    Take the cost of the console...

    $299

    That's what it would cost for my family to go see five movies. How many movies have we gone to the theatre to see since 2007, 20 at least.

    I haven't had to pay for the console more than one time. Add in about $600 worth of game costs... I've still spent more money on the theatre.

    So, like I said, "more".

    How big is your family? Otherwise it costs less and is more widely available to the whole world. Does your whole family play GTA?

    E: Of course theatres can fill up.

    I'm not actually understanding what we're arguing about. The revenue is definitely the most impressive in all entertainment.

    Lol that is terrible logic. Just plain awful.


    Game= $60
    Movie= $10

    This means games cost MORE.

    You are not acounting for home use w(which is how we play video games thesedays) and in that case Movies cost less.
    In the UK the standard price seems to be around the 20 mark even as far back as the VHS days wheras new video games are around the 40 mark. If you shop around you can probably get both for cheaper.
    and that $300 console can be used to watch your movies on as well.


    GTAV Record breaker?

    Well, Rockstar must be now happy with what they were able to achieve, yet there is even more to come.

    I think what F34R meant (or if not I'm saying it :P ), that video games can have greater entertainment value per dollar. $10 for a 2 hour movie or $60 for a game that could entertain from 6 to 100 hours.

    Game=60$ for full experience
    Movie= 10$ for full experience, popcorn, drinks etc are a luxuries that are not accounted for in movie revenues.

    The point still stands that it would take 6 times more "purchases" of a movie to match revenue of a game. So all in all, you can sell 10 million games (less with SE games) and still have more revenue than 50 million entries for a movie.

    One has a wider audience potential, the other has a higher revenue potential.

    It will always be easier for games to beat "entertainment" records than mostly any other "format". It's comparing apples to grapefruits!
