GTA IV PC release date

UPDATE – GTA IV PC version – out now

Buy: GTA 4 for the PC from Amazon.com

Original article: One eagle-eyed reader of our blog a release date for GTA 4 for pc has been spotted in the manual of the Xbox 360 version of GTAIV. Apparently on 13th December 2008 Niko and Roman will be finding a place on your Windows start menu just in time for the Christmas. No details on what additional GTA4 PC version features will be included, if it will be a Vista-only release or what minimum hardware will be required – but best put in a word to Santa for the latest Alienware hardware just in case.

    mmmm…. any evidence to back this up?

  2. Morbus says:

    nah. It’s a console title, it will run on XP and will run just fine on e6600 2GB ram and x1950xtx… just like every other port.

  3. John says:

    Well, according to people with game manuals, this isn’t true… No1 found any PC release date in the last page of the game manual.

  4. John says:

    btw by people I mean 2 people who aren’t that good with English, so this isn’t 100% sure. If some1 has a manual, check this and let us know!

  5. GTA Guy says:

    man i need this game! i wood buy 360 or ps3 but my parents don’t wanna spend money on a system for 1 game! I need GTA!

  6. Dave says:

    Its a shame because is this not the 21st century? i also heard october release for pc but to be honest thats still to long… there taking the michael out of us they should atleast have the courtesy to let us know that there even working on it.
    so all in all if its not out in the next few weeks im not gonna bother buying it especialy if they try to RErelease it for christmas sales.

  7. sherman says:

    Be dumb to come out that late. spore comes out in september.

  8. Antipop says:

    Yeah, will be the best version. Better graphics, smoother, dedicated online servers, probably 50+ mp servers too, not just 16… should be sweet. :)

  9. Johnn Costello says:

    IN 7 months? i an’t wait that long…i… i just can’t…BOOM (shot myself in the head)

  10. ArScAn says:

    I read the 360 manual and didn’t find any evidence of the pc version…I’ll take a better look again later but I beleive it”s fake… Waste of time but I’m sure it will be released soon…

  11. ArScAn says:

    Was this news verified before publishing? Please post some evidence… I read all the 360 manual and there is nothing there!!!

  12. Dam Man says:

    Wow the PC gets the shaft again! October, December?? either one is lame, really hate take two for this everytime.

  13. I just can’t wait 7 months,i can tell ya,it won’t be 7 months,the game will be released in 2 or 3 months. They are just trying to make us nervous so that we won’t wait and to make us buy 360 or ps3. I’ve watched several trailors and i personaly think that it’s the best gta and maby best game ever made.I love gta 3 cuz of the liberty city and it’s great ro have the game back to liberty city.And by the way,if anyone HAVE THE SITE WITH BETTER DECRIPTION OF GTA 4 PLEASE SEND ME E MAIL WITH THAT SITE,my e mail is: mceminem7@yahoo.com.

  18. John says:

    OK after a few checkups I found out that it’s not true. There’s nothing that hints about the PC port in the xbox360 manual. The user lied.

  19. Toingz says:

    yey,this suck.Why the hell is it on Decemder

  20. Toingz says:

    this is bull, now I’v got to wait for months

  21. Goblin says:

    In the past it took 6 to 12 months for Rockstar to release their previous installments of the GTA games to PC, however, previous games were not released on XBOX and you never know what kind of agreement Rockstar made with Micro**** about the release on XBOX. For all we know the agreement forbids Rockstar of making PC releases. I hope its not the case though and I hope that by november/december the game will be released for PC. It won’t be a Vista only release because that is idiotic, if anything it won’t work on Vista because Vista is a pile of incompatible crap and will go down in history as a failure in OS, just like Windows ME. Its just a matter of time before Microsoft will acknowledges it, cause no business in their right mind will install that memory hungry, slow, ugly, and user unfriendly garbage on their employee desktops. But sorry, i am getting off topic, chances are there will be a GTA IV Windows release in 6 to 18 months. The user who said Dec 13, 2008 lied.

  22. V3ND3TT4 says:

    Well GTA: San Andreas and Vice City was released for PC so they should release GTA IV for PC aswell, but they do have problems making engough copies of the game because it gets soldout in the stores so fast. So only time will tell.

  23. bugga says:

    stupid ****… why the hell not release it at the SAME *****ing time?

  24. dicanio says:

    dont be so down guys, sure gta 4 is a great game but being a pc gamer myself i dont really mind waiting for the release.
    we all (should) know the financial reasons for releasing on console only for the first 6 months.
    All in all although the game is looking fantastic im 100% sure that once pc gamers get to play it they’ll think well it is much better than SA but im damn glad i didn’t waste money on a console just to play GTA 4!!!
    we’ll get it eventually and it’ll be great but dont get sucked into the hype and think about getting a 360/ps3 just to play it.
    I had a birthday come and go recently and the wife asked if i wanted a ps3 and i said no – sure MGS and a few other titles are looking good but all i have to do is look at my ps2 gathering dust next to my ps1 to know my pc is king and NO game would convince me otherwise.
    Hold tight pc owners – we will get the best version and lets not forget pc gamers have been playing SA multiplayer forever already, multiplayer is nothing new to us :)

  25. vista lover says:

    vista rules the world and this game will run if u got a good computer.

