GTAV Becomes Fastest Selling Video Game In UK History

Grand Theft Auto V has become the fastest selling videogame in UK history, it has been revealed.

Chart Track data shows GTA V sold a staggering 1.57m units during its first 24 hours on sale, breaking the previous record set by Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, which managed a mere 1.41m when it launched in November 2010.

These sales figures mean Rockstar have generated upwards of £65m in revenue on the £170m game so far. The numbers also mean that in its opening 24 hours, GTA V made more money than the entirety of the boxed retail games market for the previous two months.
