^ I had to bubble you down for that useless comment, sorry pal

very dumb to say that when you havn't even PLAYED Infamous... I'm a PS fan but you are a PS fan destroyer, meaning you make us look bad

mikeslemonade1008d ago (Edited 1008d ago )

I said "going". Work on your comprehension. Just common sense that a PS4 game will be better than a beefed-up current gen game.

And just trying to enlighten you PC gamers that by the time GTA5 comes out the console gamer will be playing better games.

Are_The_MaDNess1008d ago

There is no gens on PC.
And i know that my PC has twice the preformance of the PS4.
And do you know how much trickery there is in a console game nowadays? Aton.
GTA5 on PC will be great.
If its a 64bit games then we can push the texture res to 4k or even 8k.
While infamous will prob be running on 1 or 2k textures.

We can already see on the PS4 thats its dated in terms of AA, AF and SSAO and even realt time physx calculations.
Yes infamous will look good, im looking forward to it myself and it will play great.
But dont spew out crap you dont know about.
GTA5 on the PC will be the next big thing in a good while in terms of fidelity.

What makes you say that Rockstar dont have next gen assests on their hands already?
Most devs make huge textures in 4-8k res but they downscale it for preformance of the platform.
Will be nice to see what they have in store for us with a rig that can handle it.

FlyingFoxy1008d ago (Edited 1008d ago )

^ hilarious how badly some console gamers try to convince PC gamers that consoles are way better, i usually play fps games and i just hate playing those on a console ever since i got into PC gaming.

We have our own exclusives too you know, i had a PS3 and sold it because it was collecting dust, i still have a 360 and that is also collecting dust. I just prefer PC. Much more versatile than a console.

As for the games, the better multiplat games often get released on PC and for cheaper anyway. The few exlusives consoles get i don't really care for.. Halo is way overrated, played 1 and 3 and didn't think much of them.

As far as i'm concerned Valve make the very best fps games, SOF2 multiplayer in 2002 was better and way more fun than Halo 1 on Xbox, too bad Raven software haven't made a true sequel to it because it would kick ass.

GTA V will look better on PC because of the in game detail settings, does not matter much about the resolution because 1080p is the best for speed & quality.

mikeslemonade1008d ago (Edited 1008d ago )

GTA San Andreas for PC better than Infamous on PS3? I don't think so. Rockstar would have to make almost entirely new game. It's the software that makes the PC. Just because you have all that stuff in the hardware doesn't mean you have all the potential in the software.

You would have the argument if Rockstar made GTAV for the next-gen so they downscale it for PS3 and 360. Then the PC version would be so amazing that it would be one of the best games for several years. However that's not the case and the game will be obsolete soon when it comes out.

Are_The_MaDNess1008d ago

Agree with you dude.
Games like CSGO, Dota 2 is more than enough for most gamers to enjoy for years. Its hard to find games that have that kind of support from the devs with constant updates and newly added features and for free aswell.

And dont come and say csgo is on consoles aswell, it is. But its hardly the same game. Is more of a freakish twin that tries to mimic his brother.

Are_The_MaDNess1008d ago

Where do you get all your BS from? Really now.
I really shoulndt feed a troll like you anymore.
Going back to playing my games in 200fps with no jaggies here thanks.

Only way for you to understand is to see it for yourself with the glasses you sorely need.

Go over to a friend that have a real gaming PC GTX 580 or higher, and play BF3 on it, then look at the same game on your PS3.
Maybe then you will see the diffrence. But i highly dubth a "man" like will understand the diffrence in anycase.

mikeslemonade1008d ago

Playing GTA5. Why play a game like BF3 when I'm not impressed with BF4 on PS4 or PC for that matter.

AKS1008d ago

@mikeslemonade

You are making some ill-informed comments. The games with the best graphics on the market tend to be PC versions of MULTIPLATFORM games. Crysis 3. Metro: Last Light. Far Cry 3. It's nonsense that a game has to be built from the ground-up on PC to look spectacular.

Multiplatform game engines are not PS3 or 360 game engines, and they are updated and improved substantially over time.

