Despite only releasing eleven months ago and upcoming current-gen releases coming later this year, Rockstar Games has managed to attain the figure.
Such a behemoth of a franchise. Can't wait to double-dip on the PS4 version.
yeh getting it day one on ps4 but this time taking my time and not just doing main story missions. Will really enjoy it they shouldn't have wasted time on GTA online, and instead spent those resources into making more single player dlc, by now they should have released atleast 2 DLC packs GTA sells because of its single player and all the crazy stuff you can do within the gaming world
I'm most likely in the minority, but I didn't like GTA5 that much. It was a little underwhelming considering the budget involved.
@ 3-4-5 I will say 5 is a much bigger improvement of 4, however ultimately I do agree as well. I still vote San Andreas and Vice City the top of the series.
I think the Xbox version will look better. Perhaps some exclusive dlc content. Uh Microsoft?
Lol, keep dreaming. If a game looks better on xbone, you know is the developers fault.
Holy F**k this is one of your worst XD
Why would you want to limit people to such a great game by having exclusive content?
I get about 1/3 of the way done in GTA games and then I put it down never to return....anyone else like that?
I did with GTAIV cause it was boring. GTAV though I already played through once and may even do so again on PS4.
If I pay for any game, I'm getting through it no matter what
I usually do everything in all the R* titles but GTA IV is still far from completed because the game just sucks.
I will never complete GTA4 because of the depressing mood the game presents and it just bores me to death GTA 5 i finished because I enjoyed it but never beat it again I'll do it on the pS4 version now if R* does a remaster of ViceCity and San Andreas for PS4 I will buy it in a heartbeat.
So I'm not the only one who thought GTA4 looked depressing. I reckon it's the lighting and just the overall atmosphere of the map.
I finished 1,2,3, VC SA and V. IV annoyed the crap out of me.
Chinatown Wars is the only one I have ever quit, I got it on DS before they made it for PSP. Beat 3, Vice City, San Andreas, Liberty City Stories, Vice City Stories, 4, and 5. 3 I played through like 6 times, 4 and 5 I did 3 times each I believe.
I am like that with all GTA games.
I beat it, then come back to it over the next several months just messing around/looking for cool things. Like a shark, messing with the shark, and the inevitable death by shark. Can't really count how many hours I've just spent running up to people, jumping, then doing that roll maneuver onto them :P it NEVER gets not funny lmao
Yep I have done that with all GTA games and all gran turismos
34 Million guess there be no layoffs at rockstar north then. On serious note thats serious amount of cash earnt well done R* now bring on PC port next gen consoles.
With big developers like that, 34 million is probably a disappointment for Rockstar... Isn't that right Square Enix? ............ *cough*
So that is like 1 in 5 people who own a PS3 or 360 own this game. That is unbelievable.
especially since it sold the same as Mario Kart Wii which is owned by 1/3 of Wii owners.
Lol.. Kinda puts our fanboy war into perspective.. This game sold more then this game or this game hit 2m etc.. Ya well... Gtav crushed every exclusive combined lol
34 million copies shipped is mind boggling. They're easily probably going to hit 40 with zero problems.
Could be... I know the game gets its fair share of critism but i absolutely loved it.. It deserves all the success it sees IMO.. I beat it and will probably still buy it again for my x1.. Minus gtao.. Of course.. Lol
So i guess the Metacritic for GTA 6 is guaranteed to be over 95 then...good to know
GTA is such a massive game franchise. I remember going to the midnight release to pick up my copy and the different backgrounds, races, ages, and gender diversity that lined up for this game just shows how big it is. Rockstar could release the next GTA with zero advertising outside of a trailer and people will trust them and buy the game. I can't think of one game that has that kind of effect outside of maybe COD
expected, waiting for the pc version it would be cool if they could add different lobbies for adults and etc. The kids on the consoles ruined gta 5 for me alot.
WTF? How would one even enforce such a criteria.
Those 34 million "kids" are the reason a PC versions got funded I sure those 1+ million that will buy it on PC appreciate that
The game got boring to me...so I stop playing it.
I love the GTA games and I love how much you can do in them. I wish this game was longer. I get the feeling they spent more time worrying about the online than the single player portion. With 3 main characters I was expecting a very long game. It was a bit disappointing. I don't think I'll be getting this game again. If I do, it won't be full price. About the numbers, those are pretty amazing. These games will always sell no matter what. I like to see that (as opposed to COD)
Rating won't ever change for the worse for GTA franchise. Best get used to it.
I have yet to buy/play this. It will be added to my backlog in the coming 5 years or so.
34 million sold damn. Wonder how many will sell the next GTA
Just add the combined total of next gen consoles and Pc rigs then you get and image of the amount of copys that will sell.
I sincerely hope the content updates are far better managed.
And with the well over 12 million + next gen consoles and the massive amount of pc gamers Rockstar will be making a killing. Still don't know for the life of me why Rockstar at the first release of gt5 did not include the PC gamers bit unfair plus they could have had more sales then. well better late then never I suppose.
Pirates would have made it sold less, was a smart move judging by these numbers.
GTA V should get game of the year. It's good, has a high replay value, and sold the most.
GTA V was probably my favorite in the series so far. loved the storyline too. oh, and Trevor was awesome
I agree 100%. I loved Trevor. He represents the persona I've always been in every GTA.
They are going to ship a lot more when it launches on PC, Xbox one and PS4. I own it on Xbox 360 and will get it again on Xbox one or PS4, that game is so good. Cant wait to see it on this current gen.
Haha and people were sayin g COD was going to iutsell GTA, i just laughed at them
The only thing I hate about gta5 is that I'm supposed to play endless hours online to get the platinum trophy. I hate it when games do that.
Well deserved on Rockstar's part. Why are so many users under this post complaining.
Love the franchise. Will triple dip on this one..
