There has been a petition to change this and it's gaining momentum. The open letter states:
Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.
Please release GTA V on PC. GTA games have been a large part of so many people's lives and it's a big shame not seeing the newest iteration of the game being released on the most powerful platform. Things like modifications have always been a HUGE part of PC gaming and modded GTA is some of the most insanely fun times you can have.
I hope you consider the release of GTA V on PC as it'll make...

Over a year ago I was banned from Mass Effect 3 Online Multiplayer. I've been accused of editing ini settings to exploit credits. I have spent some £100 and countless hours on online packs to get better multiplayer equipment etc.
EA will not answer my emails & bioware flat out refuse to talk to me.
Although I'm quite technical I have no idea where to begin to edit these settings to achieve the credit exploit I was accused of. It was suggested to me that I may have been connected to a hacked server that was giving too much credits etc. To be fair I don't care, I want my money back.
I recently contact their customer support again, my case was closed within 4 minutes of opening without any explanations?!
This is what bioware wrote to me at the time (May 2012):
We have proven that you have exploited Mass Effect 3 multiplayer through editing your INI settings. We take cheating very seriously and we have decided to ban your account from multiplayer. This ban will not be reverted under any circumstance.
No further explanations offered. No proof for that matter either.
Normally I'd just never buy from this brand again but I don;t want to be one of the many people that took it laying down instead of doing something about it.
My question is this, even if we assume I have been cheating (which is ridiculous because I paid £100 not including the cost of the game itself of money for online packs) does EA have legal grounds to ban me & if so do they have legal grounds to deny me a refund?
What can I legally do to recover the very real money I have spent? What does the Slashdot readership suggest I do about this?"
