To no one's surprise, Grand Theft Auto V sold a whole lot of copies on launch day--which was yesterday in case you've already forgotten--raking in a whopping $800 million in its first 24 hours.
Take-Two announced the news earlier today, noting that this marks "the highest first day retail sales of any title in the history of the company and the Grand Theft Auto series." That's quite an accomplishment if I do say so myself.
Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick went on to add:
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.What do you think of GTA V thus far?
