GR: "Your choice for Grand Theft Auto V falls between Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3. Here's the breakdown of pros and cons for GTA V on each platform..."
I only had a 360 when I got GTA IV and RDR, but GTA V will be mine on PS3.
yep in leader we trust. plus free online bonus.
Guys...just get it on your platform of choice. The game should run brilliantly on both consoles. If you prefer the PS3- play it on that. If you prefer the 360- play it on that. No need to start berating others on niggly little arguments about why your platform will be better for GTA. You may have an intolerance for your fellow counterparts on this site but chances are, you'll do the same thing as everyone else on this game regarldess of the platform; ie get a hooker in your car, let her do her 'job' and then kill her and get your cash back. Don't lie to me...you did it before and you'll do it again. Also, the MP mode really will be something to behold so it might be a good idea to play on the platform where more of your mates play, if you have both consoles and are interested in the MP. No need to drag such an amazingly promising title down the fanboy dirt track.
I am going to continue the same practice I began when Sony purchase Gaikai if it is possible - and that is buying digital on the PS3. Owning the digital version will allow me to play it over the PS4 once Sony begins the streaming service here in the US.
Fuck the fanboyism shit. Get it on whatever console your friends get it on. I for one, will be buying it on 360 and I will happily pay for Gold to play with my friends.
"+Blu-ray The first indicator that your GTA V experience might be just a teensy bit better on PS3 is the system's Blu-ray technology, enabling Rockstar to ship the open-world epoch on just one disc. The entirety of GTA V's data will be in the drive, ready for the open-world engine powering Los Santos to pull from the disc and installed data." Yes, one disc, but the entirety of the save data wontbe on your HDD, the game is roughly 40GB I remember reading, it's an 8GB install size for PS3 and Xbox - the 8GB acts as the first disc so on Xbox, you won't neeed to disc switch - "+Hard Drive Every PS3 since launch has come with a sizeable hard drive, and certainly later models come equipped with much larger drives. If you bought your PS3 in the past 3 years, you're guaranteed to have at least a 120 GB hard drive as the second line Slim Model shipped with no drive less than that." Wrong, some PS3 model's are 12GB Flash with no internal HDD, the super slim model is siting right next to me (but now has a 320GB HDD in it - "+Xbox Friends My Xbox LIVE friends list is already populated with tons of friends made in Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer. This might not be true for you, but it is for me, which is why I'm including this factor on my list. " WTF? - "+Controller Grand Theft Auto V's refocused mechanics by establishing a responsive and entertaining core of gameplay for players. That means the controls will be more important than ever. If you've played Max Payne 3 on either Xbox 360 or PS3, you'll have a good idea of how shooting will feel in Grand Theft Auto V. Tuned triggers and fine manipulation of your aim will be required, " So I guess he's played it then? Don't startat me, I prefer PS, but I'm just sayinghe got a few things off.
I'm going to wait to see if a next-gen console version comes out. I'm a casual GTA fan, as in, I enjoy the games but I don't bother buying them Day One. I'm happy to play GTA5 a year later, which is when any PS4 port would've been announced. That said, GTA5 looks incredible. Looks like a lot of fun. The story missions were the weakest part of GTA4 and it looks like they're working extra hard to make the missions better this time around.
this article is a new low for fanboy pandering BS. This articles purpose was to give boners to 90% of the n4g userbase.
waiting for the inevitable PC version.
Imagine if it comes to PS4, you're gonna have to pay for online..unlike PS3 lol
Lol.... what the heck? This article said nothing. I didn't see any merits to the PS3 version. The only REAL merit I saw, that will have any impact on game play, is the PSN vs XBL comparison... and Xbox Live was given the +. So, how does this cement PS3 as the victor? Because you can use a headset, the Bluray drive, and "a harddrive". ahahahahaha. Fanboy logic. N4G you complete me.
