GS News - GTAV gameplay, PS4 preorders gone, Red Dead for PC?

GameStop isn’t taking any more PS4 preorders, GTAV gameplay video is a hit, Crytek’s “not-QTEs” in Ryse and is Rockstar bringing more games to PC?

Let me first state that i am not only a guy but heterosexual as well.

And I swear i never want to see another woman presenting anything of geek interest ever again because men ruined it for them. I didn't think GS would ever sink this low but there it is. Are most comments here talking about the news? (as they would be if a man had presented it) Of course not. Theyr'e talking about how allegedly "cute" this girl is or how they watched this video only to look at her and i knew they would before i even scrolled down. 

I don't know her qualifications, it's possible that she actually enjoys and has always played video games and is very qualified, but this is irrelevant, because she is CLEARLY presenting these news based on her look and appeal to the average geek gamer. And the crowd of drooling geek idiots are falling for it and want more. 

Let's be clear here, this is no different than putting a voluptuous tight leather clad blonde girl on a Harley. No, she is not dressed in revealing clothes striking suggestive poses. Because she is catering to the geek crowd. Where the blonde on a Harley only has to look sexually suggestive and available,  all the "geek" presenter has to do is smile and look "cute" and talk about video games. In my view though, it is as sexist and disgusting.  

While it's clearly obvious "Jess" knows her role here and is willfully playing it, which is objectionable, this isn't women's fault that things are this way. Men don't give a s about a woman's qualifications, all they care about is if she's nice to look at. Qualified or not, a woman in ANY line of work WILL be used depending on her sex appeal (or lack thereof) and it's only because of men's attitude and constant need to only relate to women in a sexual way that it has become impossible for a woman to be respected for her qualifications and opinions. So what is there to do? Well i don't know but personally, i give up. I don't want to ever see another woman telling me about video games ever again. Not because I don't want them there, but because men have proven they can't be there unless they are somehow deemed attractive. Women have lost here, it doesn't matter what they have to say. 

Oh yeah and....F you gamespot. Seriously, F you.

The people who don't get involved in the "PC vs Console" debate are the people who own and play both. They are happy people.

I was here for Jess as always but oddly enough I paid attention this time. Red Dead for PC? Really? So the petition stuff do works after all =] Better late (even like hundreds of years) than never. You don't need to wage war on console versus Computer, PC graphics and gameplay speaks for himself for a very long time.

No more Xbone preorders from Best Buy, either. I haven't heard anything about Amazon, but that's where i put dibs on my PS4. Also, I licked one.

Games are better on PC...their more profitable for developers and publishers on consoles...

Well, if Rockstar doesn't bring their games to PC, then I won't be getting them. It's as simple as that.

I really just want to see an oficial announcement about RDR comming to PC so I can stop worrying about those job listings at R* being just GTA V related

Let's see, GTAIV sells 10.32M units on 360, 9.77M units on PS3, and only .73M units on the PC. Yea, that seems like a great investment of time and money.

Yes guys it's a pretty girl, don't shit your pants they are everywhere if you just leave your parents basement.

Now as for the news PC gamers have been waiting for RDR forever now so just give it up Rockstar, and GTA5 will no doubt come to PC about 6 months after it's console release. I just hope RS starts making better PC ports.

@Carton_of_milk So what if she was a overweight , fat blond chick with glasses that didnt know anything about video games?  how do we know, she might love video games. Theres chicks out there that love games. tons of them. The Sims get bought by heaps of chicks. Theres quite a few chicks that play Counter Strike to believe it or not.

But your problem is, gamespot has hired this girl because shes attractive? So what? Shes attractive, so are a billion other girls on the planet. how bout just thinking of her as a presenter , presenting sht and her job is to present news. Also why have you got something against guys being attracted to her?

@malificus1 Some of you need to get out more and maybe get laid for the first time in your lives.  That girl has a horse face with some nasty horse teeth.

@Ruukasu01 They like to claim they're the "master race" and lord above the console gamers, when in fact, it's quite lonely up there.

@mikemaj82 ... that's still 730,000 x probably an average of $30.00 = $21,900,000.00 ... if you don't think it's worth their time to earn 22M dollars, you have a strange perspective on value..

@RoachRush @Ruukasu01No we don't feel like that. I have a PS3 and a high end PC. PC gaming IS the superior experience. It doesn't mean WE feel superior. I appreciate PC gaming is less accessible, unless you're technically proficient its really best to have someone help you get into it. I have helped quite a few friends and family members get started with PC gaming and ALL of them now use PC as their preferred platform. Several have sold their consoles to fund upgrades on their PC instead of buying the next gen consoles. NONE of them have returned to full time console gaming. Console gaming is a great first step, easy to get into but limited. Step up to PC gaming...we welcome you. (Unlike the behaviour of the console elite towards the new users...)

@RoachRush @Ruukasu01 There are more games on PC than there are on consoles. There is a ridiculous number of exclusives on PC and the majority of the games on PC that are also on console run better.

@Detriiment @shinz87 Like I'm gonna waste my money on that garbage. Consoles are created to facilitate games. Not the other way around (at least that's how it should be). If you make something and then say "you can only buy this for consoles, suck it PC gamers", then that game is facilitating the consoles. That means the developer, or the publisher is missing out on revenue. I encourage everyone to not buy a console. (Fat chance lol).

@VBVCSHARP Then they won't get my my money, and I won't play any of their games, and I will no longer be a fan of Rockstar. If they still don't care, I'll work my way up until I'm rich enough to buy Rockstar and fire everyone who said they shouldn't make PC games. Then they'll care.

@tushwacker If it's a digital download @ 70% profit, my rough math says they should have made around $32 million, but they don't count digital downloads. Just boxed copies, so that's still the 22 million. Plus PC games have a long tail to their sales that console games don't have. Gamestop gets all the sales years down the line, where with digital games, the money keeps trickling in.

@Morphine_OD @mkeezay22 they're more out there than you might think, just many of them are kinda quiet about it (probably because of comments like on here..). Then there are of course the fame whores  trying to capitalize on their looks in this industry.  plenty of those too

@VBVCSHARP @Boogy32 @Detriiment @shinz87 That's the silliest comment I've seen today.

Nice try at trolling. Most PC gamers don't pirate games. Have you even heard of Steam? Desura? Origin (ugh)?

Bitch please I'm primarily a PC gamer and the only game I ever pirate was Sims 3 because I simply can't justify paying £200+.

@Boogy32 @Detriiment @shinz87 Actually, they just don't want their product offered for free on the internet to any asshole PC gamer who doesn't want to pay for the game.  Why would little Johnny the PC gamer want to pay for it when he can just go to any popular torrent site and download it for free on day 1?  Get a clue.

@drswank @Vajezus well, sometimes there are people who know more than you do. This is the case - Jess is a gamer and have been for a long time. She likes horrors and puzzles, and has a twitter where she is pretty vocal about it.

You lost your bet, idiot.
