CraveOnline: "Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick announced during today’s Fiscal Year 2015 Earnings Call that Grand Theft Auto 5 has surpassed the 34 million units sold mark."
That's crazy that Tetris is number 1 with 143 million, and likely to stay that way for many years to come if not forever.
It (Tetris) came bundled in with millions of the original gameboys just like wii sports and the original Wii ;)
Is that counting the whole tetris franchise?
probably counting every single port to every single device ever GTAV will get more sells once its on PS4/Xbone/PC
imagine if GTA 3 was bundled with the Ps2
Who knows, since GTA5 did so well, is getting a port, and refreshed ports have tendency to sell even 80% of the original(DMC3SE). This would be about enough revenue to give the game bundled with every PS4 and XBO and inflate the sales immensively. Would work wonders for brand awareness.
I can see GTA V taking the 4° spot from Super Mario Bros (NES)! it will surpass 40 million sales, but i can't see it surpassing Minecraft, this is just too much... Anyway, the top 3 games are huge sellers, and nothing will ever surpass Tetris!
I wont see it as impressive as super mario bros. GTA5 is being played on multiple systems. Super mario bros was able to do it all on one console.
Love how you get disagrees, when what you said is entirely accurate. If you disagree with this, you are an idiot who disagress with that which can easily be proven. Just saying.
Yes but the pre-owned market is huge now, where is as practically non existent back then how many sales of GTA 5 has that taken up another 5/10 million?
I think it's lame how the Pocket Edition of MineCraft amends to the game's total sales; the PE has sold 20 million units!
34 million!!!!!!!!!! How in the world.
I wonder how many people still play online?
I feel like the wow numbers are always way off, they had over 12 million subscribed per month at one point, total sales must be well over 100 million considering that the game is still going strong after all these years. Wow and call of duty were the two franchises that are simply bigger than anything else, but call of duty is diluted from yearly releases.
That video shows what a Next-gen remaster should look like. THe difference is night and day in many of those side by sides, and in the worse case the PS4 version simply looks better. Foliage, Water effects, lighting, shadows, NPC count, depth of field, Anti Aliasing, depth of color, and resolution are all night and day differences. Congrats Rockstar.
Wow Minecraft is @ 3rd, no wonder why Notch retired xD OT: Only played GTA once in my life, waiting for PC release to get into this series xD
34 million people love mediocrity
Lmao. GTAV is hardly mediocre. Looks like you just have poor taste in games.
Yeah seriously, i never much cared for gta series, but i even get lost in all the awesomeness in gtav, submarine! Tennis! Cars? Sky diving?!! I mean and it all looks and plays good?! Wizzards, anyone who can't appreciate this blind and/or ignorant
Anything GT game after SA is mediocre.
No taste is poor taste. Opinions are opinions. That said, he's obviously looking for no more than an argument here. With that, Skankinruby . . . hush up! Nobody cares about your internet "hard-assery".
That was GTA4, they done good here you can drive round a corner now, joking aside 5 is a fantastic achievement if the main Man Hideo Kojima is saying so you know this is solid gold. I always felt 4 was lacking something but what ive played of GTA5 (around the first 60%) it's been fantastic glad I held off the on the rest so that I can all out binge on next gen GTA5 in 1080p on ps4's Innit ;)
if you think GTA is mediocre then you might as well give up gaming as its like one of the best franchises out there. most games i can't even finish but the GTA games i play for months if not years as they are fun to mess aroundin. one of the few franchises that actually deserves its success.
Tetris, Mario and wii sports were bundled games and shouldn't count
That's a lot of copies! I wonder how many 6 will sell.
How many hours can one sink into GTA 5? :o
I have 14+ DAYS, playing with friends... ...god, I need a life
I'll be getting the PS4 version eventually. I missed it on last gen.
Add to that 5 million from X1 and PS4 + 100.000 on PC (excluding torrents obviously)
and with current gen and PC release , it will beat super mario bros :D
