    I'm more concerned about why it requires 18 gigs of HD space. didn't this game fit on an xbox 360 disc (i.e a dvd). I'll assume they used a dual layer disc so it should be about 9 gigs plus an extra gig for the higher res textures.

    I'd rather they delay it till next year than release it broken. I'm sick of games being released full of bugs.
    On the subject of sytem specs, they do seem a little odd. Why does it need such a high end CPU but not so much GPU?
    And the HDD space requirements are just silly. It better have some amazing textures.

    I usually pre-order the PC releases of GTA but I think I'll wait for a Bit-Tech review this time round.

    Two conspiracies to pick from:

    1: delayed because it still sells well on consoles.
    2: delayed because noone has time to play it with too many high profile titles being released last week of oct and in nov.

    They can delay it all they want. I still wont buy it till I have a few reviews to read. I was dissapointed in the past with the quality of the ports for gta games. I hope that this one runs better on the pc.

    18 gig? WTF? Are we all expected to have 250gig primary partitions now? What happened to the days when an 80gig Raptor was considered more then enough for your OS and all you games

    Quad core Recommended? So, I'm assuming this game supports 4 threads? That's rare.

    in line with some of the comments above, how come this game can run on a PS3 or a 360 but you need to meet some really eye bulging specs to run it on a PC?

    I was considering buying this one but now I have my doubts, it would have to be truly awsome to warrant this kind of hardware setup.

    it'll need this system requirements, because its a port, and will be done badly, because as PC gamers, we are treated as pirates, whether we are or not, and that means we get the **** end of the stick no matter what. Its becoming all the rage these days to leave PC gamers out, and console fanboys get the best, it's really a shame, considering they wouldnt have their consoles without our technology

    I love SA:MP (San Andres Multiplayer) mod for PC, I play it reguly simply to fly jets in formation and battle against the other hundred and odd users on each server, though I have to say a lot of the users are idiotic 12 year old noobs. I hope PC multiplayer of this new GTA will live up to our expectations, if not, SA:MP start working on a new one please ;)

    As long as it's not a port, I can handle the specs.

    I'm surprised no one noticed that Q6600 = Phenom 8750 apparently.

    They probably meant a C2D rather than a Quad.
