1080i is 1920x540 and 720p is 1280x720.

1920x540 might seem more intimidating, but 1280x720 is better if your TV supports it.

I always run games at 1080p. I find that if you have a good 1080p HDTV, it's always better to scale games to 1080p.

I am running the ps3 at 1080p. The game looks great, but at times there are annoying aliasing issues during cut scenes.

You know, what most people fail to realize is that many games, secretly, run at less-than-normal HD resolutions. Anyone remember that little game COD4? Apparently it, too, ran at 630p on both systems.

No one seems to complain about THAT game looking worse, on either system. In fact, I've never heard a single complaint about that game's graphics. Why complain about GTA IV's? In fact, I'll go one further and say, why complain about ANYTHING so minuscule?

I enjoy GTA IV and thats all that matters. I couldn't care less which console has a slightly higher resolution tbh.

The Xbox 360 version renders 216,000 more pixels per frame. If the game runs at 30fps, the PS3 version renders 6,480,000 less pixels per second.

I still don't see how that makes the 360 the better console, that's really to me a fanboyish way of saying the 360 is better tbh.

Ok, I know a way to end this, Can you play the game on the console of your choice? Is a few thousand pixels here or there going to destroy your enjoyment of the game? Does it REALLLY matter to YOU which version is slightly better at AA or which one can render a few more pixels on a car? This whole thread is just a case of fanboys argueing for the damn sake of it.

He only provided a fact and nothing more. No opinions were shared from him here.

I suppose, but you can't doubt someone else, such as a fanboy, would use it as firepower. And some added info is I'm a 360 guy, I haven't touched a PS3, so (although I'm not insinuating anything) please don't view me as a PS3 fanboy, or an Xbox fanboy for that matter.
