GTAV PC petition reaches 100,000 signatures

Online petition adds 50,000 signatures in two days calling on Rockstar to release open-world action game for PC.

by

The Change.org petition calling on Rockstar Games to release a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V now stands at over 100,000 signatures. This is a marked increase from the 50,000 the petition had amassed just two days ago.

The petition says it is a "big shame" that GTAV is not announced for PC, specifically calling out the modding community being a "huge part" of PC gaming.

"Modded GTA is some of the most insanely fun times you can have," a line from the petition reads.

Rockstar Games has not officially acknowledged the petition, and a representative was not immediately available to comment.

Last week, Rockstar Games cofounder Dan Houser said PC and Wii U versions of GTAV were "up for consideration." The most recent entry, 2008's Grand Theft Auto IV, released for PC seven months after the console versions shipped.

GTAV is officially due out during spring 2013 only for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

I want to see this PC game that blows everything away graphics wize?... honestly I want it for my pc...,on Farcry 3 the diff in graphics is tiny, just a bit more colour to the
environment and thats the same with all the other new release games
which are compared graphics pc to console.
 

With the way the pc fan boys bang on you'd think the diff was huge lol, cant wait
for the new consoles to shut these lot up and dont worry pc players they will release gta 5 for it, probs a year or so after console release. lol

If Pc gamers have shelled out the type of money on there system to play these type of game on Ultra (all pc gamers boast there's can even when they can't) why not just buy an xbox or ps3 to avoid these complications, I own a good pc (I'd never plan on playing gta 5 on) a 360 and a ps3...

Well, if anyone actually played GTAIV on PC you would know that it was a pretty shoddy port. The graphics weren't that much better and you needed a killer system to run it at its best.

I really don't understand this console/pc war... if people don't like to play games on consoles you don't have to... if you are complaining about this game don't being released on PC play other games with much better graphics as you say so. If you play a game just for the graphics then go watch a bluray HD 3d animation movie. I always played pc games upgraded computers to top since Pentium166 but I give up of pc gamming now.  Personally I was getting tired of hardware upgrades every new game release.On console I enjoy having trophies, good online servers, simplicity of console (run and play) and other goodies, I just wanna play a game not to play the same game forever and buy new computer after finish that game. If you prefer PC I respect it, myself i don't have time for computer gaming anymore, the time I have to deal with computers at work is more than enough.

humans are dumber then a brick seriously.... i consider myself a hybrid gamer if that is even what you call us lol idk i play on both pc and console very equally but you console fanboy fucks need to realize you pirate to.  game companies see you fucks buying used games just as equal to pirating and gamestop is the black market blind ass fanboys >_> annoy the hell out of me

i was more stunned Red Dead Redemption hasn't had a PC release. I couldn't play the console versions as the graphics were just too annoyingly low res and crap.

I tried both versions and both were terrible.

lol It is obvious they will release it just they will use the money they make from PS3 and 360 sales to make the PC version.

Anybody who can afford a PC to run GTA V isn't likely to pirate it anyway. I'm betting that most pirates are people that have lower spec PCs.

I understand how PC gamers feels about this. But I'm sure it will come out eventually, it always does. It's Grand Theft Auto, and they will be crazy not to. Despite that, this online petition thing, 100,000 signatures is not really a lot, on the Internet that is. It's not like doing it in person, where you have to convince every person to listen to you, understand what they're signing, and with such a controversial past, it will be hard to do so.  Now if it was 1,000,000 online signatures (not taking into account anyone who would have double signed), then that will something which is closer to actually going out and getting 100,000 in-person signatures.

Just release it on PC. But this time a more stable version, please. Don't be like Bethesda (to whom the costumers of some machines seem to be second rate costumers for them).

@LukeWesty 

I think Farcry 3 looks like shit on all platforms, what you fail to realize is that farcry 3 is a port, like most crap games now a days, companies don't take advantage of the PC, if they did, then you would see a huge difference....but you are right, I didn't see much difference myself, because the game was just ported, nothing else, look at farcry, to me, farcry blows away farcry 3...the series has gone backwards, Farcry is still my all time favorite game ever, I couldn't stand 2 and 3.....an absolute joke, anything that goes to consoles becomes shit.

@LukeWesty Bitch please, GTA 5 is nothing without modding same goes for every other GTA game. I hope to god for your and my sake that these new consoles will be better than a mid-end gaming PC. Consoles need to keep up with technology.

 @bryjoered2007 Well my system could run far cry 3 on high graphics with any lag, but gta iv runs shitty even on low graphics, rockstar really made a SHITTY job at porting it to the pc, so if they make the same job at porting gta v, no pc would be able to run it...

It's not we say so, it's fact idiot....keep playing your toys, we're mad because if it wasn't for the PC, which rockstar was born on....there would be no rockstar, but I dont care, rockstar can choke on their own dicks for all I care....I hope manhattan gets nuked soon, and rockstar with it........how about that?

