    folks, those screenshots are from a console. the ps3 can easily handle those textures. you don't need to upgrade your rig unless you are running 5 year old PC hardware...

    It can at 640/720p. Not 1080p etc. And these pictures like all games screenshots before launch are high res, and look better then what it looks like when it comes out.

    since those shots are dx9 i wouldn't worry about the difference between modern hardware handling 720p vs 1080p...

    You never know if the PC version will get the treatment like Max Payne 3 did.

    never played max payne 3. i mean, who am i to tell people how to spend their money? i am just saying that the vast majority of people on TPU will not need to upgrade for this game.

    idk people had to upgrade to quad cores for GTA4 because of how unoptimized it was and only played well on a quad.

    Same engine now as then. Game was designed for the consoles of that time which were unfortunately the same consoles we have now. Both consoles use multi-core CPU's. Dual core CPU's weren't cutting it. There will be absolutely no reason at all to upgrade anything in a computer for this game. The engine will still most likely be a piece of garbage like GTA IV was. We'll see though, maybe they can get it to actually utilize a higher powered GPU this time around. With the same consoles around though, I'm not counting on it.

    Even then you may still be OK! If it's top tier stuff and tweaked for maximum performance it would still be more powerfull than a console ;)

    Still buying it for PC (hopefully a day 1 release, but that's probably unlikely) even if the engine is simply ported over from the consoles with little optimization. GTA never fails to entertain me, which is more important for me then whether or not the textures are of high quality (i would like that, but it's not essential to me).

    If they don't have PC release along side console they are doing bad and they should feel bad.

    Not really, to be honest i would not mind if they held back the PC version within reason like if it was to improve it even more and to be honest i would release my game on console 1st as there might be a chance to get some people buy it for both.

    I just hope they made it run much efficiently with out losing any of the cool stuff i liked like driving and trashing cars as no other did it as good as the last one did.

    And as seen as this is the second MP version gives me more hope too. It just better have tanks so i can blow shit up with..

    When did I ever say people are going to have the upgrade. Im just hoping that maybe they do what they did with Max Payne, but Max Payne devs are from a different studio.

    I still want Red Dead Redemption on the PC.

    I will buy GTA5 for whatever platform. I don't care, I'll be using a Xbox 360 controller regardless.

    Crap LMAO... GTFOOH. They just need not to give the options of running the game at higher detail than any computer can handle or there be more cry baby's.


    Sure it was not perfect but crap WOW...

    what are we looking at september/october now? anyone know for pc? historically it has been months behind but max payne was very close. the only thing I need is a better gpu, not even for the power but for the vram - i can't even max out gta 4 and i expect the requirements to be in the same league.

    since those screenshots are rendered it is hard to tell just how good they will look. i will buy it for the ps3 most likely.

    That's an option - I normally only buy exclusives for the PS3 anymore simply because I've got the wireless 360 controller and the PC to my HDTV as well. why choose console if I can easily have it on steam or whatnot? I don't like discs.

    I'm upgrading anyway. I had to replace my motherboard so I figured why not upgrade at the same time. my contracted employer is covering partial costs so i am going to eek out the rest. of course the 7950 has nothing to do with work but i'm getting it anyway :)

    Screw the PS3, if there is any true PC game it's GTA.

    I just hope the phone is not as harassing, every frigging time i wanted to do some thing ring ring.

    Maybe they should not give so many graphic options to people because most will only cry about it.. Kinda like what people be doing with Arma.
