Already love where this satire is headed - faux hippie iPhone users.

Someone has probably said this, but I think they will announce it for March, then push it back to May. Just like GTA IV, RDR, LA Noire, and Max Payne 3.

Patrick is right: People are still peeved about Red Dead Redemption not getting a PC release (myself included). However we did get one for L.A. Noire so I was happy about that.

I fully expect the PC version will come 6 months after the console versions. This has been the way of things for Grand Theft Auto since at least San Andreas. I don't like it, but that's the way Rockstar have chosen to roll.

I can only imagine that we'd be better informed about what this game is if Game Informer's shitty exclusivity deals didn't exist.

Posted by polarzombies

I hope that Rockstar implemented the animals from Red Dead into GTA V because I can't stop thinking of the idea of Hummer vs. Bear .

Absolutely not by this point. GI didn't dictate their marketing plan, it's simply a tool. They would be releasing info at the same time.

Anyways, couldn't be more excited

We don't talk about Rockstar PC ports until we finally get Red Dead.

Doubt we will. Apparently the game is such an insane coding mess that it would be easier to simply make a new game than make sense of its guts. Sure, it sounds like an excuse, but considering the game's complicated production and Rockstar's track record with leaving shit in the files, it's probably true.

You're not missing much. Just several hours of staring at a horse's ass and doing a few ten minute long missions.

Not missing much... more than the best game of the generation. Get a grip.

People who said GTA:IV sucks really need to die. I love GTA, and don't want to play it at a shit framerate at a low resolution with no draw distance. I want a PC version. Mods alone make the PC versions of previous GTA games better than their console counterparts IMO. Rockstar made a sloppy port of IV, but I have faith. Max Payne 3 was a great game great port.

We all adored GTA IV at the time, but over the years, it's the shit like all the dating simulation bullshit that really stuck with people. That alone has kept me from going back and playing GTA IV again (or playing the DLC for it, even though I've bought it . . . at least twice).

Most of the people complaining about the social aspect were too ignorant to put their phone on silent mode. Not exactly a valid complaint.

After how they treated the LA Noire PC release I think I'll be grabbing the console version. The LA Noire for PC had some graphical issues which really grated on my nerves. Not to mention GTA4 on the PC as well, which had it's set of issues.

As an aside, I really liked the dating/friendship stuff in GTA4. I thought it added some interesting stories. Especially Brucie, who just makes me laugh every time I play.

Wait, you can put your phone on silent mode? I need to try GTA IV again...

I'm sure we'll get a PC version at some point, it's just a matter of when and how good the port will actually be. Max Payne 3 had a great PC port so I have a little hope (not a lot though) that Rockstar will do a good job with GTA V. I still occasionally reinstall GTA IV on my PC and mess with mods. It'll be a tough wait, but I've been a PC gamer for a long time so I'm used to it. I just wish that they would confirm (or deny if that is actually the case) that there is a PC version.

Edited by FZackM

It's a shame they're not planning on doing a PC version already, I bet it'll come out about a year after the console versions.

I really hate how Rockstar treats PC gamers as second rate customers. I don't want to play GTAV on consoles with huge FPS dips and crappy controller stick aiming, IV was so much better on PC With 100+ FPS at all times and smooth aiming controls, not to mention mods.

I wish people would stop treating PC like it doesn't matter. At least the indie community is thriving on PC.

Yeah, the game tells you that within the first couple of minutes you acquire the phone. No one will bother you ever again. It's great when you want to do stunt jumps or track down pigeons or just mess around with no worries. Also, no relationship status will be affected when your phone is on silent mode.

I have no idea how I missed that. Thank you so much for enlightening me!

No surprise when its coming out. Look at all of their other games this generation. April/May releases. The real question is the PC[...]

Edited by MrKlorox

What do you mean "despite" the pattern of PC ports. This is absolutely the way they handled GTA4, They didn't even allude to a PC port existing until it was about to come out 6 months later. This is exactly how they do things.
 
