    I'm just hoping that's a joke.

    OMG! ive been waithing for this. Totally excited now!

    OK, enough with the kiddies versions, when's it coming out on the PC?

    I kid, I kid! :-D:whistling:

    Almost tempted to get a PS3 just for this. :oops:

    360 will have the exclusive extra chapter for DLC. Since Microsoft paid $50 million to get.

    Also the trailers are from the 360 build.The recent (yesterday) preview that game websites got to see was from the 360 build.

    So we havn't seen the ps3 build. With the extra space on disc i would assume it would be better, however some muliti platform games PS3 get a rubbish version e.g Orange box, F.E.A.R etc. Apprently the 360 and PS3 version are identical

    I'm looking forward to this too.

    I'm looking forward to this too. If I hadn't been playing these games since an early age, I would never have had the courage to become a crime lord - or indeed the courage to call myself a crime lord.

    Day 1

    This is the most anticpated game release for a long time....

    Cannot wait for this game to be released. Couldn't believe it got cancelled in the first place, tho i would rather buy a great delayed game than just an ok game released on time.

    ??? Why? its being released on the 360 too.

    Put me in the "can't wait" camp, this game is one of the few reasons I bought a 360 :w00t:

    I would n't buy a PS3 just for GTA when no-one has seen it running on PS3 yet.
    I'd wait until at least the press have seen it running on a PS3
    Could run better, could run worse.

    i think im gonna end up buyin or stealing a 360 because i will need to play this when it comes out

    anyone got a cheap ps3 to sell?

    The only problem I have with the 360 is the lack of keyboard/mouse support. Being a PC gamer, I just can't get used to using a joypad to control this (or for that matter any 1st/3rd person shooter) kind of game. That's why the PS3 is more tempting, but in truth I can't really justify the expense, so I'll just have to wait for the PC version.

    You can use a USB keyboard on the PS3 it just wont be configured for it I think

    I used to be the same, i used to play Half life 1,COD 1 ,MOHAA etc on the PC. I would try playing FPS on the original xbox and ps2 and it felt really stiff (the controls :p).Over time i got used to it and i now prefer the 360 controller over the PC controls.

    Really? Wow, I just can't see it happening. I've tried to get used to it using the original xbox (and my PSP) but just can't. It's embarrasing to play againts my nephew on his 360. He's used nothing but gamepads, so thinks I'm rubbish at computer games because he can run rings around me playing Halo 2!. :oops:

    You can use a mouse & keyboard on the 360, there is an adapter you can buy - my mate used to play R6 Vegas on the 360 with a mouse & keyboard.....

    I used to play FPS on the PS2 and i found that worse then using the original xbox controller.
    It takes time to get used to it.I played MOHAA on the PC, I then tried MOH on the xbox and thought this is terrible and arkward, but going back to play it nowadays on the 360 it feels much better,still pants game tho. I think there is like a 24 hour learning curve if you've hardly used a controller before. I always found the joypads you get for PC were pretty pants,

    Suppose you could try using the 360 controller on the PC to get some practise.

    Although i still have a quick go on Brother in arms on the PC, Im not as fast as i used to be on it.
