Grand Theft Auto V sets 7 world records

The game, Grand Theft Auto was released on 17 September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, the fifteenth title in the Grand Theft Auto series, GTA V, was the first main release since Grand Theft Auto IV in 2008.


The critically acclaimed action-adventure video game sold 11.21 million units in its first 24 hours, and generated revenue of $815.7 million (£511.8 million), going on to reach $1 billion (£624.45 million) in sales after just three days on September 20 2013.  It was developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games.

The figures smash records previously held by the Call of Duty videogame series and blockbuster movies including The Avengers and Avatar. Below are the world records currently held by GTA V:

  1. Best-selling action-adventure videogame in 24 hours
  2. Best-selling videogame in 24 hours
  3. Fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion
  4. Fastest videogame to gross $1 billion
  5. Highest grossing videogame in 24 hours
  6. Highest revenue generated by an entertainment product in 24 hours
  7. Most viewed trailer for an action-adventure videogame

It is predicted to outsell the global music industry in a year. And other records it will probably set are the records in highest number of uncompleted school assignments and lost girlfriends.

Update: Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA V), launched today, finally.


The game made by Rockstar Game, and that have gotten much attention from customer across the globe and most especially in the United Kingdom, Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA V), was launched today. The game which was much anticipated has close to 4,000 of its stores sold the previous version worth about 125million copies across the globe prior to the release of the current version GTA V.

GTA V, the game which is about theft occurrence in the city across the major cities, and I want to believe in my own opinion, that many consumers that have played the previous version have learnt a lesson either Good or Bad based on what is reflect in the midnight launch prior to the specific time announced by Rockstar Game. Ironically, the game, GTA V and its predecessors, have several been criticised that the game incite or form part of the behaviour that is exhibited by several kids, which was reflected in scene that was acted at the Asda Supermarket, where a 23-years old man went for shopping and was attacked, stabbed and robbed of the items which he bought which includes a copy of the newly launched Grand Theft Auto V. The young man was hit with a brick on his way home from buying the game at a West London Asda store, Rockstar has not yet commented on the news, and anyone with information about the crime is urged to call Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111. Queues were forming around the country from the early evening onwards as keen consumers sought to grab the blockbuster title as soon as possible.

The new features to lookout for in the newly Launched version of the game Grand Theft Auto V are the fact that Player can see how a car is handle and/or How a gun is shot and perhaps the biggest changes in this new version is the fact that players are given three different character and not one to wreak havoc on in the city of los Santos.

Jim Sterling, the reviews editor for video game news outlet, said that developer Rockstar Games also put more emphasis on the playable characters themselves, rather than have them passively or stoically react to the world around them. “It’s more like the supporting characters react to the heroes than the other way around,” he said.

Sight and screenshot of the newly Launched Grand Theft Auto 5 was further released ahead of the launch as previously and for your appetite pending the time you get your copy of the game, it will be nice for you to check-out the video and screenshot.




GTA V: Amazon UK, shipping ahead of launch


Grand Theft Auto V, is the much eagerly anticipated game, the game which is coming on the stable on Rockstar, will officially be launch tomorrow, and quite number of customers are actually waiting to get the game as the date has been finally announced, though the company is annoyed to have heard the news, because the specified date announced is still on the way, Amazon, the online retails store and one of the major and most respected online store, has been shipping the game console ahead of the announced date. More so, the shipping is strictly the made for United Kingdom by Amazon, but the game company is still much concerned about what can prompt that to have happened and promised to look into why Amazon has to do such regardless of the company specified announced launch date which is tomorrow.

Amazon could find itself struck off Rockstar Games’ Christmas card list after it delivered Grand Theft Auto V pre-orders to customers in the UK in advance of its September 17th release. Some customers reported receiving shipping notifications over the weekend, with additional reports suggesting the game had made it to some doorsteps as early as Saturday. Games Industry says that the company is already investigating these early sales, although we wouldn’t put it past some silent, rogue type like Claude from GTA 3. Microsoft is reportedly banning Xbox Live accounts
belonging to those that shared early footage of the game, so if you did receive an early copy, make sure to refrain from sharing your impressive bank heists on social media and video sites until release day.” –
