To bad it actually can happen.
Not true in the slightest.
It'll open doors for better developers who can tap into the PC platforms huge potential. Then, naturally, you'll see Rockstar and any other AAA developer come running back for a piece of the pie.
I for one have no intent on giving these money grabbing game developers my money, and i couldn't care much for GTA V considering there is no announced release for the better gaming platform; PC. Rockstar have little regard for the PC gamers who made them the success they are today. I'd also wager that even IF a PC port made it over, it would be just that - a port, and probably a poor one at that just like GTA IV. Rockstar have shown repeatedly where their loyalties lie. A game like GTA V should not be written for 6+ year old tech, and should take full advantage of current technology.
In the meantime, i have plenty of other great titles to look forward to, some of which are featured on Kickstarter with huge backing and donations. There are the odd few "big name" developers whome i still have respect for, even if, nowadays, it's a list that gets smaller. (Valve, Bethesda, CD Projekt, etc)
I believe that in time, the PC platform will see an explosion in popularity from both gamers and innovative games. Just not right now.

If you seriously think GTA V is better on consoles, you're just downright ignorant and have no idea how much better a dedicated PC version is, not just in graphical candy but also in mods and a modding community, which in turn, aids in further profit and success of any game. It's the best form of advertisement there is - ENB got alot of attention with it's first GTA IV release.Edited by Thingamajig - 11/19/12 at 12:05pm
