Rockstar have been on a roll recently with Grand Theft Auto 5. Not only did they confirmed that the PS4 version will run at 1080p on but they also added an awesome first person view to the upcoming remaster.
But... it is still a remaster. No matter how you package it Rockstar, this is not a next gen GTA. More a 1.5 than 2.0 :) One thing I am very happy about though is that I totally skipped this on last gen as I had my suspicions that they would do something like this. Glad that hunch paid off. Happy days!!! Edit: Also just a nitpick but why has the title mentioned Xbox one and PS4 but then in the article they only confirm that the PS4 is 1080p when Im sure that R* has already said that both are. Correct me if I'm wrong. Stealth Trolling hehe.
Yep, didnt get to play GTA 5 either on last gen so kinda pumped up to give this a go. Last gta game i played was San Andreas on the ps2. Damn its been a while.
I have not played it either. :) GTA 4: Ballad of gay Tony was my last GTA game
@hardeepmeghera I didn't play it last gen either, hoping for ps4 version, much as I waited for Tomb Raider to come to current gen. I am going to fully enjoy this...so much. GTA and Far Cry should keep me pretty busy til Bloodborne, The Order, and The Witcher 3 in February.
When you do play it, prepare to be amazed.
A man played it but sold his version once they announced the next gen version and very few had heard about it. Got $40 for it so no big loss especially considering all the milage he got out of the last gen version. Though the share button will be a welcome edition considering just how many freaky moments he had during cop chases or just funny falls lol
Your a smart man!! Did the same😄
WHich man are you talking about?
Such a deceitful move by Rockstar to release this game on PS3 before they even confirmed a PS4 version. How they are marketing it is shameful considering the mess with was GTA Online and how the game will feel exactly the same once the wow factor wares off. Ill wait for 2 years and pick up the PC version cheap for the mods. They are not getting paid the for the same game twice!
I understand what you are trying to say.. but this is business and they have done some big chances to the graphics and they also added 1st person view. Maybe 20%-40% discount for players who already owned the game on PS3/X360 would have been nice hand shake.
@jdaboss Well, that escalated quickly.
The article actually never said it wasn't a remaster, only that it wasn't an ordinary one. I think we can all agree though that it is worthy of current gen consoles, it looks amazing.
How do you know it's a remaster? How do you know they haven't been working on the next-gen version since before the old-gen version even came out? I'm sure they didn't start porting it to the new consoles just last year.
Just like watchdogs hey :) I'm really not trying to hate, I have looked at the vids an all and it ain't no slouch. But it also does not look to be a dedicated next gen effort. More an 1.5 as I mentioned :) Can you imagine what their next offering is going to look like when they don't need to worry about building up from old tech but starting anew! This is going to be epic for me as I haven't played it yet. First time in the history of GTA I didn't buy on release day! It was hard to save for a hunch. Ultimately this is the best thing that could have happened for GTA 5 on new gen hardware. They have done well with all the effort they have put in. Happy Gaming!
i really REALLY hope that they do snow again around xmas. one of my favorite memories about last year was playing this game with the snow. for whatever reason it really put me in the xmas spirit.
Nothing say xmas like killing hoes, robbing banks and trolling the online with a tank!
I'm going to rage at my tv and ask for a refund or a patch if the helicopters still wobble like drunk elephants.
Glad somebody has the guts to tell the truth, this is a re master, i'm sure it's a very good one but it's still the same game as last year which was amazing but still. I suppose if there was dlc included with a whole new storyline that would make it worthy but there's not so far.
