As others have correctly stated, it's purely been shown predominantly on PS3 based on the deal Sony did with Rockstar for a dedicated PS3 bundle + associated advertising.
Anyway, I was going to get 360 version as a swansong for that console, but have recently switched to PS3 version now in the sliver of a chance that any potential next-gen version might allow save data to be transferred over (I'm getting a PS4). It'd be even sweeter if they did that 'upgrade to next-gen version for £10' offer too, though I'd imagine that may just be limited to the upcoming launch titles like CoD, Fifa etc...
I was concerned about the DS3 controller too as I generally prefer the Xbox pad, but thankfully the PS+ sub gives access to 1-hour full game trials of lots of games which included GTA 4. Downloaded that last week and tried it out and was pleasantly surprised that it felt fine with the DS3 (though with additional ORB 'triggers') so I'm more comfortable now.
