GTA 5 Xbox 360 or PS3? The Lead Platform Fuel

From the article: "GTA IV was being developed for Xbox 360, because the PS3 didn't arrive the market until a year after the launch of the Microsoft console. They had/have a whole year more experience with the Xbox than with the PlayStation. Not to mention that the developer kit of Sony was allegedly terribly organized. The not so good organization and the lack of experience (in comparison) are the reason why Rockstar games kept looking better on the Microsoft console." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Xbox 360 of course, I want to have a bad experience, it's challenging

All the footage has been running on PS3. That's already a sign. GTA made its name on PlayStation and that's where I'll continue playing.

Be cautious guys ps3 is infamous of inferior multiplatform games. Remember Skyrim ? An awful inferior product which was developers fault but aswell as the limited ram of the PS3.

GTA5 huge game it could have problems on the PS3 hope it doesnt. Remember GTA4 was best on Xbox 360. Plus Xbox Live will deliver far superior online experience. Cross game chat, universal invites etc.

LA Noir!! This is rockstar!

Getting it on 360 cause thats where my friends are at. And its my own policy that multiplats go to my 360.
Gran Touring  +   905d ago
That's a pretty stupid policy
theWB27  +   905d ago
It's a stupid policy if yours goes to PS3.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   905d ago
Eh might be to some. But thats how I do things. My 360 is for multiplats and Gears. My PS3 is for exclusives and blu ray player.Plus most of my friends play on 360 so for multiplayer I always choose 360. Its pretty much how I ran things this gen and it worked for me. Next gen is another story however.

Makes sense. No point buying on PS3 if most of the people you play with are on a 360. Let the fanboys get angry all they want.
Snookies12  +   905d ago
It's not a stupid policy as Gran Touring states. You most certainly have the right to choose which system you prefer games on. Though I'm curious as to why that is your policy? I mean, whenever I was choosing between platforms with multi-plat games, I would go for what looked to be the superior version. I think that's the most logical choice. Either that or whatever system more friends are getting it on (provided you're looking forward to a certain game's multiplayer) or what controller you like best depending on the genre of game. These should be the deciding factors when choosing. (In my opinion of course.)

Thx for being sensible. It mostly comes down to friends and multiplayer. If I get a multiplat game that happens to be single player honestly the differences between 360/PS3 to me are just barely noticeable for some games if it all. It really dosent bother me either.
Transporter47  +   905d ago
You will be missing out on the better version, when they do PS3 to 360 its the best for both sides but the Ps3 version comes out on top.
-Foxtrot  +   905d ago
Friends shouldn't dictate on what games you get
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   904d ago
They dont really. My friends buy a lot of games I dont care for such as Minecraft,COD,Terraria, borderlands 2 etc. GTAV in particular happens to be a game I can agree on with them.
user7402931  +   905d ago
ps3 for the superior multiplats, and thats where all my friends play.
Foxgod  +   905d ago
GTAIV was superior on the 360 tho...
user7402931  +   905d ago
gta 5 ps3 is lead. so it will be the best version.
Perjoss  +   905d ago
Yeah it ran at a sub HD resolution and the frame rates were crap, I actually owned and played both versions. This is coming from a neutral as my console of choice this gen was the 360 but I'm switching to PS4 come autumn.
StanSmith  +   905d ago

There has been cases in the past where the lead platform is worse. Also, just because Rockstar are showcasing the PS3 version, don't assume it's the lead platform seen as Sony and Rockstar have a marketing agreement in place.

One more thing... This is Rockstar we're talking about. They play to both platform's strengths just like they did with GTA4 and previous GTA's before that. They don't deal with ports. They enchanced the games for their specific platforms.

Basically, both will have differences, but in the end it will only be people's opinion on which they prefer. Neither will be better than the other.

Was smoother on the 360.

But anything xboxone can run now. PS4 will run quite easily. Much beefer GPU.

They will code for XBOXONE and PS4 will just run it better imo.
pixelsword  +   905d ago
@ fox

No it wasn't; numerous sites said in the reviews at the time that better graphics, draw distance, and fewer pop-ins were in the PS3 version.

I'm pretty sure the PS3 is the lead platform. At least I remember hearing it somewhere.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   905d ago
I'll be getting the Special Edition for PS3. Dat steelbook. Regardless of the platform, there's going to be fun times ahead.
SIRHC13  +   905d ago
Rockstar finally discovered how to make use of the PS3's Cell power. Took them an entire gen, but they did it.
theWB27  +   905d ago
The same game is releasing for the Xbox360. Both games require 8 gig installs.
SIRHC13  +   905d ago
How is that relevant to my comment? I'm strictly referring to the game's performance on PS3. Never implied it was an outright different game.
theWB27  +   905d ago
I could see if they had problems with the cell architecture and they finally figured it out at the end of this gen.

But they did the same with LA Noire...lead platform.

So taking advantage of the cell would be taking advantage of it's power. I didn't say it would be outright different either...but there are no technical advantages on the PS3. So the aren't making any extra use of the cell's power. It's statement that is.

.... Does it really matter that much... I bet it will be hardly noticible ... Then all of you ps3 and Xbox douches can stop whining ... Mostly you ps fanboys
KwietStorm  +   905d ago
My lead platform is PS3, because that is what I will be playing it on. And that's all that matters. End of.
lastdual  +   905d ago
GTA IV and RDR were better on 360, LA Noire was better on PS3. As for GTA V? I honestly doubt that there will be much difference.

This one comes down to your preferred controller and what console most of your friends own.
kma2k  +   905d ago
as a gamer who has had my ps3 laser fail & has both systems. When given the choice i try to buy for the 360 just because of the install game feature so the game can run off the hdd & not use the laser constantly.
Psychotica  +   905d ago
The PS3 for now then will be traded in once the PC version comes out..

Blah blah blaaaahhhh hello ps4 oit soon, who honestly cares to much of this gen its time for new game wars on new engines guys come on, ooooo ps4 alllllll the way♥♥

Xbox one has blu ray, sony owns the rights to blu ray hmmmmmmmm good old sony shaft ms were you can lol.
StanSmith  +   905d ago
Your first stupid point was trying to act like GTAV is a game not worth keeping your PS3/360 for.

The second is where you assume Sony owns the rights to blu ray. They don't. A number of companies own the rights. Blu ray was not created by Sony alone.

The Founding Companies of Bluray are:
Sony Corporation
20th Century Fox
Hewlett Packard
LG Electronics
Panasonic Corporation
Mitsubishi Electric
Samsung Electronics

So Sony haven't shafted MS in the slightest!

PS3. I'm not a "multiple discs" kind of guy. >:o] I assume the game could've been even bigger if the crap dvd wasn't still holding us back.
BlingBlaine  +   904d ago
PS3 for the best experience, just look at EVERY video they showed was ps3 footage.

I dont want framerate issues from a console 8 years old (Xbot350) and hasnt had a good game since gears 2!
