  1. Grand Theft Auto 5 has been by far the biggest game launch of the year, captivating Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers since its release last month. The launch was so huge for publisher Rockstar Games that it managed to...

    I am pretty sure it will shatter some more records when it hits PC.

    CoD always has a sheep following no matter what they release even if its just a blank disk people would still buy it.

    I have to say, I only dislike the end of this article, other than that its great.

    If people still buy Call of Duty after Infinity Ward has just clicked copy and paste 2 times in a row now, then theres something wrong here. Based off user reactions, to MW3, im hoping people will not buy this game until reviews showing if there was some actual effort put in surface.

    The Thing is, CoD has some serious competition, Rockstar hasn't, you can argue some other games like saint's row is a competitor but it's not really same.

    If CoD beats any of these records with their clever "A.I. Fish" I will be absolutely astounded...

    The game looks awesome, but I'm rather disappointed in R*. Even pathetic EA can manage to release BF series on all three platforms. You'd think a big dog like R* would also be able to. I hope they have something solid around the corner because the game will lose its hype and reduce sales potential for a PC release. Hell they may have broken another record or two if they had managed a PC release with the console releases.

    I love all the previous GTA games and Max Payne games, which all had PC releases so I don't see why this one wouldn't.

    Maybe as I have no idea about Starcraft's collection.

    Call of Duty Ghosts will sell big, but not this big.

    Definitely.

    I think if Battlefield 4 was delayed and refined more, it will easily be able to sell out CoD. I am not sure that BF4 at the stage it is now will outsell CoD.

    Surely the only way CoD has a chance of beating these records is because it's open to other platforms on Day 1? As people have said, if GTA was released on PC too, it would have done even better. Probably about 2 days for the $1 billion mark or something silly.

    Maybe, but I know many people who used to be avid CoD players who say they refuse to buy this version of the game until after seeing some people talk about it because of how much of a jip MW3 was. I really hope rockstar keeps these records, they really deserve it because of how much work and care they put into each and every game.
