Side by Side Comparison Technical Notes
This is somewhat of a less wild comparison in terms of the visual component. This is much more about the fluidity of the game, which is now perfectly smooth thanks to the extra power overhead that is present.

While the resolution is unchanged and very jagged around the edges, thanks to the Xbox 360 release having an uncapped frame rate we can now enjoy the full scope of GTA IV at a smooth 60fps on the modern console.

Now with that, it apparently causes some end game speed up that may impact conclusions, but that aside being able to enjoy the vast majority of this at an incredibly smooth frame rate is just golden to have available. Whether that’s the single player content, or online components if that’s your thing.
