GTAv was so so good, from what I hear and have seen as I have not played the game is that COD did not really change anything and was just more of the same.

Either way I think we all knew GtAV would sell more.

i know it's still a sequel, but at least it's a sequel they took the time to create, making improvements to the game in just about every area.

unlike the identikit approach these yearly games take.

so good for rockstar.
thoroughly deserved the sales for making one of, if not the best games of the year.
no, make that the generation.

Doesn't matter cod still sells more because it has a game come out every year unlike gta whoch only has a new game like every 5 years or so.

I can understand where he is coming from. GTA V is the better game, it did outsell CoD last year, but CoD pulls great numbers every year. Ghosts didn't sell the same amount as Black Ops 2, but it's nearly at 20 million.

I bet it will be the same this year, it will probably outsell Ghosts due to there not being a GTA game.

If on average CoD sold 20 million each year for 5 years, it sold 100 million copies, compared to the 30 million copies or so that GTA V sold.

Yeah, unfortunately you're correct.

Activision ahve 2 year dev times
Rockstar have 4-6 years for their big hitters

Activision make a much bigger profit.

Even so it's nice to know that Rockstar get the sales they deserve for their effort. Cod will fall soon. I really hope Titanfall drags it down and by the time Titanfall 2 is out, COD will be abolished by the efforts of Respawn and other devs.

The gta franchise total has made more money, selling a total of over 160 million copies, while cod franchise is around 120 million.
