GTA 4: Whaaaaaaat???

"As part of GTA IV's new physics, the player will be able to hear and feel the bass of vehicles passing by with their radio turned on."

How can you feel the bass when there is no rumble feature in the PS3 controller?

Plus, Sony has announced plans to release a new Sixaxis controller with rumble feature.

This will definetely bring back my respect for PS, I may blow $600 after my next pay check and get one (if I can find one)....

Well, maybe not this early, but they will have some killer games...

RE5
Guitar Hero 3
Rock Band
GTA 4
Metal Gear Solid 4

Sure they are on the other systems, but who knows.......... maybe 360 is the way to :)

Yo man....get the PS3. The people making GTA are already complaining about the 360. Blu-Ray is the way to go. :dsmoke:

Plus I heard that Circuit City will be dropping the price of the PS3 $100 on the 15th for some one week sale. Get the PS3 so I can have someone to slaugter on Motorstorm! ;)

Am I the only person in the world who doesn't give a damn about rumble features? I still remember when Starfox 64 first came out and brought the rumble pak as a pack in...I hated that thing!

That complaining was either hearsay or simple bitching because they were lazy and didn't want to have to work with any compression.

It has since been established that the PS3 and the 360 versions will be exactly the same but the 360 version will have exclusive downloadable episodic content so no advantage to Blu-ray here.

Hopefully the PS3 version wont require a 5 gig 30 minute "install" or anything :)

You are not alone. I do not play with the rumble on in my wireless xbox 360 controllers. I found that the batteries drained much more quickly with the vibrations on. More importantly, with long gaming sessions the rumble was causing carpal tunnel complications that I do not have since turning off the vibration.

Heard both PS3 (60g) and some 360's are having freezing issues like crazy. I guess Ill find out if mine is one of the troubled 60g versions here when I get off of work.

FYI: Rockstar is saying that its mainly the GS disks that are defective. You have been warned. :)

Well it sounds like you got a good version then. The game wont even get past the loading screen on most of the defective ones.

Looks like youre one of the lucky ones.

Just in advance to anyone who wants to try online multiplayer, its confusing as hell to figure out, and it seems really laggy today because so many people are on... but It is is still fun once you get it down!
