Console Grand Theft Auto V in September

Rockstar Games announces a September 17th release date for the console editions of Grand Theft Auto V, apologizing for the delay to the open-world action sequel, and saying: "trust us, it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require." No announcement has yet been made about a PC edition of the game, but for reference, a Windows version of Grand Theft Auto IV was only first announced a few months after the console editions shipped.

Let's assume the GTA4 VGchartz stats are correct (could be a big assumption, who knows?)

360: 10.11
PS3: 9.59
PC: .74

Well, that PC number is definitely off, but let's also assume that Microsoft would just go for console exclusivity, not total platform exclusivity.
Let's also assume that the 2 add-ons sold a total of 4 million on the PS3. They sold for $20, correct?

So, if we assume all those PS3 copies went for full price (unlikely), as did the add-ons, that would be about $655 million in revenue the PS3 brought in. Some of that goes to retailers, some of that goes elsewhere, etc. And there are development savings.

Still, to make up for the lost PS3 revenue, I would expect them to want at least 400-500 million. On top of that, there would be fewer Xbox sales since fewer people would have the system.
Plus they have their pride. Kind of. That would bump the cost 10%.

Eh. 400-650 million would probably do it.
Music for the discerning:
