GTA V Makes $800 Million In First Day

GTA V

Take-Two have announced that Grand Theft Auto V has generated approx. $800 million (£500 million) in sales worldwide in their first 24 hours. These figures include sales across both Xbox 360 and PS3 and in all markets around the world. A representative from Take-Two said that this marks "the highest first day retail sales of any title in the history of the comand and the Grand Theft Auto series".

All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto V. Once again, the team at Rockstar Games have outdone themselves, setting the entertainment industry's new standard for creativity, innovation and excellence. Beginning at midnight on Monday, consumers around the world gathered in anticipation to be among the first to experience the evolution of this remarkable series. In North America alone, more than 8,300 stores opened their doors at midnight to welcome fans whose loyalty and enthusiasm were rewarded with what The New York Times called 'the most immersive spectacle in interactive entertainment'. We are incredibly proud of Rockstar Games' creative achievement and could not be more pleased with the success of this launch.
- Take-Two CEO, Strauss Zelnick

They would probably claim - $4bill due to lost sales from piracy lol
Looks like its coming though, been enough code leaks ect to show that the PC version is in progress.

I cant wait to see a PC version, from what I have seen this will be epic on hardware that can run 1080p with all the details up ect

Well I'd have bought it, so assuming it was selling around the $40 mark, at least $800,000,040.
