Something amazing may be about to happen: a PC release will have enhanced graphics but won't be delayed til six months after the console version comes out. Rockstar Games has posted the first screenshots of Max Payne 3 PC, and it's promising "gloriously increased resolution and graphical detail" for PC gamers.
Rockstar doesn't go into specifics, but it does say the graphical improvements will be visible in "both the epic story and the explosive multiplayer modes." Also, it adds that "more detailed information including special graphics hardware support and enhancements" will be revealed alongside minimum system requirements soon. That "soon" should be anytime before the game's May 29 release (or June 1 if you live in Europe).
By the looks of those screenshots, which we've included in the gallery below, we can look forward to at least high-resolution character textures. Better shader effects would be nice, too, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
