    I'd probably go for a PS3 if I had to pick between them. There's no subscription required for online gaming or accessing stuff like Netflix and the Blu-Ray player is a handy feature to have.

    I'm struggling to decide which platform to buy it on myself actually as I own both consoles. Has anyone seen any comparisons of the xbox vs PS3 versions?

I've pre-ordered special edition from Game (in-store) I'm just worried I'll get there and they'll say 'We have ran out of Special Edition's sir'. Can they say that? Or do they have to keep a Special Edition back for me? I hope the latter, anyone know for sure?
    I am quite sure Game have a que system going for pre orders so I think it depends on when you pre ordered and where you are in the que but I think they should have enough copies to go round.

    Thanks I think I will get a PS3 as I used to own an Xbox 360 and fancy a change the only trouble is finding people to play online with as I hardly know anyone who have a PS3.

    PS3 copy for me, but I'll be buying the PC version when it comes out for the multiplayer, and with any luck it'll get some post-launch love.

    GTA IV was fantastic online until it was struck with cheats and exploits, then most games ended in someone crashing the server

    Just pre-ordered mine now after talking to some friends about it last night. Probably won't get it on launch day due to Royal Mail being.. well, Royal Mail.

    360 all the way until they release the PC version :P

    How much are 360's these days? You can pick up a new PS3 Super Slim (12Gb) for about 140 now. Atleast that's what I paid a couple of weeks back. That said, I have a feeling the game is too big to install on a 12Gb drive, mmmm. Cash Convertors where doing second hand PS3's as low as 80 when I was looking (my old fat PS3 finally overheated). The super slim is very, very quiet - much improvement over previous models.

    I can't wait for GTAV to arrive. If it's anything as near amazing as GTAIV then my wife's set to become a gaming widow again.

    You know what neither could I. I rented from Blockbuster a few years back and didn't like it. I tried around last Christmas using the PS+ 1hr timelimited trial, and still couldn't warm to it. I think it was a mixture of god awful driving mechanics, main character I couldn't warm to, and the boring opening story.

    Giving this one a go more on the back of how good Red Dead was.

    I was thinking about the 12gb console but if I bought a PS3 I would like to make use of the PS+ so thinking that 12gb maybe too small. The other thing is that the xbox 360 seems to have a bigger player base than the PS3 but maybe it's just me. I really cannot decide what to do but have a few days to think about it as I don't get paid until Tuesday so can't do anything until then

    Most websites seem to suggest GTA 5 requires an 8Gb install so probably not wise going for the 12Gb PS3 if a single game is going to eat up nearly 3/4 of your HDD space!
