Posted 05 January 2013 - 05:52 AM Edited by S1LV3R_W0LF, 25 September 2013 - 11:58 PM.

Ok first of all I wanna make clear that I know there are some threads about GTAV PC, and also there was a lot of topics about rumors. But the purpose of my thread is not to talk about rumors or to talk about if there is or not a version or to be transformed in another useless debate/ flame war with consoles.

These are all facts, that I mentioned before but that people miss, because they hardly read the whole threads and this time I'll post all the sources of these informations, instead of just listing them. So I think once and for all I should make this thread that originated a few articles on the Internet on websites I didn't even knew with the list I made but that many people questioned because there were no facts to support it, ok here we go:




1 - Rockstar wrote on Steam News the in the exact same day it was announced to be out for consoles Spring 2013 (console games aren't announced there unless they are also planned for the PC platform):

th_RockstarSteam1_zpsbe701a5f.png

As you can see it wasn't a fake account like some first said, and they even replied to the users that most of the time said they were happy because was coming to PC, and things like that and Rockstar never said otherwise.

Later this sort of comments started to appear, so why would Rockstar pissing users so much? Either cofirm it or not, but not post information on a platform that "won't get a release":

th_RockstarSteam2_zps861e49b2.png

Oh and I did a search on Steam, and there were also published news from Rockstar on L.A. Noire, GTAIV, Max Payne 3 and others but not a single one on Red Dead Revolver.

2 - Rockstar made the mistake of including parts of their test files in a Social Club Update (that or some employee about to get fired did it), they made another update right after and removed the content and the folder labeled GTAV but tthey never gave any explanation:

____________________________________________________________________________________________________



3 - The leaks/ mistakes of well known websites like IGN, Gamespot, Amazon that listed the game for PC even after the platforms announcement. Some removed it others didn't, and let's be honest IGN was in R* HQ I'm sure they know a bit more then we do but the NDA/ Embargo would get them in trouble if they said something, they already got in trouble a few times for leaks like those:

4 - The 2 CV leaks from Rockstar employees that mentioned they were working in GTAV and was being developed for Xbox360, PS3 and PC:

http://www.gamefront...ops-in-october/


____________________________________________________________________________________________________


5 - The few messages sent to Rockstar support where people made technical questions about hardware and specifications with them answering as if they knew what the game will need for PC, when the normal answer would be "we don't have any information about that".


th_SLISupportTicket_zps50a9fd67.png


____________________________________________________________________________________________________


6 - The EB Games Store that had PC BOX (not the final cover) but same as the consoles but with the PC label on given by Rockstar for PC Pre-Orders (someone opened a R* box too soon I bet):

http://img.photobuck...zps9257c53e.jpg


____________________________________________________________________________________________________


7 - Store posters with GTAV artwork where you can read Xbox360/PS3 and PC.

They where the ones who posted it:

http://www.gamemania...88&gmgame=26695

Although the link that had the image is now dead and I don't know where I've put the image I downloaded back then:

http://www.rockstarb...to-v-pc-version

EDIT: The links are working again, and just by any case, I'm posting the screenshots of the website and the advertising ad of this Dutch & Belgium retailer, notice that it is set as "Hot Pre-Order" no one would do this if they weren't sure about it. Also notice that the Box Art is exactly the same of EB Games and it's not GAMES FOR WINDOWS LIVE like many claim, it's GAMES FOR WINDOWS, which is a common label for all PC Games with support for Xbox360 controller (this must be the common artwork box given by Rockstar too retailers for PC till they get the final one out):

8 - Some interventions in this same website few years ago, where Rockstar Toronto stated that they would treat the PC platform differently with next GTA and they would unleash the real capabilities of the engine that was still "too young" and they were just learning how to handle it properly.

I can't find where exactly that is, If I remember right was when they posted the first information about the coming Patch and everyone asked why no DX10 and other technical questions, but I'll leave their profile here, in case someone wanna look for it in GTAIV PC Section:

http://www.gtaforums...showuser=352152


____________________________________________________________________________________________________


9 - There was also the leak of information of a guy in this same forum, that he said he worked for Rockstar and he knew the game was too be released back in 2010 the first time, then 2011, 2012 and then was changed again, he stated the game was being developed for consoles and PC and he gave links to some "Inside" posts mentioning GTAV and even that Rockstar had a plan for a GTA kind of Game for online, like APB.

