In that screenshot check Videogameszone compared the new PS3 version to the Xbox 360 version of GTA 4: Episodes From Liberty City.
...don't care any more. Where's GTAV already.
Where's GTAV : London already
It also would be bad ass if they got some the cast from snatch to voice the characters. And use that same kind of story telling as well.
A similar storyline to snatch or lock stock would be amazing! Vinnie Jones cameo for the win :)
I dont want GTA to go Europe, Vice City FTW son!
A year later and R* not only can't make the PS3 version look better but they can't even make look as good as the 360 version from a year ago. If you're a gamer that's up on news about the gaming industry and you willingly go out and buy these games at full price on the PS3 then you are a sucker.
Same game, same engine, same old comparsion. Booooring!
MESSAGE TO ALL GTA HATERS: gtfo and get a life, you guys hate GTA4 , but you shouldn't post this on every freaking gta article, jeez... u guys are worse than that PC-fanboy pandamobile who bashes the consoles in every goddamn article I advise you haters to buy saints row 2 instead.
Dynamic weather cycles makes these sorts of comparisons difficult. The difference between the two versions is miniscule as it was two years ago with GTA4. The Pc version might have been nasty to run if you didnt have a quad, but if you did/do, it looked amazingly better than the consoles
GTA4 was really bad, I even liked the GTA PSP ports to PS2 alot more... Vice City and San Andreas are the best!!!
I would've been more satisfied with a remade San Andreas for the current gen console than I was with GTAIV.
Looks noticeably crisper on 360
who said they WERE "trying to make it look better on ps3"? It's an expansion pack. They're not going to upgrade much of anything if at all. It's GTA 4 with new characters and missions. That's it. They did make gameplay improvements regarding checkpoints and the like...but they're not going to overhaul the engine for an expansion pack. It looks JUST LIKE GTA4 did for ps3... shocking!
I always had such a hard time deciding which was the best version of this game. PS3 has lower res but more aliasing but the higher res 360 looks more dirty, jaggy and fake. PS3 looks great at night, evenings, early morning and when its raining. 360 looks best at high noon and mid afternoons. Frame rate is alot better on the 360 but theres tonnes of pop in. Everything is a trade off and I still dont know between the two. Luckily trophies decided it for me.
it uses GTA IV game so you might as well compare that game as you will get same results this is really clutching straws.
just like the game.
did a test me self the guy has not got ps3 on full and both look same
im not sure if wot your saying is butt hurt or damge control?maybe a bit of both. im just messin with ya.seriously..at this point does anyone actually care? i just looked at the screens.they both look very good.
ya no what i cant wait to see if the getaway is coming Only e3 can tell
I clearly remember IGN and a bunch of other gaming sites that stated the PS3 version of GTA 4 was slightly better than the 360 version a good while ago, way back when the game was first released and reviewed. I'm sure can't it be any different with the Episodes from Libert City. And before anyone thinks I'm starting a war, just go back and check the IGN GTA 4 review. From these screenshot comparisons, I think the PS3 version looks slightly better anyway.
Yeah, this definitely depends on what brand of goggles you where, Sony or MS. But with your low bubble count I would assume you wear MS brand, no?
He felt the color palate that they used on the PS3 and the smoothing affects made if feel more real if I remember correctly. I understand the 360 version had some terrible pop-in problems but some sites liked the brighter colors. I'm sure that, like usual, the differences between the two were so minor that you'd never notice while playing the game. You can kinda see what Sam Houser was talking about in these shots above. The 360 version has a higher level of contrast and feels more like a video game. When you look at the colors of the PS3 version, the way the light effects things you can certainly see it feels softer and more natural. I think both versions of the game did a great job though. Despite all the haters, I agree with the critics. GTA4 was an amazing game that I think was worthy of all the praise it received. That being said, by the end I had invested so many hours into Liberty city that it was starting to get a little old at the end. I might pick these levels up one day but it'll most likely be at the bottom of a used game bin.
I've done two 100%'s on the PS3, 95.25% on the 360 (installed). What are the differences? Way more pop-in on the 360, but a better framerate there too. That's about it.
I dont know man the Lighting in the 360 version looks better. Just take a look at the second picture and you will notice that the street lights on the PS3 are almost non-existent.
You must be on crack. The PS3 version is Sub-HD and also lacks anti-aliasing.
That's true man... A couple of sites said that the PS3 version was better but it wasn't true.
OP is right. If you're disagreeing then you're full of it. The GTA4 was generally better quality on the PS3 but it's DLC is clearly not to the same standard on the PS3 and I have no clue why gamers would support R*'s DLC of GTA4 on the PS3 when it is obviously not even on par with the quality of the 360 version from a year ago.
