Well I bought Max Payne 3 and if they do a GTA V port to the PC with the same quality, it looks very promising in terms of performance and graphical options.

Not only does it support DirectX 9 & 11 as previously known, but it also supports 10 and 10.1.  I'm able to play with almost all Very High settings, High Shadows(Not enough VRAM according to game for Very High), Very High FXAA and 16x AF on DirectX 10 mode at 1680x1050 with my GTX 260 216-core, 4GB of RAM on 32-bit and a Q9550 and I actually have to keep Vsync on or the game tears like crazy.

I don't know how the game was working for PC initially but based on everything I'm seeing it seems like it's actually very very optimized for the PC, this is one of the better ports I've seen in a while.  From a stability standpoint, I have an occasional 4-second pause in the middle of some gun battles(happened two or three times since yesterday) and the game crashed earlier today, plus you have set the aspect ratio as a launch command until they patch it into the in-game graphics settings but no other problems to speak of other than that, and for a game that was released just over 10 days ago and only 16 days after its console version, I think it's working very well.  GTA V should be amazing for PC if MP3 is anything to go by.

Here's hoping whichever studio did this port does that one as well.

MP3 was done by Rockstar Vancouver, and they seemed to do a good job. As long as Rockstar Toronto doesn't do the GTA V port, we might be okay.

I really hope Rockstar North develops a PC version alongside the console versions...

Somehow I doubt they have Vancouver working on GTA V, that would mean they had them working on two games and I read reports that the company was already stretched thin on work hours just doing MP3.  Likely (and unfortunately) they have Toronto on it again because they've already done a GTA before and that was probably reason enough for North, even though EVERYBODY who's played GTA IV for PC recognizes what a lazy, sloppy half-assed job they took their time doing for it

Rumor has it that Rockstar San Diego is working on GTA V but that's likely only for the console versions since according to the games they've done in this wiki article, they have virtually no recent PC experience under their belt, having only made the Midnight Club and Red Dead series under their Rockstar label.

It was made more than 10 years ago though, computer hardware is a lot different now from what it was in 2000.  Plus I think they would've made a PC port of RDR at least if they had any interest at all in doing a PC port of anything.  Going by that list alone and the fact that Vancouver just finished a PC port and is still currently doing patchwork on it and porting whatever DLC for the summer, it's looking like it's either gonna be Rockstar Toronto again or maybe Rockstar Leeds who did the PC port of L.A. Noire.

Yeah, I never understood why they didn't do a PC port of RDR - that game would of sold like hot cakes on Steam, in stores, etc.  I'm actually surprised they did LA Noire - as when I tried to play it, the game is locked at 30 FPS (due to the facial animations, I think), and it doesn't support 16:10 resolutions without the picture looking stretched or squished.  The visuals were nice, but the controls were awful - I'll have to try it on console.

im sorry that a massive sandbox game where you can beat people to death with dildos, steal jetpacks from area 51 and drive around icecream vans dealing drugs doesn't have the true-to-life driving experience you apparently require.
