GearNuke: "GTA V breaks new sales record for Take-Two Interactive."
Good now go out and buy some better servers. Still have issues at least once a week when trying to play online. Happens on both PC and X1
There are just too many users. Unless there is a magical technology to improve server performance, I doubt they can do anything. Just buying more servers won't help.
Lol i'm sorry but that's utter BS... MMO's run fine with thousands of people on consistently. BS excuse. Rockstar are overrated the PC version isn't half as optimized as everyone says and then there support team is a joke, a remaster on "next gen" consoles that isn't even 60fps which laughable.
uhh @darklordmalik that magic technology is called scaling. When more resources are required they get taken from a big pool.
once a week is an issue for you? I'm on ps4 and haven't come across any online issues...but what I find surprising is why you have a xbone despite being able to play games on your pc...
I have these things called friends that only play on Xbox so I get games for that system so I can play with them.
i know l love games but i would never buy same games on two platforms. i've seen many people do that. i just find it really surprising. OT: woah... 52 million? that's freaking huge. i really didn't bother about GTAV after the bitter taste that was GTAIV. i just thought that game was pure crap compared to older GTAs.
I play games on phone, pc & console.. there's plenty of times one suits more than the other. Also, more than ever it makes sense to have a Xbox console and PC, considering Windows kernel unification is inbound in the next few months - with the Xbox ecosystem and announced features (things such as buy a game once for a license on multiple platforms) coming to PC free of charge. OT: Impressive numbers only bested by Tetris, Wii Sports and Minecraft. Double the lifetime sales of GTAIV. Kind of fitting for the most expensive AAA title ever made.
Online is terrible. I consider myself lucky if I ever get into a decent race.
Need Bully 2
B*tch please, more like new Red Dead.
I want both!
lolz, got to agree with Multi, we can have both. I think we will see Red Dead 3 at E3 though.
Extremely underrated game. Playing it on PS3 right now and LOVING IT! Rockstar has enough teams to do LA Noire, Red Dead and Bully. North did GTA, Vancouver did Bully, Team Bondi actually did LA Noire, San Diego actually did Read Dead. I think Rockstar Leeds might do the LA Noire sequel (or NY Noire!! DA HYPES) as they did the PC version and helped with the console version. Red Dead and LA Noire are easy bets for sequels as they sold really, really well. Red Dead with 12 million, LA Noire with 5 or so million (last I remember anyway) will be very likely. But I can see a situation were we get all 3 though. (Hopefully) I'm not sure why many don't factor in that Rockstar isn't 1 team....
i would die happily after playing that lol.dont wanna miss this thing.
Yet no mention of DLC...
They've had a slew of free content (vehicles, guns) every update so far.
Talking about story DLC.
they mentioned story dlc is in the works already.
I wonder when people will stop buying this game.... It's meh now, IDC how good they make the graphics..
If GTA 5 sells like GTA 4 did, people won't stop buying it until GTA 6 comes out. Most games have the majority of their sales in their first month of release, but GTA is different. GTA keeps selling. Literally over half of GTA 4s sales were from after launch.
GTA havent really stopped selling well after launching any GTA title since GTA3 i dont think. I agree they need start churning out some more older IPs they have. Bully RD Manhunt LA Noir Agent come on R* Listen to your fans Smugglers Run Midnight club
You mad, brah?
*sigh* this is great and all but Rockstar seriously needs to start focusing on other games, the game sold as much as it ever will. Time to give us Red Dead 3, Bully 2, LA Noire 2, Agent, or a new IP.
Red Dead, sure Bully 2, sure GTA 6, I'm all for it in 2-3 years LA Noire, was fun, but the appeal didn't last... These aren't annual releases so no one should ever get tired of these amazing games
I never had the chance to play Bully so what's so special that has you all talking about it?
I want to know just exactly how much money they made though, an how its split between developer and publisher. Anyhow, can't wait for whatever Rockstar has in the works for us next.
It's a great game, but i was expecting too much after the amazing Red Dead Redemption. Anyway, Rockstar it's one of the best developers, for sure, can't wait for the next game, or a single-player DLC for GTA V.
Screw MineCraft, good game and all, but it shouldn't amount to being the third best selling game because they count the lackluster pocket edition version, which sold 20m units alone.
I wonder if anyone is working on a mod so you can fly to Libity City from Los Santos? There must be a mod team out there that has the ability to make that happen.
Its like the twilight of video games, so many people fed into it and no one really knows why
I have bought this game twice I admit it.
and I'm just sitting here waiting for a steam sale
what will Rockstar games work on next?
Rockstar Presents Table Tennis II? A new IP would be nice. Surprised they haven't released a remaster of 'Red Dead' on the PS4/X1/PC.. would seem like a no-brainer.
Well deserved success! Now here's what I'd like to see in the future. Red Dead Redemption 2 (or whatever they call it) Bully 2 The Warriors HD Remaster GTA VI set in Vice City Midnight Club Los Angeles for Next Gen consoles and PC PSP GTA games on iOS and Android Boxes Is that too much to ask?
yeah bro thats too much ;)
That's a lot of units.
Minecraft is the only one that has legitimately sold more. Wii Sports was a pack in with all original Wii hardware units and Nintendo always misleadingly includes pack ins with sales numbers. Tetris doesn't count either since it isn't a single game. There have been like 50 versions of Tetris since the NES and they are all combined together for sales figures.
And Minecraft is not full price too and has some cheaper versions of it on mobile devices that are good, but are not really that close to the original game or its console counterparts.
Nice I still have not got it yet I am holding out for the cheapest possible copy on pc may get at the end of the year.
Considering that this is the only 60$ "full price" game on the list and that it is not even 2 years old... WOW. And I guess this is why R* doesn't rush GTA and puts out a new game every year. They did take their time (even more so for the PC version) to get the best possible result and it literally paid out. It's great to see a AAA game that is very complex and took a lot of time to make get the sales it deserves. Sure, R* is in a position that not many other publishers/developers are in (or think they are in), but R* really perfected their business model.
That is just cuckoo.
sad to see this,I wouldn't even put it in my top 20 but still atleast it's a good game unlike Minecraft or mobile crap
Congrats to R* please give us Warriors HD next Rdr and Rdr from ps3/xbox360 for next gen bully HD and bully sequel la moire sequel agent news Gta HD collection or remaster A new gta in 1980 vice city
Good news for Rockstar, I'm happy for them - that's why I bought the game full price which is a rarity for me. I didn't really enjoy GTAV that much though - story and characters were very weak. I don't think I liked any of the characters and definitely not the main 3. Trevor was over the top even for GTA, Franklin was ok but had absolutely no relevance to the story and Michael was pretty annoying overall to me. Terrible ending pretending to give the player a choice rather than writing an ending. Fair enough if you were making important decisions the whole game but that wasn't the case. Not quite as bad as Far Cry 3's ending but just as pointless. I hope the next GTA makes a lot of improvements in these areas. And I would love it if the game wasn't set in USA for a change. Europe or East Asia would be cool. Crime game in Africa would also be very unique. Bit worried we'll just get more of the same with these numbers coming from V.
Gotta believe most only want bully because it's set in the uk. I wonder if they'd still clamor for it if they changed the setting.
Every copy sold's $60 well-earned. Rockstar's always gonna be my favorite third-party dev. Really, really hoping for some story DLC though, if not zombies!
