Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Reports Strong Results for Fiscal Second Quarter 2014
  • Launched Grand Theft Auto V worldwide on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The title received extraordinary reviews, including over 160 perfect scores worldwide, and already has sold-in nearly 29 million units, exceeding the lifetime sell-in of Grand Theft Auto IV on console in less than six weeks after launch. We believe Grand Theft Auto V is the fastest-selling entertainment release in history*, grossing over $800 million in retail sales during the first 24 hours after launch and over $1 billion in only three days. Grand Theft Auto V became available for digital download through the PlayStation Network on the day of release and became the biggest release ever on the platform. In addition, the Games on Demand release of the title on Xbox LIVE became the highest grossing day 1 and week 1 release in the platform’s history.

Holy shit in about 2 months!!

Very well deserved this game is fantastic and although the online was a bit rough the single player alone is worth the $60 and damn at the GOD on xbox, people probably double dipped on that one.

Also? Next Gen Read Dead Please!!

29 million "sold in" is not the same thing as "sold." Sold in means sold to stores so that's just a fancy way of saying they've shipped 29 million copies, which is still quite a bit.

Yeah fo sho - still a wild number considering they will be shipping and selling GTAVs for the next 5 years.

Good for Rockstar, great developer.

Also, you're definitely getting Red Dead again. The last one was a good seller for them.

Especially if they do a next gen version too (which I think is likely, if not this spring down the road with DLC as a Ultimate version).

Now if they would just put it out on PC that would make it at least 29 000 001.

Oh there will no doubt be a next-get version. Man. Seriously. So many copies sold. And then there's the PC version too. They'll be able to pay for all 2k development for the next decade :P

Which is awesome and will allow 2k to continue to be a publisher willing to take risks and their sweet time with games.

Yep. Super excited to see their new IPs in the next-gen and (of course) Red Dead 3. They're easily my favourite publisher.
