Probably.  I'm still up in the air.  I'm just waiting to see if there's any word on fuckups with the PS3 version.  To be honest, multiplayer really shouldn't figure that heavily in my decision, since I hardly ever play console games with others.

Anyone else getting it for PS3?

Yes. ( I won the 360/ps3 argument by virtue of paying for the game.)

I have never played multiplayer console anything though, so I don't know when if ever I'll do that.

I'm thinking about getting the PS3 version, but am waiting to here if there are any major issues with it.  If anyone hears anything on that topic, do tell.

Same. I have both systems, I just prefer PS3. I'll wait to see if there's any game-stopping issues before purchasing.

Some digging has found:

I haven't seen anything yet.  Usually if there is a problem, even a small graphical issue, there's a ton of RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE everywhere.

I would normally get this on 360 as its supposed to have crisper graphics (Better AA method used on the 360), a slightly better framerate along with a controller that is better suited to shooters but I am picking it up on PS3 to play with NiX....well that and I can no longer play on Live.

So for those with the PS3 version my PSN ID is Phire

Some people think the L2/R2 Aim/Shoot is weird. Outside of that, I've heard no bad things from people who have already played the PS3 version.

Isn't that GTA-style? That's how it is with my 360 controller on the PC, anyway.

Like I said, the main thing that would have me worry about the PS3 version are the Gamespy servers.  But like you, I don't play a lot of console multiplayer so it wouldn't have been a huge deal to me if I hadn't got the 360 version.

Got the PS3 version.  ID is Rasixf13. 

It's fine so far.  Nothing wrong with L2/R2 for the shooting.

So, one article categorically promising no differences between the two versions.  The second claiming a clear graphical advantage to the 360 and that anyone with a choice should buy that version.

Thanks Internet!

I like it so far. It feels like a Western GTAIV with a lot of side content to do right from the start.  This is game where you could be constantly doing something other than progressing the main plot.  Feels a bit like a TES game in that regard.

Minor complaints:

-Horse controls are a bit wonky at the start. 
-There seem to be a few framerate issues.  OMG PS3.  It's not bad but enough that you can notice it a little bit.
-I'm having issues seeing things.  It's the wild west, so everything is brown. People wear brown and are sometimes hard to see in combat when they hide behind brown rocks.  I think I need a bigger TV.  I don't think my wife will buy this as a reason to get one.
-I'm red/green color blind. The waypoint line color is dark red. This is incredibly hard for me to see.  I wish companies would choose a bright color or one that isn't part of the most common form of color blindness.  A big purple line is less manly I guess.

Yah, I'm getting sick of it.  At least with SC2 it had a button I could click when Phry and I were basically the same color to me (yellow, light green).  But this? Dark red on gray and nothing I can do about it.   At least it's not that crucial, but I really can't see it a lot of the time.

Don't these guys have accessibility testing at all?

Given the number of color-blind nerds I know (something like 10% of the male population are color-blind) it is amazing to me that this doesn't come up just with the people *making* the game, let alone testers.

So far it's.. ok. But, I'm not far into it yet. I think I'm not in Sandbox mode, as I keep doing the main quests, which I hear is only half of the fun.

My advice: Do ALL of the Bonnie missions. They're pretty much tutorials, but they don't tell you that and you'll be left thinking "WTF?" if you stop after she tells you you can do missions for the Marshal.

Seriously though thanks for the impressions. I'd heard it described as Grand Theft Horse but only third-hand and while I do love the western setting GTA does nothing for me.

Free Roam turned into players practicing ganking players at spawn points. I've also noticed severe issues with models going missing in Free Roam.

Lots of network issues too, which is surprising. I couldn't get the Free Roam thing going at 7. Wasn't able to download my preorder outfit due to being unable to connect to their servers. On the bright side, got my Kill a Rockstar Dev achievement.

I really think it'll be GTA4 all over again. Stellar reviews, glasses come off and then the backlash.

That being said, I'll give it more time before I give an actual impression.

I enjoy the game, but in many ways Lead and Gold is a better western "video game".  Red Dead Redemption is more of an "experience" but the gameplay itself is as wonky as the GTA games always are.

I'm enjoying riding my horse as fast as possible along a winding trail and then ending up falling down a very large cliff.

So far it's interesting from a single-player exploration point of view, not really a huge fan of the combat (so far) but it's not awful.. just have to remember to look toward my target and hit the AIM trigger to auto-aim and it's a lot easier.

The Bonnie and Marshall quests are pretty well done (though the cut scenes are a bit long and many, hopefully those start getting shorter).

I *want* a Steam option, but I'd definitely wait a month or so until after it had been released before taking the plunge.

My advice: Do ALL of the Bonnie missions. They're pretty much tutorials, but they don't tell you that and you'll be left thinking "WTF?" if you stop after she tells you you can do missions for the Marshal.

Not to mention that the Bonnie missions give you an essential piece of equipment that cannot (I believe) be obtained elsewhere.
