True..:), i just did not wanna get attacked by TNS that is why i added it as a tip. He got his eye on me ...:)

IT is the way it is.

OC_MurphysLaw5420d ago

Do you really think Microsoft is going to let this game release without a specific ad campaign pointing out that the 360 is the only place to get the extra content? Do you not think every video game store known to man also does not know this and will be pointing it out as well?

Word will get out that you can be sure of.

wth?? Halo 3 and GTA IV same week??


im sure they are not....

aplolgies im im wrong but i could swear there is a few weeks gap

MJY2K5420d ago

This is a quote (note these are not my opinions, it's what has been writen, so don't get angry at me because I'm just passing on the news) from a magazine about the exclusive content:

"Microsoft reveals that the Xbox 360 will be getting exclusive downloadable episodic content - however, it turns out that the PlayStation 3 will get the same stuff stuff and perhaps even more."

Lifendz5419d ago

It's not like it's 2 months behind. And the game isn't set to come out till October right? There's 2 whole months for them to get the PS3 version up to speed.

And... SHlT will hit the fan if it gets delayed for the ps3, but then again if you buy it for 360, your playing it on a ticking time bomb :)

your comment made me lol. You know you will get attacked for that right ? :I

synce5420d ago

I'd rather play it on a time bomb than the PS3. And yes I own them both.

Machety5420d ago

@ Synce why would you rather a time consuming game on a time conscious machine like the Xbox360. You know the more you play it the more chances you have of it dying on you. And What The F(_)ck does I have both consoles mean. Does that mean you can make idiotic comments.

AngryTypingGuy5420d ago

Ahhhhhhhh, yes. People are very quick to generalize that all 360's are bad, when the fact is that it's far from the truth. My 360 works perfectly and runs at a rather cool temperature most of the time.

Don't forget that the only place to get the FULL GTA IV experience will be the Xbox 360! The extra content will appear nowhere else!

eLiNeS5420d ago

I would definitely play it on the Xbox 360 first and for most since there will be achievements to be had. Achievements make any game worth playing and from a good game you just get more out of it, more bang for your buck. Only someone with an Xbox 360 can attest.

You know what I will do, I will give you PS3 owners a small taste of what an achievement feels like:


clownfacemcgee5419d ago

That's called human psychology, and apparently it works. Just by recording some pointless number, you feel better. Just the act of observing something, changes the way you feel about that act.

So it was very very very smart of Microsoft to quantify your success with some numbers. You and some other people I know, will buy a game on the 360, just to be able to get a few more points. It makes you feel good. Microsoft made a smart move there, and unfortunately it means, you're getting scammed. Sony's trying yo do the same thing. Sony's "trophies" (such a rip off of achievements) are also attempting to suck you in, except without assigning a numerical value to it. (which I believe is instrumental to the achievements system) It's all a giant corporate scam for your money.

eLiNeS5419d ago (Edited 5419d ago )

I really don't care much for the points really, at least not until the next Xbox Rewards Challenge comes around. I also know there are the gamer score whores out there, I have a few of them on my friends list but I'm not one of them. I can tell you this though, I never got more out of a game then I have with the Xbox 360 thanks to achievements. I have played through campaigns more than once, I have tried things I would never had thought of and have tried harder at things that I would have given up within a game that really didn't matter a whole lot but when your friends see that you did something in a game that they have tried countless times to do, it gives you pride. It goes both ways, I can see what other friends have accomplished and it gets me to try to match them or even beat their accomplishments. It’s just a great way to see what you and your friends are playing, had played, what they completed, how far along they are in a game, the list goes on and on. The bottom line, it adds value to the game in more ways than none.

To give you an example of late, I noticed a few friends have Robotron: 2084 as I do and I really didn’t play it a whole lot but noticed they had a few more achievements then I did so I thought I would fire it up and see if I could match them. After a few hours and day or two coming back to it, I finally matched them. Now I am trying to get the next achievement to outdo them but can’t seem to get to wave 10. So it’s like a leader board in a way. nothing wrong with that, all games have leader boards, right?

