GTA V has tipped over the $1bn mark in just three days of being on sale, becoming the fastest ever entertainment property to reach the landmark.
Just yesterday we brought you the news that the day one sales hit a record-breaking high of £800m and it seems that despite stock shortages, that figure is climbing yet higher...
Well that really didn’t take very long. GTA V’s nearest sales competitor, Call of Duty Black Ops 2 took a comparatively huge 15 days to reach the billion mark.
"Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon and Rockstar Games continues to redefine what can be achieved in interactive entertainment," said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two. "We are incredibly proud of the extraordinary critical and commercial response to Grand Theft Auto V."
I must admit I haven’t even got around to picking my copy up yet, and many of us are waiting for the inevitable PC release, so this figure could get significantly higher.
Any of you consoles not picked GTA V up yet, if not, why?
