As a PC gamer looking at that list of WEAK evidence it doesn't give me any solid info that GTAV PC is coming.

GTAV was built on a PC so of course you are gonna have PC code in the Console version.

In the past both AMD, Nvidia, and STEAM have had place holders in their updates for games that never made it to the PC.

Now as far as me KNOWING a PC version is coming, Simple GTA PC is always 8 months later and it's pretty much a no brainer to see R* release the PC version along with XB1/PS4 version

Take your time R* that way I can buy GTAV PC with all the DLC for ONE low price.

IcenHancer Mod 2 FTW!

Haha, thanks for commenting :P

> "GTA V was built on a PC" not really that doesn't mean it has to have PC Specific code. And the code is pretty specific, Dx 11, 64 bit mem, and more etc....
>The place holders you are referring to were the Nov Release ones. The retailer that marks it as March 2014 is actually in conjunction with Eurogamer who hav an insder in the R*.
>AMD Drivers GTA 5 Executable?

& people say PC is awesome lol..

By the time PC gamers get GTA V, GTA X gets released on console gaming.

"And the code is pretty specific, Dx 11, 64 bit mem"

also this can mean XB1/PS4 which by the way are DX11 64bit! LOL

I see what you are saying though but I do agree that GTAV PC is coming but I just think THIS evidence is weak.
BattleAxe  +   662d ago
I have no doubt that they will release GTA5 on PC. The only one that they've never brought to PC is Chinatown Wars, which is no big deal. GTA sells great on every platform it gets released on, so I'm certain it will come to PC once again.

The one game that I really can't believe Rockstar hasn't brought to PC is Red Dead Redemption, otherwise I think every other game franchise that they've made has come to PC.

Sigh - PC has games the consoles don't too. All you need do is look them up. PC games never get the advertisement the Console ones do because they don't have a massive company to piss out money on ads.

"By the time PC gamers get GTA V, GTA X gets released on console gaming. "

And GTA V on PC will STILL look better than GTA X on consoles

"Now as far as me KNOWING a PC version is coming, Simple GTA PC is always 8 months later"

Except for GTA:Advanced, GTA:LibertyCityStories, GTA:ViceCityStories, and GTA:ChinaTownWars. Those never made it to PC.

I'm sure GTA:V will be coming for PC, only because Rockstar would be fools to not make it and leave all that money sitting in our pockets.
XB1/PS4 while also likely, I think they're less so than a PC version. Rockstar already made a billion dollars on 360/PS3 which means a lot of people already have it for last(?) gen and the only reason for them to upgrade would be prettier console graphics, and I don't see that many people doing that.

Of corse GTAA and storys and chinatown never made it to pc they were made for handhelds.

Should have just left the first half of that comment out. There was no reason for those games to be on PC. Good points in the second half though.

Every new PC title requires spending money on a brand new GPU, which doesnt fit your motherboard, which means replacing the motherboard, RAM, Processor.

Then you discover the cables from your PSU and hard drive are different connections, so you replace them too.

Then the motherboard screws dont fit your case so you replace that.

After benefitting from one game, your PC doesnt run the next game, so you go through the whole process again.

Until you finally give up and say................

...........i cant be arsed any more, i think ill stick with my console thanks.

I've been using the same i7-Core 920 CPU, ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 Motherboard, and Corsair TX750 since 2009. Yes, I've upgraded from an nVidia 280, to an nVidia 580, and now an nVidia 780 Classified since then but not because I "had" to. I just prefer to have upper tier GPUs. And guess what? IT STILL ALL WORKS PERFECTLY!

If that was your experience, then it's your own fault for not doing the proper research before purchasing components. You just sound lazy (no research before buying) and/or ignorant with your comments (probably never even owned a gaming PC).

I put my PC together a little over a year ago now, and haven't had any issue.
No need to replace anything, and I won't have to for several more years, and even then it won't be because I 'have' to, but because I want to so I can play the latest&greatest at ultra settings.

I don't know what you did, but I think you're doing it wrong. Actually...I know you're doing it wrong.

The exception to the rule is GTA III, it was only 7 months and a couple weeks between the console and PC version.
Other than that one though, they've all been released on PC exactly 8 months after the console.

I want it on my PS4 damnit! NOW! NOW NOW NOW!

I had a 15 minute run at 5 stars last night because I was hanging from a tank being lifted by a Cargobob. My friends were driving the helicopter carrying the tank while I was in the tank spinning, laughing hysterically and shooting.

They drop me off on the top of the skyscraper and I sit there for like 5 minutes while they hover around me and I clear out all the police choppers. Once clear, they pick me up again, we continue to cause absolute hell for another 5 minutes before they explode sending me barraling down to the street. SOMEHOW (I don't know HOW!) I survived, ended up boarding a train, hopping off in a tunnel and escaping the 5 star wanted level.

