Yep, that's pretty much me as well. I'll end up getting a Wii before a PS3 - the reason? I have a three-year-old daughter. I can't justify the price for a PS3 when she needs things (well, maybe not needs, as evidenced by the 11 Barbies she currently has). So I think she would have a blast with Nintendo's machine and I just might get my wife into video games as well (instead of the current glazing over of her eyes at any mention of anything 360 related).

Hey, I should probably answer your question. I don't know man; it comes down to slightly more polish on the PS3 version or downloadable content that we know nothing about for the 360... That said, I'm going for 360 because that's what I have.

My little sister loves the Wii, it's a great console for kids.

Either way, it's not a bad choice.

Thanks for all the info. I'm still a little puzzled, but it has boiled down to two things really.

The achivements and the graphics. These achivements seem to be something fun to fight for, but at the same time I want the most powerful machine capable of doing the best graphics.

I'll probably end up getting the PS3. I don't like paying for the extra content either, or to play online. Have I understood it correctly that I need to sign up for Xbox Live in order to play it online?

Yes but it does come a free month of Xbox Live Gold when you buy the console. Not to forget that you will also get another free month packaged with GTA IV. So that's two free months of Live right there. Spend $20 for a 3-month card, and you'll have 5 months (almost half a year) at your disposal. The multiplayer will most likely be better on Xbox Live because the 360 console (Pro and Elite) will come with a headset and you're on a stronger network. PSN is free yes, but you sacrifice a better online store and in my opinion, a better service overall.

Achievements are good fun and there is the DLC but you will again have to pay.

PS3 version though will be better BY ITSELF but as far as how GameSpy's servers handle all the action, there could be a big difference with the online aspect of the game.

If online isn't that huge of a deal to you and it doesn't solely decide your direction of purchase, I'd go with PS3. Just make sure you have a bluetooth headset ready.

This used to be my excuse... but the 360 and ps3 button layout is IDENTICAL. Not only that, the ps3 contollers are shit. I dropped the controller once and the cheap plastic cracked. i would say get the 360...

Yeah, I am biased. I've always played the game on PS, but it seems like it's seem to switch and buy the Xbox360 Elite. It's a bit cheaper as well.

We'll see. I have yet to make up my mind.

A sidenote: I'm curious as to how you're gonna get the Achivement that involves killing a Rockstar Developer in an online ranked match.
