Who Needs Next Gen Consoles When GTA V Looks This Good?

By Sam Gibbs on at

The more I look at all the screens and videos released by Rockstar from GTA V, the more I realise it's the developers that really make the difference, not the hardware. Take a look at these new gorgeous images and tell me I'm not right.

Of course, you have to have the horsepower at your disposal in the first place, but Rockstar's really shown what the current, out-going generation of consoles is capable of. It's just a shame this kind of graphical prowess only ever comes at the end of a console's lifecycle -- imagine if the launch titles for the PS3 and Xbox 360 had looked this good.

Anyway, Rockstar also said we should find out a bit more about the game in August, complete with GTA Online details, for all those itching to take their pedestrian-squishing antics onto the open internet. [Rockstar]
