I don't doubt this figure at all.

nrvalleytime1808d ago

That's one billion, five hundred million dollars if each copy sells for $60.

O_O

Pandamobile1808d ago

Publishers only make about $40 on the $60 MSRP.

nrvalleytime1808d ago

^ True, but total gross wouldn't be impacted by individual return.

calis1808d ago

if only GTA sold for $50 in Australia.

Nearly all titles are under $60.00AUD and include free delivery. They also service the US. It's a fantastic site that i've been buying from for years.

Otherwise, check JB Hi-Fi. They sold both AC:III & Halo 4 for $69.00.
They're being forced to be competitive.

Yeah, and Take Two would still be broke by the end of the year with their financial planning.

ThanatosDMC1807d ago

If it's better than GTA4 then i dont doubt it.

I want good games to sell a lot, and good innovative games to sell even more...

GraveLord1808d ago

You should. Not only is this Jesse due uninformed(GTA IV didn't sell more than 20mil. In fact its just under that)

The game took about 4 years to reach this level of sales. This game sold less than San Andreas. Console fatigue is already setting in, GTA V will be a huge success, but it won't do COD levels.(25m+) at least not within the year.

Outside_ofthe_Box1808d ago (Edited 1808d ago )

I agree. I'm having a hard time believing that GTA5 will sell 25 million copies within a year.

Shaman1807d ago

GTA IV is currently 24 mil I don't know what you are talking about. Check your facts!

raytraceme1807d ago

gta 4 came out when consoles were at their infancy and sold ~20million between 2 consoles. Now with a much higher console base i don't doubt that they can break 25 million hell I predict 30 million + in a year.

kneon1808d ago

It will only be 24,999,999 because I won't be buying it :)

Y_51501808d ago

I love how much you are being a douche right now. :)

bumnut1807d ago

Im not buying on release day, im going to wait until the biased/paid reviews have passed. GTA4 got awesome reviews but I found it boring.

T3MPL3TON 1807d ago

I like how you think your none purchase would stop it from hitting 25.. beyond full of ye' self ain't ya?

bumnut1807d ago

^^^^^^^ Relax, it was only a joke.

kneon1807d ago

I don't get the negative reaction, it's just a joke. Are you offended that I'm not buying the game or concerned that it may not make 25million?

Actually they meant in 12 weeks.

Awesome_Gamer1808d ago (Edited 1808d ago )

It will sell more..
@Mods: please bookmark this page and ban me if that didn't happen, i'm serious.

Cam9771807d ago

Neither do I. Rockstar, prepare to become the richest developer ever...

showtimefolks1807d ago

I believe it will do more than that because there will be a pc version and a wiiu version most likely within the 12 months. With ps3 and Xbox360 install ate above 65 million GTA could end up being the best selling game of all time. And by the time it comes out both ps3 and Xbox360 will be around 70-75 million.

Not in every country are the games $60 so money adds up

@ TiberusX87

I wont do what i did last time, I bought the special edition and even bought all the dlc separately. This time I will wait for all the dlc to come out and buy it digitally so I can game share on the psn.

Zeixama1808d ago

Yeah, baby!!!Bring it on the hype !!! Let's go back to where we belong again : Saaaaan Andreassss!!!!

mt1808d ago

if it is anything close to San Andreas, it might do that. if it is similar to GTA4 i doubt it.

sdozzo1808d ago

That's CoD style. It will be big.

Swiggins1808d ago

I don't know if that's true anymore to be honest, CoD is pretty much the 800 lb gorilla of gaming.

ABizzel11807d ago

@HeavenlySnipes

I have to disagree as well. GTA holds more weight amongst gamers simply because when one is announced it's an event. Call of Duty's expected, and it's the new Madden of gaming.

That being said Call of Duty comes out every year and sells GTA numbers EVERY YEAR. There's no other game doing that regardless of what I think about the franchise it's probably the fastest growing / selling franchise of all time in the last half a decade. To put it in perspective in the last 5 years (November 2007 - now) Call of Duty has released 6 Call of Duty games (UGH) and they have gone on to sell over 100 million copies.
