So...it is officially the 2nd/3rd like I said when the thread started. While Amazon's (US) dates can certainly be wrong, when we get a late change near the release (about a month away), I knew it was legit. Plus, R* is certainly not known for good communication with the public and its many fans (especially, with PC gamers). That's why it took them so long to get the word out. I liken it to "pulling teeth". I trust Amazon more than R* itself and that's sad.

Luckily, European and world-wide GTA fans will only have to wait an extra day now, rather than 3. Cheer up.

On another note...
If this port is truly several notches above those of past GTAs, I will speak up about it. But, I guarantee it will be measured, meaning I'm not going to rave on and on like a console fanchild how it's the best the since sliced bread, when it truly is not. I also will not put down those who have legitimate issues with it. I hope the rest of us can keep our opinions in perspective and keep an eye on the "big picture", because the ultimate goal is to see the best possible future GTAs.

As far as bonus features, I haven't heard of any THAT unexpected or THAT mind-blowing. I'm talking about the kind of features that really tell PC gamers that R* wants to "turn a new leaf" and treat PC gamers with the same level of respect as console gamers (that's sad to even to think about...playing second fiddle to the console crowd) - respect we deserve. If R* really wants to make a statement, they can use the PC as the LEAD platform. If you want R* ratchet up the quality of GTA, you want this too.

I'm eager to see if this GTA makes a break from past GTAs in terms of graphics/performance. A small step in the right direction for PC gamers is a big step forward in my book and it will keep the PC community optimistic. There is a lot of room for improvement on R*'s part on the PC front. Will they take that BIG step forward that can really propel the GTA franchise (PC lead platform)? Will they be more supportive of PC gamers and the modding community? Will they cease with the PC launch delays? There's so much opportunity here.

R*...don't spoil it. YOU hold the keys by now. You DO NOT need MS/Sony dictating the terms of your games. Stand up and grow a pair (with all due respect).

Sorry for the long post.

It's not a huge delay just a couple of weeks or less.

I'm in no hurry and just grateful I have a PC to play the game at long last.

Ive noticed many people here are trying to find the positives here... there are none and stop fooling yourself. This has gotten out of hand why is R* constantly making the PC the worst gaming outlet, its treating it like a burden. If your gonna tell us Nov 21st/18th then stick with it! If you wanted to make us wait more then tell us that it indeed will be Dec 2/3 so not to get flooded with hate mail from the intelligent people who can run a PC. Why do they have to make things better for the inept console playing market when were starving for 7 god damn months. I would take the game with the graphic updates and no editor now rather than wait till god damn december just so i can make a 30 second movie. R* have been dumping crap on the PC for so long and they shouldnt make another delay or they'll lose some PC playing fans...

I hope they actually mean that VERY SOON.

The "info on coming weeks" promised when IV PC was announced became coming months.

Since Amazon has had this info for a month and R* just announced it, it appears Amazon is a better official source.

The fact Amazon sent mails to their users/buyers about the release date being changed was a good source by itself. Otherwise, Amazon and R* both are sh*tty sources.

Yeah, I'm now afraid that they may be right for the vista thing too.

1GB of RAM is MINIMUM if you want to run GTA IV at more or less good framerates on very low details.

Your GPU is very old, I would advise upgrading to HD4870 if you have the money, but good GeForce 9600 would do too.

And I'm not too good in AMD's CPUs, so I can't recommend anything to you at the moment, but I'll do some research.

There is no way you can play GTA IV on that system unless you upgrade CPU, GPU and RAM, which would also mean a new motherboard. That system must be around four years old! wow.gif

This is funny because a lot of people will claim GTA isn't a PC anymore.

But seriously, you can get a PC which will give you good performance (a lot better then consoles did) for something like 600$ US (again, depending on your location).
