Make up your mind people

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?

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer

  • Jonah Cash

    Hahahahaha…. What master race???? Consoles baby!!! (Run and hide under table)

    • Rock789

      Precisely… Master race indeed… What a load of…

      “Wait… I didn’t mean what I said… I was just joking! No, there’s no need for that bat… I love PC gaming, I really do…”

      (quickly puts on foil hat and joins Jonah under the table)

    • Robert Infy Hart

      Fear us.

      • TiMsTeR1033

        fear what?

        • Robert Infy Hart

          The Master Race.

      • Jonah Cash

        This is the only thing that I fear, cause it says so on the cover….

    • John ain’t got time to bleed

      With your unrivaled accuracy with those knobbies it should be no competition.

    • Dakan45

      AHAHAH consoletards baby, no idea wtf they talking about, all gta games were anounced on pc a few months after the console version and rocsktar torronto ported them, NOT rockstart north, same case since gta 3.

  • Vampyre Squirrel

    Guess what I’m getting before all you PC jockies!!! hahahaha!!!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      A PK for gloating! ;P

    • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

      Hollow victory SINCE YOU GAME ON CONSOLE!

      :P

      • Hammersteyn

        A victory none the less?

        • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

          Its like kissing your cousin, sure you kissed a girl, BUT ITS YOUR COUSIN

          Disclaimer: No personal experience, not covering for myself, just stating fact

          • Hammersteyn

            Bwahaha, don’t worry I won’t tell. As always consoles may win a fight here and there but PC will win the war.

          • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

            Indeed. You must chat with me on Skype, we need to discuss Planetside 2

          • Hammersteyn

            I found a couple of Admirals on skype but they are all in the states

          • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

            Its not Admiral on skype, its real name and surname.
            Business and all

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            Yes, yes. Very serious I see.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Ive never used skype lol

          • Hammersteyn

            Thank goodness for Google.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            What war? *buff dust off nails*

          • Hammersteyn

            Indeed :)

      • Vampyre Squirrel

        Actually I game on console AND PC… so you still lose

        • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

          Fence sitting I see.

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            I also have both. But there is a clear winner.

          • HvR

            I think the correct term is platform whore.

            I’m also one, don’t judge me.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            you dirty whore you!

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            Do you say that to yourself in the mirror?

          • TiMsTeR1033

            It works wonders

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            So does a bath :/

          • TiMsTeR1033

            its not my fault! I cant help that the bath was broken! :(

          • Hammersteyn

            I’m also a whore then. We could start a brothel!

          • TiMsTeR1033

            how much you charge 5 doll hair love me long time?

          • Hammersteyn

            Very long time!

    • Dakan45

      Guess what we gonna play before you consoletards? A TRUE NEXT GEN EXPERIANCE on pc with better controls, current crapboxes cant handle gta v on all its glorry.

      • Vampyre Squirrel

        Don’t worry, I’ll be there with you, cos I got a gaming machine too. lmao

    • Dooshe Nozzle

      HOOORAY YUO GET 2 PLAY IT FRIST

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I’m fairly sure it’ll arrive on PC eventually, but then RDR hasn’t, so who knows. I’m not really that phased by it, if it gets announced that it won’t there will be an “awwww :(” moment, but then I’ll get on with my life & play something else & never think about it again.

    • Tarisma

      I don’t think ill be playing it on either my PS3 or PC. I can’t be the only person who got bored with GTA4.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        It’s on my backlog. I’ll get to it eventually because I enjoyed all the others.

        • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

          I just remembered I have it too. Haha, never even installed

      • Hammersteyn

        GTA4 was underwhelming to be honest. The hype was to big I think.

      • Wtf101

        No you are not.

      • Dakan45

        Nope it was a boring piece of trash.

    • Iblis Bane

      RDR at least was, IRRC, pretty clear from the start that it was going to be console only. (Boo! Hiss!)

      I hope GTAV does hit the PC…It’s one of 2 games that I’ve really been looking forward to. (The other being Rome II.)

      I’ll be disappointed if it doesn’t.

    • Dakan45

      RDR was made by san diego on a diffirent source code. LA noire was made by non rockstar studio, a rockstar studiod ported it and they made max payne 3 on pc as well. Even bully was ported to pc.

    • joujou264

      Is this one of the fabled ”GTA critique” comment sections? Finally I’ll be able to let off steam. GTA is overhyped, to the extreme, to the extreme of extreme. It gets quite boring after a while. And I’ll still have a life if I don’t play it contrary to what some GTA fanboys might say.

  • Tarisma

    I think he let the cat out of the bag. Probably will come to PC.

