RockstarNetwork.net reports: "Today in the comments section of a news post on Rockstar's Newswire, someone asked them if there was any plans to bring Red Dead Redemption to PC, and Rockstar answered them!"
I'd be really surprised if it didn't seeing as it will likely be as popular as GTA4 which inevitably was taken to PC.
I thought everyone knew... November 2010 just like GTA 4.
It will imo, once again will probably be poorly optimized but will be superior to all platforms.
it's ok R*. I'll take it from here and help you answer that. Is Red Dead Redemption Coming to PC? HELL YES! - but you need to wait a little longer! next question?
I give it 6 months to a year before it comes out on PC.
better come to pc....gta 4 sucked on consoles..it played so much better on pc
GTA 4 played just fine on consoles. I would love to see RDR come to the PC though (even though I'm not a PC gamer) just to see all the cool mods people come up with. Back in the day there was some amazing GTA San Andreas mods that just amazed me. Not sure about GTA 4 because I never really followed it.
1. the PC GTA4 has a gigantic amount bugs 2. no rockstar social club BS on the consoles 3. you need a decent PC to at least get the same detail as the consoles, it was a hasty port 4. driving sucks on keyboard(you can only give full acceleration or no acceleration, same for brakes)
it played much worse on the pc, poor optimization
they better code it better this time, even high end pc users were having a bit of trouble running it at desired setting
This is a shame. Of all the platforms to be shafted, the PC should not be one of them. Rockstar is really doing a disservice to PC gamers. GTA got its start on PC. What reason is there for it to not be on PC with better visuals and mod support? They've had 2 years to optimize the RAGE engine for PC. It shouldn't be that hard. It was built for 360 and the 360 is close to PC architecture.
R* have been console oriented since GTA III. They've made the majority of their success from the PS2 generation. Read Dead Revolver never made it ti PC either, so one can deduce that the IP is very much console centric. As much as I'd love to see those beautiful landscapes in 1080p with the draw distance turned up to 100%, it likely won't happen. They seem to be pretty lackaday with regards PC these days. They made just about zero optimization for Rage thus far and will likely continue to do so.
R* do seem to neglect the PC, but the PS2 games they made are the ones that cemented their reputation. Maybe they don't see the money on PC, but i really don't know. They must have some reason for not putting out games on the PC considering they are a good dev team and can do it if they want.
mmmmmmmm.....another generic sanbox on pc........ ...... ...... ...... no thanks
youve never played it.
Play it, dude, it's one of the best games I can remeber playing.
If you think RDR is generic, then you must live in a land where fairys wipe your butt!
You clearly no nothing about the game.
It is amazing what passes for news these days, the guy on the Rockstar Wire is a PR guy repeating what the developers said weeks ago in a podcast that is all. I don't know if RDR will come to the PC, I don't think people should "assume" it will come to the PC. I personally couldn't care less even if we got a PC version it would be of such god awful quality as to be totally useless anyway. I just wish they would stop making pathetic articles like this that make it look like PC gamers care.
if the pc is the "superior" platform (as the pc fanboys continuously spam in console threads).......why is it always the same question - will "game x" be coming to the pc? - i mean, if it's the "superior" platform.......wouldn't all games (not counting console exclusives) be on pc first? it's never that way - always on consoles first and wait and see for pc......AW even got cancelled on pc.
So long as more gamers get their hands on this awesome game. What does it matter?
First, stop asking fanboys anything. Ask a gamer. The answer btw is money. It has nothing to do with specs.
This is an age old trick by developers, they release the console version first which means good ole Joe Q Mug goes out and buys the console version even though he would much rather have the PC version. Then they release the PC version a lil bit later and good ole Joe Q Mug goes out and buys the PC version. Now had they released the PC version at the same time as the console version it is likely that Joe Q Mug would have just gone with the PC version thus costing Rockstar their console sale. As for AW it is pretty obvious why they cancelled the PC version, Microsoft are well aware they cannot compete with the PC so instead they just make sure the PC never gets the game. Don't believe me ? Well how about we hear it from the mouth of Microsoft Games then :- "If we launch a game that is on 360 and PC simultaneously, we basically shoot ourselves in the foot by allowing the German market to choose to play the PC version -- because they are more likely to buy that than spend their money on the Xbox 360." http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... That is why some companies choose to hold back the PC version of their game and naturally sales of the game on the PC suffer for that. However that is too close to the truth so they blame the convenient "bogey man" which is piracy.
when i buy games that later come out on pc i just pirate them
I don't think it's about a superior console for the game developer, it's about making more money on consoles before porting it to PC due to the massive amount of leechers that would get it for free.
