Do you think if there wasn't Piracy there'd be more PC ports?

I mean I'd love to see Red Dead Redemption but Rockstar didn't bother because they knew people would just pirate it instead of buying it. It was one of the most pirated games 2010. Putting it on PC would have opened the doors for mod shy console owners to download the game for free.

Yes. I'm sorry for the developers but its amazing what you can pirate on a PC. Literally get thousands of games for free

Implying people don't pirate console games

What a joke...not one tear of sympathy will come from me when GTA V is raking in the dough easily.

While I may not agree with your opinion, I will defend to the death your right to have it.

So why'd they put out pc versions of LA Noire and Max Payne 3 then?

Because those weren't made by Rockstar San Diego, who made RDR, and have made all of ONE PC game before, VS the other parts of Rockstar that made those.

Basically because there are multiple studios called Rockstar and too many fools fail to understand that what one does means NOTHING for the others.

All the best games are already on PC.

Yep. There is a stigma right or wrong about it with pc. Piracy is one of those stereotypes that holds some truth but is overblown beyond recognition. A downloaded game is not necessarily a lost sale yet companies like to make up numbers to dispute this without ever having the means to legitimately test their results.
