Video Comparison of GTA IV: Xbox 360 vs. PlayStation 3

These always seem to kick up plenty of dust. But for all the fanboy arguments they cause, they’re interesting to watch so you can get an idea of what the same game looks like on the two different systems.

While there’s clearly a difference between the 360 and PS3 versions of Grand Theft Auto IV, I can’t really say that there’s a better version (in terms of visuals) between the two. It all comes down to a matter of color palettes and what your personal preference is.

The important thing, though, is that you’re getting a really sweet game that’s up to the visual par no matter what system you get it on.

The ps3 version obviously has “cooler” colors.. I think I like it more. Everything else looks near identical.

Nah man you scrub its warmer lol look at the begining where the guy is geting whipped. Pause it and look at the 360 side of his back and the PS3 side of his back. The PS3 side is “warmer” not “cooler”

At 1:12 you can see the ocean detail is greater in the ps3, and the other has less detail.

the reflection shader on the car is missing on the xbox360.
that’s a pretty major downgrade, the xbox360 only shows light reflections the Ps3 in the
video the entire world.

and the background on the xbox360 is choppy, vs smooth on the PS3 while scrolling across the city.