I read the reviews of GTA 4 and IGN, Games Radar, 1UP and a few others all stated that the PS3 version looked slightly better in their opinion and thats a fact. I'm not gonna provide you with the links for proof, you all should know how to google something by now. However that dont mean the PS3 version is necessarily better as a general matter of fact. You guys have personal views. If you prefer the 360 version and think it looks better then thats fine, there is nothing wrong with that. You dont need to get all emtional about it when people provide you with documented facts. I thought GTA 4 looked very good on the PS3 and thats all that mattered to me. I'm just looking forward to this PS3 Liberty City episodes and from the reviews I've read about it so far, I'm told that the PS3 Episodes are graphically fine and on the same level with the 360, I have not heard otherwise. If anyone has then let us know. These screenshot comparisons dont always prove anything, unless you've played them and seen them for yourself. EDIT: Or maybe the 360 crowd in here are feel betrayed and hurt by the fact that PS3 owners are now getting ther precious so-called "exclusive" GTA 4 episodic DLC/content that they boasted and bragged about for so long. How do you make yourselves feel better? You bash the PS3 DLC and you aint even physically seen it play. Well dont blame us guys, blame your masters Microsoft for not paying more money to Rockstar. It seems like even $50 million werent enough, sorry ;-) EDIT: Check out this comparison, it's better than this one, much better. I dont think there is much difference between the two versions after seeing this: http://gamevideos.1up.com/v...
and that is a fact.
debunking of the 640p lie: http://www.vgchartz.com/for... look at the screenshots yourself, it's the same resolution, even rockstar stated the pS3 is 720p NATIVE those guys @ beyond3D can't be trusted
Gamespot said the 360 version of GTA 4 was better and from seeing screenshots, it does seem that way. This dlc is brilliant and I recommend it to anyone who wants a great sandbox experience.
Just as the reviews stated the 360 version was better and as these screenshots show. I could really care less though, GTA sucks anywho.
In your opinion it sucks but imo, GTA IV is one of the best games ever made. Look at the average scores of all GTA games starting with 3 and they're all above 9.5. If that's not impressive. What the hell is?
DO we really have to do this everytime a multiplatform game(in this case dlc) comes? Its getting ridiculous people
the episodes where better than gta IV
The Ballad of Gay Tony was better because it was going back to GTA's routes of over the top action but Lost and damned was rubbish. I think the original story of Nico Bellic was amazing.
I too enjoyed the DLC episodes better. The mid mission checkpoints, better weapons and vehicles, mission themselves were more action packed and epic plus they finally added back in the TANK!
Videogamezone sucks in taking pics for gaming comparisons.
HAHAH EVEN THE dlc is still suub hd compared to the 360 version! loool it still runs on sub hd+blurry texture on the ps3 hardware after all these years ! i wonder how red dead redemtion will look on the ps3 as it uses the same engine and is made by the same devs ! it will deff run low rezz on the ps3 as we are seeing in these comparison screens compared tothe 360 hardware! looks like when a game is technically brilliant the ps3 hardware fails !FACT BBUT When its a linear scripted experience with game engines made specifically for the ps3 taking up to 5 years to develop the game engines (killzone2/uncharted )the ps3 shines LOL alan wake is the 1st on 360 games to use this sony tatic and that game graphically! and scope dwarf any ps3 linear games > also i would say halo reach tho its not a completety new engine made from scratch for the 360 ,when released the sp graphics will dwarf most ps3 titles .
Waaahahaha, I just love it when fanboys talk complete and utter crap all the time
i bought the episodes from liberty city for the 360 and one thing i noticed was buildings appearing right in front of my while flying a helicopter. i cant remember this happening in the ps3 version of gta 4 but whether or not it does it with the new dlc im not sure.
They had an extra year on PS3 and they still cant make it look a little bit better. I hope GTA5 is a PS3 exclusive so its not held back by Xbox360.
I doubt they did any extra work on the engine or specifically PS3/PC code. In fact I'd imagine the DLC was ported months ago to allow the team to get to work on the up coming titles. It's probably been sat on a HDD just waiting for the exclusive deal to come to an end.
held back by xbox 360? you mean The 360s 720p and 30 FPS against PS3s 640p and 25 FPS?? Or what do you mean? Or do you mean the game itself? story and so on.. lol
All i have to say is look at PS3 exclusives (GOW3, Uncharted, Heavy Rain, Killzone 2, GT5) and then look at Xbox 360 exclusives (Halo, Gears, Forza. Look at the graphic differences on these games as theres nothing holding the ps3 back. But then look at GTA4 which both look the same with small differences. Then you can see whos holding back who. @below i think we will be seeing this happen a lot more often as developers are starting to warm to PS3s architecture. Also like Crysis 2.
final fantasy 13,, xbox360 runs at 576p and ps3 running on a native 720p(1080p cut-scenes) lol
Actually i had this game for both ps3 and xbox 360.Framerate was alot better on 360,and it looks so washed out on ps3.And antialiasing is gone on ps3.I know uncharted 2 looks awesome,but on this xbox 360 is a lot better.
but it still makes no sense "I know uncharted 2 looks awesome,but on this xbox 360 is a lot better." was the last part of your sentence, when the CRACK started to work for your buzz...lol...... because you obviously believing that uncharted would look better on the 360...... dont chase the dragon dude...nobody catches it.....lol (south park)
Wow The PS3 version came out a fair amount of time after the Xbox 360 version And yet the Xbox 360 version still looks noticeably different? haha ouch.
