well i got my 360 for free with my mobile phone contract, and i have pre-ordered gta IV special edition, but yeah i would of bought the console just to play IV, its the only reason i bought a ps2!

And what kind of a mobile do you have, if I may ask? Do you have to pay $/€50 a month?

It seems to me they don't give away 360s just like that...

Yeah, IV is the only reason I'd get a Playstation 3.

Yeah, since R* has confirmed that they will both be the same, I'm leaning towards getting a PS3 since after all, DLC will most likely come eventually to PS, i simply can't live without MGS4, and also I have a strong controller preference towards PS (especially when it comes to GTA). I've already thought about getting the PS2 adapter or the PS1, but the annoyance of being told to press a or y all the time is just too great for me to switch to 360 based on that.

But as I wrote in my first post on the first page, I still reserved a version of IV for both systems and I plan on choosing which console to buy when I look at the online comparisons. If they're the same, then I'm going with PS3. If it looks better (noticeably, which I doubt) on Xbox, then I"m buying 360 and then I'll be praying that MGS4 comes to 360 eventually.

But for now though, it's PS3 for me come fall.

Edit: Oh sh*t Hope! I didn't even catch that little bit of sarcasm. That's alright though, I just might be a 360 owner by years end. Don't know yet. But one thing I do know is that you 360 fans can't offer me is MGS4. If you could, I'd be a member of Xbox.com right now. tounge2.gif

quite simply, if I had enough money I would consider it, but for now I'll just have to wait and see if they release a PC version

I'm gonna buy Xbox 360 or PS3 just for GTA. It's the main reason I bought a PS2 (for SA). After IV, I might buy other games, but if there was no IV, I wouldn't buy any of the consoles.

I'm not really decided yet, but I think I choose 360. It has live updates and is cheaper. Why would I buy something more expensive with no/less updates?

I'm broke, but I'll buy it on debt, because I've already got college debt and it's growing everyday. I work part-time at local pizza restaurant, but it's not paying off all my debts.

So people shouldn't be like me if they want a console now. You should go with what games you want. For me, DLC status, MGS4's exclusiveness, and whether or not GTA will actually play better on one of the consoles -- all that will ultimately decide it for me.

But to answer the TS. Yes, I'm going "nex-gen" and buying a new console simply because of GTA. tounge.gif

Snap! The only other thing that is in my consideration in terms of which console to buy is the price. The 360 is WAY cheaper than the PS3, so depending on £££ I may well opt for the 360.

@NIKIN

I'm going to have the PC version as well, eventually. But quite frankly, I can't wait that long. Hell, it could be as long as a year. A f**King year!!! I know it might be like 6 months, but a f**kin year! lol.gif

The say patience is more precious than gold. You sir, must have a large amount of that yellow stuff in your "temperance bank".

But seriously, I hear you though -- money is tight.

I have already made the preorders. Love gta. Im trying to buy the PS1 GTA Versions.

why would you buy a regular edition and special edition,
isnt just buying a special edition the same as a regular edition AND has more stuff than the regular edition...
or does the regular edition have something the special edition doesnt have?

Umm. I don't think they're that great, but thanks.

But yeah, the price thing comes into play for me as well. And like I said, i got both versions of the game reserved just in case. I sure hope those rumors that PS3 will drop down to elite price pan out. It'd make sense since it'll be the holiday season and all.

Either way though, I'm probably looking at PS3 because I REALLY want MGS4 on the day of its release. However, if IV looks noticeably better on 360 (which R* has contradicted) and also if I learn that DLC will never come to PS3 (which Microsoft/R* hasn't disproven), then yeah, I'll go with 360.

Just have to wait and see though! smile.gif

Ok, maybe I exaggerated slightly but when you look at the number of really crap, locked topics that there constantly are in the IV forum these days, it's nice to see someone who is constantly writing fresh, interesting, well made topics.

I want MGS4 as well, but I could wait 6 months for that if it is going to come out for 360 in that type of timescale. But I will be buying IV the day, no sorry, the minute it comes out, so will have to have some type of console before then! I will go to somewhere at midnight to buy it! I did it with San Andreas so I will do it with this. I think I just thought of a new topic/poll...

If your gonna buy a console for one game buy a 360. I have had a 360 since christmas 2006 and its good, the graphics are great and it has so many features ( see spring update )

It's all you would need.

I thought this as well but look at the XBOX 360 failure rate, that has put me off a lot to be honest even if the XBOX 360 gets "exclusive" content. The XBOX 360 is cheaper and would be better to my budget (lack of job thank you for Ebay biggrin.gif lol) but the XBOX 360 isn't getting Metal Gear Solid 4 or Final Fantasy XIII enough said for me.

There was a poll for a question similar to this here.

But the question is only implicitly stated making it a bit vague, so I'll add a poll to this topic.
