    Video: How to run Grand Theft Auto IV at 1080p!

    Sponsored Links
    Here is a little how-to guide on how to run Grand Theft Auto at 1080p on the PlayStation 3. If you have a 1080p set and the game keeps booting up in 720p all you need to do is disable the other resolutions, I will show you how to do that now...

    Go to to the display option under settings
    Select video output settings
    Select HDMI
    Select custom
    Untick 1080i and 720p
    Press X
    Press X again
    Select finish
    Launch game

    Please note that you need a 1080p HDTV in the 40" range and preferably connected via HDMI.

    Here is a video:

    Great! Shame on me, i didn't even notice before, that the game was running in 720p only... My Samsung 40" doesn't show the resolution until i press the info button. But this workaround is very good, running 1080p now.

    Thank you for the info, great work!

    Is it really running in 1080p or does the PS3 upscale it?

    The PS3 is scaling it.

    The PS3 outputs GTA IV at full 1080p HD quality in crisp 7.1 Dolby Digital surround given the right setup. For those n00bs who aren't so sure "it says so on the box".

    I don't have a 1080 set myself only 720 but I would imagine that such a big title is bound have full HD output anyway.

    I will have to take a look at this when I get back into town. Do you notice a visual difference?

    By turning the 1080i and 720p off, what happens to other games that are in 720p?

    Well in my Opinion, the forced 1080p mode produces a very blurry, out of focus picture... It's not as sharp as the 720p mode, so i switched back to the original 720p, cause its much sharper.
