Max Payne 3 was great.

Thats fair Enough.... But beyond the Story Max Payne 1 and 2 were actually worse than Max Payne 3.

I don't know, maybe Rockstar wants to only offer their games to people who would buy them and not..."borrow" for an extended period of time?

Played it on consoles, it would be nice for a PC release but that boat is getting ready to sail and R* might miss it.

Who cares .? Witcher 3 makes that game look like trash . They can keep that overrated game on consoles but still there is no doubt that the game will land on PS4 , Xbox One and PC later this year .

Okay so based on the fact that Witcher 3 is better graphics, GTA V is trash? Eh not so good logic there. I, for one, as a PC gamer would love GTA V to be released on PC with all the modding possibilities. But of course it can never be as good as a game as TW3 because grafix right?

My friend . At no point I mentioned graphics . Witcher 3 is RPG , which means non linear quests , better lore , better story , more character customization , huge world where you can enter almost every house (like first two games) , challenging gameplay , epic ending to amazing series PLUS graphics and PC being lead platform . They also treat their customers better , unlike Rockstar that made billions yet implemented microtransactions in GTA Online . Both are completely different games and we can't compare them but when it comes to world , The Witcher 3 is much more richer , thanks to lore and background story .

They'll release all three versions at once later this year. What a massive windfall that game has been and will continue to be for R*.

It's different. Can you explore a fantasy orientated world in GTA V? No. But can you steal a car in Witcher? Nope. Both games are different so it's objective. TW3 does not make GTA V look like trash. Story is story, they are totally different also...

As I said my friend "We can't compare them" . For gamers like myself who love story driven games , if we had to choose between two games (and only had money to buy one game) , we won't go for GTA .

TC, relax it'll come on PC my bet is it'll release alongside the XB1/PS4 versions of the game.

#77 Posted by Roler42 (841 posts) -

Meh, if it comes to PC, I will welcome it, if it doesn't? well, I aint gonna lose sleep over it and we're not excactly short on sandbox games for the PC

Not to mention: Rockstar is most likely too busy milking console gamers with the microtransactions in GTA Online (PC gamers are less likely to waste money on microtransactions since GTA V would most likely get modded into oblivion)

Also... I love how the more ignorant console gamers throw the piracy card around when they forget that: http://www.cinemablend.com/games/GTA-5-Xbox-360-Has-Been-Leaked-Torrents-59065.html Console gamers don't respect release dates and are usually the first to pirate games before it even hits shelves :)

RDR's coding was all messed up for porting over to PC otherwise they would have. It would have been a good business decision which is always the only decision.

It does. The funny thing is that nintendo has the funds to do such a thing--it is something I can see the company doing at some point in the near future. I'm surprised they haven't acquired sega.

Every GTA game has been on PC. GYAV will be at some point too. Glad I didn't have to wait.

#83 Posted by KungfuKitten (21401 posts) -

They are probably hoping for people to buy the game twice. Stopped caring by now. The game wasn't out of this world and I bet there won't be good mod support.

#84 Posted by 001011000101101 (4094 posts) -

I guess Rock Star games only care about cheap consoles these days, thus completely forgetting who helped them get to where they are today. The Grand Theft Auto games started out on the PC and us PC gamers stayed loyal all the way up to IV. And what do we get? NOTHING. Me and my awesome gamer friends often talk about this issue during lunch break. The issue of game studios not paying enough attention to the PC platform that is. Like everyone else, we're disgusted. Disgusted by this industry.

So what can us, the consumers, do about this? Well I don't know. My gaming friends don't know. No one knows. The gaming industry is doomed. Over and out.

If they would buy Rockstar they would go bankrupt short after.

And sega has a lot of PC studios, what would Nintendo want with that ?

Why is it assumed that PC gamers restrict themselves to one platform? I, like many others, prefer PC but have GTA on the Xbox. The only benefit to GTA on PC at this point would be mods, which is one hell of a benefit seeing what happened to GTA IV with mods

My friend owns Xbox 360 and even he stopped playing GTA V because of frame rate issues and long loading times when switching between characters . We started a new business together and he plans to return to PC gaming and awaits PC version of it . According to survey 58% PC gamers own at least one console , so they can play multiplatforms on their consoles but they still want games like GTA V on PC because they are not corporate slaves and want to get better experience on their PCs .

Yup. GTA V has the most disgusting frame rate I've ever seen. It's like 20 some frames and it's very hard to put up with. Beyond that though, you have to admit it's quite the feat considering it's working with shitty hardware. The initial loading screen is a solid minute or two. The console version of GTA V is simply shit and I doubt Rockstar would limit the amazing potential of that game to 20fps, 2 minute loading screens, massive popin and shit textures

Ignore him he's retarded. Hardware and software sales have been having massive gains since 08. It's prebuilt PC's that are going down because everyone builds now.

Sorry to disappoint you but more and more people are building their own rigs instead of buying pre build PCs . nVIDIA sold more GTX cards in last few years then they ever did in history . PC gaming made over 24 billion USD revenue last year which is more than 2012 , which was more than 2011 , which was more than 2010 . Get your facts right .

http://www.dualshockers.com/2014/04/12/developers-explain-why-pc-gaming-has-never-been-stronger-24-billion-dollars-yearly-revenue-estimated/

It is fastest growing platform in the world right now

http://www.slashgear.com/ea-ceo-calls-pc-the-fastest-growing-game-platform-20239643/

Just in 3 months Steam user added 10 million new gamers , just when new consoles were about to come out . .

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-01-15-steam-currently-has-75-million-active-users

I never read that about Steam user, but I can definitely see that. Before the new consoles were released I would see like 3 million people on Steam and now I typically see around 6+ million at one time. That's not including the people playing LoL, WoW, SC2, BF4. and other big titles not using Steam.

Could be because of piracy rates on PC. Don't blame Rockstar, blame Bittorrent. If you pirate, blame yourself.

I think it depends. If you're a casual who doesn't really game, of course you would buy a tablet over a clunky desktop. But with the recent availability of info on building from youtube ect, people who would have bought an Alienware are definately building now. That and the fact that new PC gamers are building from the start, and not buying prebuilt

#97 Posted by MBirdy88 (8994 posts) -

As most people have said, the logical conclusion is:

1) They are working on "Next-Gen" versions.

2) Still developing a stable multiplayer experience.

I'm sure PS4/X1/PC will get it at the same time... however this means its later than usual for PC. (but then this might mean it will be better than previous crap ports)

Just because they aren't buying PC's from Acer doesn't mean people aren't buying desktops from Alienware. Yes building a PC is a lot easier now than it once was but that won't stop people buying pre-built gaming rigs. People who want to game without having to think etc.

Here's something you don't see a lot on SW, facts

https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2012/09/22/gaming-piracy-separating-fact-from-fiction

Piracy on the PC is one of the biggest misconceptions. It's so much more convenient now to just buy a game for 5 dollars on Steam noone really bothers anymore.

Read the article, the argument can be made that piracy on consoles is worse.

Yup...BUT game sales have went up for the PC platform in the recent year dramatically. Which is why I believe most games coming out this year and next are multiplats. Hopefully, my fellow PC gamers will continue to purchase games instead of pirate so we get even more quality games.
