My sig was Kmanx telling me he will give me 30 bucks if they don't release the game within 12 months of console release to the PC. My thought is just that, it will take a while to release on PC even if they do at all. I don't expect them too, even though GTA4 sold well on the PC. I find it easier to play GTA without a controller actually.

curious - if this were the case, is the router Trotter linked good or would you need something better/more expensive?

That depends entirely on how many devices you want to use on the wifi at once. By at once, I mean all users simultaneously accessing the internet.

Depending on the internet connection speed, I would say you might need something a bit better.

Well, when you don't have extra crap accessing the internet it tends to run better
