I really want to play gta4 but... - Page 2

post #11 of 49
Yep, like said above you're better off playing it on your PS3.

Your Dual Core and 4850 will not handle the game well enough to play it at a decent resolution or quality.

To answer your question, it WILL run better on your PS3.

But in my opinion (lol), sell your PS3 (Because they suck), or trade it, for a 360, and play GTAIV on that. I heard playing it on PC takes a really, really hardcore system.

I can play it no issues. BC you can't OC, I would vote PS3. It's much more enjoyable to use with a gamepad anyway. Although, I did play this game with my 360 controller, I'd still say PS3. Do it the way it was intended to be just like back in the day on the other GTA's.

I say PC because for one, mods galore, two, looks much better especially with AA My sig rig runs it fine at max settings with 4xAA @ 2048x1152. And whoever says this is a crappy port really needs to actually play the game..

Woah what a brilliant statement to make...

Why everyone oh yes all of you...lets all spend 100's of dollars and upgrade to an I7 just to play a single game...and why not spend in excess of 200$ on a GPU to play it as well oh yes lets do

The game is a crappy console port and thats that

Considering my CPU/HDD/GPU this game still skips and shows as low FPS as ever...not to mention it pales in comparison graphically to other titles that i can easily max out

I can admit the gameplay and storyline are both way to much fun and well thought out but the engine is broken and there is no reason whatsoever to upgrade for a single title like GTAIV

Yep, wouldn't bother with it for PC unless you got a nice quad + GPU (which doesn't need to be a 5870 BTW, game will work fine with a 1GB 4870).
I wouldn't sell your PS3 though, it's worth keepin' around for exclusives and (at the very least) being the benchmark blu-ray player

Not sure about logitech, but I know when using a 360 controller for GTA IV PC you can use it for driving and switch over to mouse/keyboard on the fly for shooting etc
