Grand Theft Auto IV is the top story on all accounts, even for Jack Thompson

GTA IV on PS3 vs. Xbox 360
For those fortunate enough to own both consoles, the question burning on many minds is which version to buy. Surely the hardcore fan already owns his or her copy of the game, but those waiting for a definitive answer on which version is superior likely won’t find the decision easy to make. Comparison videos show that both versions appear almost identical, while other hands on give slight edge to the PlayStation 3 version. Perhaps the best answer is to just buy whichever one your friends have so that you can play online with them.

GTA IV Xbox 360 DLC This Summer?
One big factor Microsoft was counting on was that gamers would choose an Xbox 360 over a PlayStation 3 because its platform’s version of GTA IV would come with the promise of exclusive DLC. That downloads may arrive sooner than expected. According to comments made by GTA’s infamous radio show host Lazlo, the Xbox 360 could see the DLC as soon as this summer, while also adding that the PS3 might receive something of its own too.

GTA IV Freezing on Some Consoles
While the majority of gamers who have picked up Grand Theft Auto IV are reporting nothing but an exceptional gaming experience, not all is perfect. Some are reporting the game is freezing during early cutscenes, where the game’s visuals will refuse to advance while the audio continues. Rockstar support acknowledged this problem, which apparently affects both PS3 and Xbox 360 version, but is more common on 60GB PS3 consoles. Rockstar has yet to officially address this issue.

Jack Thompson Owns Grand Theft Auto IV
It’s unknown if it’s in his possession solely for the purpose of spreading misinformation about the game, but he’s got his hands on a copy of GTA IV.

Duke Nukem Forever Seen by Outside Eyes
Even though it’s still the butt of many vapourware jokes, 3DRealms assures everyone that Duke Nuken Forever is still a real product in development. To help prove this, the developer invited Shacknews to view actual gameplay of DNF running on actual computer hardware, showing gameplay scenarios, mechanics, and environments. “We actually got to see...environmental puzzles and interactivity, a host of finished weapons, the existence of an in-game forklift, and plenty of heads and arms being blown off,” wrote Shacknews owner Steve “sCary” Gibson. “We both confidently agree that after seeing this demonstration, Duke Nukem Forever is looking great, and will easily stand apart from the crowd in both visual and gameplay styles.”

Converter Allows PS2 Guitars on PS3
The whole business of guitar incompatibility for Rock Band on PlayStation 3 is a difficult point for gamers. Thankfully, accessory maker The Ant Commandos has released a converter which will allow PS2 Guitar Hero guitars to work correctly on the PlayStation 3, be it on Guitar Hero III or Rock Band. The handy accessory retails for $19.99.

Mine is coming in today for my PS3. I can't wait to play it -- I haven't been this excited about a game in a while. All the hype had better measure up!

This is actually the only game I have ever been excited about. Not even Vice City or San Andreas made me excited, I just looked at them as another itteration.

GTA4 has taken gaming to another level. The size of the city is freaking HUGE, I got lost last night just cruising around and listening to the radio stations. I was driving around and testing the GPS system (Turn left, 100 meters turn right). The radio stations have new songs that are currently playing on the radio and hell even the "Talk-Radio" is classic. I would discuss but you have to experience it for yourself.

I love mowing down the people because they will try to escape and boy they can run fast. I pulled one lady out of her car, pushed her down and let her run (was showing the wife the graphics and gameplay). While running she began screaming "I'm about to get my box cutter" I lol'd when they fight back.

Surpringly the only weapon I have got was the knife, I tried to disarm a cop but they jumped me and killed me. The new police tracking system is cool also, based on how many criminal stars you have is what determines how difficult it is to escape. 1-2 stars you can simply hightail a few blocks and escape. 5-6 stars, you better be ready to start a war with those helicopters, they will hunt you down like a rat.

I have the PS3 version and the grame froze for 2 seconds during a cutscene and the audio continued. It fixed itself and kept going. I also love how there are 0 load times, you simply walk through the doors of stores, house, etc and it is already loaded. I really dont care for DLC as there seems to already be plenty to do in the city to stay busy. The cabaret is pretty fun to visit in the start since its free.

getting this for the PS3 very soon (mostly for my brother thought but should be fun), hopefully the loading times are less on the PS3 due to it been pre loaded onto the hard disk