He also mentioned some interesting facts, like the game would have 3 characters, Albert, Franklin and Trevor, the funny thing is that he mentioned this months ago, before we even knew of the existence of 3 characters (clearly the first information of a character named Alberto da Silva was real and maybe that caused a delay in the game release, because was changed to Michael), he also mentioned about the size of the map that was the same said by GameInformer and few other things, unfortunately the link was deleted or something by the Admins of this forum (that have ties with Rockstar, at least one of the Admins does), but I'm sure a lot of people had the chance to see that and maybe downloaded the pics or took screens?

The link was this and was pointed out by a member named sats:

http://www.gtaforums...sult_type=posts

EDIT: Found the images I had stored in my HDD (maybe they'll get deleted again, specially if they are "too hot"):

The post with the information leak about the 3 characters with accurate names, except for Albert that later was replaced with Michael (message posted in March 2012 before we even knew about multi characters):

th_RockstarNorthLeakInfo_zpsaba7e1e6.png

One of the images he posted to prove he was part of Rockstar and the game was originally planned to be released in 2010, like the first rumors said and also you can see and as he stated in another thread I didn't took a screenshot it was being developed to PC since the beginning, what indicates that most likely won't be another port:

th_T2Rockstar_zps0d0ef6b4.jpg


____________________________________________________________________________________________________


10 -Rockstar said that the Crews in Max Payne 3 could be used for GTAV, so it wouldn't be fair or made any sense if they said this and the PC players that bought the game expecting to have their friends in their crews for GTA V, be left out.


____________________________________________________________________________________________________


Reason why it wasn't announced yet, my guess is that Rockstar want to milk consoles first specially being this the last year of their "life" at least as the top in the market. And since there was no rumors of any agreements with SONY or Microsoft like there was with GTAIV, and specially because right after GTAIV was released both SONY and MICROSOFT said they wouldn't pay for exclusivity again because they didnt reach their objectives (sell more consoles), it's possible that the PC version is released weeks or 1 or 2 months after the consoles, maybe same like was done with Max Payne 3.


And thats it, not trying to ruin Rockstar plans or anything like it, just stating some facts to give hope to some desperate players that are waiting for the confirmation of Rockstar, specially after reading that "up for consideration article", but the fact is that there was a misinterpretation of it, the question was made for other versions including PC and Wii U and the answer was all is up for consideration, maybe if the question was directed for PC version only, the answer would be different.

I think I'm forgetting something but it's late here and I can't think right, but I'll update this when I remember or I get something more to be added.

Since then a lot of new other indications/ leaks surfaced strengthening these early assumptions, so I'll add them here too. On a side note, not all of them are my personal findings, they are a compilation of all the information provided by many other users in these forums, so the credit goes to each one of them too.

11 - AMAZON.FR made the PC version of GTA V PC available for Pre-Order:

http://www.amazon.fr...e=as2&tag=g5-21

Many people could think this is just a place holder, but this particular division of the giant Amazon was responsible for a lot of other leaks of software and even hardware way before it was officially announced:

http://news.cheatcc....46#.UYrjF8rI_Aw

http://uk.ign.com/ar...premium-edition

http://www.pcworld.c...s-8-tablet.html

http://www.videogame..._by_amazon.html

http://wegotthiscove...ly-blacklisted/

http://gamerant.com/...ne-trilogy-ps3/

http://www.1up.com/n...r-hero-warriors

A few months after Amazon.FR, other country devisions of Amazon did the same, Germany, UK and Italy:

http://www.amazon.de...58879684&sr=8-2

http://www.amazon.co...58878938&sr=8-9

http://www.amazon.it...&sr=1-3-catcorr

Another interesting thing about this, is the fact that this product already got a "Serial Number", which means it's already in the Company Database, if you search by those numbers you achieve this particular product (in FR for example it's ASIN: B006ISA6VQ).
Also we should use some logic here, why would such well known, respected and influential Company, create a pre-order for a product that they aren't sure that it exists? GTA IV didn't have such an early pre-order before an official announcement and RDR never had a PC version to pre-order either.

Business wise, Take 2 Interactive gave the information to some of the most important retailers and business partners that matter under an embargo, but maybe because so many Companies broke it, they all decided to do the same. Either that or it's some strategy from Rockstar to have the perception of the interest in the game by the number of pre-orders of something not official.

