Apparently, users are having so many problems with the PC version of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV that Valve is offering some users full refunds on a case-by-case basis if it was purchased through their Steam service.

Users are also reporting poor performance, even with PC's equipped to reliably run games like Crysis. If you are experiencing too many problems, contact Steam support for a chance at a refund.

This, to me, is the key difference between console and PC gaming. While high-end PC's can push better graphics than the consoles, developers don't have a uniform hardware spec to use. This causes problems for the end user and there are only so many configurations a developer can test before release.

GTA IV, however, seems to be throwing an abnormally large amount of errors. Have you been affected by any of them?
