    HAve to agree with hugo, i also bought on xbox. There was something missing. Dont get me wrong its a good game, the gfx and sound, story etc are great. But it just wasnt as good as san andreas.

    I might have a second look at it for the pc. If just for the acquaintance of Brucie!

    Gotta agree with what a couple of others have said.. GTA IV on 360 was a disappointment.. It just wasn't as fun as San Andreas was.

    That english pair in GTA: SA was one of the most fun NPC i ever saw! Not that they could be compared to Morte but anyway...

    November 18??? too much time until them! So looks like the best games are all coming to a port on PC (shame on Halo 3).

    I have always secretly loved GTA, and this news is fantastic because as we all know, PC is the best out of any gaming machine (and you can have cool mods).

    I have been waiting for this just so I didn't have to buy a PS3 or a 360.

    same here. i want to use keyboard+mouse while saving that couple hundred quid instead of buying PS3.

    hopefully us PC gamers will be able to put a 10x distance mod just like San Andreas. that'd make it look better. PS3 version i've played just lags and feels all foggy.

    I agree with wuyanxu.

    Although the majority of people (console scum) don't notice it, or just don't understand it - the performance of IV on the consoles is absolute crap. With the exception of when you're staring at a wall, the game consistently runs between 15-25 fps, which for seasoned PC gamers such as myself, is visually unacceptable. Through much optimization, they've pulled off rendering the game just smooth enough so that it' not a slideshow, while rarely surpassing the 30fps mark.

    Since the game was released, I've been highly anticipating the PC version so I can finally play it with the framerate and IQ it deserves.

    My GTA Dream: IV on a 1080p 120hz FPD... with v-sync. Just think about it.

    i havent really noticed the bad frame rate but i dnt give a **** about framerates as long as it looks good to me and its good to play.

    im showing my ignorance here but is it not the very highest end of PCs that will out preforme a current gen console?

    a cheap 8800GT or 4850 will be able to own console graphics and performance if the developers put their heart to utilising the 4GB PC memory available and shader power.

    while true, dont forget that most games are simple 1-1 ports these days and nothing more, which then kills a big part of the advantage the pc has.
