A new poll conducted by some of the top blogs in the AOL network found that many people would rather play Grand Theft Auto 4 on the Xbox 360 rather than the Playstation 3. Find out their reasons why!
poor people that have no PS3 prefer to play it on Xbox 360 Rich people like me and my other homies prefer to play it on the PS3 and I also have both consoles :) and these polls are all Fuked up PS3 pre-orders are beating 360 pre-orders not just 2:1 but many and I read it somewhere in here. Ahahah Bullsh!T
GWN: Poor People prefer playing GTA IV on 360!!! ;-D
I'm a PS3 fanboy so any poll against the PS3 is rigged. Suddenly the install base difference is 3:1?? Thought GTA IV would sell more on PS3 because "When you think GTA you think Playstation". LOL Admit it the DLC is going to make th 360 version sell more... Doesn't matter if its US or world wide. The PS3 is going to be owned when it comes to GTA IV. Especially with no home integration! And MSG4 couldn't even run a beta for two seconds its going to be a sales flop. Its own creater is disappointed in the game trash talking it. Hear come the RROD jokes because thats ALL YOU GOT.
Another way to look at the data is to either say that people on the AOL network prefer the 360 or there are simply more 360s in the US. And the worldwide numbers are way too biased in this "article": "There have been 17.7 million more Xbox 360 units sold worldwide compared to the 9.5 million sold for Playstation 360." They deflated 360 numbers by less than half a million, but PS3 numbers by almost 2 million.
actually, rich people have both consoles, and, notoriously, 99% of the people who own both consoles will buy it on 360, like all other cross plats. get raped.
17.7 million more Xbox 360 units sold worldwide compared to the 9.5 million sold for Playstation 360. With over 8 million extra people owning an Xbox,
You know GTA4 is getting so much news coverage and free advertising from MS and Sony. They don't even need to promote their own game lol. Polls aren't real proof.
I saw that too. The Playstation 360 part. That's a slip up.
Analyst predictions, and manufacturer sales targets aren't proof... But polls ARE proof. Polls query the consumer. And if someone is willing to take the time to participate in a poll, they are obviously interested in the subject matter. That is one of the best way to get a feel for the market. Why do you think polls play such a big part in political races? The polls always reflect a near-perfect picture of what the outcome would be if the election were to be held that day. Please, keep the unfounded ignorant comments to yourself, and go educate yourself.
who here has an aol account??? i bet 90 percent of people here don't.. and who goes on aol polls???? lol must be losers like those who work in microsoft
Tell that to your government, every news outlet, and elected officials.
not sure about your numbers either. ps3 has nearly sold 12million. 360 is 18.6million.
What drugs are you on? share some.
"People prefer playing GTA IV on 360" and the game isn't even available to buy yet!!!! HA! HA! HA! The stories, articles and headlines are starting to get hysterical!
forget the console war, its now the Gta-love poll war. everybody who is anybody or even a nobody is conducting polls... edit: @playstation and x360 pr people: get the f**k off the N4g, we hear you already... seriously, its bodering madness with all these amateur polls, and game websites calling up retailers and asking how sales are going...jeez...
reminds me of something you would read in a tabloid. Manufactured garbage just to get hits.
that AOL is an American company most likely conducting this poll on American users, we all know the US is MS territory.
both consoles will have the game all gamers get to play it,and when mgs4 hits worlwide sales of ps3 should boost up like an like a man stuffing a chilli up his ass
that's pretty stupid, Aol's a global company...its probably got customers in all the richest countries.. ps. I reckon only some parts of the actual article are true and other parts of it is complete bull. just some journalist taking a quick scrawl of the internet and wrote the article...because they conducted a huge poll on ps3 and x360 users and found more x360 users are going to choose to play GTA4 on x360, do you see the logical dilemma there?
i could have sworn AOL means America OnLine
In Australia AOL is an isp named AOL. AOL is a global company and bloggers come from round the world not just america.
yeah, of course. that's why the ps3 version is selling much better than the 360 one.
It's not even out yet. Or unless your referring to pre-sales, which has the 360 selling better here and the ps3 elsewhere.
Geeesh, all these articles. The 360 is the way to go, or no the PS3 is, or this poll said this and the other said that, 10 reason to buy GTA on the PS3 or 10 reasons to buy it for the the 360, uh er er...well you get the picture. All this articles do amount to .....
The shootout with two police officers... never seen that one.
Are very subjective, it all depends on who sees the poll at the time, for example, one advert tells me 8 out of 10 cats prefer wiskas and another advert tells me 8 out of 10 cats prefer felix, now surly both cant be right?
