Both versions. I'm guessing it will take a day or two to get used to though.
But isn't it my goal to eventually figure out for myself which version seems the best to me and let the community know my honest comparison thoughts... pros/cons... and eventually which version I'm sticking with? Lots of folks out there with both consoles I'm sure would like to hear some honest thoughts on this matter. But it's funny with message boards - you're never allowed to have a bias or you're being a fanboy and the mods hit you over the head. I don't get that. If this was a gearhead auto forum and 2 new types of motor oil came out and after rigorous testing - I posted my thoughts on each, positives and negatives... and which one I prefer... would that be bad?
I wish I had my copy, but stupid work is interfering with my fun. I'll be curious about the "sluggishness" as this is the first I've heard of it. I am assuming after 15 minutes you get used to it. Crackdown was more sandbox on speed since you ran much much faster than you would in a "realistic" game.
As for the review, I believe he was just saying it would be welcome both places, but be prepared for the inevitable fanboy responses, since any PS3 pros will be meant with venom from 360 fanboys and any 360 pros will be met with venom from PS3 fanboys. Reverse is true for any cons on either platform. It's just typical and expected, but I think he was just stating the obvious so be prepared for it (and no need to sink to their level if you are presenting unbiased reviews).