 @gigapig It seems to be a growing trend that if their mummies and daddies won't cough up enough for a gaming Pc they have to take it on those that have the smarts to have swtiched :)

 @flammable_zeus i tihnk it is just he mentality of some people and has nothing to do with how much money they have.

People like that make me sick as they seem to think they have this god given right to not have to pay for someones hard work they went to.

They are an insult to gaming.

 @Venatorcruiser i am happy for you but it was nothing compared to what a modern pc could do. Graphics were very low res and fuzzy on console with not even a hint of anti aliasing to clean  things up.

 @thetrollbasher  @tazdevil33  @RunzWthScissorz luls he said child again. what i say? hilarious.. whats even more funny is he took what i said about him being predictable and twisted it into his own words. my god you sir, you sir just made my day enjoyable thank you.

 

Let me guess your next comment will be "i still didn't read it. stop acting like a child and grow up. i don't  care what you type I'm never gonna read it anyways god what a child".

 

But if he didn't read it how is he laughing and how is it predictable idk, who cares, i guess we will never know.. 

 

untill the next episode of The Gamespot Troll

 @mikeisepic  @tazdevil33  @RunzWthScissorz Still didn't read it.Are you alone?Is that why you keep replying?Or is it because you are like every other child,using "the last word complex" to feel superior.I don't care what you have to say because your words are worthless to me.Keep replying.Each and every message of yours is laughable and predictable.Come on,make my day by being predictable once again.

 @thetrollbasher  @tazdevil33  @RunzWthScissorz my dear boy the only one raging here is you.  You see what you are doing is disregarding the whole argument at whole and trying to enrage us with such childish demeanor like calling us said "child".  As it seems to be working less so your mind is crumbling you don't know what to say so you consider our responses as "raging". 

 

Its quite sad actually i feel sorry for you i really do but the only reason i keep this going is to watch you try and come up with another witty comeback that involves the word child.

 

i hope you are having about as good of a day as me :)

 @thetrollbasher  @mikeisepic  @RunzWthScissorz

 maybe you should read it and quit judging people. Everyone has reasons why they buy consoles and what made you so angry you feel you have to attack people all the time anyhow?  I am also curious do you just call people child because you think that is an insult or are you just so full of yourself you think you are better than everyone?

A fanboy is a made up word to begin with and there are many reasons people buy consoles. My PS3 i use to talk with my friend overseas and also play 3D Blurays.

My 360 i use for Halo series  and to talk to people occasionally as well. My PC is just always on so it is much easier to just use this for most gaming as well. Weighing up the cost difference between Pc gaming and console gaming not taking into account hardware which is just a one off purchase for the most part as is the console. You end up with a much higher return on your investment buying Pc games.

 

i also have an Xbox 1 with about 150 odd games i have collected from second hand shops in the past few years.

 

i have a dreamcast that a friend was using as a doorstop still new in the box and unopened for years.

 

An N64 and a Sony playstation 1.

 

As i am also an oldschool gamer at heart the Pc is the only way to get the best of all  worlds now. 

 

The entire command and conquer series EA Christmas sale $19.95 . That is all 17 games in the series for one low price.

I did however pick up Journey and Unwritten swan at Sony's Christmas sale for $9.95 for both too which is great value for the PS3.

 

Consoles are starting to become too locked for my liking and that is the main reason i don't game on them much.

 

It amazes me people have so much hate towards others for having a diffence in opinion. no wonder we have so much unnecessary violence in the world.

 

The true trolls are the ones saying disgusting things to each other to bignote themselves as they feel they have some sort of power of which in reality they have none.

 

I am not going to answer people who are going to swear and carry on stupid and can't be civil.

 @thetrollbasher  @mikeisepic whom does it need to be valid to you? a little childish that seems. stop trolling its common sense which it seem you have none of. Shall i direct you to a definition of the meaning of "FANBOY" seeing as your definition of "FANBOY" seems to mean a vaguely smeared version of the word seeing as you think a fanboy buys all consoles and a PC and only caters to the one while the others collect dust.

 

But seeing as you turn this into a argument which i was just trying to help you understand the meaning of a word of which you have no understanding in at all I've come to the conclusion that you are a complete and utter imbecile or i was fueling the troll of which i hope it was the troll one for i would feel so sorry for you if you are that dumb

 

My sincerest apologies to you and your family

 

thank you, 

your friend

 @thetrollbasher  @tazdevil33  @RunzWthScissorz ^ this guy is seriously a troll him self it does matter what you own because a fanboy would not purchase a console that he is not a fan of.. ps3 fagboys will not purchase a xbox 360 and xbox 360 fagboys will not purchase a ps3 same for pc, pc fagboys will not purchase any console.. well it does not matter because you your self are a console fagboy and a ignorant one at that... may i direct you to the elder scrolls series please, to show you that games on the pc are just a lil if not alot more fun and the fact that pc games now a days are controller supported and steam releasing the big picture you can game just a comfortably as you can playing console that and pc games aren't always 60 dollars or steam releases alot of sales :P
