Report: GTA 5 runs at 1080p on PS4

Grand Theft Auto 5 will leverage the extra power of newer consoles to display in true HD on your PS4.

GTA 5 is the subject of a ten-page feature in the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine. According to those who snagged a copy, the feature makes specific mention of the game’s 1080p resolution:

“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,” the feature reads.

“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.”

Gamepur has scans of the relevant text in situ.

The magazine makes no mention of the Xbox One version, of course, and Rockstar is yet to comment on the news to confirm parity – or a lack of it.

Last year we would have assumed that the Xbox One version would run at a slightly lower resolution than PS4, but in the interim Microsoft unlocked a little extra additional power by freeing up system resources previously devoted to the Kinect. Also, Rockstar is staffed mostly by wizards, and has had an extra year to work with the new console.

GTA 5 PS4 and Xbox One’s release date of November 18 isn’t far off now, but the preview may have been based on an older build, so there’s no guarantee the resolution information will remain accurate at time of launch.

We don’t know what frame rate Rockstar is aiming for, unfortunately, but we’d be pretty surprised if GTA 5′s jaw-dropping open world will allow for anything greater than 30 FPS.


The video you have requested should be available shortly.

Console racism. Disgraceful


Great news for the PS4. I might can bring myself to get this game again.


Really wish it was like on the Xbone but its good news for PS4 users!


Anyone saying you cant tell the difference between 720p and 1080p either need to get their eyes tested or are XBOX players making pathetic attempts to pick holes out of the PlayStation. Some people need to grow up.


Good for PS4 users.

Im waiting to see what it will be on Xbox One.


It will probably run at 720p or at the most 900p on the Xbox one.


I'm just sittin here wonderin about far cry 4


Probably stuck at 30 frames. Sad. FPS>Resolution


TDK_Jr What's the difference. I really don't care about definition as long as it's not 360p. I would rather 720p than nothing at all. There isn't much of a difference between 720 and 1080p.
Cause fanboys like to cherrypick.
