I'm sure it was to also to get people to buy GTA 4 for 360 if they had both systems. I returned GTA 4 on PS3 to buy it on 360 once I found out about the DLC.

There is probably more to it that we don't know about. But I doubt that without exclusivity they would've made that much less money.

Plus it just pissed me off because I bought a PS3 a long time ago specifically because I thought Sony would have exclusivity like they did on PS2.

Also, GTA 3, Vice City, and San Adreas weren't exclusive to the PS2. They came out on Xbox, just not when they were released. I think they had III and Vice City in a double pack before San Andreas came out if I recall correctly. San Andreas came out at the same time for Xbox and PS2.

Yeah, I believe it is. I haven't seen much about it though.

Red Dead Redemption comes out in a month, can't wait. I loved the first Red Dead game, Red Dead Revolver.

I never beat Red Dead Revolver...I rented it once, thought it was pretty sweet but never got around to beating it. I'll probably rent the new one. I'm not a big ole west fan but, the game is bound to be a good one.

Technically, GTA3 and Vice City I believe were exclusives for PS2.

But then when 360 came out, Rockstar decided to put San Andreas out on both 360 and PS3, ending the exclusivity, and probably re-released 3 and VC for xbox.

So, before any next gen console was out, I'm almost positive that GTA3 and Vice City were only on PS2. I remember because I debated about getting 360 or PS3 when they came out, and one knock I had about getting 360 was no GTA. But then it came out that San Andreas would be on both.

San Andreas came out on the orginal xbox and ps2. PS2 first, xbox some time later. I remember because, I had to buy it for my ps2, which I didnt really want to do, because it was on its last legs. Came out in like October for ps2 and then May or June for Xbox. I wasnt going to wait that long, though.

Yea, I was mistaken on that part.

Point being, GTA3 and Vice City were PS2 exclusives before San Andreas came out.

No, the double pack came out Oct. 31, 2003. http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/adventu...to3/index.html

San Andreas was released 2004. It was released on Xbox in 2005.

At the very least GTA 3 was a PS2 exclusive. I remember that much.

Played some more Just Cause 2 last night. Still awesome.

Yea, I was mistaken.

Like I said, either way, 3 and VC were PS2 exclusives prior to San Andreas.

And I really feel like getting Just Cause 2. Maybe it's because GTA4 was a pretty huge disappointment and has left a gaping hole in my life.

I liked GTA4 but it was missing the mindless fun aspect of things. They went for gritty and more realistic, and they succeeded, but I liked some of the things that they decided to leave out. I remember in GTA 3 and VC when you get into a tank or an attack chopper with missiles for the first time and you're like "Oh HELL yes!" There are no moments like that in GTA4.

JC2 definitely isn't the storyteller that GTA4 is, but the mindless action factor is through the roof.

Exactly. I really don't play GTA to make up for my lack of crime in the real world. I play it to **** around, blow **** up, start police chases, etc. GTA4 was just really boring and the missions didn't seem like ridiculously unrealistic, which is part of the fun of previous GTAs. I had like no urge to start rampages in GTA4.

I still haven't finished GTA4. I played it for a while, then stopped after it got boring and repetitive. I started again last week, played one mission, remembered why I stopped, and haven't played since.

GTA4 is my favorite one. I think it's the only one I beat besides GTA2. I was close to beating San Andreas then put in some demo disc which was fubared and it deleted my save info. Just messing around bored the hell out of me.

I really liked GTA4, more than I thought I would. I actually think the games can get boring pretty but, I liked the way the took the story. I'm going to play again eventually.

As for the other ones, my buddy and I always used to play one and two, which actually had a lot to do with stealing cars in the game, hence the name. I never played 3 all the way through, watched my friend play it. And then I beat the others.

I haven't noticed any problems with the translation. I felt most of the characters weren't that great until Chapter 9 (which is the half-way point in the storyline - but not the game).

The first chunk of the game basically is a tutorial. You don't start gaining CP (XP) until after the first major fight in the game.

I rented FFXIII. Didn't get to chapter 9, as it wasn't that long of a rental. It is an OK game but not worth $60. I'll probably buy it when it gets down in the $30ish range.

Also, I beat the main story missions on Just Cause 2 already. Bummer. I thought there would be more. There are still plenty of mercenary missions to do so it's still fun, but there were seriously like 5 regular story missions. If I had it to do over again I would've waited on buying it.

For some reason I can't justify buying GOW3 either. I am a huge fan of that series but I've heard it's way too short. I think I'll wait until the new Clash of the Titans movie comes out, see that, then get it.

FFXIII is mostly just backstory and learning how to play the game until after Chapter 9. And I doubt this one will drop to the ~$30 range anytime soon.

GOW3 is actually pretty long for an action-adventure game. 10-11 hours.

i'm still playing because, as here, all indications are that the game gets much better later, but it's really hard to care about what's happening and not just button mash through the cutscenes so i can get back to sprinting past bad guys who i don't want to fight because the fights are, to this point, an exercise in hitting x three times in a row until everyone is dead. i've used one potion because the stupid tutorial forced me to.

bleh. i know it gets better. but i needed to vent my frustration.
Stay the course man. Trust me. :-)

I know it'll be months, but I don't mind waiting.

Heh, I didn't realize Clash of the Titans was already out. I might be buying GOW3 sooner than I think.

So I am replaying God of War collection and I had forgotten how hard it is to put the controller down.

Yep. And their graphics really aren't too bad on the PS3. It's easy to sit down and play for a bit and then realize oh crap its 4am.

on the plus side, this has shown me how ridiculously easy it is to replace the HDD, so maybe i'll stuff in a 1tb at some point (once i figure out how to hack a back-up plan).
So you didnt even get to play Heavy Rain?
