360 or PS3: One GTA V Version to Rule Them All?

Whenever a highly anticipated game is set for release on two competing systems, fanboy wars usually follow. GTA5Cheats looks at this phenomenon in the context of the impending release of Grand Theft Auto V. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

I hate swapping discs so it's a no brainer for me as to which version I buy. If GTA5 is as big as they say it is then it will come on at least 5 DVDs for Xbox and that's just unacceptable. What is this, 1997?

PC

I would buy it for PC, but tradition for me is playing GTA on Playstation.

Also, I only have an HD 5570 lol.

This article says 360 or PS3. Where the hell did you read PC? Get out.
MmaFan-Qc  +   536d ago
i own a top not gaming pc so the obvious will be the pc version, then again if there's no pc version on launch, i will simply go with the ps3 version since i stopped to buy multiplateform games for the 360 a long time ago.

@MmaFan-Qc

It's worth noting that the ps3 version of gta4 was the worst version.

PC for me too this time
jon1234  +   536d ago
Sucks to be a pc player for gta games... You guys have to wait usually a year for tthem to bring it to pc, while everyone else enjoys the game... But I guess you'll get to play it in ultra high resolution , so it's worth the wait.......
TheGamerDood  +   536d ago
But there's no release date for PC version. lol So it's PS3 for me.
ratcop22  +   536d ago
Hahaha I just read this one South park quote. If you don't like America then you can Gheet out! So swap America for consoles.

@rupert

Was it the insane amount of pop in or lack of graphical effects (present in PS3 version but missing jn 360 version, like cars for example) that made it a better version?
Septic  +   537d ago
So its 5-10 second disc-swapping vs half an hour (generous) of mandatory installs? What is this, a PC?
TheModernKamikaze  +   537d ago
Reason I picked PS3 is because I only want 1 Disc, or I get OCD.
Riderz1337  +   536d ago
No it's 2013, and you still have to disc swap. I loled.
juandren  +   536d ago
We'll talk again when it's 2AM and you're no longer sitting upright in the couch and need to get up to change a disc
Skips  +   536d ago
"half an hour of mandatory installs"

LMAO
jessupj  +   536d ago
"half an hour"

GTFO troll. These days, the longest install times are 10 mins tops. Normally less than 5 mins.

And I would much rather go through a one time 5 min install while I make a coffee, than having to keep getting off the couch when I'm comfy and breaking the immersion.

There's nothing more immersion breaking than seeing "please insert disk 2".

It's a no brainer which way is better.
bryam1982  +   536d ago
At least the mandatory install is just once while you'll be swiping disc forever lol
BattleTorn  +   536d ago
Halo 4 had multiple discs. And after their installed, there was no disc swapping, ever.

*gasp*
CommonSenseGamer  +   536d ago
Any reason to bag one console over the other, its plain ridiculous. Installing the game means little to no disc swapping so why is this an issue? PC gaming is still largely DVD based yet Sony fanboys don't bag the PC for having to install.

For me, if I get this on a console I'll go with the version with the least jaggies, best frame rate and draw distance. Oh, and least amount of screen tearing. Wow, disc swapping seems insignificant to some of the things that should have been left behind with previous gen consoles.
Campy da Camper  +   536d ago
That's what minions are for.
SJPFTW  +   531d ago
there won't be any disc swapping because you can install the game on the hard drive like a PC.

installs are better than jaggies, pop-in etc. Things that made the PS3 GTA IV inferior to the xbox version. Also games run better off the hard disk, no risk of laser burns and disc scratches.

But good try though.
Prcko  +   537d ago
PS4 or PC
KentBlake  +   537d ago
Neither. PS4 or XBox 720.
Root  +   537d ago
PS3 for me

I've played GTA always on PS consoles I'm not going to stop now.
Wuket  +   536d ago
Playstation seems to be the most popular choice so far
Kingdom Come  +   536d ago
On N4G? Is that really surprising?
t377y000  +   536d ago
nither. wii u, ps4, or x8
juandren  +   536d ago
It won't be called X8.
t377y000  +   535d ago
xbox 8
ceballos77mx  +   536d ago
Depending on the dlc news.
waltyftm  +   536d ago
PS3.
Shadow Man  +   536d ago
will the 360 have multiple disc?

either way i hope both run in 720p unlike gtaiv which ran in sub-hd on the ps3.
plaZeHD  +   536d ago
PlayStation 3. Why? Because it just doesn't feel right to play a Grand Theft Auto game on Xbox 360. No hating or joking. I played Grand Theft Auto 4 on Xbox 360 and I couldn't play it was unusual for me, I sold it the day after and bought it for PlayStation 3. I know it sounds idiotic, but it is just how it is.
josephayal  +   536d ago
XBOX 360 and PS3
for some reason, i think that when a game comes in multiple discs, it's like i'm getting my moneys worth
PersonMan  +   536d ago
That's some messed up logic. Blu-rays are more expensive than DVDs. Hah
cee773  +   536d ago
@Jose

Bluray= scratch proof 50GB of storage (over 100's of GB in the future)

DVD= scratches too easy wipe one with your shirt and see what happens,
9GB of storage

You rather have 3 toyotas's or 1 Ferrari ?

MeatAbstract  +   536d ago
Wow PC gamers get a lot of stick around here for saying PC.

I'd certainly get it on PC and yes, if the option was there which I know it isn't YET.

As for the console version, I'll see. In the looks department, GTAIV wasn't as good on the PS3 as the 360. I'd know, I got on the PS3 and then saw my friend playing on his 360 and was like "That does look better".

However, that was 2008 when not all the multiplats for the PS3 were good and some companies still didn't have a handle on the machine, which they do now. So again, we'll see as they could be pretty much identical when they come along.

Don't get me wrong, I am busy building an awesome rig now. I didn't make my comment to knock PC gamers at all. I love the PC. I am somewhat of a graphics whore and love it to just take 5 minutes and look around in a game and be mesmerized. PC gaming just feels really generic sometimes. I wish there were more "game-changing" IPs being released on PC
hennessey86  +   536d ago
Ill go with the best console
Version, I don't care about disc swapping so if it's the 360 ill go with that version.
PersonMan  +   536d ago
PlayStation®3 for me. Disc swapping is a minor inconvenience, but if you have both options, why go for the one with an inconvenience?
IronFistChinMi  +   536d ago
It hasn't been confirmed that the 360 version will ship on multiple discs.
jon1234  +   536d ago
Although that is true, the way rockstar games have been popping out, and by the way they're describing the size of the city... It's going to be in multiple disks, but maybe they can remedy that with an install
PersonMan  +   536d ago
LA Noire was 3 discs and Max Payne 3 was 2 discs. With the size of the city in GTA V, it will definitely take up more than one disc on the xbox 360. It will most likely be on one disc for PS3 though.
Veneno  +   536d ago
Max payne 3 was 2 discs?! Crazy.

cause he may have more friends on XBL than on PSN for MP gaming. it's a possibility u just never know.

If they perform the same, I'll get it on 360 and pick up the pc version later in a Steam sale.
demonddel  +   536d ago
Xbox 360 all the way for me
RuleofOne343  +   536d ago
tradition for me is playing it on Microsoft DOS/Windows

I remember playing gta2 on pc but after gta3 this just feels right on ps.

What happens if I lose one of the discs??
thebudgetgamer  +   536d ago
I will probably go with the 360, as I like the way it controlled on it more than with the Dualshock.
black911  +   536d ago
If the PS3 version isnt superior in every way GTA is Dead.
