I know that many copies won't be bought because some people have multiple consoles, some people have dead consoles and some people just don't have an interest in these sorts of games. But if we compare it to PC (as you know it's very difficult to get the total number of gaming PCs, so I will just use Steam) as of Aug 2012 there are 54 million active users for Steam. I do know that some people have multiple accounts, some people won't be interested in getting GTA V and not every PC gamer uses Steam. But if you do the math
133.9 million potential sales for consoles vs 54 million potential sales for PC.
Yeah, but you must know that 133.9 is just that, there is no more, while 54 is ONLY Steam. There are a lot more potential buyers, but as you said it, it is immpossible to know exact number, but you must understand that currently there isn't 133.9 million console online, a lot are "dead". While there is more gaming machine than 54 millions.
Anyway that is whole another story.
I'm still sad, because this is sad story from R*, but true one. I hoped this time will be different, but I guess weather tricked me.