  26. dicanio says:

    im dumb and i like mac it rules u dumb vista lover

  27. xp lova says:

    i cant wait 4 seven months. thats a long wait. please i wish it comes out for pc. If it does come out im gettin it

  28. Kristaps-K9[Lv] says:

    OK with those 12 to 18 months youre making everyone nervous …if ill have to wait that long ill just work the summer and buy PS3 rather t5han whait 18 months..

    damn i can bet that rockstar has something against PCs because the xbox 360 and ps3 are new consoles and they hope that pc users will change their 1000$ (or more)whorth PCs for a black or white box that has a hard drive and internet conection.

    IT SUCKS!!!!:(

  29. Merwiz says:

    7 months?????****!!!!!i though is gonna be ****ing realeased on october or november but december…WTF??

  30. Salman says:

    Vista sucks. I use Win XP.

    Lets hope this game comes out soon on the PC. And don’t worry guys there are ways to hack a Vista on;y game to be playable on XP.

  31. Patrick says:

    as a reply to dicanio, us pc gamers have been playing multiplayer since gta 3 came out on it, it also had multiplayer, but it wasn’t as popular as SA was.
    But theres one thing your very wrong about.

    MGS:4 is worth buying a ps3 for. It’s truely the most amazing game you’ll ever play, and I can 100% assure you on it.

    Also, The one bad part about it, the gta part, is for us pc gamers, your going to need a Nice Ass computer, and I’m positive on that one.

    with the graphics this things pushing is going to take alot to play. Standard pc’s aren’t going to handle it.

  32. Patrick says:

    He’s right though, Online play isn’t anything close to being new for us GTA pc-ers. You guys act like its such a big deal, but its not close. We’ve had it for so damn long and you guys think its a better reason for buying it. its not.

  33. Homer Simpson says:

    theres no proof he really saw that in the manual hes probably just lying like the swiss website that made a fake image of gta iv for pc and besides VISTA RUCKS (oops i mean:)SUCKS
    but hopeis not gone they probably create a pc version they wont forget us

    and one last thing the PC piracy up bull**** well… its bulls*** u can illegally download games for PS3 as well oh and DOH>.<

  34. Stu says:

    I’m not even sure I will buy it now, talk about forgetting who you owe your success to! Might just download it for making me wait that long.

  35. Morten says:

    1. Vista does not suck. It just has some backward compatibility problems. So what… So does Windows XP… You can’t keep using old stuff… That way, we’ll stay in the 21st century.

    2. GTA IV will arrive on PC. It’s the same thing with Assassin’s Creed. Microsoft are laying pressure on the game developers to postpone the releases of PC games, to let more users buy it for Xbox 360, or maybe even buy the console if they don’t have it.

    3. Heck, the PC version could already have gone gold. Maybe it’s ready for release, and just waiting for all the console owners to buy the game.

    4. Define standard pc? I mean, as it is now, a standard pc is at least 2 cores, 2gb ram and a geforce 8800. If you doesn’t meet that, you’ve got an out-dated system.

    5. The game companies should really drop the test machines (consoles), and release the games sooner (pc)!

  36. Mike says:

    I agree with you except point 4

    “Standard PC” what the hell do you mean?

    WtF would the point of buying a PC.
    My desktop PC, 4 years old with 5500 FX could have handled anything. Only modern games such as CoD4, Crysis ETC it wouldnt even start.

    I can assure you that this will be the minimum specs:

    OS – Windows XP or Windows Vista
    Processor – Pentium 4 2.8 GHz (XP) or 3.2 GHz (Vista) or equivilient
    Memory – 1.0 GB RAM (XP) or 1.5 GB RAM (Vista)
    Video Card -256 MB = this will be in my opinion 6 series mabye 6800
    Hard Drive – 6-12GB who knows, well 500GB is “standard”?
    Sound Card – DirectX 9.0c compatible

  37. FuzzySixx says:

    I just got a new pc w/ 4gb ram, 2.7 ghz amd dual core, 512 mb radeon hd 3650, and some non game related stuff. Do you think that would handle GTA IV? BTW it only cost me $620 including case.

  38. snoop says:

    Don’t know what the f**k u guyz are talking about. here in Kenya we have been waiting for GTA 4 since we got our independence….lol. anyway seriously, i have played all the GTA games and i think us pc users are always at a disadvantage. The Mic’s guys want us to buy the console plus the game. its basic economics. The law of supply and demand. And we are demanding, so we can sell our PC loyalty to the console devils. BUT we will prevail. just like our GeForce’s and our AMD’s. The world is ours for the taking….SOON.

  39. snoop says:

    By the way. how about a strike for the release of gta 4. seriously dudes. THE GAMING STRIKE. what do we do? flood rocktar and its affiliates with e-mails. run an online campaign. any ideas?
    and by the way, please razor1911 please come up with a solution for all this console cr*p.

  40. Poo Fingers says:

    I hate nerds.

  41. Hi, I’ve been studing the GTA IV PC problem. The XBox 360 GTA IV version is remarkably close to the programming for the PC.
    I SAY TO YOU ROCKSTAR if a copy for the PC is not released, a Xbox 360 emultion of the game will be (if not already) released for the PC, and be free to download on any PUBLIC DOMAIN TORRENT!!!!
    Heheheheheehe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. smellor says:

    didn’t ign have an interview with someone about its release date? Im sorry but its gonna be a much better game on pc whenever it comes out we’ve got mice! Also lets just hope that them bringing it out later means that there will be more. Aparently IV doesn’t have all the like upgrades you could get like say if you ride a bike for so long you could bunny hop higher they dont even have bikes… i think that was one of the winning features of GTA San Andreas because even when you’d completed the missions you still had something else to do. It’s a shame tbh, but im sure other elements of the game other than the graphics will be better. Toooo long though to wait its just stupid. It’s like spore… they announced it 2006 or something for 2007 april or even 2005 for 2006 april and then it didnt come out so they said autumn then they said spring again… now they say autumn? I mean this is good on the graphics front, that the graphics won’t be 2005, 2006 graphics but the gaming industries becoming a joke! Good thing steam is around to fulfill my gaming needs.

