    GTA V - the most expensive production in VG history

    Based on a report from Scottish newspaper The Scotsman, Rockstar’s upcoming open-world game Grand Theft Auto V was made on a marketing and development budget of £170 million (or $265 million). This makes it the most expensive video game production in history.

    With over 2.5 million pre-orders already in just the US, analysts are expecting it to be one of the most-sold games of this console generation.

    Grand Theft Auto V is the most expensive video game production in history, beats most big-budget Hollywood films

    It looks like every penny was well spent . The game is going to make a shit ton of cash, I will buy it brand new on day one, something I have not done all year, I want to make sure and support this game, hell even the DLC in a GTA title is worth the dosh .

    I think with the rumored PS4 and eventual release on PC this game will smash a few records, it will be a great way to say goodbye to the PS3 .

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas = Best selling game for Playstation 2

    Grand Theft Auto V = Best selling game for Playstation 3?

    I wonder although San Andreas was out for 2 years before this gen came out

    The rumours going about why do you have anything official saying its not going to be on PS4, it does not sound that crazy to me .

    edit - its cool, I just saw it was a typo . I bet it gets some kind of release . I am more interested in the PC version anyway, I just got a new rig and its awesome baby .

    As I've said before, until R* themselves say it's coming to next gen it's not coming to next gen. There hasn't been so much as a hint that it will as of yet

    Rockstar has no current plans for GTA V on PS4/Next-gen systems. They've said it, though it CAN change...

    I too am buying just one new game this year ( the rest have been Plus games and rentals ). GTA V is that game, Money invested into the game has been well spent so i would be happy if they make a crap tonne of cash.
    I can't describe how exciting i'm finding this drip feed of news, screens and trailers yet hating every day that it's not here, in my PS3.

    On the PS4 stuff, i'm firmly in the belief that GTA Online will appear next gen but not for a while yet. GTA V itself however, is less likely but not impossible.

    Well didn't some songs in GTA4 cost close to a few grand to get on it? So sure I read that somewhere a long time ago. I'm sure many songs cost them a lot this time too.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    it's also almost the most expensive piece of entertainment ever made if it wasn't for pirates of the carribean 3 movie (which is at 300 mil).

    How much of that is covering the sides of buildings with large advertisements, and how much of that is paying a guy $12 salary to code all the NPC movement?

    Wouldn't it be something if Grand Theft Auto V ultimately turned out to be shite?
