... they released the game on PC.

It would be worth it just to have the bragging rights.

You mean if they released it on the same day? There is no way the pc version alone will sell 1 billion's worth of copies.

They hit 800 million on the first day, and I think that they might have hit 1 billion or at least come extremely close to it on the first day had it been on PC.

This. A businessman with long-term views realizes more money in the long run is much more important than "bragging rights"

Or those with a pc able to run the game would never have bought the console version and went on torrent find the game ?

I'm pretty sure Rockstar is not releasing pc version at the ame time for a reason and that reason is probably maxing the profit.

We are pc gamers so we have enough money to buy consoles too. I have a ps3 and bought the game on ps3, I would have bought it for pc it I could and I think many players got it for consoles because it wasnt available on pc.

To be honest I dont think pc sale would have boosted by a lot the revenue. In the long run, yes, for the 1st day, no.

And I think its stupid to stop yourself from getting/playing a game because you wait for a pc version. I was waiting for this game a long time, I got it on ps3 and will gladly get it on pc when the time comes. But I dont want to limit myself at pc gaming because its superior. Of course pc gaming is superior but it should not prevent you to enjoy gaming on a console with other games
