Capt CHAOS3738d ago

Still just preferred GTA3

Meus Resistance3738d ago

Like CoD4, Assassins Creed, and Orange Box etc etc. This will sell far more copies on the 360.

In fact you would have to be an idiot to get the PS3 version. With exclusive content available for 360 owners.

PirateThom3738d ago

I really don't think it will matter for the vast majority of people who don't read gaming news and don't know about it anyway, especially to those who still equate the PlayStation brand to gaming and haven't picked up a console yet. A lot of PS2 owners, maybe?

masterg3738d ago

Did you just call me an idiot?
Have have both consoles and I will get it on the PS3.
GTA has always been a PS game and for and a lot of others it will stay that way.
The PS brand made GTA huge. Xbox brand has done nothing for the series to make it what it is today.

wow... masterg , you are indeed an idiot. getting the ps3 version over the 360 version?! WTF?? i guess u dont care about the exclusive content and better online features the 360 has..

having to quit to read text messages... PHSSS fuk that! even if they fixed all the horrible online features... theres still nobody with mics on ps3

liquidsnake3738d ago

You two are idiots. Why would he buy it for 360 when it can RROD on his ass any minute. He is smart enough to buy it on the most reliable console on the market.

Meus Resistance3738d ago

liquidsnake you are an idiot.

Alvadr3738d ago

Im getting the PS3 version. So, im an idiot am I?

So your saying that I should go out and buy a 360 because Episodic content will available for DL 1 year later. An idiot would think like that.

Liquid Ocelot3738d ago (Edited 3738d ago )

The only idiots are you fake Meus and Chris_GTR1.

Why do you call other people idiots when all they are saying is that they are getting the PS3 version.

You just have to realize that not everyone has a 360 or wants one for that matter except for me i only got a 360 so i could play the exclusive games that are on it and all the multi-platform games that i buy are all for the PS3 including GTA4 and i don't care for the exclusive content ether.

Meus Resistance3738d ago

Alvadr and others. You should do yourself a favour and buy a 360. Then you would have a far better library of games to choose from.

Not only that you will have better multiplatform titles such as CoD4, Assassins Creed and Orange box. The PS3 versions of all these games and more are unplayable because of framerate, loading times, and screen tearing problems.

This is not the fault of developers. It is the fault of Sony for making such badly designed hardware and development tools. It is also the reason why GTA IV has been delayed.

This is not an opinion. This is fact. If you can't see the difference you are an idiot.

DTClown3738d ago

have fun with your extra content...if your box even lives long enough to see it! Have even more fun having to switch discs every time you go from one area to another! ha ha ha a haha ha hah ahah h a

Meus Resistance3738d ago

RROD is an urban myth it has affected no more than 5% of 360 owners. The problem is Microsoft not properly fixing machines that do break down.

mistertwoturbo3738d ago

Nobody is an idiot for getting one version or the other. The "exclusive" downloadable content you would have to pay extra anyway, considering if you'd even want to pay for something that should have came with the game for 60 big ones.

GITPWNED3738d ago

Go look at the other news article. He admits the PS3rd was the cause of the delay. Plus, they haven't been showing the PS3rd version at all. Just 360. Now you'd have to be completely braindead to buy the PS3rd version over the 360 version if you had the choice.

stupid fanboys.
