    I am going to get GTA 4 later this year because I have had all the old ones on PS2 and love them.

    But I dont know if I should get Xbox 360 or PS3, Xbox is cheaper and will have downloadable content but I dont like microsoft.

    Also if I got a 360 would it work ok with my mac? music, photos, downloadable videos from xbox live etc...

    I don't know how well PS3 works with Mac, but Connect360 works great for 360/Mac (Movies, Music, Pictures).

    It really depends on what games you want. For me, 360 has more of what I want. Essentially, best of both worlds. But MGS4 and FF13 are PS3 only, at least for the time being (and potentially forever). And if you want to buy into Blu-ray early, well... PS3 is the cheapest player around.

    I'm more interested in some of the new stuff coming out, like Mass Effect, Too Human, etc. And online play is still top on 360.

    I like the online features and library of 360, especially this year, and I've never had a problem with the hardware either. Being a fan of Halo, it was an easy choice for me.

    The 360 version will have downloadable episodes starting Spring 2008. That is the incentive to get the 360 one.

    Yup....that seems like the loical choice.

    Xbox 360 has the whole package, so if your a big fan, 360 is the place to be

    ? I still don't get this attitude. I dont like or dislike a company, that goes for Sony, Microsoft, Nike, Adidas, Apple, Benneton, Panasonic etc...

    Sure I may dislike products they make, and I may dislike a lot of corporate attitudes, but hell that's the price we pay for living in a capatalist society.

    Microsoft are no better or worse than the majority of the business world.

    I use Apple computers - great for me. Does it suddenly mean I can't touch anything by any other company. No...

    i'd also say 360 solely because the game is being released for both systems. it's been an observation of mine, that when games a made for PS3 and another system, the Development on PS3 suffers.

    PS3 games will start to become amazing when they are exclusive releases; but because of the nuances of the cell processor, when multi-platform releases come out, PS3 always suffers from poor frame rates.

    Not to say it will always be like this, but it will be for a while. Go Xbox 360 on this one.

    I can't say which one to get....we don't know what Sony will get from this so I'll hold up until I hear what rockstar has in store for the PS3

    Are we talking about just the game or the system and the game? If it is the system and the game, I'd say go PS3 then you can sell you PS2 (and some of the games you don't want) to help cover the cost of the PS3. Plus you'll be able to play all your PS2 games on the PS3.

    I am going to go for the 360 version. I don't have a PS3 and don't plan on getting one less something crazy happens. The 360 Does everything I want it to do. Many other great games are comming to 360 as well. As a whole, i think that the 360 will be better in the long run.

    the downloadable content is really tempting me to the 360

    i dont really play any off my old ps2 games and backwards compatibility isnt that good in the uk anyway so that doesnt bother me, but i do like the blue-ray

    it looks like Xbox 360 elite is the one

    Yep- and downloadable content. Also, as another poster said, the 360 has Xbox Live- which is awesome for other games you might play online.

    Then there's also Achievements.

    I had the same views until I dented Microsoft's profits by simply buying an Xbox 360 :D

    encore!


    my thoughts exactly! I dont get how some people can hate Microsoft completely and never want to buy any of their products, just because they had a poor experience with ONE of their many lines of products.
