I wouldn't say its gimped. Lots of games don't run at 720p even though they say they are. As far as being gimped I would say no since most reviews say that both look extremely well. The only thing it said the 360 did better on was colors but that could just be the way each console handles graphics.

I'm not sure I'd call it "gimped". The PS3 version is 640p (or whatever), and the 360 version is 720p. I don't think it matters a whole lot either way.

Yeah, it's 630p but what difference does it make? Loads of games this gen have been less than 720p upscaled.

I've been playing the 360 version a lot today. Jaggies and pop-in really aren't an issue on that one either.

Fanboys are enjoying making a lot of absolutely nothing on both sides.

"I heard the PS3 has far less pop in then the 360 version"

"Really, you've experienced this for yourself?"

"Nope, just some information I'm regurgitating that I learned while browsing some forums on the internet."

"Oh."

Both versions look nearly identical to me, some people are just trying to stir the pot

i don't have a 360 and haven't seen it live on a 360, but on my PS3 i haven't noticed any pop ins yet, they may have happened but i am a little to focused on the game to notice,

but with the resolutions, the back of the game says supports, 720,1080i,1080p now does that just mean it will scale to those resolutions? how does that work, if it is running at 1080p then wouldn't get all the graphical benifit from running at 1080p. just as if you were to run a pc game at 1280x1024 and then compare it to 1920x1080 you would see a improvment,

i know its playing at 1080i on my sammy and looks great.

I also saw the 1080p on the PS3 box. Does it really run at that? Yes, I know it would be upscaled...but does it do 1080p at all?

You would probably have to disable 720p in the XMB to force it up to 1080p..

It probably runs like MLB the show 08 in 1080p. Where you have to disable 720p in the settings. The game looked the same in 720p than 1080p and it ran slower in 1080p

All putting it into 1080p means is that the PS3 / 360 does the upscaling instead of your TV. The native resolution of the game is 630p / 720p (PS3 / 360) so changing the output res isn't going to magically make it look any better.

If you saw the comparison video (http://www.joystiq.com/2008/04/29/gta-iv-comparison-video-between-xbox-360-ps3/)

To me it looks the same, although they do a terrible job with those comparisons because one side of the screen is one console, while the other is another console, yet it's not really the same image, it's a screen split in half, so you're looking at two totally different pictures so there is nothing to compare them to, really.

They do look the same, but on the scene where it shoes Nikko on the beach, the PS3 version has pretty bad shadows clipping in the water while the 360 doesn't have it

It's true PS3 is upscaling to 720p. I don't think gimp is an accurate word to describe it though. Apparently the resolution may have been sacrificed for extra post-processing and possibly more accurate lighting.

(The guy who discovered the PS3's resolution said it's an example of where the quantity of pixels is not the final determination of graphics quality, since he preferred the look of the PS3)

The game looks great on both systems. The differences are minor.

OMG. Could you bitch some more? Who cares whether its running at 630p, 730p or 1080p? Compared to xbox and ps2, 630p is still amazing looking. 630p is also still an HD resolution. Its not a standard resolution but it is one. Besides, if games like halo 3, gta, and cod won't run well at 720p or 1080p I would, and most other people would take any resolution if it looks as good as those games do.

If you have played a game that is laggy and glitchy because of overstepping its graphics boundries (for example Saints Row before the update fixed it) you will realize why it is better to have not necessarily as high of a resolution for better butter smooth gameplay.

and as SC385 said, it is all HD still and much better than standard def...unless of course you want to act like a video tard and say that only 1080p is "full" or "true" HD :rolleyes:

No its not gimped. Read reviews, ever review Ive read, said that the PS3 version looks better. Although it is slightly.

When the thread title asks if the PS3 version is gimped, you have to cut to the chase. Are you going to believe what the specs tell you should look better ? Or your lying eyes ?

you can watch the TV in your apartment in fullscreen on the PS3, something that cannot be done on the 360!

How does that even happen? Isn't it just a texture?

What did they do, discover you can use one or two of the Cell chips for postprocessing? Of course, that doesn't mean every other game company would actually discover the same anytime soon. :rolleyes:

my god so hate the stupid "It's 630 whatever" bullshit

Fact of the matter is NO one can tell what it is unless someone stops, takes a screen shot, then fucking counts some pixels. No one is looking at a screen shot and going "OH yea that picture is 623x1803 random fucking dimenson right here" It's ALWAYS been a bullshit argument. Does the game look pretty good? Sold!
