    Will it come?
    It feels so bad to know it isn't even announced yet...
    I don't want to miss GTA IV, cause I know its gonna be superb again (GTA is the best and most famous game series ever) but I don't want to buy a console for that...

    dunno pokemon,mario, final fantasy are more famous/ have sold more. Also possibly the sims. :|

    I think that they'll make GTAIV for pc later. Like next year or something perhaps? Though they haven't announced anything afaik.

    They always release GTA's on the PC.
    A lot later than console versions but it'll definetely come.

    The Sims and Pokemon is indeed too very famous, but I think the most people like GTA far more then Pokemon or the Sims.
    GTA's are great games, and very fun to play.

    problem is, PC never saw the release of GTA:LCS and GTA:VCS, even though they were eventually ported to PS2 iirc.

    i think it'd be a bad move on Rockstar/Take2's part if they didnt release to PC

    Once the buzz around the game slows down, and sales are already long gone those millions, you can bet the PC version won't be too far off.

    Sales would beg to differ. I believe the sims currently holds the title for best selling game of all time. Though it could've been dethroned since I last checked.

    your right
    sims 50mil
    the only game to come close is 40mil which is super mario bros. and is only because it was bundled with the NES followed closely by tetris for GB but also only because it was included in the game boy package

    Is it counting expansion packs and collections of the sims or not?

    I think the top selling specific game release of all time was the USA version of "Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt". When every region, revision, compilation, etc. of all games worldwide are counted separately.

    Let's pray that it come to the PC. I am looking forward to the user-mods. Especially if someone cleans up the vulgarity and other objectionable material (ie. make it kid friendly). I can't understand why Rockstar doesn't add this mode anyways... it would more than double their potential client base. I for one will not buy it on principle of the content. As soon as they add a kid-safe mode, then I'll buy 2.

    I guess they made it for 360 because there was already source for the PC? Besides, All major GTA games have been on PC. Actually played San Andreas (the right way) on the PC.

    Errr... Kid safe mode on GTA? There would be nothing left...

    You need to steal cars (Hence GTA!!) to get around the game, if you take that out you would be screwed...

    And what about the gun violence, how can they take that out??

    You do realize the reason that the PC version comes much later right? First of all, not EVERY one has PC of high standards that can play it, secondly, PC is subjected to higher amounts of pircay ratings. Once Rockstar sees lowering number in console sales, they will milk the final drops on PC. Vice city or San Andreas, I forget which one... was announced to be never released on PC, yet, shortly after, they did it. This has no words about PC, so there maybe a higher chance. I just hope my stupid Geforce 8800 can run it...

    I don't see why they wouldn't port it... eventually. Otherwise we have to wait for a PS3 emulator (that would be for a long time).
