33Mil copies sold - that's a lot!

How about revealing how much was made by destroying the MP with free to play schemes on a 60 USD game?

Septic1402d ago

What?? What free to play schemes? Do you even know anything about GTA 5? Can you buy in-game currency? It never came into force.

Some seriously self-entitled gamers these days smh(I use the latter term loosely).

porkChop1402d ago

Uh... yeah, you *can* buy in-game currency. And Rockstar has gone out of their way with every new update to make money harder to earn legitimately, practically forcing many to buy cash cards.

brokenbracket1402d ago

LOL, the fact that five other people agreed with him just baffles me. There's no free to play schemes in GTA Online. Is there in-game currency that you can purchase with your own money? Yes. Are you required to purchased said in-game money with your own hard earned real money? No. Everything I've bought in the game was earned by completing missions, survival rounds, deathmatches, and races. Anyone who buys those "Shark" cards are just simply impatient. If you love the game enough like I do, you'll be willing to spend hours playing a wonderful game, while earning the profits in the process.

The never made it into the game..When launch came out the mp was down for a week and rockstar scrapped the idea of micro-transaction. Well at least that was in February the last time I played it. Maybe there are now but there wasn't any for me.

Palitera1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

Yes, they disabled the option TEMPORARILY a while ago.

What was your point again? Do you even know anything about GTA 5?

Some people...

Septic1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

Youre deluded. Youre telling me that this shark pack destroyed the mp of the game?? This shark pack that came into affect a month back that barely anyone has even heard of?

Frwee to play schemes? Do you know the difference between microtransactions and free to play? And do you even play GTA? These cash packs aren't the issue. The lack of heists and early MP instability compromised the MP in the game.

But to suggest Rockstar has cashed on these shark cards is ridiculous. The game was a record breaker at launch.

The topic is about how many copies sold. Youre crying over something that didnt affect the sale of those copies.

porkChop1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

Only the Megalodon card came out a month ago. The others were re-activated about a month after release, November I believe.

"But to suggest Rockstar has cashed on these shark cards is ridiculous."

That was back in February, how much do you think they've made since then?

"Overall, Take-Two posted a profit $510.7 million, up dramatically compared to the $33.1 million the company hauled last year."

At least 10% of their total profit for the year was just from GTA Online's microtransactions.

psyxon1402d ago

it's totally rockstar's fault for gamers deciding to buy in game currency lol.

MrFit1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

Did you even play it? I played the mp for 90+ hours and never put out a dime.

@Septic - Well said, couldn't agree with you more.
