Yeah, another case of the PC version getting released later (and probably through a bit of a half-assed port).

Well, that's just the way Rockstar does things. PC gaming is mostly an afterthought to them. They never even bothered to port RDR, basically stating they didn't know how, or couldn't be bothered to make it work.

I'll still get it release date mind, though GTA IV was a bit of a letdown. The Saints Row series is the new GTA TBH.

That's untrue, all they said is that it wouldn't be viable for them to do so.

Rockstar isn't bad at making ports - the PC version of SA is godlike, and while IV wasn't perfect, it's still entirely playable even on dated hardware. I can play IV with almost everything maxed out, but have to play BF3 with everything on low. The PC version of Max Payne 3 was done EXTREMELY well, so whatever kinks they had before, I believe they've been ironed out.

To be fair GTA started out on consoles, though I don't think that should stop them from porting it on the PC sooner....

ANYWAYS! I never beat San Andreas but I got pretty far, I kind of just wanted to do what everyone does: Disregard the story mode and just *bleep* shit up everywhere. I should plug in my PS2 and stuff and beat it, I think I got stuck towards the end of it. I got far in GTA 4 on my dad's Xbox account, but that game was meh all around and I never beat it. I just liked *bleep*ing shit up in the hospital. On my Xbox user account I'm right at the beginning lol.

Thank God this game won't be a downgrade like GTA 4 was, I need to look up more news for it.

They also added "(technically, developmentally and business-wise)". The first two just tell me they aren't confident they could do it properly, the third (business) tells me they think the PC market is just an afterthought, it's complete BS since I'm quite certain that RDR on PC would sell like mad. This (PC market being an afterthought for them) is also evidenced in that they delay PC releases for a while after console releases.

Charlie - What makes you think this game won't be a downgrade from VC/SA though (graphics aside, obviously)? IV was, and V is following in IV's footsteps so far as I can tell (putting more emphasis on realistic physics and the like). I'm sure it will still be a fun game, but I doubt they'll ever return to the awesomeness that was the pre-IV era. Have you played the Saints Row games? They take the VC/SA formula and ratchet it up another notch of insanity.

Shadow of Death: I just meant that it won't be a downgrade from IV lol, that would be terrible. Of course it won't be as great as VC/SA. But if you always expect all the GTA games to be just like or better than SA you're not going to have fun ever. IV was fun, but definitely not that great. It would be cool to have everything SA had though, but still.

Also I only played/own Saints Row 2 and it's fun. I really need to get Saints Row 3 soon, I've wanted it for awhile too.

It could be as good as VC/SA but it would be very hard for them to do.

It's been a long time since Rockstar has made a new GTA game that wasn't some sub-sequel. This should be good. Who's getting it?
POLL: Planning on getting GTA: V?

Awesome. It's about time we finally got something close to a release date. I can only imagine information is going to start pouring out around the middle of November.

Charlie - GTA actually started out on PC, so no, it isn't fair.

I think it would sell okay, but not like mad. Max Payne and GTA have a large PC base already, but RDR is a new and different title. I'd definitely have gotten the game, but you can't blame em if they didn't see the numbers being there.
