Rockstar has just announced that Grand Theft Auto IV will be heading to the PC.
This is great news!
for droids like u, it is! (see my comment below)
will there be mod support? because the mods in GTA san andreas were just amazing, ray guns, portal guns, flying people etc.
meh better off waiting bout a year give the mod scene some time to work n the price should drop.
Next is Gears 2
They better fix the online on the consoles first. People at Baylor University cant connect in Multiplayer or other people besides my stupid friend.
My personal opinion but i think Halo3/Cod4 is ten times better than GTA4 online since it is not competitive and more for casual play with buddies. Try checking your college/university's internet connection, could be blocking ports to access gameplay.
I should tell my pc only friends that this game kinda blows. Well, I guess I was expecting too much of it and got disappointed.
the story mode is still a solid 30 hour experience, but the online IMO was WAY over-rated, i got to level 6, then i just got bored and went back to COD4
Well all I can say is "about time" Rockstar jeez took you guys long enough.
I agree with you there even though I don't think it took them any longer then with the GTA 3 games. I am happy enough that the PC version is confirmed and that we have a release date. It would be really sad if they decided not to go PC anymore for whatever reason!
GTA IV X360 FTW!
Online was awful. The single player was better but, and this may sound ludicrous but in my opinion its true, the repetitive gameplay got in the way of me enjoying the story and the cut-scenes.
Great news! I was not expecting this so quick. I had Christmas in mind at the _very_ earliest, so this is good news. I think it'll look seriously impressive on PC simply being able to ramp up the resolution will make it look amazing!
What's to prevent people from downloading the game and using the patches that allow ps3 and x360 control support on the PC, from just doing this to get the game. It's 100% cheaper. Something needs to be done about the state of piracy on PCs
The ability to play online and get achievements?
No way...I did not see this coming </end sarcasm> If you want the true HD experience, get the PC version :) (not bashing the consoles, just pointing out a fact)
It was expected.
GTA games take roughly six months to migrate from consoles to PC. Rockstar is going to make a lot of money off of this port. Apparently, the PC GTA: SA has already sold 2 million+ copies.
yes but san andreas was good gta4 is very poor in comparison
now pc gamers can admit that the game is awesome.
There are PC gamers who dont hate consuls (ME!). This game is awesome im gonna buy it for the PC because any game that has a port to the PC will be better on the PC because there are no limiting factors in PC gaming.
hmmm... i think they will realise it is not awesome
Wow it's about time that they did this. The people who made this game are going to get a lot of money out of this.
cant wait to see what kinds of mods the PC guys come up with
I guessed that GTA IV would arrive on the PC by October 2008. Eh, I was close enough. :P
i bought it and played for an hour let it sit in my house for a week and trade it in .
Crank up the draw distance and texture detail to the max!!!
Yeah now we can play this game in true high def.
Expected, especially after the previous III series did so well on the PC. Although I skipped out on SA for the PC, will look forward to picking this up amidst the sea of expected greatness to come to the PC this August/September/October.
Now all you droids finally have the opportunity to play the game in HD and with AA like the rest of us. Enjoy.
You are talking about HD with your sh1t DVD player and sh1t quality DVD ?? Get the fuk out of here before i fuk u up.. Get your facts right you dumb dikhead.
HahahahAHHahah., dumb n00b. your PS3rd-place version of GTA doesnt even run in HD. my 360 version does, and with AA. you sad lemming.
who would play this on the PC?
Another console game best played on the PC. To join the long list of Gears of War, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Assasin Creed and DMC 4, what the heck might as well throw Fallout 3 on to that despite it not technically being a console game. Gears of War 2 and Fable 2 will be along shortly.
Will be pirated and played betwixt scoundrels like me and my mates! yar Har! Seriously though, this game is balls. Not even worth pirating.
PS3 is the only platform capable of giving you the best experience ever of GTAIV! AHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHA Cry more bots!
After 700,000 copies of Assassin's Creed were pirated you have to wonder why anyone is releasing PC games to big box retail. This game should be at the top of the list for most wanted pirated PC game.
all the good games are on PC!