They are called N4G analysts and devs. They make no sense to anyone else, just each other
Rockstar said that both versions are built from the ground up so there is no lead platform. Perhaps its because the Xbox version comes on 2 discs while the Ps3 one comes on 1?
Agreed. This is quite possibly the most useless and uninformative article I've ever seen on N4G, and that says quite a bit. But, it promotes Sony for no apparent reason, so everyone gets to agree with it and disagree with people like me that actual have the capacity to think for themselves.
wow you think of that all by you're self good boy here have a cookie lol
Wasn't their talks of a Wii U version happening?
Man I wish wiiu got this game, would be a huge boost to the system.
^It would, but it won't.
Same here. But the 360 version only needing to installing it from one disc then playing it from the other sounds real tempting.
Yeah, PS3 for me because a) I have a PS3, b) because I haven't had a 360 in years and c) because f**k M$ even if I did have one sitting in the closet!
don't forget free online play on the ps3 and carrying your trophies over to the ps4 which ps4 will be the most popular go to console. so its best that people start moving over to the ps3 and ps3 at this point.
I only had a PC at the time. The whole Steam --> GFWL --> Rockstar Social Club was one of the worst experiences ever. Glad i have a PS3 now.
What about these guys: http://i.imgur.com/sq9Jb5l....
Well, I guess I know which console I'll be getting this one on!
I'm getting the 360 version On Demand because I have a ****load of points to use. It shouldn't be that long of a wait for it to be on GOD. No disc changing for me :D
You don't have to change the disc anyway. The first disc on Xbox 360 is just an install disc.
I think that the only thing that matters outside where your online friends are is the performance on each system. So far the Xbox 360 proved to be superior for games running on the Rockstar engine, with better resolution and IQ. but we'll have to wait and see.
The controller and style of game is often the deciding factor for me. With a game like this that has so many shooting mechanics, the Xbox 360 controller always wins out my console war.
Normally I'd default to the controller for a shooter, but I want the open-world to run smoothly more than my thumbs.
You don't even have a PS3.
I disagree, if it was just a shooter, maybe, but there's so much like driving, tennis, and skydiving etc. Which I find is much better suited to the Dualshock in my opinion.
I agree dualshock is designed to be versatile and is the best option for a game such as gta 5. the x360 controller is only good for halo and maybe call of duty but the ps3 controller is just as good with fps as well. the dualshock is the most used controller ever in gaming and its only getting more awesome with the dual shock 4 for the ps4. ps1-ps4 dualshock1-duual shock 4. this is the controller that is built for games.
Lmao, you know the controller is all about personal preference, right? My personal preference happens to be that the DualShock is the worst controller on the market right now, and it will remain that way with the DS4 until somebody at Sony gets their head out of their butthole and puts the left stick in the proper position like EVERY OTHER CONTROLLER WITH AN ANALOG STICK EVER.
Did you not see the "in my opinion" sign? Also, Left analog like that is just bad for me.
Un holy one complained about thumb stick in the right position its about personal preference nothing more they are no such thing has thumb stick in the right position i hate the thumb stick not inline it feels awkward to me its like riding a bike and one of the handle is shorter than the other it makes no sense to me but ppl who only have a xbox are going to say the same about how the love vertical thumb stick over ps3 inline thumb stick xbots can brag about this all they want if Microsoft said we build a new control out of air they'll take that and run with it and say how good air controller is just like how they say the CLOUD lol wow talk about brainwash Xbot ltg serial code 3435 from grid unimatrix zero
I'm more comfortable with the PS3, so that will be my choice.
Sony has definitely been turning around and doing things right lately. Cementing this with GTAV is just another great thing they are doing.
Cementing what? This is an article written by some average Joe Blow that basically says nothing about anything. What did Sony do that was so great, exactly??
Here's hoping for a next-gen and PC versions.
I'm definitely getting it on PS3 but I would love to have this on PC myself just for the mods.
