Trust me, there will be a PC version

All you people waiting for the PC version, man you've got a lot of patience I'll pick it up for PC when that version comes out as well, and if I ever buy a 360, yeah I'll get that version too.

There's shoulder buttons now you know, instead of the B/W buttons.

Since I will be getting a PS3 before October I will get it on that. I just feel like GTA's were meant to be played on the Playstation. Not that theres anything wrong with the 360, but if GTA IV has controls anything like SA did on Xbox, I feel sorry for you.

Yeah, but he could be referring to the "feel" of the controller. If he's more used to the feel of PlayStation controllers, it can seem very strange using a different controller. Personally, I think the 360 controller would hardly seem much different with GTA.

The difference would be in the triggers. Left Trigger is brake/reverse, Right Trigger is accelerate. That'd probably leave the left and right shoulder buttons for looking left and right, but they could be changing the controls up entirely for all we know.

Ugh really? It would take some getting used to for me to play comfortably with controls like that at least. Would be confusing for a PlayStation player to switch to that IMO. However, it seems like other games are starting to have driving controls where acceleration is triggered by shoulder buttons, so it couldn't be that bad.

Trigger buttons are better for driving IMO.


And I'll be getting it on whatever console I get. Right now, it seems like it's going to be the sexbox360,

They aren't bad at all, it's like that in Motorstorm (when I played the demo). Just it would just be hard to get used to after using X for acceleration in the majority of games in the past.

The X and Square buttons don't have the same precision the triggers do. Big reason why I switched to Forza.

As long as they don't use the black and white button to look left and right in cars. It was quite uncomfortable to do a drive-by.

They changed those into the left and right shoulder buttons. This was like one of the first known things about the 360.

I want to rep you a thousand times over.

But yeah, I feel the controls for GTA IV (on 360) will be much like they are with SA on 360, triggers to control car momentum, and the shoulder buttons for looking left and right.

Gotta agree with you there, it's definitely an advantage to have control over the speed of vehicles rather than holding it down harder. In GTHD they used the right analog stick to control acceleration, which also wasn't a bad idea.

I think the best option would be for Rockstar to include different controls presets so we could select whatever we feel comfortable with.
