Not a surprise after 800 million in 24 hours.

That's quite impressive, considering that Take-Two expected the game to sell 18 million copies in the first year. Given that they expected $1.75-1.85 billion until March 31st 2014, and 65% of it alone from Rockstar Games, it means they expected around 1.2 billion dollar from Rockstar with GTAV and catalog games. They made almost all of that in three days now! God knows how much money they will earn until March. All I know is it will be far more than they initially expected, and it's definitely well deserved.

I'm still laughing at the people that said it won't break CoD's records. :lol:

Black Ops 2 grossed $500m in the first day and needed 15 days to reach $1 billion. GTA V did $800m in the first day and needed only 3 days to reach $1 billion. Yep.


The king is finally back. :cool:

F*ck you COD...Its sad the idiots that buy your rehashed game every year.  You have released the same game every year for 6 yrs with no changes.  I hope there are no more CODs.

I think he means it doesn't impress him due to the type of game it is, a big AAA title with potential. I can see how big mobile sales can be more "interesting", they're surprisingly high.

As soon as I heard R* earned 800 million on first day of sales, I knew they would reach 1 billion in no time. It has finally come. Congratulations Rockstar.

 

This was only on two platforms and not even released in some parts of the world yet like Japan, though maybe those markets aren't as big. But still this is something R* and its team members should be proud of.

Man, just think how much more they'll make with the PC versions and the release is Japan, not to mention that a lot of kids will probably get it for christmas too. It's crazy to think they made this much on only two platforms, just shows how much people love GTA, if there's anyone that deserves this, it's definietly Rockstar.

1 USA billion is not an european billion, don't use misunderstand words.

 

1 european billion / old UK billion = 1.000 millions of millions. 1.000.000.000.000.

 

1 USA billion = 1.000 millions. 1.000.000.000.

Hmm... 1 billion SOUNDS a lot less than 800 million.

Anyway, Rockstar earned it, I never want to get off GTA 5! :O
