Which means, for them to break the first record of 3 on 1, they need to have a 4th console for GTAV to be on. PS6 version confirmed for Fall of 2026.

With the PS5/XSX releases this game could easily go above 200m lol.

So is up 5 million units from last update, right?

Wouldn’t be too bold to say that the PS4 version could be around 40-50 million units by now?

You really think it could be that high? Wouldn't that be near a 50% attach rate to the console install base? Makes you wonder why Sony didn't just make a deal with Take-Two and start packing in GTA V with every PS4 like Wii Sports & Wii came back in the day lol

PS3 - 20mil
X360 - 20mil
PS4 - 40mil
XONE - 15mil
PC - 60mil

Do a little research and you will see ps3 version sold over 29m. There was no way ps3 version didnt sell more than the 360 version since ps3 had advertisement rights
