GTA 5 PS3 vs GTA 4 PC accurate graphics comparison

GTA 5 takes it to an altogether different level.

Page 1 Page 2 Page 3

We have a fantastic screenshot comparison for you that drives home the point of GTA 5′s visual superiority. A user from the GTAForums has uploaded some amazing screenshot comparisons between the PC version of GTA 4 and the PS3 version of GTA 5. GTA 4 is running at 1080P with only the HD Trees Mod.

I have to say it’s pretty clear to the naked eye which game is superior visually. GTA 5 is slated to release next year for the PS3 and Xbox 360, and is shaping up to be a fantastic game.

Also, if you are not aware of what GTA 5 is all about, here are the entire Game Informer details that we have put together, and it contains almost everything you would want to know about the game at this stage. We also reported yesterday that players should expect Hollywood style missions from GTA 5. There’s a new trailer coming out as well tomorrow, so stay tuned to GB.

Here’s the screenshot comparison. The images above are from GTA 5. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

    yeah, but game console graphics will always be better than PC graphics because if they weren’t, you’d need a hench graphics card.
    also, you’re dealing with highly tunes GTA 5 screens made by R* to impress, and comparing that to in-game images from GTA 4 which were made by a fan and hasn’t been fine tuned. though, don’t mistake me for saying the graphics will be the same, i know they’ll be different

      Thats on a gtx 480 released april 2010. @ above 1080p. Even wiiU is behind.

      “yeah, but game console graphics will always be better than PC graphics because if they weren’t, you’d need a hench graphics card. ”

      so your basically saying consoles are better than low end pc. ok good point.
      If you want to play above 1080p why not have to pay more? You won’t have this feature in games till probably 2019 with ps5.

      Also ur console graphics get better at the cost of what? being in 720p? poor AA and draw distance? 25-30fps? lol dude.

      I be henching my graphics card every day man. I don’t know where you been, I find a thorough graphic card henching improves my gaming performance. I learned how to hench from the best too!

    If anything the game looks better because of its new colour palette.

  • Karamba

    Be you the game will not end up looking like that. They never do

    I bet my one of my hands if PS3 or Xbox have those graphics at all, if those weren’t enhanced with Photoshop or Post Processing I’ll be mind blown. The current gen consoles are DX9 and they aren’t capable of most of those effects/ filters. That is DX10 and most likely DX11 or a big manipulation in Photoshop. Also look to those water effects, DX9 can’t handle those kind of shaders.

    I wanna see Rockstar confirming that those screens are from Xbox360 or PS3 and mostly see them when it comes out.

    In the first pic on page two, the character is driving a motorcycle under an overpass, which looks amazing, but the overpass casts no shadow. And, it isn’t just off to the side because the bike’s shadow reveals that the sun is relatively at its peak. But, perhaps I just can’t correctly understand the physics presented in the picture or it is from an alpha stage screen shot

    lol the wii u is more powerful then 360 ps3 idiot

  • gamerx

    You stole these screens off someone’s post at GTA forums, and didn’t give them any credit.

    gamingbolt, when will your writers and your website stop being pieces of shit?

    People bang on about the PC, but graphics on the 360 and PS3 are no way inferior. It was on the cards that GTA 5 would look better than GTA 4, but I bet the actual game doesn’t look as good as them screenshots. On top of that, it’s all down to what TV you’re using and how it’s set up.

      Imagine what will happen to GTA V…

    • PineappleKush

      with oculus rift, myo and virtuix omni.. eventually – fuck some shit uuuup! ._o

  • Lougerrig

    More often than not the bottom image is far more aesthetically pleasing. Crispness is one thing, but it seems Rockstar went way overboard with the rendering in GTAV.

    The game does not look like that, sorry to tell you guys that think it will. I’m playing it now (and before people start to flame I’ve already fully paid for my PS3 version that I’ll be picking up Tuesday). It’s 7 y/o hardware and it shows. But the game if super fun, voice acting is fantastic and the amount of shit that’s in the game is just nuts. You won’t run out of shit to do for a LONG time. Hell, if/when it drops for PC I’ll be buying it for that and if it does, I’m sure there’ll be a PS4/XBO version also that I might pick up. Rockstar clearly leads the gaming world in open world game development. And just a heads up, there’s an app you’re going to want to DL for your real life phone called iFruit, it has to do with the game. I won’t tell you why to avoid any very minor spoilers.
