    Weehooo! Take my money!

    Hopefully the extra time is spent making it a proper PC game and not a crappy port!

    I'm actually disappointed. I was hoping to get it for Christmas. I hoped when they delayed it for a few months earlier this year it was because they were working on a PC port. Max Payne 3's port was amazing. Rockstar really disappointed me on this one..

    Considering the quality of the port of GTA IV, I will either pass or at least wait for a couple of months after release.

    I'm with backo - the GTA IV port was AWFUL. I'll at least wait until the game is reasonably play-able (and on sale) before buying.

    I'm patient, I'll wait for the port. I have to because I have absolutely no intention of throwing away money on a console.

    Me three. Trying to play GTA IV on my i5-GTX680 is painful. 30fps is NOT an acceptable frame rate for pc gamers... I guess the didn't get the memo?

    I really hope it makes it to PC and actually plays decent. IV was a terrible port indeed, but after fiddling with settings and drivers for a few hours I finally got it to run well. While the game was somewhat repetitious that didn't stop from spending over 200 hours in the game.

    What did I buy that $250 video card for if they aren't supporting pc games? This is crap. I had a premonition as the card blew out several years ago after a power failure and I'm happy I didn't buy a new one. Played star wars like crap too. By the way, the onboard video is going now. Amd/Nvidia good luck!

    I've never been much of a console gamer, I would appreciate them releasing a version for the PC. Honestly, I don't get why this has to even be an issue....