______________________________


12 - A big Romanian retailer also listed the game to pre-order, once again the same thing. We have a respected company "risking" their good name for a title that "doesn't exist". Such tactic doesn't even make sense if it's just a place-holder or lucky guess. By creating such a pre-order for a desired product that people blindly pre-order and at the end not being true, they get nothing with that other then bad publicity:

http://www.emag.ro/j...c/pd/EC94KBBBM/

______________________________

13 - Another big German retailer made available to pre-order GTA V PC, but this time they labeled it "Uncut" version, and even state that by pre-ordering it they guarantee a 100% an uncut version, which is an interesting thing to see. They actually present knowledge of the existence of a particular PC version, which means it's not a place holder but a known fact:

http://www.gamesonly...n__PC_4715.html

But this is not all, the same website at the same time also made available for pre-order a GTA V S.E with the list of items that such version would include, such as: SteelBook with exclusive artwork, World map Blueprint, Stunt-planes challenges, Online-store concessions, Bonus outfits, Bonus tattoos, Special abilities booster, Exclusive weapons.

This created different reactions, but the most common within the GTA community was that it had to be fake, because not only Rockstar never announced S.E versions so soon and wouldn't make such a version with such items.

The fact is, that some weeks later of this happening and with the product being removed after this was found out, Rockstar announced this exact S.E. version with these exact items, which strengthens more the fact that this Company had privileged information of this version and most likely of the PC uncut version too.

_______________________________

14 - And another known German retailer, pre-order with price:

http://www.saturn.de...id=23&et_cid=16

15 - Near the E3 expo of 2013, one of the branches of the organization named E3 Insider when presenting the GTA V publisher Take-Two Interactive, they wrote in the platforms Xbox360, PS3 but also PC:

http://oi42.tinypic.com/2r29boh.jpg

This is a bit strange, because this information comes from the companies themselves and why would they place such information if it wasn't true? Maybe there was so bad communication between T2 and R* and one wanted to announce the game but the other didn't? The fact is, not so long of this being spotted the whole T2 page was changed and references to GTA V and PC were gone. This alongside all the CV leaks with references to PC and later being discarded as typos doesn't seem to be an excuse after a while.

______________________________

16 - A few respected and known websites published Steam Keys for GTA V PC, and it wouldn't be the first time that they ended up revealing unannounced titles this way:

https://www.g2play.n...-Steam-Key.html

http://www.prepaidga...5-steam-cd-key/

http://www.simplycdk...nd Theft Auto V

Once again why would they do this for no reason?

_______________________________

17 - Rockstar Leeds looking for a Graphics Programmer to bring the latest titles to PC:

th_RLeeds_zpse8b6a7bc.jpg

This was removed right after it was spread all over the Internet, inflaming the talks about GTA V PC version.
Now this could mean a couple of things, in the first place it could mean that they need a new Graphics Programmer to replace the old one that left the team, was promoted or fired, or that they reached the point that they need new people to keep with the game development.

But there are some important details here, one of them is that they clearly state the words PC and Next Gen, which means they want to carry their "latest games" to PC and Next gen consoles, and this idea is strengthened with one of the requirements that mention the knowledge of DX9 and DX11, which is the capabilities of the current and the new generation/ PC.

The only latest Games that aren't in the PC yet is GTA V, RDR, The Warriors and MC3 LA aren't "latest" any longer and for sure the only game that can get DX11 treatment is GTA V. Although I don't think they are just starting to work on it now, early in January Rockstar was already looking for people to work on something related to this, and knowing that GTA V wasn't released yet didn't make much sense that they were looking for employees to start working in a new game engine for Next Gen games:

http://www.gameinfor...r-new-tech.aspx

http://www.nowgamer...._platforms.html

In other words I think this is another proof that confirms what I always said, that the PC version will get DX11 support taking the advantage of the knowledge they got with RAGE when they developed Max Payne 3, which points to the fact that GTA V got same treatment and has been in development alongside with consoles and that it will be ported for Next Gen consoles.

Now what is left to know is the "when".

_______________________________

18 - An interesting answer from Rockstar that is a strong fact that goes against all the pessimism from people that don't believe GTA V will reach the PC because of RDR, forgetting completely that after RDR the PC got all the titles and the latest one even got special treatment:

th_RAnswer_zpsc58800d6.png

Rockstar been hinting that they are focused on the current consoles version now, reason why they don't answer any PC related questions, exactly like they did with GTA IV, it has always been like this, it's strategic marketing to max out their sales, with people buying the game 2 or even 3 times when it reaches other platforms.

19 - Brady Games, Official Strategy Guide mentioning PC.

