We’d never proclaim to being graphical geniuses here at Push Square towers – after all, there are better sources for that. However, we can certainly spot the difference between most PlayStation 3 games and their next-gen counterparts, with the recently announced PlayStation 4 edition of Grand Theft Auto V being the latest example. Confirmed during Sony’s press conference, the updated version of Rockstar Games’ sandbox smash promises a much more detailed image – and these GIF comparisons certainly highlight that.
While the relatively low-quality picture format doesn’t always provide the best method for visual evaluations, the differences between the two versions here are so wild that the quick and dirty side-by-side images actually work rather effectively. Scroll down and you should hopefully see a massive increase in foliage density, much more realistic lighting effects, and even some touched-up textures. Considering how good the original looked on the Japanese giant’s ageing console, this could easily become one of the PS4’s best looking games.
Are you impressed with these comparisons? Would you like Rockstar Games to make any gameplay tweaks to this hotly anticipated re-release? Hold us up in the comments section below.
