How the hell is GTA still selling so much? Did it have a promotion or a price drop in the last week? I know it was 50% off or something like that on PS store and Steam.

What I don't understand is just how much higher GTAV is than the other GTA games, like the series was already huge but this blew it through the roof.

Zhuge said wii u version launched higher 

Was he  talking about the U.K. specifically or WW? If WW i am a little surprised because it seemed to be doing pretty well, at least on Amazon globally. Also, if he has U.S. figures in already that's a massively quick turnaround for sales data.

UK. WW i would guess switch is higher.

I think it is really going to depend on France in EU and US and other smaller regions combined. I think Japan is going to be region where it will be significantly lower than the original at launch, at least based off of its COMG pre-order run.

I was always under the impression that Bayonetta was more of a Western franchise and was pretty unpopular in Japan. Did Bayo 2 do that well in Japan to be concerned about the Switch re-release's performance there?

Well to be fair releasing on PS3/360 and then re-releasing on PS4/XOne probably near doubled its sales. It would still be the biggest GTA by far, but not as much if not for the re-release.

Plus compared to GTA4, it's a much better game. GTA4 had a lot of criticism when it was released and while I still think it's a great game it's generally considered one of the weaker GTA titles. 5 however is just a great game. GTA Online has no doubt helped a lot too. Sure GTA4 had a lot of multiplayer modes as well, but like I said people just didn't like 4 as much.

GTAIV had massive praise upon release though. I guess being re-released probably helped its sales a lot though.

It had massive praise from critics. Ask the fans though and you'll hear a lot about how it was a step backwards from San Andreas.

It's hard to gauge that though, I don't know how the perception of it changed as it went on.
