Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Screenshot Comparison Between PC, PS3, PS4, X360 and XB1

Konami has released a detailed screenshot comparison between Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on their official website. This comparison illustrates the difference between the various versions of the game in great detail.

First is a comparison between the PS3 and PS4 version of the game. PS4 runs it at 1080p while the PS3 version upscales the game to 720p. The difference is pretty clear here as the PS4 version looks more crisp and clear compared to the PS3 version.

Left = PS4, Right = PS3

The next comparison is again between the PS3 and PS4 version of the game. This time, we can see the difference in draw distane and the anti-aliasing quality between both versions of the game.

Left = PS4, Right = PS3

Next is a comparison between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One version of the game. The lack of motion blur and depth of field can be clearly seen on the Xbox 360 version of the game here. The foliage density is lower and the reflection is toned down on Xbox 360.

Left = XB1, Right = X360

[twentytwenty]mgs-xb1-x360 (6) mgs-xb1-x360 (7)[/twentytwenty]

mgs-xb1-x360 (1) mgs-xb1-x360 (8) mgs-xb1-x360 (4) mgs-xb1-x360 (5)

The last comparison is between the PS4 and PC version of the game. As promised, the PC has higher quality shadows, better textures and a much better draw distance compared to the PS4. It also support 4K resolution, making it the definitive version of the game.

Left = PC, Right = PS4

Metal Gear Solid V will be out on September 1st for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

    Wow, so much pathetic PC masterrace idiots in thread. I am wonder why some mad moron with PC which at minimum cost 5 times more than PS4 (if we are talking about 60 fps max settings and 1080p in 95% of games) still here and saying something typical and annoying as “Bu-but my PC version has more light objects! See?! I am superior and did’t throw my money in window!”. What a waste. And what about that cool story about 4k resolution from clowns which have at best machine for running 1080p games on max setting? And I am interesting since when 60 fps became nextgen standard? Maybe since some retarded kid found out that he can play in games from greenlight with 60 fps on his notebook?

  • darren evans

    difference between pc and ps4 is bigger than that of ps3 and ps4 imo

  • JasonB11

    What people seem to forget here, its true that the PC version is “slightly” better with minimal better shadows and greater view distance. Its hard to tell in those screenshots. But a PS4 is usually coupled with a big TV and surround system which makes the experience truly immersive. I have a high-end PC with Asus Rog Swift 27″ and GTX980 with Sennheiser HD600 headset and a very expensive soundcard. Yet i choose PS4 to use my surround system and 65″ TV. Better shadows and greater view distance is not enough.

    • Byron Shelby

      That doesn’t make sense, and if you’re indeed a PC gamer, that entire explanation just falls apart. You can also hook up your PC via a HDMI cable to play games on your TV. If you’ve never tried Steam’s Big Picture, you’re sorely missing out. That’s how I use my PC, on my 60″ HDTV. You can also get a wireless surround headset like an Astro A50, and connect a DS4 with a bluetooth dongle.

      The PC version also has better textures and reflection if you’ve noticed the wet surfaces from the photos. Nvidia will also provide exclusive graphical enhancements for their GPUs, which weren’t shown in those pics.

      In any case, I’ll be getting this on PS4 at launch, myself. NOT for your silly reasons. But, because all of my MGS friends are on PS4 and I’d like to meet up for MGO and play some base missions with them. I’ll save the PC version for a second playthough.

      • Poor PS Poor people

        It’s $0N¥ PauperStation desperation.

      • JasonB11

        Wireless surround headset? Headsets are 2 channel. My main reason is surround sound, you dont get that with headsets, only virtual sound. And yeah you could use hdmi to the tv, but how about sound? What about gamepad which this game needs? USB extension cable. Its just too much hazzle and not worth it. But if you are living in your boys room then its probably fine, not in a house.

        • Marco Antonio Netto

          It’s hard to believe that you have such a PC and don’t have controller for it. Windows has NATIVE suport for X360 Controller and Dual Shock 4 and any onboard sound card has full support to your surround system.

    • *Also On PC

      So you are going with the version with no ambient occulsion. 2x Anisoptric filtering and no anti-aliasing instead of running a HDMI or using a Steam Link?

