A couple of German retail websites have put up a listing regarding the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, raising hopes that a PC version of the game is in development.

Amazon Germany and GamesOnly have both listed the unannounced PC version of the game.

Moreover, a listing of a special edition for the game was briefly put up by GamesOnly before they promptly took it down. The special edition was said to contain the following in addition to a copy of the game.

SteelBook with exclusive artwork
World map
Stunt-planes challenges
Online-store concessions
Bonus outfits
Bonus tattoos
Special abilities booster
Exclusive weapons

Although the listing’s been removed, a rep from GamesOnly apparently confirmed the existence of such a edition to a member of a GTA fan site known as GTA-extreme.de.

“We can confirm that the content, as it is stated in the item description is correct” read the statement.

Grand Theft Auto V is going to release on September 17 worldwide for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Appealing as long as the PC version runs at max or near max settings on my current system with smooth performance.

Not some poorly optimized version which requires a few generations of computer hardware before being able to play it at somewhat acceptable levels with no AA.
Been playing GTA IV and some of the Very high/high settings look awful.
Looks like all they did was increase texture resolution size to the point where it just looks odd.
