Doodle, again, the 'proof' you're showing is photoshopped or whatever.

Have you ever thought of the stupid thing that someone or MAYBE YOU has made two accounts on another website with exact the same usernames as mine and POGs to make it seem as we're the same???

ANd are you stupid or what? I've tracked that IP in that JPG...

189.133.174.141

Is located in MEXICO. I am living in The Netherlands you tard.

OMG

I suddenly see the same stuff back from

Doodle

as was with

Nasim
Schmee

That guy with multiple accounts. Report Doodle for adding all kind of fake stuff, fake alternative sources, whatever.

heyheyhey3220d ago

@TheMART

are you dizzy? how the f**k are those photoshopped?

those are official UK sites that i and many others have been using for years

and how is WHSmith major for games? they are major for books and magazines, but hardly anyone uses them for games

there game section consists of a small shelf with a few games

Phil Harrison Mkllll3220d ago

£5.00 more!!!
IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!!! ;-D
Don't mind paying more for the better PS3 version(Well xFlop360 bots say there version is better and they have never seen it yet to!)

Pain3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

@Jack ur a fool.

" Oh you mean GT4:P without damage models and in game chat and lobbies... Yeah somehow I think you're wrong. Try again little kid "

Get a clue yanky racer boy. GT is a Sim not a arcade, so Car dmg is joke. go back to Burnout.

And No Chat lobby's eh? wtf do u think Home is? or for that mater GT online Server's u programing those?
No? so u dont no what Poly has for GT in terms of online. so Nice try Boy.

Jack Meahoffer3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

"GT is a Sim not a arcade, so Car dmg is joke. go back to Burnout"

Let me give you a lesson little one...

Sim is short for Simulation.

sim·u·la·tion :

1. imitation or enactment, as of something anticipated or in testing.
2. the act or process of pretending; feigning.
3. the representation of the behavior or characteristics of one system through the use of another system, esp. a computer program designed for the purpose.

When you're driving a car and you wreck into a wall does the car not show damage? Oh thats what I thought. OWNED

"And No Chat lobby's eh? wtf do u think Home is?"

So WHEN is Home coming out again? Oh whats that? You have no FRACKING idea? Don't know if it will even work when it does? Oh thats what I thought. OWNED

spandexxking3219d ago

awwww let the xbox boys have this one. afterall its the only thing they've got against the ps3. your fuking sad guys get over it.

zapass3219d ago

Dude, you just earned yourself the title of most frustrated baboon on n4g: congratulations! It is always fun to see angry jealous dorks with no sense of humor losing their cool. You xbots have so much to prove, it's a lot of wasted testosterone. Don't you have girl friends?
I didn't think so... dorks jerking off on game sales stats are even less fun than a dildo, ha!

BTW, could you lookup something else in your weakipedia?
mas-tur-ba-tion

You'll learn some valuable info about your condition and how to handle 2008: the year of the massive pwnage by the mighty PS3. It's gonna be long and frustrating for you, but delicious for us who have fun playing games.

Gam713219d ago (Edited 3219d ago )

Hey DooDoobrains.

In the shops over here ALL ps3 games cost around £10 more and thats what they're talking about.

Stop doing the balONY fabgirl thing of taking something marginally related and passing that of as not only fact on the topic but also the rule.

Go into game or gamestation (which is now better than game! who would've thought that a few years ago) and you'll see that.

But I recommend everyone buy from anything from play if you don't already. It's just cheaper.

And why does Doodlebug have 2 bubbles then 4?

Also for doodlebrains having ago at someone for multiple accounts I ask, why aren't you using you niccage account anymore phil? sorry DooDooBrains.

Lol, well i won`t be buying it from WH`Upyourass`Smith. However i will be buying it for 39.99 at loads of other shops online or not.

sonarus3220d ago

well lets consider a couple of things first. I think it depends on the retailer but let us assume it doesn't. This whole argument is based on, whether consumers will be buying 360's for GTA4 or ps3's for GTA4. 5 extra pounds will not stop anyone from buying a 160 pound plus console. So why all the excitement over such ordinary rumors?

