Rockstar and their consoles using botched up game engine, maybe we can be glad there isn't an atrocious barely running PC version. GTA5 had endless quirks too and does to this day, not being made for PC and powerful hardware really shows. Latest Fallouts had similar issue of borking on PC at higher frame rates.

Why would PC gamers pick up RDR2? So they can spend another 500 USD/EUR on a console to play a game and get hardware that is outdated compared to PC? Wouldn't it be easier to rather get/make an API wrapper and make it run on Windows or Linux? Considering Xbox is pretty much Windows and PS used to be similar to Linux. It's just a stupid lock in software to specific hardware by using console specific APIs etc.

This might come as a surprise to someone who thinks it's easier to "get/make an API wrapper and make it run on Windows or Linux" than to spend $500, but some people just enjoy playing great video games.

I mean i don't have a 4k TV or a console but am probably picking up a PS4 soon for this, God Of War, Uncharted 4, and TLOU II.
Yeah I ended up canceling my ps4 pro and going with an xbone x. Deciding factors for me was the raw power of the x compared to the pro, controller and the 4k blu-ray player. Might pick up a pro sooner or later though it's looking like the ps5 could be here in the next year or two. Guessing with the slack sony and MS have caught over backwards compatibility you'll be able to play ps4 games on the ps5.

Was looking into the PS5 last night i wish they'd announce specs. Certainly don't wanna wait that long to play RDR2 or the other PS4 games so going to jump on a PS4 on sale.
