Not reading too much into this, but I know some might enjoy it for dinner:

"We're really happy with how that turned out for the consoles, but we're even happier with what it's meant for the PC. We've closed the gap between console and PC release dates, which is something the community had been wanting us to do for a long time, and the PC version has been tested on a huge range of hardware."

As long as R* hasn't said an official word about GTAV, they all are nothing but bullsh*t.

But that is offical word? Game magazines usually don't post fake interviews.

It might, but since it doesn't specifically say V then it's rather speculation then important news. That's why I made a thread where all the not-so-important-articles go, so not to make hundreds of threads.

Most likely relevant in terms of this may be the future of Rockstar Games releasing their games on all platforms at once rather than have the typical x-month delay for GTA titles to debut on the PC.
I'm hoping this will apply to GTA V, I wouldn't mind attempting to max out my hardware.

Yes, and pretty much everything in the V forums is speculation.

Yes, exactly, I'm glad we still have some intelligence left arounds here.

We don't know any sh*t about GTA V.
GTAV and Max Pain 3 are both different games.

@Adriaan - It's not my rules. It's the admins who decides which threads get locked and buried away.

@Jacko - Probably less different then you think. Looks so from the trailer, multiplayer info we got, rage engine etc... but we will see.

Don't wanna seem a whining dick but day 1 PC release for MAX PAYNE is a MUST and they're talking about it like a huge achievement.

This is a great accomplishment for them. It seems the repercussions of their lack of attention to the PC platform have been felt, and they are trying to make up for it now. I am never one to complain for the movement towards equal support for all gaming platforms. rahkstar2.gif

But this really does belong in the Gaming Chat forum. I really wish I knew why people like to think there's only ONE section on this entire forum...

MP3 is not a console seller title, GTA is. It's an incredibly significant difference. Plus what street mix said.

Anyone here who thinks that PC release of GTA V will be the same day as console. I have only one word to say LOL. Rockstar would never release such a huge title on PC the same day maybe 1-2 months later.

And why is that? Because piracy? Oh please... XBOX version is always few days earlier available on TPB before release. So don't start with "It will get pirated" bullsh*t

And now because of ACTA bullsh*t, acces to TPB must be forbidden now so piracy bullsh*t is an absolute garbage and a lie.

yeah and R* is the company making them,this is about marketing and market options...not about game programing or anything like that,it goes for all games not separate ones only.

For smart people they will realize why this thread have a point, for console fan boy and not so smart people they won't see anything because it doesn't have a GTAV tag on it.

Anyway I think it is good to know this, and if they use same scheme with GTAV like they did with MP3 I'll be glad in every way, either the use of DX11 and other technologies taking advantage of latest PC's tech, and the same if they do it with release dates, if they do all that in GTAV as they did in MP3 I'll be more then happy, even if its for 2013 only.

And if you come with the BS of "it's only speculation" then the best thing to do is close GTAV section, because all is speculation other then the trailer footage and some of the words R* said related with the location and the MP crews, everything else is speculation or obvious things like "it will have cars" - duh.

Good article and definitely relevant. Anything Rockstar does is relevant to GTA V because the same technology and process and many of the same people are making, or making decisions about how to make GTA V.

Particularly, I'm intrigued by the claim that they didn't have a "lead platform" on MP3. So far, the Xbox 360 has been the lead platform for RAGE-based games because of the development history of RAGE beginning before the PS3 came out. It would be a major achievement if they finally have RAGE mature enough on all three platforms that they are truly developing in parallel rather than porting.

Interesting, imagine if GTA V has been developed in parallel on PS3/PC, would be great!

That's my hope after Max Payne 3. I really hope they will use this line of work from now on. They have enough experience with their engine now to take full advantage of the consoles and PC capabilities. Max Payne 3 is proof enough.