  43. REccON says:

    You people are all like PC’s are gonna have to be awesome to play GTA IV …
    If so then tell me how come Crysis was only out for PC?Why? Becos it’s the only platform strong enough to support it,therefor if u can play GTA IV on ps3 and 360,u won’t need nothing more than a 3 years old comp to run it on…

  44. idiots says:

    y cant u people just be patient? it will eventually come out, so just wait. but if you really do want it for your pc soon i would actually think going on a strike would be a good idea, for example ‘ flood rocktar and its affiliates with e-mails.’ as snoop said….i mite actually try that…

  45. Martin says:

    I seriously doubt that they will wait seven month before releasing it on PC, I will NEVER buy a PS3 or a 360 just to play one game.

    I really hope they could move their ass’es and get going with a PC version.
    Normally I download all of my games but this is (for sure) one game I will spend my money on, and go but it in the stores.

    It is, without a doubt going to be the best game of all times, and damn I’m glad i just bought a new monster PC, I will be running GTA IV just fine on my machine.
    I just cant wait to turn on all the graphics to the max, go straight towards the first car i see, pull the guy out and beat the living crap out of him!

    PLEASE ROCKSTAR, I promish I will never ever sexually assault my mother again, if you would just release the god damn game on PC :(

    (btw the thing with sexually assaulting my mother was a joke… IM STILL GONNA DO IT!)

  46. Martin says:

    @Fuzzysixx
    Yeah you will be able to play the game, i doubt you will be able to turn on all the eyecandy, but on a decent Medium GTA IV will run just fine on your machine.

  47. i am the king says:

    i hope gta 4 will never be released on pc

  48. Toni "the Money" Moni says:

    PC users are a large portion of rockstars market and they can’t afford not to make a PC version as the game was originally developed on a PC to begin with using Vista.

    Xbox is more PC than console so chill guys if its on the XBOX then it should be on the PC unless for some strange reason Rockstar are inbed with both console manufacturers and the PC has been given divorce papers ?

    Its all to do with $$$$$ and Rockstar is in the money business so chill it will arrive at least with better graphics, less bugs, glitches and faster internet/lan play WOOOT ! (maybe the potential for future mods, vehicles and add ons)

  49. Uros Pavlovic says:

    U picku materinu!!! Who to wait December!!! ARGH! :) HEheheeh

  50. bhagyesh says:

    Ihave XBOX 360 GTA 4 ………ITZZZZ the cool game i have ever seen the graphics r smooth and burnind the 360 ……..u all should try first on consoles …..coz if u r waiting for pc version ,first u should upgrade your pc by GeForce8800 Graphics card …….i have GTA4 PC VERSION MODED but it want higher graphics card i have 7series GC it dont run smoothly …….ok so any body wantzz this cool game pc version can contact me.

  51. thangarajah says:

    please make it come quick i will be waiting for the game

  52. Tommie vercettie is back in town guys , but not on my PC!!! that’s a shame , for the game !!! Ha! got it ,shame -game ,ok leave it. But according to a friend of mine gta 4 is gonna be realeased in less than 5 months , maybe 4. but please can anyone tell me if there is any xbox 360 emulators like those for ps2s :(

  53. Martin says:

    @the game 01

    I seriously doubt there are any existing emulators for the XBOX360, a really really good computer can hardly handle the PS2 emulator so i doubt it can handle an XBOX360 emulator.

    Why bother anyway?

    Like “Toni “the Money” Moni” says, its gonna be released to PC with less bugs glitches etc.. perhaps a few add on’s too :)

    Orh! But I understand you guys, I cant wait either, maybe if rockstar had given us a date of the release, but they havent, and thats the worst kind of waiting, its like waiting for someone but you dont know the estimated time of arrival. Pitty :(

    @bhagyesh Luckely, i got a 8800Geforce, no thats not right, i got 2 :D
    becides that an Intel Quad Core running at 3.6ghz with liquid cooling and 4Gigs of ram, i think i will be able to max out the settings :) dont you?

    Cheers

  54. jpl says:

    i hope theres for windows xp

  55. loph8 says:

    I heard a rumour of an august release date and I think this logical as many of games come out within 3 to 4 months of the console release date

  56. nithesh says:

    hi guys! I’ve played almost all the gta games on pc till gta san andreas. So do you ppl really think they’l release it 4 the pc??? I mean liberty city stories and vice city stories nvr made it to the pc!!!! Besides rockstar has no intention to announce the release date 4 pc. That’s a shame!!!

  57. zekkerjah says:

    nithesh: The thing is that both ‘stories’ editions for the PSP were spinoffs from the original Vice City and GTAIII which, in turn existed before PSP. I’d say that its naive to think that if a company doesn’t announce a release date, a product won’t show up. Its simple – if they announce it on the last moment, the hype generated around the game will increase its sales substantially.

  58. GTA Fan says:

    Man i bet this is gonna be the best game ever released (for pc for sure). BUT STILL I CAN’T WAIT ANOTHER 7 MONTHS. MAKE ROCKSTAR RELEASE IT QUICKER. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ANOTHER 7 MONTHS TO GO

  59. Morten says:

    The Stories, was plain ****. That’s why they didn’t bother releasing it for PCs!

