The Great War of Screen Resolutions of 2014 continues with another huge title confirmed to run at 1080p on the PlayStation 4. Grand Theft Auto V, the biggest game of last year and soon to be biggest game of this year, will reportedly be able to run at the console’s maximum capable resolution.
Official PlayStation Magazine has gotten their hands on the game, and after a spin with it, they make absolutely sure to point out in its ten-page feature that the game will run at 1080p using the most gorgeous language of all time.
“Glimmering 1080p presentation, hugely increased draw distance, 100 new songs, fresh wild-life, a bumper version of GTA Online, this is sandbox you’ve dreamt about ever since you slotted Sony’s angular baby under your TV.
Farewell 720p. You served your purpose adequately enough. Still, our eyes have been gagging over 1080p’s pin-sharp pleasure and the Los Santos sandbox is only too happy to oblige on PS4, running at a native 1920 x 1080 pixels.”
It’s a very colorful way to put it, yes. It’s a shame that I might not be able to fully appreciate the upgrade considering I still haven’t come around to enjoying Grand Theft Auto V in the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360’s 720p resolution.
No mention of the Xbox One version hitting 1080p was made, but why would it be? This is Official PlayStation Magazine. We will have to wait for a report on the game to confirm whether it will allow the full 1080p or be stuck at a 900p, like many Xbox One versions of games as of late.
Grand Theft Auto V will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 18. A PC version will be released on Jan. 15, 2015, and I don’t think we’re going to have any doubts about how high of a resolution that will be able to run in.
