Grand Theft Auto V has already sauntered past the $1 billion milestone during its first three days on sale, making it the fastest-selling game, surpassing Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which amassed $1 billion by its 15th day on sale, and The Avengers movie, which reached $1 billion in 10 days.
This actually makes GTA V not only the fastest-selling game of all-time, but the fastest-selling entertainment product of all-time. Wowzers. "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."
Meanwhile, US chat show icon Conan O'Brien has had a crack at playing Grand Theft Auto V for his Clueless Gamer show, launching a vendetta against the Vanilla Unicorn Gentlemen's Club in Los Santos. It's funny. You should watch it. It's embedded below. Down there.
