GTAV Porting on GTAIV PC Only Proves Rockstar Greatness

Modders are almost done with their "GTAV porting" effort, bringing Los Santos to GTA IV PC. But this only proves Rockstar greatness. (Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

Every day I hope to read their announcement. One day I'll be right.

I hope to God that when it does come out modders will have the same enthusiasm about doing a Red Dead Redemption port from GTA V.
Alexious  +   244d ago
That might be a little more difficult. But it's a damn shame that RDR never made it to PC.
Audiggity  +   244d ago
RDR on PC would be sweet.
Grave  +   244d ago
^Totally agree. It looked amazing on console, I couldn't imagine how sick it would look on PC.

Yeah. Sad it never came to PC but, hell, I still own the console version.
It's not like it stopped me from playing the game.

Lol at people thinking GTA 5 is a good game. Its decent but not even top 50 this year.
Audiggity  +   244d ago
Not even top 50?

Sorry bro - but 2013 was tough to even come up with a top 25. And if you don't think GTAV is a top 3 purely from a technical achievement standpoint... well... you'd be wrong.

But, hey, maybe you'll get an 'Agree' somewhere down the line.

He has his opinion and you have yours, yet you think your opinion is fact... classic n4g comment.
il-JumperMT  +   244d ago
Top 3?

Ni No Kuni
Bioshock Infinite
The Last of Us

They are all better then GTA5. I can continue for ever.

@gcolley

Yes - everyone has an opinion. If everyone's opinion was taken seriously and without falter there would be complete World peace and debates would never occur.

My opinion in this case stems from the fact that GTA V was one of the most technically brilliant games ever developed. The time, money, detail and creativity that went into it is unbelievable. It also smashed sales records beyond anything else that has ever been released in any entertainment industry. It is also ranked in the top 5 "all time" games based on aggregate review scores.

So, to say it isn't "in the top 50" of 2013 is silly.

You need to be able to rank opinions based on validity and to look outside your own little bubble.

For example - I personally thought Bioshock Infinite was not a good game. Extremely linear. But, I appreciate the creativity that went into making it and understand why it is very well regarded. If I had the chance I'd request a refund for Bioshock Infinite... but I'm not naive enough to say it is a universally bad game just because I didn't like it.

Numbers, stats, sales, reviews, etc. mean something.

Decent, its friggin amazing....one of the best games ever made simple as....
Audiggity  +   243d ago
Yeah, agreed 100%... from an objective standpoint, you can't falter it much (outside of the GTA Online issues, which ultimately stem from innovation and doing something that no one else in the industry can pull off).

From a subjective standpoint, one could argue that it's not a great game. And that's fine. But, consumers have spoken, and based on the almighty dollar - your negative opinion loses to GTA V DLC and GTA VI... sorry!
kingdom18  +   244d ago
Agreed, well maybe not completely. But that aside I've played a few other games this year I loved much more.
neogeo  +   244d ago
nice

What I don't get is that they made GTA V on a PC then ported to PS3/360, so why they taking so long to release a PC version?
Alexious  +   244d ago
I don't think they made GTAV with PC in mind. PS3 and even 360 architectures are different than that of a PC.

PS4 & X1 on the other hand, are very similar, so there's hope for smaller or no delays for the next GTA.
Murad  +   244d ago
Actually, you're incorrect. The X1 architecture is more so similar to a normal pc's one, while the ps3 is not. I'm not entirely sure about the 360, but as far as I know, developing for the kinect isn't difficult, as some of the colleagues at my school programmed for it several times. I personally just think that Rockstar just didn't want to do a PC port, I mean, look at GTA 4, that game sucks without mods. It takes a hell of a good computer to run it at max, and it still doesn't look as good as many of the other games, such as Just Cause, and that takes up less than have of it's usages.

I don't get why rockstar are being so secretive about gta v for pc it's not like they have to protect their console versions of gta v,they've already sold over 30 million copies no reason to think a gta v announcement for pc could jeopardize the console versions potential lifetime revenue. And with that insane amount of revenue they just got, a pc version would be easy for them to afford even if it happened to not sell well.
Murad  +   244d ago
Wait, can someone explain to me how it proves Rockstar's greatness? The modders are doing the work, so that shows Rockstar is amazing, what?
SneakyDoo  +   236d ago
This is exceptional towards a modders skill level, but come on- Rockstar knows what they're doing. no modders are gonna "beat them to it."
