https://rockstarintel.com/take-two-q4-2019-earnings-report-red-dead-redemption-2-has-sold-over-24-million-copies-worldwide

"Red Dead Redemption 2 has now sold 24 Million copies worldwide. Only selling 1 Million copies in the last 3 months. Take-Two Interactive have said it’s still selling better than expected.

Red Dead Online will be coming out of beta this Quarter, meaning it will come out of Beta by the end of June. CEO Strauss Zelnick also claimed that they have content drops coming for Red Dead Online. Claiming Online is performing very well."

lol, the CEO talks about RDR2 online as if it's a good thing. The online portion of that game is dead!

"Grand Theft Auto V has now sold over 110 Million copies worldwide. Still selling very well for a game that’s almost 6 years."

That's crazy. Where does it rank in All-Time sellers now?

I couldn't get through RDR2. I played and enjoyed RDR, but I found the second was just far too slow for me. From what I hear, the game was pretty damn great, so well-deserved sales. As for GTAV... Nobody can explain that lol.

They still haven't made a PC version yet. So, a lotta potential sales there. I also feel like they are going to make a next-gen edition too.

@whatafailure: In retail sales? First and it’s no close.

Else you got games like Minecraft but that’s harder to track because of the mobile sales, F2P with microtransactions etc.

@dimebag667: I maybe got 4-5 hours in, and it just dragged far too much. Travelling became such a chore that it just broke the game-play for me. Sold it, but if it does release for PC, I might buy it dirt cheap.

Epic Games wipes their ass cheeks with this money and these sales. Fortnite has over 200 million downloads and they're bullying/humiliating Steam! Companies are too POOR to fight against Epic Games.

Alright bud, your shit-posting is weak. I just responded to you in another thread lol. The people who respond to you (including myself,) are just finding your posts idiotic.

Are you saying RDR2 is better than GTAV, and that it selling less is not surprising? I mean, RDR2 was released a short while ago, and GTAV has years and multiple systems over RDR2.

@lundy86_4: It has a couple cool scenes, but overall it's just boring. I don't mind it being slow if it's done well. Just riding around on my horse in rdr1 was one of my favorite things to do, but they ruined that for me in this game with boring environments and annoying music. Almost everything you do is completely pointless or unnecessary. It saddens me to think about how good it should've been.

He's also leaving out the fact that Fortnite sold more than both of them combined, and it's the superior game. Sometimes the better game does sell more.

Those GTA V sales are insane and those Red Dead Redemption 2 sales are very impressive as well. You’d have to be pretty stupid to think that the RDR2 are in any way “bad” or “disappointing” in comparison to GTAV considering GTAV has been out for years and on 5 platforms while RDR2 has been out for months and only on 2 platforms.

So where are my "user base" argument guys at?

RDR2 only 24 million on both Xbox one and PS4 out of 135 million user base?

GTA V across 5 platforms with of over 450 million install user base? Sold less than a 4th the user base?

Impressive or nah? Isn't the argument that games supposed to sell at 100% of the user base or something?

So this is a mega flop or what guys?

Where are all the people who scream low user base percentage when PS4 exclusives sell 10 million on that single platform?

RDR2 and GTV V are multiplat and aren't even half the "user base"! Why aren't you xbox and PC fanatics who always scream "user base" when discussing Sony exclusive sales crucifying this pathetic showing by Take-Two?

Good for them both games are amazing in their own ways although I don't give a shit about the online. I'm actually replaying RDR2 on PS4 wishing it was on PC. I need that 60 FPS and mouse and keyboard controls I know I would enjoy the game so much more on PC just on control alone I will always hate aiming with a gamepad .

Good golly, molly! And they hired a 1,000 voice actors just for RDR2 using a ton of that GTAV money.

Now imagine the army they're going to use for GTA 6 (rumored to have multiple cities).

Taking a look at Wikipedia's list, only Tetris and Minecraft are higher, but they include mobile versions, like you said. So in terms of pure console sales, GTAV is definitely the undisputed king.

And I just knew you'd pop up to mention a Nintendo game. Why am I not surprised.

According to Wikipedia, that 80 million figure is including all of the bundles. So wouldn't it make sense for the number to be high if it comes packed in with the Wii, which sold over 100 million? I can't remember if Wii Sports sold separately later on (and if it did, was it for $40? $60?). Yes, there's a difference between one platform and five platforms, but there's also a difference between a bundled game, and one individually sold for $60!

Yes, but you had lots of options. If you hated GTA games, you could get other bundles, or no bundle at all and just the consoles.

With Wii, I believe you could not run away from Wii Sports. Love or hate Wii Sports, you are getting it with the Wii no matter what. It will follow you and sleep among your video game library no matter what you do.

God of War surpasses 5 million units sold in the first month

@Bread_or_Decide said:

Percentage wise it's pretty shameful. This is the only business where capturing 5 million of your 80 million users is somehow a success.

Any other business that would be shameful and a downright failure.

@kuu2 said:

Low attach rate.

Congrats to the dev team though they are happy.

@Bread_or_Decide said:

10% would be better on day one. 20% Lifetime sales.

Let's face it, all these PS4 users are just watching Netflix. They're not buying these OMG EXCLUSIVES everyone keeps bragging about. Switch sold ONE TO ONE with BOTW. ONE TO MUTHAFUKIN ONE. Now that's how a game should sell.

According to attach rate experts like Bread_or_Decide on Sony games they should sale 10% of user base day 1, according to that logic RDR2 should have sold 13 million day 1.

I'm just wondering where they are all at in this thread, It's pretty relevant!

I always laugh at ignorant people who think 24 Million+ sold for RDR2 is some how “bad”.

It’s funny that Rockstar has to constantly tell investors that not every game on the planet will sell 110 Million copies like GTAV.

Those are amazing sales for a freaking western game.

Considering all the complaints I hear about RDR2, I'm still going to wait for PC + mods. Maybe they can speed the game up a little, in case that's going to bug me. Also f*** them for the DLC horse and exclusive missions. I will wait for the budget bin. Not in a hurry anyway.

Have you ever thought that cows are the ones who make 99% of sales threads on here, and therefore get mocked when your games sales are small in comparison to the install base?

If you don't wish to be mocked about your sales then stop with the sales threads, its a simple concept.

Hypocritical? Cows are the ones posting sales day in and day out and acting like it's all that matters. You cows were claiming selling 3M with a userbase of 80M+ was like some grand accomplishment. Why would we comment on RRD2 sales when it's a multiplat and lems aren't the ones bragging about sales? Logic completely skip you when you were born?
