Oh please, you guys look for every chance to say that, I swear.


The PS3 version won't have all the downloadable content that the 360 has.

You go ahead and criticize me and then you make your own statement..LOL

And I wasn't really talking about this war, I was just speaking of the convenience of not having stuff region locked and why it makes a PS3 a good product.

I didn't oppose it to the 360 or anything.

The smiley at the end of my statement denotes the sarcasm...

Yes, I for one will be waiting for the PC version, Usually you can get them patched for other territory's (Like how you can buy the EU version of Need For Speed Underground 2 and get the patch to enable to the US only cars)

The 360 has region free games too. Don't be so quick to single out.One more reason not to be a fan boy.

Please check facts before making a bs statement. Also just because there are region free game specifically right now doesn't mean they can't add it in the future. Plus with updates everything you know now can become region locked. Plus if you actually took the time to think about it for a second, it there wasnt going to be a region specific version, it would go against the AU government rating boards due to the fact that it would be the same version world wide which its not.

Rock star already announced that there will be a version for AU only so it would make sense that a region lock update would come out or has come out already and this is the first time they are making use of it

and seriously, piss off with the system wars everyone lol. any chance someone gets it comes up...one is not better than the other. they are different. leave it.

and d3daiM wasnt saying "one more reason to get a PS3" with the aim of baggin Xbox..you're reading it out of context. its a simple comment.. the PS3 being region free is one more reason to get one.

chill out ay guys, its the weekend...go get messed up.

I think that the peeps who are playing it early need to be kicked squarely-in-the-groin.
