GTA IV for PS3 or Xbox? Hmmm…

If you’ haven’t already made your decsison and reserved your copy, you may want to check out Kotaku’s head-to-head comparison of GTA for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

The analysis is exacting, since even they admit that the difference are almost microscopic. But for you performance and graphics wonks it’s really helpful.

It also may make you PS3 owners feel a little better, since that article was posted almost side-by-side with another that skewers the SIXAXIS controller for GTA use. Looks like you’ll be turning the motion controlls off.

It figures, the advantage of installation on the PS3 is probably the only thing that makes it better than the 360 version, if they both ran entirely off the disc I think they’d be pretty similar.

Anyways, I’m glad I ordered it for the PS3, regardless of this comparison. I prefer it on the PS3 simply for the controller, it’s the controller I’m used to playing GTA on, and the one that it feels right on.

Playing the Trilogy box on the Xbox after playing it on the PS2 just wasn’t the same. The controller just didn’t feel right for the game, even though its a great controller. Funny thing.

360 – DLC and Community for MP

Most likely DLC on the PS3 as well.

I have my friends on the PS3, and the PS3 is bigger than the 360 in Norway, so thats all that I care about. The 360 community isn’t all that great either. People mostly hate eachother and threaten with killing mothers and raping grandmothers. :P

My friends list doesn’t contain anyone fitting that description. Which is why I refer to the sense of commumity and being able to be invited in game no matter what I am playing to play sessions.

The DLC episodes I am refering to above are exclusive to the 360.

But, If my friends all had it on the PS3, then I would probably do the PS3 thing.