So few weeks after the announcement of the S.E. and C.E. versions of GTA V, I've decided to explore the retailers Rockstar Games website had and see IF I could find anything interesting, after all they had some partnership with them. So when I entered in GAMESTOP.com, I didn't find a PC version to pre-order but I found something quite interesting:

th_Gamestop_zpsf9b8f40f.png

This is a shot of a product in that page, the Official Strategy Guide for Grand Theft Auto V and if you pay attention you see their platforms and PC is one of them. Today I went there again and I couldn't find this product, or at least not with the same name, the name was changed and the product image updated, but the description is still the same:

http://smg.photobuck...1fdf0b.jpg.html

The important thing about this, is that this is a Brady Games product that isn't available in their own website yet:

http://img.photobuck...zps0edf9195.png

And if you pay attention every old guide they have there was published prior to the announcement of a PC version, and only say PS3 and XBOX360 as platforms. But this guide for some reason have the PC on it, and hardly this was a typo, this kind of information is usually sent by the company selling the product, in this case BradyGames sent the information to Gamestop that copy-pasted it. So this could mean that BradyGames the company that is aware of the game, map and everything in it in order to create the guides, also know about the existence of a PC version, finished or not.

20 -  NVIDIA made the mistake of mentioning GTA V PC for the end of the year, then denies. After the slip of many retailers and big companies the giant NVIDIA made this "mistake" of announcing a title that isn't known officially to be one of the most awaited games. let's use some common sense, this is like if they said "NVIDIA will enhance the experience in the awaited RDR". It makes no sense in order to say something like this they had to have knowledge of the alignment of games expected for that season, Watch Dogs is confirmed, AC IV too, GTA V most likely is expected but not to the public yet, so after that they had to say it was a mistake:

http://www.bit-tech..../nvidia-gta-5/1

_______________________________

21 - XBOX 360 code leaked before the release allegedly includes code for PC and ORBIS (the O.S. form Playstation 4), if this is true it's a sign that the PC version is being worked out alongside consoles, like Max Payne 3 was and the lines for ORBIS indicate that possibly it is being ported for Next Gen too:

http://www.reddit.co...by_4chan_there/

Its not clear yet if this is real or was made up, but according to whoever did it it is. You can also follow these steps to verify it:
 

  • Enable KDNet on the kit (xbsetcfg.exe /kdnet set ip=<PC IP address> port=50000)
  • Open windbg on your PC (windbg /k net:port=50000)
  • Restart the kit, wait for it to connect to windbg on the PC and then run GTAV
  • Press ctrl + pause break to break into the game (pauses it for debug commands)
  • Type !dump C:\dump.bin
  • Wait for it to finish dumping and search dump.bin for fwAllConfigs
If this is true it makes perfect sense, to release GTA V PC alongside Next Gen as a title launch to increase the sales of the new consoles that already broke a record in terms of pre-orders with over 1.5 million and growing.

This could also explain this "tweet mistake" from SONY UK:

http://www.gameinfor...a-v-on-ps4.aspx

It's hard to believe someone in such an important position and projection would make a mistake like this, it is like if they were writing the official price of launch of PS4 and wrote a 2 instead of a 3 and say "PS4 will be out in November for $299", mistakes like this can't happen. So was either a test to see the reaction or something they made wrong and against their agreement with Rockstar. In the last months a lot of retailers are making "mistakes" like these, it's like they are teasing to see the reactions.
_______________________________

22 - Another Polish retailer with the game available for Pre-order includes a release date (29 November 2013), while this is not indicative of the actual release date it's a hint of the possible release window expected, which makes sense with every hint from the claims, retailers and steam keys. 

http://www.3kropki.p...uto_v_gta_5.php

th_Polishretailer_zps42324808.jpg

And as pointed out by a user of this forum, the source for the first posters with a release date to Spring 2013 were leaked by a Polish retailer.
_______________________________

23 - The recently released application iFruit to V from Rockstar Games contain a lot of files related to PC, which like the leftover code for V released by mistake in Rockstar Social Club indicates the integration of the PC platform:

24 - Within the official Social Club website from RockstarGames for GTAV it was found the Social Club PC platform logo, which means the site is ready to handle the PC platform within the files:

th_GTAVPlatformSwitcher_zpsecdeeb22.png

_______________________________

25 - New code found in PS3 game files has lines about PC version bug reports with date from 2012, with features of DX11 and the use of X64 architecture something not present in current gen consoles, indicating not only an optimized version but also an independent development side by side with consoles matching the same scheme of Max Payne 3 development:

