NVIDIA Unleaks GTA5 PC Comment - New Trailers Released

Two new trailers are available for Grand Theft Auto V, revealing the gubernatorial campaigns for two candidates. There's a clip showing off the Jock Cranley Campaign and another showing the Sue Murry Campaign. Also, Forbes has a statement from NVIDIA attempting to put the horse back in the barn after spilling some beans about the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto V. They claim this "was made with the intent of expressing enthusiasm for the games industry in general," and that "NVIDIA does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability." This may very well be true, but it certainly sounds like full-on spin. Here's the full statement:

“Please note, during our Thursday’s earnings call, our investor relations team provided a list of important games that gamers are looking forward to on PC this fall, and included Grand Theft Auto V on that list. This statement was made with the intent of expressing enthusiasm for the games industry in general, and was not intended to represent specific knowledge possessed by NVIDIA. NVIDIA does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability. We deeply regret the error.”

For those wondering why GTAV is not coming to PS4/XB1 anytime soon, consider that they started development of this game years ago, before those consoles were even close to being finalized. Plus, if your game has the potential to sell 15 million copies on consoles, why would you release it on consoles that have a 3 million-ish install base at maximum by year's end? That's not even "bad business" - that's just stupid.

Simply put, a console at launch is at its weakest and most fragile state: the install base has to build from zero, and game publishers don't want to waste money putting games on it just trying to build the install base. After all, that's not their responsibility, it's the responsibility of the people who made the console. Even the console manufacturers want to hold back their biggest franchises, which is why there is no Halo, Gears, Uncharted, or Gran Turismo coming to the new consoles anytime soon. Instead, we get franchises that are celebrated but aren't stellar sellers - like inFAMOUS, Killzone, and Forza. Console manufacturers have to look like they're coming out strong while actually doing the exact opposite.
