This morning I tried turning on my Samsung TV only to discover that it wouldn’t come on. Unplugging it didn’t work, I even switched all HDMI cables to no avail. The only thing I could do was sit on my sofa in anguish, thinking that I wouldn’t be able to play Grand Theft Auto 5 at launch.
It enveloped my body with such a paralyzing dread that I immediately shot back up and tried to turn it on again. Fortunately it worked, and I still have no idea what happened. When the most expensive video game ever made is coming out in just eight days, I would have purchased an entirely new television just to experience Los Santos once again.
The production cost of Grand Theft Auto 5 was just released today by The Scotsman and at a price tag of $266 million, it makes it the most expensive game ever made in history. GTA 5 also costs more to make than every movie ever made in cinematic history aside from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, which cost $300 (considering inflation). Keep in mind that marketing costs have not been factored in.
Now everyone should get ready for September 17th, otherwise known as the day the Earth stood still. Props to @MattK187 for the find.
