Missed the GTA 5 PS4, PC and Xbox One trailer? Have a look and see for yourself how far the visuals have come.

Speaking with CVG, Kojima touched on how Rockstar was able to set its visual bar so high, saying. “It’s a bit different because Rockstar is going in a very different direction to what I’m trying to create.

“When we say we’re an open-world game it makes it sound like it’s trying to be the same as what those guys are creating. But this is very different – I’m trying to do a free infiltration game.

“What Rockstar has created and the world they have created is super impressive, and actually when I saw the PS4 version a few days ago I got depressed again. And this is not game design-related, it’s just me. The quality that they showed in the PS4 trailer was really impressive.”

Aww man. Well, trust us on this one: MGS 5 is looking nice too, and you can see more of it live right here at 11am UK today. Kojima’s playing it live as part of his next web-stream.

    this is not news at all… Dave… that just makes Kojima look bat compared to these devs which is not true and that;s why this is not worth commenting on.

    Creator is impressed by other creator. That’s what developers ALWAYS do.
    GTAV maybe have great visuals on current gen and PC but MGSV have better facial animation compared to GTAV. You can’t even compare to GTAV because in GTAV there is almost no facial animation at all. Better lighting in GTAV. Not to mention that the game has smart AI and it has emergent sandbox-ish gameplay compared to GTAV.

    Kojima is doing what ArmA developers are doing to say at least but with stealth mechanics.

    MGS5 visual are jaw dropping during cutscenes, but less impressive in game.

    In ground zeroes during day i’ve noticed several objects loading late and popping in…. It gets more pleasing during night missions with nice light effect, realistic rain etc.
    Big letdown the polygon count and model are same for ps3/ps4 !

    Rockstar has been making open 3D worlds using Playstation tech longer than 90% of the developers so it is natural. GTA and PP are two different games if anything he should be worried if AC Unity will blow his game out of the water with stealth mechanics. I doubt AC will be a game changer but it will be good. Even with the overpriced demo of GZ it did show potential and if he can keep his word that PP will be 200 larger than GZ then thats alot of replayability if you can redo missions like you could in Peace Walker without even touching the online. He needs be happy that he dominated an entire genre of gaming for decades and he is going in this Generation setting the bar pretty high for any Splinter Cell or any other type of stealth game for that matter.

    C,mon Hideo, stop girnin, you’re better than that, get with the program already, most folk who bought into the next gen are graphic whores, whether they admit it or not, no one who bought a ps4 did so to play the same old same old, step up to the plate and up your game. Move with the times or get left behind.
