More evidence of GTA V coming to PC

GTAPC

We’re pretty damned sure Grand Theft Auto V (incidentally, our game of the year last year) is going to make its way to PC and possibly even the new consoles from Microsoft and Sony. The evidence for a PC versions is mounting. And now, there’s even more.

PC Gamer’s gone and analysed data from a 150-page debugging bug log that details problems people have had with various builds of the game from April 2009, all the way to August last year. According to them, a "PC version" has been referenced in the data since June 2012.

According to PC Gamer, the whole thing contains over “170 references to PC development bugs, numerous notes on DX11 support and a related "smog" weather setting, mention of a "lastgen" toggle used during development and bugs relating to 64-bit system testing.”

Here’s one such error log, detailing “PC Only Issues.” Other errors point to a x64 build just not behaving properly.

GTA-5-bug-list-1-610x165

The list has actually been available online since September last year, but got posted to a public Google drive recently, allowing everyone to disseminate its contents. It comes as the petition to bring GTA V to PC reaches nearly 660 000 signatures.

Regular retailer listings point to a PC version, with a rumoured release date of March 12 this year. Hopefully it’ll be better optimised than the PC version of GTA IV was – and hopefully modders will have a field day making Los Santos a better place when (and I say when with great confidence) GTA V comes to PC.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

Don't stop now.... you're having a good time

          • Kensei Seraph

            I think I remember something about PS2 being available on the PS4.

          • Gr8_Balls_o_Fire

            I believe it’s coming to PS4 soon.. Am I mistaken?

          • TiMsTeR1033

            I dunno..

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            They are working on it yeah, would really love to pwn some PS4 nooblets, if they ever bring out cross platform…

          • Gr8_Balls_o_Fire

            I will be one of them nooblets. I’m not too great at online FPS’s, but dang they are fun!

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            Its cool, join my squad and I will protect you ;)

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You should start calling yourself Reviver Chief.

          • VampyricSquirrel Monk

            That’s only if oVg joins!

            Admiral Chief Protector of the Nooblets

          • Hammersteyn

            Supposedly, but no mouse? Eish!

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            Janee, the infiltrator will be SEVERELY underutilized

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Me too, unless it’s cross-platform.

  • R1ker

    I am still laughing at that header – GTA 5 on stiffies, man that will be fun to install

    • VampyricSquirrel Monk

      Need more than one stiffie though… probably closer to 2 million odd?

      • R1ker

        and then the 2nd last one before you finish the install will be buggered.

      • TiMsTeR1033

        I remember fondly installing Shadow warrior and one of the disks were buggered, was such a let down!

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I remember having a game on 3 CDs, I think it was Doom 3, & the middle CD got a nice scratch on it. Thank goodness for pirate versions – downloaded that, edited the disk label of the ISO image to match mine, burnt it & it worked :D

          • TiMsTeR1033

            Ah the good old days

          • Gr8_Balls_o_Fire

            Now that’s good pirating

          • HvR

            This calls for one of Geoff’s Golden oldies

          • CaptainNemo42

            Wing Commander 3 was on four discs and Wing Commander 4 on seven I think.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I still have the Wing Commander Kilrathi Saga set on my shelf. Comes in one of those fat CD boxes :D Think that’s 6 or 7 discs.

          • CaptainNemo42

            I wish I still had my WCIII and IV boxes. I lost it somewhere in a move years ago. I’m now sad panda :(

        • HvR

          So much “fond” memories from the early/min 90′s during the end of the stiffy era.

          Having an input stack of disks and output stack of disks, during the install I would pop out quickly for my mom to come in and “clean” the room.

          Downloading patches and custom content via a friends dail up connection (2 hours) and then copying it to 20+ stiffies with the help winrar compressiion and partitioning (another 2 hours) carefully transporting the stack only to found something got corrupted along the way.

          • TiMsTeR1033

            That feeling of wanting to break something….Priceless

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            heh I remember that. Multi-disk compressed files were really handy. I used to use arj though.

          • R1ker

            I remember at my previous company i had to do a re-install of windows 95 from stiffies I think it was either 25 stiffies or 45 – can’t remember the exact number. You can imagine what fun that was

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            We had Win95 on disk too. It was around 20-odd I think.

    • Hammersteyn

      Imagine one breaks or is unreadable, Say number 5611

      • R1ker

        My thoughts exactly – I still have a copy of x-wing somewhere in that dark closet of mine that i was never able to play.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    This reminds me, I should check tonight if that GTAV PC download torrent is still around. Some people.

    • VampyricSquirrel Monk

      The chances, they are high.

      • TiMsTeR1033

        Very high

  • TiMsTeR1033

    It prob will be coming out soon, the only thing that would be better is higher resolutions, better textures and no popin textures and greater draw distance… The rest will be the same. The poor Pc gamers need to feel the love too!

  • TiMsTeR1033

    I hope GTAV 1.10 update adds heists I need them!! need to get my Xbox live back, damn Jan is a kak month..

  • Mossel: A Tale of One Mollusk

    It’s official. Cant argue with that stiffy.

    • TiMsTeR1033

      Stiffys don’t talk much…

      • Mossel: A Tale of One Mollusk

        My stiffies used to make that horrible grinding sound whenever it got jammed.

        • Anon A Mouse

          More Lube required..

          • Mossel: A Tale of One Mollusk

            LOL! Well played.

    • VampyricSquirrel Monk

      That’s what she said!

      • Admiral Chief in Vegas

        Indeed, if my wife asks me if she looks nice, I use that term “can’t argue with this stiffy”

        • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

          Hahahahaahha. GG

      • Mossel: A Tale of One Mollusk

        ;)

  • DrKiller

    Too early to start betting how big the install will be?

    • Admiral Chief in Vegas

      30gb? 40gb?

      • DrKiller

        How much money do you put down with your bet? :P

        • Admiral Chief in Vegas

          I say 36.3 GB and I RAISE FIVE ZIM DOLLAHS

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      MP3 was a 30gb dl, I’d expect GTAV to be at least that.

    • Anon A Mouse

      At least 35 stiffies.

      • VampyricSquirrel Monk

        50mb? Nah, more in the region of 350 stiffies or 3500

        • Admiral Chief in Vegas

          500mb?

          • VampyricSquirrel Monk

            Quick edit while you were typing :P

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            Too late, you fail mathzors :P

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            Heh, too late :P

          • VampyricSquirrel Monk

            Damn… can push it to 35000 stiffies for the 50gb install :P

          • Admiral Chief in Vegas

            When is your birthday, gotta get you a calculator or something ;)

          • VampyricSquirrel Monk

            It’s in June… and I have a calculator on my laptop and cellphone

        • Anon A Mouse

          Oh you guys want the WHOLE game not just the intro? (And yes I know it’s far too few stiffies)

          • VampyricSquirrel Monk

            your 35 might cover the intro… maybe

  • fred

    It will be here soon , master race people.

  • Corrie Botha

    Hoping it comes soon so I can get back into GTA online since the Xbox wasn’t kind with my crappy little cap , btw here’s the build log https://googledrive.com/host/0B-JdId1SslCJNEIweDFobGl2MzA/builds.xml

  • BritishRambler

    This evidence is indisputable.

  • Avithar

    Xbox 360 was 2 disks, how many stiffies will the PC version be lol?
