    I've looked all over the web and cant find any info on where to buy/pre order GTA V for PC.
    Looks like its only Xbox & PS3/4 at the moment...

    Anyone know where I can get a PC version or is that only coming out in a few months?

    The $250 Million dollar budget did not pay for a PC port sadly, funds ran out after they employed crackhead voice actors.

    That is an important step in any game development. And this is GTA after all, we want it to be authentic right?

    OH and I forgot to mention that it doesnt run very smoothly on the current gen of consoles, because it's that good of a game and coded so efficiently, you get a lot of framerate drops during gameplay.

    Thumbs up Rockstar, Thumbs up.

    GTA IV: April 2008 (consoles) -> December 2008 (PC)
    GTA Lost and Damned: Feb 2009(360) -> April 2010 (PC + PS3)
    Tony Gay: Oct 2009 (360) -> April 2010(PC + PS3)

    Idk how soon is your soon, but half a year is not "soon" to me. It will eventually come to PC though, just like almost every other GTA game out there.

    I left out the QFT part... I thought it would be understood that that was the intent, guess it's still too early! :)

    GTA for PC always comes in late. It has been this way for all of the past GTA games.

    Haha! I will be playing this gem of a game day one on the PS3 while you "elite" PC gamers will be playing old console ports on your overpriced machines!

    GTA V is not coming for PC because developers ( in general not all ) do not like mods... Is simple...

    And you all know you can do all kinds of mods with PC for any game.

    Yes, I'm sure that's why it isn't coming to PC. :slap:

    Is anyone surprised? It is running on the GTA IV engine, be it tweaked, and current gen consoles don't have any more power to give, so why would anyone expect better graphics?

    i think a lot of people believe it is using a new engine. anyway, the focus by gamers should be on gameplay and GTA 5 has a lot more to offer than even GTA 4.

    also, developers are pushing the PS3 to its limits. just look at video from the latest MGS. Pretty epic.

    That's like looking at the Metro 2033 360 version and assuming the PC version looks the same.

    A lot has changed since GTA IV was shoddily ported to PC. They developed Max Payne 3 alongside the console version development, and the improvements were obvious.

    My guess is they've either already done the same with GTA V, or plan to, and a PC version will probably be announce by Dec. Nex gen console versions might be announced at the same time.

    It would make sense to use the profits from the 360 and PS3 versions to develop both PC and next gen console versions alongside each other as separate projects, and they have the number of devs necessary to do it.

    Nvidia recently split the beans and released the potential release of GTA V on PC to be by the end of November this year.

    There has been source code leaked as well for PS4.

    They later redacted the statement and said they have no idea if the game will be out for PC. The person who wrote the speech "or whatever" used the game's name as a reference for popular games.

    It could be out as early as November or as late as a year from now the way I see it.
