    It's a lawsuit waiting to happen...

    I vaguely remember reading something about a lawsuit for theft in EVE.

    The poor PC version of GTA4 (excluding steam) has sold something like 800k from total sales of 25m.

    GTA5 sold 2.2m in the UK alone. Nearly 15m worldwide already.

    I can understand that T2 might want to make some money on consoles before everyone pirates GTA5 on PC.

    Where did you get those PC sales from? Take Two don't release them as far as I can see, so they're all guesses that I can see online. Steam also don't release their sales figures normally.

    Xbox 360 News: Grand Theft Auto Online won't unlock until 2nd October in Australia - Xbox 360 - The Official Magazine

    The 1st October release date adheres to American time zones, Rockstar says, which means Australians won't get access until 2nd October.

    FTFY.

    I also have to take umbrage at the casual assertion that as soon as it is released on PC, everyone will be pirating it. cf: sales of the Witcher 2, released on Day 1 completely DRM free through gog.com. Some piracy, certainly, but also enormously popular and a megaseller.

    It's great what the gog do and a shame more publishers do not take this path. In contrast you have have Ubisoft saying their PC games are 95% pirated. Ubisoft: PC Piracy Levels 95%, and 95% of Free-To-Play Users Do Not Pay | TorrentFreak

    The PC does suffer from piracy (amount debatable) but it cannot be ignored and the higher price for console games will guarantee a certain level of income (how many PC games sales are in online sales when they are under 50% off).

    All I said was that I can see why they'd want money in the bank before releasing on PC.

    What makes you think consoles don't suffer piracy? It may not be as widespread (it is undeniable it's easier to pirate on the PC) but at the end of the day, pirates gonna pirate.

    Also, online sales with massive reductions in price - well, yeah, it's almost 100% profit! The game is already made, it's sat on the distributor's server, there's no physical media so every download is almost entirely profit.

    There'd be a hell of a lot less piracy if publishers were less greedy, I noticed the other day that RRP on new games is 54.99 now! If a new game cost 20, I think a lot less people would pirate.

    That was always going to happen and even if they had enough servers there is still going to be bugs and stuff which the internal testing has not caught.
    Leave it a week or two before trying if you want a fairly bug free experience.

    As for EVE Online if you fly around with a hold full of PLEX (the only item in the game you buy with real money) in Lowsec, your just asking for trouble.
