No doubt this will start a morning flame-fest. Today's topic of discussion and derision: The possibility that Grand Theft Auto 4 will be gimped out due to the technical limitations of the Xbox 360.
Rockstar games' 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?" He says: "Yep."
Got that, peeps?
"To be honest with you we haven't solved all those riddles yet." Houser continued. "Both [The PS3 and the 360] have their own particular pleasures and pains."
Since eagerly awaited Grand Theft Auto 4 is slated for release on both systems, does this mean everyone gets a gimped version of the game? Or will it mean that there are big differences between the versions on each system? Time, as they say, will tell.
