Awesome stuff. Looks like this is a Microsoft exclusive ad considering it appears on the XBox.com website as well, they are serious about selling this game on their system.

I think alot of people still think, GTA is Playstation only, I'm hoping that these ads kick home about it being on the 360, and like you said, exclusive content, and if I know them it will be massive

lol, just signed up, did try AGES ago, but couldn't been using this great site ever since^^, but yeah awsome ad, and makes me want the game abit more although no matter how hard i try I just can't persoanlly get caught up with the hype, probably a good thing, I'll be surprised and wow'd even more when I play it, graphically though, its incredible given the scope of the game and all the minute details.

Yes it does, ppl who dont usually play games need to be aware that gaming has entered a new era, where it stand on its OWN besides music and movies.

But i seriously think this will sell more on 360 than on PS3, based on 3 factors..
1. More people Today own a 360, than a PS3.
2. The price of the top-of-the-line 360 is still much cheaper than the PS3, and the PS3 has no obvious advantages besides bluray.
3. When someone that doesnt have a console yet, goes into a store and plans to get GTA4, why in the world would they choose to pay so much more for a PS3 (without notably better graphics, framerate or features) when the 360 version of the game is utterly identical, has the obviously better online gaming service AND will get exclusive downloadable content?

People arent stupid enough to just think "oh, GTA, thats on PS3 right?".
They have eyes you know, when they walk into the store they WILL see that its on the 360 too, and then they will check the screenies and trailers, and play the 360 in the actual store. And see that there is NO difference between the two.
Then they will see the price of the PS3 compared to the 360.
Guess what they will pick.

Its very simple :)
A 360 + GTA4 + 1 year xblive gold + an extra controller or even another game too for roughly the same price as a PS3..
Or.
A PS3 + GTA4....

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (4 Hours ago)
