I don't doubt this figure at all.

nrvalleytime2203d ago

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

O_O

Pandamobile2203d ago

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

nrvalleytime2203d ago

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

calis2202d 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.

ThanatosDMC2202d 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...

GraveLord2202d 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_Box2202d ago (Edited 2202d ago )

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

Shaman2202d ago

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

raytraceme2201d 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.

kneon2202d ago

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

Y_51502202d ago

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

bumnut2202d 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 2202d ago

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

bumnut2202d ago

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

kneon2201d 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_Gamer2202d ago (Edited 2202d ago )

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

Cam9772202d ago

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

showtimefolks2202d 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.

Zeixama2202d ago

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

mt2202d ago

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

sdozzo2202d ago

That's CoD style. It will be big.

Swiggins2202d ago

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

ABizzel12202d 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.
