In a matter of days, Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released on current gen consoles i.e. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The new versions will have updated visuals, resolution and better graphics overall but that is to be expected. The PS4 and Xbox One have  tons of memory in them so the amount of challenges that Rockstar might have faced while porting must have drastically reduced compared to the ones they faced while developing the game on PS3 and Xbox 360.

As a homage to one of best games of last generation, a user from Reddit has compiled a collection of stunning environmental screenshots from the last gen version of GTA 5. It’s almost unbelievable that Rockstar were able to achieve this feat on consoles that were seriously under powered in 2013. The PS3 had just 256MB dedicated to games and the Xbox 360 had 512MB shared between the GPU and CPU.

All of the screenshots below are in-game and according to the user only in-game filters were applied. Quite amazing, right?

    Yes and Hello PC! 4K resolutions and 60+fps with MODS that will make it play and look even better than on the PS4. Poor Sony.

      PC gamers: most obnoxious people on earth .

      I don’t even think this guy’s a PC gamer. I think he’s just a mad Xbox fanboy hiding behind the PC to troll. Look how he only focuses on attacking Sony and not consoles in general.

      PC gamers seem to only have a soft spot for Nintendo when it comes to consoles.

      Funny, we both thought that same thing. Yeah, this dumb behind thinks he’s smart. But his nonsense is obvious.

    • Starman

      And you both are wrong , because they’re always pitting PS4 up against the PC is why people use PS4 as an example it’s supposed to be close to pc and 50% more powerful than xb1 …when xb1 performs better with multiplat games … There you have it … PS4 sucks and PC looks great but under performs …way too buggy XB1 FTW !

      He’s not a PC gamer, he’s a ms fanatic pretending to be a PC gamer to fool people and take shots at Sony. He’s obsessed with Sony. I think Sony killed his father.

    • Guest

      And X1. Poor MS.

      can you take a picture of your rig, and show us your graphic settings at 4k, genius ?

      it’s a miracle rockstar is doing gta5 for pc. when we know that some call of duty games sell above 20 million copies on consoles, and only 300’000 on pc, i really hope the pc version will require a permanent online connection to work, as a copy protection.

      you and the 9 guys that opvoted you, 2 days before the pc release, you will be refreshing the page of your favorite torrent website, hoping and waiting until an iso copy is released.

      you guys must be really young and pure, and virgin, to expect everybody will believe that all of you guys have 4k monitors at home, and 5000$ pc rigs, with ddr4, intel extreme editions and triple titan systems. of course.

      so, again, 16yo boy, grab your phone, and take a pic of your screen settings, and post it here. if you don’t do that, you will die at 40yo, still virgin.
