It will outsell the CoD of the year it comes out in

Doubt it. I don't think the GTA franchise has the allure it once had. GTA4 left a bad taste in peoples mouths as well. COD on the other hand, regardless of what certain people on the Internet think of it, sells more and more each year.

Well it's tough to tell right now. As more information gets released about GTA5 people will either get more interested in the game or lose interest.

If I had to judge right now I'd say GTA5 wouldn't outsell it seeing how people hated GTA4 so much that they are now praising the Saints Row series... and of course MW3 will more than likely shatter sales records if history repeats itself.

GTA4 has now sold just over 22 million copies.

Even if GTA5 sells half of that it will be at the 11 million units sold mark, which is colossal in its own right.

And mark my words GTA5 will sell more than 11 million in its lifetime.

It is a tough one. It has been a while since GTA 4 came out and a lot has changed. GTA 4 was critically acclaimed at the time but it didn't age well. GTA 4 came off the back of Vice city and San Andreas. GTA 4 was the down to earth, realistic GTA. Totally different from previous instalments which made them popular. The DLC for GTA 4 got 8-9s. Looking around 1UP did a article about how the DLC sold less than expected. I think Rockstar need to show us how the GTA franchise has evolved because a lot has changed since 2008.

Just look at what Rockstar did with RDR & especially Undead Nightmare, and you know that Rockstar still have got what it takes to make a great open world game.

GTA5 will be an amalgamation of GTA4's gameplay & storytelling mixed together with GTA San Andreas's all round zaniness & free roaming abilities.

Throw in animals, planes & Bigfoot, and we are gonna have one hell of a game!

Wii sports sold that well because it was bundled with the console.

I don't care if it does or not. I just want the game. Big fan of GTA :)

I don't think it will sell better than MW3, but in the end it doesn't matter. GTAV doesn't come out this year. When GTAV comes out next year along side the next COD then we can have this conversation and say which one we think will sell better than the other.

Since GTAV is going back to San Andreas days, GTAV will sell very well when it comes out.
