Grand Theft Auto 5 publisher Take-Two Interactive tallied $800 million in sales on the game's first day of release, the company announced today.

That's the highest launch-day revenue of any GTA game and any game in Take-Two history, according to internal estimates. Grand Theft Auto 5 launched yesterday, Sept. 17, on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 worldwide, except in Japan and Brazil, where it will be released soon.

Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 currently holds the record as the entertainment release that was the quickest to reach the $1 billion mark — last November, Black Ops 2 grossed $1 billion within 15 days of launch, one day faster than 2011's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and two days faster than the 2009 film Avatar.

"All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto 5. 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, in a press release today. According to Take-Two, more than 8,300 stores in North America held midnight openings for Grand Theft Auto 5.

The game is available in a standard edition for $59.99, a Special Edition for $79.99 and a GameStop-exclusive Collector's Edition for $149.99. Take-Two did not release a figure for the total number of copies of Grand Theft Auto 5 that have been sold so far.

Even crazier when considering that even the Avengers could only gross 200.000.000 in one weekend.

This is going to be the mentality from now on: "Well, they already made 750 million, time to pirate it."

well, movie tickets don't cost $60 and don't have special (+$20) and collectors(+$90) editions to add to those sales figures and never underestimate the power of delivery and lazy people like me

GTA 4 First week sales was something like $900 Million I think, don't quote me on that I think it was a week. So for this to sell just 100M under than in just one day is.. damn... That would mean they are probably going to make $2 Billion at the least by the end of the week  :lol:

Those are not actual sales figures.

They are an estimate of the total amount of copies they've distributed and the net worth of them which includes the stock purchased by retail stores.

 

It even states directly in the article that they have not released any sales figures, they are simply estimates.


You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Users cannot, and will not securely manage key material. Most users can't and the ones that can, wont.

Ask me about Bitcoin, Litecoin, Crypto-Currencies, and/or Mining them.