  60. Ivan says:

    Its’ all about marketing and promotion. This “omerta” about PC release is another trick to put extra money in MS and SONY safes’.
    In my opinion, GTA 4 will come out for PC in autumn 2008. PC release was delayed because MS T2 R* and SONY have some contract standing for “temporary exclusive” console release. GTA VCS and GTA LCS were developed because of special order of SONY corporation. Their unique console release can’t influence on GTA4 PC release.

  61. rajashahid says:

    i want 2 play PC gtaIV i dont like these stupid ps and xbox i like only PC so please realese it very soon we are wating for gta new version please

  62. demon says:

    plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
    plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  63. Ivan Silni says:

    Damn you Bill Gates and yours XBox.

  64. loooool first thing 5500?? is it still exsists? lool better have a comodor instead of a 5500. you wish you can play gta 3 on it and can have gta san andreas wallpaper but still with lag and forget to play san andreas on it. and for sure forgett gta iv you wont even play her song on your pc cause it will be too gaddame lagggy.

    i played it on xbox 360 and finished it for 5 times now. its tooo bored. graphics on gamespot.com are so beautifull but in the game are little better then san andreas. so limited guns so limited cars so limited people so limited boats so limited heli’s inffect 2 heli’s only and around 20 cars tops. i played it and when i had 2 hours of gameplay i fad up and came so bored i prefer runescape from miniclip.com instead of this **** game gta iv

    **** you all rockstar gaymers and you people **** you little godddam bithes

  65. MRNONAME says:

    I heard that it will not be ported to PC because currently NO systems can support it. This is what I heard, just a myth guys, and I hope it comes out for PC cuz I am a PC and PS2 gamer. (no next-gen,too expensive)

  66. Loko says:

    Well..last time i bought a game it ended up crashing my PC cuz it couldnt take it, then i got even more angry and broke the old ****, Anyhow my new specs are:
    -Quad Core 2.4 GHZ
    -2 GB RAm
    -250 GB space
    -XP
    -Gefroce Nvidea 7900 GT 256 MB

    Can this ogre take GTA IV!??!?!? If not im…killing myself

  67. Trotter2k says:

    i can wait for the pc version , i would not even touch a 360 cuz its like fking Vista a load of ****hahaha Sony rule the console market on reliability :)

  68. magnus says:

    sony playstation and xbox sux bajs. I will never buy that ****. PC and Wii is all needed! GTA will come in September on PC

  69. Doddsy says:

    If GTA IV sells bucket loads in 2008 then I think Rockstar will def get a PC version out by dec.

  70. gAmer says:

    THE RELEASE DATE IS IN JUNE …!…

  71. Pierre says:

    you all speak k*k.. :D hehe just give us evidence and the real Release date.. Evidence as an a rockstar link or something that tells us “release date – blah blah” … PLEASE

    &
    thanks

  72. Monkey says:

    Looks like you’ll have to kill yourself there Loko, most likely need double the ram and sli with another 7900

    I think ill be safe though

    2x 8800GTX in SLi
    2x2gig + 2x1gig Crucial Ballistix RAM
    3.4Gig Dual Core AMD Athlon AM2 Black Edition
    Crosshair Mobo

    Everything Watercooled, built it myself :D

    No if the f**king game can hurry up and get released that would be great!

  73. The Bad Guy says:

    Do Not Worry PPL, Definitly there will be a PC Version … Its only a matter of time … Personally, I can wait for December may be the Next June too … [Patience is a Bless !], As Some Guy Said Earlier [Stu] – R* are forgetting who they owe their success to !
    —————————-
    n For those GeForce 5 Series Owners, 5200 n 5500 were F***** Gladiators, But that was 4 or 5 Yrs ago !!
    Im sorry to tell U that 5 n 6 Series are totally out of the list,
    the minimum will be 7 Series [late 7s], for Memory Bandwidth and Pixel Shader [ver 3] Purposes
    —————————-
    I agree with the GTA PCers Strike, Just let me know If U R serious bout that !

    n For those Consolers …
    Just Don get me started on the Console Vs PC Argument
    Don Tell Me PSs, XBoXs or Even Stupid Wiis
    All Consoles are No Match for PCs [Specially Gaming PCs …. XPSs, Dellienwares],
    30 or 40 Yrs Later – Just try to keep up with the count of the PSs released [PS-11, PS-12, PS-13 ….. PS n] :D:D:D

    The Only way Consoles Could have a Single Chance to Withstand PCs, [I shldnt be Disclosing this to consolers … Competitive Advantage, U Know :)],
    is when they allow U Consolers to Upgrade the hardware of the
    Console – like upgrading the stock Video Card for an all New 9 Series GeForcer or an A** kicking ATI

    n I Dont think their “Console-Directed” Minds would think about this !!

    Like the Old Say Goes …. Consoles Rise and Fall, PCs Stands Strong

    i want to play GTA IV on my pc!!

  76. dinos says:

    Guys all games are made on PC. So the first release is on PC and then they make the versions of PS3 and XBOX 360 so they can sell miliions of copies and when they have sell as much as they want they realese the pc version in which propably they won’t sell anything. ( i have seen a video with someone of rockstar games playing gta iv on pc at an interview.

  77. Joey Bishop says:

    The reason R* wont release it on the PC early is because all of you idiots will pirate it, so they have to make their money somehow.

    Enjoy ruining the PC gaming industry.

