Gosh the graphics look so ugly on the 360... I can't wait to see how good it looks on PS4/XBone/PC (Waiting for PC ).

My theory when I heard this was that it's because it's trying to stream two sets of textures from the HDD, so it works slower, meaning pop-in.

That's probably why installing the play disk to a USB instead doesn't cause the same problem. It's not trying to compete for HDD access.

This problem likely wouldn't have occurred if the console HDDs were 7200RPM instead of being limited to 5400RPM.

Yeah I was gonna say that the HDD speed probably plays a roll here.

I didn't install the play disco on my 360 and I still saw all of the pop ins during the opening sequence... could be because I have an older Xbox but who knows. The good news is I haven't noticed any problems during actual gameplay.

Some gaming gurus have confirmed that Rock Star makes a PS3 version much better than Xbone or Xbox, PS3 is the lead platform so, buy the game on PlayStation 3 console to avoid texture issues and disc issue or whatever.

On the install it does.

It's *bleep*ing gorgeous, I don't see how you can those graphics are anything other than gorgeous.

It looks nice enough, for a 360. I wouldn't say "Gorgeous" though, I'll say that on the Next gen consoles (And PC ).

Well it's not going to be out on next gen, or PC for a while, so it's not really comparable.

You haven't even played it on 360. I'm playing it right now, it's ridiculously good looking.

Watching gameplay in 729p it does look amazing, though by the looks of it that video is 360p or something like that
