GTA V on PlayStation 4 vs PlayStation 3 Comparison

Grand Theft Auto V went down in the record books as one of the most successful video games of all time. This no-holds-bar game follows in the same footsteps as its predecessor, but brings several new additions to the table. The end result is an engrossing, captivating, and highly violent game that we just can't get enough of.

Fans of the Grand Theft Auto franchise knew GTA V would be a hit, but I don't think anyone expected it to break so many records. More specifically, GTA V broke a total of seven Guinness World Records:

  1. Best-selling action-adventure videogame in 24 hours
  2. Best-selling videogame in 24 hours
  3. Fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion
  4. Fastest videogame to gross $1 billion
  5. Highest grossing videogame in 24 hours
  6. Highest revenue generated by an entertainment product in 24 hours
  7. Most viewed trailer for an action-adventure videogame

If you're tired of playing GTA V on the archaic PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 (we're kidding, they aren't archaic quite yet), you're in luck. Sony announced an upcoming version of GTA V designed for the PlayStation 4 at the E3 press event. Following this announcement, Rockstar, the company behind this brilliantly violent game franchise, confirmed the game is coming to the PlayStation 4, adding that plans are underway to release GTA V on both the PC and XBOX One as well.

What kind of changes will Rockstar make for the upcoming PS4 version of GTA V? During the press event, a spokesperson for the company said there will be "across-the-board graphical and technical improvements." Granted, this isn't much to go on, but a video was recently surfaced revealing some side-by-side comparison shots of GTA V running on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

The 5-minute-long teaser video above reveals some pretty remarkable differences between the two platforms.

In the video description, the company added that "GTA V will use the power of the new consoles and PC offering graphic and technical improvements. There are increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic and enhanced resolution." The description also notes that cats, French bulldogs, hammerhead sharks, and new weather effects will be added.

So even if you own GTA V for the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, you'll probably want to pick up another copy once it's ported, or should I say completely revamped, for the next-gen consoles.
