GTA V soon to be confirmed for PC?

Apparently you can pre-order it from Amazon Germany (PC) as well as on Gamesonly.at.

Stores with the PC version. They know something we don't?

http://www.amazon.de/Rockstar-Games-Grand-Theft-Auto/dp/B0071L2QD0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1367855238&sr=8-2&keywords=grand+theft+auto+v

Additionally, a special edition was briefly detailed on GamesOnly that was said to contain the following (now removed entirely):

SteelBook with exclusive artwork

World map

Stunt-planes challenges

Online-store concessions

Bonus outfits

Bonus tattoos

Special abilities booster

Exclusive weapons

they would never announce the release date of the PC version before the console one comes out.

Been waiting to use this legendary picture since I started posting a while ago!

I hope that's true duder, I'm a PC player and I love Grand Theft Auto real much.

A PC version is an inevitability, but I always have my doubts with these retailer "leaks". I always wonder if someone just messed up posting the correct platforms for the games they are allowing pre-orders for.

#5 Edited by Pr1mus (3875 posts) -

PC versions of past GTA games have always come out 6 or 7 months after the console version. I'm sure the same will happen again. Red Dead Redemption is the exception and not the rule when it comes to Rockstar not releasing PC versions. Also through patches they improved IV to make it decent on PC and truly figured out the engine on PC with Max Payne 3 so i'm not concerned about the quality.

I'm just happy to see it for PC on an Amazon page confirming that I will at some point be able to play it on PC. I was actually doubting it as I'd imagine it was reserved for current and the coming consoles.

CVG has a fresh story on it now:

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/404630/gta-v-listed-for-pc-on-retail-sites/

"No release date is offered, but the listings suggest that Rockstar may stick with its historical trend of releasing a PC version of its GTA games in the several months following a console debut."

If this is real, I wonder if the retailers would have the knowledge of the game using GFWL. None of the retail pages list GFWL, which would be great if all of this is accurate.

Let me guess. You're not happy about it? You're indifferent about it? You're happy its coming for all platforms? What? You're shocked? OK.

If it was day-and-date, that would make my life way easier. Schlepping my 360 and TV up to college is gonna be a pain in the ass.

Whats the word on next gen versions? A possibility?

Where's my fucking Red Dead PC port you bastards

#13 Posted by Funkydupe (3311 posts) -

@euandewar: I hope to see it on the new consoles as well.

Man, I'm getting it on current consoles, the next gen ones and the PC. :) Cover all the bases.

Still waiting on that one that got away...

I really hope this is true at release... I'm double dipping if its not. I don't really feel bad though to me Rockstar deserves it.

With Max Payne 3 they switched to their own platform with the Rockstar Social Club for achievements and multiplayer and also Steam at the same time for achievements.

Yeah it wouldn't use GFWL. They said explicitly GTA V will use Rockstar Social Club.

There will of course be one, almost every Rockstar game has made it onto PC (sorry RDR) the only thing I hope for is that it is well optimised, GTA 4 on normal ran like absolute shit on my new computer, which can play Max Payne 3 on Ultra with 60 FPS.

If I had to guess I'd say the PC version will not be released until 8 - 12 months after console release.

We will get a 360/PS3 release first.

Then a PS4/720 GOTY edition. Possibly that will have a window of exclusivity or it'll hit PC simultaneously.

They are saying that they are just focusing on current platforms right now. The crew talks about it a bit in the GTA talk video.

Fuck Rockstar for this. I thought we were past this Console/PC stuff. No reason to not have them all available to release at once.

quit whining you will get it in 2014 sometime

#24 Posted by Arouga (66 posts) -

Well... i mean if you look at pretty much all the footage it's pretty safe to say its from the pc. NOT hating on consoles. But i mean, take a look at them again, They're abit too good looking to be only on 360 and ps3.

No surprises here.

I wouldn't say that confirms anything. It could've just been that somebody clicked the wrong box on the site when adding/updating something.

(that's not to say that I think they'll skip a PC release, just that an online retailer listing is FAR from confirmation)

#27 Edited by Funkydupe (3311 posts) -

Well, the PC version is still there on both of those sites + it is on the French and UK (latter is notify of availability only) editions of Amazon as well. Sure, stores often put in place-holder release dates, but I haven't seen Amazon display versions of games that do not exist before.

#28 Edited by TwoLines (2804 posts) -

I ain't paying full price for a year old game. If it does come out on a PC 8 months after the console version, I can wait 8 more to buy it for 20 bucks.

#29 Edited by JouselDelka (967 posts) -

I need that announcement.... I need it :(
