    I'd rather they got it polished, too many games are being released only half finished these days.

    Yeah, if it's going to be fully optomized then fair play.

    You actually believe it was delayed to further 'polish' it? How cute. Really, you must also believe in Father Christmas.


    99 Reasons why GTA V was delayed... to polish it ain't one.

    Not that you'd provide any of the other 99 reasons of course...

    So does the fact that the minimum requirements pretty much match the recommended requirements of GTA IV mean that a) it will look like a well dressed turd, or b) they have actually optimised the engine this time?

    Delay after delay, already brought it second hand for £15 on ps4 and completed it will not pay full price for this on PC anymore. They could of launched it side by side with console release but no more delays.

    Better to polish it then to release it as a buggy mess - then everyone would just moan about that!

    Most people have played this on a console anyway by now (I bought it on the 360 as I knew the PC release would take a while)... I'll still be buying this though - can't wait! :)

    Oh please.

    "Polish" translates to "We ****ed something up, and now it doesn't run on anything that isn't specced up like a super computer". It's Rockstar and a PC port after all.

    Get with the times? It's an eleven year old song!

    I think I might just buy a PS4 to play this and sell it once completed. I'd probably lose less money than the PC version would cost.

    This is very disappointing. Considering how long it's taking to release it, it better work straight off the bat. Guess I'll just stick to Far Cry 4 until then :)