AndrewLB1008d ago

Mikeslemonade- Can you please explain how these "next gen" consoles will be running better graphics than PC by the time GTA V is released? Especially since my "last gen" GTX 680 has 3x the texture fill-rate of the PS4, 20% more memory bandwidth that isn't shared, and has over 2x more flops.
No matter how anyone sugar coats things, the fact remains that Sony and Microsoft are selling you budget laptop parts in a nice looking case, with large profit margins... laughing all the way to the bank. They are a lot like Apple in the sense of all these companies have a cult like following who are so blinded by their own fanboyism that all they have to do is make new consoles noticeably faster and the moment an objective person tries to point this out... the drones spring into action to defend the company they worship, reminiscent of how a crazed Jihadi defends even the slightest mention of a derogatory comment about the prophet. lol.

mewhy321008d ago

I think I'll wait for the PC version since it's going to be epic.

MidnytRain1008d ago

Are_the_madness

What display are you using that allows you to see 200 frames?

duhast19111008d ago

@MidnytRain

Any display would do if you have a good graphics card. I play CSGO at 250+ FPS with my gtx 670 at 1080p on dell ST2420L

MidnytRain1008d ago

Retailers are saying that display is only 60hz. Why would it matter if you're getting over 200fps?

except r* never said a word about a pc version.this should be a rumour .too many pc fanboys dont care.(EA tag...why?)

NarooN1009d ago

Rockstar hasn't mentioned it, yet anyone with sense knows it's coming. Every main GTA game has come to PC's, and nVidia themselves said GTA V is coming later.

As for "PC fanboys" not caring, not sure who you're referring to, but this game will make Rockstar possibly another billion dollars once it releases on Steam. Don't underestimate PC *gamers*.

wtopez1009d ago

I bet you'll still be arguing against the PC version even after it's released. Are you by any chance the author of the "Keep GTA V off PC" petition? You seem to be on that troll level.

mattdillahunty1009d ago

talk about a misleading title. the title states that the game "will" have these things, yet the article says,

"Also note the x64 reference, which means that the game will have support for 64 Bit memory. ie more then 4 GB of RAM, ie very high texture packs inbound, whether Vanilla or Mods we cant say. So you can easily expect 2k + texture packs in the future."

expecting 2k textures based on conjecture is not the same as it being a fact that they're coming. especially since, again, the title makes it seem like we know for a fact they're coming.

also, please learn the different between 'then' and 'than' or just stop writing articles for sites.

jmc88881008d ago (Edited 1008d ago )

Again what do people think all the advertising is being based off of?

It sure isn't the PS3 or 360 version.

Do people think that there is a machine out there that runs the PS3 or 360 version at the level they see in all the videos and it isn't a PC?

AndrewLB1008d ago

mattdill- Just because a game is x64 doesn't mean it's going to be using more than 4gb memory. Plus I think you're confusing system memory with graphics memory. There is no way on earth GTA IV even with 4k textures will approach 4gb in graphics memory. I'm running 4k textures as well as 8gb worth of mods (about 50) to see how good I can make Skyrim look and have only hit the 2gb graphics memory use mark a few times.

ATi_Elite1008d ago

Nice but too bad 4K monitors/Tv's still cost an Arm and a Kidney.

I expect Icenhancer mod to take GTAV PC to the Next Level and my 1600p monitor and HD7970ghz CFX set-up is more than READY!

AndrewLB1008d ago

PS4 would have no problem running that setup. lol.

Beastforlifenoob1008d ago

you dont need 4k you need 2k!

An apple thunderbolt 27" screen is full 2k so buy that (still expensive but 2k IS AMAZING)

Also I think GTA V late to pc is a good omen because they are going to release a far superiour version, i think they wanted to spend more time on this amazing game to make the pc version crazy good.

Come on Rockstar, just announce the fucking thing.

aquamala1009d ago

they are making people like me to buy the game twice, and it's working!

3-4-51009d ago

Exactly. If they announce it now, people may hold off for the PC version.

