Despite coming out more than eight years ago, Grand Theft Auto 5 remains one of the most popular games. After firmly establishing itself in the seventh and eighth-generation consoles, GTA 5 is looking forward to making a name for itself in the ninth-generation consoles.

The popular Rockstar Games title made the headlines once again as it was recently released for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. However, as the original versions were released years ago, many in the gaming community were upset about GTA 5 Next-Gen update prices.

It was recently revealed that the load times of GTA 5 are twice as fast on PS5 than on PS4. Besides the faster load times, the gaming community is wondering what Grand Theft Auto 5 looks like on these new consoles. Moreover, as these ninth-generation consoles boast much better graphics capabilities than their predecessors, gamers are intrigued to a greater extent. Fueled by this curiosity, IGN released a video that compares the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game. In addition, the video also compares these two versions with the PC version, first in the lowest and then in the highest graphics settings.

Some sections of the video compare all the three consoles simultaneously via split-screen. Apart from comparing the three consoles, the video also compares the Fidelity and Performance RT modes available on both consoles. The 7-minute-long video compares GTA 5 in three consoles in multiple different situations in the game, including cut-scenes, game stills, and regular gameplay.

The gameplay portion includes walking, running, driving, and interacting with other non-playable characters. The video puts a special emphasis on driving as it features two sections, one in snowy conditions and the other in the city's concrete jungle. All three GTA 5 playable characters can be seen in the video.

There's a stark difference between the low settings PC version of the game and the rest of the versions. However, which one of them is the best, that is for the fans to decide. It is worth noting that the PS5 version of GTA 5 has an advantage over other versions, mainly the DualSense controller, which might influence sales figures in the future.

Moreover, the online version of the game, Grand Theft Auto Online, is also in the news for its standalone release and the new Enhanced version. This enhanced version makes it easier for GTA Online players to get started in their criminal careers.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
