They have been working on this game FOREVER and a **** ton of R&D and man hours went into it.
There are whole Building murals going up in most major city's. There is a huge one over Times Square. Do you have any idea how much money it costs to get a 1000 foot tall picture painted on the side of a building or even a small space in Times Square?

Battlefield 3 cost $200,000,000 to market, so me guessing $100,000,000 is probably a low guess.

There's no way Rockstar spent 100 mil on marketing. Maybe 50 mil, tops, and it seems way less aggressive than IV's efforts. They don't even really have to advertise, all it takes is a few youtube vids and they can pretty much break even at a minimum from the pre-orders alone. Most of their ads are billboards, building murals and bus wraps so you're more likely to only see them in big cities anyway. They don't even do E3 or any of the gaming expos.

Plus, development costs were estimated around 137 mil in January right before its release date got pushed back almost 6 months, so factor in all of the additional employee cost and overtime on top of that.

Now I know why DICE created premium. Gotta recoup the money they overspent on marketing.

Yeah rockstar doesn't really need to do anything to sell copies of GTA, it sells itself at this point in the franchise.

I know right! If I think about it, I don't remember seeing half the publicity or bf3 that I'm seeing for GTAV.

I work 10am-7pm the day GTA comes out -_-. looks like I will only be playing it for like an hour or so after I get it at midnight.

I've got Mon-Wed off...going to get in line at Gamestop early so that I can be in front of all the greasy nerds and get the hell out of there ASAP.

Probably just going to steal a nice convertible first thing and cruise around as much of the map as I can so that I can 'unfog' it. Kind of weird that they did that, but it'll encourage exploration.

That's what you'll say when you walk into work after not sleeping a wink, twitching from the awesome experience lol

I have to work at 7am to 5pm on Tuesday FML The GameStop here is catering Hooters and serving some kind of energy drink for people who are in line. Whoever is front in line should get a bunch of free merch. Usually they will hand out the collectors editions first (usually one sweaty nerd by himself every time

How does the presale work with picking the game up?

My fiancÚ bought the game for me, if I bring a copy of the receipt can I pick it up? Or does it have to be her?

I think you'll be fine with just the receipt. And ID to prove you're old enough maybe. Idk
