Grand Theft Auto IV to rock videogames this Tuesday

Even though it’s not the holiday season, this week will have some of the biggest releases of 2008. On the high-def console side, you have Grand Theft Auto IV – which from early impressions is already in the running for game of the year. The requisite Mario Kart iteration for Wii is already on store shelves, each packed with the free-floating Wii Wheel accessory.

How does Blu ray tip the scales when the game was built for the 360 & ported to the PS3? It's the same game, just runs alittle smoother on the PS3 cause you have to install the PS3 version to the hdd to offset the slower drive speed of the Blu ray drive. Seems like alot of confusion among some gamers. How does Blu ray tip the scales again?

In Chess this is where you would say 'Check'.

I have read on a few sites that the PS3 allows for more items/characters/vehiles on screen at a time. The framerates a higher on the PS3. There was one site that noted a graphical difference, the PS3 has a luminesent look while the 360 has a glossy look. Neither are bad, claimed the site, but you can tell the difference.

I have no doubt GTA4 will be great, I also don't see a reason for people to compare 360vsPS3 as both will be great. I however will take advantage of the mandated install PS3 version. I know there is an option for the 360, but options usually cause problems, so I want to avoid the hastle.

I am picking the game up today after work. :) cant wait.

I agree, GTA is going to be great on both & many comparison reviews say unless you have games side by side, you won't be able to tell any signicant differences. I own both the PS3 & 360 so I have no favorites other than I bought the PS3 for exclusive games that take advantage of the cell & blu ray, & buy all multiplatform games on the 360 for the Xbox specific stuff like LIVE, community, achievements & stuff. I picked up the 360 version today but will gamefly the PS3 version to just to see the differences on my TV since I both the 360 connected via VGA & PS3 connected via HDMI on my HDTV, but no doubt GTA should be the biggest game this year. The best decidion Rockstar made was making the game available on both consoles & not limiting to one.
