According to a report from VG24/7 today, EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich said he expects "GTA V" to be the number one selling game of the year.
"We are nearly there already, but by the end of 2013, more revenue will be generated through the consumption of digitally purchased software and micro-transactions than physically purchased software.
"We've all seen this trend coming and it should be no surprise on its eventual occurrence, but we suspect that 2013 will be the year that digital revenues surpass physical revenues in the Western Markets," Divnich said.
He also went on to say he believes it will be the biggest seller among all games during the years 2012 and 2013.
"It goes without saying that GTA V will be one of the year’s biggest releases, but I will take it one step farther and say GTA V will be 2012′s biggest release.
"Don’t get me wrong, Call of Duty will undoubtedly be huge, as it is every year and it may even grow, but if I had to call what will be a photo finish race, I will go with GTA V," Divnich said.
"Grand Theft Auto V" releases this coming spring.
