PC Grand Theft Auto IV Features SecuROM DRM

Warlock7 maybe it's the consoles... (531 comments)

could it be that they don't want anybody to buy it on the PC and drive up the console sales instead? Might be in the MS contract...

Some are calling this bribery while Microsoft is saying that they gave them the machines with "...no expectation of any editorial payback.". Complete details are covered in the MacWorld article."

Warlock7 (531656) writes "Well, it's official. The pre-orders have begun. There's some mention of it on a couple sites out there. I just got mine ordered and four hours later there are already units on eBay. Prior to this post, there were already some for over $1000 USD.

The guys at EBGames told me that the most units going to any one store was 36 and that there were an average of 8 units being distributed to each store. The one I went to reported that they were going to be getting a total of 16 units. They waited this long to take pre-orders because they wanted to be sure that they weren't going to get burned like they did for the XBox 360 launch."