The full results of the polls yielded a 58% to 42% advantage for the Xbox 360. Overall, 38,416 people voted in this poll. It is shown that only 16,000 voters preferred the PS3 version compared to the other 22,416 votes preferring the Xbox 360 version. sounds pretty crappy when you have a 3:1 install base for the 360 in the us (aol polls reall yonly count for the us noone in the eu or japan uses aol)
xbox fans will prefer it on xbox ps3 fans will prefer it on ps3 its as simple as that.
Funny Article "Among this exclusive content is said to be “episodic” additions to the game which will come in the form of extra missions. Now this would be a huge attraction to the Xbox version since people are obviously going to want more bang for their buck with the $60 sticker price slapped on each copy of Grand Theft Auto." They clearly don't know that you will have to pay to download the content then
——whom does this "PEOPLE" here refering to? ——those who only have an xo? of course they will PREFER playing gta4 on xo. you wanna know why? cuz they dont fxxking have any PS3! i am so fed up with this kind of attitute this "news" has, like the writer is talking representing "PEOPLE". you are just you, and "people" never authorized you to talk for them.
These articles are starting to get a little old. They all have different titles but they all end up having the same garbage in them.
i think the difference will be in the online tbh. which is going to run smoother with no lag etc etc
is well over 11 mill I thought I read somewhere around here.Ps3 is only version to get.
I know if i bought GTA4 and played it all the way through...my 2 year old Xbox 360 start machine freezing...would not make it....My PS3 has been [email protected] 24/7 for over a year...with no issues...and I would not be affraid to play all the way through GTA4 or MGS4 on that machine.
Wait, wait, WAIT!!! People still use AOL? I declare shenanigans!
I think the biggest factor in all of this will be the 360s larger install base. I never thought about the controller issue that was mentioned, but the 30 controller does feel more comfortable to me. However, this won't matter much at all to someone who has spent the past playing GTA games on the PS2. The transition to PS3 will be seamless. But, people know what they want. I say, if you have both consoles, buy the version for the console that you have the most friends to play online with. But I know everyone has their own personal reasons.
I think this tit for tat crap is hilarious. Sit back and laugh, and be happy for R* getting all this free publicity from all these knowledge-less ass clowns. I will be enjoying my PS3 U.S. copy of the game.....I don't even want the temptation of having to pay more for this game in 6-12months for MS's "Exclusive" content...I'd much rather put the money towards R*'s TOTALLY NEW PS3 exclusive ip.....Or even a new max payne game......Hell, I'd rather them not waste time on dlc, and just start working on GTA5..... But I will be spending TOO much money on whole games like GT5, LBP, Motorstorm 2, Bioshock 2, Gears 2, Resistance 2, GOW3, Team Ico next project, The Getaway, 8 days, Jak & Daxter, Killzone 2, Left 4 Dead, etc, etc to bother with an OLD game (trust me, it will be old by the time the "exclusive" wanktent arrives). And rememeber people, there are still possibly 110 million + PS1 and PS2 owners laying in wait for their own reasons..... And then factor in TOTAL last gen console sales and that equals around the 180million mark (not including the fact that PS2 is still selling very well today)...Out of those 180+ mill, less than 50 million have crossed over to next gen machines (less considering MS uses shipped no.s, and also includes replacement R.R.O.D. machines in the no.s sold). Now add the fact that MS has had WELL OVER 1 YEAR head start over both rivals, then add the fact that Wii has already surpassed 360's total sales..Now add the fact that PS3 has sold as well as 360 did from launch, in the same time frame..........and with NOT ONE established heavy hitting ip. We all know once the GT's, Tekkens, Soul Calibres, GOW's, Buzzes, Singstars, and other casual baits for Sony arrive, that GTA4's sales will receive another massive boost....And even IF rumours turn out to be true and Tekken goes to 360..Most gamers would never get Tekken on a 360, as they know they will be up for the added expense of an arcade stick due to the fact that the 360 controller sucks ass for fighters and is only good for shooters and racers. Another reason I'm getting GTA4 for my PS3 over my 360...Control baby.
Just imagine if the Xbox 360 did not have GTA 4, what then. It a long way until GOW 2. I mean who cares if the xbox 360 get more GTA 4 sales. May will suck for xbox 360, we get Haze, June will suck for 360 we get MGS 4. July and August will be all multi. Soul Calibur 4( we get Darth Vader, Mercenaries, and Saint's Row. But, then September will really suck for Xbox 360 as they watch us play LBP, Killzone 2, and Socum. But unless they get Star Wars: TFU also. Than finally Xbox 360 will have GOW 2 and maybe Fable 2 which will be there last hooray. Cause next year they will be crush. God of War 2, Final Fantasy XIII, Twisted Metal, Uncharted 2. But hey at less xbox 360 will get DLC from GTA 4 , whoopee LOL.
PS3 GTA4 online multiplayer FREE 360 GTA4 online multiplayer NEED monthly fee $50 whereelse steam also provide free online....why microsoft?????
