lol, this game is one of the most twisted games i have played. My friend brought over his ps2 and this game on sunday i had lots of funn. We entered in a code that gives the pedestrians weapons and another code that makes them riot, it was a real hoot watching them blow each other away. lol and then there is having sex with hookers and killing them after to get yer money back. I can understand why so many places want this game to be band. I did notice framerate drops on the ps2 when i was causing some hell, but i know the xbox version will run smoother then butter on popcorn, when it is finally released. I am definetly gonna get this game......GTA3!!!

I'll pass. I prefer exclusive XBOX titles (not ports).

I think its golden how some people are willing to miss a *must play* experience just because it did well on another system. Sometimes you have to settle for ports, Good game on one system, still a good game when ported.

Oh well, I guess people have there beliefs and preferences. Ive seen it all, From street fights over Mickey D's fries, Beer racists to port bashers.

honestly, I dont get you anti-port people....And i never will............

Ive heard rumors were getting an extra city. Miami.

Hugh Jass, you are going to miss out on a lot of great games for that odd attitude of no ports allowed. A great game is a great game on PS2, Xbox, PS1, or any other console. If it's a port or not does not change that. Oh well, I guess you only get to have 1 tenth of the fun with your Xbox, that's your gig.

To the other freaks waiting for this evil game, no way will this game not be better on Xbox than PS2. Some games are a little better on Xbox, some are a lot better, but I believe this one will be a lot better because PS2's version does not look nearly as good as almost all the Xbox titles do to me, and Xbox's should run smoother as well like most of the Xbox games do. The extracity will not hurt either.:D

I'm sure some of yall will call me prude and/or a wuss, but I'm not getting it based on content. For me, there's too much that goes over the line of what I find acceptable behavior. And for the argument "well, it's not like you're really doing it, it's just a game", why would I even want to pretend?

I'm sure I'm probably missing out on some nifty gameplay, but putting aside what I believe for the sake of a game would only show my lack of integrity, and I'm not willing to do that.

By no means am I judging any of you, but for me personally, I won't be playing.

I have never played GTA3, however, I might just buy it anyway. I mean, I have to atleast see what the hype is all about! Even if I didn't like it, it's not as if I would have a difficult time selling it!

Personally, I like shooters...and, while I understand some of the points that Batman just made, and agree to some extent, I still think that's what games are all about: Pretending you are someone or something you are not. I mean, seriously think about it for a moment...when I jump in my Rally car in Rallisport Challenge I am a professional Rally car racer! In real life, I drive a Honda!!! :eek: hehe

In Halo, I'm the Master Chief...the high end half man half machine bad ass that is the most powerful marine in the galaxy! In real life, I'm only subjected to a major stud :D hehe

But, enough about that....I want to get GTA3 only to see what the hype is all about and maybe in the process, I will like it. If not, I know I won't have a problem selling it.

I will have to admit this, though...the PoS2 version of this game has horrible graphics! I hope the XBox cleans this up...A LOT! I also understand that GTA4 is coming out soon, too...so, hopefully that version will atleast take more advantage of the XBox's power.

Until I see GTA III on the release calender for the XBox I'm not gonna get my hopes up. I am, however, looking forward to State Of Emergency which has been confirmed for the XBox.

03-20-2002, 02:50 PM
But of course.... buying the game for the XBox would be cheaper than buying a PS2...... DUH?

According to <A href="http://www.xboxaddict.com/archives.php?News_ID=1775">this</A> article, a representative from Rockstar has confirmed that GTAIII will be released for the Xbox.

Enough said.

If it is going to be like the PC version that is coming then it is definately not a PS2 port. The PC version is getting the option for multiplayer with up to 16 people. Updated graphics and textures as well. Something I see the Xbox can handle without any problems.

well ive heard this game is and isnt coming out.... Ive waited long enuff and ive heard that we are going to hear something about this game at the end of march...... if we dont... screw it!!!! i dont think it will come out if we dont hear anything about it by march....too many people are holding there breath for this game and it may not come out... but for now im waiting for a late march/early april announce ment.... If it doesnt happen .. im pretty sure its not gonna come out.... However if it does comeout with no announce ment i will stand happily corrected!!!!!!!!:D

LynxFX
03-20-2002, 05:57 PM
Calve, stop holding your breath. It has already been confirmed. Heck read this thread and the links provided along with *gasp* the front page to Xboxaddict.com

Take a look at the Take Two quarter earnings. They mention their lineup for this year including GTA3 for Xbox. There confirmed. End of story. Now it all comes down to what is actually in the game. Miami? Multiplayer? etc.

