Historically, Rockstar North’s games this generation have just been that teeny, tiny little bit better on the Xbox 360 than the PS3. It was true for GTA IV, and it true for Read Dead Redemption. while we’re all busy waiting for Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry to do an in-depth comparison to confirm our own platform biases, here’re some comparative screenshots (via Reddit) for you to scrutinise.

Maybe it’s because my eyes are a little slanty and don’t let enough light in, but I’m seriously struggling to tell much difference between the two sets. What do you think? which looks better to you? does it bloody well matter?

For me, it all comes down to frame-rates, and well, apparently neither versions is really up to the task – though I’m really glad that it seems Rockstar’s managed something resembling platform parity.

It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
