Finally, been asking for this for so long and no one actually did it, too bad the screens aren't like the trailers footage in terms of size.

But while you're guys at it, why don't you make the same thing but for the screenshots released by Rockstar, to see how much different or identical they are?

Good thread.

I just made this one.

The first trailer is the GTA V I wanted to play. Oh, well, there's always the PC version. :^:

This right here so much. Rockstar needs to stop giving everyone false hope. Leave the good screens/trailers to the PC version.

That doesn't make sense; as the pictures on the 1st page show, the finished game and the 1st trailer look pretty similar.

@radug, look at the perspective, although you took it at what looks to be the same exact angle, compare the building behind michaels house to the in game screen, also look at the buildings in the pic below.

I think the difference here has to do with the field of vision being different. Notice how the sign in the bottom pic appears "longer" and the buildings appear futher away.

 

Kind of like how when you take a photo of a landscape and in the picture the hills appear futher away, it's because the camera's FOV is different from your eye's FOV.

Here is a comparison. As you can see, not everything looks worse in the final version.

Another thread where people bitch about things removed, hey, look at the first screenshot, the beach hut, yeah the surboard is gone, but look at the ground, they added grass coming up from the stumps. Things change, some for technical, others for just, hey, let's change it, like the signs in the above screenshot.

I feel disappointed because i thought the game would look like the first trailer.

Actually better because it took 2 years until release!

But yeah, PC version we are waiting.

Nice! How hard is it to maintain the helicopter steady while taking the picture? I want to compare some aerial shots too. Great comparison, I hope you and others are going to make more so this thread doesn't die.

It looks like the first trailer in some cases.

I saw your thread dude and i found it a great idea and i wanted to post some screens there, but then I completely forgot  it. :/ Would be cool if you post some comparisons here so this thread doesn't die!

Did you set up quality in YouTube Videos to 780p and used Snapmatic screens of the Ps3 versions? Or did you used 320p and an Xbox with HDD Install...

if you compare, do it right.

I read your thread, great idea, but at that time there was a nasty filter applied to the snapmatic pictures that made the game look bad. I hope you join us in this thread so it doesn't get buried.

I used the trailer screens from other websites, so I don't know. And i took the ingame screens with snapmatic on my xbox (without HDD install.)

I had a feeling that scene looked too good to be true, but I never thought they were going to completely obliterate every detail. Either Rockstar highly overestimated the consoles' limitations, or they intentionally mislead us about the graphics.

Zooming squeezes objects to appear closer as they in reality are. This is a well known thing, like from sports where they zoom from distance. You think the guy behind is close, but he can be in fact like 100 meters behind. They probably used zoom camera in the trailer to avoid empty look.

Wow, didn't expect to see such interest on this topic, THANKS GUYS!

 

In celebration of this (this is my first topic so im obviously a noob)

 

Here's 2 new comparisons

(Again, sorry for the aspect ratio of the screens, I will be getting a flatscreen shortly so hopefully the aspect ratio would be fixed)

but they didn't really mislead us did they? the final game looks almost just as good, which is pretty damn amazing given the age of the hardware ..jesus you people bitch about the silliest things sometimes.

I'm sorry but anyone who thought the final version would look like the first trailer is very naïve, considering GTAV was only a year into development when the first trailer came out. Games change throughout development, and its your own fault for assuming graphics get better the further they get into development.
