After being completely unresponsive about GTA V PC, Rockstar has suddenly started dropping hints about an upcoming announcement. We also look at all the evidence about a GTA V PC port so far.
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.
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.
Zuperman 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.
@Zuperman "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
Except Xbox One and PS4 SDK's DIRECTLY RUN games on Windows 7 and a GTX 780.
@ATi_Elite - the PS4 is not DX11, that's a MS feature.
"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.
"Except for GTA:Advanced, GTA:LibertyCityStories, GTA:ViceCityStories, and GTA:ChinaTownWars. Those never made it to PC." I'm pretty sure you can play those on PC through emulators.
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.
A comment by somebody who obviously doesn't know anything about PCs...
dsswoosh, if you ever were a PC gamer, you were a really stupid one. That is your fault alone. 'Every new title' Complete and utter BS.
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).
Everytime a comment like this is made a console gamer dies of ignorance. Yes, you can die of that. By you I mean you.
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.
Dsswoosh, clearly you're a troll and have no idea what your talking about.
@dsswoosh, i have never read such crap, i don't believe you have ever seen the inside of a PC, you have no idea what you are talking about.
Wow exactly none of that was true. That's actually kind of impressive, right?
Some stuff there I could actually see happening to inexperienced people trying to build their first PC, as there are a lot of processors, connection and power standards out there... But how could anyone putting up a PC together by itself ever get the numer one rule wrong? ATX case = ATX Mobo, power supply, etc... There no "screws don't fit" situation unless you are intelectually challeged or can't read the damn box.
I was going to rant on how wrong you were... but, ummm... well. Look up. Looks like my work's done here.
always 8 months later? lmao, how many times has that happened
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.
if you really think its not coming to pc then you are just one big ignorant kid. of course its coming to pc, you dont need any proof to know this. just cause it didnt come with consoles doesnt mean it wont come to pc
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.
0 agrees? Really? Does anyone on N4G even play GTAV? I got your back Zombie... sounds f*%%ing gnarly.
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.
What are you talking about? The same damn game? Are you mixing up CoD for GTA? Soul Caliber for GTA? Dynasty Warriors? Madden? Fifa? Tiger Woods? Battlefield? 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.
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.
We already know why.
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.
Coulda sworn we got these types of articles on red dead redemption too. We all know that turned out.
I honestly mean no offense but what are with these people who are obessively not wanting GTA V to come to PC, enjoy it on your Ps360 and let the PC players enjoy it too, why do you want PC players to not be able to enjoy the same game you enjoyed
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
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.
RumbleFish, what are you talking about? The game Sold TREMENDOUSLY WELL on "ancient" consoles... It broke all time records. Do you realy think you can hurt em much by not buying any more games? You are delusional.
Keep in mind although both R* games, RDR doesn't have NEARLY as big of an install base as the mighty GTA.
GTA is awesome!
Seriously it's like the 5th time this site and that 'author' made exactly same article. Please stop approving this garbage. On topic: I believe the PC version will announced in January.
This really shouldn't be in the "News" category, since it's just a load of useless conjecture we've heard thousands of times before.
This game was fun, played it on consoles, and then I moved on to better things. By the time PC gets this, I'm not even going to waste my money buying that version. It's not worth the giant wait.
March 2014. Mark my words.
Its more likely... GTA V GOTY Edition PC - May 2014
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.
wait,still have people waiting to play this game in pc,sorry guys rockstars master plan is what you pc guys buy the game twice.they are to smart to left what you buy the best version of the game for cheap in steam.wait first a ps4 and xbox one version in 1080p at 60 bucks.
Can't wait for the PC version, sick of playing the BETA version on consoles.
lmao its surely the other way around. PC games always feel incomplete, most of them arent even finished games, just giant tech demos. One thing that console games ALWAYS have over PC games is polish.
PC games always feel incomplete? Like GTA Online the biggest console release? #EXPOSED
Haha except for all the screen tearing, jaggies, pop-in and stuttering framerates. Polished? Yeah right. Many console games feel broken to me. Others just feel substandard.
"One thing that console games ALWAYS have over PC games is polish." Yup, PS3 version of Skyrim says Hello!
30 fps and sub 1080p on new tech is hardly polish
Yeah, like how PC gamers beta tested Diablo 3 for console gamers.
Yeah like console gamers have always said "No,no,not theres no difference between 720p 30fps and 1080p 60fps and then when the PS4 launches they say they arent going to buy an xbox one because it plays games at 720p LOL so now you console gamers can tell the difference, well guess what we have been treated to 1080p, 60fps since 2007. And also a bunch of games released on Console before PC so it mitigates your argument that PC gamers "beta" test for console gamers.
yet, it sold 12 million copies while youre stuck at 3? maybe not even that many.....so our beta did better. just like your beta for gta 5 did better too, cause if you reallly think were not getting gta you are one ignorant kid
I'm hungry for some anti-aliasing
thats pathetic if thats all a brand new 1000 dollar plus gpu can do over systems 7 and 8 years old
My 660ti was $250 and it can play everything I throw at it and still look better than any console game.
any snes game
What???? Hahaha... when is the last time you saw a PC game run on even remotely up-to-date hardware??? You shouldn't even be allowed to comment. 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.
circles around ps4 and xbox one in numbers only not in production
GTA will come to PC, PS4, and Xbox one.
Does anyone really want to play this game over again? if i was going to play a gta game again it would be vice city back when they were actually fun.
I'm finished with this now, moved on.