  • silverscorpio

    I think there is talks and it is too early for them to comment on that. They let the cat out of the bag because they would not have mentioned GTA V if there was not something.

  • ElimiNathan

    Yup cat is out the bag, they spoiled Rockstars big suprise

    • Agent.E

      I read your name as Illuminati.
      WHO ARE YOU WORKING FOR?!

      • ElimiNathan

        Go back to school :P

        • TiMsTeR1033

          funny enough you look like I guy I went to school with lol

          • ElimiNathan

            Lol well what school did you go to ?

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Im not gonna say, but I will ask this if your from CT then I dont know you. If from joburg then ,maybe.

          • ElimiNathan

            Haha, well I have lived in Joburg but I went to school in East London and currently live in CT

          • TiMsTeR1033

            nope then i saw your clone lol

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            Sometimes I wonder what some of your people look like in person. Clearly, as you all can see, I am a wolf.

  • Uberutang

    Steams sale Summer 2014 $10

    • Hammersteyn

      Probably 2015 if GTA IV is any indication. Damn this sucks balls if you don’t have a console.

      • Uberutang

        Luckily buying, renting or borrowing a console is cheap and easy. But tbh I would rather wait, or not play at all then go back to 30fps 720p.

        Last of us was a great game, but hell the textures bugged me all the way through the game! (‘cut scenes’ was amazing though)

      • Skyblue

        I am seriously considering waiting for it on PC. Walked in to pre-order from BT the other day and walked again when I realised I had no idea if I want to play it on PS3 or X360. PS3 would be easier coz of my kid always hogging the X360 but I prefer the controller on the X360… decisions decisions

        And you know I’ll prob end up rushing out to buy it next month on release day…

      • Dakan45

        Oh i have a console but i am not gonna play at 1280x720p at medium settings with 24fps on average and horrible thumbsticks aim assist and no mods

        • Hammersteyn

          Haha yeah. PC definitely Ftw in the graphics department.

    • Skyblue

  • http://www.facebook.com/khulie.ndlovu Khulani Ndlovu

    Well it would have been awesome having the game come out on all platforms, Nvidia might have just spoilt the surprise but i’m sure very soon Rockstar will officially announce GTA:V on PC :)

  • Trebzz

    Best news ever bwahhahahahahhah… But lets be honest there will be a GTA for next gen and then all of the sudden PC will get one :P by that time i have spoiled the shit out of this game for everyone.

    • Hammersteyn

      Spoiler alert! Man U will win another title.

      • Trebzz

        Spoiler alert! Liverpool next season is our season :P

        • Hammersteyn

          Liverpool fan? Why the Man U avatar?

          • TiMsTeR1033

            confused african

          • Trebzz

            Lol no I’m saying that’s what they say all the time :P

          • Hammersteyn

            Hahahaha like the Stormers….

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            OH NO HE DIDN’T!

          • TiMsTeR1033

            sharks!!!!! will erm something to you!!!

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            I feel very uncomfortable talking about sports at any time but Timster, you have found yourself an ally.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            An ally indeed!

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            Brilliant

          • ElimiNathan

            Sorry I just had to downvote that

          • Hammersteyn

            It’s fine I deserve it. So 24 -24 on Newlands last week end.(I deserve 50 downvotes for that :P)

          • ElimiNathan

            Lol! We threw it away, so no sympathy necessary

          • Hermann Schwindt

            Brofist. Was expecting to lose by atleast 30 points against WP.

        • Skyblue

          Only because you guys get to rest for European competition. ;-p

        • Jonah Cash

          No come now, we aren’t all like that….. It will be at least two more seasons before we start competing at the top again….. Hahahaha…. Why are you guys not buying anyone though? I think Baines would be good for you, but Fellaini… I don’t think he would fit your system at all!!

          • Trebzz

            Liverpool sold Downing and Carrol after spending how much again? :P but yeah this season transfer market has been so boring :/

          • Jonah Cash

            Would you have kept them at their reported salaries or rather take your knock up front instead of in instalments each month???? But remember we got 50m for Torres and used 35m on Carrol and 22m on Suarez…So 7m for Suarez came from our own money, not tooo bad even though he is a back stabbing son of a b…… Just like your Rooney, ungrateful brats I tell you!!!

  • http://xelusprime.wix.com/ettiennev Xelus

    Bah! Glad to hear that, one less crappy port to worry about, we saw what happened with the previous GTA! Keep it I say.

    Do a proper job about it or leave it, tired of half assed ports.

