Sony Computer Entertainment has issued a statement in regards to the graphics issues surrounding the PSN release of the multiplatform video game, “GTA 5.” According to a report by Games Industry International (via Gameranx) on Sept. 20, the representative disclosed that the company is not aware of the problems.
He also suggested that the issue has nothing to do with the fifth main “Grand Theft Auto” installment having a large file size. You can check out some screenshots of the recently-released software product in the slideshow to the left of this article and the full statement below (courtesy of Games Industry International):
We were not aware of these problems. However, this isn't an issue we've encountered in any other title, even those which consisted of larger files, such as [The Last of Us].
“GTA 5” was made available on the North American Playstation Store on Sept. 17. Players originally had a hard time downloading the open-world action-adventure video game due to an error. Sony Computer Entertainment eventually fixed the problem, suggesting that players delete the old file and re-download the new one from the digital store front.
Although “GTA 5” can be downloaded and installed correctly, several issues have appeared in the digital version that is not present with the retail disc release. Players have reportedly encountered frequent pop-ins and texture loading problems.
In addition to the PSN and physical release on the Playstation 3, “GTA 5” also came out on the Xbox 360. The same issues from the PSN version of the game were also present on Microsoft’s current-generation console when players install the play disc on the hard drive.
