IGN gave it a 10. I have yet to see IGN give anything a 10 before. Is this a first?

"April 25, 2008 - Criminals are an ugly, cowardly lot more worthy of pity and disdain than admiration. This is what you'll learn playing through the single-player campaign in Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV. The series cheered (and criticized) for glorifying violence has taken an unexpected turn: it's gone legit. Oh sure, you'll still blow up cop cars, run down innocent civilians, bang hookers, assist drug dealers and lowlifes and do many, many other bad deeds, but at a cost to main character Niko Bellic's very soul. GTA IV gives us characters and a world with a level of depth previously unseen in gaming and elevates its story from a mere shoot-em-up to an Oscar-caliber drama. Every facet of Rockstar's new masterpiece is worthy of applause. Without question, Grand Theft Auto IV is the best game since Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time."

We'll see, but I expect this game to be tremendously great in terms of gameplay and narrative. Ocarina is one of my all-time favorite games. So when someone puts any game in the same light as that masterpiece, well, I'm getting pretty excited. Now I just need to free up more than an hour a day to play this thing.

Wow, a perfect rating havn't seen one of those in awhile

When was the last time a game was given 10/10 on IGN.com anyone remember at all?

Closest thing that come to my mind was Soul Calibur on Dremacast.....

I also ordered the PS3 regular version as well, since the PS3 sits in the living room with the 52". It's the main DVD/Blu-Ray player as well, so I will play it on that thing whenever I feel like playing in the living room. My 360 sits in my room and will get my private playing time with the game.

I went ahead and pre ordered SE for PS3, along with SE for XBOX360. I'm going to keep XBOX360 edition sealed and maybe sell it on Ebay.

Well, you can if you're under Linux on PS3 (it requires you to hack it). Otherwise it's not possible to use XBOX 360 controller on PS3 for gaming sessions (outside of Linux).