  • Mark Treloar

    Cat Bag

  • John ain’t got time to bleed

    Then it is, then it isn’t.

    • TiMsTeR1033

      will prob happen next year or something esp after how many people want it.

    • Hammersteyn

      Aint got time to bleed? Jesse “The Body” Ventura – Predator.

      • John ain’t got time to bleed

        Ten points!!!

      • Skyblue

        I was 12 when I saw that movie in a cinema for the first time, sigh. It was my FAV MOVIE OF ALL TIME until I saw Aliens when I was 13.

        • John ain’t got time to bleed

          Careful now, you might just start a fight…

          • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

            Predator 1 >>>> Any Aliens movie

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            Damn straight!

            *runs off, turns back: “Get to da choppa!”*

          • Skyblue

            “You got time to duck?”

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            One of favourites, yet probably the lamest: When he kicks off the door, “Kock kock.” Then proceeds to shoot the guy with a grenade launcher.

          • Skyblue

            What about “stick around”?

          • Hammersteyn

            Enjoy if you have ten minutes

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDxn0Xfqkgw

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            Made my day. My favourite…”Consider this the divorce.”

          • Skyblue

            Total Recall !! Loved that movie as well.

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            What shite the remake was…

          • Skyblue

            I watched it on it’s own merit. It never felt like I was watching the original and I was expecting the worst so it wasn’t too bad for me. Completely forgettable 10 mins after viewing though.

          • Hammersteyn

            Agreed

          • Skyblue

            My personal fav of Arnie is Conan the Barbarian. If ever there was a case to be made for perfect casting, that would be a big contender.

          • Hammersteyn

            Can’t believe it’s ten minutes long O_O

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            It was between those two. Love that one.

          • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

            That movie is pure manly manliness

        • Hammersteyn

          It was the first me I saw on MNET as a child. It was a Friday evening and my parents had a braai. I remember it clearly still

          • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

            Watched it on VHS with my older boet

          • Hammersteyn

            Kids does not know about this thin call VHS.

          • Admiral Chief Zombie Slayer

            I feel old, thanks

          • Hammersteyn

            We had a BETA MAX before VHS. I feel ancient.

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            Wow. That’s legendary.

          • Skyblue

            Dude, I rocked Betamax as well lol!

            EDIT: Well my folks did. I kept that machine running for 10 years with an open top and pens to keep the tape from getting chewed… good times…hmmm?!?

          • Hammersteyn

            Yup, cleaning the heads with spirits so that the tape doesn’t pull. Can’t do that with a DVD player…

          • TiMsTeR1033

            they will be like a vh whaaat?

  • Skyblue

    Yeah fukken right! This bitch be banging out on PC by March 2014 latest.

  • Anonymous

    I knew it. GTAV is indeed coming out this fall… on consoles (17 September counts as fall).

    GTAV is a blockbuster title, which is coming out this fall on consoles. This is indeed true.

    It is also true that PC gamers are upgrading their rigs for blockbuster games “in general”. This is also very true.

    However just because they put two true statements together in a single sentence doesnt mean they are connected and that GTAV will be on PC.

  • Skapie

    Console is the best!! I don’t need to upgrade anything!!! If the game does not come out on PC…..i will send you a video how i play it on my Xbox!!! Hahaha

    • Kristian Kineser Middelhede

      “Console is the best”
      Lol… yeah if you are poor or too incompetent to use a PC then i suppose it is.

    • Dakan45

      Sureee you been playing on the same garbage graphics for 7-8 years.

      All games now run on consoles on LOW pc settings, pc has been “next gen” for some years now.

      Console=good for 3 years and trash afterwards.

  • ?????

    Too many grammatical mistakes… And they didnt say “its NOT coming to PC” or anything, they just said that they don’t know.

  • Affinity4Music

    This article’s title is supremely misleading.

  • NvidiaGraphicsDepartment2001

    For all you Huge PC Gamers my Name is Richard Hillerman and i recently have Been Let Go From NVIDIA For What im About to Say Here now. GTA V Is Being Quietly Worked on Thru The Back Channels Of RockStar and NVIDIA As There Are Many Conflicts In The PC Version Being Compatible With Graphics Cards older Than 2012, It Is A registry Error That is Causing the Game to Over Compensate and Stop Working, unfortunately GTA V was Supposed to be Announce September 13 that A PC version Would BE Available Christmas 2013, Now It Could Be More Towards January or Later Never Fear The PC Version Will Be Coming Regardless.

    FK You NVIDIA Fire Me and I Will Still Get The Word Out!!

    • Dakan45

      You work for ea so everything you say is a lie.
