I'm pretty excited for it. Rockstar is one of the few developers I would stand up and say "Hey, these guys have a good record for making quality, enjoyable, games and I will back them and say that I trust them to make a good game". I never played Uncharted, and only like an hour of Red Dead Redemption (I do wanna play it though), but GTA:SA was one of my most played games ever, easily having put hundreds if not up to a couple thousands, of hours into it as a kid (GTA:SA and SW:BF2 were mostly what I played for a year or so). GTA:IV was fun and all but felt lackluster in its features compared to GTA:SA, at least to me. This one seems really good though!
Honestly, I didn't throw money at my PC to use it as a paperweight or word processor. I only own consoles for "exclusive" games.

They are really cheap right now.
Also, many games are able to release a proper PC version simultaneously with a console version. Recent examples: Max Payne 3 (2 weeks isn't a huge gap), Dead Space 1 & 2, Saint's Row 3 (not 2...blurgh that one is on the other end), L4D 1 & 2, just off the top of my head. Notable failure recently is Mass Effect 3. The whole damn PC game played so poorly and felt so much like a port...yurgh.
Can't wait, GIVE IT ME NOW. Thing about GTA is everyone has been awesome, not like the CoD series where there's been let downs, that's why I'm so excited for it, really can't wait. Going to smack everyone if they take ages to release it on PC.
While it was a bad port on the PC, it wasn't 100% avoidable. It was a very early port technology wise, the development team were kinda new to 3D games (it may have even been their first 3D game) so they had to tackle new problems when porting. This is proven just 1 year later due to Vice City being a very good port and they had clearly discovered mistakes they made in the game before.
They know how important the ports are for the game and the franchise which is why every other port since has been very good quality and any problems have been fixed shortly after.
My argument was that developers now rarely even put time into making a port to PC, and push it out very quickly and ignore a lot of problems that are left due to the port.

I would love to see CJ make cameo in this one
The same goes for every developer. Of course, they'll make more money the quicker they do release a PC version, but that's their choice to make.
As for the game - it better hurry the damn up!
