Grand Theft Auto 5’s PS4, PC and Xbox One visuals are making Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain director Hideo Kojima depressed. Aww, come on mate your games looks nice too.


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.
