    Why get a PS3 when its coming out on 360 with exclusive episodic content??

    Unless you haven't got a 360 either that is.

    There is some news on the net about the exclusive episodic content.

    This is from the Virginmedia website:-

    "Take-Two Interactive's second quarter financial report claims only the Xbox 360 will get episodic GTA IV content.
    At E3 2006, Microsoft's Peter Moore announced that GTA IV was to be released for Xbox 360 and would be followed with exclusive episodic content delivered over Xbox Live. Some months later a source close to Rockstar North revealed that the PlayStation 3 would also get episodic content, unique to the platform.
    A financial document released by Take-Two has now revealed that only the Xbox 360 version will receive episodic content - listed for release in 2008.
    This could be a mistake on the part of Take-Two, but might also be a major coo for Microsoft. The GTA series has been a mainstay of the PlayStation and the PS3 version missing out on content could drive hardened fans to the rival platform.
    The financial report also indicates that Rockstar's LA Noire is to be a PlayStation 3 exclusive.
    We've been trying to get hold of Rockstar for an official comment, but have so far had no luck - watch this space"

    If they have not got it wrong then Sony are in big trouble with the PS3. :shocked:

    You know how they are going to get that $50m back don't you........





    .....by putting sky high prices on the two exclusive DLC episodes probably around the same price as the Oblivian expansion or more per episode.

    Yes I guess this is a small expense for now and they will make a big profit out of it in the end. :(

    This game looks very good there is a lot of info in the trailer if you watch it over and over. :D

    So as other forums are doing it we can make a list.

    (Note from the trailer is hard to know if parts are just cut scenes)

    Hanging from vehicles
    Helicopter gunship
    bullet holes in windows
    incar view?
    Gas stations full with fuel
    kicking in doors of buildings
    Bridges with tolls

    anyone see anything else?

    Not all these where done by me.

    *When it zooms in to Niko's car on the bridge, in the beggining, you can read "Imponte" or something below the passenger-side dashboard and head rests of the Stallion.

    *The toll costs $5.

    *After the toll booth, it'll cut to a scene with Niko driving with the camera up near the left, front wheel. There you can see a man walking with a cigarette in a grayish puffy jacket. Like a sec later, you can see a woman standing in an ally, next to a fence, talking on her cell phone or picking her nose or something.

    *Later in the trailer you will see the 69th Street Diner. If you look close, you can see that it has a fully rendered interior. Meaning that you can probably go inside. This may be the spot where the scene where Niko is talking in the kitchen takes place. If not, it kinda shows that you will be able to go into a lot of interior environments.

    *Then there is a scene with a man at a hotdog cart.This might show that you'll be able to order something so you can get some of your health back. Since R* said that there would be no need to eat, I have a feeling it'll be like Vice City's system.

    *Then there is a scene where Niko kicks open a door. You can see how it breaks the door and little splinters fly everywhere. Also, you can see that they are entering the room of a person named "B. Crane".

    *Then there is a scene with the S.W.A.T running towards some police cars. They have "K.O.O.S.E"/"N.O.O.S.E" on the back of their uniforms.

    *Next and unfortunately, you will see a helecopter flying through the city. That's not the bad part. If you look closely at a buildings in the back, you'll see that one appears out of no where. I know that this is an early build, but I hope they atleast make the pop-ups small, not building size anyway.

    *Later is a scene where Niko is walking towards the camera. In the background, you can witness some guy getting beaten on the basketball court. Maybe R* will throw in many random occurences like this.

    *After the scenes where Niko is walking at the camera, he's shooting what looks like an AK-47 (sexy). But what is really nice is the attention to the shells. Not only do they glimmer, but theyspin and roll differently whey they eject from the chamber and theybounce on the ground. And I can't help but wonder why both cars Niko is standing in front of have their trunks open. Maybe that's where he got the rifle from.

    *After that scene, he's shooting at a red car. You'll notice that there are apparent bullet holes in it's side, the windows are down or broken, and the car is being pushed back because of the shooting. I also noticed the rims being shot. I guess it's gonna be a bit harder to pop the tires now.

    *Later, when Niko destroys his car, before he destroys it, you can witness the reflection of a tree that is moving on the gas pump.Now my main problem with this scene is the Sprunk ad.




    I deffinately like the way the door splinters when he kicks it down and the detail in the buildings and vehicles especially when shooting them and you hit the rim not the tyre and the car moves when u shot it. Also like the way the shells come out the gun.
