Grand Theft Auto V Ships 80 Million Units


GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a massive success. More than three years after the game's release in 2013, the open-world action game has now passed 80 million units shipped worldwide. This is up from 75 million units back in February. Continued strong sales is no surprise, given GTA V continues to make it onto the top-selling charts in the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

During an conference call after Take-Two's latest earnings report today, CEO Strauss Zelnick said GTA V and GTA Online "outperformed [Take-Two's] expectations during the fourth quarter as they have in every period since they released." GTA Online has been a big winner as well, with the game continuing to see year-over-year growth in recurrent spending. Zelnick said Rockstar is planning "much more" in terms of future updates.

Also during the call, Zelnick praised GTA V for being the "standard bearer for creative excellence" in the video game industry.

I'd like to see how many of those were PC copies. Hopefully it's enough to do near day and date for Red Dead 2.

Sure Rockstar, like the single player DLC that you shit canned, maybe with all the billions GTA V has made you'd think they could spend more than 5 dollars on anti cheat or add some content besides a couple of cars or weapon skins.

How many of those copies were bought during one of the millions of 40%-60% off sales? Damn, there's another on Steam right now. And another in a couple weeks that will likely be even cheaper. Maybe I'll finally get it then...

Goddamit.... I was raving about how much money I'd make off this gaming by buying TTWO stock.... and I did... but for months and months nothing happened and I sold in despair. SINCE THEN THE STOCK IS UP 400%!

And I still haven't been able to play the game because I can't play it around my kids due to all the swearing.

Thanks TTWO you have screwed me in so many ways.

Impatient people shouldn't play the stock market.

I really don't get why this game is as popular as it is. I'm not trying to be an ass by saying that either. The characters are not as fun as people say they are, most of the story is uninteresting, the multiplayer is janky as all hell on PC. I played it to completion , then only picked it up to play multiplayer for a few sessions with friends and then left it ever since.

It's from 2013. It was a technical masterpiece when released for the Xbox360 - all that content stuffed into 2 DVDs. And a lot of fun to play.

I have never finished any of their games. They all get boring as hell and feel like mods of each other.
