    tldr;

    Grand Theft Auto 5: the Digital Foundry verdict

    At last, Rockstar North's monstrous open-world caper is here in all its glory - but after five years and an estimated 170 million being sunk into development and marketing, which version is the one to buy? After playing both versions extensively and amassing over 2TB of lossless video to analyse, we must stress that you're bound to have a fantastic time with either take. Lighting and physics engines are fully intact on both versions, and the minor differences in reflection mapping go down as nitpicks. At its core, both PS3 and 360 present the same massive Los Angeles-inspired sprawl via the same 720p native resolution lens, with almost entirely identical effects and object detail.
    However, it's apparent that the PS3 version has an undeniable advantage in one area: even to the naked eye, ground textures on 360 are blurred as a result of what appears to be unoptimised asset streaming. Glitch or not, this basically amounts to concrete and grass textures appearing fuzzier beneath the feet of Trevor, Michael or Franklin, while the PS3 version's remain crystal clear. The 360 does command a minor advantage in frame-rate during synchronised play, but for shoot-outs and high-speed hurtles down the city streets, the PS3 can sometimes pull ahead in these metrics - though the difference is rarely perceptible either way. Since all else is identical across the board, the PS3 version is recommended on the grounds of image quality if you have the option.
    Grand Theft Auto 5 easily counts as the most feature-rich and eye-catching sandbox title of the current generation to our minds, though the silence on the as-yet unannounced PC and next-gen releases is deafening. Adaptations must surely be in the running - and doubtless these would be bolstered by smoother performance and higher-grade effects afforded by more muscular hardware. But that's perhaps missing the point; with so much heist-plotting content crammed into one package, and with an intriguing 16-player online mode yet to be patched in, there's no time like the present to enjoy Los Santos' delights on the platforms you
    There is the final verdict.

    Wow PS3 actually got the superior version this time? So they're both 720p native? Well done R*

    So they gave it to the PS3 because of the 360 ground textures which they suspect is a glitch. Sounds like something that will get fixed eventually. Until then though PS3 takes it.

    TBH both versions will probably get patched a few times to fix any bugs and improve framerates. At least we're not looking at another Skyrim.

    I think it looks pretty great on PS3, much better than GTA 4 and better than I thought it would look judging from the trailers.

    UK charts
    Released on Tuesday 17th September, ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ makes a stunning debut at the top of the All Formats Chart this week, breaking all records to become the fastest selling game ever.

    With just 5 days on sale it has become the 24th biggest selling title of all time in the UK (11th biggest on Xbox 360 and 10th on PS3). It has sold more in its first week than the launch weeks of all other GTA titles combined. It’s launch week is 2.4 times greater than that of ‘GTA IV’ and betters previous best ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ by almost million units. Released on just the two formats, Xbox 360 accounted for 57% of sales and PS3 43%.

    looks like Digital Foundry's verdict had an effect on 360 sales

    So only slightly more than half for the 360 version. PS3 version doing pretty good in a territory where 360 has a bigger userbase to draw from. Interesting. Funny how this suddenly became a sales thread as soon as the comparison verdict didnt favor the 360. lol

    Even when the PS3 version is better? Seems like kind of an odd policy for an "unbiased dual console owner".

    That doesn't apply to GTAV since it was developed independently for the PS3 and 360.
    One wasn't ported to the other, so they should look identical. Even thought the 360 version supposedly has ground texture issues.

    Im like you. I don't trust multi-plats on ps3 just like you don't trust ms with keeping the first party exclusives coming.

    Minor differences. I went with what I thought was the safer option. I made the right choice.

    I don't see any give or take on this one. Having played it on both, either will do just nicely. My son decided on the 360 version for the online with his friends. I don't see anything involving enough to say one is safer than the other. That's my personal experience with it on both platforms.

    Without any experience with the two, I would have to say one would go with their gut on it.

    It'll likely sell more on PS3 anyways, SONY owns all the marketing from what I've seen.

    Yup, go with the one that feels better for you and friends have, especially as Online will be launched within couple of weeks.

    GTA4 was pretty close too despite 360 exclusive DLC. It's in the same basket as FF, RE, Tekken etc. as being synonymous with PlayStation and will probably always do better there.

    Not to mention the PS3 has a digital version and 360 doesn't, so that 43^ could be closer to 50% for PS3 in a 360 dominated market.
