GRAND THEFT AUTO V Earns Over $800 Million in One Day

by     Posted 337 days ago


Five years after the release of Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar Games’ highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V finally launched yesterday to record-breaking numbers and almost universally positive reviews.  The game brought in over $800 million in its first day of release, which breaks the previous day one record of $500 million in sales held by 2012’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II.  That game went on to take in over $1 billion in its first 15 days of release, so GTA V is expected to be insanely profitable despite its reported $240 million budget.  We’ll see if that record holds when Call of Duty: Ghosts is released on all platforms this November, but right now Grand Theft Auto V looks to be a massive success all around.  Click here to buy GTA V on Amazon.

    Won’t come close. It’ll do more than 500 but will not be able to touch this. I know players who don’t play Call of Duty but whom play GTA. Hell, I know people that aren’t gamers that buy this. This series has the greatest appeal out there.

      GTA is more playable than any game out there.

      Requires little to no skill.
      You don’t need multiplayer to get the most satisfaction.
      Many different ways to enjoy the game, each a different type of game play (whether car chases, shoot ‘em up, playing crazy taxy/ambulance/vigilante, blowing stuff up, jumping vehicles off stuff, flying planes/choppers).

      People might not spend as many hours playing this as they would CoD, but it has much wider appeal than any other game.

      Yep. GTA is probably the most commercial game there is. Call of Duty comes close, but it comes out every damn year, so it’s not a huge event like GTA,which comes out every four or five years.

      Like you said, people ignore other big games like Skyrim or Mass Effect, but nobody with any interest in video games at all ignores GTA.
