    Of course he'll say that, Microsoft bought the episodic content.

    I'll still buy the Ps3 version. :) if nothing else it'll save my ear drums having the PS3 turned on and the 360 off.

    Sony have always gunned for exclusives in the past, I have a feeling they are trying to get some good publicity by saying they will not buy exclusivity. This time I think Rockstar see the PS3 market is too small to break even, a nice move and Microsoft have probably given them a bit of 'help' in return for these 360 exclusives.

    He would say that as MS paid them millions. I dont think ill be buying it for my 360 as I have always played GTA on Playstation so this will be one of my first games on PS3 when I get the PS3. Maybe ill change my mind if I really get the urge to have it when it comes out then maybe it might be 360. I did buy GTA3 and Vice City on Xbox but never seemed to enjoy it as much as the original PS2 versions.

    They also know that Xbox live is alot better than Playstions varient, but then, live has had a few years to mature.
    Anyway, i will be buying it for my 360, and i hope its gonna be as good as the previous GTA's

    So...

    Now all the PS3 noobs shout: "He is paid to say that"
    And all x360 noobs yell: "See the x360 is way ubernoob then ps3"

    Put this on some kiddie invested console forum and all hell breaks loose.

    But this is bit-tech so i would say that my pc would own them both...

    :D

    Does episodic content we won't see till next year for what is, at it's core a complete game already really mean that much of a huge factor? How many of you will actually buy that content and how many of you are just co-signing just because it will be there?

    As nice as this looks I'll give it a shot when the inevitable Game of the Year release comes some time in 2008 with all the updates, that seems to be the theme these days, but then I've never played a GTA so don't know what I'd be missing so I can be patient. :D

    I think it'll better on the 360 because of the Achievement's... they can come up with some really cool stuff to do with a GTA game. Plus there is a that slight feeling/drive to complete the mini games when you seemly get something out of it.

    I've always found the GTA games much more fun on the PC. I'll probably get the 360 version so I don't have to wait though.

    The Darkness on PS3 shipped with Accomplishments (Sony's version of Achievements)...If 2k was smart enough to include it while it is not fully supported by the PSN I bet Rockstar will have them as well.

    Why the hell would it favour the Xbox 360? I'll get the PC/PS3 version instead, thank you. F**got. There's a whole lot of pretentious change of heart going on.
