The release date hasn't been announced yet for the PC version. It could be from 1 month away to whole year as far as any of us no.

 

And no, it shouldn't just be a PC title

Mouse and keyboard is far better than a controller. Auto aim is for pansies.

Its way better on PC, aim ing is incredibly better and the keys are way more sensitive and you(i) can manouver the car much better (at least in GTA3). And I have a steering wheel, which is great atvantage if i didnt want to use the keys(but i do, cus thyre fine). And along with all the customizable options, whats thepoint in buying a ps2, and a memory card, and the games that costs £40, when you can get a way better version for £30 ?

 

And most other games for ps2 are crap.

GTA 3 is just a crap programmed game. Now listen. Why would the release date for GTA:VC on pc be set so late. Offcourse! It will probably better than the ps2 version. Ps2 is er.. not the best quality, the games are expensive, all gta-series are actually way better to play with keyboard and mouse, not to mention, we will be able to put in our own mp3's, there will be done a whole lot of modding, better graphics, and have i mentioned multiplayer yet??

 

You beat that with a console. Now i don't mean to start a argument here, but the pc will always be ahead of consoles. The only advantage i see in having GTA:VC for ps2 is that you will be able to play it sooner. I also need GTA:VC players who have the game on ps2 for our vice city forums, for the gameplay help section.

Oh dear. Its like the GTA3 arguement all over again...I thoughed we'd learned

How do you know which platform will be better? Its not even out yet :sarcasm:

You just can't compare a keyboard and mouse to a controller that sits nicely in your hand while your swiggin a can of stella in your livin room on a widescreen TV, no contest.

Please lets not start this again  :*(

Nope. Sorry. that's just retarded. No console will EVER be better than a PC. EVER. I don't have to argue that. R* just got lazy with the PC version, and everyone starts slagging it off. I'm not stupid to be drawn into the dragnet by Sony, and spend 200 bucks on the system, 19 on an extra control, and more on a memory card JUST to get Vice CIty which will EVENTUALLY get old, and you won't be able to do jack sh*t, since you can't even mod it. Especially since I could take that 200, buy a few 3ds max books, learn 3ds max even better AND buy Vice City which will play better on my good PC so it all adds up in the end. Patience is a virtue. And I hate R* for leaving PC gamers out in the cold like this.

TBH, for what it is, I prefer the PS2 GTA3. As has already been mentioned, the colours on the PC version, as a result of the reflection effect, are faded and red looks pink, etc. At the moment, I only play my friends PS2 version because its easier to pick up and play, and the PC version was so badly converted, resulting in poor play, that I can't be bothered to install it when the PS2 version works so much better. If they had done a better job of the conversion, or maybe added more features, cough*multiplayer*cough, then I would still be playing it.

 

As for Vice City, I'm not going to follow the development for this one as eagerly as GTA3. I will still buy it and play it (if it comes out for PC), but I'm not going to get hyped up again about it. From what I've seen, it looks fantastic, but if R* have not announced a PC version yet, I'm not going to be on tenderhooks waiting for it.

 

Just my 0.02p.

True, ;) True  ;)  I was the one who mentioned the colours screwed cause of the reflection, for those who dont know,   :blush:  

 

 

Yea i reckon, one thing i noticed was that on the ps2 i played GTA3 and the colours of the cars were great. The Banshee had a really nice tone of red and then i came on the PC version the Red Banshee was Faded pinkish brown! It looks so gay. Imagine Vice City if that was the case. Relfections would look screwed.

DOes anyone know of a way to fix that?

How do you know the PS2 version will have better controls and be 10x more fun Wanker.

It will because  you can acually use a controler instead of a keyboard or joystick  

 

 

I second the bold underline

 

Back to the original Question

 

No one knows if it will be relesed for PC the only thing known is that Rockstar signed a deal with Sony Entertainment America that states the GTA series will stay on the PS2 Platform until 2004, it was unclear if that only applies to XBox, Gamecube, and Gameboy advance, or if it also applies to PC as well . My Guess is the PC owners will Have to wait and find out.

 

So don't believe anyone it is unknown to everyone  execpt Sony and Rockstar.

 

All of the bold information are pure facts.

Trunks, there was a second press release that went with the Sony deal. Take 2 announced the Sony deal. They also announced (it's on Gamespot but you have to pay... you can read the title, I read the article) that this deal DID NOT apply to PC and PC would be getting every edition of Grand Theft Auto in a timely fashion.

I happen to agree with this statement 100%.

I'm sure somewhere a PC gamepad will be somewhat the same as a PS2 controller (altho i have yet to find). Its just PC's are alot more versitile and the standard keyboard& mouse play totally different than the PS2 controller.

I prefer the PC, because its accuracy is much better, and i can aim without annoying auto aim.....

 

To sum up this thread..

WE DONT KNOW!

Assumptions CANNOT be confirmed, so arguing like little retards about controlls and so forth, before we have even seen/played the game on both platforms in real time, is just not worth the effort.

 

" Arguing online is like the special olympics, even if you do win, your still a retard"

 

Take that quote under consideration, and keep it fun guys

According to one of the Vice City site, GTA: Vice City will come out for PC in May 2003. Just like when GTA3 came out for PC...

Loosemoose

If you really wan't to argue about all this Again, then go ahead. For the real PC vs console pad test, go and play Q3A on the internet against all the Dreamcasters. They can only have 8char names, so when you go online and kick them all 30-2 with a name like 'Dreamcast's suck' cos thier crappy pads can't aim for sh*t, i think you will see how much better pc is than ANY console.

Just my 2 pence.

I 100% Agree with "Loosemoose". Games are for PC'z well todays games anywayz. Consoles should just bring out games like tetris and pac man. if you want a true gaming experiance go for the Mighty PC Platform...

PC's are good for single player games and internet games - Consoles are good for playing fighting/sports games with your mates.

 

Simple. As. That.