    I think thet Rockstar games shoud stop with the this “NO Comment when the game is coming to the PC , so you should buy PS3 or Xbox 360”. Monopoly

    Ovo je velika kradza od PC-a.

    The good news is that if you wait for half the time they delay the release date, after it is released you will be able to purchase the game for half the original price.

    I would only buy a console for blueray – quite playing consumers for idiots as one day the consumer will fight back.

    A friend of mine works for Rock*!
    and he says that its !TOP SECRET! if its coming out for PC, Which must mean yes… lol well anyways he’s a programer of GTA IV and if he doesn’t know, then who will??

    but he said if it did it will need a top spec PC in able to run correctly.
    Alienware maybe?

    Your need a PC capable of running full HD style graphics, with a lot of spare hard drive space.
    plus a high end sound card… as this is the main reason for lagging in PC games – 24bit or higher.

    I think it should come out on the fantastic *APPLE MAC*, it’s the best £1200 i’ve ever spend.
    even though if it does come out on PC i can use Parallels desktop to run my emulated WIN XP & Vista, to play it – and as i have a MAC i can use its Full HD screen, brill graphic, 3.6GHz core 2 duo, 4GB memory and an external sound blaster 24bit sound card for HD sound … i already play San Andreas on it though my vista emulator.

    well anyway thats my input… if i hear anymore from my mate i’ll let you know!

    Sorry to rain on your parade, but i read somewhere on a website that it will take nearly 2 years for it to be suitable for PC… I am a PC gamer and I hope that it comes out on PC sooner, So I hope that it is false information… The site info said that the Xbox360 in itself is a very powerful PC, dedicated about 70% to graphics and this is why it will take so long for PC

    If it comes out for PC,great! If it doesnt, dont buy a console just for it.Dont play it on a console if you dont like the interface, just ait for the next one. I have an xbox which i love for racing games and such but for a game as involved as gta, only PC will do, much more control.

    Anyhow, be patient, if it comes, good,if it dont i still enjoy san andreas heaps! I wont spend money twice on the same game, thas dumb. Even if you are selling the console one for less after…

  94. I need the guy.
    I don’t have the money to buy a console.
    Can’t wait any longer need to have the game now.

    I think that gta iv will be released but a lot of us wont be able to buy it (at least in LATVIA) because of weak PCs or the game will be sold out and the only option will be to buy the much more cheaper russian language gta iv(everything in russian language)from the russian publisher of the game (if it will have one–but i hope it doesnt) :)
    Aboutthe pc specs i think the min would be—
    2GB of ram At least 256MB graphic card which has large clock frequencies and 2.4 or 2.8 GHZ intel core 2 procesor

    My Specs
    2GB ram
    2.4GHZ ntel core 2 duo
    640MB nvidia 8800GTS graphic card
    STRIKER motherboard
    (Its an average game system cost me about 600-700$ or 800Ls but its fully adjustable for the most demanding games like CRYSIS or TIMESHIFT) :)

    BIG GREETINGS FROM ME AND LATVIA

    P.s. I REALY WANT GTA IV ON PC!—–YOU HEAR ME ROCKSTAR?

  100. Kristaps-K9[Lv] says:

    OH YEA
    about the VISTA Versus XP– I think that it wont be a probelem cuz if the game will be released only on VISTA then you can split your hard drive into two halfs- on one half your XP and on the other you can download a piratic Windows Vista. Or you can buy another hard drive which is easier(if you dont understand that much of PCs) and if you want a original windows VISTA you need BIG $$$

    I STIL WANT GTA IV ON PC!

ACCORDING TO SCREENSHOTS GTA IV WILL BE THE BEST GAME EVER (IT’S GOT RATING 10/10 STARS :D)

    AND DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON STUPID ADS AND MARKETING, JUST WAIT A LITTTLE TIME! I’M 1000000000% SURE OF THIS (EVEN THAT I DON’T HAVE EVIDINCE THOUGH :D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GTA IV has to come out for pc. If it doesn’t the world will explode. Also, if it comes out, be sure to buy it and not to download it. Because if you do you won’t be able to use multiplayer.

  115. Guys,i been playing Grand theft auto for three years and i still investigating
    about this New GTA because,i will have find the hidden Features such as
    Illegal Street Racing,a Modified Panzer III tank (actually Powers a Jet Engine)
    and new Weapons.

    i hope you understand this Message….

  116. Oops one more thing,some forums say that GTA IV has included a new and improved Infernus,i hope it is not Lamborghini (i wish it is a R390 or Bugatti or Vice Versa)

  117. Squarecirclehair says:

    I wouldn’t worry about gta4 not running on pcs. In fact PC games overtook console’s capabilities last year, with the makers of Crysis saying it would be impossible to port the game to consoles, because consoles don’t have good enough hardware.

    As with all previous releases of gtas, gta4 should be out towards the end of ’08, but it will have to compete with Spore and Fallout 3…

AND THEY CANT MAKE A SIMPLE GAME FOR PC AND SOME PEOPLE CANT AFFORD TO BUY A XBOX OR PS3 SO THEY HAVE A PC!!!!! I WANT TO KNOW IF RATMAN IN GTA IV ITS REAL!

  123. KhalidS19 says:

    First about vista and xp,xp iz better n about console vs pc,pcs r better and wat i know about GTA IZ THAT GTA IV FOR PC WILL BE RELEASED BECAUSE ROCKSTAR DIDNT TELL US ANYTHING ABOUT GTA IV FOR PC If ITZ COMIN OR NOT,BECAUSE WHEN THEY TELL US WE WONT BUY GTA IV FOR CONSOLE , SO FIRST… They are selling gtaiv for consoles then Us extreme pc gamers will get gta iv with more features.

