In just three weeks of UK sales, Grand Theft Auto 5
has sold more copies than Grand Theft Auto 4
has in nearly five years of lifetime sales. The staggering statistics come courtesy of UK figure-gatherers Chart Track, who report GTA 5
is already the country's 12th biggest-selling game of all time.
To reiterate, this stat applies to UK sales. Still, with global sales surpassing $1 billion
in the first three days, UK sales at 2.25 million copies
in the first week, and now this, Rockstar is probably feeling okay about keeping the game on current-gen platforms (for now).
