            Steam DRM may restrict you by IP address and may not allow you to play games in other country. Wooop wooop another "awesomness" from "amazing" Steam exclusivity.

              Hmm, so this where all the PC guys hang out....

                As for DRM, R* should make it fair but not too intimidating for legitimate users. Of course the devs spent years refining this, and with multiplayer support a DRM scheme is a must. But like what I've said it shouldn't be too much of a burden for users, like in Gameshield preventing gamers from taking snaps off the game using Fraps.

                And I'm hoping for a better job at porting it to PC, too.

                  looks good ^ , i do not see the horrible blur as in L.A. Noire or AA as in GTA IV, it's rather reassuring, I hope that we can run the game at 60 FPS and it will not be throttled to 30 FPS ??? & an optimization which will be with the height of the R * logo :p

                  my 2500k, 8 GB, GTX 570 wait MP3 (not a digital audio compression -.-' )

                  ... don't forget to relax once in a while in order to make good job ! & sry for bad joke

                    Those are some beautiful PC screens !

                    Is there any plan to release a PC-specific gameplay video ?

                    Thanks.

                        @Darknitepulse: Max Payne 3 will perform well on PC. I'm sure Rockstar Toronto is doing an amazing job with the game.

                          By 'hands-on preview' we mean that gaming magazines and websites will start to report about their recent play time with Max Payne 3. Hope that clears things up for you.

                                I found materials too much glossy, especially rag t-shirt and plants couldnt be so, hope this thing will be fixed at release.
                                On other hand, details and design are awesome, gj!

                                    Woop woop Steam is sooooo perfect. And threads like this - dozens every week in "Help" section.
                                    Another reason for games not to be Steam exclusive. Not everyone is OK with always online Steam DRM.

                                    ***So in your view, Steam is the same as Origin and GFWL?***
                                    Yes. Same bulky useless clients.
                                    ***but in this day and age, for Multi Player, a form of DRM is required***
                                    No. I've seen games these days with good MP and without clients. BFBC2, GRID, Far Cry 2, Shift 2, NFS HP, heck - all EA games until Origin.

                                    Remedy, Double Fine, Tripwire etc. they don't have their own system. They aren't so big as R*.
                                    R* has SC which connects 7 games on 5 platforms. They won't be ditching it that just to please some hardcore Steam fans. Maximum what you'll get - Steamworks and 600 achievements.

                                    I'm ending speculations and waiting for official word from R*.

                                      @R* Gotcha, I'm sorry if I troubled you in any way, it's just that I know it must be hard for you to keep track of all the comments in all the articles you post here, so I thought that maybe you didn't see my question. Again, I'm really, really sorry, the last thing I want is to bother you.

                                        Hey Rockstar! I currently have the Special Edition of Max Payne 3 ordered for the PS3, but I wanted to know if the PC Version will have Steamworks, because I'd rather play this game on PC than on PS3, but it should have Steamworks, becuase that's a selling point for me.

                                          Thx R* for the answer, I will pre-order this game, I wanted the special edition but it's a shame that in Brazil we don't have this version available :S

                                          Will be a playable demo in xbox live before the release date?

                                          Thx!