    Corsair XMS2 2GB RAM

    can i play the game with that(above) specs???
    and why dint R* release the pc game first and let the consoles ppl suffer!!!!! after all consoles came from PCs!!

  129. Khalids19 says:

    ABOUT GTAIV GRAPHICS:
    Gta iv for pc will be havin the best graphics than for ps3 and xbox360 and the pc version must be havin more features than the gtaiv for consoles because the graphics card which are in ps3 and xbox360 are like nvidia 7 series graphics cards only while till today we pc gamers have greater and better graphics cards like the nvidia 8800 or 9800 which are more way better than the ps3 and xbox360 graphics

    and ABOUT GTA IV NOT BEING RELEASED FOR PC FIRST ITS BECAUSE:
    first, i told u people that when gtaiv comes for pc nobody will buy its console version,and because rockstar want more sales they must first release the ps3 and xbox360 versions and sell them when they think the sales go down they will release for pc in order to make gtaiv alive in the market and make more sales and i think there r only 2 or 3more months to wait.

  130. Daved says:

    Hey i want to know if you could really find RATMAN in GTA IV?? If you can and he is not a mod can you send a picture how he looks in the game?? PLZZZZ if you can THANKS!!

  133. Prayag says:

    GTA has released on 21 january 2004 but due to political issues the date has extended to 13 december 2008and in gta 4 it is copy of gta san andraes because i have lived in USA quite a long time and it has released in USA so if u want u can cotact me.And in pakistan GTA india has released in which first the opening state is Tripura . but it has only Union territories and GTA India the name of the main hero is tommy VErcetti of gta vc.

  134. KhalidS19 says:

    Stop joking u little *h*t we are talking about gta iv and not gta 4 vc

  135. Daved says:

  136. Daved says:

    Can you really find RATMAN in the game and if you can SEND ME A PICTURE OF HIM PLZZZZZZZ!

  137. Daved says:

    I think if you buy GTA IV for PC when it comes you have to download multiplayer i think LIKE YOU HAVE TO DO TO GTA SAN ANDREAS YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD IT TO PLAY IT I THINK……

  138. GTA MON says:

    You will not have to download multiplayer because think, there has not been a online mode that rockstar have created until gta 4. So it would come with the game and be used in the same as on the 360 – ps3 by using the mobile phone. I must say what a bag of shi7 that its not coming out on pc till dec!! I waited donkeys years for it to come out on the 360! So Rockstar get ur feckin finger out!!!

  139. Daved says:

    So the multiplayer will be on the Cd with the singleplayer?

  140. Daved says:

    Can someone send me a picture with RATMAN PLZZZZZZ Cuz i rally like searching in games for Myths CAN SOME ONE SEND ME A PICTURE FO HIM PLEASE?

  141. Daved says:

    PS:THE GAME WILL BE FOR WINDOWS VISTA NOT WINDOWS I THINK

  142. Daved says:

    NOT FOR WINDOWS XP SORRY

  143. Daved says:

    So can i still play the game cuz im only 11?HUH?

    Regardless if they port it for vista or not, there are ways to make the game playable on XP too

    like halo 2

  150. coma says:

    I will never EVER EVER buy a game from rockstar, I think it is just rediculious that they treat their customers like that ,ITS either you release it on PC or you don’t don’t play games with your customers…

    Well what do you know i found GTA iv FOR DOWNLOAD i download it and it wasnt the game it was A ********* VIRUS DAMN YOU ROCKSTAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ========================================

    I have to say I found this extremely funny.

    First of all the game has not been released for PC thus there should be no downloadable “pirate” version. Which should then lead you do the conclusion that if you are downloading the alleged “game” it will be nothing more then cesspool of every virus known to man.

    Second, your blaming Rockstar because you’re an idiot for believing pirates had released the game before the actual developers had.

    Conclusion
    1.) Spamming this page will not bring the game out any quicker.
    2.) Have patience; it is a virtue after all.
    3.) Downloading a game that hasn’t been releases is not the game you want but a boat load of viruses.

  156. _F_A_D_E_ says:

    Stop dissing Vista, XP sucked when it came out to u know, but after a few years drivers got updated computers got faster and RAM got cheaper so now it rockes, i used 98 SE for years after XP came out and ill use XP 4 a couple more years b4 i go to Vista, but i will because DirectX 10 rules. GTA 4 will come out eventually, like b4 christmas, rockstar would be shooting themselves in the balls if they didnt……

  157. bilal says:

    i need GTA 4 very badly
    plz release it. plz

    alienware is a ripoff

  159. adi says:

    xbox uses directx 9 and rockstar is a fair game developer so it will run on winodows xp, the issue is with the ageia physics , hope nvidia will integrate physics into their cards. but imho i dont think this game will ever see the light of pc gaming, i am looking forward to buy a console,(xbox 360).
    Btw vista sux, even bill gates admitted that vista sucks (google it) so why are you guys backing it up? all games vista only arent restricted to vista because of directx , they are made so u encourage microsoft to produce s**t.

