There's been a lot of debate over how good Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain actually looks on PlayStation 4. Sidestepping the whole 'downgrade' conversation that's always so prevalent these days, Konami has released comparative screenshots from the new-gen and last-gen editions of the release. We've embedded them side by side in this article - with PS4 on your left and PS3 on your right - so be sure to click each picture for the best analysis.

To be totally honest, there isn't a gigantic difference between the two versions. The PS3 pictures have a blurred look to them - that much is undeniable - but the there's still a lot of detail to be found. Whether this means that Kojima Productions perhaps hasn't pushed the PS4 as far as it could have is up for debate, however. Nevertheless, it's worth mentioning at this point that the new-gen release runs at a silky smooth 60 frames-per-second.

How do you think the two versions compare? Does the title look better than you thought it would on PS3, or does the PS4 iteration seem a little unimpressive? Take a seat in the operations chopper otherwise known as the comments section below.
