It's just business.

Because it's "just business" we shouldn't complain about something that's quite rightly disappointing? The PC market is growing, so it's no excuse for them to not spend a bit porting it to PC and making a huge profit. Even if they spent the extra cash porting it to PC, and say for the sake of argument it cost them a LOT of money to do to get it out at the same time as the PS3 and 360, Rockstar will be in an absolutely perfect fiscal sweet-spot around Spring time (after analysts reviews regarding Rockstar's sales and the fiscal end of the company, and it's relation to GTA V), so they'll make millions upon millions no matter what, and it'll all pay off whatever they spent on development many, many times over.

Anyone who's followed Rockstar's games knows this means it's going to be 6 months-12 months later.

Kind of sad they completely overlook PC gamers like this.

I doubt a PC release generates huge profits otherwise they'd be releasing it day and date with the console versions.

You would think though that a PC version would sell at least 500k to a million though. Not a huge piece of the pie for a game that will sell 10+ million units but still significant. My worry is that if they didn't release RDR which was a giant hit why would they release GTA5?

Also Max Payne 3 sold below expectations on all platforms. Just to give you an idea LA Noire despite being one of the most poorly designed games I've ever played outsold it in it's first month which is where most sales happen with games.

Well Rockstar, as I've completely given up console gaming, I won't be buying the console releases anymore either.

Right there with you.

I could care less if they don't prioritize the PC version. Although they are not going to make it at all now? Wow...screw them.

Honestly, I won't be buying any of their games then. No way in heck I am playing GTA V on a console with horrible 640p and 28 FPS! Remember GTA IV on the console? Yeah.............it was not a pretty sight and was nearly unplayable...........ugly graphics, horrible view distance, low FPS and laggy.

Whatever though... To this day, I still have not played GTA IV. I still cannot even play GTA IV on my PC with more than 50 FPS, as it runs on such a junk engine.

GTA games are just one of those that I much prefer to play on consoles. Lay back, relax, and kill some hookers. thumb.gif

Consoles are dirt cheap these days too, there's really not much reason to be bitter about this.
