GTA V - Playstation 3 vs Xbox 360?

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Posted by HeSaveDave (15 posts) -

Hey guys, I am wondering what, if any, differences there will be for the different console versions of GTA V. What are the upsides and downsides of each version? I am wanting to possibly change my pre-order depending on this. I have both consoles I just can't decide which to get.

I'm guessing:
Controller preference.
XBOX Live multiplayer vs PSN.
Any performance differences?
Will PS3 be one disc while 360 is multi-disc?
etc other things I don't know about yet.

Thanks you, friends.

Chances are 360 version will get DLC first. Either way, free online for the PS3 makes it the better version for me.

XBOX Live multiplayer vs PSN. Exact same.


Any performance differences? GTA IV preformed worse on PS3 but all footage released of V thus far has been from the PS3 version, so that could be telling. Maybe they finally unlocked the powah of teh Cell.


Will PS3 be one disc while 360 is multi-disc? PS3; one disc, 8gig install required. 360 has two; one which you install 8gigs of data to your 360 with and never have to use again.


etc other things I don't know about yet.

Thanks you, friends.

Rockstar still refusing to show 360 gameplay for whatever reason.

I'd be worried if I was getting this game at launch.

360 version.

i doubt that gta 5 will be the first time a rockstar game  is better on the ps3.

Why? The 360 had far and away the best version of GTA IV before the PC version.

Getting it on PS3, got it pre-ordered from Game, think it's the special edition that gives me access to a few extras and the atomic blimp with a blueprint map.

Teh Cell on PS3 will allow super high res textures and unlimited draw distances in the game so get that one. 

#12 Posted by UCF_Knight (6863 posts) -
Thinking about the PS3 version for free online.. But I doubt I'll ever play online, I prefer the 360 controller, and my 360 has more gb available. So I'm still undecided.

Pc version > Either one of those.

Rockstar always seems to be buddy buddy with Sony consoles it seems. If that honestly makes a difference, I dunno.

Yay for that, but GTA5 will be the best thing since the history of everything, so if you own a console, just buy and play the damn thing.

Or you know, do both. 

Got a PS3 so I can get it on that and IF a PC version comes I'll just get it again

Getting it for 360 first. Ps3 down the line.
#26 Posted by faizan_faizan (7849 posts) -
X360.
#27 Posted by Shensolidus (931 posts) -

I'll grab a PS3 version. All the footage shown thus far is off the PS3 version and it looks incredible. I'd recommend people buying the version their friends play on because GTA Online looks like a blast.

As for exclusive first-get on DLC, nothing has been announced and I highly doubt it'll be that way for anyone. Rockstar hasn't done such a deal since GTA4, and I don't think they have any reason to start now. 

#28 Posted by GlitchOnMyLevel (96 posts) -

360 for sure.

#29 Posted by starwolf474 (552 posts) -
Rockstar said themselves that any visual or performance difference between the 360 and PS3 version is completely negligible, so that is a non-factor. The PS3 version will be on one disc while the 360 version will be on two discs, but you only need the first disc the first time to install the data onto the hard-drive and then never need to use it again, so that's not that big of a deal unless you don't have much free space on your 360 hard drive. I prefer the 360 controller over the PS3 controller especially for games that involve driving and shooting, which are of course big parts of GTA. GTA Online is going to be a huge part of GTA V, so I want to play it on the best online service, and Xbox Live is a better online service than PSN. So because of the controller and Xbox Live, I'm going to buy it on Xbox 360.

they need to prove people this time that PS3 version is not gimped like GTA IV AND RDR that's probably why they are showing the PS3 version :cool:

GTA3, Vice City, San Andreas are the reasons why!

rockstar said theyre identical.  i trust them

#38 Posted by xhawk27 (7229 posts) -

Since XBL is better than PSN for Online gaming, cross-game chat, every 360 has a headset, better overall. 

#39 Posted by Cheleman (7616 posts) -

I'll go with the leading platform this time, the PS3.

Rockstar not wanting to show the 360 version tells me the game ain't looking so pretty over there. They'll probably have to add a texture pack on a separate disk like EA did with the 360 version of BF3. Because of the hardware limitations and all that.

360: Timed-exclusive DLC

PS3: Free online

I'm going with PS3.

the PS3 version will be better because the Xbox 360 version can give you Diabeetus.

I'd take diabetes over herpes from the PS3 version.

PS3 version for me. Reasons being:

1) All footage shown has been off of the PS3 version. R* wouldn't showcase the inferior version of the game so I expect the PS3 version to either look/perform the same as or better than the Xbox 360 version.

2) I don't want to deal with multiple discs, even if one is just an install disc.

3) My PS3 is a Slim and my Xbox 360 is still the fat version. My PS3 Slim has a much less chance of failing than my Xbox 360 and I don't want to possibly deal with any RROD issues during my GTA V splooge-fest.

I got an equal number of friends on both systems so that doesn't sway me either way.

#47 Posted by lazerface216 (7494 posts) -

360 version.

i doubt that gta 5 will be the first time a rockstar game  is better on the ps3.

Riverwolf007

it's already happened, l.a. noire. max payne 3 is also indistinguishable between the two consoles. rockstar has obviously figured the ps3 out.
