I'm very curious to hear R*s actual reasoning behind this, because I find it a little hard to understand tbh.

http://www.extremetech.com/computing/145465-pc-sales-are-in-decline-and-in-an-alarming-way-for-the-first-time

Winter is coming bish

What? That's from January of 2013 lol. Since the "next gen" consoles have released hardware and software sales have went up dramatically for PC.

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.

No, everyone who would of bought a pre-built or a laptop is now buying tablets.

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

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.

I don't believe he is saying no one will be buying pre built machines. Just that it is more popular to build it yourself atm.

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 pc games sold more then rockstar would focus more on pc , its simple as that, the real money to be made is on the consoles

Many PC gamers also own consoles. Many of those would rather have GTA V on PC, but on the other hand they can't wait and so buy it at launch.

So many PC gamers end up getting it on consoles, perhaps even skip the PC version because it is released so late. So what I'm trying to say is: if Rockstar released the PC version the same day as on consoles, there would be more PC sales than when they release the PC version a year later.

I knew it.

Max Payne 3 was gonna be their last PC game. I'm convinced that the only way to change that is if Valve paid them to continue supporting the PC.

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

Piracy is keeping a lot of developers away from PC these days . As this GDC survey of game developers show .

There's a rumor, and yes it sounds crazy, that Nintendo delved into their 18+ billion and bought Rockstar in mid gta5 development.

Hahahahahaha

yeah that does sound crazy.

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.

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 would Rockstar go bankrupt?

Nintendo would want sega for the IPs. I do think Nintendo may actually acquire sega.

Rockstar is going to miss the boat on this one if it's not released soon.

Nothing about what's going on in regards to GTAV on PC is unprecedented or unsurprising. R* has a history of releasing the GTA games months after the console versions.

Buy more games and you won't have this issue. Fact is companies make more money from multiplats on consoles 99 percent of the time.

@Cloud_imperium: I've actually saved so many of your posts for future reference. Thanks man. Regardless, throwing facts at the vocal minority of PS4 users who believe it's superior because they have never tried PC is a waste. They'll simply ignore your facts and counter with more "lol GTA PC is dying"

App Store fits under smartphones/tablets. IOS refers directly to games on Steam that are available for Mac and PC. You should probably learn to read. Literacy does you wonders.

I wouldn't be surprised if GTA5 never gets released on PC. If that happens, R* will probably completely ditch PC as one of their platforms.

I think pc should forget about Rockstar after crappy ports they did in the past.

I would hate to still be waiting. It's been so long. I could have waited, and yes it could perform better on my PC, but boy I'm glad I've already been through it. It's a great game and I got used to the technical flaws.

I dont know what you call that laggy mess that showed up on console with pop in, bad draw distance, bad textures, long loading times, jaggies everywhere and low resolution- I'm sure there was a quality game buried somewhere there but that's not a quality gaming experience.

Sounds like that green eyed monster has been munching on them sour grapes again...

Announcement is just around the corner.Expect DX11 features and overall better graphical fidelity with better draw distance,shadows,AO,AA and other eye candies. The very first trailer and some early promotional screnshots were taken in the early PC build of the game.

I know that, there were still plenty of rumours and it was spotted for sale on websites or had a PC -DVD logo on a box shot or something. hermits were convinced anyway.

Rockstar isn't bethesda. They don't continually put out shit for consumers to swallow. Rockstar is know for quality games. GTA IV on PC was a fluke.
