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

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.

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

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.

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

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).

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.

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.

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

@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.

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.

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.

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.

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/

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.

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.

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.

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....

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

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.

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.
