Alright, now I haven’t personally played this game yet but I have a relative in the house hold who currently owns it. I don’t plan on getting this game until maybe the beginning of the month, but anyways.
I was on Twitter and Grand Theft Auto V was trending, of course. I click on it’s trend and a link pops up from IGN that says Grand Theft Auto reached the $1 billion mark in three days. Do you realize how many people that is?
At about $65 a game, around $100 for the collectors edition, that’s a lot of people who are currently enjoying one of the hottest games of the decade. Yes I said one of the hottest games of the decade, but not the highest grossed game out there.
World of Warcraft brought in a whopping $10 billion back in 2004 with Call of Duty: Black Ops bringing in $1.5 billion in total sales. Now with Grand Theft Auto reaching just $1 billion in just three days, the holiday’s aren’t even here yet!
Now with these kinds of sales, you have to think that the makers of this popular video game are thinking about releasing it for PC sometime later on this year. Imagine the numbers they could have by the end of 2013. They could easily surpass World of Warcraft and Call of Duty.
World of Warcraft has sold over 10 million copies of the game but if I can remember correctly, they also charge monthly for the game.
With games like Assassins Creed: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Watchdogs yet to be released for both PS3 and XBox 360, sales should continue to rise for GTA V when Playstation 4 and XBox One releases.
With early sales numbers like these, it’s tempting for me to go and check the game out for myself.
