Is there any reason to believe there won't be a PC version?

#4 Posted by MrKlorox (11185 posts) -

What part of "we're not talking about the possibility of a PC version right now in hopes of getting you to buy the console version as soon as it comes out" do people not understand? This is the same game they played when GTA4 was about to come out. Ah fuckit, I'll sign anyway.

I'm so used to the GTA games on console I am perfectly fine with having to wait or not even be expecting GTA V on PC.

#6 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4281 posts) -

They already said they are considering it, I'm expecting them to talk about it more fully once the console versions release.

Where's the petition to end petitions?

#9 Posted by iAmJohn (6091 posts) -

I'd like to request that we instant ban anyone who posts an online petition on this site. No warnings, just straight bans for being so fucking stupid.

#10 Edited by emem (1954 posts) -

I can't imagine that there won't be a PC version, it's just going to be late (again).

Why? What's wrong with petitions?

As I said to a friend of mine, I'd be on board with this petition if Rockstar didn't have a history of doing bad PC ports for their recent games.

Doesn't make much sense considering how amazing the PC version of Max Payne 3 was.

I think this is a petition for the inevitable. Can't we have a petition for not inlcuding GFWL and vomit inducing DRM?

Why would you buy an only game for a 7-8 Year OLD Console that is near as dead.

Fuck this. The piracy rate for PC games is so out of hand, that I could guarantee that the majority of petition signers would be doing so with no intention of actually paying for a copy (and yes, I know these metrics would be impossible to actually research).

Some people need some thing to hang onto.

I remember arguing with tons of crazy PC fundamentalists on that forum at this point in GTA4's release over my certainty that a port would come despite Rockstar not wanting to talk about it. Then the head paranoiac/troll, CharmingCharlie, became a moderator and I said F that place until the port came out and I started messing with modifications. I'm kinda surprised the petition thread wasn't his, even though the dude that did post it also has an Australian flag under his avatar.
#21 Posted by spiceninja (3052 posts) -

There doesn't been to be a petition. It'll come out on PC 6 months after the console release just like every other GTA game.

#22 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5120 posts) -

My dad is Rockstar and he said no PC, but a Mac version will come out a week before the console launch.

#23 Edited by faizanali (9 posts) -

@MrKlorox: How can you expect 10K+ Signatures on a small forum like this? No 'fense but we just don't have Enough GTA Fans over here.

The main point of our Petition is to collect as much as GTA Fans from all over the world, I myself come from Pakistan (Which may be a shocking news to any of you)

And then prove it to R* that we are sick of you throwing crap at us every GTA, Its always the same BS that Console Gamers get their game first and we get it later and still a crappy port, http://www.borderlands2.com/loveletter/?x That is why i love GearBox.

#24 Posted by Mr_Misery (244 posts) -

Reason #158376 why I hate the gaming community. I wish Rockstar and other devs would tell people to fuck off.

#25 Posted by Animasta (14460 posts) -

@faizanali: spoilers, your petition doesn't matter GTAV will come to PC anyway and it will be a crappy port like always

#26 Posted by BeachThunder (11257 posts) -

I want to see GTA V on Virtual Boy.

#27 Posted by faizanali (9 posts) -

@Animasta: Lets wait and see how crappy port it is, Since it supports DX11 I see no reason for it being made as a port at all, Are you even a PC Gamer?

The fact that it's being primarily developed for current gen consoles makes the PC version a port by definition. Secondly, the DX version that Windows currently supports has absolutely nothing to do with any of this. Thirdly, when a person's name is white, it usually means they have chosen to represent PC as their primary platform.

what does that even have to do with anything? Even if I wasn't a PC gamer I can still tell you that their ports haven't been great more than they have been.

What does DX11 support have to do with anything? Crysis 2 has DX11 support and it is a console port, so does Black Ops 2.
Rockstar has a history of shit ports, that's why people think this one will be.
#32 Posted by iceman228433 (496 posts) -

I would take Red Dead any day over GTA 5 on pc.

#33 Posted by YOU_DIED (695 posts) -

These petitions are usually there just to show the publishers that a market exists for the game, so I don't see anything wrong with it. That said, I'd much rather get a Red Dead port.

http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/11/19/gta-5-pc-version-merely-up-for-consideration-says-rockstars-dan-houser/

If I was a bigwig at Rockstar, seeing the comments on that article would be enough reason for me to scrap any plans for a PC version. Calling developers "cunts" for not holding to promises that they never even made and then basically stating full-out that they shall pirate the game if it comes out to "get even" is fucking childish.  
 
That said, I will be disappointed if a PC version doesn't see the light of day. I'm not looking forward to constantly swapping discs whenever I enter a different area of the map.

#36 Posted by CornBREDX (4454 posts) -

To be honest I think this has a better chance of being on PC because its developed by Rockstar and its late generation so I think this petition is unnecessary.  
We'll see, but that's my prediction. 
 
Wasn't Red Dead like LA Noire and developed by another team? I don't actually know. I was under the impression it was, though.

#37 Posted by faizanali (9 posts) -

@Animasta: You are wrong i have been a GTA Fan since Vice City i know that Vice City ran at a click of a button same with SA, But IV screwed it up, DX11 has a lot to do, If you still aren't sure then please do a search and don't take yourself as a bigger personality over me just because im not a usual here.

#38 Edited by faizanali (9 posts) -

@believer258

I am pretty sure it all happened with an update just like LA Noire, And sorry for double posting. :)

EDIT: I found it sir http://www.geeks3d.com/20110324/pc-version-of-crysis-2-is-a-console-port-and-nothing-more/

http://www.vg247.com/2011/03/29/crytek-stomps-on-rumors-of-a-dx11-patch-for-cyrsis-2/

And then vg247 posted the update.

(Wow this website is great all the concepts of gaming, Really whoever created this website deserves a medal^)

#39 Posted by Jimbo (9708 posts) -

I'd expect a delayed PC version. I know RDR didn't get a PC version, but GTA is a nailed-on zillion unit selling franchise like CoD. It just makes sense to plan on making it as widely available as possible. It also makes sense not to do so in any fashion which undermines the console launch though. GTA 4 PC wasn't announced until after the console release, iirc.

#40 Posted by Fjordson (2448 posts) -

Y'all are freaking out about nothing. Anyone who actually believes that GTA V won't be on PC sometime next year is a crazy person.

#41 Posted by Gruff182 (847 posts) -

It's pretty shitty, that this late in the cycle they're still pulling this move.

They should want to show off the best they can do, put out their best product. I don't want to play the next big game on a old-ass console, those things have been dead for a while now (to me).

It's obviously going to end up on PC but waiting more than a month is just dumb. I just wish this gen would end already, I'd happily play it on the next xbox or PS.

#42 Posted by BillyTheKid (484 posts) -

The only reason to look into a PC game for something like this is teh mods. And teh mods better be hella good. Still would love to see some RDR mods. OHHHH WAIT....

#43 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

I'm pretty sure it will eventually come to the PC, even if it isn't that good of a port.

#44 Posted by Rafaelfc (1281 posts) -

this petition just make me wish they NEVER make a PC version of it.

and I really love PC gaming, go figure

the ports STILL came like 6 months afterwards.

Also, SA was frame locked at 25 FPS (you could unlock it, of course, but still) and it had plenty of errors/glitches. and I'm going to guess that I've played a lot more of either game than you have.

Rockstar thinks PC gamers are entitled pirates with too high standards.

Lol what? GTAIV ran great.. it's the best looking version. You crazy fool. Well it ran great for me.. and the mods certainly helped making it look amazing.

But at the end of the day this is just a marketing tactic. It will come out, more of a when not if.
