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.

Reread most of that and tell me how you didn't just agree with me at the end but you frosted your response with your tidbits with Max payne 3. Who gives a fuck about the in game videos, seriously. As long as they aren't 320x240 bink's then I could care less. ESP when we are arguing the engine being optimized.. not whether or not the cinematics lead wants to push that event off on to a prerendered vid or not.
The videos were rendered at console level quality, with low resolution textures, no anti-aliasing and were heavily compressed. It was incredibly jarring going from 2560x1600 maxed out to ultra-shitty console quality and it soured the entire experience for me - especially considering that the game was 30GB in size. There simply was no excuse for such low quality videos, especially when they'd have looked great rendered in-game (something easily possible on PC).

Also please let me know if you have any evidence that the PC version is being worked on or not being worked on right now. ( we know there is a year delay between releases, but don't assume they have NOBODY on it right now. )
They've publicly stated that there is no PC release currently planned, so your assumption goes against what Rockstar has said publicly.

BTW La Noire and Max Payne were fine with me. Not a moment passed where I was thinking about how shitty the port was.
You thought LA Noire was an acceptable port? For starters it was limited to 30fps, which is absolutely unacceptable. And the graphics looked like ass. MP3 looked decent but there were issues with the gameplay and the FMV; it wasn't terrible but it could have been a lot better.

You should direct your hate to a couple other companies who don't just crap on the PC, they downright make PR statements assaulting the platform.
Rockstar treats PC gamers with contempt, so they absolutely deserve the criticism I have directed at them. There may be worse companies but that's like ranking serial killers by their depravity when they're all fucking sickos.
