Someone is streaming GTA V on PS4

Its because the damn story mode is built around auto aim. I hope Rockstar fine tunes their shooting and doesn't build around auto aim next time.
Actually I think the story (and the game in general, such as police chases and free roam) are so much better on free-aim. Not only free aim but default (non-DLC) guns also, too. So no rocket launchers, no grenade launchers, very limited grenade use, and no using the excessively powered DLC assault rifles from the start of the game.

I got my butt kicked a lot even on auto-aim the 1st time I played the game but after beating it a few times, I find the missions (and shootouts in general) so much more fun on manual aim and just using SMGs/basic assault rifles. Auto-aim or r/g launchers make it so easy once you get used to the controls. The biggest thing is just getting used to the movement/cover controls and learning to not run-and-gun (live and die by cover). When cops got shotguns or NOOSE got SMGs, you die so fast outside cover but if you place safe with cover, game is balanced well (and super fun) on manual aim with just rifles.

Hi guys,
I made a complete gif collection from some of my footage of the streams. Unfortunately, I cannot make a new thread so I'll have to post this here, unless a mod can assist.

Enjoy!

I would use free aim, if you didn't have the fragility of an ArmA soldier.
GTA ain't ArmA, i can't be dying in two shots, FFS.

Damnit I don't want to buy GTA V again.

Can anyone show high traffic density?

Blind fire is super useful in this game if you're playing with free aim. It's a lot more fun than with the lock on.

Dreamlock, how is the frame rate compared to last gen? Thanks for the gifs.

The first stream linked in the OP was of very poor quality. Based on the other one I saw it looked smooth as hell. Stable fps without noticeable drops despite blowing stuff up. Looks like they got the performance sorted out alright considering it could get very frustrating if you encounter framedrops while driving or shooting in first person.

Oh, and loading time has been reduced - it's a huge difference.
 
Never played GTAV, but doesn't it use some sort of lock-on system for aiming? Does that not work in FPS mode?

It's in for the first person viewpoint as well (or at least is able to be toggled), when the reticle is within a certain distance to the target it will snap and lock to the target. I noticed it during one of the streams.
 
GTA V was already considered an amazing game. Now with first person mode, this game sounds ridiculously good. May even top last of us for me. Hype really high right now.

Sure not much traffic downtown LS...

that hospital is basically where one of the main freeways enter LS. on PS3 often you seem more cars than this stream showed, even. It was morning, too, about 8-9am and traffic is usually pretty busy around then.

I was expecting more traffic density.

Awww, man

Well, maybe we will see the kind of traffic density at night on the actual freeway at certain points like the E3 trailer. I hope. That was easily my favorite aspect of it.

Was this confirmed to be footage from the PS4 version or is it the PC version?

I just can't decide if I want to pick this up on PS4 and/or the PC version which I would prefer. The first person footage looks so tempting to just pick it up.

I feel like this .gif would be enough to sway anyone not fully convinced by the beauty of first-person perspective.

I suspect that it only has high traffic density at certain periods of the day like Rush Hour.

That's all that matters, and I think that's all anyone could ask for. That the PS4 version does actually show that much traffic at certain times (rush hour) in certain places.
And that nothing has actually been scaled back from the E3 trailer, assuming R* was telling the truth and not showing PC footage.
