$265,000,000. Try to wrap your head around this. This is the amount of money it cost to develop GTA V.

Let's put this into perspective. GTA V's $265 million budget is bigger than 98% of AAA hollywood blockbuster movies such as Avatar, Spiderman, Batman, Harry Potter, The Avengers, Superman Returns, and Iron Man.

Here's a good article about GTA IV's 100 million budget that you can compare it to:

So GTA V is more than 2.5 times as expensive to make. Given the insane detail and quality in IV i cant wrap my head around this. So let's see how much Rockstar has made in preorders alone:

25,000,000 preorders * 60 - 265,000,000 = 1.235 billion

My calculator even craps out at 1.235e+9. The thing is smoking as I type.

Did you intend to put 25 million preorders in your equation?
