"We are sorry to say that Grand Theft Auto V sold well below our expectations, as we only shipped 12 million units in 2013."

The above quote is completely fabricated from my mind, but that's what he's going to be saying. Take-Two should know better.

this would work with most games but this will easily hit 18 mil.

NO game will hit 18 mil. Call of Duty can't even do that. Look up VGChartz to put it in perspective.

Black Ops 2 has Sold 12 million copys in under a year.

Grand Theft Auto V is much more popular.

Just look at how many view the trailers have gotten, The logo alone made Headline news on some news broadcasters.

No game has sold as much in that short amount of time as Black Ops 2. To date, GTA 4 has sold about 20 million, and that game has been out for 5 years. You are KIDDING yourself if you think these numbers are even close to feasible.

They will get that number if it's just as fun or better than San Andreas.

It's been five years since the last GTA game and I believe it's the biggest game of the generation. I believe it will set a new sales record.

Naw COD will. Look at it this way the teenagers that flock to GTA last yr are now older and will certainly buy the game. But the teenagers from this Gen is all about COD and that's what helps COD thrive. Plus the online that keeps millions attached to it. GTA can't compete simply because this generation is online centric.
