How much did it sell on PS4 and XB1?

Numbers for GTA V on PS4 are around 20 million.

For Xbox one around 9 million. 

These numbers are VGC's last estimates for physical sales. End of 2018.

They don't include digital sales, and also GTA V has shipped an additional 35m copies since these numbers.

The sales are much higher than this.

Well since it won't reach 40 million on current gen consoles. Why would you assume gtaV to sell 40 million+ on next gen platforms? That just won't happen, no matter how strong the game performs overall. 

So to answer the question of the op. No, gtaV on next gen consoles won't outsell animal crossing NH. Even current gen won't outsell it. 

???

It's absolutley sold well over 40m on current-gen consoles.... lol.

PS4 + XBO + PC have sold about 100m combined... did you not read? Or are you assuming PC sales are 65m+?

Since when is pc a console?

We are talking about unit sales on consoles. 

Please provide me with gtaV sales on PS4 and xbone. We can use those figures as a starting point for answering the op's question.



Think for yourself, question authority

Interesting stats from this site: https://gamstat.com/games/GTA_5/

Total Players

PS4 = 92.4m
PS3 = 58.5m
XBO+360 = 71.8m

9m people have played GTA V on Xbox Platforms in the last month.

4.7m people have earned a trophy in GTA V on PlayStation platforms in the past month.

1.2m people played GTA V on PS4 for the first time in the past month.

380k people played GTA V on Xbox Platforms for the first time in the past month.

Obviously Players will be higher than actual sales due to preowned games, sharing games, multiple accounts etc. But still interesting stats to see.

Well since we don't have the breakdown per platform, estimates are tough.

 Statistica.com had gta5 at just under 20 million units sold on PS4 as of January 2020.

That would be in line with sales of GTA 5 on

PS3: 21.3 million

PS2 San Andreas: 17.33 million

Also by statistica The Xbox one version of the game sold 8.7 million units as of January 2020.

That would account for 28~29 million units between the two platforms as of January 2020. Now let's say it sold another 3 million units across the two platforms since January. That would put GTA 5 at around 32 million units sold between PS4/xbone LTD, fair?

Statistica.com is literally just using VGChartz as it's source lol.

VGC has physical sales for PS4 as 20m and XBO at 8.7m as of end of 2018. Add in digital sales to that 28.7m figure and you're looking at 35m sold on them by the end of 2018. Now add in sales since then (GTA V continues to be at or near the top of the PSN best seller charts to this day).

We can't confidently say where PS4+XBO sales are exactly. But we're looking at a range of 40m-60m.

Although animal crossing won't outsell gta5 combined on all platforms. It wil outsell it on PS4 + xbone.

Ps5 + Xbox series should be no problem.

What's crazy is that animal crossing nh outsold every game ever released on a single PlayStation or Xbox platform. It did so in just over 3 months.

Thankyou. And yeah if it is going to beat PS4 + XB1, then I expect the same for PS5 and XSX. And Yes ACNH just stomped on every exclusive this gen (if we dont count MK8D but it probably will soon) 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

No it won’t. Because after a few months that game will be pretty much given away for free whereas AC will still be sold for 60 bucks.



AC New Horizon will end up with around 50 million imo.
Will GTA V sell that much on next gen? I honestly feel it's possible but i don't feel like making any predictions, i won't be surprised if it will at all.



This question is impossible to answer. No one knows the breakdown by platform What percentage of those sales are on PC? Is it 5% or 50%? I'm seeing wildly different responses on this thread already, because no one really knows.

In reality GTA5 is outsold by several Nintendo games when you compare sales on a single system. When you take that 130m and start splitting it 5 ways, then it doesn't sound nearly as impressive. Back when NPD would report software numbers Mario Kart Wii would regularly kick GTA4's ass on the monthly charts, and Mario Kart stayed on the chart longer. Not long after that NPD combined PS3 and 360 SKU's and stopped reporting software numbers. Third party titles "magically" moved up on the charts. Nowadays it is even worse, because they lump PC sales in there too while NIntendo games do not have digital sales included. GTA5 doesn't hold any of the major records either even though I've seen several online sites report this. Has it sold more copies than any other video game? Nope, Tetris and Minecraft have sold more. Has it generated more revenue than any other game? Nope. WoW has to be billions of $$ ahead of everyone else. (Just do the math on subscription money + expansions.)

All of this smoke and mirrors means that we'll never really know the answer to the OP's question. But do a little math and you can be sure that AC:NH will outsell GTA5 on any single platform (except maybe PC). Combine XBox and Playstation for any generation and AC likely wins there too, but again, we'll never really know for sure.



I don't know if it would say terrible things about NH or amazing things about GTA V if GTA V outsold it on PS5/XSS/X.

Probably the latter though, I'd just be disappointed in people if it sold that much.
