According to Intel, either Sony or Microsoft or some mysterious, weird, PC-hating, third-party has apparently paid Take Two and Rockstar a 'lot of money' to stop GTAV getting onto the PC.
Chris R. Silva, the Director of Marketing for Intelís Premium Notebooks - yup, notebooks - is the man with the quote. He was chatting away at the Intel Developer Forum about the game. He started speculatively enough with:
"At least with Grand Theft Auto I donít think itíll be console exclusive very long. But thatís what happens when you have a brand new launch with two companies that have lots of money trying to make sure they have content.Ē
But then he entered the land of the conspiracy theory when he told PC Gamer
: "Somebody paid a lot of money to make sure that title was exclusive."
Now, it's a good quote but it does come from the guy who sells Intel-based notebooks and would have entailed Sony and Microsoft ganging up.
Unless, of course, that multimillionaire, PC hating weirdo paid...
