Grand Theft Auto V best selling game of all time in the UK!


Grand Theft Auto V has just recently became Britain’s biggest selling game ever, beating Call of Duty: Black Ops. According to Chart-Track  GTA 5 was right behind Black Ops last year with their previous generation versions on the 360/PS3, that was until the release of the next gen versions last Tuesday.

Grand Theft Auto’s last gen versions broke records in the first week. With the game smashing the records of best selling video game in 24 hours; best selling action-adventure video game in 24 hours, fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion, fastest video game to gross $1 billion, highest grossing video game in 24 hours, highest revenue generated by an entertainment product in 24 hours and most viewed trailer for an action-adventure video game.

The records and reviews achieved have acclaimed the game as the best game ever. With ratings achieving 9/10′s, 10/10′s (with our own review being a 10!) it was certain to be classed as one of the best games in the franchise and it lived up to the hype.
