A new video from Rockstar Games proofes: there will be no PC-version of Red Dead Redemption. The video disappeared after serveral minutes but a Youtube-user manages to capture it.
Is this a real chance for all of the xboxers and ps3ers to join together for once and troll the pc section saying "nyah nyah pants on fire no red dead for the mouses wire"? and who said console gameing was dying! Comeon consolers, let us for a minute let peace reign for a while. Let us become the cowboys off of brokeback mountain and share the same small tent while not letting the Pc gamer in. No licking each others butts though. ;)
Wonder where that LOLconsoles fool is at right now... Just sayin.' But anyways, it really is a shame that the PC fellows will not be able to play this their way. Sure, I'm sick of the elitists, but the same can be said of console fanboys. There really is no need to demonize the majority of PC gamers. Anyways, this game plus mod support and the extra graphics effects that modern GPUs are capable of would have been absolutely killer. At the shame time, while it is definitely a shame, I guess if Rockstar San Diego doesn't feel like they are capable of properly coding the PC version or don't have the money and time to make it perfect, then they are better off just doing what they can do perfectly: the console versions.
pc emulation 5 -10
This was me after watching the newest red dead trailer....... http://www.creepygif.com/im...
i dont care...we pc gamers have a lot to play right now... rockstar make some good ports for the pc, and maybe, just maybe we'll forgive you:)
Are the disagrees because you'd like to lick Butts?
Valid point, except PS3 can utilise the mouse/keyboard. And screw your tent! I'm going to a ranch and killing everyone inside and claiming it for myself.
Good, now the PC supremacists could shut up for a while.
@lagoonalight Every heard of something called emulation? Pretty sure when you say classics you refer to the PS1/PS2. The PC can emulate that.
Lol, I can play PS2 games on my PC but not my PS3 :(
All PC gamers I know have either a Xbox360, PS3 or both. However there are a lot f console gamers who don't have or have never even owned a gaming PC. So who's loosing out on the most exclusives?
If you're a loser then go right ahead. I honestly didn't think there were that many pc gamers on here for console owners to team up on. Whatever floats your boat though. On topic: This is...kinda' sucky, lol. Nah, really that sucks for pc gamers because RDR looks awesome.
Looks like PS3 version is the right choice to buy this game. I really was waiting the PC version.
I hope there's a PC version for mods later on. I'm getting the PS3 version and im hoping it will look as great as those screen shots but then again they're so tiny just like how LP2 looks like on screen shots compared to actual gameplay full of jaggies. It better be at least 720p this time around without all that blurriness and pop ups that GTA4 had.
GTA4 all over again. PC version will most likely be released at Christmas.
but a stable and glitch free version will never be released
Red Dead Revolver wasn't on PC so I don't think this will be.
It might since Red Dead Revolver isnt as big as Redemption. Also, it's being advertised like a full GTA game.
These guys suck at pc games anyway. Worst coding ever on GTA4.
they don't suck at coding on the PC, the PC is just not interesting for rockstar like the PS3 is(or now was) for valve low budget and tight deadlines for ports = scuky ports like GTA4-PC and Orange box-PS3
How is high end gaming not interesting? Direct X 11? The latest video technologies? I know I would totally prefer to have to work within 512mb ram for audio, video and gameplay. There is no way I would want to see what could be done with a 1gb video card, and 4gb or more of ram. No way. Too much freedom. I'm sure that DX9 is totally fresh and new too. Seriously though. I can see budget being a factor, but mostly it's laziness. There is a lot more work to make a pc game run well across the board, than a simple console game where all your hardware is predetermined.
They don't just suck at the PC, they suck at every platform. Sure GTA IV LOOKED great on the PS3 and 360, but they both suffered from a terrible frame rate. Every game play video I've seen of Red Dead Redemption looks as though it has the same problem, although I hope that is not the case.
Looking over the videos this does seem to be true. Let's hope they pull off at least a stead 30fps.
the weird thing is that might actually mean that they are 'shooting'(in the context of the whole cowboy shoot-em up thingy that the game stands for) for a pc release sometime in the future
perhaps the date that their shooting for (in terms of a PC release) is currently a moving target.
I didn't even know the game existed 5 minutes ago, so I really don't care. It's better they not embarrass themselves by giving us another s**ty port like GTA4.
"I didn't even know the game existed 5 minutes ago" Please give me your gaming card and exit the building. Seriously bro, where have you been? This is bound to be one of the biggest games of the year (or even the decade) and you've never heard of it? That's pretty surprising to me, but I don't know, I guess it's possible. Somehow.
Ray William Johnson? I doubt it, eventually it will come to the pc but i dont want a badly ported game rockstar
Perhaps now we can get submitters to stop filling the PC section with RDR spam. This game was never going to come to the PC, as a PC gamer I accept that and to be honest I am not all that bothered about it. I dunno "cowboy and Indian" games have never really floated my boat.
Just get a 360 emulator and play it
360 emulator lol ? you got time machine ? RDR not coming to pc dont bother me much i pre ordered it ps3. and people saying gta 4 bad port it was but runs lot better with latest update.
While I do not believe this title will come to PC, sigh...will have to settle for it on my PS3. The article and video rather supports the fact that there is a PC version in development(despite being taken down because it looked really stupid as a promo video)...I was expecting a direct quote from R* or something. Ah well, won't be able to play it until September anyway, maybe word will change then.
eh, this is too bad but, still this game is going to rock!
