GTA5 Details Leaked?

Some details emerged on the GameSpot forums that allegedly reveal specifics about the characters and story in Grand Theft Auto V, the next installment in the open-world action series, said to have been spilled by a disgruntled former employee. The post was deleted, but VG247 notes it can still be found on the Google cache. According to the post, the game will be shown in playable form at E3 this year, and the game is expected in May 2013.

You realize this is ROCKSTAR, right? IF there is a PC version, it'll be a giant piece of shit.

Not sure why you are bagging on Rockstar so heavily. Granted, the GTA IV port wasn't amazing, but it was generally pretty decent. Certainly a better experience than the few times I saw in on consoles. Getting mad at them for the long delay in the port time, I can see, but calling their ports (and III, VC and SA were all great) shitty is pretty inaccurate, imo.

Sadly, their ports have gone downhill since SA. Bully, Manhunt 2, GTA4 and LA Noire were all buggy and poorly optimized. To make things worse, these ports were all delayed extensively so there's no excuse for their lousy quality. Hell, the PC versions weren't even announced until long after the console versions were released. Granted, these shoddy ports were still better than the console versions but only barely and definitely not up to par with PC standards.

I sincerely hope that Max Payne 3 and GTA5 are actually stable, well-optimized ports. I don't even need DX11 support or any fancy features. I just want the games to be stable, run at 60 FPS and work well with mouse and keyboard.

And I'd much rather do most of my gaming on a couch and have zero interest in buying and maintaining a second PC to hook up to my television, especially when so many good games do not come out for the PC, so few PC games do split-screen, and having to say "hey, hang on, guys, my PC is booting, we'll be playing in a few minutes" isn't very appealing.

"So many good games?" Really? Like what? Halo? Overrated. Gears of War? Overrated. Uncharted? Overrated. Infamous? Overrated. Madden? Not even sure if that comes out for PC anymore but in any case, overrated. There are some good games that don't come out for PC but the vast majority do and they're better on the PC 99% of the time. There are also some good PC games that don't come out on consoles. Truth is, consoles have been getting fewer big exclusives over recent years. It's not like the 90's, where most games were platform-exclusive. This is the multiplatform age and in this age, PC is king.

Your other complaints are equally silly. Just buy an extra long HDMI cable to output your PC video to your TV. And are you really complaining about boot times? You have to boot up your console too, which isn't exactly instantaneous. Then you have to find the disc, insert it, wait for it to be detected and launch the game. Then you have to wait for the game to actually load (after you get past the unskippable legal screens and logos), an inherently longer process than on PC due to the slow read speeds of discs. Then you have to load a level and wait again. If you left your PC in sleep mode, woke it up and double-clicked the game's icon, I guarantee you'd get into actual gameplay faster than you would on a console.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: consoles appeal to the slothful and apathetic (in regards to gaming, at least).
