GTA1 (Started on PC, mind you)
GTA:London
GTA2
GTA3
GTA:VC
GTA:SA
GTAIV
GTA:EFLC

I'm fairly certain we'll see a PC version without a petition.

This petition is redundant, they haven't said they won't be releasing it for the PC, this way the people who want the game will buy it for the 360 or PS3 at launch, then 6 months later when Rockstar inevitably release it for the PC, some of those people will buy it again, earning Rockstar more money!...
Can't be certain at all. It takes like twenty seconds to sign an online petition. Doesn't matter if it's redundant, it's a safety net

You make a good point, harbin91. Developers don't have to worry about all the the different types of hardware that exists in the PC world, or software/hardware upgrades that would render their games useless on the PS3 or XBox. I've only seen a handful of games break because of system updates on consoles, and they're usually fixed in a matter of hours.

Developers target console gaming because its the easiest to develop for. All PS3s have pretty much the same specs, like all 360s have, meaning there is less to take into account, unlike on the PC where nearly every PC is different. In the past though, GTAs on the PC have been somewhat badly ported. Ports on the PC have also generally followed the console versions.

Even though I generally disagree with this statement, it's the truth. Most game developers target console gaming because of how much cheaper it is for consumers, therefore more people use them. However, PC gaming definitely has a user base, I don't see Rockstar passing up making a ton of money like this. We'll be seeing a modded GTA V by the end of '13, I guarantee it.

I think the petition is funny, because Rockstar has only said that they're currently working on the console version, they've never straight up denied a future PC port and yet everyone is all riled up as if they DID deny a PC port. It's almost as if everyone has forgotten that every non-handheld GTA has come out on PC.
Exactly. A lot of GTA fans act like a group of kids, jumping to conclusions based on zero information.
They kept RDR console exclusive. And that was easily their last biggest game.

PC gaming is in a lot worse position than it was when IV was released. It's not insane that they want to be assured they get a version of the game.

They'll release it, but not at the same time as the Xbox or PS3 versions.

With the success of GTA IV on PC, they'd be stupid not to put V out for PC. However, PC should take some sort of importance and not be left to be talked about in a year or something ridiculous like that.

It worked for Dark Souls.
