If GTA4 comes out on PC could it boost sales for the PC?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
PC gaming although is not in crisis point atm but I feel that developers are moving away from PC and focusing more on making games for the console.

However, If Gta4 does come out on PC then Imho it will most likely be the most successful game for the PC ever. I guarantee it. Unless it has starforce/DRM yuck!, but still I will bet my life's savings that this game will boost PC gaming sales and will make a significant impact on the PC sales. I wouldn't be surprised if it was no.1 for like 10 weeks and beat WOW and/or sims in sales to be the most successful game ever. Infact, I hope it does. Its time for some other game to take over the top position and stay there.

It will teach developers what games we want to play and how they are meant to be made.

What are your thoughts?

i think the same. pc gaming suffers from piracy alot but if you think about it, focusing on console gaming will just attract piracy to that. there will always be exploitation. where thers a will theres a way lol. so i say screw the worry on sales and make pc gamers happy. I WANT MY GTA!

You guys didn't get it. I am not saying that its in Crisis but it is heading down that path you can't deny that. I may have worded the thread incorrectly and some what misleading will alter it. Chill.

I disagree. I feel that all the people who want to play GTA4 very badly, will buy it for their console, and most will even save up and buy the new console just to play this game. By the time GTA4 comes out on the PC, almost everyone who wanted it will have it. And besides, it will probably cost more for those who don't have a console to upgrade their PC so it can play GTA4, than it would to just buy an xbox 360.

You didn't really need to upgrade your h/w for the PC to play gta series. I know that as a fact. All the gta series I have been able to max it out without taxing on my fps.

Last time and the trend backs it up. That PC games have been 20-30 dollars cheaper(at least in australia) than consoles(both). Thats why I buy them. A console game would cost $120(I know its expensive) while a PC game would cost 60-80 bucks depending on the title.

I re-installed GTA:SA and upped all the settings to max and for the life of me, couldn't figure out why I was only getting 25 FPS....turns out that the "Frame Limiter" in GTA:SA limits it to 25 FPS....Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?! Turn that off and I get a blasting 150 frames.

That is an extremely argued point.

Anyways, if they find a way to counter Piracy, then yes, I do believe that PC sales would improve greatly.
