GTA 5 Will Sell 2 Million On PS4, Xbox One, PC According To Analyst

GTA 5's remakes on PS4, Xbox One and PC could bring in a fair amount of revenue for Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive. Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia says that these new versions of the open-world crime game could sell a combined two million in its first month. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS4, Xbox One)

2 MIRRION? across all 3? ONLY? these analyst don't know what they are talking about. If Take2 market it even half as much as they did with the original launch, it will do 2 million in the 1st week in NA alone!

I had a quick look around the web and it looks like gta4 sold less than a million on PC, if that's true then I'm amazed they are even bothering with gta 5 on PC at all.

@Perjoss - A game about crime getting pirated in huge numbers... oh the irony
equal_youth  +   361d ago
id say 2 million the day it gets released ^^
ZombieKiller  +   361d ago
Yeah considering 34M units so far and the Heists aren't even out yet. I say waaayyyyy more than 2 million. If I had to guess, I would say between 10M and 15M units with the holiday season.

Not to mention all the zombie DLC and PS4 exclusivity talk. I bet it will sell way more than 2 million.....guess that makes me a real analyst now huh? Lol :)
Seafort  +   361d ago
@Perjoss I'm guessing you looked at vgchartz for the PC sales numbers.

GTA4 was released on steam and other digital stores which vgchartz don't track.

Vgchartz is only good for retail sales and retailers don't stock PC games much now.

Approx 80% of people buy PC games digitally now.

So vgchartz is useless for PC sales data.

GTA bores me. But this game will sell, just obviously not as much as last gen.
clmstr  +   361d ago
Maybe it's because you are used to playing it at 700p25 (or 720p25 to be extremely precise?)

Aww sheet!

It'll sell A LOT more on steam, and I don't get why people keep calling this a remake/remaster... This is the original game that was made, the ps3/360 versions were lowered down to their hardware so it can run, the PC/PS4/XB1 versions are the real versions.
mkis007  +   361d ago
Then why didnt they release it when they announced it...After the announce there was no reason to hold it back due to lost last gen sales.
KwietStorm  +   361d ago
Don't believe everything you read, at least not literally. They said a lot of things between the lines.

CaptainFist  +   361d ago
Keep in mind this game was in development for about 5 years; at the time, it was planned to be released on the ps3/xbox 360 before next-gen consoles were even announced.
HaveSumNuts  +   361d ago
Do any of you guys think Rockstar is going to release online heists exclusively to the next gen and PC versions? They've been avoiding questions of the online heists since last year and I have a feeling that's the incentive they want to provide for purchasing the next gen versions, besides the upgraded graphics of course.

If they do, thats just rude. Before GTA V was launched they used heists as a selling point to get people interested in the MP.
If they do that exact same trick again, and people fall for that, then they are mugs.

HaydenJameSmith  +   361d ago
I think its more likely that they will release zombie DLC exclusively to the next gen versions and PC... but all the evidence modders have found for Zombie DLC, Casino DLC and Heists have been in the code (animations, separate game launchers etc.) of the last gen versions so if they weren't gonna release them they probably wouldn't have the code in them.

But I would like more incentive to get the next gen versions than just a graphic/performance boost...
ZombieKiller  +   361d ago

Someone has done their homework. It's all there. It's happening on last gen too. The animations are there, the evidence is too. Look at HikePlays, Domislive, or iCrazyTeddy..... each has great info on whats to come to San Andreas.

I think the only thing to come to next gen and NOT last gen is the zombie DLC (if any) and this is because the last gen consoles can't handle the number of zombies in the open world of GTA.
stefan771  +   360d ago
Not exclusively. They are probably planning a simultaneous launch across all platforms
beepbopadoobop  +   361d ago
I think it will easily hit 2 mil at least. Myself and my friends who own GTA on ps3 are all getting it for ps4 when it comes out, its one of those games you can always jump back into for some mad fun online with friends and it will be even better when it runs smoother. I dont mind double dipping for this game.
boing1  +   361d ago
Try 10 million. I can see it happening pretty easily.
clmstr  +   361d ago
What? Only 2 million on both current gen consoles and PC? Are you kidding me? This is the biggest and most critically acclaimed game of the last 5 years that is coming to Steam, come on! This game is going to dethrone DayZ and other Steam sale champions like a boss and will stay there for months. This is the defenitive version of the best sandbox, open world action game of the past generation!

