GTAIV: 30 Frames Per Second, PS3/360 Versions Identical

Just about any information we can locate on Grand Theft Auto IV should be considered big news, right? Well, it seems we've got some details on what to expect in terms of visuals, and it comes courtesy of 1Up's latest "1Up Yours" video.

As we all know, the GTA titles have never been the epitome of graphical greatness. Given the huge size of the cities, it's actually quite impressive that Rockstar could make the games look so good even with last-generation hardware. However, we've heard plenty of fantastic things about GTAIV; most specifically, the realism and detail of the surrounding environment. According to 1Up, both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will run at 30 frames per second, and they look mostly identical to one another. Granted, the PS3 version of GTAIV is a touch behind in the development phase - which we already knew - but it will still launch at the same time as the 360 edition. Now, 30 fps may be unacceptable in the current world of first-person shooters, but if it's steady, it should work out just fine for GTAIV.

Thus far, we haven't heard anything significant that would distinguish the PS3 and 360 versions of the game, which is probably good news. This means that Rockstar has been telling the truth this whole time, and PS3 owners won't get shafted with the biggest release of 2008.

"PS3 owners won't get shafted with the biggest release of 2008." I'm gonna have to disagree with that portion and say that MGS4 is THE BIGGEST RELEASE of 2008 XD

Altho, I guess GTAIV is more...violent :)

Hooray for 2008!!!

I second that. I never thought GTA was such a fun game, I mean, running around and killing innocent people isn't my type of game. However, I seriously find it sad that game developping companies aren't loyal to anyone now, and give their games to the highest bidder. I mean look at what Playstation did for the GTA series, without it, it would be NOTHING.

Even though BluRay has a lot of space, developers are not using the extra space, usually they are making copies of different versions, which is why ur game works in Japan and in Europe... oh ya and motor storm was only 12.5Gigs in space, imagine the quality if they actually used 50Gigs available on Blu.

Wow its so funny how things change. Playstation actually gave GTA its 1st shot on the Ps1. Now look at how it is now. On 360 their giving out a whole gaming package wit pre orders of GTA IV. PS3 hurry up now. Its getting harder for me to defend the system against all my friends that have the 360 and claim its the better system.

Rockstar needs to stop making these stupid games.It's the same crap in every GTA title they've made.I guess the graphics in GTAIV would keep me interested for all of ten minutes.

why dont u stop bitching about how u dont like FUN games!!! i don't talk about how u like RPG's... like it or not GTA is the most famous franchise out there, not even WoW comes close, maybe WoW is better at rippin off people...

P.S. San Andreas was the best bang for the buck, pun intended.
