    January 27th. Cool. So how long after that will it be playable?

    Edit: Any official PC requirements yet?
    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    I was thinking of realistic requirements, you know what I meant cheeky sod.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but surely if you can match the power of the PS4/XBone then you should at least be able to play at that quality level on your PC? I would have thought Rockstar would have pitched the "realistic" level at something that isn't going to mean having to spend thousands of pounds/punt/euros/dollars/etc on your PC rig, since therein lies commercial disaster.
    Additionally, there will be new radio selections with more than 100 extra new songs.
    Any chance of reinstating that feature from one of the very early GTA's where you had a "user defined" radio station that you could track-populate by putting MP3's in a certain folder.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Well it's really not quite as simple as that. The mistake people keep making with comparing the consoles to PC, is just because they're x86, assume it's identical to a PC and straightforward to compare. They're not. Besides the custom logic around the x86/GCN processing elements, custom uncore, etc, developers also have a static hardware target allowing for more work on optimising for the uArch.

    Yeah, I also know 'optimising' is a word thrown about too much, but just for way of example, the developers can run traces and performance profilers on their code to predict exactly how it will run on a fixed target, and modify it where there are avoidable stalls etc. Then there are different APIs. Also, they're free to use and fully depend on any instruction sets available to them without having to worry about backwards compatibility. On PC, if devs want to make use of e.g. AVX for something like physics, AI or whatever, they *must* then create at least two compiled binaries in order for systems without AVX compatibility to play it. A good amount of PC games simply don't bother, and stick with something like SSE2 for simplicity. Multiple binaries = more work after all.

    However, on the thread topic, as crossy said it would presumably run fine on reasonably powerful hardware. There's little point releasing a game next to no-one can actually play. However it must be said, GTA4 doesn't inspire much confidence when it comes to Rockstar's PC ports...

    Didn't quite work like that with GTA IV. Depends how good the port is.

    Edit: Postbombed! Watercooled explains some of the issues slightly better than I did.

    Well - naive mode on - maybe they learned from that particular mistake, and won't repeat it this time around?

    And with that I'm grabbing my butterfly net and going huntin' some free flying bacon. Come to papa lil' piggies....

    Lol, here's hoping. Considering it's been a while since the PS3 version came out it'd be nice to think the delay has been down to them ironing out issues before release.

    Think I best get my net and join you mate...

    That feature was in GTA IV (Independence FM), so I'd assume it will most likely be in GTA V too.

    Lol, true, the real answer no doubt being that I need to upgrade to a quantum computer.

    Hmm. I've already "moved on" to other games now I know the game was over hyped. I guess that's the problem with releasing a game on PC 1 year after it has been elsewhere. Lucky for me as it saved me £40ish quid

    A bit "too little too late" for me. This was the last game I bought for a console and that was probably the last concole I'll own. Moved onto new things now.
