Definitely no surprises on this list, always good to see the dollar values behind some of the great games though.

Kudos for putting the whole list on 1 page ! Yeah, i think that DESTINY will get back the 500million . They need to sell around 8.5 to 10 million copies . I think they will end up selling between 13 to 16 million copies of DESTINY .

I thought Bungie clarified the game didn't cost 500 millions of dollars?

I think the 500 million includes marketing perhaps, not sure.

Wasn't Gran Turismo 5 rumored to cost 200mil? Not on the list though......

It wasn't, GT5's budget only 60m, surprised?..
mayberry  +   110d ago
Not suprised at all. I was just trying to remember a fact I thought I read somewhere. Sorry for my bad memory.....

I did not know Too Human cost so much to make. I actually liked the game but it was a mess. It had some great ideas but I think it was just to sloppy of a execution in the end.

They should have had more explorable environments, the co op should have gave the option of different characters and the game ended right when it was getting really good.

Didn't Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning cost $150 million and sink Big Huge Games and 38 studios?
InTheLab  +   110d ago
No. The MMO 38 Studios were bumbling about with for years before acquiring Big Huge games and Amalur...

Destiny was $500 Million for the franchise, not just the one game.