_______________________________

26 - A few users contacted G2Play (mentioned in point 16, selling Steam Keys for GTA V) about how accurate their information was about the existence of the title for PC, and their answer was that it came from their supplier and hardly it would lie to them about the existence of a product even of not announced yet:

th_G2PlayTicket2_zps7ee8e76f.jpg

th_G2PlayTicket3_zps9ab7619a.jpg

_______________________________

27 - Rockstar support changed their answer to messages asking for GTA V PC information, instead of saying they are currently focused on current gen versions without any information about a possible PC version or ignoring the message completely, they say they are pleased that people demonstrate interest in the game for that platform and to keep track of Newswire for more info. Which means there will be news soon about the PC version, otherwise they wouldn't tell people to keep their eye on Newswire just to read an announcement denying the existence of a product that doesn't exist:

Example of a ticket answer before:

th_RockstarTicketBefore_zpscc6d6a64.png

Example of a ticket answer now that the current gen consoles version was released:

th_RockstarTicketNow_zps4f18b2b5.png

____________________________________________________________

And thats it. I'd like to leave one last thing and I hope all those concerns about the game because of what happened with RDR end once and for all.

Rockstar reacted in a different way when they were asked by RDR for PC, they always said they had no plans for it, they stated NO, when asked, they didn't use the statements that they usually do when asked about GTA V PC, like "it's up for consideration", "we're focused on the current consoles", "we have no info at this time", they don't deny it, because if they did they would be lying, but with RDR they always said a clear No and they explained it why plenty of times, they needed more experience with RAGE, which they now have.

But they also said this, about their interest and respect for the PC platform:

http://www.rockpaper...ints-to-no-rdr/

They expected that L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3 were enough to prove their commitment with the PC platform, but by the looks of it, people will only understand this when they see GTA V on PC.


EDIT: Added all the leaks/ hints about GTA V PC version since January 2013 (26 September).

Was there really in doubt that it was in the works/pretty close to being started? (Devlopment can mean pre-devlopment stuff in some cases, geting a team ready etc.)

Honestly GTAV like every other GTA before it will be on the PC, may come out at a later date (don't see why they don't do what they did with MP3 and devlop all three platforms at the same time no ports or anything, they could be though who knows), but it'll come really didn't think it warrented a topic, but none the less this was a good collection of infromation, and will hopefully erase the doubts of those who are thinking their won't be. So good work on finding the info and the sources to prove it S1LV3R_W0LF. icon14.gif

I thought everybody knows they will release a PC version eventually, it is really goddamn obvious, Rockstar isn't stupid, I don't think they want to lose potential millions of profit, they will release it 2-5 months after the console version, I'm sure. Console player here.

Well a lot have been saying it won't happen because of RDR, others lost hope because of the same thing, so here I am posting the facts that backup my claims.

If you go around on some other threads and see the amount of console players stating otherwise, I know some are just kids but still.

The real question is, will the PC version include the video editor? Just imagine how many awesome movies could be made with it. While it was incredible in GTA4, the downside was you were limited to just one city. With GTA5 there's animals, forests, deserts, mountains and underwater. The possibilities are endless!

No need for some bogus theory.. of course it's going to come out for PC you'd have to be mad to think otherwise.


I'm sure one of the main reasons is due to piracy issues. If they release for PC simultaneously next to consoles they will lose ALOT of money as opposed to forcing PC gamers to get it on console if they really want to play it at first.

They probably want to optimize it very well too, since the PC version will more than likely be the longest living version due to mods and whatnot.

6 and 7 are the same thing, Also those are just placeholders, doesn't prove anything.
3 you're using IGN as a thing to back something up. Fail.

Other then that pretty solid sh*t you got here.

You do know that Red Dead Redemption is a game that was developed by R* San Diego, a studio that haven't released a game on the PC platform since 2003 - almost 10 years ago. It's been mentioned numerous times. But people are always bringing up RDR as some kind of evidence, and somehow forget about the fact that L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3 were released on the PC platform.

Anyways good topic, but as others said it's pretty much known that's it's coming to PC. The million dollar question is When? tounge.gif

Perhaps you should add something about R* San Diego, and their history with the PC platform.

Didn't bother reading. Pc gamers are over reacting way too much about this Pc situation!

Of course they will release V for Pc. Sure, they could get away with not making it because the Pc represents <1/4 of all total sales. Consoles make double/triple than Pc. Anyway don't want to start a war since I know how sensitive you all are.

