GTA IV PC to enable cross platform PC-360 online play?

Maxconsole writes: "Rockstar games has updated the Official GTA IV website and it is now carrying a Games for Windows LIVE logo. This has sparked speculation that GTA may soon allow for cross platform play between PC and Xbox 360 and the PC may also be receiving the delayed 'exclusive' Xbox 360 GTA IV DLC..."

Ouch. I gave up on it for about a month but, at the urging of a close friend, I picked it up again. Story took off like a runaway train and I was left floored at how good the game got. I tried multiplayer once and just prefered COD4 but I don't think the game was crappy. Underwhelming...probably. Not worth the 10s? Certainly. But crappy...that's a stretch

mikeslemonade3786d ago

Microsoft would never allow that. UT3 should have been crossplatform but no.

PC UT3 gamers Vs Console UT3 gamers..

Well that's straight murder.

The GTA storyline was good until the 3rd island where it started to drag a little and the missions were becoming more or less identical to previous ones.

Swedish gaming mag Gamereactor said that there are MAJOR DIFFERENCES between the 2 version
Swedish Gamereactor mentioned in their 10/10 review that they were pretty surprised regarding the difference between the PS3 and 360-versions. The PS3-version features better colours, contrast, load times and what looks to be better resolution textures. The game also looks sharper and has a more stable fps.


"For those wanting to know which version looks better, the edge goes to the PS3. The textures and framerate are comparable, but the PS3 has far less pop-in. The 360 has richer colors, but the PS3 has better anti-aliasing making it look a little cleaner. Because GTA IV can preload onto the PS3 hard drive, the in-game loads are faster. Don't worry Xbox owners, the load times are rarely more than 30 seconds and don't occur very often. The slight visual edge goes to PS3, but the 360 is no slouch. Either version will do you proud".

X360 version has FR dips too . more frequent than the PS3 version
"Past GTA titles have had mild-to-serious framerate issues and technical glitches, because the games were trying to do far more than the PlayStation 2 could handle. While GTA IV is pushing the PS3 and 360 to the limit, it also runs amazingly well. Sure, there are framerate hitches here and there and (particularly on 360) there is some texture pop-in, but it actually runs better than I expected. That a game with great AI, an awesome physics engine and a detailed open world runs so well and with such short load times is a technical marvel. For that, I can forgive framerate issues and some noticeable aliasing. "

"PS3 version looks slightly more vibrant and sharp "


"Occasional pop-up".........ONLY IN X360 version of GTA4

So happy that i own a PS3

GAMESRADAR also confirms that PS3 version is SUPERIOR

"While the PS3 and 360 versions of the game are functionally identical, the PS3's visuals sport noticeably smoother edges, along with a warmer color palette that makes everything look slightly more realistic. If you're looking to compare Accomplishments with your Achievement-hoarding friends, though, forget it - GTA IV ignores these half-assed consolation prizes altogether. PS3 owners also have to put up with a nearly eight-minute installation the first time they start the game, which puts the normally slower Blu-ray load times on par with the Xbox 360 version. (That is, unless it's running on a 360 with no hard drive, which we're told will face much longer loads.)"

Others here u go

x360 version of GTA4 will cause your xbox 3 FIX me to permannently RROD

You can easily determine the best version from a series of Comparison videos


As seen in the video one version sports SLIGHTLY brighter and more saturated colours . Look at the water at the end. Look at the ROADS.

You could compare this video to IGN's comparison

http://www.onlineflvplayer.... http://media.rockstarwatch....


look at the DIFFERENCES in COLORS of the cars/ shadows/ roads. Notice that one features yellow stripes on the roads which appear as white stripes on the other version. Notice the shadows which appear dark orange on one version. Notice the car which appears slightly more greenish on the ps3 version. The yellowish green tint is VERY MUCH NOTICEABLE in one version only. see the comparison footages from 3:00 to the end to base your judgement


Clearly the video demonstrates the slight improved brightness and color depth in one of the versions

I think you might find it's the PC version that is more superior

Rhezin3786d ago

obviously you've moved on to play...uhhh....what again? C-YA WOULDN'T WANNA B-YA

PirateThom3786d ago

Other games, ones that aren't boring.

Where is that DLC, by the way?

Rhezin3786d ago

I find it hilarious, watch once MGS4 goes to 360 they'll think THAT game is crap too.

doshey3786d ago

really cuz i thought it was crappy when played it for an hour and learned it was boring and almost a step back in the series

boodybandit3786d ago (Edited 3786d ago )

I completed GTAIV on the 360 and I don't think it was a very good game. I wanted to stop 2/3rds of the way through but I do my best to always finish what I start. I have zero interest in playing GTAIV online. I tried it and hated it. I am slightly interested in the DLC if it ever comes out. Hopefully it will be worth the wait and not over priced. I am holding on to my copy until I know what the DLC consist of.