Most can't though, because we've already waited 5 years for this game so it's a "must play now" sort of thing for a lot of us.

mkis0071008d ago

Yes it is absolutely smart of them. I really do not see any trouble with them releasing a pc xbox1 and ps4 version of the games due to the similarity in programming. I really do want to know if the speed of porting is as fast as rumored on ps4. Imagine them porting it in 3 weeks.

Volkama1008d ago

Funny how "must play now" is so true. If you played games a year behind the times the hobby would probably cost half the price, and the experiences wouldn't diminish in the slightest.

But we just... can't.... wait!

CaptainFaisal1009d ago

IKR ! They made more than a billion $ isn't that enough ?

cococabana1009d ago

Well the thing is, if they can milk it more. Why wouldnt they ? :P On one hand we have Valve where we beg them to milk their franchises (HL3, Portal3) and the other hand we have R*....

HammadTheBeast1009d ago (Edited 1009d ago )

775 mil actually. Profit that is.

AndrewLB1008d ago

it cost $300 million to make the game. Then you have to pay investers for risking their own money on the venture, which takes a large chunk considering such investments should make a return of about 8-12% per year. And finally there is always bonuses all throughout the company, and for government to then take 39% of the profit to pay for the welfare state, and lastly another 40% of the income of each employee at Rockstar.

My point is... the only greedy and immoral thing going on here is the government's screw*ng over of hardworking people... all so they can buy the votes of those non-working leeches who they redistribute those tax dollars to.

At least in europe they're not spending all the money, then borrowing an extra trillion a year as to not upset everyone living off the taxpayer.

codelyoko1008d ago

The teasing is as essential to game marketing then the actual release :P

DeadlyFire1008d ago

They are waiting for a reason.

I have seen words of some errors, crashes, and such for current gen consoles for GTAV which leads me to the fact that their game engine has everything all of the new game engines have that are "next gen ready" Which stresses current gen alot. It seems pretty interesting to me. Hey maybe its just me. All the things the PC edition has likely will be possible on next gen versions as well considering PS4/1BX run DX11, with 64-bit hardware. WiiU can utilize PC textures in a couple of its games I suspect PS4/1BX can as well to a greater extent. :)

esemce1008d ago

They have (want) to sell more copies of the console versions first and maybe DLC.

They know people will buy the console version and the PC version too.

It is 100% coming to PC and probably nextgen we just have to wait.

overlorduk1009d ago

After they didn't release RDR on PC I could have believed it. RDR would have sold extremely well on PC too. But with all the evidence it's pretty obvious that GTAV is coming to PC.

vishmarx1009d ago (Edited 1009d ago )

gta 4 sold horribly on the pc compared to consoles/how do you come to your conclusion

SlapHappyJesus1009d ago

@Vish
GTA IV is at the top of the Steam charts with every sale. I am sure the PC versions of all the GTA games did extremely well when they first hit and then continue to sell through sales.
Just because they may have low sales in terms of retail release, that doesn't mean they don't do well otherwise.
I can only assume they've shifted a lot of copies.
Besides, if GTA IV really did do poorly, I would simply point to the fact that you could never be sure whether or not, no matter the power, your PC will even run it properly.

Gorilla_Killa_X1009d ago

I saw somewhere, although it has been awhile, that GTA IV sold over 20 million on consoles and under 3 million on PC. If I can find source I will come back and provide it.

WeAreLegion1009d ago

The code for RDR was a mess. That's why they didn't port it to PC. It was built for consoles. Rockstar San Diego is incredible, but they didn't have a PC version in mind when they made it. Lol.

Bolts1009d ago

PC games do not move like consoles. Sleeping Dogs completely bombed on the console then proceeded to sell 2 millions to date with help of the PC is an example. Because unlike the consoles there is no stigma of being lastgen, PC games like GTA 4 always scale up very well.

SnakePlissken1009d ago (Edited 1009d ago )

Whats wrong with you? RDR wouldve sold terribly on the PC. Incase you havent noticed were now in 2013, this is not the 90s anymore im afraid. PC gaming is becoming extinct!

