Red Dead Redemption enjoys a high-definition rendering resolution on the Xbox 360, but like Grand Theft Auto 4, shoots for a lower resolution on the PlayStation 3. Rockstar hasn’t quite got the knack of PS3 development, despite Redemption being a mighty fine looking sandbox game. Red Dead Redemption sports the same sub-HD resolution as its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto 4, on the PlayStation 3.
As reported by…oh wait, me at CVG, Red Dead Redemption natively renders at the equivalent of 644p or 640×1152 pixels. That’s the same resolution as the PS3′s Grand Theft Auto 4 and puts it on a 20 per cent disadvantage compared to the Xbox 360 game. This resolution was confirmed by the busy pixel counters of the Beyond 3D technical forums.
Still the framerate’s good, the graphics impressive and, most importantly ,the gameplay is brilliant. Red Dead Redemption looks like a must buy no matter the platform of choice. Find our Red Dead Redemption screenshot gallery here.
