I want to play GTA V and GTA Online, but I don’t have a supported console yet. Now I wonder which console (hence which GTA V version) I should buy (assuming I’m not interested in any other games on these consoles).

What are the differences between the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 versions?

I’m not interested in minor graphical differences. Instead:

  • Any gameplay differences? Anything added/missing in one version?
  • Any game mechanics differences? E.g. does the save system work the same?
  • Any performance differences? Is one version running more smoothly?
  • Any online social differences? Ingame (voice) chat, friend lists etc.
  • Is the support the same? E.g. do both version get the same updates, at the same time?
  • And what about the current (and estimated) online player base? Does one version have potentially more online players?
  • I should be 99% the same in gameplay. – Raptor Oct 23 '13 at 3:50

Well, for the PlayStation 3 you won't have to install content onto the console because the PS3 uses Blu Ray. I'm an Xbox gamer, but you should probably go with the PS3.

    This answer doesn't really answer Unor's question. This is just a basic answer. It needs more details. – Scribblenautical Oct 13 '13 at 21:24

    You do have to install it on the PS3. This is a really bad, and uneducated assumption. Many PS3 games require installation. – Reinstate Monica Cellio Oct 14 '13 at 8:39
