Well, it helps that the game already sold over 4 million copies heading into its re-release.

According to Chart-Track , Grand Theft Auto V has claimed the crown for being the best-selling video game in UK history.

Rockstar's magnum opus dispatched the previous reigning king, Call of Duty: Black Ops . Obviously, it didn't take very long, either. GTAV already sold a ton last year when it first launched and now, after it becomes available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the game reaches new sales heights. If you haven't played the game yet, we say you're doing yourself a grave disservice .

In other UK sales news, Far Cry 4 debuted at #2 and Dragon Age: Inquisition sold almost exactly the same number of units as Dragon Age II out of the gate.

I presume that is counting the sales of the re-release only? If that count both last years release with this years releases as one that would be rather cheeky. I feel no urge to go back to GTA5 myself, I was content with the experience on PS3.
