We received an incredible response from our Joystiq network-wide poll. With over 38k votes from Joystiq, PS3 Fanboy and Xbox 360 combined, we amassed a rather sizable sample size to study from. The conclusion? More people are picking up the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV
. However, considering the sizable difference between PS3 and Xbox 360 userbases, we were surprised to see the PS3 version perform so well.
If these results translate into real-world sales, it would be clear that Microsoft's $50 million check
to acquire exclusive DLC played little role in making the 360 version the de-facto version it may have hoped to become. With the potential for so much gameplay out-of-the-box, it seems that many gamers (42% of you, in fact) don't think DLC is too big of a selling point.
