GTA IV: The two versions look different, says Houser

Please, stop. We cannae take any more. Speaking to 1up, Rockstar boss Sam Houser has admitted that the two versions of GTA IV do have visual differences.

“There’s a slight difference in the way they look,” he said. “I think that’s to do with really low-level technical stuff that I’m not the guy to explain. The 360 games have a certain look to them; PS3 games have a certain look to them. I like the way [the PS3] renders.” He concluded, “There’s a certain kind of softness without being blurry – some warmth to it – and then there’s a certain more clinical element to how the 360 looks.”

It’s out next week. Then we can start talking about the DLC and linking to walkthroughs.

Thanks, Evil Avatar.

    Haha,
    Must suck to be an X360 fanboy right now. Even the Rockstar Boss thinks the PS3 version is superior!

    A friend of mine went to a game store the other day. They said they had no 360s left except for two Elites.

    The price cut and poor supply has bled them dry. BAd luck for MS Iguess

    KingCharMing, not sure how you extracted that opinion from the story. He just says they look different.

    “I like the way [the PS3] renders.” He concluded, “There’s a certain kind of softness without being blurry – some warmth to it…”. I’d read on a couple of other sites that the 360 version looks more cartoony

    I might change the site strap to, “News has a new home”.

    1Up’s interview has Sam whining about the 360′s lack of storage, too. He’s so obviously a PS3 fanboy!

    What in the living heck happened up there with the arachnid specialist?

    The tag at the end is scary…

    The tag at the end is poetry. But I think it is related to Housers bad mouthing of the old gen storage format of the 360.

    He wants Bluray to get a new home

    I bet they’ve used blur filtering rather than AA… DMC4 did it on the PS3 where the 360 used AA.
