GTA V for PC listed on Amazon's German store

Rockstar is yet to confirm whether hotly anticipated open-world game will be coming to PC.

Two German retailers have listed Grand Theft Auto V for the PC, suggesting that the game might be on more than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 when it launches later this year.

Both Amazon.de and GamesOnly have the game available for preorder at €59.99.

Previous Grand Theft Auto titles have been released for PC after the console versions. The last main game in the series, Grand Theft Auto IV, saw a PC release eight months after it launched for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in April 2008.

Developer Rockstar has not confirmed GTA V for PC, but has said that it is "up for consideration".

One petition to bring GTA V to PC has 172,092 signatures at time of writing.

GameSpot recently saw GTA V in action, and has in-depth previews of the game's heist missions and various open-world possibilities.

Grand Theft Auto V will be released, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at least, on September 17.

That is good news that leans to it being confirmed. I don't have a PC capable of running the game so it doesn't affect me much but it is good news that more people will be able to enjoy what looks to be an amazing  game. Not that I ever doubted there'd be a PC version anyway(it would be stupid for Rockstar to lose those potential sales) considering GTA got it's start in the PC to begin with if I am not mistaken.

This is good news. I know it is not confirmed but it does seem very likely though.

It will certainly please the current PC gamers, who have been left a wee bit in the dark since it's announcement.

I don't play on the PC yet, although I am looking to do so, just as soon as this current generation of consoles comes to an end?

I've had enough of console gaming, after seeing the huge improvements and the wide variety available in the PC version of Skyrim.

I have "Skyrim: Mods of the Week," to thank for that.

So GTA V on the PC is a huge benefit for me, when I come around to switching.

I wouldn't mind if they delayed the launch of PC for a month or two as a way to combat pirates and get a head start on sales. As long as they do release the game for PC making it a good port as well I will be happy.

If they don't release it they will make a big marketing mistake, which I am sure they are aware of, the reason why it's 6 month after is probably because they want to maximize selling of consoles and then do the same for PC, and it's really nice trick to get more money :)

Thanks man, I never got the arguing between gamers.  I mean after all we all enjoy the same hobby.  You would think we would be closer as a community.  But there will always be arguing and fighting, so we have to keep things friendly.

I don't care if they do or do not and I don't want to hear any complaining if this game doesn't come to PC either. It's not like  you're going to stop buying games from them.

I'm always curious as to why they mess with the GTA releases for PC.  There are theories, but I can't find any that seem to work.  Overall the most common thing seems to be that a simultaneous PC release would reduce console sales.  This could be seen as potential losses either from piracy, lower margins on PC digital sales, or maybe something else like it would look better and upstage the console versions.

But, for such losses to happen, there needs to be a substantial number of console owners who also own a capable gaming PC.  Is there a substantial number of those?

It will come, of course.

Either they know something we don't, or that's a mistake. I expect it will get a PC release, just six months after the console versions, as we did for San Andreas and GTA IV.

It will come to PC. I will wait. It doesn't bother me in the slightest. I buy all multiplats for my PC. I have more games than I have time to play them, so waiting a little while longer won't bother me at all.

@punksterdaddy That's great, I once was a console gamer only, now after experiencing PC gaming I now only play on PC. You should make the change, you will not regret it, 100% sure on this

@lorider25 then why did you comment? Since I`m a PC gamer and I do want to release this game on PC even one month later than xbox or ps3.

@hystavito Ya, its a good question.  I wonder if they're trying to capitolize on the modding.  They release the xbox/ps3 version first knowing that retards like me 6 months down the road will buy the pc version :P

@Morphibiann @punksterdaddy

I am glad to hear it. I certainly have had enough of console gaming. I have a PC, so why not use it to its fullest?

You've have helped me in my decision with your comment, thank you very much mate.

@tchanah @BIGXGAMER Another sheep.  Being "better than Call of Duty" doesn't make a game good.  WOW IT'S SHINY ON PC AND THE LIGHTING IS AWESOME!  Awesome for 5 minutes untill you realise the gameplay is disapointing.

@chrsmats @hystavito I own a pretty powerful PC but I understand that a simultaneous PC/console release is very stupid and a business suicide.  PC owners think "hey everybody's doing it, I'll do it too".  And that's never going to change.

What CD Projekt does, I respect:  Release on PC first, then console a few months later.  Those are the guys that put effort in PC performance, graphics, and stability, and listen to gamers.  I force myself to pay companies who put their trust in their audience (despite the audience not deserving it) and take more time to develop, to make sure their product is on par or exceed expectations.  They deserve respect and need money to stay afloat.  They have to be REALLY confident that their product is great to take a leap of faith and see if console owners will want buy it months later. They will not release Witcher 3 PC only though.  Witcher 2 sold 1.5 million copies world-wide, and allegedly has been pirated 5 million times.  You brought it on yourselves.

This is the right moment to say:  GG gamers.  Keep wondering why you get DRMs and delayed PC releases.  It's a vicious circle.  "I'M SO OUTRAGED, I WILL PIRATE THEM"  Developers take drastic measures to prevent piracy, and gamers pirate because of the drastic measure.  Then developers find more drastic measures to prevent it (online-only, delay PC releases) and gamers are even more outraged.  How is it going to stop?  It won't.  Everybody's greedy, Nothing to do about it.

@Keaze_  When the hell did me or @BIGXGAMER said such thing? Yah I play on PC. Yah I love good graphics. And I love COD series except BOII. Oh son! Stop imagining scenarios!!

@Barrakas21 Don't forget that many of those signatures could be potential game pirates. Rockstar is not retarded and knows what they are doing, all previous GTA games released on PC have been pirated numerous times, and Rockstar's sales have suffered for it. Let's be honest a lot of gamers would and will pirate this game if it is released for PC. It's a sad truth we all must suffer for.
