I don't think CoD can even do that and is the most popular game right now. So no.

Miiikeyyy3096d ago

There's a diffence, The COD franchise is SHIT. GTA franchise is awesome, Although GTA 4 was kinda lame.

user83971443096d ago

Oh I agree, especially GTA San Andreas and Vice City were the best. But not even on the PS2 which it had more hardware out there than PS3 and 360 combined.

Call of Duty: Black Ops' sales hit 25 million

If its going to involve repetative missions and limited freedom then make that $24,999,940

You can disagree all you want but GTA 4 was a bore fest compared to previus GTA games.

I didn't own a PS2 or an XBOX last gen (was a PC MMO player), But I thoroughly enjoyed GTA 4 and I still play it online today. The GTA RACE reminds me of ROAD RASH from the Genesis days. :)


You should really check out Vice City and San Andres.

They might feel outdated because so much time have passed but the freedom that youm get is what makes those games special

My pro analysis: GTA V could sell over 9000.

Limited weapons to choose from
Limited interation with the world
Limited buildings to go into
Limited side missions
Limited charater customization
No single player co-op

My "pro-analysis": It won't sell as fast as GTA IV.

Two reasons: 1. While SanAn was a huge hit, GTAIV left a whole lot of people disappointed. Thus more people on the fence and and slower sales than before.
2. The disappointment around GTAIV left less (almost no) *buzz* afterwards than SanAn. Therefore less adoption of new gamers.

It all amounts to fewer buyers than before.

That might be true at the beginning of it's release, but if they go back to SA formula, sales should skyrocket after the word gets around.

k2d3096d ago

-IF- they find back to the SA formula, and that's a BIG "if". There's alot more games out this time around for people to choose from. A bad impression from last time will probably hold a lot of potential buyers in their reins for reviews and such.
