The popular GTA V PC petition (started by user Mike Julliard) has crossed 150, 000 signatures. This is a clear sign for Rockstar Games that there are large number of GTA V fans that want to see the game released on PC.
That's funny, 150,000 is more than double how many reported copies they actually sold on PC.
Uh what? GTA IV sold very well on PC, despite being horribly optimized for the first two months of release. Not as well as on PS3 and 360. I'd be amazed if the PC version hasn't hit 2 million sales.
Oops, you're sort of right, I read it wrong, it was 700k.
Man pc gamers are hurting for this. Hope it comes to pc.. But as we have seen Rockstar is a success without pc i.e Red Dead. They sold over 5 million on each platform. I think pc will have a port just a late one.
And I'm guessing you're basing that off of the notoriously inaccurate VGChartz? Those are just retail sales. I'm sure it's sold like 2-3 times that number on Steam.
For every one person that bought it, 5 ripped it off... R* would rather let the console versions sell through their peak first, then they may consider putting it out on PC.
@fr0sty and u made that statics from you mom basement.
PC crybabies and there petitions
At least it works.
At least most of us know our homonyms :P
Trolls who can't tell the difference between their and there.
@Hellsvancancy At least PC folk have a Spine. Console folk just keep taking it up the hind. Infact when MS and Sony do something to screw themover most of the fanboys actually cheer over it rofl.
Without Pc's there wouldn't be any video games period. But you wouldn't know that would you . Respect the Pc and its community
without electricity there would be no PCs.. without mining activity there would be no electricity.. without underground processes which convert old plant materials into non-renewable energy sources, there would be nothing to mine.. and so on and so on. that's not a valid argument
You better respect your electric company! And those miners! And underground processors! @torchic lol.
Don't be such a selfish baby. You should be happy if our PC fellows gets Grand Theft Auto 5[hope you PC guys get it].
It worked for Dark souls, it's not our fault if you console gamers don't care when someone screws you over because you treat your console as a god.
Has Rockstar said that there won't be a PC release?
No, they just haven't confirmed it yet.
Then why even petition, I'm sure they want sales and will get them by releasing it on as many platforms as possible. As for games like RDR I have no doubt that that will get a PC release just before we see the sequel.
But yet it will only sell around 10k on PC.
Its like PC gamers think it wont happen. Every main GTA game is on PC. There's no way Rockstar are NOT going to release it on PC, just at a later date
This has been happening since GTA III when PC gamers were shocked that they weren't getting GTA but consoles were. Six months later, it was released for PC. Same thing pretty much for every GTA release since. On a side note, when GTA III released on Windows, it was also released for Xbox which at the time would've been a next-gen console. Won't be surprised if the same were to happen if next-gen consoles are released this year.
Well it makes me worried now because it's been delayed till September. Hopefull we get a simultaneous launch now.
i don't know why developers HATE PC platform so much, almost everytime it gets a treatment like this... Ubisoft, Rockstar and others (except Crytek) just cn't find out mentality of these developers...
Ubisoft are the worst, some the best ive seen last year has come from IO Interactive. That said ubisoft montreal did great job on far cry 3 pc but rest been quick shoddy ports no deadication. @Hellsvacancy PC crybabies and there petitions. Crybabies how old are you ? We not children we show our thoughts strong feelings sometimes threw petitions and fourums PC Gamers are renound at doing this getting message across how we get things done.
It's not so much as devs hating the PC platform as it is the suits that make the decisions and see more dollar signs with consoles.
You honestly don't know why? Maybe just maybe it isn't worth it to them. Look at dark souls, pc heads begged for the game and when they finally got it they completely blasted them for it" being horribly optimized for pc" as pc heads like to say. Never mind they had little interest in the pc market and little to no experience with working on them. GTA4 got blasted as well I believe, why even bother when you know the whines are going to come. and for the record I truly hope they do bring it to PC as the mods will give this game infinite replay I'm sure.
Sure kick PC to the curb when the game is being developed on what? A PC, oh yea that is right.
Actually it's being developed independently on both PS3 and 360, not PC. Link - http://www.examiner.com/art... PC is hardly ever the lead platform these days.
I don't think you understood what he said. He meant the devs use PCs to create the game not that the PC is the lead platform. Most devs don't have a clue about developing specifically for PC nowadays. This is why we get shoddy ports and also to save money when the publisher spends £50mil on marketing their console games.
They use console devkits to make games not PC's. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
