PC gamers have been loudly crossing their fingers
for a PC outing for Rockstar's forthcoming GTA V. In the past, the series has usually made its way to the desktop platform, though often much later than its console counterparts, leaving many a PC gamer out in the cold. Moreover, given the smash hit Red Dead Redemption has not (and most likely will not) seen the light of day on PC, it's understandable PC peeps would be a tad worried about GTA V.

Make of the slip what you will, but Nvidia does usually work closely with publishers and developers where PC releases are concerned and Rockstar has always been transparent about getting the most out of anything they actually do release on PC, so this sounds pretty good to us.
