The console versions (game, DLC, etc.) are released first, the user interface appears to be more console-oriented and console versions will probably have fewer multiplayer network glitches than the PC version, but according to Gearbox's CEO, the PC graphics are better (see quotes below).

I think most of the posters/players here are using the PC version - but if you're comfortable playing FPS games on the XBox, then that should be fine.

The biggest question is, will you be playing the game alone or with others? If alone, then get which ever version you're most comfortable playing. If you're planning to play the game with others (and most would probably advise you don't play it with random pubbers, at least from our experience), then just all get the game on the same platform.

I agree, the menu definately feels consolish but as for the gameplay... I can't fathom playing an FPS without a mouse.

We need you, Citizen!
