    The pc looks like it has the ps3 color pallet with a much better AA and res.

    Only thing I dont like about PC games with cars, and the like, GTA, Grid, etc. Is that unless you have a gamepad you have no control over acceleration and braking. I.e its either on or off.
    Was trying out GTA:SA on my PC and its really hard to control, either full steering left/right, and full accel and braking. Whereas console versions have much more control. (i always tend to get a drifting effect with gamepads on the PC too. :wtf:, just doesnt seem to be as accurate as consoles.)
    What are people gonna play this with?

    It will just be a convert. that screenie looks like the 360 version run at a higher rez, with a higher draw distance and AA applied.

    the ps3 version had a different contrast from the 360 version but it was nothing that the contrast and colour sliders couldnt solve

    all i see is that the ps3 and 360 version where near identical so either way its goin to be a good game, itll be based on the 360 version since it seems 360 is easiest to port to pc

    its just a high polished version with more AA and AF ect and a higher res

    i will be using the 360 usb pad anyway so its no biggie, that one thing i love about the 360 pad it has proper triggers instead of crappy R2+L2
