It's using the same engine as Max Payne 3 right? I expect that it'll be much better than GTA4 if that is the case. Super excited :happy:

 

Also, to all those who petitioned that it stay on consoles:

I never played Max Payne 3 (I should). So I don't know anything about it's engine.

 

And people really petitioned to keep it consoles only? Why on earth?

No idea, It sounds like good business sense to me, more people buying your product=more profit etc...

(My post was just an inside joke from an old console vs pc debate)

Yep I have to admit I wasn't aware of people petitioning to keep it on console and I certainly wouldn't support it either!

 

I'm really torn on this, I enjoyed the short time I had on GTA V but im not sure I would want to replay it and re-earn everything I did on XB360. This might be a game I pickup only if my friends do.

One less reason to get either of the next gen systems anytime soon for me.  Heck, with all the stuff coming in 2015 there's really very little reason to get either this year for me.

Yeah, I've regained some confidence in rockstar's pc porting after playing Max Payne 3, that game looked amazing and ran very well.

No idea, here's the petition: https://www.change.o...ersion-of-gta-v

 

It made the rounds on some websites a while back. Doesn't look like it gained much traction from anything other than trolls though :).

hate to admit it but i have no faith that GTA V for PC will be any better optimized for PC than IV was.

 It's also coming out on Xbone and PS4 but who the hell cares.

 

Probably millions of PS4 and XB1 owners?

Me. Getting it on Xbox one.

 

I will be getting this for either PS 4 or Xbox One. I don't own either one.  I last had a PS2 and that's it.  I went xbox and didn't go back.   I really want a Xbox one, but I will wait.  If they say GTA 5 WILL be 1080p for X1, then I'll instantly go buy it.  If not, then I'll make my way back to PS.  This is the game that decides it for me.

Petty children, that petition. :rolleyes:

The thing about Max Payne 3 was that each loaded environment wasn't as large and expansive as loading an entire city a-la GTA. I'm definitely hoping for a fluid game though!

And their reasoning is hilarious.

Console games are pirated just as much as pc games.

It's been getting harder and harder to pirate console games though.  On the PC it's as easy as it's ever been, heck steam makes it easier.
