Take 2 announced through their email newsletter that GTA IV will indeed be released on the PC. No release date is currently set. Here is a quote from Sam Houser:
"We are very excited to be releasing the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "The whole team is dedicated to bringing an amazing gaming experience to the PC. The game looks and plays beautifully on PC and we can't wait for people to play it."

The only new "feature" we know of right now is that the PC version will have expanded multiplayer, which is pretty exciting in my opinion. Stay tuned to The GTA Place for the latest GTA IV news!

WOOT!

Okay, I'm upgrading my PC faster.

Same, it'll be a bastard for memory and RAM lol. My RAM already sucks

In the same position. I always complain on how my computer sucks and no one will do a darn thing about it.

I probably won't be buying a PC version however, if I get a new computer (All my games run on the laptop) I may get it but I'm not sure right now. All my computers/laptops are too crap to run this game probably.

If the controlls are difficult, I don't recommend you to play in a laptop.

I just attached a new keyboard onto the Lappy, controls are no problem for me and besides Laptop keyboards are usually smaller than the normal ones that you buy at shops. I am used to smaller keyboards with small keys.

Just buy an adapter for your old PS2 controller. PS2 controllers are the best for playing GTA games on the PC. Been using it to play them since GTA3 :)

PC parts manufacturers are gonna love this news though. Think of all the people who must be upgrading their computers now. Everyone wanting Vista and a new graphics card so they can see the benefits of DX10. Everyone getting more RAM.

Glad I upgraded last year, will almost certainly pay off. 2.4GHz Core2Duo, 4GB RAM, 8800GTS 320MB, I can't wait for this. Will be pre-ordering as soon as it's available online somewhere :awesome:

I'd double the amount of RAM there if you can afford it. Just to be sure. 2GB isn't that much these days, it's enough, but you know, this is GTAIV.

Might steal a gig of RAM from my current PC so it makes 3GB... lol

Man, this is gunna be so awesome! I actually can't wait. Only problem is with this year, I'm studying loads for my GCSE's and even if I get it, I won't have the time to play it due to studies.
