Direct Screenshot Comparison: PS3 versus Xbox 360


Unless you’ve got both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 then the decision about what platform to get GTA 5 on is an easy one. But what if you have both systems, what should you do then?

Thankfully someone one over at Reddit has taken the time to get some direct screenshot comparisons up for us, and as noted the Xbox 360 version of GTA V looks to have slightly smoother shadows and maybe just a little bit more detail in things like vegetation. It should be noted however that otherwise the two versions look and perform exactly the same, including in respect of framerate.

It’s nice to see that Rockstar was able to get both consoles looking this good and performing so closely.

What version of the game are you opting for? Just by the respective page views of our cheats pages for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3, the Xbox 360 is currently ahead by roughly a 2:1 ratio.
