Grand Theft Auto V in March?

An email from Amazon to customers who have preordered Grand Theft Auto V says the console edition of the open world action sequel is due on March 26, 2013, reports Guru3D, where they reproduce the mail showing a March 27th delivery date. This is unconfirmed, and historically release dates revealed by retailers have been a mixed bag in terms of accuracy, though it bears noting that that date would fit the game's previously announced spring release window. They also say "The PC version is still scheduled a few month [sic] later," though there is no indication of where that tidbit originated. Thanks HARDOCP.

everything shown for GTAV is a mess of low polygon models, low resolution textures and poor quality lighting and they won't show any gameplay videos.

Well, that's all that will run on the consoles. In order to get the game to play on 47 year old hardware, they have to cut corners somewhere. There's always the chance that they'd release some slightly better looking stuff for a PC version. (if it exists.)

If Rockstar cared about PC gamers

Why would Rockstar care about PC gamers? GTA, GTA2 and GTA:London sold like half a million copies combined. GTA4 by itself sold 22+ million copies on the consoles alone.

I'm all for bitching at a developer when they make it big on the PC and then go console-only (like Epic), but I'm not sure that's really a valid argument for Rockstar. They didn't make it big until GTA3, and that was a console game. Everything they've done since then has been console-only or at least console primary.

Rockstar made it big on the consoles. Not on the PC.
