Console Grand Theft Auto V in September

Rockstar Games announces a September 17th release date for the console editions of Grand Theft Auto V, apologizing for the delay to the open-world action sequel, and saying: "trust us, it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require." No announcement has yet been made about a PC edition of the game, but for reference, a Windows version of Grand Theft Auto IV was only first announced a few months after the console editions shipped.

I buy generic cereal... Because I'd rather get 1 1/2 pounds for $3-4 instead of 12 ounces in a fancy box. The minute difference in taste is not worth throwing that much money away.

In any case, that is really a terrible analogy for the console vs. PC debate. If console games were always half price for only slightly worse graphics/controls/etc. because they don't spend more than the cost of production on advertising, I WOULD BE A CONSOLE GAMER. Barring the increased cost of wanting to have the horsepower for all the graphical bells and whistles, PC gaming can actually be cheaper than consoles. With so much competition in digital distribution these days (not to mention the admirable few publishers who still do the $40 and $50 base price point on PC) the same game that costs $60 on a console can cost you $10-30 less.
