November 18, those who have jumped to the current generation will be able to enjoy the newly polished GTAV. The PC master race must wait until January 27 of next year.

In addition to making the game way shinier, Rockstar is adding a few new things:

- New weapons, vehicles and activities
- Additional wildlife
- Denser traffic
- New foliage system
- Enhanced damage and weather effects, and much more
- Over 100 new songs. Perhaps El Sondito will play less often. That beeping. OMG.

For the full story and a look at some very pretty screenshots, see the official announcement:

And yet, still no heists. Sigh....

Would now be a good time to remind everyone we have an official CheerfulGhost GTA V crew? :P

Wow, I don't think I've ever heard El Sondito before. That got annoying REAL fast. Then again, I was fairly unimpressed with the radio stations in GTA this time around, and turned the music volume down all the way pretty early on. I usually play on-line and I'm talking to people on Skype and the music usually just gets in the way.

Awesome! I remember this time last year waiting ever so impatiently for GTAV to come out. That sucks that it won't be on PC until January, but I guess I can wait.

Thanks for the reminder and link, Tim. I have hopefully successfully accepted the crew invite. I haven't played the game in a long time.

Ok, I watched a video comparing the PS3 version to the PS4 version and it looks a lot better. I thought the game looked great on the PS3, but the PS4 version looks even better and I'm glad the video pointed out the differences. Sadly, however, I'm unable to find a comparison between the PS3 (or older console versions) and the PC version. Hopefully, in due time one will be released. It'd also be nice to see how the PC version compares to the new console versions.

What do you guys think? Are you going to get the PC or new console versions? If you don't already have a new console (I don't) are you going to get one for GTA V? I'm thinking I might get the PC version. I still see no need (for me) to get a newer console, although this game could be a good reason to get one. What are your thoughts?

The PC version is coming much later, and it is significantly dependent on what kind of hardware you have. I'd say that (without modding) the PS4 version is probably about what the PC version will look like.

Yeah, it's supposed to be coming out in January, I think Yes, I agree that it would depend on the hardware. I've shared my new specs. and I'm sure it would look great on my new PC. I think I can also agree that the PC version would be similar to the PS4 (or XBox One even).

Are you going to get the new version?

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 10/04/2014 at 04:14pm

Yes, but not for a while I imagine. I don't want to play through it again but when I decide to (which I'm sure I will) I'll get the new version.

For PC?

Travis   Admin   Post Author wrote on 10/05/2014 at 05:29am

For whatever platform I prefer the next time I want to play it :)

Azurephile   Super Member wrote on 10/05/2014 at 06:43am

Hahaha. Do you have a PS4 or XBox One or want either? I'm interested in the PS4, but don't want to get one yet. While I'm not aware of many games for it, I don't know of any games I want for it, so I guess I'm waiting for something to come out for it that I'll want (like a new Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts). Although getting one for GTA V doesn't seem like a bad idea either. As for the XBox, I'm not at all interested.

I'm not interested in either console right now. If I was pressed to buy a next gen console i'd buy a Wii U. That said, I am still holding out for a reasonably powered Steam Machine. The Alienware Alpha looks interesting but I want to wait a bit until SteamOS is released.

Azurephile   Super Member wrote on 10/06/2014 at 06:18pm

Cool. I bet the Alienware one will be awesome, seeing as how awesome my Alienware PC is. =)

jdodson   Admin wrote on 10/06/2014 at 06:38pm

That's the brand of Steam Machine i'd prefer to buy. I might skip the alpha and go to the one with SteamOS on it. Been considering putting together a low cost PC for under the TV too. Not sure which approach is best but i'll doing something next year for a Steam console for sure. So many great options good thing I have time to think about it smile
