Tech Analysis: Grand Theft Auto 5 on PS4

Rockstar Games typically steers well clear of E3, but it did choose to make a big announcement to coincide with the event this year - the reveal of the much-anticipated next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto 5, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in the autumn. Clocking in at just over a minute, the trailer takes us through a large number of environments across Los Santos and beyond, illustrating the changes and improvements made to the visuals.

Really annoyed they didn't say anything about this until E3, was waiting since before PS4 even launched for news on port, but better late then never I guess. Def worth picking up at some point though never played it before and those graphics look pretty good.

bought it on the ps3... will buy it again and take my time with it once again... whew online will be great OMG

showtimefolks1589d ago

I plan on also taking my time and trying majority of side activities. Can't wait. Bought it on ps3 and its a day one on ps4 also


if you haven't played GTA5 before than it should be on top of your fall 2014 games list. Last gen consoles held back the real potential of GTA5, now on next gen along with PC. This is the real GTA5

As much as the 360 and PS3 held back GTA V, it still looks pretty freakin' incredible on that old hardware and better than most current gen games, in my opinion.

And GTA V on the new consoles is nothing. Just imagine a GTA game built from the ground up to harness the power of the PS4/XB1. I can't even imagine how incredible that will look. Hopefully we don't have to wait until 2018!

Although, I imagine a new Red Dead will be Rockstar's true open world debut for the new consoles.

From the article:
"Rockstar could very easily have updated the game with a simple resolution increase and a performance jump, but all the indications are that the studio has decided to go the extra mile and deliver a significantly upgraded experience"

There's a reason why Rockstar is the no 1 developer in the world (this is coming from a Naughty Dog massive fan)its because they never skimp on anything no matter how small and insignificant. Everything they release has to be absolutely optimized to what is technologically and humanly possible at the time, and lots of time it takes them to get it out of course.

With GTA5's extensive re-working to next gen they paved they way for other Studios who consider remastering titles to follow suit.

What I mean is that we now have an example of what a true remaster title should be. Not just a rezzed up port.

The last of us remaster is of-course the second example but the scale difference and the amount of work required for GTA 5 is on another level in my humble opinion. Then again Rockstar is more than 3 times the studio ND is so there you have it...

From the looks of it Rockstar delivers once again. Well maybe I can forgive them for the mess GTA 4 was..hmm not just yet.

PS: Who's anxious for a GTAV PS4 vs Watchdogs PS4 comparison? I know I am!

They should of just waited for the PS4/Xbox 1 anyway I will be one of these people who won't be buying it again because in my opinion I enjoy GTA SA/VC a lot more then I enjoyed GTA 5

You missed out. I am STILL playing this game....and on a daily basis. It's the best GTA IMO.

I have to say, having seen the video comparisons between the PS3 and PS4 versions It is a much more impressive remaster than I gave it credit for. Everything about it looks impressive.

The character models could still UAE some touch up, but the overall jump to next gen gave the game some seriously impressive visuals.

Still won't bother getting it though. I'm not a GTA fan.

Adding in that last sentence made your entire comment irrelevant. You admire the game for it's impressive leap in graphical performance, then you say you won't bother getting it because your not a GTA fan? Sounds like you're fishing with troll bait.

Give the game a shot. You might like it.

ZombieKiller1584d ago

Because he has an N4G account and that's what it's for. Didn't know you weren't allowed to comment on a game you haven't played.

Sometimes I think comment/forum police are worse than people that "needlessly comment"

Perfect example right here:
0P-Tigrex has less of a relevant thing to say than the person he asked about.

My point, live and let live. Stop complaining about cluter in something with limitless space.

showtimefolks1589d ago

the game is possibly 4 plus months from release so they will have plenty of my time to fix whatever needs fixing. This is R* after all

also if i was you i would gibe GTA5 a chance, its unlike prior GTA games.

0P-Tigrex1589d ago (Edited 1589d ago )

I'm blown away by the added foliage and level of detail/textures/lighting in the game. Can't believe it's getting this big of a graphical enhancement. I'm glad I waited to buy this on Ps4.

I seen a cat jump off the wall on the franklin scene lol

Hazmat131589d ago

the upgrade on next gen consoles (current gen) is impressive as hell. but on PC? my face just melts... haha any way you play lets hope the upgrade was worth on what it seems to be a 60 dollar release.
