Upcoming stealth action game Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be released on old and new platforms. How different will they look?

Konami released a handful of comparison images from the different versions of the game, explaining how the PS3 and PS4 versions stack up as well as the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions.

No, Konami did not release images that compared the PS4 and the Xbox One versions. However, Konami did reveal that the PS3 version runs at 720p (scaling internally) at 30 frames per second. The PS4, however, has a resolution of 1080p and a frame rate of 60fps.

The Xbox 360 is 720p at 30fps, while the Xbox One version is 720p at 60fps. Compare that to the PS4 version's 1080p resolution -- if that kind of thing matters to you. Well, this isn't the first game to run on 720p on the Xbox One, and it probably won't be the last!

    They look pretty much the same. Which is good, since it means I can get the Xbox 360 version and not miss anything.

    Adjust the gamma guys, so the gamma matches, then you get a much better idea of the differences.

      It is the same gamma? The reason why old gen is darker is because of the lightning. The surface is not reflecting light which makes them looks darker but it is of the same. You can ramp up the gamma on old gen and it will make other colours look washed out.

        Finally someone who knows how that stuff actually effects things rather than another rigged screenshots conspiracy.

    Ha, again with 720p vs 1080p. Not looking good, at all.

      well, 720p will still look fantastic, but it means that Sony can probably keep flying the flag of having the 'ultimate' versions of cross platform games

        And that flag is all-important right now when comparing the consoles, if you just wanna play games. :\

          But it's not the only factor if you just "wanna play games". Exclusives are a big deal too.

          I owned a Saturn (possibly one of largest technological gaps between it and it's competitor), and there were so many awesome exclusive games that Playstation owners never got to experience. Yeah, there were great exclusives on Playstation too, but I'm just saying that graphics aren't everything.

            I'm not saying graphics are everything, either. It's just highly disappointing to current owners and potential owners.

        720p does not look fantastic anymore. Maybe it does if you have a big expensive TV with fancy upscaling settings, but if you're a uni student playing your consoles on a PC monitor it looks pretty terrible, really.

        I've never been one for console wars and it usually has made no difference to me, but if it comes down to the majority of games being 720p on Xbone, I definitely know which one I'll be getting when I need to get one.

    The "next-gen" versions look a lot sharper and maybe better textures, that's what is immediately present to me.

      In the next-gen pics there are more shrubs and random items like buckets etc in the camps. Also you will see there is more in the sharper texture ie the light reflecting out of the surface and the car tracks look more like mud tracks (more 3D kinda) from the tessellation rather than looking like someone drew a mud track to fake the 3D.
      Also Snake and the NPC's will be more round looking at the shoulders rather than boxey - once again from the use of DX11 features.

    Looking at these, I can be confident that if I get the 360 version, I won't be missing all that much.

    Don't know if that was their intention, and the 'next-gen' images sure are purdy, but I'm in no rush to upgrade, and it's good to know that I won't necessarily be missing out if I stick to that plan.

      Yeah, still looks delicious on the old wrinkly 8 yr old hardware!

      This - apart from a slightly sharper image (which won't mean fuck on my 720p TV) I cannot spot a single difference

      Now I understand why (In another article on this site) Randy Pitchford thinks any future Borderlands 3 is going to need to target the PS3/360 as well - when there's bugger all visual difference, how the hell are they going to sell these new consoles after the early adopters are finished?

    Both look great, no one loses out. This is only win/win.

    "PS3 version runs at 720p (scaling internally) at 30 frames per second. The PS4, however, has a resolution of 1080p and a frame rate of 60fps."

    Am I the only one wondering if this is due to technical limitations or if it is just Sony wanting the PS3 version tuned down to sell more PS4s...

    By the time you notice the difference the demo will be over, so it's not a problem. I guess to get your money's worth you can replay it over and over to play "spot the difference"!

    "The Xbox 360 is 720p at 30fps"

    The 360 and PS3 versions are running sub-HD resolutions (less than 720p) and are "internally scaled" to 720p.
