Finally a release date for GTA 4 on the pc - 21/11/08. Pre Order from Play.com for £24.99

According to news item on theregister.com:

Murder, guns, drugs and car-jacking are all set to take over the PC, because video games developer Rockstar has confirmed that the biggest game of the year is coming to the desktop.

Grand Theft Auto: IV for the PC will be released in the US on 18 November and on 21 November in the UK, cunningly just in time for Christmas.

PC gamers will have one advantage over their console counterparts though, because Rockstar has confirmed that the PC version includes a newly-expanded multiplayer mode.

Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar, confidently boasted that GTA IV looks and plays beautifully on PC.

Good news, always fancied having a go at this.

No seriously this is a great game and if you have a computer that can play games effectively at medium to high graphics you should buy this game and this version can be modded, although the xbox 360 and ps3 games are getting fairly low in price. I have the ps3 version and it is a brilliant game.

eh!? make sense boy.....we know its coming out on the PC.....

Thanks :-D

Great deal.

thanks heat and rep added been waiting for this for pc for a long time

nice.
anyone know what system requirements we're expected to have? minimum, and to play it on max etc

oh, cant wait for this. Thanks for the heads up

Is this an announcement or a deal?

Both I suppose gd_miester. Play will probably be the cheapest preorder as they usually are with pc games in my experience.

Only problem is that play.com upped their prices recently and everyone else followed suit (Except for GAME as they were already charging the most :p) - so there don't seem to be any pre-order deals at all around now for many games.

All PC games are either £24.99 or £29.99, rather than the £17.99 they used to sell for. Bit of a shame really - puts me off from buying games i'm not 100% sure about now - I just stick to the sure fire hits, which I guess GTA4 is.

I bet i'm not on my own - I used to buy 2 or 3 games a month, now I find that over the last couple of months i've only bought one game ...

Good price for a top-notch game, wonder if it(and it's controls) will feel as solid on a PC though.

omg uber, ordered and heat added thanks

Its a Games for Windows game so it'll be preconfigured for a 360 pad, so should play identically but just look alot better.

Well worth in picking up a wired 360 pad if you haven't got one.

Thanks, as i have money at the momment think i'll order it and order a 360 pad for my PC too. It b a nice surprise as i'll forget about it lol

Do you need the pad to play this?

Do you need the pad to play this?



Unlikely... Like GTA:SA im sure it will have dual controls to suit both keyboard and pad fans.

Do you need the pad to play this?



Nope. It just means the 360 pad will work purrfectly with it.

Plus it looks like it's a "Games for Windows - Live" title so it'll have achievements! :-D

Thanks - I've placed an order

An idiotic move imho. Most people have either (a) Got tired of waiting and bought it on console already or (b) Got tired of waiting.

It'll put the console versions to shame graphically too, which will make the fanboys cry.

I remember the orginal game was for the pc, that was a wicked game.

Nice one - can't wait for this
