GTA V vs Modern Warfare 4: Battle for Supremacy and Billion Dollars, Who Will WIN?

Going by the track record of all previous Call of Duty game, each one managed to sell more units than its predecessor, however this time around there's no confirmation that Modern Warfare 4 will have same fate. During recent investor call, Activision stated that sales of next CoD in 2013 is expected to be down from Black Ops 2, and the reason behind this is "challenged global economy" and "the ongoing console transition,". (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Well I know if I had to choose I'd pick GTA V every single time.
Aceman18  +   524d ago
Yup my $$$$ are going to GTA5 easily.
Darth Stewie  +   524d ago
Agree Rockstar actually cares about their game unlike Activision and their COD devs.
Septic  +   524d ago
Well, the original Infinity Ward, those responsible for the original Modern Warfare seemed to care so your sentiments seem a little harsh.

But Rockstar are tremendously talented and always raise the bar in some fashion. They care about the quality that's for sure. For their fans? I don't know but we've heard about poor treatment of their staff before.

I won't be surprised if GTA V does win.

2013 belongs to GTA V all the way......no doubt at all........
plaZeHD  +   524d ago
Oh yes, there is a doubt, because in my opinion there are better games than Grand Theft Auto 5 that are coming in 2013.
Majors  +   524d ago
You failed to read the question...
GTA5 vs Modern Warfare 4
Yes there are some amazing games due out soon, but thats not what was asked.

GTA all day
patriotZero  +   524d ago
GTA 5 easily
MightyMatt101  +   524d ago
They both will sell a ridiculous amount! My pick is GTAV (no brainer) as far as sells go no losers here.
Zichu  +   524d ago
It will be GTAV this year for me. I didn't even buy BO2 last year, my brother did though, usually I buy the CoD games, but didn't fancy buying it lol.

My brother isn't into games like GTA anymore. I can see a lot of people getting GTAV instead of MW this year though.
Sandmano  +   524d ago
Gta if I had to decide but Im getting both

modern warfare 4 will be the death of cod this gen
Majors  +   524d ago
It may be that last on this gen consoles, so you may be correct.

@Majors -
I don't think so. I think Activision will release for both next and current gen.
I think they'd realize a year from now next gen won't have a huge audience.
So, if they were to sell only for next gen they would lose on a lot of sales..

But, ahhhhh well, who knows. I may end up being surprised.

Boring open world, fetch and carry game vs action packed shooter. I know which one I would choose.
Karpetburnz  +   524d ago
I havnt purchased a single Call of Duty game this entire generation and Im not about to start, I have only borrowed one of the games for a couple weeks.

What Idiot would choose CoD over GTA 5?
Stedron  +   524d ago
Me
Scenarist  +   524d ago
lol admitting to be an idiot ? OK here is your free pass !
ape007  +   524d ago
CoD is one of my fav games and GTA is perhaps my fav game ever, GTA V will be pure quality and it look like to be one of the greatest games ever and will set the bar so high not only for open world games but all games in general

Now..... CoD MW4, this game have the potential to be phenomenal IF and only IF they rehired the original IW talent and Introduced a whole new engine, yeah imagine this IW Original Devs using ID tech 5 engine (the one used in RAGE)
that would be an Ape007 dream come true, just imagine the animation

id TECH 5 IS CRAP AND BROKE. HAVE YOU PLAYED RAGE?
aliengmr  +   524d ago
id tech 5? Really? Not Cryengine 3? Or a new custom engine?
#13.2 (Edited 524d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
ape007  +   523d ago
I said that cause CoD is actually running on a heavily upgraded ID Tech 3, the quake 3 one
Diffraction_Fos  +   524d ago
Personally, I'd pick GTA V any day of the week. However, the COD masses all around the world just might prove to be too many for R*.
dan_chan89  +   524d ago
GTA V. But as much as i hate to admit it, it will be close.
Stedron  +   524d ago
COD all the way, I'm bookmarking this will me fun to see :)
aliengmr  +   524d ago
It'll be close, but I wouldn't be surprised of COD came out ahead.

I can scream all day about how much I dislike COD, but the "yearly" sales don't lie. COD is a staple at this point.

All the same though GTA's dev time combined with the slightly waning popularity of COD might mean GTA will out sell. It will be close because, as I understand, MW is considered the better COD.
Scenarist  +   524d ago
In MY humble gaming world..... EVERYTHING gets a backseat when rockstar releases a new GTA main game and 5 will be no exception....

yes there are other games on my radar but this is the BIGGEST BRIGHTEST blip
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   524d ago
COD will probably sell more But ID choose GTAV any day way better quality game.
venom06  +   524d ago
"challenged global economy" = MW3 sucked and everyone knows it, so NOBODY will want to buy MW4..... thats really what that translates to... plus, BF4 is pretty sure to crap all over CoD this year. It does every year in gameplay, just more 12yr kiddies like their easy, quick CoD fix.
digger18  +   524d ago
12 year old kiddies? My friends and I are all in our mid forties and we all play COD. If anything, we all think its only little kiddies that play GTA games

Wrightylfc88  +   524d ago
we all no we would choose gta5 but we also no that cod will sell more. Always has done and always will
i8urCAKE  +   524d ago
When GTA V comes out, cod is dead.
Mr-SellJack  +   524d ago
seriously why not compare battlefield 4 and not GTAV?anyways GTAV fo sure will lose but will definately be the better game...even though it looks like a fun game now unlike GTAIV,the only fear factor to me is that GTAV's storyline looks meh so far unlike RDR.Seriously 3 characters?wtf?no main character?!!looks like it's becoming like saints row TBH(that has 3 main characters)