    If u want games get a console or a XP-pc (untill linux games arive)
    If u need office programs just grab linux (free reliable , there arent even viruses for it, and it probably has firefox preinstalled :p )

    lol another of my retarded and long comments…..

    rockstar is jus teasn us…makn us pull out our hair over this prolonged matter…LOOK WHAT U MADE ME DO ROCKSTAR U MADE ME KILL MY FAMILY WITH A BAT….jus cuz they said the game promoted violence…shame on u….if they had released it sooner they would be alive…now this is on ur head…

    :) ill still by it….n put it on the net for men to download it heheheheheh

  161. Gabriel says:

    Guys guys, let your blood cool down! First off, R* would be fools to go for christmas sales on the pc market; much better to release for september. Second, someone mentioned PC software piracy? lol! If you want ANY game you can find a pirated copy’s torrent within about 2 minutes if you know where to look, and that goes for pc AND consoles. One thing that PC gamers have had for a long long time though is loyalty to developers, and if you happen to get a pirated game that you really enjoy and have the cash to spare, many of us will buy a genuine copy. The major selling point of GTA IV on the PC will be the fact that our systems (gamers) are better than any stock console, and we can force graphical features you console types have never even dreamed of. All in all, I do believe consoles have a point of existence: If all those idiots had no consoles, they’d come to PCs for their gaming, and imagine the state of PC gaming if they did!

  162. Ushandante says:

    I don’t think that GTA 4 will come to pc .I mean GTA 4 will be really big and even the 360 has some difficulties.(luckily ps3 has blu-ray, i have a ps3) the pc wont survive the acesseries needed for GTA 4

  163. Nemaju oni pojma says:

  164. you know guys if pc wasnt there then there was no damn XBOX 360!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  165. dumb******* says:

    Some of the stuff said in here makes my eyes bleed, either half of you are 12 yrs old or you’re all illiterate SOBs. First of all if you’d take the time to research the Xbox360/PS3 you’d realize they both have last-gen video cards in them (PS3 actually has a 7series Nvidia so that’s 2 generations behind)but yet GTA IV seems to run just fine on them, the only advantage consoles have over most decent(not high-end, dualcore, 2g ram, 8600gts and up) PCs is the processing power. Consoles have much less ram and like I said older video cards, they’re really nothing special compared to most newer computers in the price range of $1000. The only reason most people have problems with PC games even if they have a good computer is because they don’t know jack about PCs, i would bet money that a good 1/2 of problems people have with PC games is because of out of date drivers and viruses/spyware.

    Finally just to clear up any worries PC gamers may have about GTA 4 running on your system, my guess is as long as you have 2g ram, a dualcore CPU@2.4ghz or higher and a higher end 7series nvidia card or ATI equivalent (atleast 8600gt for 8series) and your computer isnt full of viruses and is up to date then you won’t have any problems running the game looking at least as good as the 360/PS3 versions. If you have anything less then that you’ll still probably be able to run the game with some of the graphical options turned down.

    BTW some of you console fanboys thinking the 360/PS3 are these all-powerful machines that no computer can match you are just plain *****, where the **** do you think the developers make the game in the first place? you think they sit there with a console designing and putting it all together, NO they make them on PCs just like all other games, so if you’re in doubt about there being a PC version of GTA 4 then i really wouldn’t worry considering it was most likely done before the console versions ever were.

    Okay, now i feel better after getting all of that out =P

  166. _F_A_D_E_ says:

    Ushandante, What r u on mate ? do some research, the 360 and ps3 r fairly lame if u line them up against a dual core or quad core running 8800 or better graphics card, seriously dude…..

  167. Steve says:

    Would be funny if they released GTA 5 on PC in October :D

    I’d be more than happy. But wouldn’t think this could even be true.

    Release date GTA 4 For pc : 30th november 2008. (normally)

  170. Jim Acrobi says:

    Let’s all face the facts… Game studios don’t give two solid sh**’s about us PC gamers. It’s all about the consoles now. It’s just that goddamned easier for developers to make a game on a console rather than a PC. There’s no hardware issues, controls are simpler, no operating systems to worry about… Soon we’ll be lucky to have any games released on PC at all.

    Never mind the fact that we gave the GTA franchise its start for f***’s sake. Ingrateful pack of c***’s that Rockstar are.

  171. GRAND THEFT AUTO IS RELEASING ON 13TH DECEMBER IS TOOOOOO LONG
    THE SYSTEM REQUIREMENT OF THAT GAME IS TOO HIGH I CAN’T WAIT TILL
    THE GAME COMES FIFA IS BETTER THAN GTA 4

    There are some strong indications to why Rockstar should release a PC version of GTA IV: they have done it with all the previous versions. As Nicolás in the post over points out: the status was updated on ESRB (although they removed it again – but it was listed as a windows game!). Last but not least: there is the potential to make some money with a PC release. But they will maximize the profit by keeping it secret, so they can make as many as possible buy the PS3 and XBOX versions first.

    If we are lucky, the PC version will be released in time for Christmas – because Christmas is the peak of game revenues, and Rockstar can make a decent profit!

    Until a release date is announced by Rockstar themselves, don’t believe any dates you see anywhere. 30th October, 13th December etc are alle false.

  174. Daan says:

    Who cares teddy bears, I have to say that now, after the hype has cooled down, Im realy glad im not sitting here with a ps3 ill never use again but on which i was able to play gta 4.

    tbh, i dont realy care that much about gta 4 that much anymore since ive playd it at friends more that enough.

    Tough luck rockstar, lost another guaranteed customer by putting off the pc release date. Bought all the gta’s in the past (with the exeption of london) but i think ill just download this one, just because i feel a little screwed over beeing a fan from the first hour who never abandonned his pc for a crappy console which is nothing more than a stripped down pc with less options.

