Grant Theft Auto Five, one of the biggest gaming releases of the year. Rockstar Games released the game on September 17, 2013 to the follow up of GTA IV in 2008. This very popular and controversial game series is one of the most selling of all time. The game released on the Xbox 360 and PS3 and will possibly in the future be released on PC. The PS4 and Xbox One will take the Christmas shopping season by storm, but leaving this soon to be obsolete game stuck on the last generation consoles.
I see this being a massive problem for sales, a lot of people will be wanting the new consoles. They are much more likely to make the $60 investment of the game if it is released on the new generation consoles. Rockstar spent upwards of $260 million on the production of this game, making it one of the most expensive productions of a game ever. In July, Rockstar Games also released that in there budget reports there was a $61 million loss. The company still predicts that the new installment of the game will outsell its predecessor, which in 5 and a half years sold more than 25 million copies. Only time will tell about this game, and Rockstar Games.