Not really, like I said above, I doubt R* did any further engine/code refinement, and from a sole PS3 owners perspective, one who wanted this DLC, the fact they actually get to play it now, even though up until recently branded "exclusive" should out weight the differences. Plus bare in mind 90% of people won't even know about them.
Leave it up to Fishy for always having a good excuse. lol
Hey, even if I disagree with Fishy he is still one of the most legit, genuine and non bias people on N4G so I always got respect for what he says.
I played it on the 360. Ali, cheers.
I wont be buying this dlc. My interest in this game is loooong gone. (goes and plays GOW3)
OMGZ little to no real difference between the 2 versions, ooooh nooooo the sky is falling what will we all do.
I can't believe people still care about this game, I let my friend borrow it over a year ago and I still haven't bothered to go get it.
Can't wait for the release here in Europe (16th). Rockstar = king of open world gameplay.
in my opinion just cause 2 is alot better
Er, no - rockstar made a great world but for gameplay? no - better off in other games, maybe just cause2, red faction guerilla.. I still have the disc on rent and i've not even touched the second ep yet - too bored by the first..
@midgard227 In my opinion Just Cause 2 is the GTA for 12 year olds.
??????????? for 12 year olds because theres no sex and cursing? lmao for one thing ur completley free in just cause, second the gameplay is actually fun and the physics are great. as unrealistic JC2 is its just plain fun to mess around in. GTA is just boring and in my opinion more immature since having sex in the back seat and making the car bump is sorta stupid and makes kids chuckle. if u like ur slow moving, no military,no parachute and dildoe wielding characters thats fine, enjoy i had more fun playin the just cause demo than playing the full game of GTA4 gta 2 and 3, san andreas were the best gta's imo @CEYKAAY yeah the story is good in gta, and balls in JC2 lol, i just meant in fun factor, well opinion is opinion and its ur own opinion that counts most right? so stick by it and enjoy what u enjoy
Rockstar games have always been about interesting characters, settings and humor. Wether it's GTA or the upcoming RDR. Just Cause focusses more on blowing up things and "kewl stuff u can do!!1". Ok maybe my statement before was a little prejudging, just saying JC is not my type of game.
I say this because R* already said working with DVD was trouble and that the next GTA would be way bigger than IV, that and Sandbox don't go to well with multiple disc, I think its nearly impossible to have to switch disc just to go across town, last R* said the original PS time exclusive contract was ready from the start but Sony took to long trying to make it a permanent exclusive. So chances are, 360 owners may have to pick a PS3 or for multi owners get the PS3 version. Unless your a die hard M$ fanboy and it hurts your pride to even think that.
The publisher (TakeTwo) won't let Rockstar do it. They need the money and can't afford to miss out on 20-30 million potential buyers. The next GTA absolutely WILL BE developed to lowest common denominator, in this case the 360. Selling 5 million copies of a great PS3 game vs. selling 10 million copies of an OK multi-platform game - which would you prefer if you were Take-Two and Rockstar management? (I don't need to remind you that they are in this for profit, not love of games)
i agree with u except the last part. devs go into their field for love of games so if it was up to them it wud be for the love of games, now their boss, thats a different story, bosses/ceo's w/e only want money lol
You're right about the developers, they certainly don't do it for money - I still can't believe how little these people are paid. Sadly, these decisions are often not up to them. A team could be working on a game for one system and the management will decide to bring in another team to develop on the other - and that's the best case scenario. Worst case - it can end up like Bayonetta. SEGA took the 360 game and gave it to an outside developer to convert to PS3, the original development team had nothing to do with it. Result? A really $#!tty PS3 port. Now I'm playing FF13 and I'm really convinced that the reason they made the game so linear is because of DVD9 shortage of space. Well, that and to attract new players to the series by dumbing it down, screwing the hardcore series fans in the process. This is just my opinion, I don't have any facts to prove it.
...RockStar can ram this DLC up their @SSES!!! ;-D I am NOT getting it. + I like GTA Games but RockStar(like they give a dam) ;-D your slowly losing a Loyal PlayStation Fan(i.e me) + Any timed DLC i won't buy from no one now. I am NOT waiting for DLC??? F-U!!! Game companies!!! ;)
oooooh somebody throw the rattle out of the pram. bahaha.your comment has made my day.
PS3 was probably set to "Full". It sometimes makes everything bright. Besides that, GTA 4 <<<<< Just Cause 2. :D