If it stays in the oven for too long it gets burned.

Odion5420d ago

it may be a bomb but my game comes with 2 prizes, while yours comes with... ya...

lol I am sorry i couldn't resist flaming this! LET THE TROLLS RUN FREE

AnDy FrOm MiAmi5420d ago (Edited 5420d ago )

odion while my game comes with a console that is reliable and wont crap out on me. OWNED

Edit: sticky doja do you have any proof that gta4 will be delayed for the ps3 and how about if the article is talking about the demo and not the complete game. Enjoy playing this on your 3fixme! OWNED

Edit: Dlacy13g does it really justify that while you are plaing gta4 on your 360 that suddenly it craps out and you have to wait 3-5 days for them to send you the damn box for your 360 to be placed in like i did and then send it and wait anoter 3-5 days just to play the damn game again and then it craps out again and you have to reapeat the process. Does it really justify now?

sticky doja5420d ago (Edited 5420d ago )

360 will have extra content, and might come out sooner, I would consider your PS3 version PWNED!

Edit: I guess you didnt read the word "might." Or simply didn't understand its meaning. Maybe you will learn the meaning to that word in Jr High.

SmokeyMcBear5420d ago

woohooo a prize that will cost me half of what the original cost, for just a couple of side missions, woohooo

D_U_I5420d ago (Edited 5420d ago )

Then it bre************* error code wa??? 69... Damn it!!! S*it... Mam!!! i need the phone. 'Why' I need to call MS my 360's bust. 'WHAT, AGAIN' Yep.

It happens everyday in a home in the us. can we stop it. (preview guy voice) the movie that got a ban on The movie that made bill gates jump for joy. This fall get ready for the action, the light, the flashing, the NOISE


this movie is not yet rated.

OC_MurphysLaw5420d ago

You can shout about how the 360 breaks all you still isn't going to give you the extra content a 360 owner can play. And even if the 360 craps out...guess what...3 year warranty...done deal...fixed for free....not an issue my friend.

OC_MurphysLaw5420d ago

I am replying to your updated comment. I think you are assuming that everyone will run into the same bad luck you apparently did. While failure rate could be as high as 30% according to some sites...what does that mean? Does it mean that day one you open your box and boom...its toast? It means 3 out of 10 people could expect to see their 360 get red rings at some time ...its not a lock..its not a garauntee...its just a possible percentage. Most people, a vast majority of people are not having this issue.

So to answer your question....yes, yes it is worth it. There are great games on the 360 I want to play now and in the near future games that I can only get on the 360 such as GTAIV w/ the special content. My 360 is working I will play those games. If it should fail...I will send it in for warranty for free...get it back in a couple of weeks and begin playing again.

I think the other peice of this that should be addressed is the "End of the World" attitude people place on not having your console for a few weeks. While I get we are all avid gamers...not playing games for one or two weeks is not the end of the will survive it should you ever have to endure it. Get out...see what the sun feels like, breath in some fresh air...actually read a book! LOL...point is...the warranty makes repairs free so not being able to game for a few weeks is a fair trade given the great games coming out. And if you are able to I would suggest you get a PS3 and a 360...this way you get the best of all worlds in gaming on consoles ...and if your 360 can play your PS3 while you wait...and then get back to the 360 version of GTAIV,

SofaKingReetodded5420d ago

to make one of the most moronic comments yet....

it's doesn't come with the extra content you idiot, do you really think Msoft would shell out 50mil for it and then turn around and give it to you for free??

they charge for extra maps for christ's

GODDDDDDDDD XBOTS ARE DUMBER THAN A BOX OF ROCKS. no wonder they act like a console that breaks down is a good thing.

when you're done paying nearly $120 for one game PS3 fans will be enjoying two games for that price.
