most of those budgets go straight into marketing

I have a feeling that The Last Of Us might be on the list soon, they've done so much with marketing and stuff

oh, and on a game lock in event I got 2 free (a3)posters for pre ordering the game, imagine how much that cost?

I agree. It lost the fun factor of the previous ones. All GTA games I spent days exploring the maps GTA 4 not so much.

The online is what made gta4 so fun.

I tried to go back and play the old ones recently and they are almost unplayable compared to GTA 4.

I'm not crazy about the story, but for just messing around GTA4 is by far the best.

Killzone 2 is the most expensive game ever and the best looking Fps

i think you might have misread the article.

"The game released on PS3, Xbox360 in 2010 and cost: 100,000,000$"
is referring to red dead redemption

whats referring to halo4 is
"The game released on Xbox360 in 2012 and cost: 100,000,000$"

Goes to show how insane the budget was on Shenmue when you consider how long ago it was released. GT5 was the first game to top it, 11 years later.

Shenmue in my eyes was way ahead of its time the thought process behind it was immense.

"Halo 4 is a first-person shooter video game developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox 360 video game console. The game was released in most territories worldwide on November 6, 2012.

The game released on PS3 in 2012 and cost: 100,000,000$"

They spent 50 MILLION dollars on La Noire? What a risk considering that here's me having never tried it out because I'd rather play some indie point and click for a tenth of the price instead.

And 60 million dollars on MSGS4 and all they could find was a grey pen to colour it in.

137 million on GTA5?? Hey let's not do anything stupid like spending 137 million on a sequel to a game that some people didn't even like that much.
