    ps3 PS3 GTA IV outselling 360 3:1 [in pre-orders]

    via Computer and Video Games


    Pre-orders for the PS3 version of Grand Theft Auto IV are outstripping the Xbox 360 version by 3:1 on the website of UK supermarket Asda.

    "Both titles have generated great interest on the Asda website, with strong pre-orders, and the PS3 version is selling three times that of 360, which is surprising and not in line with what we'd expect," said Asda's head of games to MCV.

    Over the past two weeks, Microsoft has been aggressively promoting its console as the best way to experience Grand Theft Auto IV, producing TV spots and newspaper adverts in addition to Rockstar's own marketing blitz.

    In contrast Sony has done very little. Even the GTA PS3 bundle seen all over the internet has yet to be officially confirmed.

    Yeah pre-orders, who cares really. After all, with all the exclusive stuff for the Xbox 360 version, the PS3 version will sell less.

    Right, whatever. You won't be saying that at launch though, will you?

    Give it a rest. No one gives a crap about which version sells more.

    Not really, its simply "news" to them. Do I care if someone was murdered in NYC yesterday? No, but its still in the newspaper.

    C&VG is ahrdly the worlds authority on games though is it? It may have been going for a million and one years, but it never was and never will be informative and unbiased, thought provoking in thier eyes is making fun of another console!
    Read Edge or GamesTM (some people like it better than Edge, and it is quite a sensible read), if you want a well written, informed piece of information on the gaming scene in general or which version of GTA IV is "better".

    Besides, the PS3 version is now more likely to sell more than the Xbox 360 version as the later has already been leaked for the thieving pirate scumbags to steal, looks like Rockstar will be pissed about that, big time!

    Not you. But the family and friends of the dead person will care.
    There's always someone who will care about the article. That's why it's posted there.

    Its normal because most people who own xbox360 will buy GTA pirate copy,not original.
    If ps3 was able to play copies too,then it wouldnt sell much originals too
    Remember,playstation name was maken by easy piracy and people loved that.
