Amazon lists GTA 5 for PC

Product listing from major online retailer suggests Rockstar may soon have an announcement to make.

by

Amazon France has posted a product listing for a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, suggesting Rockstar Games' critically acclaimed open-world game is coming to the platform. A PC version of the game remains officially unannounced and a Rockstar representative was not immediately available to comment.

Amazon France has a history of spilling information on new, unannounced retail offerings. The website was responsible for providing first details on Call of Duty: Black Ops II, as well as software collections for Ratchet & Clank, Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia, and Team Ico games Shadow of the Colossus and Ico.

GTAV is widely expected to come to PC sometime in 2014. In October, multiple Eurogamer sources said GTAV would be released for PC in early 2014, while a representative for Chip maker Intel has said that GTAV is not expected to be a console-exclusive for much longer. 2008's Grand Theft Auto IV launched in April for consoles before coming to PC in December of that year.

An online petition calling for a PC version of GTAV recently crossed 650,000 signatures, making it one of the biggest-ever petitions hosted on Change.org.

If GTAV does come to PC, it may not be the only new platform for the game. Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian contends that the game will be released for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2014.

I can't even play my ps3 copy anymore. Seeing the entire tv screen FLASH with a red x over my target for every kill I make just ruins the whole game. I sincerely hope the PC version has option to turn off hit markers and screen flashes, so i can finally enjoy this game.

I am getting it. I know the mod scene would boom as soon as they get their hands on it. I find no reason to even play my xbox copy anymore. Waiting for the mod love. And the no anti-aliasing is really a buzz kill.

Somebody pass this to Brutal Doom creator Sergeant_Mark_IV. GTAV isn't gory enough.

I hope I can play GTA 5 PC with my console account online. Otherwise I'm not doing it, not worth the grind all the way from lvl 1.

After all this wait I don't even know if I'd buy it now... I've been playing LCPDFR with ENB and car packs for so long that GTAV might just be boring and simple.

I'm pretty sure noone doubts if it will come to the PC; just not until the consoles are done fleecing the sheeples wallets dry.

No surprises i know that sooner or later its gonna be on PC and next gen. consoles, these ppl will make doubles and doubles of what they have gained from PS3 and X360 sales if they released it on PCs and next gen consoles and they arent fools to miss this chance. ITS LOGIC to release it on PCs.

Great news if it's true i can play a enhanced version of my PS3 version of GTA V on my beefed up Gaming PC (which i will), but it wouldn't stop the so called PC elitists ( I play on both Console and PC and like them equally) form complaining or try to anger the console only fans by saying "thanks for BETA testing the game now we get the best version", even though you need a console controller to get the best gameplay experience (I use a xbox 360 controller for pc console ports).

Change.org?? Hahahahahah, that website is sooo full of shit, this is probably the best petition they have ever had!!!!

Wasn't it obvious? These guys want money, so they'll release it on PC.

I still want RDR released on PC so that the mod community can fill up all that empty boring space in the game.

Every now and then there is an Amazon store listing GTA V for PC. Someone should tell Amazon to quit messing up with the poor PC souls, this is evil!

Well, this isn't really surprising. Or is it?

Every main GTA game has been on pc, so this is no surprise.


I got tired of waiting, and got it on ps3, and was pleasantly surprised.  It's the first main GTA game I've liked since Vice City.  Hated SA and IV.  This is a return to form for the series.


The best open world crime game since Saints Row 2.


I'll gladly rebuy GTA V.

All that time begging for a last-gen console port is coming to fruition. Stay smart and keep begging until they listen.

Would be nice if they got the porting team to fix that widespread bug in GTA4 that prevents player from grabbing onto helicopter (and finishing game).

Looks like France surrendered the information.

This game was amazing on last gen consoles, so even a minor improvement in graphics is going to look good. I wouldn't have deprived myself for so long just because I have a PC, but I might play it just to see the difference. No doubt you'll see a PS4/Xbox One version along side.

Good, more people will be exposed to this masterpiece.

Rockstar, if you can make the game not run like shit on the PC that would be great. Even after all of those patches GTA4 ran better on consoles than on the PC even if you put them at similar graphical settings. If the PC version runs worse than the console version then you don't give enough of a shit about the port for me to give you my money.

@TalokMax Payne 3 pc was a good port and quite well optimized.

@willjohnboy Indeed, the driving and moving around are best with a controller... but I can't shoot for shit with it :( still think a mouse and keyboard are better for shooting, especially for the people (myself included) that are not accustomed to playing on a controller.

@pszone Would be nice but I doubt it, either way it will be worth the wait. I held off on finishing it on PS3 so I could play it on my preferred platform.

@turbojugend16 And what say you in regards to GTA 1-4 on PC!? Get used to it, because it's coming hard and fast and isn't going to stop until it's inside you.

@turbojugend16 Your 2k euros rig probably isn't capable of playing GTA IV on max settings with mods installed.   Because it's that badly optimized.

@DrKill09 This is likely the main reason why Rockstar have been so quiet on a PC version - and I still think there's a chance it will never be released. They know very well many PC gamers will buy the console version, and then re-buy the game - if - it comes to PC.

@magnumsworldThats a FPS bug, turn on VSYNC and you will pass that mission. You need under 60 FPS to grab onto the heli. So if your moniter is 120hz try to turn on settings on maxed out to get it to lag so you can pull yourself up onto the heli. Lot of missions in EFLC have the same FPS bug, too high of fps and I get a forever loading screen.

@GH05T-666 It should.  People who scoured the PS3 and Xbox 360 discs found references to both consoles in the code.

@Auriken GTA IV ran great after they patched, maybe you just have a shit PC or have no idea how to adjust settings. Furthermore their settings menu was one of the best I have ever seen, it actually listed how much of my GPU memory each setting would use.

@Auriken See Max Payne 3: Same engine, heavily multicore optimized, DX11, really sweet performance, great SSAO implementation, textures MADE for PC and overall a really beautiful game.


I have no doubt that Rockstar learned its lesson.

@Gronibard @TalokThat's what I'm also thinking about. I was able to run Max Payne 3 (everything on low, ofc) on 8 years old hardware (8600GT). So my guess is they're gonna do the right thing with GTA.

@Necrotron @GH05T-666 Really? I only recall the PS4's OS being listed in the 360 version right when the game was released.


The only other thing to come from the console version was the build log from the PS3 with DX 11, PC, and next gen mode and last gen mode listed several times. Nothing on Xbox One though.

@Krauklis@AurikenIt still runs like crap even with the latest hardware, that's nothing new. Also the setting where you see how much memory your gpu is using was next to useless since it was showing a very rough estimate and in most cases was wildly inaccurate.

@Capt_Irrelevant it's because of people like you that developers are so scared of releasing for PC .
