It looks like Rockstar is going to exceed everyone's expectations. Just like they did with Red Dead Redemption.

Im not a huge gamer but I love the GTA series. When it comes to upgrades, I always tend to build my new PC so it can handle the latest GTA in a pleasing manner. My 360 was great for EfLC but the quality was lacking compared to GTA4 on my PC.

Just as I feared, the graphics are really weak. The narrative looks decent but without any indication as to what the gameplay is like we still know pretty much nothing about the game, other than that PC users are getting screwed over again. I'm really surprised that GTAV and Assassin's Creed 3 both went for last current-gen rather than first next-gen, especially when it's easy to scale down games so they can still benefit from the massive install base of the current consoles.

What are you talking about? I was complaining that Max Payne 3 had cutscenes that were pre-rendered at console graphics levels and that it looks terrible in comparison to PC quality graphics. Unfortunately, that's what you get when bad developers put out half-assed ports - even the console versions of GTAIV suffered from slow down and the resolution for the PS3 version had to be lowered as well. Consoles can't render at 2560x1600, let alone 60fps, let alone with anti-aliasing, let alone with hardware physics, let alone with high resolution textures, etc. Even the bad PC ports are better than the console versions - it's just they terrible in comparison to how they should have been. Consoles are great if you don't care about graphics or accurate consoles and you're on a budget. That may sound elitist but it's like comparing McDonald's to a fancy restaurant - they both provide good food, it's just aimed at people with different tastes.

Yea right, Rockstar's a bad developer. :wacko:

It also wouldn't have been possible to render the cutscenes in game with the amount of post-processing/effects that were going on. I'm not surprised hardware which is 7 years old can't compete with modern PC's.

Developers go where the money is and right now it's at the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Always funny no matter how many PC exclusive extra bells and whistles the developer adds, Max Payne 3 is called a bad-port. DirectX 11, far-higher textures and assets and greater visual fidelity controls.

Same boat. Not going to do a proper build until GTA V is about to be released for PC. Sure I could probably build now and it would probably handle it just fine, but I prefer to just bide my time while the hardware gets faster, while also getting cheaper, and who knows how long it will be before the PC version is going to be released. Until then I'm just going to stick with my PS3 for most games. I have given GTA IV on PC a miss this time but I'm sure there will be plenty of time to go back and do it after GTA V.

I'm not even going to bother with GTA V on the PC, GTA4 was pretty bad, and I can't imagine Rockstar doing better this time around.

For me, the only reason to get GTA4 on the PC vs. the 360, was that you could turn off their stupid "definition" shader (Which did the exact opposite of it's name, it blurred everything when it was enabled)

The PC market is tiny compared to consoles, I don't think they care.
