GTA V becomes fastest selling game in the UK…. ever!

September 25th, 2013 by bash Comments


Rockstar’s critically acclaimed GTA V has becoming the fastest-selling game of all time in the UK.

Storming to the top of the sales charts this past week, it amassed an amazing 89 percent of sales for the week.

GTA V also becomes the overall 24th biggest selling title of all time in the UK, selling more in its launch week than all other GTA titles combined, and besting previous launch week record holder Call of Duty: Black Ops by almost a quarter of a million units.

On the individual platforms the game is even bigger, becoming the 11th biggest on Xbox 360 and 10th biggest on PlayStation 3 after just five days on sale. The split of sales between platforms is fairly even, with 57 percent on Xbox 360 and 43 percent on PS3.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
