Has anyone downloaded and installed SteamOS yet?

 

It's not dualboot friendly and it deletes windows no matter what you do, so i don't think many people will be using it unless they make a dedicated PC. (It uses UEFI booting).

 

No windows means no SteamOS for me and a lot of other people. I understand that Valve wanted to do their own brand with the Linux system but they should still have given us a choice .

What? Which OS doesn't delete previous OS? Dual boot is using two disk or two partitions on same PC, not two f*cking OS on same partitions.
And remember this is beta.

 

Wrong. Using Dual Boot, is have 2 OS, each one in a partition of the same HD, or in different HD's.

That's what i mean, people have reported that they need to unplug the hard drive that has windows to avoid SteamOS from --somehow-- deleting it. :/

GTA V PC announcement in less than 2 weeks?

GTA IV console release date: April 28, 2008.
GTA IV PC announcement date: August 6, 2008.
Difference: 3 months and 8 days.

GTA V console release date: September 17, 2013.
September 17, 2013 + 3 months and 8 days = December 25, 2013.

Coincidence? I think not.

why would they release the game for consoles that only around 5 million people have (and probably like 2/3 of which already bought this game for their X360/PS3) instead of releasing it for PC who have a much larger amount of people who will buy the game? it doesn't make sense. I think that most chances are that they release it this month then any other month.

 to happen (fingers crossed for this tuesday).

 

 

youre assuming the ps4/xb1 player base wont exponentially grow by the time we reach march or april mate...ps4 & xb1 just had the largest console launch in history...both consoles are projected to more than double their player bases by the end of quarter 1 2014...meaning ps4/xb1 will combine for near or over a 10 million player base by that time...thats a very substantial player base....& of course it will only continue to grow exponentially as time goes on....& the propsect of many of those millions double-dipping on the game is very real...especially if the nextgen version provides a substantial visual leap (which it will) among other improvements & new additions...

 

its coming to the nextgen consoles mate....money is a priority for rock*....its quite clear that gtaonline is designed for nextgen...the cloud system...the overall struture...it has all the hallmarks of nextgen....& nextgen will allow them to expand gta online in new ways that the last gen could never have.....we have evidence of the game coming to the new consoles in a dedicated...physical form...not gaikai or through psn or xl ...

 

BjqvOMA.png

 

"NG" = nextgen

 

orbis.png

 

 

& "orbis"...the placeholder found in the developer code....placeholder because its quite apparent the nextgen version development didnt actually exist yet at the time (mid september.....i dont think they began the porting process until sometime in mid/late october if this cv is anything to go by..which btw..was promptly removed within the hour after it began making rounds on the net......observe 

 

note the very specific use of words & term "version" which strongly implies this is not a new game but simply a re-worked version of a previous "famous ip"..

 

CV2.png

 

 

my educated guess is that the nextgen version is based on the pc version...will receive same or similar high quality assets...dx11...& all most of the eye candy that comes with the pc version will be on the nextgen version also..& is currently being ported as we speak....money is the name of the game here...& rock* knows what theyre doing the greedy f*cking pricks.....they knew that releasing the pc version in its own time window would not maximise their profits...while stalling the pc release while they port the game to the new consoles & eventually release both simultaneously would....so they go for the latter....mark my words & dont forget them...the pc & nextgen versions will launch together....the pc version will NOT be announced first...they will be announced together...& they will both be out at the same time before quarter 1 of 2014 is over.....(around late march according to one of my mates who knows & maintains contact with people at the rock* edinburgh studio)

 

& as for previous claims about rock* supposedly stating that they werent bringing the game to next gen consoles....HOGWASH...they NEVER said that. this a myth perpetuated by incompetent 'journalists' & people who lack rudimentary reading comprehension...in actuality..what rock* said was that they were not CURRENTLY working on a NEW gta game for the new consoles...which is true..theyre not...

