    Okay, so last night I had my jailbroken iPod plugged into my computer while playing BioShock Infinite on Steam.
    After I finished playing and I closed my game one of those steam marketing ads popped up saying "Summer Sale Trading Cards..." All that jazz.

    I proceeded to the store tab to look for deals. I saw GTA V was available for preorder and decided, "what the heck, why not." Now this is where stuff gets weird. Right after I bought it, Steam said an update was available. I restarted steam, and then my games and favorites in my library were separated by strange text instead of "Games" and "Favorites." They now said "#STEAM_LIBRARY_FILTER_OWNER" and "#STEAM_GAMESSECTION_MYGAMES". I also noticed there was a new "game" installed on my Steam. It said "Apple Runtime." Before I could click it though, a window popped up saying "Download and Install Games now?" I clicked next and finish. I checked my downloads window and saw GTA V was already downloading! It was 27.5GB. I went to investigate that weird apple game thing but when I tried to get to library it crashed. I reopened steam and saw that the bottom said "2 Downloads" now.
    GTA V: 13.8GB @ 4kbps
    GTA V: Online 13.7GB @ 2mbps
    I saw how slow the first one was going (and if you've downloaded a game with a multiplayer node, you know that pausing the multiplayer one and letting the SP download first makes it faster)

    I paused my the " GTA V: Online" download but the speed remained the same for GTA V. It would occasionally spike at 100kbps. I tried to start the Online download again but when I did Steam popped a window that said:
    "Removing Jailbroken Apps."
    I didn't think they were talking about my iPod at the time, but rather the GTA V I had just purchased, so I was pretty pist, but I found that my preorder was still valid, but the games were revoked from my account.
    It restored my iPod somehow too (the icons became really small, and nothing worked)


    TLDR;

    I bought GTA V and it ate my iPod.

    That's sad. I once heard that Steam got someone's penis steamy, and a girl ate it.
    But yeah, Steam ate my brother number one, my broham, and my brother number nine.

    So the tl;dr version of the article is "the developers didn't announce it, a retailer listed it so it may very well be coming in the nearby future"? Yeah, can't wait. :yay:

    We all know it's going to land on PC's at some point in time, but until then there is no PC version.

    Steam did that for me too, one is for non-steam games and the other is for steam software/games.
