    @4 If they decide to release on PC, I am sure they will announce it, but I asked again today anyway. I am sure they are sick of getting mails on the version, but, maybe if bugged enough…. :)

    Rockstar already stated they have no plans on the PC version and yet people continue to ask about it.

    ^ Things change. “Oh no, Goldeneye remake is a Wii exclusive.” ” No no no, GTA IV expansions are 360 only.” “Limbo will never see a release on PS3.” etc, etc.

    Its been 1 year since release. Those examples came months after the original release not years. Even LA Noire is coming out on the PC months after release.

    Just calling it like I see it.

    If anyone has not bought this game yet you now have no excuse not to…its an absolutely amazing game, its probably the best game I’ve ever played besides Fallout 3, no question it had the best ending of any game I’ve played…great deal for a great game with a bunch of great extra content…so go get the GoTY Edition when it comes out

    Hells yeah. Been waiting on the GOTY for this one.

    Only question is……..which console version do I go with….lens of truth here i come!

    I like to think of myself as a realist. Plus if they do come out witha PC version than I can be pleasantly surprised instead of horribly disappointed.

    I truly dislike Rockstar because fact that they treat PC Gamers like shit and blacklisted their Triple A PC development altogether. This game would have been awesome on PC with mod community and Rockstar is arrogant enough to ignore it. That is why I didn’t purchase RDR for my PS3 even though I truly wanted to have it.

    Didn’t every single Rockstar title eventually make it to PC?

    Except RDR yes but they were 5-8 months after release of the console version.

    >>>>Original Red Dead Redemption game with a brand-new hardcore single-player mode.

    Does that mean a new single-player mode, different from the original RDR?

    @14…..understand your frustration……but your loss on the console experience.
