Does this not strike anyone as a little odd? Rockstar didn't even produce RDR for PC and GTA4 was a terrible port. Since when did they care enough to not only launch a decent PC version but to do it with an expensive worldwide simultaneous release ?

This seems like making the best out of a bad situation, such as the game not being ready for American release, for example.

Not sure what's odd about it. The previous Max Payne games launched on the PC first before it was ported to Xbox/PS2. This is one of the reasons why they put a lot support into the PC version (DX11 support). I've been holding out for the PC version as well even though I own a 360/PS3.

I cant wait for Max Payne 3 either. But its an extremely odd thing for them to announce just 5 days before previous release.

When games go gold they take weeks to produce and ship, it's not something you change 6 days away unless there is a problem.

Yup I have done the same thing as you.Doing the same for ghost recon as well.

I really doubt it has anything to do with a problem, your only looking at 3 day delay. Games get shipped all the time with day one patches so that's nothing new if there is a problem they discover after its gone gold and ready to ship.

MP3 is probably a test run to see how well it runs for people and to see how well it sells.

So PC gamers please buy MP3 if you want to increase the chances of there being a GTA V pc version.

don't think there are any worries on gta v coming to pc or not.gta games have pretty much always been on pc.

If my 6970 and I-5 oc @ 5ghz can't handle it I'll personally go to rockstar and shoot their senior programmer.

Hopefully the CPU doesn't bottleneck you.

What the hell!? It was suppose to come out the 29th in NA!? Damn it may only be an extra 2 days but still. I got to play a short bit of the PS3 version and it was absolutely stunning!
