Hey, remember when I said GTA V made over $800 million worldwide during its first day of sales? We all thought that was incredible, but it is nothing compared to its sales as of today. Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. has just announced that GTA V has surpassed $1 BILLION in sales across the globe after a mere three days. This might be the fastest any form of entertainment, including movies, has reached that high of a number so quickly (Black Ops II used to hold this record for videogames, while The Avengers held it for films).
Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two, in an effort to try to figure out nice ways of saying, “Holy shit, we are the best and have made more money than God,” had these words to share on the title’s success:
“Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon and Rockstar Games continues to redefine what can be achieved in interactive entertainment. We are incredibly proud of the extraordinary critical and commercial response to Grand Theft Auto V.”
Incredible! GTA V is available now for the PS3 and 360 in case you have been living under a rock, and all the info you could ever want on the game can be found here. Why not pick up a copy and contribute to sales that will soon reach $1 jillion?
