L4D released Nov 17th so most of its sales aren't accounted for. Notice it says "Nov 30 - Dec 6"

Maybe if GTA4 PC wasn't a buggy piece of **** it would have sold better.

They don't realize that many people bought 360's or PS3's for this game.

You need to have a freekin super computer to play the game in the first place. If you havnt bult a computer in the past year or so then your screwed. You pretty much have to have a quad core cpu for the game to run smoothly...

Get an upgrade and STOP whining!



Just kidding! The game is just ridiculous, I completely agree with you. It's badly coded to the MAX, and I feel for all the people that don't have cash to throw at upgrades (I had a P4, 756mb DDR and a A9250... and got 10 - 15 FPS in BF2 on my old computer @ very low settings). The community would be way stronger if the game was a lot more scalable. You shouldn't have to upgrade dramatically to play a game.

Game runs fine for me, never "feel" the low fps. Multiplayer free-mode with rocket launchers is fun

As for the poor sales, I agree with those saying that it has been out too long for consoles to expect good sales on PC. I'm sure the poor performance hype also effected the sales. Albeit, the game does indeed need a strong PC to play even remotely well on poor settings.

They probably didn't include online sales.

This game would have been top seller, and would've stayed up there for a while if it wasn't for the crappy porting. Rockstar even messed up such basic things like savegame files...you can't simply drag and drop to transfer them. What happens when gamers reformat (we do very often)...are we expected to start the game all over again? I mean come on...

The game is way too demanding, due to the crappy porting. It's just so sad...this game would have been the best.

I've lost faith in rockstar...

First of all, there is simply no excuse for this game to completely lack support for crossfire/sli. No AA? Ditto. Have to jump through hoops just to download a basic patch, that apparently doesn't even really help? Unforgivable.

And for anyone saying that people should upgrade their machines to play it, this game was designed to run in 1080p on three year old hardware. 95% of this forum should be able to max it out. This is Rockstar at their most half-assed that I have ever seen from them, and that's saying a LOT.

As it stands now, I have bought a lot of games in my life, and stolen a lot of games in my life, and I wouldn't even steal this thing. I don't even want a copy for FREE.

I imagine that I'm hardly alone.
