    Now all we need is the price to come down. I don't buy new games right away anymore. I'm not going to shell out $60 for a game, even if I do have the money for it.

    I've bought a handful of games at actual full retail price new. Warlords of Draenor and GTA V (360 and I preordered already for PC) are all can think of right now. I would have paid 60 bucks for Skyrim but I got it for Christmas.

    I even bought my Xbox 360 specifically for GTA V, and that wasn't exactly cheap. I'm keeping the Xbox for Forza 4 though since I can't find a decent competitor on PC.

    I guess we'll get to see first hand if being on the same x86 arch increases the ease of quality PC ports ;)

    Well it was originally on the 360 and PS3, which weren't x86 as far as I can tell. Also they probably had more pressure from a financial perspective to push the console release first.

    I'm hoping for mod support through Steam Workshop. I also wonder if it will have any other DRM besides Steam. Social Club will be there for sure.

    I got Skyrim during the 2013 Holiday sale for CHEAP.. Not sure about the exact amount (under $15).. Then I got the DLC's.... For free......... :D
    Anyways, there always seems to be deals a couple months after release.. I'm also going to wait just incase there's an issue..

    And steam always has crazy sales, as well places like Kingpin or G2A, though now I'm not so sure I would buy from there anymore

    C4C, I got Skyrim the Christmas after it came out so it was still full price then. Skyrim is one of the games I've seen retain its monetary value the longest. It was hard to find it under 40 for well over a year after it came out.

    Yeah I'm still three days into a fake key issue with G2A. The seller said they issued me a refund but I haven't gotten diddly. G2A is being helpful but the seller is not.

    Might not be the greatest. It's a pretty CPU intensive game.

    Yeah no kidding.. I was freaking out looking at those recommended specs.. Probably due to the open world aspect, graphically it's not that intensive though.

    By the System Requirements...? A quad core FM2+ chip would not meet the recommended, even though his 280X exceeds them.

    I'm hesitant to hope for maxing it out. I meet recommended in both but expect to be crippled by my AMD architecture on the CPU side.

    True thing.. I'm already looking at going Intel within the next year. My little brother has gotten into PC Gaming using my laptop (i7 + GT 540M) and I wanna build him a dedicated machine. He'll probably take my 860K.

    As far as playing GTA IV goes, it runs smoothly maxed out disregarding the occasional stutter for world rendering... I probably won't buy GTA V as a preorder. I just don't have the $$$ right now. :(

    I'm pretty stoked about PC release. Excited to see where the modding community will take it.

    I'm just ready to AA the hell out of this game. :p Even on current gen consoles it still looks pretty jaggy in some place. I can't even look at the 360 version after getting used to my roommate's PS4.

    I just recently blew the dust off my 360 version to play some new heists. I agree, after going from my relatively newly built gaming PC back to 360, it indeed hurts the eyes. Incredible though that rockstar was able to get the game to run as it does on such outdated hardware.

    Yeah that's exactly how I feel. It looks pretty mediocre for a 2012/2013 title but man does it look amazing for hardware from 2005ish and less than a GB of RAM in the whole system.

    I gave up on waiting for the PC version. The PS4 version keeps me occupied enough and I dont even feel like keeping up with the new release dates for PC anymore.

    If there is one trend Rockstar needs to kill off, its their absolutely horrible concept of time. They havent released a single game when they said they would in the past decade. And its not like they are a small studio with tons of projects, they are alot of studios with a few projects.

    Possibly my favorite game developer ever and they are just consistently losing my faith in everything they say. I still have my GTAV poster that says "coming spring 2013" yet it got released in fall. Like, they didnt even give out a date that time they just said spring. And spring came and went and they still said it would be spring of 2013. Someone in one of those studios needs to buy a calendar.

    God it's almost like they want to ship a complete and finished game.
