Unsurprisingly, Grand Theft Auto V has been recorded as the best-selling title over a 24-hour period of all time.
GameSpot are citing Guinness World Records who claim that Grand Theft Auto V sold 11.21 million copies during its first 24 hours on sale, taking in $815.7 million. However Take-Two Interactive has only confirmed $800 million in 24 hours and $1 billion in three days.
A Guinness rep says the company’s records team worked directly with Rockstar Games on obtaining the figures, but Take-Two say the numbers in the announcement “didn’t come from the group and can’t verify its accuracy.”
That’s besides the point, the point is that GTA V sold like milk and bread at release.
