Minutes ago on BBC NEWS 24, There was a small part in the business news featuring R*. They say that they are heading towards making over one billion dollars by the end of the year! That is A LOT in this time frame.

yeah, you really are a little fag. Why can't someone make an Informative thread, without some sh*tty little kid making some ridiculous comment? I found it interesting, and so do others.

And to celebrate the occasion they are giving themselves more free time, by delaying the DLC for the beginning of 2009. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

When you make a popular and successful, not to mention GOOD, product, you reap the rewards.

Or maybe they're going to make it bigger, but cheaper.

 

Who knows?

 

I wish you f*ckers would look for the silver linings, instead of running around with hand fulls of clouds and teary eyes.

Signatures are dumb anyway.

We don't need 4 people to point out the obvious.

Exactly, That's why I barely visit these forums any more.

So, everyone is assuming that 100% of sales pores DIRECTLY into R* pockets? Reatilers sell for free, publisher also does it just for kicks and MS and Sony just sit idly by while the game (they have invested a lot in, especially MS) makes a billion dollars?

 

Doesn't any one see what's wrong with this picture?

Well actually... I listened to Take 2's fiscal year report last night and I can confirm that R* itself will have made a billion out of the franchise by the end of this year.

 

At least that's what I remembered of it. If anyone can confirm this?

For me, make it HEAVY METAL and you got yourself a deal. News on TV is rare and deserves equal mentioned time here, so 'go bugger off you bloody sod'

 

That out of the way, one must not forget the way funds are divided among parties...so not all wil fall to a few people at Rockstar (North) About 250 people work at RN it is believed. Several people were added and helped staff get this game out, so all those complaining are rather heartless about the labor and effort spent to make the game. I respect all that work myself.

It appears you have mistook the post for saying that GTA IV made 1 billion dollars. But the post is about Rockstar making 1 billion dollars, not GTA IV.

It is known that GTA is the cash cow franchise, but you are of course, correct. It will be the sum of their product lines.

Seriously, why would you come here and make a thread out of this crap. What do you want, as the quote so eloquently put it, a freaking medal?

It seems the thread title is "$1,000,000,000 + for R*"... oh no, wait, it doesn't SEEM it IS.

 

 

Minutes ago on BBC NEWS 24, There was a small part in the business news featuring R*. They say that they are heading towards making over one billion dollars by the end of the year! That is A LOT in this time frame.

Where does it say what you are implying?

 

Next time read (you know how to read, do you?) BEFORE you start correcting me. Thanks.

You said "...while the game (they have invested a lot in, especially MS) makes a billion dollars?"

 

And the title says "$1,000,000,000 + for R*" You talked about the billion dollars as if it was from THE GAME, as you said in the above quote. But the title clearly says it was for Rockstar.

Please re-read my post.

So R* made one billion dollars from other games, not only GTA IV? What other game did they sell like the did GTA IV? IMHO GTA made them maybe 200M$ and they sold more then 9 million copies. What other titles are there? That could make them 800M$ in this short time frame?

Well just to be clear, I'm not saying the OP's information is correct/accurate. I was simply trying to help you understand WHAT he was saying. I don't know how Rockstar could make that much money.
