About GTA & PS3
Other GTA games available on PS3 include GTA Liberty City, the Lost and Damned, GTA Online, GTA San Andreas, GTA 5 and the Ballad of Gay Tony.
GTA 5 is quite different on PS3 and other consoles such as Xbox 360. We take a closer look.
The PS3 has a mandatory 3.4 GB hard drive installation, and a takes up to 7 minutes before a player can access every feature of the game. However, there is no option to install GTA 5 to an Xbox hard drive.
Even though GTA 5 is relatively smoother in comparison to earlier versions, it tends to lag on PS3. The Xbox version seems to have a more fluid frame rate, and peaks in certain circumstances such as when a player is in light traffic or when in confined spaces. Both version, however, tends to run regularly at a similar clip.
GTA 5 is almost similar in terms of graphics on both consoles. Each version appears to have a paint filter to cover some imperfections even though this is more evident on the PS3 version. For instance, night scenes seem to have more streakiness.
GTA 5 on Xbox 360 comes with two exclusive downloadable content packs available for purchase. The PS3 version, on the other hand, has its own DLC from Rockstar. Note that the downloadable content makes the games more interesting and intriguing.
GTA 5 on PS3 has more achievements in comparison to the Xbox version. The player gets to enjoy stat tracking for skills, jump stats and a host of other extras. Make no mistake about it though; the Xbox 360 console has every list of achievements to keep a player hooked. In fact, some challenging goals depend on the creativity of the user and the gaming experience.
GTA 5 supports vibration in the Xbox 360 controller and the DualShock 3 which is not quite the case with the PS3 version.
General Motion Controls
GTA 5 on the PS3 version comes with an optional SIXAXIS motion controls. The player uses them to pilot the helicopter, steering the boats and performing motorcycle tricks. This is not the case with the Xbox 360 version.
