Mysteriously not pulled down and salted within moments of going live.

Here’s yet another little bit of evidence to file away in your practically bursting “proof Grand Theft Auto V is coming to PC” folder. Amazon.de, which like most of the super-retailer’s European storefronts is notoriously leaky, has popped up a listing for GTA V on PC.
The really remarkable thing about this is that at time of writing the listing was still up and publicly searchable. “Grand Theft Auto V”, it sayd. “Windows 7/Vista”, it says. Also quite a lot of things in German including an age rating and a notice that this product is not yet available, all of which sounds much more amusing in the tongue of the Fatherland.
Why Rockstar hasn’t thrown six flavours of wobbly over this when it’s still officially pretending a PC port isn’t happening, I don’t know. Possibly it’s just the slow arm of international bureaucracy. Maybe it’ll be gone by the time you read this. Maybe it really doesn’t exist and someone at Amazon in Germany put too many sugars on their Das Wheaten that morning.
