Me too... The game looks great in PS2. It must be better on PC.

I'd like to see the PC version just to compare it to my PS2 version. :)

Yeah this game has just gotta be released for the PC soon. A Pentium 4 is more powerful that a PS2, so I'm quite eager to play it. :)

Well, technically a P4 would be more powerful than a PS2, but the role of a PC isn't soley gameplay as the PS2 is. Game consoles are designed from the ground up (usually) to play games, and play them well. The Piddly N64 CPU (93.75 MHz) can take on a hefty Chipzilla (Intel) CPU and a beefy GPU. The Playstation2 is quite a bit more advanced than the N64, so the comparable specs would be much higher for the PC end. But realistically speaking, the GTA3 developers said the game runs better on a high end PC (say 1.4GHZ+ & a geforce3 or 4), so obviously PS2 has met it's match. It's too bad that emulation requires a much more powerful CPU. =(

Quite correct. But the official minimum specs are 450MHz P2 and a 16Mb videocard with 64Mb Ram, as PC games are customizable (graphics and details can lowered, improved unlike consoles.)
But the company sadi that to enjoy the true beauty of this game with full detail, u should've a P3 700MHz with 128Mb Ram and 32Mb VIDcard.

Indeed that is what they said, but I prefer games with 4x anti aliasing, 32bit color, 1024x768+ resolutions and basically the rest of the features cranked. I don't think a p3 700 with a "generic" 32mb video card would be able to handle that at 120+ fps (vsynced of course. I can't stand the tearing of non-vsynced 3d applications). Ohwell, I've never played GTA3 so this is the furthest I can tread on this turf.
