Just at this moment an Amazon employee responsible for product listings is probably being dragged out behind the bike shed with a bag over his/her head, ready for the inevitable. Their line manager received an email earlier from the developer of console exclusive game Grand Theft Auto V, with the words “You don’t mess with the R*. You know what to do.”
The messing in question is the listing of a PC version of GTA V on both the French and German site branches of Amazon. Since there has been no official word on GTAV for PC yet, we can only assume this was a ‘bit of a slip up’.
The French link has since been removed, but the German link continues to work. We can only assume that once the employee involved has been ‘taken care of’, that link will be purged too.
Of course, listings on Amazon are hardly definitive proof of games jumping to the master platform, but combined with this leak here, and the fact that every GTA in the numbered series has made it to the PC eventually, it seems like the ultimate version of one of 2013’s most polished games is on its way. You watch, these Amazon workers will one day be held up on Wikileaks as heroes who did their best to reveal Rockstar’s secrets to the deserving public.