I second that man. I got a lot more value out of GTA IV on PC because of the mods. :]
I would've loved to have this on PS4
Nothing in this piece states how the PS3 version is lead platform.
People on N4G just read the headlines and jump to conclusions. This could be the longest leap I've seen in a long time: "Rockstar Games and Sony Computer Entertainment announced at E3 that Grand Theft Auto V will be features in an exclusive PS3 console bundle that would be available day and date with the game. This isn't exactly and indicator on the quality of the gameplay, but it does speek volumes about which piece of hardware the developers have been working with most." Ignoring the spelling/grammar errors, the last sentence is void of any logic. IF any unique bonus items/packages come with a game, THEN that console must be the primary dev platform? No. Sorry. Either way, who cares, if it's not coming to next gen/PC anytime soon - it will be the same game on either console. The only differences are the controllers and multiplayer infrastructure. 2 things that have nothing to do with R*.
the title is straight up wrong, nothing in the article details anything about the PS3 being the lead platform for gtav. If i buy gtaV, still holding out the hope of getting a next gen version, I'll most likely get in on the PS3 cause its on one disc, unless it looks/plays better on the 360. I'll wait for some comparisons after it launches. To the disagree where does it state (this article or any other article) that Rockstar developed gtav on the PS3 first and then ported it to the 360?
Yeah, except when it does.
Only evidence they showed was that the trailer was for the PS3 version and that means nothing so yea, you are right of course.
Agreed. However, it makes more sense to either co-develop for both platforms (which many companies do) or make PS3 lead due to the ease of porting to 360 vs porting 360 to PS3. I honestly don't think there will be any difference in quality though, whichever way they went.
The person that uploaded this is obviously a PSFanboy. I myself will be buying this on PlayStation because of disk swapping , a small reason but that's the only advantage they pretty much have .
You don't have to change the disc anyway. The first disc on Xbox 360 is just an install disc the second disc is to play the game just like forza.
Fanboy claims, sides with fanboy.
They both will have a mandatory 8gb of install on HD. The difference is the install speed will be faster on the Xbox360 due the speed advantage of DVD over Blu-Ray drive. So there is no advantage of disc swapping at all on PS4.
It all depends on the end user preference...There are no differences on either platform. With that said...360 for me. http://www.egmnow.com/artic...
Whoaw, sourcing the developer?
You down right crazy! disagree, disagree, disagree..
N4G needs a report button for misleading titles.
that superior ps3 version will be mine! also all my friends been switching to the ps3 for the free online and blueray. don't see how anyone is gaming on a hdtv without a blueray player in this day and age I mean seriously is this 2006 or something lol?
lol your name speaks for your bias comment , the ps3's only advantage is blueray( no disk swapping), Lol the ps3 is superior only if you count the whole 5 seconds it takes to swap disks on xbox. Gamer > Fanboy
The 2nd disc on the Xbox is only for the 8gb install. After the install you'll be playing from one disc with no need to change.
You don't have to change the disc anyway. The first disc on Xbox 360 is just an install disc the second disc is to play the game just like forza 4.
Better enjoy that "free" online while you still can because once the PS4 drops, ta ta for all that.
online is basically still free since they give you free games and discounts and such with it on ps4. They actually are giving me money in the long run over 1000+ dollars in savings.
So essentially, if you loose the second disc, you won't be able to lend it to somebody or play it on another console.
If it was the other way around, everyone would be crying about " how much Microsoft paid rockstar for it"
Lol thats N4G for you .
Do the Rockstar guys do the timed exclusive thing? That might be a factor for some if that's the case, since Microsoft always seems to win out in that regard.
There was timed-exclusive DLC for GTA IV on Xbox 360 but they're not doing that again.
This article is ridiculous. Rockstar already stated that the games will be virtually identical on both systems. The 360 version might have two discs as opposed to PS3's one but only for the mandatory 8gb install. After the install, you'll only be playing from one disc so that's a moot point.
