Wowza!

So basically that means it became 4th best selling game ever (and it has only launched on 2 platforms so far)!
Just imagine sales numbers when it launches on PC/PS4!

That's insane!

Well deserved too. Unlike other developers who are content with releasing annual rehashes of their games, Rockstar take their time in crafting their games. The game oozes quality (mp problems aside).

HOLY WOW!

That is truly insane.

Now I feel sheepish that I haven't played it yet.

Yeah because apparently the Xbone version would not sell?

@LAWSON knew this was coming from somebody.

Does this mean we'll get that PC version soon?
Agent2009  +   454d ago
This means GTA V sells 32.5 million copies to date... he he he!

Seriously now, PC version is an inevitable thing. I suggest some patience - perhaps they're working hard to bring a proper port, not a broken shit aka GTA IV PC.

I'm pretty certain there'll be a PC version, along with next gen versions. There's so much more money to be made here.

Congrats Rockstar.
dedicatedtogamers  +   454d ago
Not sure why PC gamers clamour for ports of Rockstar games. Their ports really, really suck. GTA4 had a ton of issues, and Max Payne 3 and L.A Noire barely worked (or didn't work at all, for some people).

And I say that as a person who "owns" Max Payne 3 and LA Noire on PC. I put "owns" in quotes because neither game has ever functioned quite right, despite countless hours spent trying to troubleshoot.
LAWSON72  +   454d ago
Max Payne 3 is claimed to be a fantastic port that is even well optimized. I have had no problems with LA Noire but that was made by Team Bondi

I would think this would mean that there won't be a PC version -- at least not for awhile. What market left is there to buy the game?

well, I bought it on my PS3 and enjoyed the hell out of the main story.

But having lower loading times, possible mods and enhanced graphics are the reasons why I would gladly purchase the game again for PC and in the same time give my PS3 copy to a friend that didn't had the chance to play it yet.

I got the digital ver,on ps3 hope they have that 10$ upgrade deal 4 the next gen ver

Had to buy the game twice due to a scratched disk. Will be buying it again for PS4 definitely.
Christopher  +   454d ago
Really? Not sure 1080p over mostly 720p would be good enough reason for me to get any last gen game. I'd consider PC if I was into mods or they really had some game altering mods.
DeadlyFire  +   454d ago
They likely will throw in a DLC story kicker as well.

"Best Selling Game of 2013"

I'm not sure, I will have to consult my analyst.

that is low for a GTA title
admiralvic  +   454d ago
Yes. Lets compare lifetime sales to a game that has only been on sale for a couple of months and in those months we had 2 new systems launch and a game many consider to be GOTG.
Stryfeno2  +   454d ago
Xbox one version please.
theshredded  +   454d ago
I prefer pokemon,minecraft,tlou and tomb raider to be best selling.A man can dream
Can't believe how upcoming generations are catering to these childish games like COD,GTA, AND F'ckin Candy Crush

GTA is childish but Pokemon and Minecraft aren't?
theshredded  +   454d ago
yes they aren't and judging by ur name u must definately consider them childish.Fact is minecraft is a revolutionary game and Pokemon is a gnarly,addictive game that is the best when it comes to games linking from a non gaming platform.

Good on you Rockstar!

Now make a GTA that is actually fun outside of and after the story missions like San Andreas and Vice City. Let us buy houses to move into, with garages to store our cars. Give us more weapons, more cheats, more clothes and accessories. You cant even buy a watch in gta 5...

Half way through GTA 5 I was thinking that it is one of the best games I have ever played but it soon went down hill from a 10/10 to a 7.5.

Those PS3 Commercials Sold it. If you guys remember GTA4 was advertised for the 360. And to me that somewhat hurt sales. But Not this time.
