While doing a small amount of research I found out that GTA: San Andreas sold 21.5 million copies and GTA: IV sold just above that number of 22 million copies. If you look at it GTA is getting more world wide and the franchise has gotten better and R* has gotten more famous. With what they are saying to be the biggest and most detail game to date I belive that they will sell roughly 25 million copies on all systems.

Your thoughts... And do you guys think they will get more or less #?

AS much as I respect you, no one knows and there is no way to know. This really should be locked until further info is given, not to be an ass.

I'm guessing it will be the most successful GTA game ever and outselling GTA4 by train lengths.

OVER 9000!!!

Naww, but seriously, probably around 30 million copies over the games lifespan on all platforms. I think that only about 10 million copies will be sold opening day bacause alot of the older players of GTA buy it a coupple months after release to wait until the price goes down (I know alot of people who do that).

I concur with this here. I would say over the time that the game is sold in stores, online ect, it can sell between 32-36 million copies.

GTA V will be the best-selling game of all time once its released, It will crush the next call of duty in terms of sales!! I wouldnt be surprised if it sold something like 30-35 millions (life-time sales) It will be break every sales record know to men.. Believe me!

People always forget that Rockstar has officially stated that San Andreas sold 27.5 million copies. GTA IV has sold 22 million copies. This is as of September 2011, and here's my source:
Kotaku

I know, I know. It's rare for someone to actually back up a claim with facts these days. Btw I'm not trying to insult OP. I'm proud that you did any research at all.

I believe GTA V will sell around what San Andreas has sold. I think Rockstar knows that GTA IV was a little too down-to-earth and depressing for most people. They should have included a few Cymbalta pills in every case imo.

That being said, Rockstar has no intent of making the game less realistic. We simply won't have the San Andreas-style zaniness of the past.

What I'm saying is that the balls-to-the-wall fun provided by San Andreas is now being moved aside for what may be a better experience for some, but most folks in their teens or younger will probably enjoy it less. Video games are becoming more popular, however, and that will make up for some lost sales, so my guess is around 27 million lifetime sales.

...And to add, there are several topics about this already, no matter how you slice it, it's clearly speculation, there's no right or wrong guess at present, but it should sell like HOT CAKES

A literal sh*t load. I just felt like typing that.
Nuff said, this topic really lacks appeal, I'd be more interested in the mainstream press covering the news, When it was "trending" it made our local TV news! (the trailer)

Do we really need yet another thread predicting number of copies sold? There was one of these only last week.

if this game is to have the features of gta sa, the graphics and physics of gta iv, and the storyline of ummm well gta sa, then i would say... 33 million.