 

& to address a similar claim that was made during the T2 quarterly earnings call in late october...lesie benz is on record responding to a question about gta v on next gen saying "we havent even discussed nextgen yet"...which again is in no way saying they dont have plans...its just a clever way to dodge a question & keep their work plans private....aside from the actual financial reports & details regarding some future projects...most of the rest is typical PR nonsense...rock* is a company that likes to keep their projects very secure & hidden from public until theyre ready to announce it themselves....so it follows that of course he would either play the dumb role or not comment on it...he chose to be dishonest & play the dumb role in this instance...not surprisingly

 

following all the evidence & leaks over the last few months with a decent amount of sleuthing will bring most to the conclusion that this is whats going on at the moment....it makes complete & perfect sense what rock* is doing right now....maybe not from a moral perspective...but definitely from a business perspective....im amazed that more people arent catching this...

.lol at all of the bloody morons commenting on this article posted on n4g.....the vast majority of gamers....console & pc alike...are completely oblivious to the hard evidence of the pc version that has been compiled over the last several months....rock* sure knows how to keep their fans in the dark...& in ignorance....the fact that so many still doubt it will be released for pc at this point is pitiful & painful to know....kudos to rock*...sadistic pricks

None of this seems like new information.  I expected that this would happen; that they would try to do an ultimate re-release of the game by announcing and then releasing it on all the next-gen platforms (X1/PS4/PC) simultaneously; it just seemed like too good of an opportunity for Rockstar, and it gives them quite a bit of time to work more on improving the game's graphics for their PC/NG buyers as a sideline activity to their general GTA Online updates that they keep boasting about to their hungry fans.

of course..its not new information...its basic information & a conclusion that anyone whos investigated all of the info over the last couple of months should have arrived to...

 

and it gives them quite a bit of time to work more on improving the game's graphics for their PC/NG buyers as a sideline activity to their general GTA Online updates that they keep boasting about to their hungry fans.

 

 

just remember...the pc build is the base for the nextgen versions....whatever graphical improvements the nextgen version receives will have been derived from the pc build which is where its being ported from...its not a simultaneous development going on... the pc build was being developed long before the nextgen consoles were even announced mate...but yea...its pretty easy to come to this conclusion once you study all of the evidence... 'hints'...& information thats come out in the last 2 months...but i still come across many who doubt that pc/ps4/xb1 releasing together so i wanted to address that

Yeah, man. I played a couple hours of the PS3 version earlier today and even on consoles the game can look very pretty. The lighting, the sky box, it all looks so nice. And this is coming from someone who is a die hard PC gamer and a major graphics whore. I can definitely see what looks like a toned down version of a graphically superior build (PC/NG). The PS3/360 version are essentially a gimped version, but it still looks and plays quite nicely.

Ofcourse It's just a coincidence. They never announce anything in holidays. Why would they follow pattern? Announcement dates are completely random every time.

IT WONT BE ANNOUNCED THIS YEAR.

God, why do people honestly hope they will do ANYTHING with the next gen version this year?! There's gonna be NOTHING. It's gonna be all new on GTA:O

 

Try and remember all the windows R* had to market GTA V when they were working on MP3. They kept marketing MP3 for months after it's release.

Give the f*ck up.

All facts point to a 2013 announcement. Also San Andreas was confirmed for IOS alongside the updates for GTA:O. Not to mention the DLC.

im guessing PC version anouncement will come feb 2014 . ive been waiting for this game for ever Still have not played it.

Nor will i till PC . Now Feb anouncement them April release sounds like the go.

 

Seen every mission played ,seems a bit boring tho still interested in playing it. Starting to realy lose hype over it all now.

GTA V seems to be 1 thing for me - Extremely good or something we didn'y realy want in a GTA game ,lose of missions not as many ,Special ability's ,Aliens Wepon wheel like wtf ? .

 

@ the end of the day i just hope When i get it the controls to play the game are still the same like GTA IV . so i can still embrace my controller ... :) :) :)

I always expect the PC version out for sale around six months after the console version. I was trying to hold out for the PC release, but it was on sale so I picked it up for 360.

I'm enjoying it, but I look forward to seeing a PC/next-gen version with higher quality graphics. Since I already have it now, I'll probably wait even longer after the PC release for a sale or price drop. By then, some good mods should be out too.