Mr Playboy3220d ago

As Rockstar said If you want to have the full experince of GTAIV you should get the 360 version

I know it not that much but still DLC is more important than anything to me

Jack Meahoffer3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

It's as if a thousand Sony fans heads assploded at the same time!

My friend in the UK said PS3 games are normally a little more expensive. Why is this so supprising?

Better call in the SDF reinforcements! This is a travisty!

CORRECT MR PLAYBOY! If you are a GTA fan you actually PLAY the missions you will want the exclusive content. Only people buying the PS3 version are hardcore Sony fans. Everyone else will buy the version with the most content.

The Killer3220d ago

and that rockstar wants to get the same amount of profit from the ps3 version as the 360 version!!

Amanosenpai3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

"If you are a GTA fan you actually PLAY the missions you will want the exclusive content. Only people buying the PS3 version are hardcore Sony fan"

The interesting part is that SONY does not give a f**k about this... SONY doesn't need to expend hardcore amounts to sale more multiplat games, when selling SCEE titles like hot bread.

Asurastrike3220d ago

"Only people buying the PS3 version are hardcore Sony fans. Everyone else will buy the version with the most content."

Yeah, unless we only OWN a PS3. Dumbass.

gambare3220d ago

This reminded me a lot the situation of DMC4, we just have to wait and see the final sales.

yesah3220d ago

that made me lol so much.

but i read somewhere that on ps3 it wad HD and on 360 it was SD?
i think they changed it but im not sure, so maybe thats why? anyone know?

robep33220d ago

LOL games can be bought at same price see links whatever people
say you can always get the PS3 version of a game for same as 360.

jadenkorri3220d ago

both ps3 and xbox360 versions are priced the same, Ive pre-ordered mine already and paid full price...same as 360 version...so this article is a waste...and yes i read the stupid article and saw the stupid pic...so don't comment omg I'm wrong...fact of life...your wrong...
people complain about fanboys of ps3, then 360 fanboys do this...when will it end?

sonarus3220d ago

the lack of ps3 bad news has really gotten to these 360 fanboys. See as they scramble for the slightest bit of bad news

bluegoblin3220d ago

from what i hear the quality of the ps3 version is better due to the fact that all the information in the 360 version is compressed.Thanks blu-ray =D

Cicinho3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

I pre ordered mine for £34.99 on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gra...

NO_PUDding3220d ago

My main point here is that, I really don't care.

People are gettign GTA IV for whatever system they want. If they think DLC that you ahve to pay for, is worth more than future proofing your entertainment system, then go with it. If you have both consoles, I would actually still go with PS3 version, Sixaxis is going to be used in a special way Houser said.

And £5 is not soemthign I am goign to moan about, especially sice I'll shop fir it in Woolworths or somewhere where the prices are even, and let me tell you it is only Woolworths.

I am getting the PS3 version, and I haven't even pre-ordered, day one purchase instead.

zane5473219d ago

People still buy games from WHSmith? more fool them.

-EvoAnubis-3219d ago

"As Rockstar said If you want to have the full experince of GTAIV you should get the 360 version

I know it not that much but still DLC is more important than anything to me"

In that case, you concede that the 360 version of the game is in fact more expensive than the PS3 version. Unless, of course, you think that MS will be GIVING the content away.

I am a new user but i must say that there was no need to approve this Dubious story since the major UK retailers like Game/play and HMV are pricing both the versions at the same price

patlike3220d ago

It absolutely isn't. I took those photos myself in the UK this afternoon.

Iamback3220d ago

Thats not the point, problem is that this topic is making it sound like all retailes will have this price difference, when we all know that it isnt true

General Pinky3220d ago

It is in the shops guys...so clam down...it is just more money for Sony...not microsoft

jXales3220d ago

Sony isn't getting any of that extra money. It's going to the retailers.
