GTA V Sales Over $1 Billion
Take-Two officially announced that Grand Theft Auto V has made over $1 Billion in retail sales since releasing only 3 days ago. In an announcement, Take-Two said: â€œWe believe this marks the fastest that any entertainment property, including video games and feature films, has reached this significant milestoneâ€.
The CEO of Take-Two, Strauss Zelnick said:
“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”.
Many analysts predicted that Grand Theft Auto V would reach the $1 billion mark in its first month, however I doubt they expected it to reach this target within days. Seeing as $800 million was made in its first day, it’s hard to see the GTA V phenomenon slowÂ down anytime soon, especially with Grand Theft Auto OnlineÂ arriving soonÂ in October.
Even our own SlasherJPC has a few things to say about GTA V’s absolutely crazy sales. According to him, it’s reallyÂ cray-cray!