However that won't stop everybody with the attention span of a goldfish from knee-jerking and posting empty threats. Crazy people did it last time. It'll happen next time too.

If they skip over the Pc I will skip over this game

Posted by Pezen

Why would there be a mirror in the middle of the beach? I am cautiously optimistic about this game, this better not be GTA IV all over again, probably my least favorite GTA to date.

Thank god they're actually saying something this time to help stop the imbeciles from making all the wrong assumptions. This all but confirms that there will be a PC version, so people threatening to quit playing Rockstar games, and whinging about how PC gamers are supposedly treated like second class citizens can shut the fuck up.

Yup. Gotta love the internet.

I swear, the PC version better be good. Max Payne 3 was awesome on PC so they really don't have an excuse (not like they had one with GTA 4 or LA Noire or the non-existent Red Dead for pc, but still.)

@xbob42 said:

Don't care about GTA anymore. IV was disappointing on an extraordinary level while Saints Row the Third not only rose to the challenge but soared above anything GTA had ever previously accomplished.

That's why I'm waiting to see what GTA V brings to the table. I agree GTA IV was flawed (especially the PC version) but I really want to see another GTA game that freaking blows me away like san andreas did.

Posted by mbr2

Spend 4 years making the same game as the last one and another six months for a PC version that's poorly optimized. Repeat. Welcome to Rockstar North.

@TheBioLover said:

Nice! As for no PC version...meh, who cares.

Millions of PC gamers. Even with how shitty GTA IV was on PC, the mod community was huge and created a lot of awesome stuff. The modding potential for GTA V is huge especially if the vanilla game is technically sound.

Posted by MrKlorox
@captain_clayman: I'd like to think that 4 years of PC hardware advancement would automatically make GTA5 a "better" port than GTA4. Unless you have the same CPU and RAM you had 4 years ago (like myself), then it'll probably run just as poorly as GTA4, if not worse.

how the hell are you getting 100+ fps at all times for GTA IV for PC?

There is something very creepy about that girl.

I think the dissonance comes from the fact that she's doing the "taking a picture in a mirror" pose... at the beach... to nobody. Doesn't make a lot of sense.

Another +1 for PC. I really don't want to play it on the Xboxen. Also, I sure hope Mike Toreno makes a comeback in 5.

Max Payne 3 being a linear level-based game might explain why it turned out well on the PC.

As I expected. Those hoping for a 2012 release obviously haven't paid attention to when R* releases their games lately.

Posted by Fezz

Glad to hear it

Posted by ThePantheon

As always, the PC release will follow approximately 6 months behind. Let's not report about this again, cheers.

Posted by hmmisee

I do agree about the Red Dead Redemption point, I wish they would bundle all the DLC, maybe enhance the graphics and release the game on steam. I'm sure the game would sell.

I'm pretty sure that's an artist rendition of Yvonne Strahovski. Dem eyes/cheekbones.

Uh what? No, it's not "as always". As stated in the post, Red Dead never even came to PC, which is the one game of theirs I actually really wanted on here.

Your smug attitude is hilarious, especially when you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

Posted by gizmo88

@Silentsnake510: GTA IV sold very well on the PC. I'm pretty sure they won't pass up the opportunity.

Posted by I_Stay_Puft

I'm really hoping Grand Theft Auto V just fuckin plagiarizes the entire storyline of Beverly Hills Cop. I'd kill for the main character to go, "A banana in my tail pipe."

shameless Apple product placement?

If you zoom, in, the apple logo has been replaced with... a bowl of fruit? Something tenuously fruity, anyway.

Seems strange to literally copy the iPhone design, though. Rockstar's brand of 'satire' has always been hit or miss.

(Coming from a huge GTA fan)

GTA has alwasy parodied Apple products with the "iFruit" thing...

@Xeirus: Max paine for PC came a week after the console, not months.

Posted by Demoskinos

I mean...I know GTA is a name that carries a lot of weight but still... I'm astounded at how many people are already sold on this game without knowing zilch about the actual game play elements.

She's holding that phone the wrong way to be taking a picture of herself.
