GTA four might have a greater frame-rate on Xbox One, however you’re most likely higher off taking part in on Xbox 360

GTA four on Xbox One backwards compatibility is sort of a peculiar factor.

Last week, the Xbox 360 model of GTA 4 turned playable on Xbox One thanks to the console’s backwards compatibility.

As is often the case with backwards suitable video games, the transition doesn’t all the time lead to a efficiency enhancements. Thanks to shops like Digital Foundry, although, we get to really discover out if Xbox One is the easiest way to play the sport.

The case of GTA four is difficult, as the positioning’s current evaluation revealed. According to Digital Foundry, although uncooked frame-rate has improved, this will not be such factor.

You can anticipate as much as a 5fps improve in some spots, but it surely’s the frame-pacing subject that sours the expertise. Xbox One delivers new frames at a charge very completely different from the Xbox 360 model’s, and far later than the usual 16ms and 33ms intervals.

“It feels choppier and more uneven, while controller latency – hardly one of the game’s strongest points on original hardware – sometimes feels significantly laggier on Xbox One. In certain areas, frame-pacing seems to normalise but by and large, in-game performance seems less stable,” the positioning famous within the evaluation.

Although these observations solely apply to the primary GTA four marketing campaign for now, not together with the Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned, one thing doesn’t really feel fairly proper.

“As things stand, GTA4 is one of a small number of back-compat titles that we’d prefer to play on Xbox 360 instead, and we hope that the back-compat team goes back to take a closer look at the frame-pacing issues here,” the positioning concludes.

The DLC add-ons might be examined later, however for now, issues don’t look promising.
