What a difference a day makes

Tons of hype? Check. Rave reviews? Check. Rockstar’s latest serving of GTA has it all and now it’s god an impressive sales record.

Take-Two said Wednesday GTA V delivered the highest first-day retail sales of any title in the history of the company and the GTA series. Probably in the history of gaming then.

The first day total stands at $800+ million, yet the game did not even launch in some big markets, such as Brazil and China. Rockstar spent five years developing the game and it burned $270 million in the process. So far it seems the gamble is paying off nicely.
