Always good to see developers crapping on large portions of customers.

so if pc sales are quarter of R* entire sales just like ps3 and xbox is another 50% of sales, then they should treat pc the same as ps3, afterall this kind of annoying your customers is simply wrong.

It doesn't really annoy customers that much though, and there's more to it than just sales numbers.

For example, Metallica made more money on their 2010 tour in Sydney than any other city that I could see, Melbourne was pretty high up and Perth (One of the smallest cities they played in Down Under) made $3 million more profit than New York City...By that logic, they'd be here much more often, but there's all sorts of other stuff that factors in. Not to mention, nearly every PC gamer tends to stop caring once the game is actually released.

To all the people who are still complaining about the PC release being delayed.

Rockstar have been delaying the PC versions of GTA 6-8 months since 2001, and every release at around this point of development they say they have nothing to share about the PC version at "this time". I have no idea why you are only complaining now.

Still, I'm gutted. Grand Theft Auto has been, and always will be one of my favourite series to date. Fortunately, I hadn't got my PC until after RDR, so I at least got to play that on my 360, but I'd still love to replay that on PC.

Current List of games Voodoo got excited about on PC but got lied to -
#1 Red Dead Redemption
#2 Battlefield 1943 (How the hell this wasn't made for PC I have no idea, even the console version was supreme and I logged a silly number of hours, I'd rather play 1943 than BF3)
#3 GTA V
The Red Baron

Someone told me that developing for the consoles are pretty expensive compared to PC. So maybe that's another reason why developers focus on the console version of their games. They pour all their heart and soul into the Xbox or PS3 version then used whatever they have left to do a half assed port for the PC gamers.
Well, LA Noire turned out good didn't it? I wouldn't worry about it..just like with GTA 4, I'll wait about a year or two after they try to patch their mistakes then later abandon the game and a Steam sale to buy it.

I think people are jumping the gun on possible non-release for PC port. While there might be a delay, there has been a PC release for each GTA going back to III (off the top of my head).

Rockstar has seen the majority of their sucess on consoles so they will probably focus their limited resources on those releases first. I remember last that they have been cutting down a bit of their workforce and just recently combined offices (Toronto?) They are also might be looking to expand multiplayer as well which will take alot of time given that it isn't exactly their specialty but they put out a good amount of effort to do remembering MP3 (less the hackers and connection bugs.)

#1 Red Dead Redemption Rockstar said it was never coming to PC in the first place, if you heard otherwise it wasn't from R*
#2 Battlefield 1943 (How the hell this wasn't made for PC I have no idea, even the console version was supreme and I logged a silly number of hours, I'd rather play 1943 than BF3)
#3 GTA V[ They said they have nothing to share yet, not that it isn't coming to PC/quote]

Because collective persecution complex?

I wanted to post this earlier, but decided I couldn't be bothered. R* delaying certain versions of their games isn't new. (Admittedly, the last GTA game that they did this with, San Andreas, they also delayed the xbox version as well). Besides, remember how badly optimized GTA4 was?
