It’s been a long-hard wait for hardcore and even the casual ones that Rockstar is almost year late to finalize the release of GTA 5, first it was set for previous year November according to rumours but later Rockstar decided notch-back and worst thing is they are still to decide whether the game will be out for PC or not. The scenario for all GTA fans who only own PC doesn’t look bright as there aren’t even official system requirements confirmed.
Currently, the game is marked up for PS3 and XBOX 360 platform and may even be available for next-gen XBOX and PS4. Even as a PS3 owner I’m not quite impressed with the decision of company to stepback for PC platform, an obvious reason could be to avoid Piracy and shrugging loss it can cause but gaming console are also not completely restricted to piracy and can be easily hacked to save money from buying expensive games and rather getting them for free, doesn’t sound cool? Although, I’m not a big fan of stealing software but the pricing of most of them just get over my head, especially when I’m a average earning family and you have to value every penny you spent.
Although, genuine gamers are likely to buy the original copy of the game but in my circumstances where you mainly play for fun, just casually move around and have least chance of beating the game then it would surely be a total waste of money. Coming back to the game, I was not quite impressed with the previously released GTA IV. For me, the biggest disappointment in the game for me was there no Jumbo Jets and ineffective cheat codes as compared to San Andreas, other dark side was the game was poorly ported to PC and failed to run well even on the best of machines and the only bright side was the vast improvement in graphics and maybe a little in gameplay.