NOW TELL ME THIS GAME DOESN'T NEED A FNCKING SHARE FEATURE..... I could have re-watched that a million times already.

Prepare yourself for "meh". If you liked GTA III, GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, and GTA IV...you'll like GTA V. Because it's the same damn game as all of those. Don't expect anything innovative or game changing. Ignore the hype. Checkout the discrepancy between critic scores and user scores on metacritic.

Recycled nonsense certainly exists... but if you are myopic enough to think it exists in the GTA series... you need to get your brain checked.
RumbleFish  +   661d ago
To be honest the right answer to this release tactics is to wait for the PC version to be really cheap with all DLC.

I love GTA and have bought all of them and some of them twice, but this tactic to let PC gamers wait just so sell the crap out of it on consoles is a nasty one. Tactics like these disgust me and are an insult to PC gamers.

It's coming these articles aren't needed. What you should be inquiring about is RDR, why haven't you gotten that game on your machines yet.
Mr Tretton  +   662d ago
We already know why.
Xristo  +   662d ago
When RDR was being being built, PC gaming was pretty low on the revenue chart. Steam (digital in general) was just starting to pick up and there was no guarantee that R* would make money from a hard/digital copy. These games take forever to make (5 years for GTAV). So it makes sense to me why R* never made a PC version. Could they just make a port? I'm sure they could. But I have no clue how hard THAT even is. Not a game developer here. :P

Hate to break this to you, but traditional PC gaming is still pretty low on the revenue chart, once you factor out social games and F2P stuff.

Since most digital sales companies (i.e Valve, GMG, GOG, Gamersgate) do not publish their revenue, where do you get your data? 60+ million Steam users alone suggests possible big revenue. There is more evidence supporting a "guess" (since that is all one can do) against your claim than for it.

Mr_Butata  +   661d ago
It's not a matter of not wanting. I couldn't care less if GTA came out on PC, WiiU, Android,iOS... Seriously, people dont care (at least i dont).

But, people seem like they are daydreaming on this subject. They have all this crazy theories that backup the title coming to PC. Until they make a announcement, theres no reason why people should be thinking that the game is realy coming out.

Or maybe wait... 2 of the 3 characters of the GTA main story is Trevor (P)hilips and Franklin (C)linton... The first leters of their last name are P and C! ITS OFFICIAL: GTA IS COMING OUT ON PC!!! :D
RumbleFish  +   661d ago
Everyone disagreeing with Beastforlifenoob has my pitty.

I will never buy a R* game again when they don't bring their games to PC though I have a PS4.

We have power! The power of our wallet. We should use this power.

Unless the multiplayer is 64-128 players, and we can make our own game modes.. i won't really be interested.

I've heard a few people say the multiplayer is boring, but i'm not so sure about that. Can't be worse than GTA IV's MP surely.

the SA multiplayer mod on PC is way better and more fun than the multiplayer in IV, so it would really suck if V's multiplayer isn't even up to SA-MP mod standards.

And also a bunch of games released on Console before PC so it mitigates your argument that PC gamers "beta" test for console gamers.
allgamespc2012  +   661d ago

I haven't upgraded my PC for 2 years, and even then it was a modest upgrade, my rig can run CIRCLES around the Xbox One or the PS4.

Consoles are pathetic lumps of convenience, only valid for playing with friends in a living room. The masses are stupid and can't build working PCs... the ones that are smart enough to get them working, but not smart enough to support the PC gaming industry, pirate everything. These are the ONLY reasons why the tide has shifted to consoles after all these years.

Well, this is the only reason I haven't bought GTA V for my PS3, just waiting out for the PC version. The icing on the cake would be if it released on the PS4, since I have more 'fun' playing on consoles than PC; more friends on consoles, prefer controllers over KnB, etc. If not, PC it is. I'm pretty sure my lovely GTX 770 could handle GTA V in all it's definitive glory :P

you guys still waiting ? it's not as amazing as you'd think. mods will probably make it better though.
Are_The_MaDNess  +   662d ago
well any game experience is much better when the framerate is smooth and not slow. and when the response time on controls are fast and smooth.
i played and finished the game on the PS3, but its a broken mess IMO like most console games now.
they rather have a high graphical standpoint and physics and such over smooth framerate and response time.

that is the main problems with games today.
and its really bothering me.
rather play CSGO and Dota 2 over the last of us or battlefield or even uncharted 3.
uncharted 2 did run better than the last two ND games.
games like Ratchet and Clank and Mario and many other games still look and runs better than most AAA games today.

a slow game takes away the precision of the game and the player and therefor also the fun.
