Well, I downloaded gta 5 off psn store, and it looks like absolute crap on my hdtv. Like I literally want to cry lol.

I have a vizio 26" LCD HDTV I got years ago, and everytime a game is not allowed to be played in 1080p, the games look like absolute crap....I tried everything as well as adjusting my tv settings, etc. I was wondering if anyone knows a fix for this or if the problem is my tv in the first place. If it, can you guys send me links to some cheap affordable TVs that will play gta 5 in decent graphics?

Thanks a lot. Here are some images/video of what my game looks like:

Maybe a hdd problem? Maybe it's too slow. Just a guess.

I'm thinking its my tv, cause it does this with all games that don't support 1080p, that's why I was hoping gta 5 would :(, but games like black ops 2 that support 1080p look great.

If anyone knows any TVs for a cheap price, that would also be appreciated thanks. I really wanna play gta 5 to its full potential, not on some

Have you tried turning down PS3 resolution to 720p under settings? That may help.

Well all I want is a tv that won't do this to gta 5 or any other games. As you can see it looks hideous, I just want some decent quality, not expecting top notch 4K TVs etc, just something decent

Yes I have, I unchecked everything but 720p and it still looks bad, keep in mind it never plays in 1080p as the tv just downscales the game to gta 5's native resolution of 720p

Yep

 

Although in the video you posted, I just noticed the aspect ratio is all kinds of messed up. Is that what you're talking about?

26" tv? Hell, people are throwing away TVs bigger than that nowadays. This ain't 1998. My daughter has a TV bigger than that and if I recall correctly, I probably paid less for it at a pawn shop than I did for GTAV. My monitor for my comp is 24'. Not trying to be a dick about it, but technology is so cheap nowadays, even the generic brand "crap" TVs at walmart look good and you can get a decent screen size for about the same price most people pay for those stupid things that they attach to the side of their heads while driving. I'm running V off an original fatboy 360 that I bought probally 6 years ago, and it looks fine on my tv.

 

But, it could be because you downloaded it, instead of buying a physical copy? I know the 360 is having issues streaming data if you install both discs, maybe the ps3 can't stream the data fast enough to look good if it runs solely off the harddrive?

Hmm, I don't think so because my friend also downloaded it and says it looks great on his. Honestly, I don't know if the game should look like this on consoles but I really think mine is really bad when compared to everyone else's.

- Check settings: Console and TV panel (such as PAL/NTSC, color mode: RGB etc...)

- Check cables: Perhaps you have a defect cable. Try other cables.

- Hardware error: If none of the above doesn't work, then it sound more like it's a hardware error (gpu or hdd) than a problem with your TV. I just tried this game on a crappy crt tv and it looks waaaaay better than in your pictures. Even though if your tv had defects it wouldn't look like that. That clearly looks like texture issues, like they're not loading correctly or something, so I doubt buying a new tv will solve the problem.

You need to go try your console on another TV to once and for all find out if it is a console or TV problem, before you go spending any money.

You need to fix your PS3 HDMI display options.  It looks like it's on 480p instead of 720p.
