Metal Gear Solid V 1080p Vs 720p with warning

By Alan Ng - Jan 19, 2014

Are you planning to buy Metal Gear Solid V on last-gen PS3 or Xbox 360 platforms? If so, you are going to want this heads-up beforehand, as Konami has just released screenshots showing Metal Gear Solid V 1080p Vs 720p and there is a big difference.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is due out this March, but once again gamers are faced with a tough decision on whether to get the last-gen version of the game, or the new next-gen build on PS4 and Xbox One.

Thankfully, we’re pleased to say that this decision has been made a lot easier for those that are thinking about making the step to next-gen consoles. The screenshots that we include here are from Konami and they show the game running at 1080p on PS4, Xbox One above, followed by a 720p image of the game on PS3 and Xbox 360 below.


The difference, as you can see is pretty astounding. Gamers have already criticised the 720p image online by saying that it is filled with ‘jaggies’, but you can hardly blame Kojima Productions for putting their full efforts into the next-gen versions instead.

As we look forward to giving you a proper next-gen Vs current gen gameplay analysis soon, enjoy these early shots and tell us if you are still willing to pick up a PS3 or Xbox 360 version of the game.

    It would have been nice if they showed the same area in each screenshot. While there’s obviously a difference I’ll still be picking up the PS3 version. I’m yet to feel compelled to shell out the hundreds of dollars for a new platform.

      I have both a PS4 and PS3 hooked up to my TV, so I can easily compare the two systems. When I play games like COD, Killzone, AC, etc… on both systems and compare the PS4 1080p ‘high texture and fx’ graphics to the PS3 720p ‘medium texture and fx’ graphics, believe me, it does make a big difference. It is still very impressive how far the developers can optimise for 7 year old console hardware like the PS3, particularly games like GTA5 and Last of Us.

      Absolutely loving my PS4 so far, and for me, the PS4 is definitely worth more than worth the £349 I shelled out for it.
