    The best version is no doubt going to be for the PS3, after all the Grand Theft Auto series did start out as a "Play Station" only game. But I'd choose better graphics over frame rate. True, Grand Theft Auto is meant to be a blood gushing, head sniping, road raging third person, but it's goal is too have the most breath taking graphics to accompany those aspects. We can just see that with Vice City when it first came out.

    Better framerate and loadtimes with exclusive content on the 360 and the PS3 is going to be the best version? You make no sense Floydd. Even if PS3 does have slightly better graphics and thats what makes it "better" then you meet the requirements for the stereotypical "graphic whore" that PS3/360 players are called.

    Well it's only my opinion, people can disagree or agree. I know most people are going to bash me for my obsession with the slightest enhancement of graphics. Again I'm only stating my personal thoughts on the matter, and besides it's GTA IV I don't care how I play it, 360 or PS3.

    360 version will be better because of DLC, spec wise though ya PS3 version might run a bit smoother.

    Did you read?

    "Hello, as it stands the Xbox 360 version has the smoother framerate & far faster loading times (without any installing)"

    so you would rather play something that looks good but lags than something that looks ok and plays like a hot knife through butter?

    Just an fyi, all the trailers that they have been showing for GTA4 were on the 360 version.

    Thats exactly what confused me by what he said. I really can't understand how someone could prefer slightly better graphics over framerate.

    It's really not that difficult to understand, some people don't care too much for performance and tend to lean more towards high quality visuals. Thus some can easily forgive a game for having poor framerate but yet has amazing graphics (see Blue Dragon).

    Though personally, I'm more in the middle.. where I prefer great performance and high quality together, Devil May Cry 4 is a perfect example of that balance. However, I can also forgive a game with lower quality but very high performance, as long as it plays well.

    to sum up this thread so far: 360 ftw.

    why hasn't anyone mentioned the almighty whoring of ACHIEVEMENTS along with the not to shabby graphics, and better load times for the 360??

    ok, so the PS3 Looks great, but when your really into the game you really dont think twice about it, afterall we are chatting on a wii forum and lets face it, we have all dealt with less than great graphics before *cough... wii/ds*, did it change entertainment?

    bottom line: achievements, highly acceptional graphics, load times, GTA IV! need I say more? sorry sony fanboys..give this one up :yesnod:
