GTAV gameplay trailer captured on PS3

Rockstar Games confirms newly released trailer for open-world game captured with footage from PlayStation 3 version of the title.

Footage from the debut gameplay trailer for Grand Theft Auto V released yesterday was captured on the PlayStation 3 version of the game, Rockstar Games has confirmed.

"Just to clarify for those asking, this particular video was captured with footage from the PS3 version of the game," Rockstar Games said on its website.

The nearly five-minute video (below) details the game's new three-protagonist system and introduces players to a range of new locations, items, and activities. The video was captured entirely from in-game footage.

GTAV launches worldwide September 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. PC and Wii U versions are "up for consideration," while Rockstar is reportedly hiring programmers to bring its "latest titles" to PC.

Hey listen everybody, I do like GTA so much, from San Andreas, and then this GTA V, but I think I was a bit disappointed about the character in this game, although there is three character here, but I think there is no good looking man here. From what I think It's supposed to be one good looking guy, who being tough guy, one a bad ass boy, and the good one. But at least one good looking boy... oh come on, a cool one  ;)  

PS : I'll wait when it come to PC hohoho

basically confirmation that the PS3 is the smoothest running, highest fidelity version of the game. devs arent in the habit of showing the inferior version in media. this is actually surprising as well, since the PS3 version of Read Dead Redemption was slightly inferior to the 360 version visually.

Was anyone thinking it was 360 footage? There are multiple points in the reveal video when PS3 button prompts are clearly visible.

I found GTA 3 to be much more fun driving-wise.  I didn't have to worry about skidding all over the place at low speeds when a little rain occurred.  Better cars made rain driving easier in GTA 3, too (like Stingers as opposed to Stallions or Bobcats).

Hey Rockstar, i hope that you release this on PC since that's what the next consoles are based off of. And for those of you that don't know, x86/x64 are PC CPU architectures. Your next consoles both have x86 (32-bit) AMD processors.

This and Final Fantasy X, X-2 are the only current gen games I'm looking forward to. Not Including PC games. Everything else I will be getting PS4 or PC.

The fact that it's current gen only is okay for the game, but what about the DLC? How long will we have to play on your current gen consoles instead of the new ones?.. Doesn't make sense to me. At least the PS4 is flat and have it's fan on the back (nothing on top), so we'll be able to put the PS3 on top of it, lol.

This is gonna sound dumb, I hope the Golf is halfway decent. I hope it's on par with PGA for the Genesis, that's not asking much! And I can't wait to run down deer in my car.

If I get 100 hours into this game only to see it release on PS4 and XBoner, I'm gonna be pissy.

I already planned on getting it for my PS3.  I own all consoles and PC so I don't have to wait.

At least now PC elitists will hopefully stop their talk of, oh this gameplay must've been taken from the PC.

And that just shows how masterful Rockstar are at creating, in a whole, a beautiful and immersive world with any technology.

Congratulations to all PS3 users. You've just landed a jackpot.

@VarietyMage that's because GTA3 is an old game in which the physics were still in its early stages, as years passed by developers make games more realistic, such as car driving.

@VarietyMage driving was easy in all GTA games.....GTA4 was hard at first..but by the end of the game i was a pro. 

for those that think driving well in GTA4 is impossible..then watch those with skill on youtube.

@gazybab the one getting butthurt is console fanboy , they they feel betrayed by rockstar because their game release for pc. I dont understand why people like you acting like that. If gta release for pc , what so bad about it. Did they ruins your life if they release it for pc. Dont say about torrenting , i have a friend that half of their console games collection are pirated version.

@orthodox1976 Why do people keep saying this? You realize it's built and optimized for the current gen right?

That key word is OPTIMIZED.

@AGENT_WESKER PC graphics will always be ahead of the console curve, i'm not bias, it's just how our technology production works.

@AGENT_WESKER Actually I think it was pretty obvious that the graphics were not PC level, even if it we thought it was running on a PC dev system or something.  Not to be one of those elitists but did they really look great to you?  One of the comments during the analysis video was that the game clearly did not look like anything that couldn't be done on current gen consoles.

@bottaboomstick @VarietyMage None of them were hard to drive in. It's pretty pick up and play. (Though 4s physics were admittedly odd)

You want to try hard driving, go pick up a copy of that god awful gran tourismo series.

@mrboone01 I would too, if I didn't have to drop another 300 on my pc just to get it compatible with current gen specs.

PC gaming is ridiculous. It pays off in the end... but it's ridiculous.

I'll take the plug and play of consoles any day.

@mrboone01 I dislike PC gaming. I have a PC, X360 and PS3 too, but I'm gonna get it on PS3. I prefer playing with a controller and on a big screen tv, instead of a monitor with mouse and keyboard. It just doesn't fit at all. And on top of that, you have to wait for at least a year to get the game....

@Phooey442 @AGENT_WESKER 
Not when new consoles release. Every new console generation the Console graphics look better and PC spend that generation playing catchup. By the time PC catches up and surpasses consoles a new console generations about to start which starts the cycle all over again with PC playing catch up.

@Hobbes444 @senjutsu @mrboone01
Yea but not all games support controllers on PC and you got to go through annoying work arounds to get one up and running. Then there's the fact that games that do support conteollers you still have to program the buttons its not as simple as a console where you just play no setting to mess with or nothing. The fact is PC will never be as simple as consoles.

@senjutsu @mrboone01  

senjutsu, if you really want to you can buy a small form factor PC from people like Falcon Northwest or any company that makes one, configure it how you want it, and hook it up to your TV via HDMI. Xbox controllers are available for a PC and you can still use a M & KB

@Marky360 @Phooey442 @AGENT_WESKER  

I've never heard of PC playing catchup with consoles.  At any given point you can find PC hardware that's better than consoles even right after a new console release.  You're not making any sense.

@senjutsu you want controller? Just plug your gamepad to pc. You want Big screen? You can plug your hdtv to your pc and sit on your couch. You dont see the point of the mods?? If you go to gta4 mod community you will see that people still playing gta 4 because of the mods. There are a lot of mods that makes the game more bigger and feel different from the original.

@acelogan1989 @jo8n3645 @mrboone01 @AGENT_WESKER Mods are nice, But I prefer playing with a controller, on my couch, big screen tv and surround sound instead of a monitor, mouse and keyboard, 1 year later... I just don't see the point. Just for mods?
