Does the last-gen version look better at times?

Recommended Posts

D T

Hear me out: I know the textures and resolution are lower quality on PS3/360, but some of the original art design looks better I think. For example, there's a blue tint on next-gen that often muddies the game's vibrant colors during the day. The last-gen tree models also seem to fit the city better, with more saturated foliage. There's probably some other differences I'm forgetting, but yeah certain visual aspects just look nicer, albeit a bit less detailed.

 

Anyone else kinda notice this?

i do agree with the tree models , they look more realistic but more blocky , while on PC/Current gen it looks super unreal

GTA IV on the Xbox 360 beats all the GTA V versions in terms of graphics (tho it beats it in any category too)

It certainly does not look better than GTA V graphically overall. The setting and some art decisions may change some opinions but technically and graphically GTAV blows IV out of the water, and IV certainly does not even come close to beating the current-gen and PC versions.

You must be on crack.

 

The answer is NO.

The graphics are actually really similar across both gen's. Which is kinda shocking since a 7 year old console can run the game with very similar graphics to a new console.

I wouldn't read too much into this. He always litters his posts with sarcasm (I must be the only person on this forum that notices it) yet he's usually the first to complain when people drag GTA IV into discussions to undermine GTA V.:/

 

As for the question I haven't played the last gen version of GTA V in 3 years, but I can't imagine how it would look better in ways. Actually I remember watching my brother play it a while back and it didn't look very nice. I've said it before that the last gen version wont age well compared the the current gen and PC version and believe that to be true.

Last Gen has better Explosions, Better Weather (the sky is more blue, less yellowish colors on the environment which I really hate, less fog), better tree models like other users said

Me too.....I've been playing on the PS4 and a high-end PC for the last two years. I wouldn't even remember how the PS3 version looks right now. After getting V for the PS4 (and later PC) I actually gave my PS3 copy of V away to someone for free (yes I paid £60 for it on launch too).

At 6:03, tell me PS3 doesn't look way better there. Next-gen looks so dull in that scene.

More saturation doesn't equal better image quality.

Yeah, but I'd take saturation over blue smog and trees that look like spoiled brocolli.

Having played both Xbox 360 and PS4 versions I see what you mean, OP.
Last-gen versions do look more vibrant and "clear" because NG versions include extra post-processing filters (like that blue haze).
Also there are some artistic changes like already mentioned tree models.

Yeah I can't even begin to think about how last gen looks since I got it on PS4 (for GTA Online) and recently bought it for PC (SP Modding) also VisualV mod makes GTA look a whole lot better.... But Redux Mod takes it even further

Just use VisualV, not Redux. If I remember correctly, the guy who "made" Redux stole a bunch of files from the VisualV guys. Edited by D T

Yeah, barely anyone considers this. Last gen struggles to even reach 30 most times while current gen can comfortably stay at 30, and of course the PC version can go 60 and beyond.

60fps is just a myth, every console player knows that , and resolution is just a number (until a new 4k ps4 gets released)

I will admit that at first the CG version looked kinda weird and washed-out to my eyes, because of all the extra effects, but other than that the increase in detail and how much smoother it was blew me away, and I quickly got used to the extra effects/processing/filters/whatever (I'm not a graphics guy :p) and think it gives it a more realistic look.

 

I haven't played the LG version in a couple years now (in fact, I sold off my 360 copy), and at the time I thought it looked amazing (aside from some PS2-quality ground textures), but after growing accustomed to the XB1 version, it probably looks like sh*t now.

 

Not to go too off-topic, but I kinda had a similar experience with Assassin's Creed. I first played Black Flag on 360 and thought it looked incredible, then I played through it on XB1 just recently and while I noticed all the nice new effects, the graphical upgrade wasn't that noticeable to me at first. Then I moved on to Rogue (the next chronological game, historically speaking) and whoa, the difference between XB1 Black Flag's graphics and Rogue's 360 graphics was much starker than I would have thought (and since Rogue is basically Black Flag: Seven Years War Edition, I think it's a fair comparison). So many little details I'd taken for granted in the XB1 version were missing, the framerate wasn't as nice, and the shadows and draw distance looked much worse. I've gotten used to it now to where it looks fine, but at first it was pretty distracting. (BTW, can we get remasters for Rogue, III and Liberation, Ubi? Pretty please?) My point is, I imagine it'd be the exact same thing if I were to play the 360 version of GTA V again, after growing so used to the XB1 version.

 

That said, the LG version pushed the 360 and PS3 to their limits and I'm kind of impressed they got as much as they did out of them.
