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.
Not everyone has access to the internet at their residences. So, no; Destiny will not match those numbers....GTA can be played and enjoyed offline wherein Destiny cannot.
All of that is right but 500 millions is amazing for a new ip that is cross gen. I think the game is very cool and iis gonna be the biggest seller of 2014.
Not even one percent of the games make this kind of money. Nevertheless Activision must be happy with the result. Especially when people already compare with the GTA series where the last 3 main games did more than 20 million copies and since the beginning the sales grew after each installment.
Nop Come on, have you talk with people that has the game? Is an average game!
Nope, this game is already boring. Gta is awesome.
This is one of those hard hitting questions that everyone was asking.
Enough of this sales garbage, is the game any good? Is it worth the $60 plus tax? I played the Beta and was underwhelmed, but I am still kind of interested. I just can't afford to drop hard earned cash on "kind of interested" however.
talk about click bait it was never gonna stand up to GTA only one powerhouse could even stand a chance while it is a activision ip COD is the only hope to ever break 800 million or maybe GTA 6
