Wow that's confidence.

Wow.

"To break even, Activision would have to sell about 15 million to 16 million units of a $60 game, analysts said."

Ok this is clearly impossible (or rather extremely unlikely), so I have to ask where they expect the rest of the money is going to come from.

You are going to be gouged on DLC, I guarantee it.

Don't you mean we? :)

It looks like GTA V has sold ~30 million copies, so not out of the question. But, ambitious to be sure.

A bigger risk...what if gaming undergoes some revolutionary change in, say, 4 years? I wonder how much flex Bungie has built in? A ton, I guess. But as an engineering consideration...wowza.
