So… uh… this might happen. Apparently, there was a Google Cache posting of a Rockstar Games support page which claimed several new features for Grand Theft Auto V on the PC.
A brand new first person mode for vehicles that shows the interior of the vehicle, including working speedometers, tachometers, dash lights, and more

The most weird part is that it was listed in a part of the page, unfortunately deleted from Google Cache, that seemed to list PC-exclusive features. That is, not exclusive to the re-release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC — just exclusive to the PC. This is, of course, going by memory. I could have misread it the first time, before it was deleted.
Also, since no-one seems to have seen the page outside of Google Cache, it could have (somehow) been a faked injection. I can confirm that it existed on Google Cache from a Rockstar-owned URL, though. I've never heard of that happening before, but PC Gamer seems to have heard of it.
Hey, if that list was the reason for the delay, I'll take it, Rockstar. I don't approve of the other platforms getting an inferior experience without a technical reason, being a PC gamer for so long makes me empathetic, but maybe it will come to them. Often PC versions were cut down and delayed out of fear of development costs and piracy. Maybe, in this case, they took that time to make a better product. That would be novel.
Grand Theft Auto V for the PC is coming on January 27th,
Goddamit Scott!…January 2015

Hah. You should have seen the original Final Fantasy news post. The second paragraph wasn't even complete when I published it. Today is difficult for some reason. Fixed.

I’ll believe it when I see it rockstar doesn’t have a good history when to comes to pc.

You can play every all the GTA games (since GTA3) in first person mode using mods. Even if Rockstar doesn’t do it out of the box, you’ll still have the option by using mods.

I was referring to the quality of port we have gotten from them in the past and the complete lack of a port for red dead redemption. They have made it amply clear in the past that the pc is a second class citizen in there eyes.

Hyperbole much? GTA IV was a poor performer if you tried to play it on max settings without a higher-end system, but other than that it ran OK and looked better than consoles in every way. My Q6600/GTX470 didn’t struggle to play 1080p. I think people just had unrealistic expectations that they could run GTA IV as well as GTA3 without issues.
GTA3, VC, SA and the followup DLC for GTA IV were all fine. There are plenty of other studios that haven’t released ANY console games on PC, so I don’t think it’s fair to call shenanigans on Rockstar because they didn’t bring ONE game over to PC. You must be an all-or-nothing sort of person.
