 GTA V Sales Surpass $1 Billion In First Three Days - briefly
(hx) 03:29 AM EDT - Sep,21 2013
Take Two Interactive, which publishes Rockstar Games' hugely successful Grand Theft Auto franchise, announced on Friday that sales of Grand Theft Auto V have generated $1 billion in revenue in just three days, making it the fastest game in history to reach the $1 billion milestone.
Take-Two Interactive Software today announced that Grand Theft Auto V, the critically acclaimed latest release from the iconic interactive entertainment series, has achieved worldwide retail sales of more than $1 billion during its first three days on sale, according to Company estimates. We believe this marks the fastest that any entertainment property, including video games and feature films, has reached this significant milestone.

"Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon and Rockstar Games continues to redefine what can be achieved in interactive entertainment," said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two. "We are incredibly proud of the extraordinary critical and commercial response to Grand Theft Auto V."

Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V is currently available for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

And it rocks! No wonder when you realise how much is in this game, it's fucking MONSTROUS!! Bought the strategy guide to see the size of this! Played for about 10hrs and not even got out of Los Santos. The guns and car customisation alone is worth it. The characters are truly mental, and chop the dog is just... Priceless. Can't wait for the fruit app on android though.
Nothing on PC touches this. The games industry has just had its ass kicked.
I hope watchdogs is going to live up to the hype? By god it better. Otherwise it's going to be.... Well sad.

They will? Considering both X360/PS5 is 10+ year old tech.. Any ~$1500 PC would kick this mutha out the window + make you money so... Bring it to the XBONE or PS4 then we'll talk.. that would be impressive but it took frack'n 10 years! GAHHH!!

They may be, but boy does it play like silk. Take a look at the post I made about GTAIV on PC? It still plays like a bag of spanners on modern spec PCs. So unless GTAV is fully optimised for PC it won't play better than an optimised version on any modern PC regardless of the cost.

That is of course up to lazy devs if they wish to tweak their product for X platform. Its always been this way since the beginning. Non-optimized code is NOT the fault of the user and to force faster h/w to be used to make X game run better is pure and utter BS which we've been used to in the PC industry for decades.

Ironically, older hardware has tended to play certain games better than newer. It's also down to a change in the industry, as we know. Look at the fiasco that is RTW 2? That isn't even on a console yet it still isn't optimised after many years in dev. There is clearly budgets laid on for the PC probably due to the fact it has lower returns than a console. But I would like to hear that from an actual dev than many that think they know.
170 million budget for GTAV and it has returned in three days 500 million. It's just so obvious why any manufacturer or developers go for the quickest returns. I would and so would you if that was the job you were given between console and PC. Hardly any follow up and no endless late nights on console versions, probably unpaid as well, to get a PC version patched up as budgets are stretched.
The industry has changed and it's a fact of life we own everything we want in our households. We don't cut our nose off to spite our faces, if something we want is on a console only we buy it. Then we have everything released and we're happy bunnies!

Hahaha, funny coming from Mr. Upgrade. Seriously, how the F would you know. Total BS though, its more the drivers for the "older" hardware are better than likely current hardware. I've never seen nor tested or seen an older card run something better than a modern card. But I'm sure Mr. Tech buff has. :roll:

Speaking for 'yourself' only. I am patient, while I own a shit PS3, I rather wait and get GTAV on PC.
