

serveral sources including Gamersradar already said the PS3 had faster loading times, less items disappearing,and more vibrant colors.

Even from that carefully chosen video, I still see the PS3 version a little better.
