@Vatusus:

The chart above said pc software sales are higher than MMO unless you think somehow retail and digital are completely separate but you know your not very smart.

Sorry, I meant MMO + causal games + social networks = casual filth gaming

Grand Theft Auto is a casual game. Heck, every popular console game is.

Console gamers buy games, publishers focus on them. Pc masterrace scratches head as to figure out why. Blames console gamers.

but PC has higher gaming revenue and more quality games.

PC no longer has AAA single player focused games sadly. Publishers wont take the risk due to piracy. The business models working on pc are the ones that have piracy as practically a non issues. This is of course MMO's and casual bejewel games for board housewife.

The only hope pc gaming has for quality core games at the moment is indie titles.

My friend, I wont claim console gaming is "superior" as this is a collage of shitty movie non-games like Assassin Creed and Last Of Us. It also casaulized and ruined the FPS genre. Halo selling well is like boasting about about having a wort on the tip on your nose. It's a bad joke. Pc gaming is still superior, obv. Everyone knows this.

Pirate some more hermit scums, I'm sure you'll save up enough money for your next sli rig soon enough.

Seriously, it's sad to see PC gaming has fallen below even the niche market these days.

The answer seems pretty simple to me. They're going to announce the PC and/or next gen versions of the game near the start of the new fiscal year in order to get a bump/cash infusion while they go back into developer hell for a while coming up with their next big releases.

Or maybe I'm just crazy.

And you don´t think that would be because the game that contributes by far the most for those numbers was GTAV and that wasn´t on the PC?

No wonder you´re one of the village idiots of this place.

So what's the excuse for 2012 financial year? Max Payne 3 was released during that time on all platforms.

Max Payne 3 flopped across all platforms. It flopped on PC, it flopped on 360 and it flopped on PS3.

Why do you say Max Payne 3 flopped? It has not sold anything close to GTA 5 but I wouldn't call it a flop.

Last night the bean counters at Take Two Interactive released their financials for the last year and there were some surprising announcements in between all the tedious non-GAAP and loan note talking.

First up let’s take a look at the juicy sales numbers.

Borderlands 2 has now become 2K’s biggest selling title with the latest retail push helping the title sail past the 8.5 million mark. 2K, owned by Take Two, also pulled in some great sales of their signature NBA 2K series with the latest version, NBA2K14, selling over 5 million units which has pushed the franchise over the 35 million mark to date.

But the real money spinner was obviously Grand Theft Auto V which has now officially sold over 32 million copies already and is still widely expected to earn a lot more money with upcoming DLC, Xbox One and PS4 versions as well as the much-anticipated PC version.

The rest of the income earned is spread across XCOM, Bioshock, WWE, Civ 5 and GTA: San Andreas to name a few.

However those aren’t the most surprising numbers from the announcement. If you scroll all the way down Take Two have also given the breakdown of sales according to mobile, console or PC and the results are mind-blowing.

Consoles vs The Master Race

In the 2012 financial year the breakdown was as follows

  • Console – 80%
  • PC – 18%
  • Mobile – 2%

A clear lead for the console market which is a bit of a shock since Max Payne 3 was released during that time on all platforms.

But fast forward to today and the breakdown for 2013 sales is vastly different

  • Console – 97%
  • PC – 3%
  • Mobile – 0%

To put it bluntly Take Two is now simply a console house with that 3% barely even worth the effort of porting games over. Games like NBA2K, Borderlands 2 and XCOM: Enemy Within are debatable better on the console and with consoles having total domination inside the company you can understand why top titles like Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto V simply aren’t on the immediate horizon for PC gamers.

Do we have to mention the obvious factor of piracy being a major issue on the PC and that is possibly why Take-2 are investing more into consoles than the platform of the master race?

Sales tactics and Digital vs Retail

Take Two’s new sales plan also includes bundles with their next two bundles being Borderlands 2 & Dishonoured hitting retailers on the 11th of February along with a second, decidedly odd bundle of Skyrim & Bioshock Infinite which would make a perfect Valentine’s present for that special person in your life.

And for all of those, like me, who was worried that digital sales would ruin the typical retail experience it is nice to see that Take Two’s digital sales only accounted for 3% of all their sales. Again with GTA V skewing that results quite badly. Last year digital accounted for 22% of sales as a comparison.

The last bit of interesting info is that North America counts for 45% of all Take Two sales with the rest of the world combined making up the other 55% with no region being big enough to get a special mention.

http://www.lazygamer.net/xbox-360/this-is-why-gta-v-isnt-on-pc-yet/

this is stupid, its 3% because they are not releasing games on PC

its not like they release all games on all platforms at the same time and PC came along with only 3% of sales

this publisher is also console focused, some other publishers more focused on PC games might have oposite numbers

This is Take Two's financials. Other companies would be entirely different.

PC was first in sales not including social gaming titles. Re-read those graphs I linked.

who really cares? GTA 5 is boring crap.. We've done it all before, The gta formula has gotten stale for me. I prefer saints row over the GTA series. Saying the pc race isn't the master race because their is low sales of TAKE 2 games doesn't really matter. Pc could have .000000001% of the sales and still be the master race, Because sales numbers arent the reason its called the master race. Its called the MR because it SIMPLY DOES EVERYTHING. That includes pirating if one so desires

I generally assume anyone with a low post count that has recently created an account is an alt, and more so when they seem to have an understanding of SW and its users

Dat Kill la Kill. I don't think you can even tell who's actually banned anymore.

On topic, I don't really care since I didn't find GTA V that much fun and I wouldn't get it for PC anyway.
