For all you keeping score, that's:

GBA - 51

GCN - 30

PS2 - 137

Xbox - 45

 

FLAGSHIP (highest selling) Franchises for Platforms:

 

GTA on PS2 : 17,842,016 Units

Halo : 8,662,255 Units

Mario Titled Games on GBC: 7,508,277

 

It is impressive that Grand Theft Auto is so dominant. Sony should just buy Rockstar. It is equally impressive that a new franchise like Halo could have so much success on a brand new platform. But it is even more impressive that Nintendo can milk their Mario franchise into various sports, racing, platform, fighting, RPG, etc... genres with such success, and little burnout.

Speaking of sequels, what's interesting (to me) is that there seems to be a consistent downward trend in sales from iteration 1 to, say, iteration 3 in pretty much all series save maybe Halo, which didn't show a growth, at least.

 

This could just be due to the fact that the originals are on the market longer, but the trend is unmistakable.

The only porblem if they did that would be games as popular as GTA would become PS2 Exculsive no PC market and No Xbox market

 

I think they could still have the PC market. One big reason they woudlnt' buy rockstar is that sony probably woudlnt' be comfortable with the mature nature of the games.

I think you'll find you're wrong on that. Sony is quite happy to associate with the Rockstar game style.

 

Of course, for anyone to buy Rockstar, they have to buy it from Take Two, or buy Take Two. Take Two aren't about to sell it off as it's their major revenue stream (I believe).

Ever play a little known indie title called, God of War. ;)

And Sony showed them....and then showed them some more in GoW. Something Rockstar doesn't even do.
