Take Two is happy with GTA V PC Sales

You're welcome. Next time, don't wait 2 years to release a GTA game for PC.

I just find it funny that on one hand PC sales are great and and have exceeded expectations, but on the other hand, piracy is rampant and has made the PC market something to be avoided. And to add insult to injury, for a company that made $1.669 billion--again, billion--dollars last year, why do I have to be punished with "periodic phone home" DRM preventing me from playing the game completely offline? (rhetorical question)

They burned a lot of community equity with GTA V for the heists and PC stuff.

 

Hopefully they don't pull the same sh*t with VI.

This is good but it's not surprising, the pc version has added 3-4 million sales to the already and much more impressive numbers thanks to the console sales.

It's what they deserve for not doing a half assed job. Good job, congrats rockstar. Please continue the effort.

Assuming what they said is true about delaying to polish the game (I don't believe them entirely, but it most certainly had something to do with the delays) would you rather have a rushed port shortly after the peasant releases, or a properly done version a while later with a wealth of options and improved optimization? I look at GTAIV performance and compare it to how GTAV has been for me in 150 hours (pretty much flawless), and suddenly I'm not as bothered by the 1 1/2 year wait, even if it likely was partly to milk the console versions for all their worth beforehand.

I really want to know the sales figure of only the Pc version. They mentioned 52 million units on the console and PC combined.

Nearly 2.3 million own the game on Steam according to SteamSpy. Not entirely accurate of course as it does not count those who play the Social Club version.

Rockstar's got a way of making some people buy the game 3 times. I wouldn't be surprised if they wipe their asses with $100 bills.

I got Call of Duty 4 off the torrents, played it a bit, decided I liked it and bought it for the multiplayer. Have I not have gotten it from a torrent I would have never bought it.

 

Not saying piracy is good or excusable, but not all pirates are lost revenue or potential revenue. I fully agree with the DRM comments though - there was a case where legit buyers were having more problems with their legit games than pirated ones, but forgot which game was it.

great. now they think it's acceptable to wait 2 years before bringing a game to PC. most likely will do it again.

 

their plan worked. they successfully got people to not only buy the game but double and triple dip.

 

can't wait for GTA VI :whistle:

I'm not sure whether VGChartz is a reliable site or not, but if we take their numbers, GTA V has sold nearly 44 millions on all the consoles combined as of 28th March, 2015. So I'm assuming the game sold 6-8 millions on PC.

"Fiscal 2016 is off to a great start, highlighted by the April launch of Grand Theft Auto V for the PC, which has exceeded our expectations."

 

Fantastic! ...now start fixing the boatload of bugs and graphical issues; you know, the ones that actually affect gameplay!

I agree, but unfortunately, "never change a winning strategy" is the only one important thing. They don't care about their "gaming community" or their true fans, only revenue and profits care, because it's a company with (lazy) shareholders (GTA V and specially Online is the perfect example...).

 

Shareholers are lazy and cowards (without skills, without real intelligence but just with money since they are born) people who want make money without work (and after that, when they support a f*cking lazy politician, they said "People need to work! The laziness is the cancer of the company huh.. society!").

It's the same thing with "kids" (immature people, and then kids in a adult body), who want kills in GTA Online, without to be killed (with their armored cars in free roam), and after that who play bosses on the forum saying :"go play in passive mode", and insult everyone of "n00bz and c0wardz" while in reality, they're idiots, cowards and noobs in their armored cars (leaving the place with high speed once "we" are dead because you never know, it might be a bug, "we" could get up and risk to kill them)...

 

The only good news: GTA VI will be released on PC... but the question is "when" (after or in the same time than Consoles version).

In fact Rockstar Games & Take2Interactive will change of strategy only (and only) IF the PC market had to be more interesting than the console market in the near future (in terms of revenue and profits).

Clearly, that will means that PC gamers became good milk cows, ready to flamb between 80 and 200 €|$ for a game (even if the gameplay is made with a console sauce from console level designers).