      L-O-L

  • ChatWraithShichi

    I’m amazed at how scaleable the fox engine is. Last gen still looks phenomenal.

  • MouMouMou

    Suddenly wild horrible porting appear.
    horrible porting use “max 30 fps”.

    PC it’s super effective. PC is stun

    PC use rage, it’s not effective

    horrible porting use “max 720p”

    PC it’s super effective. PC is died

    • Poor PS Poor people

      Yeah…you ponyboys clearly aren’t educated.

      • datdude

        Samuel L. thinks you’re a loser. As does your mother. Come up for some air from that dusty basement son, your brain is suffering.

        • Poor PS Poor people

          I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and crap out a smarter comeback than what you just said, pauperboy.

          • datdude

            You? Smart? If you have a smart idea it would be the very first time. Loser. Back to the basement with you. Ask your mama what time is dinner.

      • MouMouMou

        Nope i don’t speak English , i speak Engrish .

    • MouMouMou

      for reminder “Batman™: Arkham Knight”

      what happen to master PC race? lose to console ? aren’t PC master race always doesn’t give fuck to developer ?

      • qwertyalguien

        Emmm,…. have you seen the Ground Zeroes port? I mean, even 3-4 year old PC can get better graphics than consoles there, it’s incredibly well optimized, and The Phantom Pain uses the same engine and mostly everything…..

        About Arkham Knight, Warner Bros always makes crap ports.

  • Dynasty2021

    LOL suck it console fags!

    • datdude

      Really? Your mom must be so proud……

  • Rudy

    Why everybody looks at the graphics as if that decides the success of a
    game.. Its the game play and the other features decides the victory of
    the game.. Graphics is just a contributing factor .. I love MGS1 with
    the box figures and i still enjoy it now.. If you are on PC with 4K
    resolution you are not gonna play something else..Its gonna be the same
    thing what others play on the consoles..

    • Dynasty2021

      Shut up peasant.

      You fags have been drooling over graphics all generation, now PC destroys consoles in another game and suddenly graphics dont matter?

      Fuck off.

      • Poor PS Poor people

        BINGO! Especially the hypocrite fake gamer $0N¥ paupers who’ve been condescending on Xbox gamers for the past 2 years.

      • Poor PS Poor people

        BINGO! Especially the hypocrite fake gamer $0N¥ paupers who’ve been condescending on Xbox gamers for the past 2 years when their brick is just as poor.

        • Tiberian_Fiend

          If console games’ graphics suck, it’s the gameplay that really matters. If console games’ gameplay sucks, it’s the story that really matters. Let’s face it: console kiddies are fake gamers who just want an interactive television.

          • Ben

            Lets face it. PC gamers are not “elitests” like they claim to be. They’re more likely a bunch of losers sitting on a chair eating chips.

        • datdude

          Tiny penis? Confirmed. Overcompensation for lack of physical assets? Confirmed. Loser in life? Highly probable. Good luck with that mess.

      • Thiago de Aguiar

        You care so much about graphics because that’s all PC has, PS4 is better in all the rest, now stop commenting stupid shit, mustard rice.

        • Poor PS Poor people

          $0N¥ PoS4 is better at NOTHING, brainwashed pauper.

          • Thiago de Aguiar

            That’s what your damaged braincells think, PC is just plain shit.

          • Poor PS Poor people

            Guess what, PoS4 is just plain POOR, which is even worse than shit.

          • datdude

            And yet, seemingly almost every year, a Sony exclusive wins goty. Sucks to be you, LOL.

  • drd7of14

    PC is definitely dominant in all matters, but it’s weird that each of the comparison shots, except PC/PS4, seem to be focusing in different places when taking the screen captures. It would have been nice to see the detail on the same playing field. Maybe that’s just how each version focuses, but it makes the view distance appear for blurry for PS3/360 for a different reason then it should. I except less detail in the distance, but not because the game has deliberately focused on the character model. The PS4/Xbox One are clearly not focused on the blurry character models. See what I mean?

  • realist

    incredible.

  • Tiberian_Fiend

    The PS4 version looks more like the PS3 version than the PC version. When does this “next gen” finally get here?

