San Andreas for example was released in October, and for PC in June next year. Same pattern probably.

Edit: too slow

Too slow? Seems kinda fast to me, but hey, no problem! This game will rock even more on PC (as did all previous GTA's), the only problem I see may be the hardware.
I was also wondering about the exclusive content...could we buy it, so "share" it with others and not buying it at all or just not get it? I bet Xbox users would feel pretty screwed if the content would be free for PC gamers (although I wouldn't mind )!

it's not gonna be free. you can think rockstar love you all you want but they love money. just money.

so if its brought out on pc or ps3 anytime in the future, it'll still be priced.

also, the too slow above, was referring to someone else who posted what he said before him. :)

Yep. There's no way they won't release it for PC. Way too much money to be made here. But about the 'episodic content', I think things will be clearer once the game actually comes out on consoles. I'm thinking you could kinda compare it to the expansions for Oblivion, (like knights of the nine I guess, nothing as big as SI)

Yeah.. Like everyone else said.. It will eventually be ported to the PC.. But not for atleast 6 months.

Rockstar are all about the dollars. Make as much money as they can off the consaoles then ship to PC to make a few more.

Next gen consoles are as powerful as PC's. PC Gaming is now outdated as myself and a friend discussed this for awhile since we were both hardcore PC gamers, now we both play 360. PS3 is the same though, just as powerful. So I can see the PC version either being way too high for specs, thus leading in alot of money to update for PC, to the graphics will be toned down somewhat for the "regular" settings, but still require quite abit of resources for it to run that way. And now since you can get a mouse & keyboard for the 360(not sure about PS3) you can do extremely good in FPS's just as it was on a PC, but hey to each their own, but I just cant see the PC version being all that much more better with the PS3/360 being as powerful, or more than most gaming PCs

i agree next gen consoles are as powerfuls as PCs but eventually they will be outdated..although you have to wait till the next console comes out from the company. where as the PC will be outdated too but there is no waiting, you do the upgrades.

and whats this episodic content i hear of?

Actually this is what I believe.

GTA 4 for PC will require Vista, not only for DX 10 but for the Live options for online play. If you didn't know the Xbox Live service is now on PC. That is what I believe. Good think I have Halo 2 Vista and Shadowrun PC was well as Vista and an 8800GTS. =]

Mm..I don't think GTAIV requires DX10 though and Vista only is unprobable also. And PC has it's own online play, maybe you've heard of it - the regular net.

Erm... you guys are underestimating PC graphics by alot. PC graphics are not outdated, the 8800 was released MONTHS ago. Games like COH, CnC3, R6V... I've got a X1800XT, which is nothing compared to an 8800, and I can run those all fine on highest or close to highest settings. Yes, IV will probably be DX10, as most games by that time, and also by that time, Vista will be much more popular so it won't be as big of an issue. This is over half a year into the future. You never know what's going to happen. ATI will release a card that owns the 8800. Or nVidia will release some 9xxx series card that owns everything before it. GTA on PC will not be toned down, but there will be options to tone down the settings like in all PC games. Even if there is a keyboard and mouse for the 360, PC still has mods, and is much more flexible and unlimited in terms of stuff like storage space. So. The PC version won't suck. But if you can't run something like oblivion smoothly, you're going to need to get a better computer.
