A petition has been launched at Change.org in the hopes of preventing Rockstar from ever releasing a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V. Why? "So PC gamers learn their lesson and stop stealing games."
What a joke, some people have too much free time on their hands.
Some people are MORONS. Simple as that. They don't mind receiving PC exclusives on their platform of choice, but get pissed if the PC receives some exclusives from their platform. Those people deserve a big kick in the @$$.
We live in a world, overflowing with hypocrites, Come_bom.
It has 25 signatures. With a goal of a mere 100. Let us not have a cow.
Doesn't hurt to point out the pointlessly stupid nature of it though. Trolling or not, it's dumb. There really should be a better submission process for petitions like these.
With the way the GTAIV port to PC turned out, I wouldn't be shocked if it were PC gamers themselves that started the petition. Seriously, it's that poorly optimized.
The PC version of gta iv is my favorite version. It had some launch issues, but rockstar sorted them out. Controls are fine, I actually prefer mouse and keyboard over controller in the game.
@withreday but we have mods which makes it that much better than console ver. but that isn't the topic here, someone has to have made a bet and is determined to win it, idk how else this stupidity would be justified.
@SilentNegotiator Agreed but still the fact someone would make this petition is pathetic
everytime a pc exclusive gets put on consoles there have been petitions to stop it and so this is no different. i have an epic pc that can handle the best graphic settings but i hate how elitest people act about superior graphical capabilities when it comes to pc versions of games. this is a response to that, simple.
PC gaming needs to keel over already. Console games is where it's at if the developers just develop for it exclusively.
If this petition's only reason is "So that PC Gamers learn their lesson and stop stealing games", then they can shove it up their A$$Holes right away. I'm sure Rockstar realizes that many of the PC games will be willing to pay for the game so that they can play it's Online Mode and the game has HUGE replay value (That's just obvious), especially with the Online Mode.
Amen to that, bruddah!
Agree. As if PC gamers will stop stealing games because of this. It's actually a game worth buying, after all.
Not all PC gamers steal. There are way more PC's in the world than any other gaming platform around. A pretty small percentage, compared with how many are out there actually steal games. There aren't a lot of demos on PC, so I will download a game I am interested in to see if I want to buy it. I am not rich and cannot afford everything. I have nearly 400 games that I have bought with hard earned money. If I don't like the game that I downloaded, I delete it. If I like it, I buy it and delete the downloaded copy. That said, who in their right mind would want a pirated version of GTAV? The online portion looks fascinating and I wouldn't want to miss out on that. Between Steam and Origin, I have around 150 games. On console, I have even more games. A SNES, Sega Genesis, N64, PS2, and an XBOX360. Not all people who download games are thieves. I have my 360 version already paid for and will buy the PC version when it comes out too. The mods alone are worth the second purchase, not to mention the graphics upgrade.
There is a ton of piracy on consoles too... usually in the top torrents are the 360 version. AND maybe pc gamer would buy their stupid game if they released good ports on the same day. GTA 4 on pc was trash and it was 6 month late...
" If I like it, I buy it and delete the downloaded copy. " ....said NOBODY EVER
Trust me the first version the get 'stolen' will be the Xbox 360 one. Piracy will always exist, it does not kill any industry it's just a fact of life.
I love the steam deals... no need to pirate IMO
@People Omg, no one is arguing that all PC gamers steal. Or that console gamers don't. I'm just saying that this won't stop those who do from doing it. http://www.readingbear.org/
It's not a matter of piracy behind what this (joke?) petition is about. He doesn't mean "steal" as in "torrent games you didn't pay for". He's talking from an "entitled" console fanboy that thinks that a port to PC period is "stealing" from the consoles, where he thinks the game should stay exclusive. There's a HUGE difference.
@darkpower Well, my comments still work within that context. Yay!
You really need to work on your syntax. I don't like the implication that I am a thief just because i am a member of "x" community, just as you would dislike it if I said you didn't deserve your opinion because YOU belong to community "y". Seriously, "As if PC gamers will stop stealing games because of this."? There is only one interpretation of that, it doesn't matter what you think it means.
What we have here is people getting active about the important issues of our day.
At first your comment made me cock an eyebrow. But then I saw that you have a Harvey Birdman avatar and I knew you knew what you were doing. And I nodded at your comment as if you could see me.
thanks for the laugh Harvey Birdman
This is wayy more important than Syria.
Well its midnight and I have some free time now so I might just sign it for a laugh!
That is stupid to say no offense. Really.. so they learn their lesson? Haha this has to be the most ridiculous thing that has happened. This was probably made by some teenage boys so I say games should only be for people who are 18+ period. The stupidity that has amassed this generation is shameful. If anything PC is the platform that pushes any advancements. People don't even game anymore they just condone other gamers/gaming platform in any possible way. I would love GTA5 to come to PC so I can test it out on my 7970. I feel retarded a bit just by this petition even existing bahaha. People really are that bored my goodness.
Calm it LOL, I would love for GTA to come to PC also!
@dalibor Change.org is a den of trolls anyway. One more funny post won't hurt anything.
How much more pathetic can you get? Not you, GamingFeud, just people that think this way. Fanboys are a plague on gaming. Fanboys are the only ones that care about making stuff exclusive. And the only reason they care is so they can rub it in the faces of other gamers.
