More evidence of GTA V coming to PC

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 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 😀

          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.

            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

            January 20, 2014 at 15:16

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