Exactly! It's a lot easier to pirate a game on the PC than it is to do it on a console. For profit from a developer standpoint, any console is a "superior" platform. For potential quality of the graphics and features/technology of a game, I would say PC is definitely the superior platform.
RDR isn't much of a pirating target. Sure, it will be cracked and traded and everything, we know that. But this is a game that needs to be played online to really play it. Pirates can't do that with crappy cracked copies. It will sell well on PC. But Rockstar will wait til the console's sales slows to a crawl, and then suddently be like, "oh heres the PC version with an amazing new feature called 'mouse support'", to boost up sales again. They've done the same thing with GTA and seeming they haven't even announced a PC version yet theres no reason to think they've changed tactics.
R* shouldn't be dumb, bring it to PC.
They are probably working out the kinks for multiplayer. Single player should be quite easy to port over. Also, they probably are perfecting a mod editor for the mod community.
Pretty simple concept: Technology: PC "Superior" Revenue: Consoles "Superior" I believe the reason you here "Please port Game X to the PC" and hardly ever "Please port Game X to a console" is because honestly, a PC can do anything a console can do....can't say the same about a console. I am a PC fan but if I were a company in today's age....i would be developing for consoles. It's where the money's at.....unfortunate...sad....tr uth...
I have it on PS3, but I would get it again for my PC, because it is a beautiful game and I'm curious to see what it will look like on PC. BTW I'm shocked at how much this looks better than GTA4, well on PS3 anyway GTA4 was a blurry mess. I really hope it comes to PC, not because of fanboys blabla bla I just want people to forget that and enjoy it.
The truth is that the Houser Bros has been working with Sony for years, and you guys should get off their nuts. Thank you and have a nice day.
Well if its anything like the lazy assed gta4 port then fek that... & the Superior gaming platform argument is invalid - a good gaming experience is a good gaming experience, no matter the platform, Things come out on consoles first mainly because of exclusive deals with publishers/hardware vendors - look at xbox and mw2, which is down to money. microsoft say shake that booty and I.W./Activison say $5 please sir Piracy has been rife on pretty much all systems, and lets face it you can get a knock off xbox/wii game as easy as a pc one, and just look at how bad DS and PsP piracy was/is. But please stop the borish argument that is all Pc gamers are guilty of piracy by default
I don't own a console, so at this time I have no plans to purchase any Rockstar games. I don't need to buy a year old Gay Tony or Chinatown addon either. Ya the money is there for faster return on investment and all systems have been hacked and booleged because... the money is there too. :-)
Rockstar doesn't like putting out their games on the PC because of piracy and Q&A, and the GTAIV PC port was poorly optimized, they really put out a shoddy product there not cool.
it does not go to pc right away is freaking simple... the crappy...barley hd version (720p or less) with no anti aliasing and long a$$ load times sells for $60 The much better...full HD (1080p or higher, 1600p, 1440p) with up to 32x anti aliasing...quick load times , full mod support sells for $10 dollars less Do the math They have to wait to bring it to PC. Don't you realize they NEVER port games to PC.... They were freaking DEVELOPED on a PC and PORTED to those consoles.
Rockstar Toronto has a job listing for DX11 programming, that is either RDR or MP3, but hopefully both, if it's not announced sometime this fall I guess I'll just pick it up for my PS3, but I'd love to have it on the rig.
Rockstar using DX11? You'll need a 12-core to pull more than 30fps no doubt.
that made me laugh damn truth
What morons played GTA4 PC using a keyboard? Anyway I hope RDR comes to the PC as a two for one seeing how Red Dead Revolver didn't get ported over. GTA4 was ported horribly but it was still fun (nowhere near as fun as San Andreas was) and the MODS for it were awesome. If RDR is ported to PC I'm sure I'll be riding horse back through the old west doing drive by's with an assault rifle, M4 baby. You can use controllers on PC's for those who don't realize this.
Of course it is actually a PC tittle. But piracy sucks! No matter what they do. But it will come on PC now and then.
Yes, please! Please give us a crappy-ass console port version of Red Dead Redemption on the PC, please!
