Holy shit, this is gonna cause a stir.

The new cars look great, I am sure they will be popular. Gonna need more garage space.

I bet they'll release a new version on PC in a few months too as an extra fuck you, if console players have to pay full price for the version then why should PC players miss out on the oppurtunity to lick Rockstar's balls.

My gif wasn't even pointed at PC players
Uh Huh Reaction GIF

YLMAO someone is salty as fuck
You: makes fun of this situation even if we know for ages that R* release everything first on console
Me: prove to you that we didn't wait R* to get a next gen experience
You: UR UR YOU SALTY

Yes you can tell that if it makes you feel better, meanwhile I'll enjoy PC and Playstation games if you don't mind.

My gif was laughing at Rockstar and their decision. You keep making assumptions as you searched for and posted not 1, not 2, but 3 videos. 2 of which don't even look that good, and the third that looks like garbage.

Your assumptions so far:
1) that I was laughing at PC players
2) that I don't have a PC

You also keep resorting to PC vs console arguments for whatever reason.

Do better.

Seems like a marketing deal.

Let's be honest here a next gen version of GTA 5 is a hard sell for PC players anyway with the mods they got access towards.

The new screens don't look much better than ones from existing versions. Isn't the game supposed to be ported to the RDR2 engine?
Would have loved to see a deeper street racing component integrated into the GTA 5 campaign. I know there were a few basic races, but it could have been so much more.
Continues to amaze me how big of a cash cow GTAO turned out to be. Has the player count remained strong all this time?

It's like Rockstar likes to pretend PC modders haven't showed them up in every way possible.

Visual and Graphical Mods
Game Mode Mods
Online Loading Fixes



Say it with me, Rockstar, "Master Race".

Did you even watch this clip? The game is CHUGGING bad as he gets to 200 mph while driving in the city. clearly the game's streaming engine isnt able to handle it which is exactly why the Cerny presentation focused so much on the SSD and I/O.

Rockstar has done a great job future proofing both GTAV and RDR2. they actually catch a lot of flack for including ultra high settings because people with $1000 GPUs cant max it out, but thats the point, it's future proof. Alex from DF found that the x1x was actually using medium to low settings in almost all instance and several physics and water simulation settings were exclusive to the PC version of RDR2.

Yes, they took a year and a half to do these ports, but id rather they take their time porting it than rush it out with console settings.

This is a stupid trend that's ongoing, which is usual during a console launch > transition period.

Let the people who have capable hardware use it. Oh no, but we'll have to work extra hours, a new I/O subsystem with hardware optimization and probably a new renderer, so we'll just wait until a significant number of our game owners on PC upgrade their hardware and then do them all at once.

The has sold close to or more than (data not accurate) 20 million units on steam alone. Granted, the Rockstar Games launcher has the lowest sales, probably a few millions. It was given away for free on the EGS, with millions claiming it and crashing their servers. So, think of 30 million PC players, all of them don't have capable hardware?

Even if this thing releases, PC will still be the best place to play because of the FiveM RP servers. You can't do that on consoles, and of course, visual mods.

The only thing consoles has an edge over the PC version, is the playerbase, which is in the millions playing daily compared to under 500K on PC (all storefronts combined, avg 150K on Steam alone). The game sold 150 million copies, and the vast majority of it are on PS3, 360, PS4 and X1. Now that will increase even further with both these versions.

Nah I just tested and you can do 300 kph in the city with absolutely no issues on PC, no any 'CHUGGING' as the other guy was implying after watching someone stream the game with probably uncapped frame rate. The speed will be no where near that on consoles as it is totally uncontrollable at those speeds.

Faster cars with the same bad driving mechanics? Wonder how this will end up.

It's like Rockstar likes to pretend PC modders haven't showed them up in every way possible.

More than that, a modder actually shown R* how to improve loading times in their own game.
