Should I get the X360 or PC version?

#1 Posted by SmasheControllers (2543 posts) -

I did play this game when it first came out, but never finished it. My friend said he would sell me his X360 copy for $5, but Doesn't the PC version come with all the DLC?

Why wouldn't you buy the $5 360 one and buy the season pass?

The only DLC that you can't get on the 360 (yet?) is the Consul's Car. All of the other DLC costs $12 and has been on sale for as low as $8.

Is the season pass still up?

Yes. There's no indication that it's going away either.

@SmasheControllers: I think they kept it up, I remember seeing an option for it when I rented it two weeks ago on PS3

If money is tight go for the 360 one. If you're a spender then obviously the PC one will look better assuming they don't muck up the port.

@RsistncE: I just remember the GTA 4 port being offensively bad when it first came out..

Go with the 360 one if your getting it for five bucks. Also does anyone know if when you buy the game new, does the money just go to rockstar, or does the head of what once was team bondi get some money too?

It was, which is why I put the disclaimer in my suggestion haha.

Depends on the publishing contract. Typically contracts will continue to pay a percentage of sales loyalties to the creators of the content, but that can vary depending on what method of compensation was agreed upon between Rockstar and Team Bondi.

Try the PC version for me. I'm if anything a firm believer in PC gaming, but I honestly do not trust Rockstar. But this, especially since it is an outside dev(with all that that entailed come to light) still it might be a decent port. One thing I did notice was the graphics looked a bit muddy here and there. It would be worth it to clean that up with AA and or just higher res.

To be straighter about it, I would try PC if I did not already have the PS3 version.

@SmasheControllers:

It may be more expensive but if you have a PC that you think will run it well then I suggest getting it on PC, and yes the PC version will come with all the DLC