I cant wait to play it, been wanting this so much
Id like to read the article, hower this site on mobile is just a mash up of ads! If your on a phone, I wouldn't bother looking
I hate the word remaster. Games that have been ported over the years were not remasters before, but thanks to the Internet they are all considered as the same (WHICH IS TO ME REMASTER IS A NEGATIVE WORD).... just face the facts it's a port with a new visual effects, broader dynamic lighting, new textures, better level of detail, higher resolution and new features. Around 10 years ago, grand theft auto vice city came out for the PlayStation 2. Two years later vice city is ported over to the Xbox with new visual updates, broader lighting, new textures, and higher resolution and was praised by fans being a great port to the next system. I easily spent $120 for Grand Theft Auto and I was and was happy to do it again. when this new version releases, I plan to buy the p4 version and the pc version totaling my costs to over 200 dollars in grand theft auto in within 2 years... I love Grand Theft Auto and in retrospect the most recent "remasters" that came out recently. I love the last of us the upcoming Resident Evil 1 HD the upcoming Kingdom Hearts, Dead or alive 5, the master chief collection. All of these games are goty for me...
"just face the facts it's a port with a new visual effects, broader dynamic lighting, new textures, better level of detail, higher resolution and new features." Lmao what the hell do you think a remaster is? You just defined it down to every detail. A port is just a port. If you've looked at the actual comparisons though, it's not just up-res with GTA. They actually added am entire list of things not available/possible last gen, including playing the entire game in first person. That, is a remaster, not a port.
I don't think you got my point and I'm also well aware to what a remaster is. Without googling can you tell me where the term came from for the gaming community?
its not just a simple a port. a simple port would mean that it would look identical to the old gen. What new features did the xbox had over the ps2 version ? Ps2 to Xbox difference was hardly noticeable imo.
Its 1080p on xbox one too. It was confirmed by R*
Why are you getting disagrees for stating the truth? Rockstatr confirmed its 1080p 30 frames on x box 1. Some people posting at n4g are just not right at all are they!
Because some people can't stand parity. One has to be 1080p and one must be 900p. S/
Rockstar and Bethesda are the only developers I would buy the same game more than once from.
Can't wait to drop another $80 to see some more trees in the distance...
the last of us was a well done remastered. that game looks better than anything i have played on the ps4 so far. haha. cant wait to pick this up. I actually bought this game on the ps3 but only played an hour of it because the ps4 was about to come out.
Then you must not have played much. TLOU was a good game but the graphics were OK. The car ride sequence in the beginning looked borderline terrible with poor lighting, blurry textures and lots of pop-up. (let the disagrees flow but it is the truth) The rest was good but looked like what it was, a rezzed-up PS3 game. Compare that to KZ SF and it isn't even close, KZ blows it away graphically even though the game isn't as good.
The last of us? I played the remaster and completed it. Was my first time playing the game. Visually I don't agree, I think Infamous second son or Destiny has the best visuals on my ps4 so far.
Im more interested in playing online with 32 players instead of 16. I bought my PS4 at launch and never touched my PS3 since then so I didnt play the online much.
PC mods + GTAV 1st person= mind blown
This is how you do a remaster.
Where's my skyrim remaster :(
It's remastered on PC with mods. :)
Why is there parity? Should we all EXPECT the same graphical IQ from two systems with different hardware capabilities? :-/ I'm not a ToolBag. You can eat your own parity remaster, Rockstar...
Because there is NO WAY MS is going to let a high profile game like this look better on PS4. They don't have to even give them money, they could just say that they won't license R* to put the game on xbone unless the resolution is at parity with the PS4. R* wouldn't pass up those sales so...
Lol ps4 can't handle gta 5 open world with 30 players at 1080p 60fps. You need to start living in reality friend. I like my ps4 but I'm not delusional about its capabilities.
People who commented saying they didnt play gta 5 thats a 100% lie no1 can escape rockstars masterpiece!!!!
Not only did they confirm, not: not only did they confirmed. Who's editing this garbage?
There are some weird titles on this list
it looks alright, rather wait for a next gen gta aka gta6
I understand peoples worry of all these remakes. But i think its easier to just avoid the game if we really dont want to. Or get it if we really do. Either way. These companies will continue doing this type of thing. Im just trying to look positive and think....well at least their giving us a choice. They cant steal our money...so if we want to avoid it. Just wait for the next one that we do want. :)
After romping around on Arma 3 on ultra PC seems the ideal choice I hope steamworks is involved at some stage.
Lol @ "Hidden graphical detail", something that's graphical isn't hidden right? XD
