Grand Theft Auto V becomes fastest-selling game of all time

Hit video game Grand Theft Auto V has become the fastest-selling entertainment product of all time - beating any other game or film in sales - its creator has said.

The latest edition of GTA sold more than $1bn (€730m) worth of copies in just three days since its global launch on Tuesday.

 

It has received rave reviews from critics across the board who have labelled it "one of the very best video games ever made".

 

A statement from Take-Two Interactive Software said: "Grand Theft Auto V, the critically acclaimed latest release from the iconic interactive entertainment series, has achieved worldwide retail sales of more than 1 billion dollars during its first three days on sale, according to company estimates.

 

"We believe this marks the fastest that any entertainment property, including video games and feature films, has reached this significant milestone."