  175. Kristaps-K9[Lv] says:

    Isnt rockstar already swimming in money cuz all of their games are with a high rating and GTA vice and liberty city stories havent been released on PC only on PSP

    And theres a GTA chinatow wars coming on nintendo ds this winter——- If GTA IV wont be released before gta cw then Rockstar is FREAKIN CRAZY

  176. Theo says:

    I think pc version will be existed, but no by rockstar. I think microsoft will create something like an emulator but only for GTA IV.

    p.s. Sorry about my english, I’m greek.

  177. Sarn Says says:

  188. Kristaps-K9[Lv] says:

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAA

    GTA IV WILL BE RELEASED ON PC
    just read my newsletter- release date – NOVEMBER 2008 (18.11.08-US 21.11.08-EU)

    ITS A DREAM COME TRUE

    but the system specs arent mentioned

  189. Khalids19 says:

    But by my approximation i think if they optimaise it nicely the minimum specs are goyna be.:1gb of ram for xp/2gb of ram for vista,nvidia 6800gt,cpu intel pentium 4/pentium d,and maybe 10gb of hdd needed and the reccomended specs are around nvidia 8600gt or 7900gtx(which the ps3 uses),Intel core 2 duo,2gb of ram of windows xp

  206. From Portugal With Love says:

    Finally, they said it wouldn’t come out… hahahahaha yeah right…
    I knew the pc version was just a few months away.. I’m pretty sure my computer will play the game. I hope so…

  207. zenno says:

    i’m a pc gamer a long time now and i bought an xbox 360 to play gta4. got through a few levels of it and wasn’t impressed with the graphics too much. no antialiasing at all and the slowdowns on the 360 are “crap” annoying. i noticed this slowdown problem alot with other games as well so i decided to sell the xbox 360 and got what i payed for it all back no loss. so will just wait till november to play it with better speed and graphics.

  208. Enger says:

    Ok, seriously people, i here all this stuff, like “it shouldnt take that long” and “the codes similar”,

    A “standard” pc obviously uses an AMD, or an Intel CPU, wich i think use the risc instruction set,

    The 360, uses an ibm cpu, just like the slightly older mac’s, wich use the cisc architecture,

    The point is, the code from one is incompatible with the other, and it takes lots of engineers to translate and recompile the code.

    So that’s why, if they where to do that, would take a while, plus if the 360 wast to be emulate, it would probably only work on a G5 mac, which where the first machines used to demo the 360 games.

  209. mop45star says:

    do you guys even know how much i want this game

    hell i even tried to run the xbox 360 emualitor and it did not work

    and quite frankly i dont care on wich windows it comes cuz i have both of theme

    my system :
    runing on micro soft windows vista ultimate sp1 and micro soft windows xp pro sp2
    i have an intel core 2 due @ 2.20 ghz cache size 2 mb
    2gb ddr2 ram
    nividia gt 8500 512
    so if any1 knows if it should run on my system please tell me

    R* are take so much time 2 release the title gta4.
    they are giving priority 2 console users first which doest not show any respect 2 the pc users.
    R* should release their products 2 all platforms so every one can enjoy.
    According 2 R* there were many date fixed for releasing this title but always postporned.
    I pray that the final date given by R* doest change.

  237. madan says:

    exactlypls tell me when the gta 4 release

  238. jim halpert says:

    Listen guys, I work directly as a java Decoder for a third party corporate which works for Rock star games under a six month contract….Recently , My contract was Finished so I can fearlessly announce the Launch date …..its schedule for a Feb 2009 release….
    I am not much of a GTA fan ..But looking at this craziness I decided to shell it out…

  239. Geezer says:

    Do you also know what the release date from GTA IV will be in the Netherlands?

    Thanks

  240. albro says:

    so will it be released on december 18 or december 2nd? or 12th? or what?? so confused…and whens it available for download?

  241. bob says:

    how much giga bites do u people think it will take up?

  242. CMG says:

    OK…

    1. Check if your computer can run the game
    http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest
    THERE.

    2. You’re all forgetting that big companies like Micro*** and Rockstar are businesses and do not care about respect for PC gamers, even if we are the majority of the gaming community. They’re in it for the money, not your approval.

    3. ‘Jim Halpert’ you can make up as many stories as you want but I don’t trust anyone who uses a fake name on posts – especially names from TV. It would be stupidity to release the game AFTER Christmas. It _will_ be released in December.

    Thanks for reading.

    GTA IV PC reeks of EPIC FAIL.

    GTA SA PC+ MODS >>>>>> GTA IV.

    Worst.”Port”.Ever.

  257. Reading some of your posts made me just want to say that YES GTA 4 is coming to the PC and according to BestBuy they are now backordered for 1-2 weeks, I placed my order but I doubt it will arrive before Xmas. I also ordered a wireless PS3 controller so I can install needed drivers and place the needed mods to use a PS3 controller on the PC for easier gameplay, I do hate using the keyboard when playing games on the PC. I may have doubts about graphics and internet gameplay. The graphics may not be the greatest but it depends on your Graphics Card, I have a 8500GT 512MB may need to upgrade to an HD or something but we will see.

    Well Get a Better System Dude 8500GT isn’t gaming card 8800GT/s/x/ultra and 9800GT/x/x+/280 are gaming cards. Plus a nice system spec too.

    Tho my PC release is not running at all on my system (i can’t beleave they would bring a game thats Dual Core only) p4-3.9ghz/4GB-ram/8800GTX.
