    Got it on the PS3 and almost completed it, not sure I'll bother buying the PC version to replay it in HD. The graphics on the PS3 are horrific coming from a PC playing at 2560x1440! Even at 720p the PS3 is stuttery and looks quite blocky at times.

    We all knew it would happen but was just a matter of when. Previous GTA's usually followed about 8 months later so its good to see it should be earlier!

    This is so that Rockstar can make as much money as they can becuase console gaming is where all the money is these days and PC is where the game gets pirated. ( because the gamne cannot be sold ! )

    Great, I'm looking forward to playing this. Until it's on PC I'm not giving them a dime (for once!).

    I'm shocked said no-one.

    Glad I stuck to my guns and avoided buying it for PS3.

    There are plenty of digital distribution channels on the PC where the game can easily be sold, also if you believe that piracy is a PC only thing, you sir are an uneducated fool.

    How did 'make as much money as they can' and 'PC is where the game gets pirated (because the game cannot be sold)' end up in the same sentence? Does not compute. Games cost a great deal of money to port, even if it's not a particularly good port.

    Besides, the assumption that everyone on PC is out to steal every game they can get their hands on is utter nonsense. Plenty of games sell very well on PC, and it remains the lead platform for a great deal of games, AAA or otherwise.

    On another subject, I wonder how well this GTA will run on PC? Maybe we'll be surprised and it'll run well?

    Well, don't shoot the messenger mate. Every publisher is doing it these days. They release the PC version later because they know that as soon as the PC version is released, it will get pirated immediately and they will hardly make any money.
    Unless something has changed, selling PC games is impossible as it's tied to your Origin or uplay account and there are limitations on how many reinstalls you can do afaik.

    Did a bit of eBay USED completed listings' search,
    Splinter Cell Blacklist for consoles sold for about £20
    Splinter Cell Blacklist for PC - only two games had been listed so far and one sold for £17 and was a code.
