It's a longshot. Call of Duty has the dudebro gamer wrapped around it's finger.


I dunno, in my experience, if there's two games dudebros love, it's Call of Duty & GTA. Plus the fact GTA has other gamers that will buy it, I don't see it being so far fetched.

GTA5 had a chance at being #1 but now that a game analyst said so it's doomed.

Is 2008 so long ago people forget that Grand Theft Auto WAS CoD in terms of market dominance? 3 broke sales records, VC broke sales records, SA broke sales records, IV broke sales record and even IV's DLC broke sales records. I can always dig disagreement, but really the concept of GTA V outdoing CoD shouldn't seem that foreign. To me, if the series were to suddenly stop working the magic that they've worked for over a decade, that would be a far more bizarre development.


This... let's keep in mind that when GTA IV first came out it was the largest first week release of any entertainment media ever. MW2 broke that record the following year, but it's still important to note. GTA had a huge gamer base back then and has an even greater one now, what with four years of GTA IV being available and the fact that it's one of the best-rated games in history.

Also, just throwing this out there, but Black Ops II failed to surpass MW3's first-week sales. It may have overcome it in terms of overall sales by now, but it generated less revenue at the original launch. Though this could be due to Halo 4 and other big titles coming out within the same two-week span.

Nobody is "fussing" about it here. We're discussing the feasibility of outselling it.

Although GTA rightfully should outsell CoD and as much as Id like it to outsell CoD, it probably wont happen.


I would do anything to have something outsell it so a once decent franchise can be put to rest and this yearly crap stops

I would think gamers would be tired of FPS games by now or very least COD. Nothing against the game but the way they've been saturating the market with them you'd think people would stop caring like the GH/RB games.


I agree too many of the same type even halo does not release that frequently there is so many Good FPS that have been overshadowed like Metro2033 and Deus EX HR

Everyone has a right to. It's popularity is also an influence on the industry. I personally feel it's having a negative effect on it, just as the premanufactured garbage/ hip-hop influenced pop music has had on our youth and the music industry in America the last twenty years. It causes companies to homogenize it's creative force, and the trend tends to spread throughout the entire industry creating bland products for brainwashed sheep.

CoD can suck infinitely and people will continue to buy each new title every year. I also think most of the players know CoD aint that great anymore and people continue to buy it because 'its the cool thing'.