 

But for me i'm ok, i don't care anymore, unfortunately GTA V will be probably my last GTA game.

Fan (and modder since GTA SA) of the first hours with GTA 1 (and GTA London) & GTA 2 (revolutionary games in their time), GTA 3, GTA SA and GTA VC (really new technologies, new kind of gameplay and new immersion level in this time), and GTA IV (more "limited" in term of gameplay unfortunately and very unoptimized in the beginning but with a smart story, the high immersion, the "life" before/over/and after the story (on PC), the atmosphere were very great and then was the summum of the GTA series .

 

GTA V is a Killer (in the bad way) of the GTA serie.

GTA V/Online is a "remake" of successful games including GTA SA for the general gameplay, TDU2 for the online (races, largest maps (with the complete Ibiza and Hawai islands) garage, apartments, cars, cheats) and race editor/creator (the online was killed by the Casino, I hope rockstar doesn't made this error), Micromania I for the editor race, Replay/video editor and the physic car (jumps & ramps), Saint Rows II & III for the funny side with this unrealistic but funny Ragdoll-like (where in this time, Rockstar make fun towards Volition saying that SR was just buggy and the fun wasn't expected... and Rockstar Games (T2) made the same thing many years later.... because SR2 had more gamers than GTA IV at the beginning. Only Mods in GTA IV allowed to prolong the longevity of the game and to "keep" the players (and even to bring other new players/buyers)), Scarface (3 characters), etc... and these f*cking Sims....

Only Tennis and Golf are really news (in this kind of game), but obviously totally buggy in online (Rockstar doesn't care because kids don't like tennis and golf, they want just virtual money (paid with real money), guns, the power to be an asshole and get a good ratio..... and an armored cars to kill people without to be killed.... and after that they come here to play bosses on the forum to say : "go in passive mode nOObz", while they are the real cowards and noobs, and they should play in "passive mode" if they scared to be killed (oh yes... sorry... it's true, they want "easy" kills too... typical from small dicks and eternal noobs.....).

 

 

Every GTA was really beautiful in their times, well designed for their times... GTA V just have a "sky"with flat clouds and a f*cking sky dome ("clouds in circle") like games from 2000-2008 (the only one thing why people find the game beautifull... all snapmatics (even those introduced as "professionals") are about the orange, purple and yellow sky... However the 3D models (Very greedy with low poly everywhere again.... while other companies release very greedy Hi-poly games....) isn't much developed than GTA IV.... It's so flat (3D models) everywhere (with very good textures only on the parts which for example shouldn't be "flat" and give the impression of details) ....amazing.....

GTA Online, in 2013-2015, 100% (old) P2P ... incredible... Rockstar needs to learn a lot for PC (for a company saying everywhere since MP3, they "learn a lot for the future of the PC gaming" .......).

This the result from a company staying focused only on the console market (and console technology) only, without keep an eye on the news technologies and the progress => A 2011 game released in 2015 on PC as it is currently while it use some obsolete technologies from "consoles" for PC (In this case you can spend many times to optimize a game, but finally, the game will never be optimized because these obsoletes choices and technologies (and other proprietary technologies unstandardized bullsh*ts) aren't used/handled anymore.... not because it's technical issue, but just because these technologies are obsolete and greedy for nothing).

 

We'll see when Rockstar Games (and then, T2) will talk about GTA VI.

But for now, following this RG & T2 logic, then the worst is coming (for GTA serie, for GTA on PC), seeing the Rockstar behaviour during these 5 years towards the PC players (and GTAV for PC), and the final result of GTA V / Online (the problem isn't GTA V finally, it's clearly not the better game of the serie, and clearly not the most beautiful game compared to many games of these 4 last years), but specially the Online is totally sh*ty, GTAO have a big potential, but killed for the pleasure of the kids (not even in age to play to this game initially.....).

 

Ok kids (and trolls, and other fake fans of GTA Series, but only fan of GTA Online....), you can lynch me now ...

