GTA V PC and Wii U version "up for Consideration" says Rockstar

So far Rockstar Games has officially confirmed only two platforms (PS3 and Xbox 360) for their upcoming game GTA V. Today Rockstar Vice President, Dan Houser stated that GTA V launch on other platforms (PC and Wii U) is under consideration.

The story is too old to be commented.

up for consideration? so then a PC version wasn't planned at all then? I've been saying that it was starting to look like Red Dead Redemption situation all over again. i got a few people that said i didn't know what i was talking about and now that its been actually confirmed by Dan Houser himself? just wow c'mon R*

Rockstar already said they're only doing Xbox 360 and PS3 AT THE MOMENT, you can't expect them to say that they're doing a PC port. It wasn't planned because they wanted to do consoles first. They did say however they might do it in the future. Almost all of the titles they made were in PC also EXCEPT FOR RDR.

I hope R* does bring it to the PC cause a lot of GTA fans are on PC. I'm a console guy but it wouldn't be fair you get me? PC gamers couldn't experience the awesomeness of RDR so I hope R* doesn't do that again with GTA V

Lmao @ most of the PC gamers. R*'s probably heard all the sheight you guys been giving console gamers for having outdated hardware, and having inferior graphics. Lol, R* please take as long as you want to do the PC version, I'm sure console gamers won't mind it a bit.

I'll buy it on console first and then on PC when ever it gets released..I think it's good that R* has delayed the PC version since i want the game to run good on all PC gamers hardware

extra time didn't seem to help GTA IV or L.A. Noire. i mean Max Payne 3 was good but thats not an open world game though. so i question whether extra time would even matter. thats if the game comes to PC at all. well i guess i'll just buy the game on PS3. no point of talking about a version of a game that isn't even in development, like you say.

"extra time didn't seem to help GTA IV or L.A."

Those two games were ported by a different company and not done internally unlike max payne 3 which Rockstar said they did themselves along side the console versions, that is why it was a better game.

No doubt they will bring 5 to PC they just want to get the console versions out the door. And then hope for people to double dip when PC version comes (would be nuts not to as mods have helped sustain GTA 4 sales and made people who wouldn't have bought it again, get it).

This however is definitely a time when I am grateful I have all consoles, so that I don't have to wait.

Yeah I've been saying that as well.

PC gamers have no one to blame, but those that won't buy the game. R* isn't going to put focus on a platform that is going to give them a good return especially when the reason why they are losing the out on the return isn't because people don't want the game, but because people are pirating it. It's a total slap in the face to developers.

R* will get to the PC version eventually, but they are going to put their focus on the platforms that are responsible for their income first.

Only a matter of time before some idiot generalizes PC gamers as being a sea of pirates. As if there aren't pirate versions of every popular console game out there

Just chill out!

ALL GTA titles have had a PC release seeing how the series actually started on the PC!

(Go Google Grand Theft Auto and see the original Dos release then Windows Port then to console)

This GTA game is huge and just requires a lot of R* attention so the console versions will be done first along with DLC and as usual the PC version gets a port 8 months later!

GTAV makes too much money not to have a PC release. GTA is one of the few Multi-plats that sells very well on the PC! GTAIV Icenhancer mod and all the MP mods shot GTAIV PC sales through the roof!

............But then again if I the developer (Rockstar) can't make GTAV with better Graphics than some kid at home with a PC (Icenhancer mod) then yeh i the developer would be EMBARRASSED and not wanna be Up-staged AGAIN by some kid at home with a PC who can make the graphics better than the original Developer!

Rockstar already has a less than stellar reputation for optimization and bugs for their PC games. The fact that a PC version wasn't even planned is not exactly the news I was hoping for.

SilentNegotiator1346d ago

It really is sad that they wouldn't make GTA5 PC a given.

deletingthis346753341345d ago

I am sure they will release a PC version though. The bulk of Rockstar's games are released on console long before they port them to PC. It was the case for every GTA game and most Rockstar games available on PC, Max Payne 3 being a rare exception.

Who's the strange looking guy you keep having as an avatar tenton? I'm sure I've seen him on some wanted criminal list somewhere.

Hmmm...

Wii U Please. Nintendo owners want jack fools just like everyone else!

MRMagoo1231346d ago

No nintendo owners want to play mario and zelda

Deku-Johnny1346d ago

Most Nintendo owners want a good mixture between core and casual. A console where I can go from Pikmin to GTA V is a winner in my books.