People will argue that it's possible that V won't come out on Pc because RDR was console exclusive. 1. Rock star didn't expect it to be such a hit ( I'd rate it as their 2nd best game ever) so they weren't sure if it was worth the time, money or effort to produce a Pc version. 2. They could have started developing it after seeing that lots of fans demanded a Pc version but maybe, again, it's just not worth the time, money or effort. They have been and are working on new games.

Lets forget RDR now. I'm 99% sure that V will arrive on PC. Again, they could get away with not bringing it out BUT I have never thought they'd seriously do that. Finally, it's obvious now that the PC version WILL NOT release at the same time as console versions. If you know what rock star is like then this shouldn't surprise you.

Expect GTAV PC version ~October/December 2013.

No need for some bogus theory.. of course it's going to come out for PC you'd have to be mad to think otherwise.

Yeap, exactly.

GTA V on PC is inevitable. No need to try and "prove" it. It's just something that will happen.
As usual, it will not be a simultaneous release with consoles, but it will happen.

Again, you should check R* San Diego's previous titles and their platforms. They're known to create console-exclusive titles only, since '03. It's a completely different story with RDR, there's no use bringing it up in this matter.

they didn't bother porting RDR to PC because they were busy developing GTAV for PC #FACT

Yes, R* San Diego's last PC release was Midnight Club LA back in 2003. Although I do feel R* SD could have released RDR for the PC if they wanted to but I dont they expected the game to be as big of an hit as it was hence refraining to do a PC version. I honestly don't feel it was a reource problem. Piracy is out of the question but R* SD simply did not make RDR becasue R* didn't expect it to be as big as it became.

icon14.gif very good and detailed analysis of the "floating clues around the corner" icon14.gif alien.gif I too have some statistical and marketing analysis based on my knowledge that makes me believe that R* will bring GTA V to PC eventually,it's just how much patience we have to control ourselves sarcasm.gif I thought posting those analysis as a thread but was afraid as any fun trolling user creating any kind of unnecessary flame war and the thread getting locked because of many more "GTA V PC threads" blush.gif

This is obviously fake becouse GTA V wont use GFWL just like MP3 and L.A Noire, they have their own Social Club system now and there is no need for GFWL

Lets forget RDR now

icon14.gif icon14.gif icon14.gif this is just a part of the analysis I was talking about.Good to see that one more has the same thinking as me monocle.gif and to detail it further here's my theory based on the examples : Dan Houser himself confirmed that he and all crew members were pretty unsure themselves on how RDR will perform even on consoles as it was based on a western protagonist (sorry forget the actual wordings of him,may you should just find it in "gtav.net") confused.gif and never played RDR as me a PC gamer so forget the name of protagonist sad.gif So they just took risk by releasing it on consoles to see the results and were themselves surprised on the outcome.They might had the plans for the PC but as R* San Diego doesn't make PC ports,they had to forcefully cancel it as major PC making branch companies were busy in optimizing Max Payne 3 for PC after what happened with GTA IV probably and some in developing L. A. Noire with Bungie. So that's just a part of the theory I have analysed and posting for the first time:)

The real question is, will the PC version include the video editor? Just imagine how many awesome movies could be made with it. While it was incredible in GTA4, the downside was you were limited to just one city. With GTA5 there's animals, forests, deserts, mountains and underwater. The possibilities are endless!


Don't forget it being set in Vinewood/Hollywood, the capital of American movies.

The OP makes some very good points. A PC version should be expected a few months after the console release.

if it were possible id rather have them do something like COD theater mode where it records your whole session and save it to the cloud. when you want it it will download to your PC and you can edit and render it and post to youtube. rather than having a time limit.

None of these are actual proof. 6 months later after the console release, there's nothing else to say bored.gif .

GfW isn't necessarily GfW Live. Though I doubt GTA V will be using GfW logo on box art.

You only have to look at Take-Two's past conference calls and finance reports. In the last finance report before Red Dead Redemption was released, Take-Two expected to make an overall income of 725-925 million dollar respective $0.40-$0.60 earnings per share until the end of the fiscal year. Red Dead Redemption had a stronger performance than originally expected because in the end Take-Two made 1.16 billion dollar respective $1.06 earnings per share. Or in other words; they earned 235-435 million dollar more income or $0.46-$0.66 more earnings per share than they expected in the last finance report before RDR was released. In some earlier reports, they even expected less from the game! So Red Dead Redemption was commercially and critically successful.

Nothing is sure yet. I don't think that we have to wait another half year this time but that is just my opinion.
