Grand Theft Auto IV PS3 or Xbox 360 Preview

1 min read

Oh dear, now what?

1UP has given us a very small preview into the world of GTA IV and by in large it sounds fantastic, but not perfect.

Apparently the preview was done on the PS3 [unknown] version, which is not the norm, and there are some framerate issues when the action gets a little to hectic. They also mentioned disappearing cars and random objects popping in and out of the game… However it does sound like they may be just being a little over critical.

The game sounds epic, where everything is inter connected and the story is going to be different for every single one of us that plays it…

With it being released the week of the 3 public holidays it just feels like even our own government is endorsing us all taking the week off to revel in Liberty City..

I know my leave has already been approved… how about yours?

Grand Theft Auto IV PS3 Preview, Grand Theft Auto IV Playstation 3 Preview

[So it appears that this preview is on both sides of the site… you think they would mention that?

There is a mention of the 360 controller so does that mean we are looking at the 360 preview?]

    Who said it was the PS3 version, reading the preview it looks like it was the 360 version.

    “And, oh yes, the shooting. Pulling the left trigger halfway on the 360 controller lets you aim a weapon freely, while a full pull locks on to the closest enemy or nonplayable character in your camera’s view.”

    Look at the title of the article.

    “Grand Theft Auto IV PS3 Preview”.

    But I also noticed that 360 comment in there. Who knows.

    And why can’t they give us some videos NOW? I’m gagging for some gameplay vids of this game!

    If you go to the Xbox section, it says Xbox preview. They posted it in both sections, its common. LG I expect you to change the title of your post.

    This is what the writer of the preview says:

    “the one thing I’ll clarify is that my original preview text didn’t specify a controller/system — not sure why that got added in editing. we reviewed primarily on the 360, with spending some brief time with the PS3 version to compare. the rockstar guys told us they think that the PS3 looks slightly better, but it really was hard to tell.

    we were too busy having fun trying to run tanker trucks into gas stations”

    If you dock the avatar on the top right-hand side then it should be fine.

    “they think that the PS3 looks slightly better”
    Thats an indefinite answer! It’s statements like that that waste our time flaming over something thats not entirely true or false.

    I think it will come down to oppinion and not fact. I think both will look the same like COD4 or DMC3

    I also see there is a 5 min madatory install for the PS3 and a optional install for the 360. (still to be confirmed by Rockstar)

    firstly try posting somewhere that makes sense, get a room or go to MyADSL.

    Secondly Warhammer:Battle March is a 360 exclusive, as is Earth at War, Supreme Commander and Halo wars.
