GTA IV: PS3 Or 360? -Judge With Truthful Evidence

WhatIfGaming writes: "These past months leading to the release of the highly anticipated GTA IV have been full of controversy. Main topic: PS3 vs 360. Which one should I get it for? Preorders have been switched back and forth by gamers around the globe as new information regarding the subject has come forth. And again, new information this past week has caught all of our our eyes. From the the leaked gameplay videos to the sales statistics
down under.

The facts are here from all around the web, with a little bit of our own comments to add from our hands-on with the game. We will, however, reserve most of our comments to ourselves and let you decide. After all, that's what this is for."

"the PS3 version is in the lead."

well, thank you for remiding that.

As an Xbox 360 fan, I got owned LOL ahahaha

sammy_mantra3556d ago

Total PS3 domination starts with GTA4

BTW people MS's lies are starting up again

despite selling less than what they sold last year they are spitting BS again

MS sold 230k x360s in JAN 2008

they sold 298K last JAN 2007

MS sold 230k and 260k this FEB and MARCH in USA

They sold 270k and 290k last feb and mARCH 2007

In europe x360 sales are almost zero and MS claims to have sold 19 million units when in fact they couldnt even sell 17 m worldwide

@sammy_mantra - It's nice to know that a single person(fanboy) as yourself knows better than some companies on how much consoles MicroSoft has sold. That's makes me want to believe you. Your point about "they sold this much in Jan 07 and this much in Jan 08" makes no sense what so ever, in how they got 19 million total consoles sold.

Your a moron..

sammy_mantra3555d ago

SHIPMENT and SALES figures are not same

are not same

No one buys X360

How would MS reach 19 million when it hasnt even reached 17 million worldwide and 6 m in europe

MS is good at lying . everyone knows that

My saying of they sold this much and that MUCH makes sense---------CUS those sales numbers are released by NPD every month

and according to NPD MS sales have depleted

NOT to mention that X360 doesnt exist in europe anymore

MS will not ever reach 7 m in europe. MS has yet to reach 6 m there .

"PS3 games have a certain look to them. I like the way [the PS3] renders."

Sam Houser prefers the PS3 version

t-0_ot-3556d ago

Why does that mean he likes the PS3 VERSION(of the game) better? He points out something that he liked about the PS3.. big deal.

Hydrolex3556d ago (Edited 3556d ago )

There isn’t much contrast as there is more saturation, which does tend to wash out the colors a tiny bit, which is noticeable if you compare it to the PS3 that comes with a more vivid color palette and softer edges. The washed out colors somewhat help to mask the AA issues on the 360 though, so it seems to match up with the PS3 relatively.

So PS3 version has better COLORS and less jaggies !!!! OH give me a bubble

Herbert tholdpervert3556d ago

i have a question is GTA IV online region locked ?

xtreampro3556d ago

T_O ot just wants him to like the 360 version

gamesR4fun3556d ago (Edited 3556d ago )

Our Take: We’ll keep it simple as we’ve compared both the 360 and PS3 ones extensively during previews. The 360 one, contrary to the early previews and as of the latest preview stages, is a bit darker and has a few AA issues to this day. Overall a little more toned out so to say in terms of the color hue. There isn’t much contrast as there is more saturation, which does tend to wash out the colors a tiny bit, which is noticeable if you compare it to the PS3 that comes with a more vivid color palette and softer edges. The washed out colors somewhat help to mask the AA issues on the 360 though, so it seems to match up with the PS3 relatively. That is quite possibly the best explanation you guys will ever get. No bullshit here.

Hard to believe the my ps3 version may be even nicer than what Ive seen on the 360.

sammy_mantra3556d ago

I havent seen anything as realistic as THAT

dont know what PS3's potential is???

BUT it is huge

defeinitely with ROCKSTAR being good devs they have atleast found a way to use PARTIAL PS3's potential even without iRT and SONY's exclusive tools for FIRST PARTY games

i am a graphic whore. I just repent for the fact that had GTA4 been PS3 exclusive then it would have been as realistic as SIREN/UNCHARTED

chaosatom3333556d ago

Rockstar's ambition can only be achieved through ps3, nothing less.

sonarus3556d ago

Hmmm could it be that the ps3 version is truly superior? Could it be that Microsofts long ride at the top has finally come to an end, all this and more on April 29th.

I really don't care at this point i am going to pre order my copy tomorrow and unless i get some news swaying me the other way, its ps3 version for me.

I just love how Msoft took their time to write that letter on how GTA is better on 360 because of install times lol

NO_PUDding3556d ago

Everyone is so impressed by the graphics. But I ahvementioned that Warm Coffee achievemtn video like 50 times already. I tlooked awful, so I hope they're right about the saturation and more soft edge look of the PS3.

The Red and Yellow lights were just WAY too saturated, like paint on the ground.

Masta_fro3556d ago

they're implying the PS3 version is better. No doubt about it...hmmm, im getting the ps3 version. But then again, this is off course just a website preview, not the final score.

gamesR4fun3556d ago

O well if the gamers can hit me up with a bubble please. Just want my five back lol.

so if you disagree, you are a butthole because I didn't do anything. I just copied and pasted.

if you agree and bubble me, thank you !

Montrealien3556d ago

I just gave you a bubble because you are so cute stroking that little e-peen of yours. What is cuter is all your friends stroking all of your little e-peens together. With you.
