QUOTE(Take2)
New York, NY August 6, 2008 Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto IV will be arriving on the PC on November 18th and 21st in North America and Europe, respectively.

"We are very excited to be releasing the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "The whole team is dedicated to bringing an amazing gaming experience to the PC. The game looks and plays beautifully on PC and we can't wait for people to play it."

Developed by series creator Rockstar North and set in Liberty City, the latest installment in the enormously successful Grand Theft Auto series features a painstakingly detailed and life-like city for players to explore; a rich, immersive narrative experience; an original soundtrack highlighting the cultural eclecticism of Liberty City; and newly expanded multiplayer just for the PC.

I'd imagine they develop the PC version alongside the console versions and hold it back for a few months while they polish it and iron out bugs.
It'll be interesting to see some screenshots and whether it'll be Vista exclusive and whatnot.

i'll get it if good mods come out for it... maybe the MTA guys will make some mods for multiplayer, that would be awesome, designing your own maps like they made in SA made the multiplayer a lot more fun

I'll see what the PC requirements are, but as I already decided I'm going for the consoler version, I see no point in paying twice for the same game. Mods, multiplayers and cheats are worthless addition for me.

The multiplayer in the console version is a huge late down, i spent 40mins last night trying to join a game that lasted more then 5mins without cutting out. Then gave up and turned the xbox off completely as it put me in a bad mood. Everytime i play GTAIV now something crops up to sway my great opinion of it now.

so finally, after half a year, the pc fanbois can rejoice... what a victorious event... wacko9.gif

I doubt many pc guys can play it at the same visual quality us consolieros have unless they upgrade their systems.
maybe... if there's a bunch of great mods later on, I might consider getting it after it drops to 10bucks or turns abandonware.

We do have a page on the site for them, however nothing has been announced so far, so it's all speculation.
