    It's a well-known fact that GTA V generates significant revenue for Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar and 2K Games. At the end of May, it was revealed that the game has surpassed 145 million c...

    Does that matter? It's not like its a massive cost to retool the game for a different system.

    Isn't that the point? Lol.. The entire point of the article is that they can maintain the same game for a few generations at minimal cost and gain massive revenue - delaying the release of a new one.

    What this number tells us is that it's seriously immoral to charge the same account/user for every platform separately... X360/PS3/PS4/X1 and PC. And don't forget that they plan to rerelese it once again on PS5 and XSX. This whole situation surrounding GTA5 is like a real-life meme.

    Cannot disagree with the numbers, but what i can detest against, is the whole in game purchase experience which for me has absolutely ruined the franchise.

    Yes alot will disagree but for me, the early days of GTA online without the massive PTP (pay to play) contect was the best times....

    GTA San Andreas was hands down the best GTA for me!

    Haven't played GTA in nearly two years.....

    Calculating average cost of $20 USD per copy its around $3,000,000,000 (3 billion USD) in game sales alone.
    (I used $20 USD as the cost as in some regions it costs less than others, and there has been lots and lots of 50% off sales since it launched as well)

    Wikipedia estimates $6,000,000,000 (6 billion USD) in total revenue.

    If the wiki numbers are accurate, i would say they probably made less in game sales than my estimate, as I am fairly sure that more than 50% of their revenue is from microtransactions, i could be wrong though.

    Wow, thanks!.....$6,000,000,000 (6 billion USD) in total revenue!

    I remember Hilbert (review) saying even though it was late to PC it was a well-polished game when they release it on PC.

    Like it or not Rockstar is that good....Get some!...ubisoft, EA Sports, Capcom, exc,exc

    Good for them I guess. They've found a cash cow. When you do , milk it dry I suppose. what people continue to see in this to keep buying so many copies I don't know lol.
    I haven't played a GTA game since Vice City was new I think. Outside of playing through the SP missions I don't see the appeal. But clearly many do.

    Same here, I had to google what the word liberals meant.. some sort of political thing from the looks of it.

    The crazy thing is that GTA 5 has a more believable world than Cyberpunk, the npc's just seem more real and apart of the world, and the cars drive and feel better.
