PC Version of GTA V Appears on Amazon in Europe

Back in October, we heard that GTA V would come to PC in early 2014. At the time, it seemed like an age to wait. Yet, here we are.

Initial reports said we'd see GTA V for PC sometime in Q1. Now, the game has appeared on Amazon, seemingly confirming that a release is not far off. TechRadar reports that both Amazon Germany and Amazon France had the listing online, but Amazon France has apparently already pulled the offending listing. 

 

No word on an official launch date, but pricing for the PC version in Europe is set at €59.99, about €15 more than what the PS3 and XBox 360 version currently go for (though those have been out for several months, so that makes sense).

Rockstar is keeping quiet about the PC release of GTA V. In fact, the company hasn't even said if there will be one. GTA 5 hit consoles in mid-September, and Rockstar enjoyed a rocky launch with GTA Online a couple of weeks later. The silver lining for PC gamers is that console users will have suffered through the majority of GTA Online issues before the game hits desktops. At least, that's the hope.

    Well I'll be getting it. Loved the GTA games, and frankly the PC is the only platform I want to play them on.

    With so many excellent GTA-style games already available on PC, with the complete disregard Rockstar has shown us so far, with Rockstar's history of shoddy PC ports, I have zero interest in GTA V on PC at this point. There's just too much competition that treats us better and looks more interesting, both on the market now and coming in the future.
    The guys who ported Max Payne 3 to PC are in charge of this port as well, and from what I've heard, the Max Payne 3 port was quite good. Rockstar hasn't officially announced GTA V for PC yet because of obligations to the console makers; there might be a certain date they need to reach before they can say anything. I loved GTA 4 and its community who are still releasing mods for the game today, and even if it was a mess at launch on PC, the patches have fixed the majority of issues. I think with the new people in charge, there shouldn't be large problems when GTA V launches on PC.

    I won't be getting it. GTAIV was a big let down, and from what I've seen, GTAV, while definitely better, still very much follows GTAIV's trend of driving around a lot without any real excitement in missions...GTA SA is still, for me, the best GTA experience around.
