Man, you could sure use an AA mod. Try SMAA injector or sweetFX.


I think you missed the bit where I said what graphics card I am running wink.gif . The only "injection" my poor old GTX260 (old version) is capable of is a lethal injection. Not really a huge gamer anymore that is why I haven't upgraded in 5 years. I think this is the first time I have fired up GTA 4 in years.

So according to this link http://uk.linkedin.c...r?trk=pub-pbmap

Rockstar Leeds is INDEED working on GTA V. While no platform is announced, it is referable to the previous job listing where they stated they were looking for someone to help Rockstar Leeds to develop NEXT GEN PC games back in February 2012.


I think anyone with a level head would come to the conclusion there will be a PC version. You don't port a game engine to a platform and then only use that engine for 2 games (GTA 4 and Max Payne 3). When GTA 4 was doing the rounds there was real worry that the PC wouldn't get the game. A lot of that fear came down to the fact Rockstar were using a new engine. I think at the time most were doubtful that Rockstar would commit resources to port the game engine to the PC.

This time around things are different, they have the game engine "running" on the PC it will be far less work for Rockstar to port GTA 5 to the PC than it was to port GTA 4. Not to mention the fact that the PC version opens up the way to doing an Xbone and PS4 version. According to Mark Cerny (chief PS4 guru) porting stuff from the PC to PS4 takes only a matter of weeks instead of months, the architecture is THAT similar now.

If you are still asking yourself "will there be a PC version ?" then you are asking the wrong question. You should be asking yourself "when will there be a PC version ?".

Well to me It seems otherwise, GTA V trailer 1 got almost 35 million views. Maybe many people left the forums?

That is only half the story there were another 2 topics (which were closed due to them getting too big) before that 618 page final topic. It was good fun times, most of the regular posters in the original topic moved on. I still believe there is a market for GTA on the PC but each time Rockstar pulls this "delaying action" they lose more and more customers.

Rockstar really are damaging their franchises on the PC, maybe they feel it is worth it to damage their brand and image for a few "double dippers". I myself have not bought a Rockstar game since GTA 4. I skipped TLaD, TBoGT, LA Noire and Max Payne 3 and I will be skipping GTA 5 too.

YouTube wasn't as common as it is right now. I remember I was on TeamXBOX Forums when the first GTA IV trailer was revealed. When I was watching it, it was lagging like hell, R* servers crashed and so many other's servers crashed as well. The game was overhyped.

Simply cannot stand Rockstars attitude to PC gamers. I was all ready to buy TLaD and TBoGT when it was announced that they were delaying the PC version of the game for 2 weeks because Sony Europe was throwing a hissy fit about something in the PS3 version. Their excuse was that they wanted to be "fair" and they didn't think it was "fair" that PC gamers got TLaD and TBoGT before PS3 gamers.

Now I agree it isn't fair that some platforms get the game before other platforms. However Rockstars notion of "fairness" seems to be one way. It appears to be only "fair" when it might be detrimental to consoles. When it comes to the PC it is "up yours and suck it up princess". I don't have unlimited funds so when I do spend my money I make sure it is with developers that actually WANT my money and don't treat me like I am an "after thought".

Eh, you'll get used to it. I've been to so many gaming forums lately and almost everyone is talking about GTA V. The majority says they'll buy it for the PC even though it's not even announced yet. They've gone through all that sh*t just like you, but they're not upset about R* treating us like 2nd class.

R*'s just doing it for the money. Buy the Console Version first and then buy the PC Version. Been like that since III.

Hey CharmingCharlie , welcome back(If you were away from the forums that is). I remember you used to help a lot of PC folks when the crappy port of IV was released. BTW, the argument you made is really good. You're really strong willed. I myself won't be able to hold back and buy it when it when it comes out on PC. But I'll make sure there's a decent price drop before I buy it though.

You need strong will to stop yourself from buying GTA V biggrin.gif I couldn't do that. Maybe because I spent like 1000 hours playing GTA IV online with my friends. Damn good times. But yeah, how Rockstar threats PC players is really annoying...

And yet they made MP3 PC, which is probably the best performing PC game they ever made. And they put some serious effort in fighting multiplay cheaters on the PC. On top of that they patched the game with an ingame shop to buy DLC directly with a creditcard.

Seems like a lot of trouble for a small market. Unless they had GTA V PC in mind and were testing stuff.

I think Rockstar learned with their mistakes and this time things will be different, I mean Max payne 3 uses same engine as GTAV, engine that they tweaked, optimized and concluded being codded since the beginning for PC works great and they don't need to make up lame excuses like "this is a game for future PC's". Max Payne 3 was the prototype for GTA V on PC, reason why they need to deliver the console versions first before they announce a full optimized DX11 PC version and probably Next Gen consoles version. I understand Rockstar if they're doing it for that reason this time and a few weeks or 2 - 3 months of wait won't harm and it's their only way to squeeze much as they can from all platforms.

That's the power of downsampling, you can completely get rid of aliasing. It's not impossible.

First of all there have been several topics created discussing the PC version of the game, and I'm sure if you add them up they'd be a lot more than 600 pages.

Second, what about the petition to release the game to the PC platform, signed by 170,000+ "members of the internet"? Now I'm not completely sure about this, but 170,000 is greater than 12,000 or so, I guess that's more than enough in your logic.

Third, it's the sales that matters, not the number of posts about a possible PC version in the future on an internet forum.

Fourth, what about the R* Leeds employee's LinkedIn profile which has GTA V listed and in development since June of 2011? That's besides the evidence that strongly indicate that there is indeed a PC version in the works.

Rockstar weren't sure that RDR will be a success, I guess that's why they didn't port it, to port a game you need to start since it's development times, that's why R* didn't risk.

R* North is actually working on GTA V for actual consoles (PS3/Xbox360 version). This guy is working for R* Leeds, that is specialized in the production of game for handheld consoles. But R* Leeds has also developed PC version of L.A. Noire, so that's what make me think it'll happen the same thing with GTA V.
