    Holy cow on the freaking barbecue this is CRAZY.

    Roughly translated edition of the source:

    Source(keep in mind that it is in Dutch!): http://www.gamer.nl/nieuws/432937/gta-5-haalt-binnen-24-uur-800-miljoen-dollar-op

    What do you think about this? Are you one of the proud owners of the game? I will be getting the game tomorrow! ^_^

    Edit: here's an English source: http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2013...ft_auto_v_coined_over_usd800_million_in_a_day

    This migth be the most overrated game ever made... EVER! I mean it's a good game and I'm gonna get it too, but it can't be THAT good.

    Anyway, where are you going to buy it? I'm from NL too and I was told it was sold-out everywhere... :sad:

    I'm not on the GTA wave.
    But I live in the hoodrat areas of london where it seems to be like the greatest thing ever.

    Overrated and sales numbers are mutually exclusive :huh:

    I'm looking forward to a PC version. In the meantime, I'm gonna try and finally finish GTA IV and start the DLC. The game already looks amazing with mods :D

    yeah... don't believe this.

    that much only on PS3 and Xbox360? nop.... not buying it. It's obvious PR talk in order to make people more interested in the game.

    That's another thing. It ONLY came out for the ps3/xbox and it got these kinds of numbers... This hype is getting kinda annoying! I mean when I'm watching TV I get a GTA V commercial every 2 minutes. There's one going on now as I'm typing this sentence :angry:

    i got it for free from best buy and promptly sold it on ebay.
    no stores near me are out of stock.
    literally everyone i know who owns a ps3 or xbox360 bought it though so i believe the numbers.
    i'll get it if it comes to wiiu, or maybe eventually if it comes to xboxone.

    That's COD.

    COD gets more commercials imho (even tho I hardly watch telly these days)



    Sweet.
    When thet revealed that it would be in San Andreas again I was kinda skeptical.
    Then they announced the 3 protagonists system, which made me doubt about how it would go.

    I have to say that GTA 5 is pretty much GTA SA in HD.
    Well worth the 800 million it got in the first 24 hours!

    Like I said it's good and I personally really enjoy the games. I understand that I should be okay with a game I enjoy getting some attention, but this much attention is just... stupid. I mean there are lots of other very good games I like not getting the attention they deserve. So yeah I guess I just think it's unfair.
    Well, GTA V is said to break COD's record soon. I enjoyed COD a lot too but like GTA I think it's overrated.

    That's cause Rockstar is a mega company, just like the developers of COD.
    If you look at Okami, one of the best games ever made, it hardly got any attention at all, yet it still managed to rank extremely high with reviewers (even tho they give COD a 10/10 cause it's "innovative" with AI in fish)


    Last major GTA came out in 2008 (GTA 4 if you don't count CTW)
    COD gets a new installment every year?

    Definitely play the DLC, it's much better than the maingame IMHO. The Ballad of Gay Tony was the best part of the game really, those guys/missions were just epic!

    On topic, if true, AWESOME. Fully deserved IMHO and good God, I hope they release this on PC!

    What the f***? I doubt this'll make it the GOTG, though. And check this out, courtesy of Google Translate. "Grand Theft Auto 5 is the new standard for creativity, innovation and uitmundenheid within the entertainment industry."

    Game is good. Spawns haters.
    Game sells amazingly. "MOST OVERRATED GAME EVAR!"

    Stay classy.
