What are the odds? I mean seeing as Red Dead Redemption never made it to PC, do you guys think GTA V will? I know that L.A.Noire is coming, but that's not a game originally developed by Rockstar, so that might not mean anything. And considering that it didn't sell well, Rockstar could be trying to bring in a bit more cash from it. But GTA V will obviously sell like hot cakes, so that factor won't pop up.

Max Payne 3 is coming to PC simultaneously with the console versions, so there's a chance GTA V will also. If not, it's pretty certain that GTA V will eventually come to the PC; there is money to be made.

Every other main GTA game has been on the PC so I don't see why not. I'd expect it will be a few months after the console versions as usual though.

GTA V will get a PC port, question is when.

Yes, however i could see the porting process being outsourced considering how valuable Rockstar North's time is.

I heard they outsourced the job for the GTA IV PC port... ...To a monkey.

I would be surprised if it didn't.

Although I may just get it for the PS3 anyway, considering how awful the GTAIV port was.

This pretty much is the reality of things. All GTA games are on PC, GTA5 will be no different. The only question is if it'll be simultaneous release or delayed.
#9 Posted by LordRork (2690 posts) -

Typically, the PC version of GTA games has been up to a year after its console debut. So don't get your hopes up over seeing it any time soon...

If it's like the port of GTA IV, I hope not.
#11 Posted by Grey_Eyed_Elf (4079 posts) -
I'm sure it will and chances are it will probably be a bad port with horrible optimisation and will demand a i7 2600k and GTX 580 3GB to run smoothly. I honestly don't know after GTA4 and the refusal to port Red Dead Redemption to PC... chances are their engine is too difficult and time consuming to port to PC and with poor sales on PC chances are its may not be worth while for them.

As long as they do a better job than GTAIV i'll be happy.

#13 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -
If it plays as crappy as GTA4 did on PC, then they can keep it.

it better get a day 1 PC release!!

Last PC port was thrown to Rockstar Toronto im sure.

Besides im rooting for North as you do they are the local dev's for me and i get my nightbus home from nights out just outside their offices in Edinburgh xD.

They will probably do what they did with the GTA IV port, copy and paste the console files onto a DVD, put it into a PC and hope it runs. Worst port ever.
#17 Posted by SaltyMeatballs (25158 posts) -
No Red Dead, but then they port La Noire... strange, but I think it will be ported... hopefully it's a good port this time.

LA Noire does make more sense on PC than Red Dead did though.

To be fair, it's not that strange. The PC has traditionally been more of a home to adventure games than it has to action adventure-y games.

Anyway, every other GTA game has been on the PC, so the next one might as well be.

#20 Posted by freedomfreak (42921 posts) -

Yes,no,probably,maybe..It's GTA..so probably.

On release?probably,maybe,no..Who knows..

I hope its at the same time, I would like to get it on PC and not have to wait. I'd probably break down and get it for console then. :P

Or at least have something worth waiting for the PC release.Last time they said stuff about great PC exclusive features that were crap

#23 Posted by XileLord (3777 posts) -

Probably and it'll more than likely be badly optimized and full of problems.

#24 Posted by SRTtoZ (4800 posts) -

I know R* isnt fond of the PC because of the insane amount of GTA that gets pirated but at some point I am sure it will get it...not release day, but somtime after.

Was PC version released afterwards for IV? I remember going to the midnight release for the console version. I wouldn't wait for PC version of V, I more than likely would pick it in addition to the console version.
#26 Posted by HaloinventedFPS (4736 posts) -

La Noire is only a few days away on PC

lets see how good of a port it is, still it will most likely sell bad on PC, Rockstar will blame piracy of course

still hoping on RDR for pc

SRTtoZ

it has nothing to do with piracy, its because the deal they made with Sony was why they delayed it (most likely the same reason for RDR), piracy is a scapegoat, GTA4 sold bad on PC because it was delayed a year after the console versions and is known as one of the worst ports of all time, if you think piracy was the cause of poor sales, you are a fool

#28 Posted by ShadowDeathX (10765 posts) -
They could actually release it on time, who knows.
#29 Posted by fusionhunter (2009 posts) -

Eh I'd say it probably will.

Which is why Lazlow Jones, when asked if RDR would be released for PC said and I quote "Well maybe eventually but we like to make money off of platforms that arent pirated to death first".


Whos the fool?

Yes, but how well optimized it will be remains a mystery.

There's also a rumor that the main protaganist is Tommy Vercetti.

LA Noire recommends a 580.

It will probably be Donald Love.
#40 Posted by SPYDER0416 (16736 posts) -

Its likely to come later consider how Rockstar seems to feel about the PC. They waited 6 months for the PC version of GTA IV and did a pretty bad port job, and we never even got Red Dead Redemption so who knows.

Their recommendations are stupid. AMD's recommended is a 6850 but the Nvidia is a 580. I can't see how it could possibly take that much unless they really overhaul the visuals.

In other words, its unlikely to be anyone from the past. I'm guessing the joke here is that Donald Love is a semi legitimate businessman who doesn't even get dirty himself and would never be a GTA protagonist, so he's just as likely to be the protagonist as Tommy right?

Unless you really think it will be him, then...

way too much hate for the PC version of 4 here. imho its a pretty good port. instead of just slapping the console stuff on a disc and shipping it off R* actually put the PCs extra grunt to some use. yes it was buggy (now sorted) but it also scaled really well with PC hardware. PC gamers conatantly complain about devs just copying and pasting the console game over and multiplats not putting the PCs hardware to use. yet when a dev does do it they get berrated because it doesnt run smoothly on a dual core system at 1080P at 60FPS. its either/or people...cant have both. it is the best version of the game. i only have 4 complaints with the PC version. 1) all the crud you need to install with it (some of it removed with the latest patch). 2) lack of proper mod support. its a shame R* dont release some modding tools for the game. 3) limiting settings based on amount of VRAM (easy to remove that problem though). 4) the UI is poor in places. it did launch with problems but it also launched with a lot of upgrades from the console version. it also got excellent post release support from R* where they even upgraded stuff with patches (like shadows). i hope GTA5 does get similar treatment. the last thing i want is a copy/paste job. make it scalable, give lots of graphics options, bring lots of upgrades...good stuff. maybe bring in DX11 features, improve the lighting and shadows and so on (icehancer type upgrades would be kewl). if bugs can be squashed also then all the better but i wont complain too much if its a bit buggy as long as its a proper port. just squish those bugs with patches asap post launch.
#45 Posted by Wasdie (50578 posts) -

I think the sales for GTA 4 proved that they can sell the PC verson well. I hope they put some time into optimizing it so it actually runs on the average system decently.

Good port? You call this good:

The game thinks I have 2GB 460s when I only have 1GB...

your going to call it up on an issue so minor? oh no it thinks you have twice the memory you have...poor you. end of the world stuff right there. hell most people hated that feature as it didnt allow them to put the settings as high as they wanted yet your complaining that it thinks you have too much? this minor issue is a game breaker is it?

#48 Posted by jedikevin2 (5246 posts) -
GTA4 actually was a good pc game. It was the very top end where it had bad optimization problems. It scaled really well, ton of graphical options, and actually ran really well and far outpace what they had did on the console version. Still very odd peolpe trash on the game when we've see true pc ports in forms of supreme commander 2, splinter cell games, Rage, etc etc. Game did come out buggy as many games this generation do on all platforms but man it ran nicely.
#49 Posted by R4gn4r0k (17469 posts) -

No platforms have been announced yet so for all we know it could be PC exclusive.

Ah who am I kidding, all I hope is that they hire a decent PC team for this.

Any PC port without AA is crap. Sorry.
