Grand Theft Auto V: PC Discussion




Welcome to the official Grand Theft Auto V PC discussion thread, the place to discuss anything and everything regarding the to be announced GTA V PC version. 

 
 
                                                                                         ...
 
Alright guys and gals, I think we can pretty much all agree that the previous thread was going nowhere. Trolling, spamming, flaming and other tripe were running rampant. So after having given you some time to reflect, here is a new thread, a fresh start, a second chance. But make no illusions it is also your final chance to make it work.

 
To avoid this thread from going down the same path as its predecessor, I'd like to once again remind you of a couple of pivotal rules.
 
icon4.gif Do not respond to troll, spammers, disruptive character and the like. Just report them and move on. 
 
icon4.gif Keep the discourse civil and refrain from slinging personal attacks.
 
icon4.gif Do not post off-topic, general discussion about PC is allowed, however keep other content not relating to GTA V PC out of this thread.

 
icon4.gif Keep the posting of memes, gifs and other reactionary imagery to a minimum.

 
...
The Forum Rules - Read them, remember them, live them.
 
 
Remember, this thread will be very closely moderated. Any and all transgressions will be dealt with swiftly and appropriately.

Forum rules - read and remembered to follow them.

Done!

OT: It's a long wait. I can almost feel it. Tough to deal with it.

All eyes (hopes) on upcoming conference meet.

I know it's based on speculation, but honestly don't expect it any earlier than May. That's the 8 month mark (May 17th) so any sooner and it's actually really breaking past GTA PC port records. The fact that we've past the point of average GTA PC announcements, and still have no announcement, does not bode well for an early release.

 

I voted for later in the last topic because I feel that if I expect it sometime past summer 2014, then I can't possibly be disappointed.

In a previous thread there were some evidences posted that gta 5 is NOT a port like other gta games. Also gta sa and 4 were launched/ported on pc 6 months after console release.

Do you think that a March release is even possible? I mean, are Rockstar gonna announce the PC version and release it ~1 month afterwards? (assuming they announce it in February/end of January).

I am hoping for an April release, for that to be feasible an announcement shouldn't be far off.

Is the poll from the old thread coming back? The one 'when do you think GTA V PC version is coming?'

I can add a poll about the release date. Any additions? Maybe a poll about when you think the announcement will happen? A guesstimate of the system requirements? What do you think?

As someone who would really like the PC version now, I have to say, keep your expectations realistic people.

 

I can't see it coming before April. Why?

 

Take2 have blown their targets to bits this financial year already, which ends March 2014.

http://ir.take2games...9835&highlight=

If I remember prior to release their bold prediction was "earnings in excess of $2 per share". Now they are forecasting $3.50-$3.75 which is a phenomenal increase.

 

If I was in charge I would shunt every possible future release into the next fiscal. That includes a PC version of V, a next gen console version, or and paid for DLC for the PS3 and Xbox, some of which I suspect might be ready to go now, but are being deliberately held back.

 The log was found in the PS3 version of V not too long after the game launched.

That's what you call censoring? The previous PC topics got out of hand all the time, no matter how often people have been told to stay on-topic or cut the arguments. You can either have a PC topic and refrain from posting here unless you have something to add on the subject, or there is no PC topic, which would mean you have no opportunity to talk about the PC version. Which one do you prefer?

Good point. As of July 30th, they expected $1.775-1.875 billion or $2.25-2.50 earnings per share by the end of the fiscal year. Now the expectations are as high as $2.2-2.3 billion with the chance that it could turn out to be even more. I didn't expect a release prior to April anyway, though. It's middle January and there is still no announcement.

So it's safe to say that the PC version will be a "next-gen" version of the game, not just a shoddy port?

Correct. The game was developed for all three platforms since at least early 2012, and has been tested on the PC since around June 2012. This certainly doesn't sound like some shoddy port.

Yes. Very similar to Max Payne 3's PC version, it seems.  

 

Wow, I'm late.

Here's a bit of an interesting theory I have, as a veteran APB player. 

 

For those who don't know; Dave Jones, the original founder of DMA Design (Now Rockstar North) founded another developer, "Realtime Worlds (RTW)" in 2002. They went onto make APB: All Points Bulletin. A game that, according to some, was actually going to be a "prototype" GTA: Online or an "experiment". 

 

I followed the game through 2009 all the way up to the first closed beta. i participated in it and shared many fond and not-so-fond memories with many stages of the game. The life cycle of the game ended up being VERY short. Releasing in around June (if I remember correctly) and lasting only until September 2010.  

 

Soon after, in early 2011, GamersFirst, a Free to Play developer, picked up the game and "revived" it as "APB: Reloaded". 

 

The game has been going "okay" for the past 3 years or so now. But one of the developers (TechMech) made an interesting blog post about GTA V just a month after its release... 

 

http://apbreloaded.g...nd-getting.html

 

It's odd, isn't it? Making a post such as this about "competing" with a game that is not even on the appropriate platform to be competed with. APB:R is a PC-only game. GTA V was clearly a console release. Yet the blog post speaks as if it is going to be a direct "GTA: Online on PC vs APB on PC" confrontation. Using that Steam Data, as well. 

 

I doubt they know anything. But It's just very curious to me. GTA V's release was a big thing, for sure. But why would a game such as APB have to worry? It's as if they expected direct PC competition.

Hmm now im also thinking about a april-may release because for a march release the game should have been announced already. A may release seems more plausible because R* will have enough time to polish Online and the NG/PC version and maybe first release Heists for older consoles and complete package for PC/NG. I wouldnt like a may release but i hope by then we get a badass version of GTA V and if it runs smooth like MP 3 then im fine with it.

The first and third images seem very pre-rendered. The second one, though... 

 

Don't really know.