That's just it. I don't HAVE to settle for anything. I demand the best for my gaming dollar. If it's a port, then by its nature it will not utilize the power of the XBOX.

Besides, between Project Ego and ES3 I doubt I'll have time for less capable games like GTA3.

Tell you what, even though I own it on PS2, and have played it roughly about 85 or so hours by now, I WILL STILL BUY IT ON XBOX. Its that dope!!!!!!!!!

Dave
03-20-2002, 10:16 PM
Jimmie I do not blame you either. If Xbox's GTA3 looks anywhere near as bad as PS2's version does, it would be a crime. I am not sure if Xbox has a single game out that has graphics that bad available right now? Xbox is just way to much of a machine to have graphics that look like that. I would buy it if it did look junky like the PS2 game, but really there is no reason for Xbox's version not to look a hell of a lot better, and play a lot smoother as well.

I'm pretty sure Unreal Championship will have a mature rating...just as GTA3 does on the PS2, and probably will on the Xbox. Unreal Championship can be pretty gory you know. Blowing someone up with a rocket is much different than in blowing someone up in Halo. In Unreal Championship, an explosion will cause body pieces to fly, an explosion will also cause a lot of blood and gore to be spread out all over the place as well:-). How is this not a problem to you, but when killing someone in GTA3 with little blood compared to Unreal Championship...is?

This game sounds extremelly disturbing and morally corrupt. Having intercourse with a lady of the night and then murdering her? Perching the top of a building and sniping innocent pedestrians? Running rampage through the streets killing everyone in sight? What has society come to?




















where's my preorder damm!t! :D

In response to you I'll give you this response. This:

is a far cry from a game where everyone you shoot is trying to shoot you, too. UC is nothing more than graphically enhanced paintball, in my opinion.

Unreal championship = futuristic fiction world

GTA3 = Non-fiction crimes and realistic settings

Thats the difference.

Im tired of arguing with you about GTA3 Hugh_Jass! I keep trying to get you to understand that you shouldnt miss it. But you have this arrogant attitude that really pi55es me off. Missing this amazing game because it doesnt utilize the "POWA" of the xbox is just idiotic. Thats like not bangin a hot chick cause she gives bad head! *pats self in back for great analogy

Ya know what, Dont buy this game, You really dont deserve it. I hope you never play it and miss out on all its gaming bliss. Have fun playing all your exclusives, dont ever buy ports no matter how good this game is. Remain a Fanboy for the rest of your life. Stay ignorant!

Do you only eat mcdonalds if its super sized???? Do you only drive a car if it has leather? Do you only use right guard because anything else in uncivlized?

And if you do buy this game and enjoy it (which you wont because your mind is set on disliking it no matter what)
im gonna pi55 in your face for being such a tool. I know your a smart guy but stop being so ignorant!!!!!

This game kicks butt on PS2, even if they don't improve on it, it will still be "The game" to own on Xbox besides Halo.

Thats cool that you are like that, I don't think you are a wuss, in fact I think you are a stong individual that stands up for his morals! I personally don't have a problem with the game content but that is my opinion, if I had children I wouldn't own the game or let them play it. That is what makes America a great nation, the freedom of choice!

Thanks bryanhls.

In my opinion going with the crowd in any situation without questioning why makes you no better than a sheep. If after you question, and you still decide to follow the crowd, that's fine. But not to question.... stupid.

I just chose not to follow the crowd on this one.

There is room in this world for everyone's opinions and preferences. It doesn't revolve around you, JJaX. I honestly don't know why you are getting so worked up about this.

And the best part is that you don't have to do ANY of that. It is up to you. This game has a very Black & White feel.

Speaking of Black & White, anyone catch Futurama last Sunday and notice the connection between Bender floating through space and the Black & White game? Funny stuff.

I have played this game on my friends console. And It seems like it would get old. I had gta2 on my pc and u can only raise so much mayham before you realize that you could be playing halo. Anyhoo, i was just wondering for those who own the game, if it gets old.
