Actually shocked GTA V is not releasing for PC

Mostly pirates probably. Have you seen some of those release groups; the game comes out one day, crack is available same day or within the week. For a title like GTAV a lot of people that would buy the game would just pirate it instead. This is reasonable.


Funny the console version has been piratable since 9/13

I'm pretty sure the game has already been up for download for a few days now.


It's a lot easier to pirate a PC game than the Iso for 360/ps3 which a lot of people are NOT willing to do.


Easier to get a xbox 360/ps3 game pirated game running once you know the process. Sometimes cracks don't work for whatever reason for pc games so no it is not a lot easier.

PC game sales are through the roof, that's why nowadays previously console-specific developers are also releasing their games for PC.


Most of those sales are actually just indie games.

Yea, the 10,000+ leechers for Grand Theft Auto V torrents on TPB alone certainly aren't a lot... Quit pretending PC is the problem. People are the problem. Doesn't matter which platform they prefer.

"But it's always worse on PC!"

Stop being a manbaby and stop this pointless argument in attempt to make your platform of choice look superior when compared to the others.

Hah, I like that term, and will now substitute it for "manchild" in my brilliant retorts.

It has to do with PC gamers deciding to spend significantly more reasonable amounts on their games than console gamers.


There we go

CATS. That's about it honestly...

The game is huge and has a huge budget. Most likely it would have been too costly to make the PC version at the same time or would have taken too much time. They finish the console version and then they have a team focus on the porting. Rockstar will also be busy with GTA online and any other projects they have too.

Notice how the Wii U didn't get this game either.

It's just a matter of waiting and hoping for the best.


Did somebody just try to prove a point by GTA not being on the Wii U?

If you said 3DS, MAYBE I would understand. But never a family-focused home console.

because R*. thats the way theyve always been with gta. get the console versions out first to make top dollar then other platforms 6-12months later and hopefully bring in new fans and double dippers. thats basically the way its always been since 3.

More peasants trying to claim this is the game of all games on their machines that sport at most a whopping 512 mb of ram *mind asplodes*....back to reality I can definitely wait for it and if the game never comes to PC screw it one less customer *shrugs*.

Yep and it has to be in this order because the pc version will stomp all over the console version in so many ways.
