[PS3] Is GTA 5 supposed to look like this? Bad Graphics? (Pics)

Recommended Posts

OmiexStrike

Hey guys,

 

I am on PS3 and I downloaded GTA 5 from PSN store, and I have having some graphical problems, they seem to be really bad for some reason, I'm not sure why. I sit about 3 feet away from my HDTV and I have a Samsung 32 inch EH5000 which I recently bought about a month ago.

 

The graphics look like this during the day especially in the city, at night though it doesn't look nearly as bad. My TV sharpness is like at 5 out of 100 so that is not the problem. I also have destiny for PS3 which I got from psn store and it doesn't look nowhere near as bad as GTA 5, and destiny is supposed to have worse graphics since it is a port from PS4 which GTA 5 isn't, so idk what the problem is.

 

Is it supposed to look like this on PS3 or is something wrong? My PS3 is the old fat 80 GB model which I have had for years, but I doubt that has anything to do with it.

 

 

Pics (taken from iphone camera):

As you can see from the pics, things up close, such as the car doesn't look bad, it is just things from far away such as buildings, etc. have lots of jaggies and just look bad, almost like a PS1 game.

 

I also had a old Vizio 26 inch (VA26L model) which I tried it on and it looks even worse lol, like this:

Thanks for any help.

Your game file could be corrupted; i.e. a bad download. It might be a pain in the ass but delete the game and redownload it.

I could try that, but I only have 13 GB left on the system so I will have to delete some stuff, I want to be sure what the problem could most likely be before I resort to that.

Sorry, dude. The jagged lines are there because the console is 8(?) years old. You are playing the game on a very outdated system, and there is no way to fix it, unless you upgrade to next gen.
Next gen systems have better hardware, and better anti-aliasing capabilities, so you can barely notice the jagged lines on newer systems.

 

I know you probably can't upgrade, so I recommend sitting further away from your TV. I have a 32 inch Vizio and I can barely notice the jagged lines sitting about 7 feet from my TV (on xbox 360)

Oh, so the game is supposed to look like this? I mean I am sitting 3 feet away so that would kinda make it worse, plus it is in 720P on last gen. The thing is I am near sighted so I can't see jack from farther away lol. Destiny looks pretty good though on 720P last gen and that is a port from PS4, so shouldn't GTA 5 at least look the same if not better than Destiny, I guess I am comparing two different games though...

Did you take this while driving? Usually when going fast, you go too fast for the buildings to load. As if you were faster than the view distance. I know a fix but only in Xbox 360 as far as I can tell.

Looks fuzzy. I see people say to turn the sharpness down but when I do it begins to look fuzzy also. I keep my sharpness all the way up.

Also 3 feet away from the tv is pretty close.

Nope PS3 looks like this, I am so happy I left PS3 and I can't wait for the PC version to come out. Too bad the pc community is just fulled with people who are ready to use their free skid hacks.

No this was while I was stopped. Driving makes it worse though and I do experience that load in of buildings when driving really fast.

I would agree, but it is just that I have looked at youtube videos of PS3 as well as the graphics comparison video between 360 ps3 ps4 and xbone, but my ps3 looks worse than the graphics for ps3 shown in those videos.

The graphics are still really good. I have current gen GTA V, but I'll even admit that last gen still looks pretty good. I have a 42" 1080p HDTV, and it always looked fine for me. As for the jaggies, you'll just have to deal with it. You're playing on a very outdated console. Destiny looks better because it's not the same style game as GTA, and uses less processing power and all of that.

 

I do recommend buying a PS4 whenever you can afford it, GTA V looks stunning!

To be honest, I think it looks way to sharp, I would rather have it to be fuzzy but my sharpness is really low and I still see jaggies everywhere during the day.

Is that with an HDMI cable? Do your characters look fat? You may not have tv or game setting right.

My TV is also 1080P so if I switch to PS4 it would be a good TV for it, no money right now though, plus I hate paying for online xD. I really expected gta 5 to be better on PS3 though, I mean it looks like a PS1 game to be to be honest. The jaggies are really bad, I mean the camera doesn't do it justice, playing it in real time it looks worse.

Yeah it is through HDMI, no the characters look fine to me.

Well, I can't really tell from the pictures if it's an issue with the download or anything. Try taking a few Snapmatics and post them. Because I don't think I've ever heard anybody say they were THAT bad.

I'm not sure if snapmatic will help since those are photos from within the game and not from looking at the game through the TV.

Hmm... I took another look at your pictures and I notice the problem now. (most noticeable in picture 3 and 5)

It seems that some of the textures in the distance aren't fully loading and are very low in detail.

 

No need to upgrade to next gen lol. You just got a bad installation.

Just delete GTA V and re-install the game. It's a pain in the ass, but it should work. :)

Does the PS3 version of GTAV have the

 

""In-game depth of fields effects""

 

Feature In display settings. I'd recommend turning that off if it does.

Picture 5 was on my really old tv haha. But idk I may just reinstall it I guess, however the problem is the jaggies for me, not really the textures, but if the redownload does give me better textures would that fix jaggies along with it?

^^ By the looks of it, you have a problem with textures. Your pictures look way worse than the other guy's. Your textures aren't loading in properly... (the palm trees and far buildings are very low detail and they do look like a PS1 game).

If you re-download it, then the texture problem should be fixed, but the jaggies will stay because the PS3 is outdated and it can't smooth out the lines in every building. But overall you will have a much better looking game!

Oh, I see. Ok I guess I will give the redownload a try. Also, does it matter since I have a digital copy, like would disc be better or it should be the same?

The digital copy will work fine. In fact, it should work better than the discs.

 

Before installing you should reboot your PS3 just to be safe. Good luck! Let us know if it changed anything
