I really hope Rockstar doesn't screw up the PC port again. I mean, I still get lag on my sig rig while playing GTAIV. WTH!?

Yea... IV on PC fails in optimization. I can't see them doing any worse this round... if that helps. lol. IV was the first round w/ the engine on PC... I give them that.
If you watch the video again (I have 8 times, 2 times at <=50% speed), it looks like they've made some graphical enhancements on the engine.

We'll see how L.A. Noire plays on the PC. I'm assuming it's using the same engine as that, and if it is we'd better hope L.A. Noire plays well.

I'm looking forward to this though biggrin.gif I'm definitely buying 2 copies. One for Xbox and one for PC.

Here's a bit more for you guys regarding release date.
IV's first trailer was March '07. It was initially to be released in October '07. Finally got released for consoles in April '08 and PC in December '08. The good news is the big delay was because the consoles were new to both the engine and developers still.
I've re-watched every first trailer back to III (that dedicated, yes), and noticed a few things with IV and V (not so much the III-based games). One being cars; there are very few different cars in the trailers relative to the game at release. Another is the story... in the trailers of III and SA you got a good idea of what to expect. In IV and V you get a narrator's voice and a character with his idea of "things will be different". These may indicate the game's current development status.

IMO, it looks like a April-June '12 release.

Different engine. IV uses RAGE/Euphoria, LA Noire uses Havok and whatever for their facial recognition.
I'll be buying 2 copies too, unless PC gets same time release.

I'm wondering if they'll also include San Fierro and Las Venturas. If that's the case, this game will be ENORMOUS!

Also, how the hell will they fit this into a DVD?

The game is looking to be huge w/ just Los Santos. I can't imagine the level of compression or number of DVDs 360 owners will get. R* had problems with fitting IV on a DVD, by the way.

I am aware of that issue, and according to R*, that was one of the reasons why they had to cut off multiple features from GTA IV.

It would be a terrible idea to not release this game for the Xbox 360, since that would require to sacrifice a large margin of profit. What I could see them doing is to, perhaps, use the HDD from the Xbox 360 and install the game into the hard drive, then use one of the DVD's to run the game as an authentication/antipiracy methid. The PS3 could have the game in only one Blu Ray, and obviously, us PC gamers won't have that problem.
