Both Sony and M$ have paid Rockstar for making it console time exclusive. PC version will appear in the spring of 2014.
Question is, will it be better? And also will that version be the base for future PS4 and XBox ONE versions?
We'll see. :party:

IMO Rockstar Devs are the Hookers of the gaming world.
Lame move to get rid of the piled up stashes of ancient PS3 and XBox360 consoles.
What do you think?

I have seen combo bundles for PS3 with GTA V. Would you grab that or wait for the PC or new console versions?

Hey don't be dissing current gen consoles. They may be old but the gameplay is great.

I will say one thing though based on the facts of the game so far... good luck trying to illegally modify the game against R*s wishes when they have complete 100% control of your online profile save...

Who said i was interested in modding that game? GTA IV had many mods, but i never tried them. I only mod games that support it, like RFactor or Skyrim, or are abandoned by the devs (TDU2). So what are you trying to implicate here?

But GTA IV was released to PC 6 months after the consoles and they seem to have a similar approach with V. And they get paid to do so.
I think that kind of interference from both $ony and M$ is disturbing. And looking to sales numbers they don't need that kind of "support".
It seems that the two big companies try to get rid of as many "old" consoles as they can before Christmas and use blockbusting games like GTA to achieve that. :mrgreen:

This is fantastic news as far as I'm concerned, only because I'm more used to playing with mouse and keyboard.
Only problem I can see is it might clash with the release of The Crew game. :eeek:

Best release of this gen? Red dead redemption for sure. Yes I said it. And it wasn't even released on PC which is a real shame.

Looks like gta5 will make it this time.

Me too, that's the only thing that keeps putting me off playing on the Xbox. Roll on PC version :party:

It was all a smart marketing plot I believe. Some people want it for xbox360/PS3, some PC, and some Xbone/PS4.

Rockstar > We are only releasing the game for current gen consoles guys!
Everyone > although annoyed, GTA is a great game, so they suck it up and buy it for current gen consoles ($1 billion + profit)
Rockstar > Hey guys, we will release it for PC now, but not next gen consoles, okay?
Everyone (who is primarily a PC gamer) > Buys GTA5 for PC, thus owning 2 copies now...
Rockstar > Hey guys, releasing it for next gen now!
Everyone > Buy for next gen.

Maximum profit market scheme, but also allows for maximum b*tching.