That is why you never see games coming out for the PC anymore. Why would you wanna even mess with playing a game on a PC? MMOs is about it. How is it fun having your game crash on you all the time? Sell your rig man and play games on a console for Christs sakes!!!

Rhaigun1008d ago

@SnakePlisson
You are terribly misinformed. Just about every third party game this year is on PC. Bioshock Infinite, Crisis 3, CoD, Battlefield 3, Batman, Tomb Raider... It's all there.

gtarhro71008d ago

@SnakePlissken Seriously? How about no?
YOu may of had a shitty rig, but mine never crashes. And really what's the difference between crashing and console games freezing? You still have to restart the system.
I used to play on tmy PS3/360 all the time, but when I decided to bite the bullet and build my own rig, I have never gone back, until GTA V came out, but seriously, after playing GTA IV on max settings and then playing GTA V on my PS3, it was a real bummer. A downgrade, don't get me wrong the game is badass, but as soon as it comes to PC i will sell my PS3 version for a PC one.

demonddel1008d ago

Wait what DDR3 isn't that supposed to be slow or underpower or its only when Microsoft uses it

Pandamobile1008d ago

Little do people realize that GDDR5 is just a different version of DDR3.

demonddel1008d ago

@pandamobile I don't know I'm not a tech guy but I know Microsoft is getting hammered for using it

FragMnTagM1008d ago (Edited 1008d ago )

He has 16gb of DDR3, and 3gb of GDDR5 on his graphics card.

PC's use both.

Here is the difference:

The principle differences are:
•DDR3 runs at a higher voltage that GDDR5 (typically 1.25-1.65V versus ~1V)
•DDR3 uses a 64-bit memory controller per channel ( so, 128-bit bus for dual channel, 256-bit for quad channel), whereas GDDR5 is paired with controllers of a nominal 32-bit (16 bit each for input and output), but whereas the CPU's memory contoller is 64-bit per channel, a GPU can utilise any number of 32-bit I/O's (at the cost of die size) depending upon application ( 2 for 64-bit bus, 4 for 128-bit, 6 for 192-bit, 8 for 256-bit, 12 for 384-bit etc...). The GDDR5 setup also allows for doubling or asymetric memory configurations. Normally (using this generation of cards as example) GDDR5 memory uses 2Gbit memory chips for each 32-bit I/O (I.e for a 256-bit bus/2GB card: 8 x 32-bit I/O each connected by a circuit to a 2Gbit IC = 8 x 2Gbit = 16Gbit = 2GB), but GDDR5 can also operate in what is known as clamshell mode, where the 32-bit I/O instead of being connected to one IC is split between two (one on each side of the PCB) allowing for a doubling up of memory capacity. Mixing the arrangement of 32-bit memory controllers, memory IC density, and memory circuit splitting allows of asymetric configurations ( 192-bit, 2GB VRAM for example)
•Physically, a GDDR5 controller/IC doubles the I/O of DDR3 - With DDR, I/O handles an input (written to memory), or output (read from memory) but not both on the same cycle. GDDR handles input and output on the same cycle.

The memory is also fundamentally set up specifically for the application it uses:
System memory (DDR3) benefits from low latency (tight timings) at the expense of bandwidth, GDDR5's case is the opposite. Timings for GDDR5 would seems unbelieveably slow in relation to DDR3, but the speed of VRAM is blazing fast in comparison with desktop RAM- this has resulted from the relative workloads that a CPU and GPU undertake. Latency isn't much of an issue with GPU's since their parallel nature allows them to move to other calculation when latency cycles cause a stall in the current workload/thread. The performance of a graphics card for instance is greatly affected (as a percentage) by altering the internal bandwidth, yet altering the external bandwidth (the PCI-Express bus, say lowering from x16 to x8 or x4 lanes) has a minimal effect. This is because there is a great deal of I/O (textures for examples) that get swapped in and out of VRAM continuously- the nature of a GPU is many parallel computations, whereas a CPU computes in a basically linear way.
