They really won't be any different I'm sure. Just go with your console preference really. Graphics and all should be the same, except controls may be different.

A long time ago, before it was announced that GTAIV would be on the 360 at the same time.

The only reason GTAIV is on the 360 the same time as PS3 is because Microsoft made a deal with them around E3 of last year. It wouldn't make any sense for them to start the project on 360 hardware if they didn't think the 360 version would come out at the same time. In the interview they were talking about the engine and how they could use Cell and Blu-Ray to stream so many pieces of data simultaneously. And Rockstar has stated that they specialize on Sony hardware. Criterion has said the same thing, and they have come right out in saying that PS3 is the lead platform for Burnout 5.

Like Slim said, it might not even matter in the end. But porting from PS3 to 360 and vise-versa is no easy task. Just look how long it took to port Oblivion and get it to actually take advantage of PS3's hardware.

The reason it's on both consoles is because with how fierce console competition is, it would be a foolish decision to only release on one console. You'd lose money.

Not necessarily lose money. With a game as popular as GTA, people would be willing to spend several hundred dollars on a console just to play it, so you would still be making money, and in return helping another with sales. Previous GTA's sold many, many PS2's.

I wouldn't. I got my 360 because in my opinion it looks just as good and sometimes better than the PS3, and it wasn't just for GTA. It was for Halo 3, Mercenaries 2, GTA IV, Saints Row, Gears of War, etc. To me four hundred some-odd dollars for multiple games is worth it. $5-600 for one or two is not.

I will be getting it for the 360 for the simple fact that I own a 360 and not a PS3. Also, 360 version will have exclusive content, even though I think PS3 will have something similar. It will own on both consoles, nonetheless.
