Yes, the digital era is essentially upon us. Get used to it.

Take-Two Interactive's quarterly results aren't too shabby, and it's due in large part to booming digital sales. The reported earnings for the period ending June 30 shows a 128% year-over-year growth in digitally delivered content, which ultimately accounted for over half (52%) of the total net revenue.

It also helped that the critically acclaimed Bioshock Infinite shipped 4 million copies and is expected to become the best-selling title in the vaunted franchise. Borderlands 2 has shipped 7 million units to date, and Grand Theft Auto IV and NBA 2K13 continue to pull their weight. The company posted a net revenue of $144.3 million, compared to the $226.1 million it posted last year. There's an overall loss of $47.1 million but that's better than the $98.8 million loss from 2012.

The loss was partly due to a title in development at 2K Games; they've spent $29.6 million on it and we wonder what it is… It seems like quite the blockbuster. Said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick:

"Our better-than-expected first quarter results demonstrate that the market remains strong for the highest-quality interactive entertainment. We continue to benefit from robust demand for our recent genre-leading releases, iconic catalog titles and growing portfolio of innovative digitally delivered offerings."

If you've forgotten, Grand Theft Auto V explodes onto the scene on September 17. Talk about a cash cow!

I have 100 share of TTWO, here's hoping GTAV makes the stock soar! It went to $27+/- when 4 came out, granted EA made a bid to buy them then, fingers crossed the stock doesn't need EA or Activision manipulating the price this time.

wonder what that game is.
hope its agent, but thats becoming about as likely as the last guardian ever seeing the light of day so……….
or maybe its the new game R* north are working on, the manager of my local EB was talking with me the other day saying GTAV wont be getting a next gen release because they already have another game in development to take its place.
not agent though as its multiplatform, unless $onys given up the rights to that like they did LA Noire.

Take Two just got a little bit more money from me, because they had the Ultimate Edition of Max Payne 3 on sale through PS Plus for a ridiculous price, and I couldn't pass it up.

I wanted to play that game sooner, but couldn't justify buying it at launch, since I haven't played any of the old Max Payne games.
