Dan and Sam Houser are the CEO's of Rockstar Games

PS3 will get some sort of downloadable stuff for GTA eventually, just not the two Mission Episodes that Microsoft paid for exclusive rights to

Acievements for PS3 are in Home (the free meeting place for all PSN users, released in the next few months) there are Walls of fame and stuff

I played all the GTA games and completed them on 100%, and yes I had no idea who Dan House was before I just read this.

Right now the only thing holding me from buying a PS3 is the fact that Xbox gets some downloadable content.

Furthermore, weren't there for one of the consoles the ability to play mods (like on PC) in games like Unreal Tournament? Was that PS3 or Xbox?

LOL. Dan Houser, my friend, is head of R* Games. He's the mastermind of GTA. Honestly krisilcoque, if you haven't bought a console yet, I'd suggest buying a PS3, and this is not based on GTA IV alone. Sony is purportedly applying in-game XMB ( a system which makes it easier to connect with your friends online, know when they're on etc. ) in the coming months, and the PS3 is also getting it's own take on achievements, called trophies. If you're deciding which console to buy based on GTA IV, I'd say it'd be the PS3 if DLC isn't a big enough factor for you.

EDIT: The 360 doesn't support mods. The PS3 does. There are already quite a few good mods for Unreal Tournament 3 on PS3.

if you personally want DLC, then go with the 360. I, on the other hand, don't really care about DLC, i just want to play the game. I have a PS3 because i had so many problems with 360. but that is just my experience and opinion.

I'm leaning towards the PS3 pretty much. Only the DLC that I'm unsure about. Some sources say that it's gonna be A LOT of new gameplay

Also, can PS3 and Xbox users play against eachother in multiplayer?

Don't listen to these idiots, they have no clue nor have they played any other console then the one they own. If there are more PS3 owners online they will suggest "get a PS3" same with 360 owners online.

Haha, what is your problem?

I only answered people who came up with good answers to my questions. I bet you didn't even read the thread.

I'm not gonna get the console that gets the most vote, you douchebag.

Well we got the Call of Duty 4 Variety Map Pack 21 days before PS3 users so I guess that counts. It might be possible that we get demos earlier too, but I'm not sure.

Well, I was in the same boat as you and went with the PS3. But I might have been a special case, as I based my decision on which console was a better multi-use platform rather than which console had the biggest game library.

Graphics wise the PS3 version is superior, and I have read several 360 users complaining about the pop-in, but this is only really important if you are a graphics whore. For me, I always hated the pop-in and framerate drops in previous GTA's, so the the PS3 version was just an axiomatic decision.

As far as the DLC, just watch out for people inventing facts. There's little that we really know, and a lot that we don't. Right now, we know that there will be two exclusive add-ons for the 360 featuring episodic content (worth around 10 hours each of gameplay). These two add-ons will be released in August and then late 2008 or early 2009, and almost certainly will have to be purchased.

When it comes to everything else about the DLC, it's all speculation. Jeronimo Barrera of Rock* has confirmed that there will be DLC for the PS3, but didn't offer up any further elaborations. No one knows yet if the exclusivity deal Rock* has with Microsoft will expire or not. Just keep these things in mind.

So finally, whatever decision you make, I'm sure you'll be impressed.
