Hey guys,

I just want to buy GTA IV 'cause I love this game..
But I don't know which console should I buy..

So what do you prefer, PS3 or XBox 360 (I mean the Elite model) ?
Which one is better ?

I have a PS3, and I'm happy with that. I've never had a Xbox though, so I cannot really comment on that. I've always considered PS3 a step further ahead than the Xbox concerning Next gen and games in about 1½-2 years away from now. In 2 years I think the Ps3 will be fairly comfortably ahead of the Xbox.

I've only had good experience with my Ps3 - PES2008, GTAIV etc.
Game quality as for now is a different matter, but as for performance I have had no problems.

I got PS1 & 2 and I've never had a Xbox before too.
I don't like the Xbox pad too much.

Anyway, Thanks for the response, I think i'll go up for a Playstation tho smile.gif

PS3 are much more stable than XBox. Most of my friends XBox360s have given up on them when out of warranty. In my opinion the PS3 is a lot better console also because Blu Ray DVDs kick some serious arse.

Well I guess ps3 would be a cool choice...Although not so strong now, I'm sure it will lead as the best console in the future..

It is pretty much the same, according to my judgement - you won't be disappointed with the PS3 either. Not in the long run.

Well, the ironic thing is that that playstation could theoretically perform much more than xbox, better Graphic I mean, but the games are not yet programmed the way that they could take advantage of this....if you compare gta on both console you'll see that there is no different at all..some games look even worse on ps3
You should also consider that there is an advantage of xbox which cannot be discussed here...
big advantage of ps3 is the blu-ray player of course but if you don't care about blu-ray I'll say get the 360...there are also much more games available for it !!!
And fortunately you don't have do take care of "ring of death" and stuff...the new boxes have all a new motherboard and are better in quality

The new 360's don't break down so the 360 is a effectively a cheaper version of the PS3 with (in my opinion) better games, a better online community but no blu-ray player.

The graphics are identical by the way.

I've read somewhere that games development companies had started to pull away from the PS3 because it was too costly to develop.
The developing for PS3 costs too much, because of the Blu Ray system I guess..
But I still hope that in the near future we will have some great games on that console sad.gif

Yeah, the PS3 has a problem which concerns streaming the blu-ray data into buffer memory...it is pretty complicated...this issue is also the reason why some games cover many GB on the PS3 hard disc as a buffer
Personally, I am waiting for an external blu-ray drive for xbox and it would be perfect !!! Microsoft has considered this but at the moment there is not really something happening...

Well, I'm still confident that in 2 years time, the Ps3 will be superior tongue.gif

Yes probably, and when the next XBOX generation is released and developers learn to master it, it will become superior to the PS3 for several years until the PS4 is released and they learn how to push it to the limit.
And it will always be like that, I doubt either company will change their console release cycle.

True enough - you can always postpone your choice and find the better "equipment" the next day. Sometimes you just gotta do it though smile.gif
