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.

They've got every studio working on GTA V, the linkedin thing is not indicative of a PC version in any way. The PC version is a given though, they would have to be the stupidest company on the planet not to release GTA V on steam which has just as many active users as any given console (for the people who think PC crowd is small, it's actually bigger than any single console alone, with older and usually more mature crowd. I think that's because maturity usually comes with intelligence, and you can't be that intelligent if you buy already-outdated consoles to play mediocre games when the games worth playing all come to PC anyway with better graphics - "rdr didn't!" RDR wasn't very special. And was bugs and glitched out. And yea, just really wasn't that special of a game, it was pretty, it was open, but it wasn't really special like GTA or CoD or BF or Skyrim etc)

Not sure about every R* studio workin' on V. And RDR was really a great game, I think it's in the top 3 (or even 1st) of best games for actual consoles generation. I'm a PC gamer as well, but you don't need to insult RDR just to justify the fact it hasn't been released for PC. Just R* made a decision and this decision was to release the game only for consoles, who knows why. Maybe for testing fans reaction to this? Or more likely fore something else.
But I'm pretty sure it won't happen for GtaV, there are lots of reasons why it will come on PC. I'm hoping for a Christmas 2013 announcement along with a Spring 2014 release.

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

@CharmingCharlie

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

Some are not mine.


Wow.. just wow.. I knew PC was good but I honestly had no idea about these mods.

These are 2011 games. 2013 Games look like a generation ahead.

Not bad news, they "fixed" the date but they kept the section.

The date never made any sense to start with, no way Rockstar would release the game in the same day.

Honestly I don't care anymore if the game is coming to PC, I'm 100% sure it will, what I wanna know is when, my guess is 1-3 months after consoles but thats just because it makes more sense, but maybe they think otherwise.

A way or another we've been playing the waiting game since 2011 and there is nothing we can do to make it go faster.

Hmmm...

* PC = GTA1 + GTA London (if you consider this story a game itself) + GTA2 + GTA3 + GTAVC + GTASA + GTA4 + GTATLAD + GTATBOGT = 9 = 69% (LOLWUT?)
* Not on PC = GTAA + GTALCS + GTAVCS + GTACTW = 4 = 31%

Seems fair...

No one takes seriously "Liberty City Stories" or "Vice City Stories" or "Chinatown Wars".

No gives a f*ck about these additions.

It's different league, they are not comparable to main games

I only disagree with part of it. I don't have these ones, except GTACTW. But this doesn't mean they aren't part of the game timeline. If they were released for PC, I'd get them. But only because I don't have enough ability to shooting games on consoles (yes, I admit it).

Also don't forget that Rockstar gets some of these ideas for their next game from mods they see on their previous game. So they just simply add that in into their next game, such as the announced bullet time that was already done in GTA IV by HippieCommunist and others.

But really there will be a PC version, hopefully announced after 2 or 3 months after the console launch.

I wouldnt go that far, there certainatly would be allot of fans (Me included) that would be PISSED.

But having just released GTA V full stop, they would not be the most hated company for any time soon....

gta v will not be on pc i think.back in 2007 gta 4 pc got around 600 pages in this forum now we have only 88 pages for gta v pc.rockstar will see this and will think there are few pc gamers now as compared to before gta 4 release.

Your argument is incredibly flawed. The board statistics are broken and the user numbers don't indicate the exact numbers but there are around 500,000 members on this forum. That is just the tip of the iceberg compared to the tens of millions of customers who are going to purchase the game, no matter which platform. The question is not if it's going to happen but when. The PC platform is still profitable; in fact, it's currently rising! Let's take a look at some of Take-Two finance reports; we can figure out how much money they earn from the consoles, handhelds, PC and other platforms, in relation to each other.

If Rockstar works by any logic then they should have releases red dead redemption for pc.

The fact that Red Dead Redemption was developed by Rockstar San Diego, a studio that did not release a single title for PC for a whole decade, suggests why the game was never released for PC.

GTAV on the other hand, is developed by Rockstar North and the PC version is developed by Rockstar Toronto or Rockstar Leeds; it's most likely one of those two studios.

