Can Destiny's Sales Catch GTA V?

Destiny is currently around $500m of sales versus GTA V which did $800m on its first day. Is there the potential for Destiny to catch up and even over-take GTA 5 in sales though?

Exactly. Not a chance. GTA is too big a brand and known/played by hardcore and casual gamers. Many casual gamers won't play destiny, or won't even know what it is.

Agreed. Destinys fan base is far smaller, alot of people just bought into the hype of this new IP.
Many are satisfied but just as many are hugely disappointed. I don't the sales will slow down quickly, especially as so many under-hyped games are hitting this fall.

Yes, until GTA V releases again for PS4, XB1 and PC

That's the only advantage they have with Destiny sales, being released on PS3, PS4, XB360 and XB1.

But that's just how I think it'll happen.

Good point but even with that advantage I don't think Destiny will beat GTA numbers.

I think that's a bit of a tall order since Destiny is a completely new IP.

just the fact that were talking about it means destiny is doing great... what other brand new IP has anybody ever insinuated could out-sell GTA? $500mil is AWESOME, every game doesn't have to be the new absolutely biggest seller ever... and im happy with destiny either way! (glad to see it succeeding though!)

Maybe in another dimension it can. Not this one

Nah GTA Smashed it and continues to do so, when The New Gen versions appear game over for Destiny's hopes of an overtake.
