Put on your tin foil hats guys, it’s time for a good old conspiracy theory. Answer this question though: why isn’t GTA V on the PC yet? According to one guy at Intel, it’s because some serious money changed hands to make sure it remained a console exclusive; for now at least.
This theory was put forward by Director of Marketing for Intel’s Premium Notebooks, Chris R Silva, who said in an interview with PCGamer, that when you have two companies like Microsoft and Sony sitting on massive cash stockpiles and wanting very much to keep their ailing hardware at the forefront until the new-generation can be released, it’s possible that some back handed deals went down to keep GTA off the PC for now.
“Somebody paid a lot of money to make sure that title was exclusive,” he suggested.
However, even if this did happen, he doesn’t think it will be long before GTA V hits the PC. Despite decreased sales in desktops, the sale of individual hardware components remains high and games similarly are making a killing on the PC at the moment. If Rockstar wants to make a lot more money from its latest game – and we know it does – then it would be ridiculous not to think a PC release isn’t just around the corner.
KitGuru Says: I’m not one for conspiracies usually, but there could be a shred of truth in this one. What do you guys think?
