Why it probably won't, it cuts the market to 1/3 for a game which will sell insanely well, it seems a bit counterintuitive.
I am fully aware that devs will optimise their engines for the consoles and of course, this will improve, but there is still a limit and sometimes these "optimisations" are merely chosen sacrifices as seen in recent games. They may increase polygon count, but reduce texture and shader size to compensate. This is not much of a surprise when they have being developing for the hardware for well over 6 years now and most likely became as efficient as possible sometime ago.Bvenged said:While you are right about PC being superior by a long shot, PS3 and 360 are barely different in power these days. Read my comment at the top of the page then nod your head as I ask you "You're not very aware when it comes to technological advancements or changes in the way computers logically handle data, are you?".Jimbo1212 said:Wrong - the PS3 is a fair bit more powerful, but sadly both flop compared to a basic gaming rig of £500.
In one sense, a PS3 exclusive could be possible seeing that GTA 4 pushed the 360 to its limits years ago, so how could they possibly improve it besides change the textures?
However, would Rockstar cut off 40 million potential buys?
Highly doubtful as the one thing this generation has shown is that devs will happily reduce the quality of the game for more customers.
The efficiency of data handling on both consoles these days has become superb, allowing the developers to allocate more processing time to render greater detail in textures and more polygons for meshes, whilst calculating smarter AI & rendering more objects on-screen real-time than any game 3 years back on the same hardware; when we thought they had hit the limit.

Hmm, Thought there is a clear trend towards lower FOV in games I've yet to see a demonstrated difference in performance. Essentially all FOV is change the "zoom-level" of the render-view, lower FOV you are zoomed in more the trade off is although you render less side to side it has to show more pixels of things further away.SmashLovesTitanQuest said:Dont think the xbox can handle it?
Dont worry. Rockstar will just turn the FOV down to something like 40. Its common practice these days. COD has been doing it for years.
Actually, the PS2 still is the largest selling console in the world with 153 million units shipped worldwide.Ghostwise said:Rockstar isn't stupid. They are in the business of making money and there is literally 0 chance this will be a console exclusive. Not trying to be all negative or anything but if they were to make it an exclusive it would be on the 360. It's the largest selling console in the world and there is no way they would turn their backs on that. I wouldn't be surprised if it showed up on the Wii U lol.
Fair enough, sorry for the general suspicion. I have developed a healthy phobia of PS3 vs. 360 flamewars breaking loose at every corner.grrr said:It's just me speculating based on a few things that I noticed today. I don't 'hope' that Xbox gamers will be deprived of a most likely excellent game.Monsterfurby said:So, OP, are you saying you *think* it will be the case, or rather that you *hope* it will be the case?
Just asking, because we are skimming the town border of Trollville a bit here...
