Is it better on PSP or PS2?

Recommended Posts

CountdownIIExtinction

Last time I played this game was 10 years ago on the PlaysStation 2. I''m planning to play VCS again in near future. I was thinking about trying it on PSP since I have never played PSP version before.

 

What is overall more pleasant experience? My main concern about PSP version is small screen size.

 

Would you recommend PSP version or PS2 version?

PSP for better performance and portability and cheat device.

PS2 for new stuff / bug fixes and better graphics with sh*ttier performance.

You should just get an emulator, better graphics and better performance both for PSP and PS2

Though you should have a decent machine to run the PS2 emulator at a playable frame rate.

If you're concerned about playing on a small screen get the PS2 version. If you want an objectively better looking and performing experience get the PSP version.

 

The extra content for the PS2 version isn't worth it imo. Just more rampages, side missions and such.

 

so if you want to make an informed decision I'd highly recommend his video. Edited by RetroMystic

I'd recommend PSP since the graphics look better, however there is the notorious Garage bug which pretty much deletes any vehicle you store under certain circumstances, but that should only bother you if you want to collect Special Vehicles. Or just get PPSSPP.

I have played both and if screen size is an issue for you then I would say as someone who is partially blind in one eye to definitely go with the PS2 version. It's the only one that is playable for me. Feels a bit stretched out at times and as other people have pointed out, performs poorly when there's a lot going on but if you're lucky enough to have a PS2 or a backwards compatible PS3, then go for it. I really do hope they release it for download on PS4 soon.

Can someone explain this PSP has better graphics over PS2?

As far as i know PS2 has extra trails effect, which brings nice lighting to game and can be turned off. And on top of that PS2 has better texture quality for most of the parts.

they probably mean better graphics as in more clean-looking. in that sense I think it is, but I still prefer the ps2 graphics.

as you said, the extra trails option brings nice lightening and also I think it adds more to the atmosphere/setting of the city.

I don't think anyone here has said it has better graphics more-so just better performance. I don't know if it's just me either but the PS2 game looks kind of...blurry? I can't quite explain it.

I agree , i thought the PS2 has better graphic's then the PSP, but the PSP is the worst for rampage's & any other mission's because it doesn't have free camera so it's kind of a pain in the ass to do certain missions . Also not to mention the drive by system on PSP is annoying as well..

 

I'd recommend the PS2 version.

No idea why you wouldn't pick the PSP version. I mean, it's GTA on the go, what's not to love?

this

also psp version lacks details like floating leaves, newspapers and probably more stuff like that

PS2 version is just better in every way when it comes to graphics.

the only thing that people might not like is the trails effect but it can be turned off

I'm like f*cking 99% blind and it's gotten worse the past 10 years. sh*t - the vision I had back then... f*ck it, why should anyone care anyway?

 

I can belive those who say PS2 haS wprse performance

because I remember setting up a brothel in Vice BEACH ANd all of a susudden game was lagging like motherf*cker. I thought my game was broken or something.

 

And emulator is not the real thing. This is why I'm happy to play authentic original AO PS2 SA right now amd I think I'm gonna replay this one on PS2 as well as soon as I am finished with my other games. VCS after all i think is one of the finest GTAs after GTAIV.
