To the delight of PC gamers across the globe, Rockstar games announced yesterday that Grand Theft Auto IV will be coming to PCs this November.
Today, the official GTA IV website has been given a very minor update which could provide some significant details. Where the website had once listed PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as the supported platforms, it has now been added to with Games for Windows Live:
But what exactly does this mean? Well, games branded with the Games for Windows Live logo are synonymous with many of Xbox Live's features. The logo is usually a sign of support for an Xbox Live gamertag, friends list, achievements and, in some cases, cross-platform multiplayer.
Until we hear from Rockstar, it's entirely speculation but promising for those who find Xbox Live to be the best all-round online-gaming network.
It does, however, pose plenty of interesting questions. We know that Microsoft has an exclusive deal to bring episodic content to the Xbox 360, will that same content make its way to the PC? Will the rumoured cross-platform multiplayer belong solely to Xbox 360 and PC gamers?
