    I hear that FFXIII will not be PS3 exclusive, so a PS3 can go and sodomoise itself. I've no reason for wasting money on it, going to buy a 360 next month I think. Sony have lost the two series (Final Fantasy & Grand Theft Auto) that made me buy a Playstation over the other consoles in the first place.

    (well, except the N64, I had that before I got a PS1 because the N64 was awesome :D)

    360's are about to get cheaper. They're coming out with a new series too, so I'd hold off on buying any next-gen console right now.

    In Europe the prices are staying the same, no price cuts here.

    They've been on a 65nm process for about 2 or quarters now, apparantly they're looking to go down to the 40nm process now. Everyone I know who has a 360 hasn't had the problem, maybe down to luck/placement of 360?

    They are? I thought that last new version only just had them digital connection crap and just that. Oh well.
    If this ones got 65... even i would get one... if it cost under 300euros :dragan:
    Or a Ps3... Whatever, if it was for under 300... :p

    I got a PS3 today and obviously made this my first buy. Loving both the system and the game so far.

    Yeah. Just bought a PS3 yesterday. Choose play between Call of Duty, MLB The Show and GTA4.

    In Australia, Game had a special, $500 for 360 + GTA IV! :-)

    I bought one!! Considering that pre-owned 360s are usually $400, and GTA IV $120, the two, except with a NEW xbox, for $500 is ridiculous! :) :skip_e:

    The story is excellent but I felt the missions got a little repetitive, more so than they did in previous GTA titles. That was my only little let down about this game because everything else was just amazing.

    The only real issue I had with the game (PS3) was that I thought the frame rate chugged a little bit, but I guess a game crammed with that much detail was never going to be running 60fps smooth... Everything else surpassed my (already unrealistic) expectations.

    Can't wait for the PC version (if they ever make one) to come out though! GTA IV was the first GTA game I had played through on a console but that targeting system helped somewhat with my poor aiming skills.

    The sad part is that if he's posting on an internet message board about how GTA4 online dating works, then he most certainly DOES have a problem with it in real life.

    I was totally intrigued by the internet dating aspect of GTA4, but I'm not going to post online all frantic about why I can't get responses. Wait it out chief.
