The latest issue of PSM Uk summed up a nice list of 50 reasons why you need GTA IV. The list basically consists of gameplay arguments, but when they reach the 43rd argument, they’re saying that the Playstation 3 version of the game will be much better than the Xbox 360 equivalent.
Since this is coming from a dedicated Playstation magazine the statements should be taken with a large grain of salt. We also have no idea where they’ve got their information from since there are only a few people on this planet that have had the pleasure of looking at/playing this game.
The PS3 hard drive and CPU should deliver a smoother GTA IV than on Xbox 360, not least because of texture streaming. Less loading, more detail and vibrant colour palette should make PS3 GTA IV stand head and shoulders above the Xbox 360 version. But what about the Xbox 360’s exclusive episodic content? Well, chances are, the PS3 will have similar downloads at some point in the future. If not, we should have PSP connectivity and multiplayer to look forward too. In your face, Microsoft!
There’s also an interesting quote about the downloadable content which is the Xbox 360’s strong suit, but not if it’s coming to the Playstation store as well after a while. Should the information above turn out to be true, it could be a major blow to the Xbox 360 selling streak.
