10 million seller! They probably hit this a while ago with digital sales, but it's great to see GTAIV get it done. It's the 6th game to join the 10 million club and the only third person open world game in the list. I'm sure Rockstar is excited for a new GTA.

What you fail to understand Vgcgamer, is that install base was way too low for this game to outsell San Andreas at this point. The install base was around 30 million when it was released and it is only around 35 million now.

For GTA4 to outsell it, it would have had to have over a 50% attach rate. No non-bundled game has, or ever will ever achieve that.

San Andreas sold 17 million on PS2, but has an attach rate of only 6%. It has also been selling for 4 years and had the advantage of being with the highest selling console in history.

GTA4 sold over 10 million on 35 million consoles - an attach rate of around 30%. That rate is more then any non-bundled game full priced game in history. It is almost impossible to get better then that.

If this game was released on an install base the size of the PS2's it would have crushed the sales of San Andreas.

As for the quality of San Andreas - It was highly recieved by reviewers as well, but it had more then it's fair share of complaints from fans about all the useless girlfriend, training, huge open areas, weak storyline, being way too big and plain and more.

These are the facts. Deal with them.

Wow VGC, you make no sense whatsoever. First you bash it for not having enough sold despite only having what is at the time less than 30 mil userbase versus according to you 78 mil. And now you are whining the game isnt that great and somehow this has something to do with sales.

vgcgamer posted 15/08/2008, 04:16
My point egghead, is that GTA IV is not the be all and end all like many claim.

While it is true that SA was released during the holiday season and the PS2 had a bigger base (roughly 78M at the time - not 100M or 125M), look at all the advantages IV has had (long time to hype the game, new game engine, Euphoria, small PS3 library, etc. I listed below already).

R* could have made a better GTA which could have sold FAR better. It's most certainly far from perfect. In fact, what SA did was even more amazing considering all it's limitations.

VGC, might i ask you, what the heck is your point? The PS2 had a 100 million userbase, PS3/360 userbase is currently only around 35 million, it doesnt take a genius to figure out thats WELL bellow. Also SA came out during the holiday, a HUGE factor.

vgcgamer posted 12/08/2008, 01:29
San Andreas on the PS2 single-handedly downplayed GTA IV on 360 and PS3 COMBINED. Have a peek at the numbers in case you need a refresher (10.73M of SA on PS2 > 9.67M of GTA IV on 360/PS3 through the first 10 weeks).

It will take a very long time for GTA IV to catch up to San Andreas at the rate of current gen console hardware sales (weak compared to PS2, esp. PS3) if it ever does (21.5M units through March 2008). A new console will be out before it reaches this number.

Nobody says its perfect. But its still one of the best games I played this year and its definitely the best game ever with a single-player play time of at least 30h.

Kyros,
There's nothing to "downtalk". The numbers speak for themselves. However, if you objectively compare the this GTA vs. previous versions (like SA) then you will see it ain't "all that". Fanboys making GTA IV out to be the Holy Grail is what is truly weird. GTA IV is far from perfect and leaves a lot of room for improvement.

You are weird. Trying to downtalk a game that has 9.8m copies sold after 3 months. By far the best selling game (thats not a freebie with a controller etc.) so far this gen. On a combined userbase of 35m consoles.

Is this compulsive? Because it sounds a bit deranged.

The reality is things fluctuate from generation to generation. GTA IV wont reach SA levels most likely but that doesn't mean it isn't selling very well. Combined its sold 9.77 million copies. With 5 months left in the year, which includes the christmas season, GTA IV should do a few million more in sales. Maybe thats not as good as last gen but its still a lot.

vgcgamer posted 18/07/2008, 05:35
Hey guys, I think you are conveniently missing several key points too.

1) We're talking about 1 system (the PS2) vs. 2 (the UBER PS3 and the UBER 360 - two VASTLY superior systems by any measure...right???).

2) The LONG, long wait only gave R* even more opportunity to hype they game, which they did.

3) OVERHYPED/OVERRATED reviews only helped GTA IV. In reality, there is a lot of room for improvement. It was NOT perfect.

4) VERY small game libraries by comparison for 360 and the PS3 especially. This means less competition for gamers' money.

5) Releasing in April when hardly many other big-name games were coming out. HUGE advantage for GTA IV.

6) San Andreas was merely another GTA game running on the GTA III engine. Conversely, GTA IV was a quantum leap in graphics with euphoria and so on, being based on a NEW, VASTLY superior RAGE engine.

7) Can someone remind me how much it cost to develop this game? I think I about died the first time I heard the figure. Oh, and look up the cost to develop SA while you're at it.

Enough said.

Get a dose of reality people and quit writing like you have the brains of 12 year olds. Think.

It's official. San Andreas has just passed GTA IV in sales through week 8 (9.51M vs. 9.43M on 360 and PS3 combined!!!). Awesome for SA considering SA was 1) Last gen (poor graphics/no euphoria and on and on), 2) only launched on 1 system, and 3) didn't have near as much hype. The people have spoken. I knew this would happen.
