For gta iv. 360 was clearly better. Rdr looked less muddy on 360. La noire looked better on ps3 since the 360 had no vehicle reflections. Max payne 3 uses euphoria and looked nearly the same. Both versions will be great. Rockstar now knows both consoles extremely well at this point in their life cycles. Since i have a ps3 that's what im getting. I don't really play multi so live being the better service is non issue for me personally.
