The six billion pound franchise that’s made in Scotland

In case you missed it, Brian Baglow has the reminder, over on Scottish Games:

While it’s too early to provide reliable sales figures, industry analysts are forecasting sales of 20-25,000,000 units in the first twelve months and generate a billion dollars in sales in the first month. With such positive reviews and the reception thus far, this figure does not seem unreasonable. As of December 2012, GTA IV alone had sold over 25,000,000 copies.

…Globally, the series has sold 125,000,000 copies to date, generating around $6,000,000,000.  The games have received almost all of the awards it is possible for them to win and the most recent games are some of the highest scoring in the world.

Made in Scotland, from girders bits and bytes.
