Fable Creator – GTAV Sales “Not Impressive”

Within 24 hours, Grand Theft Auto V had made an awe inspiring $800 million, double the spent budget on the title. Yet for Peter Molynuex, this is, “not impressive.”

At the mobile innovation conference hosted by Mobile Entertainment last night, Molynuex states;

“GTA V will achieve around $1 billion in revenue on consoles in just one month. Sounds impressive doesn’t it? No. That’s not impressive.” Molynuex compared the sales of GTA V, a AAA title to that of the mobile platform where mobile games are, he claims, “achieving between $3 million and $5 million a day. That is impressive.”

Whilst Molynuex is indeed correct about the immense profits reaped by the mobile industry the comparison to GTA V huge sales this week has come to be viewed as a strange idea by many critics. To compare two different operating platforms with two entirely different markets seems to be rather unneeded.
