GTA IV on PC? "No Comment"

grand-theft-auto-iv-screen.jpg

Sure, a lot of us have been happily traipsing through the playground that is GTA IV’s Liberty City since early Tuesday morning. But there’s still a large number of gamers out there still holding out for the PC version of the game. I can’t blame them really, when all the previous GTA games really had smoother graphics and more precise controls on the PC version. Sadly, they may have to wait for quite awhile, as Rockstar has only a firm “No comment” regarding a possible PC release. I’d still bet they’ll pull out a PC version around Christmastime, but for now there’s no confirmation one way or the other. In the mean time, PC gamers, this next pedestrian I run over is dedicated to you.

That’s fu*king stupid! PC is the platform where the GTA series started, they should have released GTA IV at least at the same time as consoles, if not before :evil:

Let’s hope they alter the way the controls work, because at present they would be awful on PC. The shooting/aiming controls on previous PC versions of GTA were equally as awful. Shoddy console ports ftl!

What is this? It's not it, it's ME!

Shooting was awful? WTF? I never had any problems with it. Worked perfectly.

RE: What is this? It’s not it, it’s ME!
Having to press a button to enter aiming mode is terrible design. Works well on consoles, not so well on PC. Having a crosshair permanently onscreen when a firearm is equipped and when not driving would be a lot better.

RE: MG

The Xbox version has already been pirated, about 4 days before the game was released. I don’t think piracy is the problem. Developers don’t see the PC as a profitable market. Theres more whiney 15 year olds playing consoles willing to shell out $70 for a game than there are on PC.

Umm…Dude, don’t tell me you didn’t know that you can change it in the options whether to have a permanent crosshair or that “aiming mode” one (in the PC version of GTA III and SA) :grin: :shock:

I just wanted to point something out real quick. I have noticed that a lot of stories that go on this site may get a few comments and sometimes none at all. But damnit… when it comes to a game coming out for consoles and not the PC, people start talking… a lot. I would think that developers would pick up on this but apparently they just like toying with us. All I can hope for is that the PC version will be getting some super bad ass extras that won’t be on the consoles. Because we all know that the graphics and gameplay will be far better on the PC :P

Dudes.. stop being so naive. Of course it will come on the pc, they just want people to get desperate and buy either or both of the console versions so that they get more moolah. It’s as simple as that.

“Piracy was the case.”
I think that’s how that song went, probably mistaken. :cool:

Any version of GTA VI can get pirated, it’s just takes time.
The thing is, most people who download .iso’s would find it too hard to burn a DVD or BD of the game,
as most of them are leechers that “give them nothing,
but take from them everything.”
(i.e. Close their torrent program when the game is done downloading)

But back on topic, GTA’s have gone on consoles first since GTA III.
Here’s the chart:

PC Grand Theft Auto 02/28/98 US
Ps1 Grand Theft Auto 06/30/98 US

PC Grand Theft Auto 2 09/30/99 US
Ps1 Grand Theft Auto 2 10/25/99 US

Ps2 Grand Theft Auto III 10/22/01 US
PC Grand Theft Auto III 05/20/02 US

Ps2 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10/27/02 US
PC Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 05/12/03 US

Ps2 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas 10/26/04 US
PC Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas 06/07/05 US

You see where the first one came out on PC first, but then 4 months later, the Ps1 version showed up.
Next, GTA2 came out on PC first, then 1 month later, Ps1 version.
And III is where console passes computer, same time the series jumped consoles to the next gen.

*Also, I noticed that the Ps versions since GTA2 have come out around the same time, October 22nd to the 27th, until the most recent that everyone has heard of, VI, which also is the jumping point to the next gen, like GTA III was.*

Consoles are easier to play games on in terms of “Will it run?”.
You don’t have to worry whether it will run on the consoles
(maybe errors and glitches that get fixed in an auto update), you play it. :razz:
You don’t have to wonder,
“Could this game run faster if I had an nVidia, instead of an ATI?”,
you just play. :razz:

And if anyone’s wondering, I couldn’t run it on my PC,
cheaper for me to buy it and play it on someone else’s console, and I don’t have to wait for it, either.
It can run Max Payne 2 fine, GTA SA okay,
tried The Punisher, hardware Transform And Lighting not found.
Guess that’s what I get for not upgrading past an onboard card, let alone every year or so. :!:

Whatever dude. It’s not me it’s my buddy here at work, only he is doing it from his computer this time hence the same NAT public address. Did you ever think that maybe if you stopped spouting BS on here people would respect you more. Just a suggestion.:cool:
