Rockstar VP: F--k All This Stuff About Casual Gaming

"Yeah, f**k all this stuff about casual gaming", was the first words Dan Houser, Vice President of Rockstar Games and co-writer of GTA IV said in his interview with New York Entertainment Magazine. "I think people still want games that are groundbreaking".

"The Wii is doing something totally different, which is fantastic. We're hopefully going to prove that there's also a very big audience for people who want entertainment in another form, who think of games as being a narrative device that can challenge movies", Dan Houser continued expressing his opinion about the gaming industry changes since GTA: San Andreas. "We always said: We're not going release a large number of games. They're going to have the production values of movies. They're gonna be about themes that interest us whatever the medium, instead of the weird, special video game-only themes that too many people make - orcs and elves, or monsters, or space. We felt you could make a good game and have it be about something we could actually relate to. Or aspire to".

You guys don't know f**king s**t... PC gaming sucks these days. Only good fo MMORPG's... Yes GTA started on pc, but it certainly was NOT "the best platform". Playstation was where its at, and where its staying. Your s**tty rigs don't have Cell processors... or 3.2ghz XDR memory. So just piss off...you don't deserver a game like GTA IV

Even when they are released brand new, they are obsolite.

3 generations? I beg to differ...I'm a hardcore PC gamer, and I do like the console world, no tweaking, no rig upgrades etc, makes it a simple buck for the kick.Once again I see meganubs posting stuff they have no knowledge about. Kids, trolls, fanboys, etc. Please do some research before spewing s**t from your mouths.

PC's cost more because they offer a richer experience than consoles. Visuals will always rise above consoles no matter what. This is how the hardware industry drives video games.You all need to take a chill pill, GTA4 WILL be on PC in a couple of months, ever since GTA3 it has always been that way. NO different this time around.And amen, f**k casual gaming.

You have to remember, console games are made by PC's. PC's are more powerful BUT consoles games and console accessories have a higher profit margin. It is the reason why they release GTA 4 on consoles first because MS and Sony lose money when each console is sold and as time goes by they make their money, on games and accessories. People just pirate PC games, the only thing all gamers should be worried about is MMORPG's and possibly Spore and Sims 3.

Are you retarded or something? The real money is in consoles because the people who get them are dumb enough to buy the bulls**t accessories (did you know, that after buying 3 controllers, a headset, X-Box live for the 360, a 20GB hard-drive, and 2 good games, you spend $650 to $700! It is exactly $619.94 without any games. Don't believe me, put them together and do the math!) the repetitive games that fail even more by the number (well... Halo 3 was better than 2... but there are so many better games out there) new sports game every year with 2 updates; one on the way it plays, and the other is the teams abilities (grab a f**king ball and do it yourself, it is much better.) Pitiful online capabilities, fees for updates (especially Microsofts MMORPGs, I mean WTF is up with paying for X-Box live, when you still have to buy updates (map expansions) and PAY even more just to play an RPG online? Im specifying mostly on FF11 WOW and PS-O.)
