So, people who got the ultimate edition on consoles, was it worth it the extra money over the special? I figure if I buy it I might as well get it from Rockstar and the special edition is default anyway.

No ray-tracing it seems :(
They weren't going to put resources into implementing ray tracing for a potentially small percentage of people who'll be able to take advantage of it.

You can say that for every game. The reason to work with ray tracing now is because every game will be ray traced in the near future. Developers who have already used this tech will be at a skillset advantage compared to developers who don't. That said, yes there's also a bunch of reasons why they didn't, but there's also plenty of financial related reasons why they should.

I guess I’m double dipping since online is great now. Mouse controls might make the singleplayer bearable too.

I already bought the Ultimate Edition on console but all the bonuses it gives are just online boosts I’ve already used or online unlocks which I would (presumably) have access to already if you can transfer characters from console so I don’t really see a point in paying for it again? Even if transfers aren’t a thing I’m not sure anything in it was really worthwhile, especially with how easy it is to get XP after the latest update

Got up to about midway through chapter 4 before life took over and ended up selling PS4.

Cannot wait to be able to play through and finish it on PC!

Did anyone in the media ask Rockstar if their launcher supports preloading?

This is incredibly short-sighted. If GTAV is any indication, the game is going to be around for a long, long time.

No regional pricing? Fuck off Rockstar with your shitty launcher. I'd rather have it on Steam anyways.

Can someone post screenshots from Pro or One X versions closest to the new PC screenshots?

For anybody who was worried (like myself), R* Launcher downloads launch just fine in BPM on Steam and work fine with remote play.

I'm gonna get RDR2 at Rockstar, as I already own GTAV on it.

What's the price for Australia? I'm scared to look.
$90 for the Special Edition which has a few extra missions and cosmetics. It's not cheap at all (I paid $69 for the Xbox version day one physical) but to be honest I was expecting $100 for the standard edition (which doesn't seem to exist on PC). Also getting 2 games for free softens it a little.

Is LA Noire the remastered edition?

Wish they had an option to only install the single player and save some disk space. I keep having to move all my games to my mechanical hard drive to get more space on my 1 Tb SSD.

I feel the opposite. I've finished the main campaign, and online is the main reason why I'm interested in playing this on PC. However, I don't really think they can separate them, as both modes are set on the same map.

For those who've installed the launcher, how's the friends list work? Importing or anything from your Steam friends list?

Anyone have an idea if you can refuse preorder bonuses for the Campaign/Story mode if you preorder on the Rockstar Launcher? While playing the story I don’t want extra money or free weapons or any help like that .

Japanese regional pricing is ridiulous. ¥ 8,618 for the cheapest version. That's about $US80, $AUD120, or £ 65.

I don’t know if my 1070 will survive at 1440p

if I could squeeze out 60 FPS, I’ll double dip. If not I’ll stick with XboneX

I'm contemplating getting an RTX card to make sure I get the best experience with this and Cyberpunk. But I know something new is right around the corner.
Don't make that mistake. Current RTX was way too premature and won't be able to hold up in future games without relying on the poor IQ you get from DLSS. New Nvidia cards in 2020 are a given.. I'm waiting until Nvidia or AMD releases cards that can handle ray tracing at 1440p 144 Hz, I just hope it isn't too long lol.

Anyone actually able to purchase this yet? I get an error message every time.

Let me give you my money, Rockstar!

Everyone I've asked on some of the Discords I hang out on say they'll probably wait for STEAM release.

Not sure if all of them really will but we'll see.
The only good reason to wait for Steam is regional pricing, if applicable. The Steam version will force the use of the Rockstar launcher anyway, so... Hard to argue with the better version offer and pre-order benefits.

I wonder if the copy of Max Payne 3 on the launcher actually fucking works, because it's sure as shit basically a brick when it comes to the Steam version.

Last night I spent hour and a half with R* support trying to make Store available in my country and nothing. I tried everything support told me to do and in the end only VPN worked. That means that either my IP was blocked (I doubt because I couldn't access Warehouse web page from 3 networks and 2 devices) or my country is simply blocked.

One way or another I can't even buy game from their own store XD But I guess that their team is now informed so maybe they will unblock my country soon XD

Not great but could be worse. I wonder if pricing on the other storefronts will be any different.

Got the R* launcher installed and am logged in, but the store doesn't seem to be up yet for me. Clicking on the pre-purchase link just goes to the R* loading logo and then I get a "Store is currently unavailable" error.
