GTA IV: If you buy it

if you own a 360 and ps3 and plan on buying this game you should read this article from a ps3 mag... I was kinda shocked a ps3 mag would say this

Ign.com Scored:
xbox 360- 10 Masterful
Ps3- 10 Masterful...

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.

Not true to an extent. M$ bought exclusive opening rights to DLC; Sony will get them later.

yeah maybe but it wont be for a long long time. Think about it, the eclusive content comes this fall and spring. They wont get it this year or next. Maybe 2-3 years down the line but by then the next installment will be near... So it isnt worth it.

ok take that back.. Read on several sites.. Microsoft bought the content to only be exclusive for the 360. They paid 50 million for it and ps3 wont have it. So Microsoft owns the rights to the content... so unless sony works something out with microsoft it wont happen

The developers confirmed it

Any idea on how much the extra content will be? I'm betting $20 a pop... if that's the case they can stick it up their ass and I'll buy the PS3 version.

nothing has been over 10 bucks so far. So I highly doubt it. Most content downloads range from 400-800 points never any higher.

Yeah but most stuff is pretty simple. They're talking 10+ hours of gameplay. Look at the Oblivion add on... that was $29.99.

remember the add on featured 3 different seperate downloads. They were released at different times and ranged from 400-800. Yeah it will probably be 10 dollars for each and equal to 20 bucks total but not 20 bucks for each download. Oblivion on its first download offered another few hours and wasnt more then 800ms point. Microsoft is playing the field, getting people to switch from ps3 to xbox 360 with exclusive deals, the money comes back to them in the long run

Yep agreed... except for the music on the radio stations, which pretty much sucks.

I'm really disappointed. While the game is beautiful and polished. It looks great and the mechanics are awesome... they just went overboard.

Now don't take this as a crying whining omg they said a dirty word kind of thing. All the other GTA's had language and sexuality and the like, but they used it with reason. GTA4 they just went overboard, it's like they put it in there just to be putting it in there. When someone says "fuck you, you fucking fuck!".. that's a little much... that doesn't even fit or sound right. I really don't mind profanity or vulgarity where it fits.... hell I use it myself when I'm pissed or when I tell a crude joke.... but putting it in just to be putting it in is stupid and annoying. Quite frankly I'm kind of embarrassed to play it around anyone. Maybe I've just matured a little more since GTA:SA... but I don't remember it being nearly as annoying and retarded as GTA4. Anyone else feel the same? I'm curious.

remember different characters and backgrounds, most of these guys are from mobs and niko is from Russia. I personally dont mind it, its an adult game and its what I expected from GTA. Thats why I love this game, its different. There is alot of cursing but its different backgrounds. SA had alot of gangsta lingo
