Grand Theft Auto V’s X360 Configuration File Hints At A PC Version

Grand Theft Auto V v2

GTA V releases on Tuesday, however the game’s X360 version has already been leaked. Naturally, this means that the Internet has been flooded with a lot of videos from that version, as well as stories full of spoilers. Ironically, some console fans launched a petition in order to prevent GTA V from releasing on the PC due to PC gamers being pirates. Funny thing is that if Rockstar decides to use Steamworks on the PC version of it, the game will not get leaked or be playable prior to its official release date. I guess we can all agree that there are pirates on all fronts, be it PC or consoles, so there is nothing new to add to this.

What’s interesting about the X360 version, though, is that its configuration file hints towards a next-gen console and a PC version. We already knew that GTA V would be coming on our platform and that it’s just a matter of time, but this configuration file is more than enough to convince everyone that Rockstar has not abandoned its PC crowd.

Spotted by CinemaBlend, this configuration file contains specifications for the Xbox 360, PC, PS3 and PlayStation 4.

In case you’re wondering, this is nothing new. If you’ve ever browsed most the .ini files of most multi-platforms titles, you would have seen other platforms being listed in them. This can be easily spotted in games powered by Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 (Borderlands and Unreal Tournament 3 for example).

Suffice to say that this did not surprise us at all. So there you have it everyone. It’s almost certain that GTA V will be coming on the PC. Question is: will you wait until then or will you get it on current-gen consoles?
