People seem to be understanding this wrong. They have SHIPPED 29 million copies not sold. Which means most of those copies have gone to stores and waiting to be bought. Same thing happened with BF3 when they shipped 14 million copies and people thought it sold more then MW3, but they many of those shipped copies didnt sell.

And they've sold through 23 million weeks ago. Insane and remarkable numbers no matter how you want to look at it.
solidt12  +   641d ago
Yeah but the store already bought 29 million so to Rockstar that's sold. but not retail sold.
cdrorbaugh  +   641d ago
You still don't understand the number's 23 million copies sold retail in store..
hay  +   641d ago
@cdrorbaugh: You both are right.
solidt12 wrote clearly retailers bought 29 million copies, therefore Rockstar already made their money.
It's shops problem now to sell all of it. But it's also true that 23 million copies have been sold at retail.

It will surpass cod which is an amazing feat

Over 23 million sold in less than sixty days... tell me that's not impressive.

That's not impressive.

I don't play sports games, let alone Tennis (not since some demo disc on PS1!!!)

I can honestly say, I loved playing tennis in GTA V, game is astounding with all you can do and how well it is all implemented.

Love the submersible as well.

Truly a top of the line game

i found myself playing golf and messing around in the stock market more than stealing cars and causing mayhem..that is ridiculous and funny to me. where are the headlines? "Video games teaching our kids about.....GOLF and ECONOMICS!?"

what the actual fuck? 29 MILLION units? Whether that's shipped or sold doesn't matter.

29 Million units!? how is that even possible?
Misaka_x_Touma  +   641d ago
mario kart wii is at 34 million it possible
Spontogical  +   640d ago
yeah I know but that's Mario Kart - they bundle that with everything in existence.

These days any game that crosses 3 million I'd say is a super success.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   640d ago
Mario Kart Wii was not bundled at launched.
But it came with Wii Wheel.

good job rs, nothing can beat game consoles
plaZeHD  +   641d ago
The single player disappointed me to a degree. Not a lot of fun content like in San Andreas.
KwietStorm  +   640d ago
You sure you're not talking about GTA IV?
Pogmathoin  +   641d ago
I just love switching between the characters to see what they were doing.... Trevor waking up on a beach wearing a dress and dead bikers around him..... Brilliant!
sprinterboy  +   641d ago
I wonder how many of them are under 18, I bet 50%.
paul-p1988  +   640d ago
Judging by who i have played against online, i would say you could be right!
DJrantz  +   641d ago
Good news. Now the company will grow and invest in bigger better games
Killman  +   641d ago
$60 x 29,000,000 = 1,740,000,000

I know there are other markets to consider but....wow, that is insane profit.

I'm quite sure it doesn't follow that pattern. I highly doubt any one corporation takes in 100% of a $60 game.

How are Sony and Microsoft getting paid, Hmmm... I'm guessing they take a cut.
