Battle of the Heavy Weights: GTA 5 vs BlackOPS 2

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Battle of the Heavy Weights: GTA 5 vs BlackOPS 2

 

Two of the biggest franchises in console gaming in recent memory. Assuming GTA 5 will launch end of 2012 or early 2013

1) Which one will sell more across all platforms?

2) Are you hyped for either, keep in mind that one is being milked to the max and the predecessor (gta4) of the other failed on so many levels?

I think that Black Ops will probably be on more systems. So it will probably sell more in the end. Assuming it gets Vita, PC, Wii U, Wii, PSP, 3DS, PS3, 360.

Below we see that CoD wins. GTA has never sold over 21 million copies.

PS3 & 360 only GTA will win. but otherwise i think black ops 2 will once you add Wii, DS, 3DS?, Vita?, PC.

Even doing what you say, as you can see from the chart up above, Black Ops still wins. 360 black ops sold more than GTAIV did, and I think the same for PS3 GTAIV.

1. i'm confident that black ops will outsell gta5 across all platforms

2. i'm hyped for gta5, i'll pass on black ops 2 at least until it's much cheaper (a year or so after release)

Happily CoD games still have plenty of people still playing online 1-2 years later. If that is your kind of thing...

i've always been more casual a gamer when it comes to competitive online,  mostly because i'm not too willing to spend a ton of time playing one game. i was thinking more about playing the new edition of nazi zombies :P



Black Ops 2 will sell more.

Can't wait for Black Ops 2, first one was great.



Blops will sell more, GTA V will be a vastly better game.

Still don't get the hate for GTA IV.
