Perhaps some counseling would help him. He seems to have some issues.
You just got completely humiliated by massive ranting and raving that predicted a bit fall . . . and instead there was a big gain. Why don't you have an ounce of humility and just shut up? You think anyone is going to take your lunatic ranting seriously after you just were 100% wrong? Sheesh.
Well, that prediction sure didn't work out too well. I think the "Rockstar will announce something SOON." got people interested. Plus the numbers were good.
You definitely could be correct. I'm just being cautious because BattleBorn didn't do so well, they haven't released much product, and the GTA Online revenue is a bit opaque. But I do think there is a good chance we will be pleasantly surprised. GTA V and NBA 2K have the legs of a supermodel. And GTA Online has definitely got to be bringing in some good money for them to be spending so much time continually tweaking it.
And what I REALLY like about all of this is that it has given Mafia 3 and the RDR sequel more time to be polished and improved. Imagine if RDR sequel is as big of a hit as GTA V . . . if they have two sandbox mega-hits they can alternate between, that would be GREAT.
I think earnings will be pretty average. TTWO is just treading water right now with XCOM, NBA 2Kn sales, GTA V sales, and the weak BattleStillBorn.
Yeah, it could be a thing where the PC version does well but the console versions don't do so well. MOBA has mainly been a PC thing. Gearbox is probably feeling a bit dejected over this. Which in a way is maybe a good thing because TTWO may then continue to have leverage with them.
And . . . the reviews are now not looking so good.
More like BattleStillBorn, amirite!! Ugh. I never understood this game because I was never into the MOBA thing. It looks like Gearbox may have never understood the MOBA thing. :-/
Well, Mafia 3 better be damn good! And we could really use some RDR news.
Yeah, those gussied up lead-acid batteries are gonna take over the world!
Ooooh, good point on this possibly being a Levine project. He definitely goes for the heavy philosophical narratives.
I was thinking about the lack of an aerial component to RDR . . . perhaps they should add hot air balloons! That would be simple cute little addition.
Map could be legit. Who knows? Doesn't really reveal much. Could be an intentional leak for free press . . . I like the fact that there is a "New Bordeaux" so there is some cross-over with Mafia 3. Perhaps this was a way to use Rockstar to provide some stealth marketing for Mafia 3?
Yeah, if those claims from the lawsuit saying that GTA Online is bringing in so much money, they may allow products to stay in the oven and get more polish. I'm starting to think that they want to make the RDR sequel into a game almost as successful as GTA V so they are putting more work into RDR and making sure it will have a good online component too. Though without being able to use aerial vehicles, it will be more limited.
That's nice. I hope it is a big hit . . . I suspect it will do pretty well as 2K Czech are good, the people running Hangar 13 are good, and TTWO has pushed really hard for high quality on all products. But TTWO launching Mafia 3 in October probably means that we are not going to see the RDR sequel this year. :-/ Perhaps they are setting up RDR for a release next March?
Kobe Bryant’s NBA® 2K17 Legend Edition is currently the 4th best-selling game at Amazon . . . it doesn't come out until September. Yeah, I don't think EA's Live is going to have a real come-back this year.
Both GTA V and NBA 2K16 are selling better than Call of Duty . . . Activision am cry.
I still wish TTWO could buy the MLB 16: The Show development team from Sony so they could make MLB 2Kn but be multi-platform.

I have a hard time believing this . . . but according to things in
the Benzies lawsuit :
As part of former Rockstar North president Leslie Benzies' $150 million lawsuit against Take-Two, it's been revealed that GTA Online has generated "at least" $500 million in revenue from microtransactions.
Holy smokes if true. No wonder they feel no urgency to ship product and are polishing up the RDR sequel. They want to create another golden goose.