PC gaming hasn't been shown much love lately....i mean, star craft is cool and all and other titles, but i really wanted to test this game on my new 2010 build, and why are there so many pc n4g haters around,like really, there is nothing wrong playing console ports on a pc, and if you want a console fell, but yourself a 360 controller addon, its quite simple,and for you fan boys, consoles age fast!!!! and for us pc gamers, who says we have to put everything on high settings, we can easily match the console counterpart, just put the game on mid settings and your good to go, so really, stop bashing on the pc, its 1.uncalled for, 2.PC gaming is the father of gaming machinery. and 3. its PC's that code and port your games into disk so you may play them on your console, so when you think about it , pc's are the leading system when making alll games. Thank you, now i just may have to buy this on ps3....sigh...
My post was purely tongue in cheek (at least I hope it's tongue.) only posted because I'm sick of the ps3 xbox wars not meant to be taken seriously as PC hate. I love my Pc, it just isn't powerful enough to game seriously on.
the pc has been shown lots of love, dont let the media and 14 year olds fool you.
if the video was legit they never take down the video , but previouslu game informer have posted pc version along side consoles
That's bullshit. PC is getting no love lately. Considering our machines are sometimes 3-4x more powerful than an Xbox 360.
some pc are more powerful others are not.it might be cos ppl steal the game.what was cod mw2 numbers at downloads.
And how many modded Xboxs get banned every year? What do you think they're modded for? Piracy is going to happen regardless of the platform. And using MW2 as your example is kind of pointless, since Activision's lack of dedicated servers caused an outrage from PC gamers, prompting several thousand exclamations that they would pirate the game to show their dissatisfaction over Activision's treatment for their PC multiplayer (which is crap imho). Granted, I'm not saying it's right that so many people pirated the game, and I'm not saying that piracy doesn't run rampant on the PC. I just think piracy is an issue for all gaming platforms (except maybe the PS3 so far).
Darn it, I was looking forward to a PC version.
More than likely the majority of PC gamers will download the game without reward to developers so expect this to be common practice.
starcraft 2 that's the most anticipated game ever.. .. if you are korean
A shame really. I would have bought RDR for PC without any hesitation since it sounds like an awesome game. But running out and buying a console just to play it? Not gonna happen. If they (Rockstar) don't want my money, it's their loss. I'll just take it elsewhere. I can find plenty of other things to spend it on.
PS If you disagree YOU are a pirate!
so how does that prove there is no pc version coming?
I have a good PC and a PS3 but buy all my games for PS3 rather than PC. I only buy games for PC if they aren't available on PS3. I prefer to use DS3 or sixaxis rather than mouse/keyboard (lot of messing around trying to get pads to work with certain games on PC). I also know PS3 games work perfectly without having to go into settings and optimizing things, i like the simplicity of the PS3. I am not a graphics whore and PS3 games look good enough, don't need to play games at higher resolution. I use my 32 inch LCD for both PC and PS3 so I can't go above 1080i anyhow. So as you can tell I would get RDR on PS3 anyhow even though my PC would be able to run it. It is bad for those who only have a PC and want this game. I can't see many people missing out on RDR as most gamers have a 360 or PS3, not just a PC.
I find that many games work like crap on console, especially the ps3. If by working perfectly you mean with huge framerate drops, glitches and other unfixable problems then all the power to you.
Games made for PS3 architecture run great on PS3. The challenge with PS3 is convincing develpers to code specifically for that platform, when the real money is delivering a multiplatform game.
anyway, i'll get this game for PS3
I was holding out to see if there would be a PC version, but was always skeptical after the mess that was GTA4. No great loss I suppose. I may pick it up later on the 360 when I'm done with my current "games to buy list" which still stretches back into last year.
Guys they said no PC version for Grand Theft Auto IV but look what happened Just wait 6 months and it will be ported by Rockstar Toronto I will be getting the PS3 version but as some as the PC version is on its way there will be no doubts in my mind to trade it for the PC version
Was expecting the PC version. Looks like PS3 version is again the right choice to buy this game.
I love how almost nobody acknowledges the fact there has been no official announcement about a PC version from Rockstar, and practically everyone takes this video as a sign that there will not be a PC version of the game. I watched very closely, but I didn't see anything that said "For PS3 and Xbox 360 only. No PC release ever." All I saw was a video with what looked to be a superimposed image of "PC" on it. Watch the video again, and pause it when the letters show up. Notice how everything in the video has a slight double to it except the letters? Not only has Rockstar confirmed there would not be a PC release, but Game Informer has the PC listed as being in development. I would bet money that just like the GTA titles, this will get a release on the PC 6 months to a year later.
Most of the core PC gamers are the hardcore types. I'm one of them, and great thing about being hardcore is you have everything. The best PC hardware and a PS3 console as well. So the idea of PC gamers "missing" any console title is pretty ridiculous. Its actually the other way around. Its the console only crowd that's missing out on games like Fallout 3, Crysis 2, Dragon Age, and Mass Effect 2. They're not playing it the way it's meant to be played and they're getting totally raped on the content side as well when you consider things like mods.
Rockstar Toronto's site claims something for PC is being worked on. Probably Max Payne 3 though. http://www.rockstartoronto.... (bottom line)
