Almost everyone agrees the visual difference between consoles is slight. It doesn't impact the enjoyment of the games for most people. But some people are videophiles and audiophiles, whose idea of fun is knowing if they're getting the maximum technical performance on every spec. DigitalFoundry is catering to them. Nobody's forced to agree with the opinion parts of their articles, but I don't get the denialism about the factual parts. They're technical measurements. People can prove them right or wrong by measuring. Who's doing that? And now, the same author and process that produced pro-360 reviews in the past has produced a pro-PS3 review of L.A. Noire. That doesn't seem biased to me.
You saw an improvement in graphics in the GTA IV Complete Edition for PS3 compared to the original edition for PS3. No one's posted visuals or measurements of that, and Rockstar hasn't claimed it. It's fair for you to say what you saw, and maybe the Complete Edition does look better. I haven't seen it. But when DigitalFoundry makes a comparison, with details and examples, you cite lack of confirmation from Rockstar as a reason not to believe it. So I concede that what I'm saying may mean nothing to you, and that I don't know what claims you'll accept as facts, because you don't seem to have a consistent standard of proof. No disrespect.
For the last time, I gonna say this. There are only two things I consider facts in all of this. One - if Rockstar actually AND offically confirmed to everyone that GTA IV and Red Redemption on the PS3 is not full HD or of slightly lower quality than the 360 version. Two - (well this is nearly a fact, not fully), the conclusion of seeing these games run on the PS3 (and the 360)with my own eyes. Rockstar did not confirm anything of the kind. And my eyes tell me I'm viewing a full HD game. I'm sorry but for me, thats concrete evidence, not the words of some obsure, mr-nobody pixel counter I've never heard of.
You don't have to believe me about the Complete Edition on the PS3 looking better than the original. I won't force you to do so. I know what I've seen, and thats an improvement for sure. If you don't see it I respect that you don't. If you think GTA IV and RDR are sub-HD on the PS3 then fine. I don't believe those claims one bit unless Rockstar says so. Contact them yourself, get an answer and if its what you say it is, then you win hands down. Until then, I have my own reasons for sticking to my views.
