which is exactly why i hate console fags, They're happy with an inferior game.
*sigh* And this is why I hate CERTAIN types of PC Gamers, they always play that oh so superior card and HAVE to bash console gamers.
While I think anyone who uses fag as an insult is an idiot, I think he sort of makes a point. I've looked through this thread and noticed that you kept calling the optimizations "stylistic choices." Changing the color and textures of the 2405 house was a stylistic choice not removing the overgrown flora and trash. The comparison someone posted showing that very house with a plant vase, broken bicycle, and hose reel in one picture and one without those things just show the game was optimized differently for each console.
You can look at an optimization negatively or positively but it's still an optimization.
Because they're dynamics, the damn hose reel changes position in the garden. Trash cans are dynamics and appear on certain days EXCEPT that street for some reason, the for sale signs appear in the next neighborhood over, hell I even posted a picture from my game that showed a house in the next area WITH Trash outside the front AND the For Sale sign.
THAT'S why I hate the 2405 picture, PC Gamers THINK Trailer 1 is going to be the PC version, when it's not, it was changed to look cleaned up, that has become a high class area in the game, the other stuff like Trash, For Sale Signs, Overgrown grass, etc, appear elsewhere in the game.
And the annoying thing is, there's no real way to prove it, as when the PC version arrives and 2405 is still looking the same, then some guys will just bitch "OHLOLOLO ANOTHER sh*tTY CONSOLE PORT FROM COCKSTAR!!!".
If you look at most other screenshots, there arn't huge changes outside of tree's being removed and different shadow techniques. It's JUST THAT ONE DAMN AREA, that keeps getting brought up as bait for PC Gamers to try and gloat over Console Gamers and bitch at them for "ruining" the game, etc, or some bullsh*t like that.
Funny thing is, since this thread, I've actually had time to look through the games files, a f*ck load of stuff was planned, cut, changed, etc, so it just falls in line with whatever the hell Rockstar thinks best at the time.
edit: And just for the proof, here's the pics I posted in the thread...