    • Poor PS Poor people

      Never, the “greatness” will never come.

      • Tiberian_Fiend

        Great profits await.

        • Poor PS Poor people

          Yeah, on hype, not on merit.

          • Tiberian_Fiend

            And lazy-minded consumerism.

          • Poor PS Poor people

            BINGO!

          • datdude

            Said the poor thing upset that his choice isn’t the people’s choice. Good luck with that.

          • datdude

            Said the jealous nobody, with no money, and no merit…LOL.

    • drd7of14

      I don’t know…When does “Next” anything get here? Never…?

    • Leeboyopm

      That cel shaded cartoon also in 900p

    • datdude

      When Naughty Dog and Guerilla says it does. Have fun not playing Uncharted and Horizon.

      • Sol Pro

        people play that shit?? damn that’s weak man. Id rather play some old n64 games on my x1 then those shitty games lol uncharted boring waste of time and i actually played it before

        • datdude

          Son, not even your own mama believes your bullshit. Good luck with that, LOL.

      • *Also On PC

        30FPS is not next gen

        60FPS is a standard, 30FPS is a joke.

        • datdude

          Riiiggghhhtttt….and one day you’ll be saying “120fps is a standard, 60fps is a joke”. See how foolish you are? Case opened, case closed.

          • *Also On PC

            120FPS will be a standard soon enough. Meanwhile POS4 will still chug away at sub-30FPS :^)

          • datdude

            Riiiggghhhtttt….and one day you’ll be saying “120fps is a standard,

      Bloodborne says hello. Did you enjoy the game? Oh, wait………..

      • *Also On PC

        Silky smooth 16FPS. LMAO

        Next gen is 60FPS, kid :^)

        • datdude

          These losers certainly are full of excuses, aren’t they? LOL..poor things….

          • Poor PS Poor people

            Beg some more pauper.

          • datdude

            Said the guy living in mom’s basement……

    • PUTEMnKASKETS .

      To be real with you 1 of those comparison shots looks like they put up the PS3 verson against PC. Because the shot were they are on MB with Snake in cover if PC is on the left then PS4 looked better.

  • xboxmaster

    ps4 looks better lmao , pc you need to get your shit together

    • 20/20 Vision ^^

    • Poor PS Poor people

      PC LOOKS BETTER! 4K 60fps.

        The why you buying even weaker Xbone version???? Makes no sense.

        • Poor PS Poor people

          Awww, poor low IQ $0N¥ pauper andy, still looking for Xbox conspiracies when the true superiority is in his face.
          Keep crying on every other site pauperboy, we’ll continue to laugh at your desperation.

        • *Also On PC

          What happened to the supercharged 8GB GDDR5 PC Andy?

          Why is the PS4 garbage?

          • andy

            Lol they never said anything about 4K gaming at the PS4 reveal either. Plenty of next gen full 1080p games on PS4 so far which is what I bought my new TV at the time for.

          • *Also On PC

            You bought a 30FPS Trash box when you could run a HDMI cable to your TV

            You really are a tool :^)

        Go away, inferior race, and get your weak platform out of here too.

        • Poor PS Poor people

          The only inferior race is the $0N¥ pauper plebs, of which you’re a part of. Enjoy playing the inferior version of this game on your Pauperstation POOR.

          • Thiago de Aguiar

            If is inferior, why MGO will only get online services for PC in January? PC mustard rice always late for the party.

          • Poor PS Poor people

            Hahaha, so because we get online later with more players and mod support and don’t have to pay for it, we are inferior? Check again delusional pauperboy.

          • datdude

            LOL. Poor thing. The ps4 version will outsell every other version…as usual. Master sales race. LOLOLOLOLOL!!!! Poor things……

    • Dope

      Check your vision homeboy, or check if you’re reading the labels right. I don’t care about these pointless was but it’s pretty clear PC looks the best up there.

        you check yours, PC fags be sitting too close to the screen for too long and your eyes are all messed up. Go to eye masters and get you a pair of screens

            Steam doesn’t get taken down by script kiddies like PSN, retard

            And Konami will move the date to the same day as consoles just like the single player because PC gamers requested it. And you have nothing :^)
