The recently release date delay of GTA V (Grand Theft Auto V) from Spring 2013 to September 2013 has almost confirmed a supremacy and billion dollar battle between GTA V and next Call of Duty game (expected to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4). Year over year Call of Duty games have been taking top spot in sales department all due to little or no competition whatsoever from others. But with the arrival of GTA V in 2013, things may change for Activision and next Call of Duty.

Here are few facts about GTA V and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 to help you out in your voting.


In today's time GTA V is the most anticipated game, and is also a hot topic on gaming blogs and tongues of gamers. The actual reason behind this is that the last game in GTA series was launched five years ago, way back in 2008, isn't this a long time for anyone to wait for something they loved very much?. So fans are overjoyed because the best ever free roam series in history is making a comeback that too in grand style (with bigger maps, three lead character and more).


Furthermore, the last game in GTA series sold over 25 million units (most successful in franchise history), and so on an expected line GTA V will do slightly better because the install base of current consoles have increased considerably. And also the sales on GTA V will easily cross 30 million mark, if Rockstar decides to release the game on next-generation console.

Going by the track record of all previous Call of Duty game, each one managed to sell more units than its predecessor, however this time around there's no confirmation that Modern Warfare 4 will have same fate. During recent investor call, Activision stated that sales of next CoD in 2013 is expected to be down from Black Ops 2, and the reason behind this is "challenged global economy" and "the ongoing console transition,".

I personally love both grand theft auto and cod, but I'm gonna have to go with gta. I mean, gta is something new and fresh every time a new one is released. It is also an appealing blend of driving, shooting, and exploration. Cod, I hate to admit, is just the same thing over and over again with a new storyline and a couple new features. Gta is new storyline, new vehicles, use of money, shooting, new characters, new physics, etc.

First of all you have to know the difference between Rockstar and Activition, Rockstar loves to push it to the limit, they like to take risks considering what they’ve done in the past. Activition on the other is money oriented. They release the same crap every year with little or no effort to make it better. They just had a few new guns here and there and slap a new tittle to the game and COD fans simply rush to buy it. GTA V has been in the works since the release of GTA IV that’s about 6 years now and mw4 is just a year, sorry but i’ll rather spend $60 on a game that brings something new than to spend it on a repetitive s*** again.

Considering that CoD is only for stupid people with short attention spans who dribble when they eat, clearly the logical answer is that GTA V will win this! Why would anyone with any small degree of intelligence buy CoD these days?!

I think its a lot of ppl with sour grapes. More n more ppl have been buying cod which means ppl are going to get better n better at playing it. Cod made online multi fps what they are today n yr after yr many try but they all fail to overtake cod. There is a reason for that they are all great games from world at war 2 bo2. How will GTA 5 be any different in terms of story line n game play same old crime game do this mission go here drive here its just all the same. Cod will destroy it yes same basic principal but they do it so well n with new weapons perks n score or kill streaks cod will destroy GTA n show it for what it is.

Grand theft auto! Rockstar has waited five years so you know they're working a masterpiece as always! And everything that was left out of IV will be back in V with our favorite city, Los Santos, making a return but larger and with greater graphics! Activision is just bringing out their next game without worrying about an ything more than money. The GTA series everybody has grown to love won't disappoint as it never does!

I love both series, but there are some things wrong here. First of all, I doubt the next CoD is MW4. The story has nowhere left to go. Secondly, I don't agree with many of the commentors here. I don't judge a game for being a CoD game. I judge it by the developer. MW3 was such a crappy waste of time, I will never buy a game made by Infinity Ward ever again. Black Ops 2, on the other hand, was great in my opinion. They really did do a good job on it. I know many people agree with me, especially about MW3, which is why if CoD 10 is MW4, it will not sell well. I also said I am a big fan of GTA, and the biggest difference in quality is Grand Theft Auto has been good every single time. I got hooked on GTA 3, then I bought GTA Vice City and got hooked on that, and GTA San Andreas is still my favorite game of all time. Now that I have a PS3, I'm hooked on GTA IV. GTA V looks to top them all with amazing graphics, a enormous map, and PLANES. GTA IV's biggest downfall was how much they removed that was in San Andreas. I can't wait for GTA V, and I'll be preordering it once the release date gets closer. As for the next CoD, I will wait to see what it is, who's making it, and then I'll decide whether it will crash and burn, or be great. My vote goes to Grand Theft Auto V, though, because of it's unmatched MASSIVE fanbase. Rockstar lights up the Internet just by releasing one picture, and I think that is why GTA V will be the best-selling game of 2013 and 2014.

I agree, with the first part. MW3 was terrible, but gets your facts right, Activision made it. MW2 made solely by Infinity Ward was amazing, then Activision came by and bought Infinity Ward while they had started MW3. That's what made MW3 terrible.

This has got to be the stupidest question ever. Gta V has this win in the bag. COD can suck my big fat balls cause they're only about money now and every game is the same shit again and again and again and again. I use to like COD but fuck them now. R* cares.

Call of duty game makers are just Greedy and want to make more money of everyone, Rockstar Releases each Grand Theft Auto game arround 2.5-5 Years and Call of duty make a new game like every year.

If you want to take cover and yet still die, fire 7 rounds into the enemy and they "one shot" kill you and watch people with god awful internet take apart entire squads with ease, go ahead and buy Modern Warfare 4. Everyone knows with the departure Infinity Ward's founders, along with practically the entire staff of Infinity Ward, the series has gone to hell. If you want an unrivalled playing universe, some of the best graphics anywhere and exciting plot lines then get Grand Theft Auto.

GTA V has no challenge there, since the original modern warfare CoD games after has been nothing but expansions of new maps branded a new name with nothing else new to the table. You want a fun FPS then battlefield 3 is the way to go.

The call of Duty franchise has been amazingly entertaining.My personal favourite is CoD MW3 because it was able to quick scope but BO II wasnt able to do that. GTA V is going to be a game that I can say that I think will be a huge success and will continue to entertain the next generation.But to be honest... CALL OF DUTY FOREVER!!! but Im a HARDCORE CoD fan but enjoy gta.

GTA V will undoubtedly win out against another generic COD game. Because of 1 simple thing. Personally I hate games that force me along a straight line, and then lock me into the next scene. I can't tell you how many times I've been stuck with no ammo and no chance in a game like COD. GTA's sandbox style gaming is the only true destiny for video games. Freedom to move where you want, do what you want, destroy what you want, drive, fly, ride or walk any where. The army mentality has to die for other video-games companies to have a chance.

COD is overrated. They come out with a new one every year and its always the same old crap. GTA is what, 6 years in the making? Battlefield 3 is way more advanced than any upcoming COD game. But the same idiots will keep buying it thinking it will be different, but its just the same sh#t.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was the worst crap I have ever played, period. I played the game with an open mind but it failed to entertain on all fronts (Modern Warefare 3 was a waste of time and disc space as well). As a life long fan of the Grand Theft Auto series and dedicated fan of Rockstar Games, my vote obviously goes to GTA V. With all that said, COD fans are going to hate me and call me bias but I loved Call of Duty: World at War, great game, just a shame its the only one. GTA V is going to slaughter COD!

i agree about mw3, black ops 2 was ok, but COD has lost its touch. GTA V will win the battle between the two easily, the anticipation for it is unbelievable.
