    An X-Box 360 or PS3, trust me, the PC port of GTA4 sucks ass, not even a GTX280 can run it smoothly with no problems

    The GTAIV PC port is awful. Trust me, you could have the best PC in the world and you'd be disappointed.

    You've had to have posted at least 15 threads about you and gta 4 and this is almost an exact copy of an active thread in the Off-topic section. I'll configure a computer for you if it will end this onslaught of gta 4 threads. It would be cheapest if you bought a 360 and GTA IV. I'll post back in a few minutes.

    In terms of features, hardware and functionality.... Sure. But the 360 has the content.

    Another positive of having a PS3...

    Always getting the game when they release it on Xbox 360 and PS3 (Less people buy games for PS3, than on Xbox... so theres a better possibility of getting the game for PS3. It happened to me with Skate 2.)

    Also, there have been a LOT of good games recently on the PS3, and a lot coming.

    Another thing I love about the PS3: They LET YOU INSTALL LINUX!

    BIG PLUS!

    Too bad no windows or anything... RAM is pretty low on the PS3...
