GTA V is a resounding success

I don't think there is anyone out there who expected Grand Theft Auto V to be anything other than a massive success. And true to form, the numbers are in for the first day of GTA V sales and sales for the game have broken records for publisher Take-Two Interactive.

GTA V racked up $800 million in sales globally during the first 24 hours of availability.  That figure makes GTA V the most successful member of the Grand Theft Auto franchise in the first 24 hours of availability.
 
The game launched on September 17 for the PS3 and the Xbox 360.


"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," said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two.

The game was developed by Rockstar North and published by Take-Two Interactive. GTA V also has access to Grand That Auto Online, which is an open world game set to launch on October 1, 2013. Access to the online world is included with the game purchase.

I am. I'm calm. I'm picturing a rose garden, a light breeze, sunshine... a butterfly landing on the nose of a dead hooker.
