GTA V for PC shows up on Amazon, available to pre-order

Back in October, we reported a rumour that Grand Theft Auto V would finally make the jump to PCs in the first quarter of 2014. The game has proven to be a phenomenal success on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but those with PCs have so far been left out of the fun. 

But it looks like the wait may soon be over. As TechRadar reports, Amazon France briefly added a listing for a PC version of the game, which quickly disappeared.

However, over on Amazon Germany, the listing remains active, including the option to pre-order the game. The description mentions compatibility with Windows 7 and Vista but, curiously, does not mention Windows 8.

The listing also omits any hint of when those who pre-order the game might expect to take delivery of it. 

It is possible that the product page was posted in error on both the French and German sites, of course, but PC gamers eager to get their hands on GTA V will no doubt be hoping that the most expensive video game in history will finally make it on to PCs soon.

My only concern is if it'll run better than GTAIV did. Had frame rate problems with GTAIV on my old rig with an i7 950 @ 4.2 Ghz, 6GB DDR3 1600 ram and 2x GTX 460's in SLI. Soon I will be getting a Haswell processor, new LGA 1150 motherboard and eventually a GTX 760 so I hope this game will run well when it's released.

I hope they eventually bring it to Xbox One and PS4 as well. After going back on my 360 an playing it I really wish I could play it on my One with the better controller and even with improved graphics. I would be happy even if it just had anti-aliasing.

the question is... what's the requirements?

i hope it can run Okay on a 512MB video card (Radeon HD 5670) and a Intel i3-2120 CPU (dual core).

p.s. i could have got the game on the XBox360 but i figured a game like this is better suited for a mouse+keyboard due to better aiming which makes all of the difference.

It will be up there with games that have the highest requirements.. you probably want to upgrade if you plan on playing GTA, especially if it's a poor port.. GTA IV is the worst running game i own and that was with a 7950. I'd say get a minimum of 7700 series, but that will likely be on low-med settings. .. this is all just a guess of course.

it must be a hog as the last i knew games where playable on my system (Max Payne 3 ran alright) as my weak link is clearly my GPU. so even if i had to lower graphics etc i am mostly just concerned with a mostly playable game. if not, the heck with it as i don't really play much games anymore anyways like i used to as it's just not worth the $$$ to upgrade PC's to keep up with games as my system should be good for a while in general use.

which is why my general theory is pretty much right... like, a new console comes along and you need monster hardware and upgrades fairly often until the PC's hit a point where you can have the same PC for years and still run games half way decently which is what it's like now with XBox360 being out for a while but now that the XBox One/PS4 came out not long ago it won't be much longer before that process starts all over again.

p.s. but i am mostly done with gaming myself as it's getting harder and harder to find a quality game worth playing AND finishing and it's just not worth dumping a ton of $$$ on hardware just to play maybe a decent game once in a while.

Yeah this is too late. I would have paid this price (maybe) for it when it first came out if it was on PC as well but with the length of time it's taken and having heard endless complaints about cheating and hacking on the online mode to which rockstar have done nothing....
Yeah, you can shove it rockstar.

I think Rockstar will bring a better port for PC than most people seem to anticipate, mainly because of PS4 & X1, I'm sure they are working on those 3 systems and using PC as a core. So if PC port is bad, imagine what you'll get on ps4 or x1?

GFWL was killed off. I'm getting this for all the eventual mods alone, GTA4 has some great mods. If you don't like something you can change it.

all of that you mention was killed off long time ago and there is leaks on the web of code inside GTA 5 now that show DX11 and stuff so the fact is when this gets on PC it will use DX11 tech and be 64bit based with no soicial club since rockstar no longer uses it .

i take it it has been years maby since day 1 of GTA 4 PC that you played thus you was not informed of these closed portions of software

have you seen the PS4 in action with games like Killzone shadow fall it is gorgeous and runs @ 1080P native now i dont like the xbone so i could care less but most PS4 games do run native 1080p

Pay $60 for another poor port of the console version? No thanks, Rockstar.

Get a decent PC. I wasn't even aware GTA4 was considered a "poor port" until I happened to look at forums - I played it (and Lost and Damned and Gay Tony) through and through and it worked absolutely fine. I'll happily pay $60 to play GTA5 with a mouse and keyboard.

I played the hell out of the game even with a crappy PC!! Dual-core Athlon x2 64 at around 20-28fps, but goddamn if I didn't love every bit of that game. Found ways to optimize it for my play too.