Money that is very well spent for a FAR superior online experience! I'll be playing online with my friends while you'll be stuck trying to find friends and then when you do, you won't be able to communicate with them because no one has Mics on the PS3!!! Don't get me wrong, I love my PS3 but the Live experience is head and shoulders above the PSN network.
For play on Live, not 50 monthly. Its actually more like a little over 7 bucks to play monthly. But I guess the point you're trying to make is that it isn't free.....
...so said a "poll" from one particular site.
and they forgot to put a "58%" in front of "People" cuz what the title says is just "people"
"People prefer playing GTA IV on 360." Funny considering the fact its not even out yet.
"The next explanation for this preference to GTA 4 on the 360 is simple mathematics. There have been 17.7 million more Xbox 360 units sold worldwide compared to the 9.5 million sold for Playstation 360. With over 8 million extra people owning an Xbox, it’s easy to see why the numbers are skewed in Microsoft’s favor." i wonder if they wrote this article 4 months ago...
Did it ever occur to them, that these people might already have a 360?
these people who say they prefer to play the x360 version; they should be asked what they'll play when next GTA only comes out for ps3 due to 360's lack of disc space.(see sam houser comments in latest interview on N4G)
Peoples inability to understand even simply numbers is almost laughable - as is this entire article! :) Given the install base differences between the 'rival' platforms, you would actually expect a far higher percentage to express a preference for the 36o version. The figures actually suggest theres an underlying preference for the PS3 version ... which would be worrying consideriny the 50 million payment MS shelled out to try and get the 'definitive' version.
What a lie. I saw the poll yesterday and 80% chose the PS3. Maybe the PS3 area and 360 area had their own polls and this one is from the 360 area.
360 has a bigger install base, so of course more people would say that, there are more 360 gamers...DUH!!!
360 GTA will probably sell more, but it isn't going to OWN PS3, you're almost trying too hard...MGS4 isn't going to be a sales flop...Kojima will never be satisfied...Live has more features than PSN had to throw that last one in there in case you thought i was a "fanboy"
Well, duh, AOL was a sh1tty closed service from the 90s, whoever uses AOL for more than the necessary (like AIM) is a moron, and therefore you can't make rational choices. By the way, I find it funny how the "360 controller" has become an argument in favor of any multiplatform game when the PS3 controller is the de facto standard for the industry. The controller argument is bullsh1t because the only thing best on the 360 controller are the triggers; the rest of it, like the lack of motion sensing, the face buttons, and the D-pad are not well suited for most games. At best, for the Xbox 360, it's personal preference. On some other cases, one controller may be better suited for one genre than the other. For example, Devil May Cry was highly regarded as better on PS3, not just because of the graphics, but because of the controller. Since GTA is a PlayStation franchise, I don't doubt it's better on it too. BTW, PS3 has sold 12 million, not 9.5 million. I love it how Xbox fanboys lack editorial ethics. Hell, when one can just easily check how much each has sold, you have to be a moron to think it might work.
are not scientific in any way. It's like asking a group of Democrats who they plan on voting for.
I don't understand why GTA 4 is being deemed the game to verify this stupid console war and who wins!? We all know GTA games haven't been that graphically impressive and the controls have been a little lacking to be fair. The only hook to GTA is the story and freedom that comes with it. Why base which console is better on a game that is so big, rockstar has to cut corners elsewhere such as graphics, controls, animation, etc. IF you feel the need to leave it up to one game to base this war off of, then please wait for a game that is designed for both the 360 and ps3 and not ported to one another. Rockstar has already stated that both games play and feel the same with minor visuals differentiating them. Yes 360 has DLC, which is cool, but don't put it past rockstar to want to turn a buck and release that same content on a disc for the PS3 later on down the road. Granted it may be much later, but I assure you it will come, Rockstar is a business and they don't care which console is favoured the most.
http://planetgrandtheftauto... "Interesting indeed, I myself - who is a big fan of the Xbox 360 - will be getting the PlayStation 3 version, as I've read and heard personally from people who have played the game already that this version is undoubtedly superior to the Xbox 360."
Oh My God!!! look at all those 360's getting ready to RROD.lol j/k Anyways yeah I guess the 360 is gonna win the GTAIV battle, but I'll be just as happy with my PS3 version.
What is the point of these polls? I own a PS3, and I'm getting it for PS3. My friend owns a 360 and is getting it for 360. I don't understand the problem here. More people want it for 360 because more people own a 360. Everyone who wanted GTAIV most likely already has the system they want to play it on. Trying to make owners of a console feel bad because the graphics are slightly better on one console or some sh*t serves no purpose other than to stroke your epeen.
These polls are useless. And dont even compare it to the political polls. It's a totally different thing. Simple fact is, both versions are gonna sell well. But then again, 360 version is already pirated. It's sad indeed.
