When GTA V comes to PC, do you plan to buy it full price, or wait for a sale?

Why would I buy the same game twice?
Such is your fate.

I don't even really want the game... if it went cheap enough on a steam sale I'd think about it just to play it for an hour or two and then probably never touch it again...

If I really REALLY want the game, I buy it the first chance I have money to spend on it (which may or may not be when it goes on sale for 25% off or whatever)...If I've been really anticipating the game I might buy it preorder, but that's rare nowadays.

Anyone who enjoys GTA games and doesn't buy it full price is ******** cheapskate and is the reason why PC gets picked last like a fat kid in gym class.

No, the reason PC gets picked last is because dumbasses buy GTA V on consoles and when R* releases it for PC, they buy it on PC too.

I acknowledge your point but the majority of devs are not focused on double dipped sales, like you say.

If they were, the majority of PC ports would be delayed like GTA 4 and GTA 5. But.....They aren't.

I wasn't talking about other devs. I was talking about Rockstar.

It would have made more sense to make that clear since you were replying to my statement that was obviously touching on why PC gets picked last in general for big budget games.

Also, I love how so many people go out of there way to post how there have zero interest in the game.

The game is amazing for a GTA game and as I play it on the PS3 I imagine all the potential it will have on PC. The graphics suck. They do. It was a given at this point in the consoles lifecycle. The gameplay and missions however, are really fun and the map itself is really impressive.

People will be posting ENB enhanced photos of this game 5 years from now as a benchmark for photo realistic graphics, just like GTA 4. Except the overall feel will still be fun 5 years from now.

Full price, looking forward to playing it again in 1080p with 60fps and AA on. Probably will have got it to 100% by that time, but still.

I'd do it for RDR too, Rockstar. Just in case you are listening.
Thank you for saving gaming and for giving us Steam, Gabe Newell

Nope, not going to buy the same game twice, by the time I'm done with this game and feel burn out, I'll move on to the next game, so PC gamers can have what's left if they ever get it.

I'm not that interested in GTA5, but I may pick it up if it's cheap and a good port.

The big difference is when a console gamer buys a cheap game it is most likely used, Making gamespot make all the money. When people buy stuff on sale on steam developers still make most of the money. That's one thing console gamers need to learn.

That option would be to not post and not vote.

I wasn't aware that gamespot was more than a website.

(Of course you meant Gamestop and were just having a dyslexic moment).
