QUOTE
The Xbox 360's lack of a guaranteed hard disk is creating limitations in Grand Theft Auto IV's development, Rockstar has acknowledged.

During an interview with our partners in crime at Official PlayStation Magazine, Rockstar's creative vice president Dan Houser was asked: "On PS3 you've got a guarantee that every machine is going to have a hard-drive and, with Blu-ray, you've got plenty of storage, whereas on Xbox 360 there's no guarantee of a hard-drive and you're working with the DVD format. Does that create limitations?" To which he replied, "Yep."

He continued, "To be honest with you we haven't solved all those riddles yet." The difficulties aren't limited to working on Microsoft's box, as Houser explains that "both have enormous challenges" and that "both have their own particular pleasures and pains".
Rockstar hasn't said anything about a target SKU between the two consoles, but they're currently demoing the game to press running on an Xbox 360 - so we wouldn't worry too much if you've only got Microsoft's console. Look for more on GTA IV in the next few weeks.

YES!!!1!1
I knew the PS3 was better. Just goes to show it. I heard this yesterday on G4 and again this morning on another forum board.


--------------------
I suppose the time for words are now.

Beakening the words for Silent Sound.

Stand here and wait, and see.

For the vision is gray with me.

Stand here, and see what I know.

Or been gone and go.


See what is seen.

Known to be keen.

There is rise to the ground.

The trailer ran on the 360, and obviously the PS3 is giving them issues too because it has a an inferior RAM structure.

M$ shouldn't have introduced the HDD-less 360 in the first place.

Damn cheap-asses who buy the core version! It's their fault!

@Lordrunners: This won battle still doesn't bring the PS3 any closer to winning the war. Not even the GTA IV one, since the 360 gets exclusive expansions and R* will find a way to get over this problem.

And what if it dosnt come out for the pc. It will be limited anyway on the 360 due to the disc space being 8. somthing.

Nobody said it will be limited. It's just that both the 360 and PS3 have certain shortcomings, and they'll just have to find a way to get over those.

The only thing sh*tty is your mood Vin tongue.gif

There will be no problems with the disc format. I mean, even Oblivion fitted on a DVD. Also, the map is a lot smaller than the San Andreas map, but still SA only was 4GB while on a DL-DVD there fits about 9...

Yeah but there is a problem, and it's the pagefile.
I hope they'll just put a sticker on it saying "Consoles with HDD only, if you're too cheap to buy a normal version, go screw yourself". Simpler for everyone. I mean, whoever has Core (did anyone even buy that? casuals I guess) should buy that HDD anyway.

I think the only people with a Core are people that bought it at launch and couldn't get a full one, people who really want(ed) a 360 but couldn't get the extra $100 at the moment, or people who just didn't know any better. Either way, I think all of those will get a HDD anyway after a while.

So I agree with you V... just make the game for the 360 WITH HDD!

I totally agree with you.
The topic title is misleading though, it doesn't LIMIT the game, it's just a bit difficult to fit it.