"Arvind Bhatia says that these new versions of the open-world crime game could sell a combined two million in its first month."

You should at least read the description.
spacedelete  +   361d ago
i'm certain it will sell more than 2 million in a month. it will sell 2 million in a week on the PS4 alone. this is GTA. the only franchise that can compete against COD in sales. i'll bet GTA V will sell well right into the end of this gen.

2 million? Bahaha. It will sell 2 million on PS4 alone in the first month.

TheGrimReaper0011  +   361d ago
But do they mean 2 million in total?
Or 2 million on PS4, 2 million on XB1 and 2 million on PC?

Either way, I think it'll sell way more than that. Especially the pc market. Not only cause that'll end up the best version if you have the hardware, but you know people will mod it
HaydenJameSmith  +   361d ago
Won't sell that well on PC...

GTA 4 only sold 880k to this day on PC, thats why there in no rush to sell it on PC. It doesn't make them much money... PC games just doesn't sell as much as console games cause they biggest benefit of PC is all the free to play games.

But it'll be great to get on PC and see what cool MODs we get...
Kivespussi  +   361d ago
The biggest reason GTA IV didn't sell well on PC was because it was a crappy port. If R* makes a good port this time around, I'm sure this will sell around 2-3 million on PC alone.

HaydenJameSmith  +   361d ago
It's not the biggest reason as Modders easily fix bad ports... How do you explain other games not selling that well on PC ?

Watch Dogs: 0.17m
AC4: 0.45m
Titanfall: 0.3m
BF4: 0.98m

None of these even hit 1m so unless its pirated by more people that its bought PC games are never gonna sell that much. My point is PC games don't sell better than Console games...

I don't see GTA 5 selling 2-3m for a while... probably will get pirated that much, another reason for them to not rush to get it on PC.

That's BS.

GTA4 was on steam which is a digital store if you didn't know and vgchartz, where you got your data from, doesn't track digital sales.

I'd stop using vgchartz for PC sales data as it's completely inaccurate.

Go check DayZ sales on vgchartz (which has sold over 2mil copies so far) and see what it says if you don't believe me :)

Def getting this on X1.

100% completion on X360 but its soooo good I want to do it all again!
polloloco  +   361d ago
I can see this game selling 1.5-2 million on Ps4 alone.
Toman85  +   361d ago
I think it will move 3-4 mill copies on PC/PS4/X1 within 1 month. Have the original on PS3, will show my support, so PS4 and PC version are preordered!

TLOU sells 7-8m + DLC on PS3. Predicted sales for PS4 version are around 1-2m (long-term cautious estimate).

GTA V sells 32m on ps3 and xbox 360. Re-release gets two hottest new platforms and the ever expanding Steam, it's a comprehensive remake and they expect it to sell 1-2m? I'd say this thing probably leans towards 5-10m longterm.

But hey, I'm not an analyst and I don't know what I'm talking about, right? ;)

Edit: Right, it's the first month sales. Well, I guess I'm in line with the analysts then, after all.

no way more like 0er platform at least
Seafort  +   361d ago
PC gamers have been waiting for GTA5 for ages. This is going to sell a lot just on the PC.

I will be getting the game too even though I've completed it on PS3. I sold my PS3 copy and got back what I paid for it.

Now I get to play the game on my platform of choice, the PC. :)

Let's hope they fixed the multiplayer this time around.
HappyWithOneBubble  +   361d ago
PS4 3m
XB1 1.5m
PC 1.5m
Pirated on PC 10m
IHassounah  +   361d ago
PS4 - 2m
X1 - 2m
PC (steam) : 5m
LAWSON72  +   361d ago
PS4- 2M
Xbone- 1.25M
PC- 2.5M
By end of year, the game has legs and will easily sell more than this over time. I think it is coming out in a big month and the hype so far is not really noticeable so sky high numbers will not happen yet
