GTA4 PC Rumor

Overclocking.net has a photo of a magazine cover seemingly confirming a PC edition of Grand Theft Auto IV, which some consider to be an inevitability (eventually). The source is PC Gamer Malaysia, which is probably not sufficient to dislodge this from the rumor category.

btw: GTA:SA is now only 9.99 at most stores. Pretty decent price for the multiplayer aspect!

I am going to buy the PC version a few months after it comes out - there isn't a lot of re-play-ability to GTA4 to have me buy it again so soon.

But, once the communities get a hold of it, the MP functions will start to flourish. Look how popular SA is....

And the eventual "bitch and moan" will be that the PC version didn't sell as many copies as the console and ergo PC gaming is dying because PC games are easier to pirate...

I can't recall Rockstar taking that line previously.

I fully expect GTA4's PC:console sales ratio to be substantially worse than for San Andreas. However it will be due to the increased proportion of PC gamers who also have either console and already own it, and Rockstar will be well aware.

Actually I won't be surprised if PC piracy:sales will be pretty high for the game, for the same reason above. People will be less inclined to buy it a second time. With some informed analysis it could be a fairly decent indicator of the PC sales lost to console sales.

I'm not certain whether I would have opted for the 360 or PC version. PC has been substantially superior in previous versions thanks primarily to higher resolution and extra dev time (plus modding). I suspect the console convenience, pad and confidence of being fully playable would have trumped the mods in my case. I can think of plenty games where it would go the other way.

However, everyday that passes between the console release and the PC release, more people lose their interest.

Which is EXACTLY why you won't hear anything about it until MSFT 6 month plan is over. Said this before, but I am sure the game will release exactly 1 year after the console release.

Edit: Wanted to add that this game is likely to have some hardcore DRM.

Nothing makes me want to buy a game more than hardcore DRM... if only there was a way of keeping it secret until everybody in the world already bought it.

World - "why can't i install this more than once... hey! there's restrictive DRM on this"
game publisher - "haha too late now! no returns! MUWAHAHA!"

Has anybody told publishers that DRM turns INFORMED people off of releases yet?

Hopefully they might consider a digital distribution deal when the game eventually reaches the PC, maybe even with Valve, just to fuck with EA some more

PC Gamer Malaysia has a forumthread discussing the lastest issue :
http://www.velocity-media.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=20327

This is just PC Gamer saying it will happen - There have been no official statement from Rockstar.

I found bugs but nothing that ruined the game, even in a minor way but please feel free to inform me of some. I found bugs but nothing that ruined the game, even in a minor way but please feel free to inform me of some.

Did I say the bugs were showstoppers? They were minor annoyances, which at worst caused me to retry a mission or two. The worst one I encountered was a freeze while loading a mission. There were also a few AI bugs.

considering this forum is a breeding pit of jadedness and negative viewpoints.

Someone has to have them in this world of 60-99% review scores.

Seems reasonably reliable considering it's a PC gamer mag. But who knows.

Purportedly someone called the magazine and it's just a preview off of the console versions, written with the assumption of a PC release.

Be careful what you say on the forums Fion, or else you'll be branded a 'fanboi'


No clue why I had 'because' in there earlier.

If it is, I cant wait. I'm sure it'll be brilliant on the PC if it's sufficiently well ported, and if it isn't I know modders will improve it.

From the few friends I have who have this on consoles, I guess it really pushes the Xbox360 hardware to the limit (which seems to happen a lot lately.) So it should look brilliant on the PC considering the developers will be able to push their engine to the max.

Cant wait

Edit: Wanted to add that this game is likely to have some hardcore DRM. Considering previous GTA titles are amongst the most torrented games in history lol. Also probably why it's taken longer and longer for each GTA release to hit PC.

So these bugs you talk of, what are the big show stopper then? (both gta3:SA(PC) and gta4(360)

I found bugs but nothing that ruined the game, even in a minor way but please feel free to inform me of some.

If the game is coming out on the PC I am gonna buy it and pray to hell they don't leave the game with unfixed bugs like they did with San Andreas.

Considering all the bugs I encountered while playing the Xbox 360 version, I wouldn't hold your breath.
