‘twice as large as the Super Bowl’ if you're american, because the rest of the world doesn't care that much.

"sold 29 million copies of the open-world game since its Sept. 17 release."

I'm American and still don't care about the Super Bowl lol.

Agreed. E3 is my Superbowl. My friends and I try to get together every E3 with snacks and drinks to crowd around a TV for some E3 action!

Depends on the teams that are playing. NFL is ruining football little by little but games can still be fun to watch, Especially the Super Bowl.

Same here plus loving lord sloths idea of a superbowl considering how many times I jump in shock or marvel at E3 coverage its like I watch sports only to see the screen with video game announcements lol

Superbowl is all about the ads for me. Occasionally the game is good, but not often.

PurpHerbison914d ago

Last two Super Bowls I enjoyed was the Saints victory, and the Giants victory.

GTA V's profits are like the creation of Las Vegas.

Still waiting for the PC version,if ever.

I think they should do a pc port and next gen. I think 16 people in one room is too small.

Looks like GTAV will break the world record of the most sold game in history selling over 90 million copies (if PC gets announced and next generation versions do)
