Yeah, I see no irony there.

I think most people know that back in the day GTA III - VC - SA would have all had trouble if they were released solely for PC

 

I don't think it takes any brains to know that and if you don't then you're a noob or just dumb.

 

I think you forget that I'm a PC gamer, I'm just being honest.

 

Very possible that without GTA take two would have been sold a long time ago.... A fact.

 

Take two dies and Rockstar probably would have too.... Or been bought out by EA who probably would not have let GTA be the series we love today.

 

Also that kid up there said GTA was ruined by consoles. I say the exact opposite.

 

R* knows what they are doing. GTA IV was the top selling media of all time until it was beat 1/2 year later by I forget the movie/game ... Maybe COD 2

You can refer to yourself as "smart" and everyone else as a "dumb noob" all you want, I know that's easier than trying to back up your babble with facts or trying to dispute actual facts. I won't play this stupid little game of yours though so I'm sorry, now call me another name, that'll make you look all the smarter.

 

Since you edited your post before I posted: no I did not forget that you claim to be/are a PC gamer, I just don't care since it has nothing to do with the discussion at hand. Consoles are a good thing and make a lot of money, sure. But again and again there have been devs/publishers who have shown that PC only publishing can work too. You said that would have killed R* and I said it would not necessarily have. That's all.

 

Mostly I was just making fun of you for that very ironic post; read it again and I'm pretty sure you'll find what I'm talking about too. No need to start a flamewar about it.

 

Oh and I think that game was COD4, COD2 was released long before GTA IV (2005).

I didn't know I was talking to you. If you are dumb then you already know.

 

Facts are facts and so is history. If you wanna think I'm making crap up than that's for you to assume but you will be on the losing end.

 

I've got a PC and PS3. My PS3 sits there for a few days with no play. I'm busy playing Guild Wars 2 and Torchlight 2. I like all gaming.

 

Actually you are pretty dumb, just throwing that out there.

 

Dummy.

Man that's just pathetic. I actually feel sorry for you.

 

First, it was you who said everyone who didn't share your opinions was a dumb noob. Read your posts if you're too ADD riddled to remember what you said 10 minutes ago.

 

"Facts are facts" IF they are facts. Just because some idiot on a forum claims something doesn't make it a fact.

 

I will be on the losing end? I'm not fighting you child, you're way below my radar. You can't even remember that COD2 came out in 2005, not after 2008, so I ask permission to doubt your recollection of the past.

 

Keep insulting me though, that gives real weight to your points. I love me some keyboard warriors.

 

Btw, last response you'll get from me so make sure your next insults are reaaallly bad language mommy would never allow you to use without bitch slapping you, so I'll be reeeeeaaallly mad and angry, that'll show me for having a differing opinion.

I said I didn't know what game beat GTA IV maybe Modern Warfare two?

 

Who really cares. Point being GTA IV smashed world box office releases ( unheard of for a videogame... Usually a title held by movies)

 

Ohh and guess what... No PC release was needed.

 

There's your facts and if you don't know how to factcheck let me introduce you to a little site called GOOGLE!

 

So dumb.... I swear

I think it's better if I kill my hopes for GTA V anytime soon after the console version now. Grand Theft Auto V in November/December 2013. Great. turn.gif

No consoles anywhere near you? I know it isn't quite the same but at least you can play earlier.

No. I don't have any consoles (except a Playstation, a Playstation 2 and a broken XBox). I won't buy a console since I don't have much money because I'm a student. Yeah, I just have to be patient for another year.

Ive got enough ATM to buy a console + decent tv, but i dont think its f*cking worth. If i choose to buy a console:

 

-I will buy a piece of hardware that would be outdated in a year

-is not useful beyod gaming

-IS NOT comfortable for playing 3rd person games (keyboard/mouse ftw)

Me to, remember IV's Xbox exclusive DLC? Well I own a PS3 lol.

Got it in the end though, worth the wait.

 

I know for a fact though that if GTA wasnt coming out on PS3 day one, I would buy whatever platform it came out on, yup fanboy alert.

Because the PC platform isn't as profitable as the consoles. I believe that the development for PC is cheaper but it doesn't sell as much as the console version.

Because that's how Rockstar's policy works. They release PC version later (like 5-6months, still we don't know how much we'll wait for GTA V PC version, maybe 5-6months, maybe 1 or 2 months) to boost consoles sales. And it's like this since GTA 2. In addition to this, they never anounce PC version next to consoles. NEVER. They'll release some kind of PC announcement trailer ant that's all (but first I think they'll give us some info or hints about PC version).

Im very mad about this thing. I truly hoped that they would work on the PC version. Very big dissapointment. I planned to buy a new computer, but now... I am defenitely not going to buy new PC, Xbox, TV all together.

 

So R*, you made me a big big dissapointment. Ur reputation just lowered.

It likely has to do with three main factors:

Better textures/graphics

More features than console versions

Multitude of PC setups and components that the game needs to run on

Oh wow.

This is worrying. I don't care about the PC version but this just incompetence, really. They don't even know if they'll bring it to PC? Surely they should've already started porting, or at least made a decision about it!

 

Wow. This really is something else.

Well they said that Spring in 2013 is for X360 and PS3 smile.gif Of course they will release PC version, it's already clear... That's how Rockstar's policy works since GTA 2... You shouldn't be surprised. GTA 2, GTA 3, GTA VC, GTA SA, GTA IV - all these games were announced only for consoles (Xbox/Xbox 360 and Playstation 2/ Playstation 3) but after 5-6 months PC users got PC versions. This is how it works.

 

Even if they started something (and I think they already started doing something with PC version) they won't tell us. They'll tell us when they will be ready.

 

EDIT: Now when I look at their post about PC versions I can see that they said "don't have any details to share about a PC version at this time." Yeah, they "don't have" any details to share smile.gif Not that they don't have any details at all, they have, but it's just not the time to share those details. Just wait.
