Just yesterday Nvidia revealed, in their regular earnings call, that GTA V is coming to a PC near you in the not to distant future. The master race celebrated and cheered and made funny faces at the console gamers all day long, but maybe they should have put that champagne on ice.
Either the guys at Nvidia don’t have a clue about which games are coming up, possible since we are talking about the bean counters here, or someone at Rockstar sent over a severed horse head to the Nvidia offices as a warning.
Because early this morning Nvidia decided to clarify their comment from yesterday. First let’s go back and look at their comment again
“In contrast, gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises, such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto V and Assassin’s Creed IV.”
Okay that’s not very subtle at all but today Nvidia is saying
“Please note, during our Thursday’s earnings call, our investor relations team provided a list of important games that gamers are looking forward to on PC this fall, and included Grand Theft Auto V on that list. This statement was made with the intent of expressing enthusiasm for the games industry in general, and was not intended to represent specific knowledge possessed by NVIDIA. NVIDIA does not have information on any possible PC version release of Grand Theft Auto or its availability. We deeply regret the error.”
So yeah apparently they were just excited about the specific games that may or may not be arriving on the PC.
Call me cynical but I don’t believe that at all.
What do you think, did Nvidia let the cat out of the bag or did they really just make a wild guess?