Rockstar themselves stated that they haven't used the full capabilities of the engine in GTAIV because they couldn't do it that early. IV was the second Rockstar title and first openworld game that used the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine, hence the terrible optimization. I'm sure that Rockstar Toronto learnt from their mistakes and it's not that unlikely that they will develope the PC version of GTAV. You have to consider one another thing; the Vancouver studio merged for the most part with the Toronto studio. As you might know, Max Payne 3 was developed by Rockstar Vancouver. Then again, Rockstar Leeds developed the PC version of L.A. Noire but they were also involved with Max Payne 3. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter that much, because V will be certainly better optimized than its predecessor, that's a given. If it equals L.A. Noire and MP3, then there's nothing to fear. I would say it will equal the latter one more as it uses the latest build of RAGE while LAN uses a different engine.

LCS and VCS are AWESOME games COMPARIBLE to III, VC and SA and at some points are better then III and VC.

They're the same league as other III era games. There're 5 main games in III era, not 3.

Stop butthurting over no PC version and get PS2 or PS3.

CTW also nice game, better then 95% of "AAA" shooters and actions.

It's a "different league" because LCS and VCS were first made for PSP so they were made as portable games and they just ported them to PS2, and CTW was a DS game ported over to PSP and phones.

Why don't you console selfish pricks stop coming to the PC threads or why don't you stop talking BS against PC's once and for all?

You're talking about those versions like they weren't created exclusively and specifically for those consoles, like they weren't projects paid to hit those devices only. Take the example of China Town Wars, the game was released for PSP and Nintendo DS and now to portable devices, although PS2, PS3 or any of the XBOX's got it. Why? because they were created just for those.

The episodes were paid too, the same reason why lately you see lots of XBOX players complaining with Rockstar why they are releasing the GTA games in Sony Network but not for Live. The reason is the same.

RDR didn't get released because R* San Diego doesn't create PC games since Midnight Club 2 and if Rockstar wasted time porting RDR to PC with the knowledge they had back then the game would end up being the same mess GTA IV was, and even that way the game sold extremely well taking into account that you needed a top of the line PC and 8 patches to make it less annoying to play.

Thats why and after the success Max Payne 3 was in technical terms, that they will do the same with GTA V and if the PC version is a proper version a next gen port is inevitable, like it or not. Oh just one last thing, Max Payne 3 also sold very well, at least in the digital market where the numbers are hardly revealed, but remember that Max Payne was also harmed because many people were hyped for GTA V and when Rockstar gave them Max Payne 3, they skipped it, I know quite a few actually and "punished" Rockstar for their stunt by using that game to drag attention to their Newswire, I bet Rockstar made a good amount with the daily visits in their website since 2011.

And if Rockstar is smart enough all they have to do is create a great Multiplayer experience with GTA5 on PC, that will make a lot of people buy it just for it, because differently from consoles, MP doesn't work in MP with pirated copies,.

Why don't you console selfish pricks stop coming to the PC threads or why don't you stop talking BS against PC's once and for all?

You're talking about those versions like they weren't created exclusively and specifically for those consoles, like they weren't projects paid to hit those devices only. Take the example of China Town Wars, the game was released for PSP and Nintendo DS and now to portable devices, although PS2, PS3 or any of the XBOX's got it. Why? because they were created just for those.

The episodes were paid too, the same reason why lately you see lots of XBOX players complaining with Rockstar why they are releasing the GTA games in Sony Network but not for Live. The reason is the same.

RDR didn't get released because R* San Diego doesn't create PC games since Midnight Club 2 and if Rockstar wasted time porting RDR to PC with the knowledge they had back then the game would end up being the same mess GTA IV was, and even that way the game sold extremely well taking into account that you needed a top of the line PC and 8 patches to make it less annoying to play.

By the way, I think there is no valid argument why GTA V shouldn't be released on PC. I hate when people come here and talk sh*t like "You PC users didn't get RDR PC version released so that's why you won't get GTA V" etc. Seriously people, shut the f*ck up if You have nothing more to say. This is not an argument, like S1LV3R_W0LF said. Rockstar can make a huge profit from PC versions just because of Steam. With Steam people will buy games even after few years after that game release day. And if multiplayer is going to be really good, like Rockstar said, then trust me ---- Rockstar will get huge profit from PC users.

PS. Nice comment as always, W0LF.

console fanboys please get out, you people are the ones who made console gamers look bad, this is a PC thread not a console only thread.. All your statements doesn't make sense at all, GTA V will be released on PC, that's very likely to happen.

I don't understand why some console players don't won't it to be released on the PC. Are they jealous, because of the superior hardware they can't afford? I do own a PS3, but I would rather get GTA V for PC, mostly because of the framerate and mods.
