Wedbush Morgan's Michael Pachter's estimated that GTA 360 DLC The Ballad of Gay Tony will sell around 3 million units, with the PSP version of Chinatown Wars settling in the 1 million unit region.
gta 4 has made so much money for rockstar. imagine if they released the DLC on all systems.
There is still a possibility that the first two will appear on the PS3. MS will want to get their invested money back once they get it Rockstar will release it on PS3 for profits without giving a majority of it to MS.
The first 2 DLC wont be released on the PS3 but if the rumors are correct, 2 additional DLC episodes will be released to all platforms. Take-Two has stated there are still more stories to be told in the GTAIV universe.
I was about to question why he thinks this will sell more but then read the comments at the article and found out why. I didn't know this would be getting a disc release with TLTD included. That'll definitely increase sells. I still wonder how the title itself will effect sells because I know a few gay people that would buy this just to have it up somewhere and not even own a 360. And on the other end the homophobic that will avoid it at all cost. How many copies of GTA sold on the 360 anyway? Do you have to have the GTAIV to play this (like an expansion) or is it its own title altogether?
shoot me for saying so but i really didn't get much out of gtaiv, i have it on pc and even with the graphics cranked up, from the first scenes i thought i looked like crap, and they took away the rpg elements like getting better at driving/shooting etc, and i hated the car sensitivity, if i wanted to get frustrated with rally car like handling i'd play a rally game
It reckon Chinatown Wars PSP might actually do about 2 Million, or potentially even more. I personally feel that Bioshock 2 is going to be absolute garbage so I'm going to avoid it until I've read lots and lots of reviews.
I can't for the life of me understand this obsession with adding multi-player to EVERYTHING nowadays either. Especially what are essentially cinematic, single-player utterly narrative driven games (like Bioshock). It's not as if we have a dearth of multi-player, online shooters to chose from. I don't see the point. And if it's about adding 'value', I'd still rather just have a brilliant, polished single player game - possibly - arriving in my hands faster by way of resources that would otherwise be spent on a multi-player component. It's hard enough to make mult-plat games decent without adding further complications to the mix. I wasn't surpised at all when BS 2 was delayed.
yeah i'm more disappointed about max payne 3 ... i cant believe it man .. really wanted to play that this year
I'm glad Max Payne 3 got pushed back. It looked rushed. I also want to play it, but I want to play a _good_ Max Payne 3, not one that really didn't take the time needed to properly mold the gameplay.
i think 5 yrs is a pretty long time to wait... i mean dont get me wrong a max payne game is definitely worth the wait ... but damn i want that game like RIGHT NOW !!
5 years since the last game, but not 5 years in development. They need more development time to make it a good Max Payne game. If they didn't take this time, wouldn't you lose respect for them for rushing out a poor quality game?
I mean pretty much whatever he predicts never happens, unless I'm mistaken.
What's this Weeks Lottery Numbers
wow i want to smoke what hes smoking
but I still wouldnt make as many stupid and vague predictions as this guy. Just based on the amount of predictions this guy makes, he should get some right. Does he? I really dont know. edit-- I cant wait for the NPD so I can read patcher's evident analysis.
actually its a very smart move from rockstar on releasing both dlc's through retail that too all on a single disc... you can bet your a** that combo will sell
I belive Pather i believe...... http://img1.jurko.net/wall/...
3 million? Has there even been an official release of the numbers that Lost and Damned did? From either MS or R*? I'm not trying to flame, but if those numbers for that DLC (which was pretty good, btw) aren't near 3 million, I don't see how the second DLC will hit that.
see the only major difference here is that the last one (TLAD) was download ONLY... this time its going online and at retail ... which means .. balad of gay tony and lost and damned will be relased in a single dvd disc .. no gta 4 req to play... it'll be sold like a separate game ... expect some gta stories bundles from ms as well...
they never said hwo much the lost and damned sold that leads me to suspect that the numbers wasn't that great you know how MS is, when they sell alot of a product they brag about it for the rest of the month
well because both Ep's will be one disc selling for 40 bucks its bein sold like its own game
I say if Gay Tony doesn't sell as well, Pachter has to quit his job.
2 million? got a source for that because no where did I read that it stopped at around 1 million sales and that's the last I read for it and we all know how much M$ loves to gloat about there sales. http://www.n4g.com/industry... and if this is your source it states that it SHOULD sell 2 million. "Rockstar's exclusive GTA IV content for Xbox 360 – The Lost and the Damned – has sold one million so far, and is likely to reach two million downloads by the end of the year. That's according to analyst Michael Pachter, who said the second GTA IV episode for Xbox 360 is likely to arrive by November following the close of the company's October 31 fiscal year" .
According to this article. http://www.totalvideogames.... We'll never know the actual sales numbers from any other site unless Microsoft publishes the numbers first.
the disc version will sell couple of million because its bein sold as own spin-off and MS will market the heck out of it
Yea I'm getting the disc version with Lost and Damned and Ballad of Tony Gay on it. It will do will with a real SKU and as long as MS advertises so people know about it.
meh, next time I'll remember to put in "supposedly" next time. If there is next time. Frankly I'm sick and tired about having to think and comment about a game I'm not interested in, but have to because some idiot keeps bringing it up. So for pointlessness sake I'll repeat: if the Gay Tony doesn't sell 3X as much as L&D, Pachter need to quit his job. Be reminded of the and other statements until he quits. Goobye, I'm done with this.
become a game guru. All I've see is a bunch of guess that came out wrong from this guy. But some retard continues to submit his stories. And it gets approved! There's like 2 or 3 stories on the front page about Pachter guessing on this and that and he's never right! sigh
...of being waaaay off!
someone is pointing a gun at his head to say this stuff kuz ive been hearin alot from him lately
All Xbros are gay? http://img.photobucket.com/...
THIS amount of sales is the reason so many devs want to work on 360 and why sony have lost many exclusives to MS and big companys like activision consider dropping support.3mill is amazing for a download only game and doubles killzone2 sales figures nuf said
