GTA V Within Striking Distance of Becoming the ‘Best Selling Game of All Time’

Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V has sold more than 3.6 million copies in the UK, according to CVG, and is poised to take the crown for the best-selling game of all time.

The game generated $800 million in worldwide sales in a single day at launch, with revenues reaching $1 billion after just three days at retail. By the time early November rolled around, Grand Theft Auto V was on its way to becoming the best-selling console game of all time, with about 29 million copies sold into retail.

Future sales are expected to be driven by the release of additional DLC and the long-rumored PC version of the game.

Currently the best selling game of all time is Mario Kart Wii, at 34 million units.

Sales figures for GTA V were provided as part of a 2013 preliminary report by the Entertainment Retailers Association.

    Spending years making quality games, ignoring investment firms on delays, ignoring them for releasing games late rather then rush release a broken product has worked wonders for Rockstar.
