Rockstar have announced that GTA is going to be released on XBox 360 before Playstation 3, in a reversal of trends over the previous generation. The game will be available on the 360 on the 16th of October 2007 in North America, and the 19th in Europe, and it has yet to be made clear when the PS3 titles will follow. Rockstar have also signed a contract promising to provide "episodic content" to XBox Live users, and have not limited themselves to the GTA franchise.

Yeah it's still there.

And yes, it will be infinitely better on PS3. Better graphics, no jagged framerates or anything.

I just posted this in the other topic.

From the Gamespot Article:

"UPDATE] At its pre-E3 press conference, Microsoft confirmed that the next Grand Theft Auto is coming to the Xbox 360 in October of next year. In an official announcement, Rockstar Games confirmed simultaneous launch on PS3."


As hhhercules_23 said,it's a simultaneous launch on both platforms.

hhhercules_23

info on gta 4. smile.gif
Passionate Homo Sapiens Ingester
That was pretty low by MS...

They didn't actually say it would be X-Box 360 exclusive,they said it would contain exclusive material for X-Box 360.They just worded it in a way that made it sound as if the game itself would be exclusive X-Box 360.
Flash6289
Yeah, I'm wondering if it was planned in this way, to get publicity on Rockstars part, and of course for 360 and PS3.... or maybe Gamespot even played a part in doing this..
Obviously there's gunna be some publicity, but this one had like scandal, and had the fanboys in shock, surely this kinda publicity is worth more.

If it was planned, it was a great one.
I could just imagine how many hotheads were sitting there at home swaering and getting angry about it laugh.gif
