Cheats and Walkthroughs
It’s hard to nail down exact numbers when it comes to video game budgets, which is why whenever you come across a list like the following one it’s always good to remember that they are merely educated estimates. Having said that, it’s well understood that game budgets have been neck and neck with Hollywood productions for some time now, and it’s fair to say they’ll remain in that vicinity for the foreseeable future.
To that point, Digital Battle has compiled a list of the top 10 game highest game budgets ever, and while none of the figures are that surprising, they are certainly discussion worthy. Take a look:
1. Grand Theft Auto IV - $100 million
2. Gran Turismo 5 - $80 million
3. Shenmue - $70 million
4. Too Human - $60+ million
5. Metal Gear Solid 4 - $60 million
6. Halo 3 - $55 million
7. APB - $50 million
8. L.A. Noire - $50 million
9. Final Fantasy XII - $48 million
10. Killzone 2 - $45 million
Shocking? Expected? Troubling?