GTA V was made for console (gameplay and small story, because majority of console players doesn't care about story, specially if this story is more than 20hours of gaming....), and GTA Online was made for "you", for kids, for immature people, for idiots unable to win without shark cards and armored vehicles, with no patience, where the assholes and kids (or kids in a adult body, for the majority unfortunately) can be "strong".

It's very difficult to play in GTA Online. The gameplay is so easy for the pleasure of console players who want just to push one button for 10 simultaneous actions, and not to have to use their brains, they want read the instructions on the screen (it's funny, because they'are unable to read the instructions, it's annoying to read, while there is a forum to ask "how can i jump ?", "where is the building for the X mission, can i follow the yellow point ?"....), but it's just difficult to play to (find in) GTA Online with decent people, with smart behaviour (doesn't mean you can't have fun or make fun, in contrary... but only have fun respecting others to have some good shared funs, and with respect of the Los Santos World (the f*cking immersion!) instead to confuse GTA Online with BF4 or payday (game for kids where everyone rush like a moron), nor with the old and cult Carmageddon or the recent failed remake!).

 

And for the idiots and (unpaid) trolls: The biggest revenue and profits doesn't means "better game". It's the best game only for shareholders or idiots unable to see the difference between "revenue" (while 80% of gamers bought the game in pre-order without to know the game/gameplay) and "Good/Bad game" by the design, gameplay, story, online/solo, technologies.... .

Rockstar Games (T2) have paid very much to get these successful sales: $180 millions just for the advertising and lobbying (sponsored in part by (PS3/PS4) Sony and Microsoft (360/ONE))... it's a record too...

It means influenced people by the advertising (bad or good, it's doesn't matter, this makes sales, everyone knows, even the politicians have understood it since the last 20 years now) buy a game only because "people" talk about it, kids buy it only because it's prohibited and can do some forbidden things (by their parents)... they think to be adult when they play to GTA V Online... and they can play "bosses" in the schoolyards saying "LOL n00bs, I play to GTA, f*ck my parents, i'm playing to GTA V Online... i'm not a kid LOL LOL LOL... it's so funny, i kill everyone, i'm a super boss on GTA... I took my Mom's credit card to buy shark cards, it's was so funny.. and last time, there are some old men on GTA who killed me and blown up my car.... LOL LOL it was so funny when they was punished for bad sport.... Hahaha i'm a super boss, a big boy on GTA!!"

Buy a game twice/thrice doesn't mean this buyer is a fan, but just: "he is a fanatic buyer, a compulsive buyer" or "kid with dad & mom's money" (loved by these kind of companies of course), ready to buy, buy, buy everything when the manufacturer/company tell him/her (and idiot enough to believe them): "you're so smart" (idiocracy time).

Then, there is no reason to change their strategy for now ....

2018: GTA VI announcement

2020: GTA VI PS4 and Xbox One release

2024: GTA VI PS5 and Xbox Zero release

2030 (=In a few weeks or so): GTA VI PC release (eventually)

 

Seems legit.

If they won`t fix the PC issues and release the next GTA for PC later than consoles sales won`t be as high...

GTA 5 sales were around 40 million for PS3 & X360. Then in February R* reported of 45 mil meaning that PS4 & XOne gained almost 5 million. And now they have 52 million - So around 7 million has been sold on PC.

 

PC alone outsold both new consoles.

Which is why we got it last. It would've outsold the old-gen console versions too, significantly reducing overall profits.

It just proves that if you put out a quality product people will buy it... hell, some indie devs have little to no drm and make a killing.

1. Yes, I'd rather play PS3 port 1.5 years ago. Why? Because PS3 version already looked marvellous. And because they'd update PC version with PS4 release (just like Sleeping Dogs and Saints Row 4).

2. Install base for new gen is not so big enough and most NG copies were sold around winter. So 6 million is safe # for PC sales.

Sometimes I like browsing around old forums, from the early to mid 2000s and reading their expectations regarding the future of things, such as GTA. Now I hope GTAForums.com is still alive in 2030 and people are reading this. :p

I would say they wouldn't lol. For a company always for profits, this is already marvelous.
