Time for Grand Theft Auto V to take its place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
When Rockstar's latest masterful achievement launched, it was reported that the game generated over $800 million in just 24 hours and over $1 billion in three days. And although publisher Take-Two Interactive hasn't disclosed the exact unit sales, Guinness "worked directly with Rockstar Games on obtaining the figures" (as cited by GameSpot ).
The exact numbers? GTAV sold 11.21 million copies in that initial 24-hour stretch, which resulted in $815.7 million in total revenue. This makes it the best selling video game of all time in a one-day period. However, it's interesting to note that Take-Two wouldn't confirm the statistics, saying they "can't verify the accuracy" and they have yet to comment on GTAV's performance thus far.
Well, it's safe to assume we'll learn all about it when Take-Two presents their quarterly results in a few weeks time.
