    The best advice given out yet...

    I doubt there will be any major differences between the two versions graphics or sound wise. M/soft definitely has acquired exclusive downloadable content from Rockstar for GTA IV so if this floats your boat then away you go.

    i have a 360 and a ps3 and will be getting the ps version, reasons mentioned above, but with all the pc games, ps3 games that are due out at that time and family commitments, i'll probably only have enough time to go through the game once and that will be enough, so all the extra content isnt a big deal, extra guns and vehicles - not too bothered, theres plenty of other games that'll be taking up my time.

    Apparently the only difference between the two versions is that the 360 will get two episodic content packs that the PS3 wont have.

    Therefore I'll be getting it for 360 (I don't have a PS3 anyway lol).

    The same reason that you would buy any console. That reason being, you want to play the games that are available for it

    Of course, there are those who are closed off to all other formats but the one they currently champion and it is these individuals who are missing out on a wealth of great games that are available. A number of said individuals seemingly have nothing better to do than attempt to provoke retaliatory responses in thread after thread after thread...

    hmmm i've heard of ps3's bricking aswell so although I'm a sony boy at heart... actually saying that I love my modded xbox to bits... but ps is where I started so bar megadrive2
    hmmm its tempting to get the xbox360 as my girlfriend was going to get me one free with a contract so only costs me the game.but saying that she could probably get the ps3 with a decentish contract now? not sure either way I should eventually end up with both consoles. and the ps3 doesn't have rumble because they wouldn't pay the people so *** stole it for 360 apparently?
    lol!!!
    also thinking about it... I love my GT/GTA/FF/ and especially MGS so yeah I think I've answered my own question... but then not really as I won't buy a ps3 as too expensive I'll get that with a contract for free and then pay the small sum for the 360 and GTAIV saves me money that way right?

    I'll have to agree there. Most people I've come across that have spent that huge sum of money on a PS3 seem to have an inner urge to b**** about other systems trying to justify their purchase. Quite annoying really.

    Hear hear. PS3 owners don't seem to understand that coming across as nobs isn't really going to encourage anyone else to buy a PS3.

    oh no didnt take long for the xbots to turn up!!!!

    yeah get a nice contract deal keef, nice easy way to get a ps3, (and the gf can chat on her new phone giving you lots of time for gaming), Maybe we should move this thread to the sony section.
    As for rumble, i dont miss it tbh!! You could get the gf to get an xbox on contract then get a nice cheap £300 us ps3, but saying that the xbox will break!!!

    I think you are missing the important question here...
    Do you have a 1080p TV?....No....? Then the reasons get considerably less.

    If you do, and the game supports it, then it might look better on the PS3, but by how much is anyone's guess. You'll just have to wait until its released.

    But in all honesty, if you buy a console based on one game, you need your head looking at
