I don't think any GTA's on the PC had quicksave. They all had you return to your "home" to save your progress.

No. Xbox CPU is less powerfull than quad cores. The main thing is that Rockstar never optimised game well.

Have you seen a review with its CPU scaling?

The thing is that with the X360 it had predetermined settings that will not cause issues. See im sure you everyone lowered the settings to the games recommended rather then putting their own desired settings the game would run smooth for them.

J-Mag, Yes the games performance increases with faster CPU because Euphoria is not being dragged behind. Im guessing about 75% of the CPUs time is done processing Euphoria.

Wow, this just sounds like a complete disaster. Glad I didn't buy it yet. I wonder if this game will ever get worked out . . . I'd really like to play and finish this game on the PC.

All thise social and LIVE crap during the installation... register here and register there... They should have put all that effort into optimizing the game instead of all that social ****.
I dout its a shoddy port, more like they underestimated the flexibility of their engine. Im sure they tried their hardest but you have to remember they originally designed the game around console architecture (the same can be said about their previous GTA Titles).
