UK and France Amazon sites list PC port of Grand Theft Auto V

At the moment, Grand Theft Auto V is officially set for release later this year for the PS3 and Xbox 360. However, the open world action game sequel from Rockstar Games is looking more and more like it will make a PC appearance as well.

Computer and Video Games reports that the UK and French Amazon websites both have listings for a PC version of GTA V. While the UK website only allows users to set up an alert to be informed when the game will be ready to order, the French Amazon website lets people pre-order the game itself. The French order page also shows that the game supports Windows XP, Vista and 7. Oddly, Windows 8 support is not listed.

In any case, we would be shocked if GTA V was not released for the PC at some point, since all of the previous games in the best selling series have been ported to the PC, usually around six months or so after they show up on consoles. GTA V is looking like it will be the biggest game yet in terms of the sheer amount of area and content that can be explored and accessed.

The PC offers so much potential but sadly it is overlooked. I for GTA4 for my PC but after all the problems and glitches I ended up getting bored, I had some great visuals but lousy gameplay. When GTA4 EFLC was released, I decided to get it for XBOX and had a great gaming experience but lousy visuals. GTA5 needs to address the in-balance.

I didn't even realize GTAIV was viewed as a bad port. It wasn't playable on my (back then) already 6-year old system, but that's because it hardly met the minimum requirements, so I wasn't surprised.

A few months later I got myself an i7-2600 and played the game through on it without any issue I can remember. Everything, everywhere, was smooth as glass and it never crashed on me. I'm guessing maybe that's because by the time I had the system to play it on, there were a few patches out already.

After playing the Xbox version then migrating to the PC. I will never play the xbox version again. The graphics are hands down way better on the PC. At least in GTA IV, but Im not getting my hopes up for better on GTA V.

QFFT.

That pile of crap was and still is to this day awful.

Probably one of the worst PC ports of all time.

Saints Row 2 is the worst port ever for me.

The map is twice the big. Just like Halo 4, Microsoft have to trim it down to 2 discs and made the 2nd disc DLC sort of thing. So that will never possible. Unless...

Correct. SR2 port looks like it could have been a native PS2 game.

GTA IV was a horrid port, but people over-exaggerate it's gash-ness because it's GTA. Yes, it was bad, but to be fair, I don't get GTA on the PC for the game... I get it for the Modding Scene

Dude, it's unplayable on my 27" iMac '11 on Windows 7...

It stutters like crazy and that definitely shouldn't happen keeping in mind my iMac is fully specced out apart from no SSD.

This is why I still play it on the Xbox 360, it works so much better. No online connection issues, no glitching maps works so much better.

I've had minor performance issues on an old rubbish rig, but it played relatively well considering how limited the hardware was. Since then I've had it running on my new rig with next to no issues apart from performance being below par for the system spec.

Regarding stuttering - I've seen that quite often on a PS3 version of the game that my old housemate had, but I don't know whether that was a console issue or a game issue.

Maybe I should give it another go this weekend or so, albeit I doubt it'll be much better...
