293w ago - Multiple comments and rumors are circulating around the Internet that involve people arguing about which console will have the better version of Grand Theft Auto IV.
Comments made by Adriaan on the Web site yesterday were blown way out of proportion. Both versions of the game offer an unparalleled experience. Both versions offer superior graphics. Both versions will have excellent online capabilities. After playing both versions for hours myself, I can attest to this.
The answer to the question of "Should I get the PS3 or Xbox 360 version?" can be easily answered by asking yourself this question: Which version will your friends be playing online... the people that you want to play the game with?

But Australian presale figures seem to be telling a different story, with major retailers contacted by GameSpot AU today saying that the PS3 version was currently in the lead.
A spokeswoman for EB Games Australia--the largest specialty games retailer in the country--told GameSpot AU that the PS3 version of GTAIV was just ahead of the 360 in terms of presales.

Last night, Sony Computer Entertainment Australia fired back at Microsoft's DLC incentive, finally confirming rumours that there is indeed a PlayStation 3 GTAIV bundle on the way for Australia. The pack comes with a 40GB PS3, one Sixaxis controller,...
293w ago - Below is a compliation of the 10 things we want to upon first loading up GTA IV. In no particular order, here goes:
Play Cops 'N Crooks Multiplayer
For the first time in the Grand Theft Auto series, we'll be able to hop on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network to compete against others in a number of activities. Do you feel like taking part in a race through the city, or perhaps you're up for a little group criminal activity? We're eager to see what options Rockstar has in store for us - it'll almost be as addictive as that World of Warcraft game, but with machine guns.
Be a Bad-ass Criminal
In the Grand Theft Auto universe, it feels good having the whole world against you. Like previous games, GTA IV will give you the option to become America's most wanted in a matter of minutes. Shoot down a police chopper, knock down a cop and steal his squad car. Just don't be surprised when they finally bring you down in epic fashion. You had it coming.
Steal Your Dream Car
In GTA IV, multiple automobiles and motorcycles will be yours for the taking. All you need to do is yank the driver from the vehicle and enjoy. It could be anything, from a luxurious sports car to the casual truck seen in this photo. It'd be even more fun if you could steal a car from a friend, only to get in a gun-toting...
