GTA4 on PS3

So I got a PS3 and GTA4. Playing on a 1080p Panasonic Plasma and there is shit loads of pop

When I first started the game it took about 10 minutes to copy ~8GB to the hard disk so I am confused to hell as to why there is so much pop up in the back ground?

Please tell me I am doing something wrong because the games isn't playable for me this way

do you have it set to 720p or 1080p? i recommend 720p. make sure the disc is clean. i didn't experience too much pop-in.

What the hell do you mean by "shitloads of pop"? I played GTA4 on a 1080p Panasonic plasma and thought it looked fine.....not as good as some other games though.

By popup I mean items in the background. Like you used to get on the N64. I will try dropping it down to 720 but I don't see how that would make any difference as the game is rendered at 640 and then just upscaled to 720/1080.

I have no idea why that'd be happening. I play it the same as daliavh, and the only noticeable pop-ins I get are when I roar down a road at max speeds in a sports car and require places to load faster than the game can handle.

Weird, I played in 720p (the game's native res) and I rarely, if ever, had any pop-ups, even throttling about full speed.

there really isn't that much pop in for me. Considerably less than when I played on my friend's 360

I set it to 720 and tried it and it seemed much better so I set it back to 1080 to see if it dropped again but now it is perfect! wtf is going on

Perhaps it was just the first run or something or perhaps the popup is only in that very first bit where you drive to the safe house for the first time?

Either way it seems to be fixed so I can actually start playing the game soon

all the comparison videos tend to show more pop-in on the 360 actually.

meh, i didn't notice it once playing on the 360. Honestly, my attention was always on my car, and not the billboards 3/4 up the screen.

QFT, if the developers really wanted it to run at 1080p it would without having to force it.
