Amazing

Crazy to think there hasn't even been any massive discounts on the game yet.

Makes me wonder if Rockstar will ever use the GTA money and go back to doing smaller side-dish IP again. I mean, Bully and Midnight Club were good games, and they now have a lot more money to play with than they did back then.

100% deserving of it. I play GTA Online daily, and have done so for over three years. I've bought it three times and spent $60 in GTA Online Shark cards, and that has nowhere near approached the value I've gleaned from it. It's in my top three favourite games of all time and I don't think I'll ever stop playing it.

The world of GTA V is also the most beautiful, well-designed & looking open world ever.

It's my dream game.

Very nice! I need to replay the game, but just haven't had the time between other titles.

Also, this doesn't mean I forgive you for the lack of story DLC Rockstar!

Tens of millions of dollars or My Respect? You have to choose one.

WOW.


and barring a few instances where the price dropped, GTA V on PS4/XB1 is still selling on near-full price.

R* must be rolling in some thick thick dough.

And people wonder why Nintendo hardware bombs. Switch better pray it gets the next GTA. With those kind of numbers, if your hardware can't play the next GTA you might as well not exist.
