Gameranx: "Gamers petition to see Grand Theft Auto 5 on the PC. "
... especially with the Steambox coming out (probably) next year. Not a doubt in my mind that this game is coming to PC.
why the disagrees?! :|
might as well put the game for the pc on pirate bay right now because we all know majority of the people that will have it will get it by stealing it. people need to accept certain things as they are namely gamers. the number one reason for the game not being announced for pc yet is because the devs see it as a lost cause because it wont be lucrative enough for them to bring it to pc. most people steal games for pc
@Dylila More people will be buying it used or renting it than pirating it... So tell me which does more damage? Gamestop can probably shift just 1 copy of GTA V about 3-6 times each month, each time not giving R* or Take Two a penny. ... I don't like pirates either since it does hurt future decisions game companies may make to develop a game for the PC, but you cannot tar everyone with the same brush.
I bet it will be later in the year as an upgraded version that will also launch with the 720/ps4 seeing as they are close in specs to high end pcs. But they wont say anything yet as it will take sales away from the ps3/360 versions.
this petition is the equivalent to signing a petition for the sun to come out the following day. stupid..
The game is coming to the PC as all other GTA's did ffs...
Good for them. I'm a PC gamer but I never enjoyed the series. However, I bet the game will come to PC anyway.
Oh it will come to PC someday, probably as POS port, but it will be on PC...
And those "POS" ports end up being the definitive version of the game every time.
When GTA4 came out and wasn't fully optimized it still ran better than the console versions. Especially the ps3 version, it had a treacle like framerate at the best of times.
@Rupert Pretty much. I think console players, of which I am still one as of this moment, just don't like to share. There's something about pc gaming that seems to really strike a nerve with a large amount of console players. This site is no exception. Also, I find it funny how the term "port" always seems to be used in a negative light. All of the GTA pc releases were ports, and they are the most fleshed out versions of the games. Oblivion was a ps3 port, and it was superior to the 360 release. Witcher 2 on 360 was a port, and it's one of the most technically impressive showings on console. GTA V will come to pc. It will look better, play better (outside of issues with certain setups, mind you) and it will allow for mod support. Such a crappy deal pc gamers will be getting there, right?
Yep, I agree with that. Even the sloppiest of ports are exceptional when you weigh up the pros and cons. Sure they might not be perfect in pc gaming terms, but they tend to still be the ultimate version at the end of the day.
BOO HOO! Rockstar haven't even said they aren't getting it!!!
Yeah, um, that's the whole point of the petition. People wouldn't be petitioning to get the game on pc if it was already announced for pc.
Why ask something that's already gonna come to PC? Pointless.
I would take the 155,000 signatures and ban those people from playing GTA5 just for being impatient, and then give every other PC owner a free copy.
Lol. Either that or; "155,000 thousand PC fans petition for a PC GTAV release so they can pirate it". Haha I kid. Don't go all serious commando on me:-)
The question is: how many of the 155k are going to pirate it? I'm sure rock star has taken this into consideration
piracy exist on consoles also, in other countries piracy on consoles is leading because games are too expensive. fail troll is fail.
Where did you get your facts? Kotaku? Creep
most of them. lolpc
Piracy is usually not that high on games that are well made. If it's a shitty port, people will pirate it. If it's a well made game worth owning, people will buy it. Source: PC Gamer white a shit ton of games.
@jjb1981 no, i've traveled to latin america a lot games cost way more over there, for example in mexico brand new games cost around $120 USD. people rather "chip" their consoles and buy pirated games, than buying new or even used original games. believe it or not, there is people actually making a living by selling pirated games in those poor countries.
All that extra cost is incurred by the retailers
it will be soon..after they port it from the console version lolz
Would be nice. I know it's going to happen eventually. I'm not about to waste my time signing a petition about it.
It will come to PC eventually. Hopefully the port will be decent this time.
I wish it was on pc, Sadly consoles are where the money is to be made
Tell that to Alan Wake and Dark Souls. Alan Wake sold like poop on 360, sold a ton on PC when ported. Dark Souls sold well everywhere, even on PC.
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh! 155k signatures from 154k people that will download the game through a torrent!
Pc has no games, no good games. Oh wait we have diablo! Blah terrible game. Half life I can play that on consoles.
Here's hoping it does get released eventually, everyone deserves to play this, specially PC gamers who have always supported Rockstar games, I don't even have a gaming PC but know of a lot of people that would recieve this with open arms.
All this talk about pirating gtav on pc is a bunch of crap. This game will have a huge multiplayer and be a big part of the game. Pirated copies of big name games are supposedly a pain in the ass when it comes to playing online. And if the game could actually get cracked it would still take a while and people who are hyped do not have that kind of patience.
Always free on PC, eh guys?
I'm not gonna sign that. This silent "maybe, maybe not" attitude Rockstar has with PC gaming is getting tiresome. If they really don't want to make a PC version, then don't. Just stop with the tease, tell us outright you don't like the PC and leave. Console gamers are talking with glee about GTAV at their forums right now while PC gamers are still on their knees begging. It would be strange if Rockstar actually "complied" to the petition and PC gamers, especially the petitioners, all rejoiced only to find out they got the F2P version. Ubisoft tried to give the PC Ghost Recon Online instead of Future Soldier. Some of you might say the industry must've learned of the backlash to that but that was just before F2P became popular (Ubisoft was kinda ahead of the time).
R*'s GTA V will make it's way to pc's... after it debuts on the PS3/360 first. Then after they've recouped from it's sale, they can continue optimizing and scaling the code for pc. I'm not sure it's going to be released on disc... so it'd be best to have a large hard drive at the ready. just in case.
