This is just... incredible. How else can I put it? I'm ridiculously hyped up for this game, let's hope it doesn't disappoint. Personally, I adored IV so if it's a mix between IV and the "classic" GTA games then I'm in for a treat! I'm a fan of both the new and old generation GTA games (SD & HD). I'm looking forward to seeing Los Santos in HD, it shone in the original San Andreas.

Speaking of San Andreas, I just need to collect a few collectibles then I'll have 100% completion. I just need to clear up my backlog, play The Last of Us so I can return to San Andreas for one last time before V.

If they could mix GTA extreme attention to details and realism with San Andreas fun factor then we are in for a treat!

GTA IV wasn't bad at all, it was just "different"

Well I wasn't a fan of 4 at all.
I got it day 1 and I still have not beat it
I can't force myself to finish it
But I will get 5 and I have high hopes that it will be good!
Oh and ViceCity was my favorite gta game

Yeah, I couldn't get into GTA4 either. Bought it on release day but don't even think I got 25% completed.

I'm holding out for a possible PS4 version, that's why I haven't pre-ordered.

Either way, that's some good numbers.

I don't think I'd have the patience to wait that long.

And if it doesn't come out for PS4?
tigertron  +   882d ago
I'll give it until early next year, if I've still heard nothing I'll go for the PS3 version.

Pretty nice numbers right there. Hype levels are currently astronomical. It'll be refreshing to has a new juggernaut this year outside of Call of Duty.

Blame me, I'm one of those 3 million ;)

Got it preordered, but will probably cancel so I can buy it on PSN on launch day and then, hopefully, transfer it to the PS4 via the cloud when it becomes available in 2014.

Not surprised at all. It will be the biggest selling game of all time.
