    Boycotting them won't matter, they'll sell so many copies of GTA5 on console it'll be ridiculous. Rockstar doesn't give a shit about PC.

    Of course, if a game doesn't do so well, they'll sell it on PC as witnessed with LA Noir. No Red Dead Redemption though, the effers.

    Had a 360, month later gave it away to my brother. GTA was always a console game anyways, and as far as my opinion goes it was never a very good one post PS2! The latest ones merely boast using huge amounts of HDD space, for some very repetative gameplay. All my friends say the game was always made for cheats...
    Not a loss to the pc community...

    It pays to be a multi-platform gamer, when will you all learn!? Having said all that i won't be buying it because GTA 4 was diabolical...

    Console is where the money at, so it's understandable (but still not acceptable;))

    I hope its not like that PC gamers will have to wait as much as a year again, then they get an utterly unoptimized and ported piece of junk code which will make any CPU suffer terribly, just like how it went down with the GTA-4 or LA-Noire.
    In the past, Rockstar meant awesome game designers and terrible coders, and I hope they are rich enough now to hire somebody who can code properly.

    I really really hope their PS3 and Xbox versions to be pirated like hell, just to teach Crapstar a lesson...

    but no matter what if GTA5 will be any good - that will be reason to spend for some hardware upgraids. I remember when GTA4 came on PC - I upgraided just for that game. other games still cant put my hardware (see my old/cheap specs) to feel some heat (I run everything on "ultra" with UNDERclocked CPU and default clocked HD6850). in 2014 my good old PC will be like like grandfather and GTA5 will be good reason to spend some cash for new system, till then - if I had like 2 core CPU and HD4870 I would still run everythin on "high" settings @1080p

    I guess they don't want my money then. Sucks for them. :p

    I'd never play GTA with a controller. It's a TPS and demands a mouse.

    I have two Xbox 360s here at home but I really would want the PC version, because I can't stand playing with 30 fps(with occasional drops), I really can't. It feels choppy. I got used to around 60 fps. a little bit of choppyness in my games and I rage already lol

    I only use my 360 to play multiplayer with friends coming over, play games that have horrible PC version or to play exclusive titles(maybe this is the case for GTAV for now)

    I'll still wait and end up buying it. Just curious, how big of a download file do you guys thing it will be? 15GB?





    His name was Kurt Cobain and there is absolutely no way he's still alive.

    The problem is that it doesn't really matter what kind of hardware you put under a crap unoptimized code, it will always feel bad. You can play GTA4 on a pimped out Ivy bridge rig and still feel how badly the CPU is struggling with the horrible code (the cache misses, the thread overheads, the erratic input pooling, everything is rough and jittery and makes the performance fluctuate). The game just never feels and moves right, it's only fun to play because of the design and not because it's a well made game. (Most of the NFS series are also like this for example, those games will never feel right imho)

    That game was the epitome of shitty ports. It shouldn't have required anything more than a 3650 to play. It felt like the game was being ran solely on the CPU. Lets not even talk about the graphical glitches.

    :ohwell::ohwell:

    they are only shooting themselves in the foot by doing this, but then again the console market is bigger than the PC market. If thats the way they choose to roll then to put it just simply ~fuck'em~ I bought the GTA pack for $8 off steam, tried to play 2 of the most recent games for about 10mins then completely uninstalled. the game is so laggy on my PC its like watching a slide show.

    I could care less. there are better games out there that are worth my time and more importantly my money.


    Though the way they went about 'silencing' the PC crowd by saying they would ban/suspend them was just funny, Something tells me there wont be a PC version of the game out for a long long time.

    If it was due to GTA III and vice city, those were locked at 30FPS and you need a frame limiter to set 30FPS.

    They have always done this to PC. Why would anyone think different? The only game that hasn't made it to PC is rdr.. But all GTA games have made it over to PC. I enjoyed GTA IV on the pc and can't wait to get V, but I'm not going to get pissed because we wont get it at the same time as console.. I'd take Mafia 3 over this game.. hehehe

    Also, I bet that Rockstar was actually making the game for the next gen of consoles, but then money talked, because current gen needs to keep selling/being profitable until next year's xmas.
