GTA V Hits 29 Million Sales In Six Weeks

GTA V Hits 29 Million Sales In Six Weeks. 20-NINE MILLION.

Grand Theft Auto V has officially hit "preposterous" levels of financial success: Rockstar has sold-in close to 29 million copies of their latest open-world monstrosity, the corporate overlords at Take-Two announced today.

29 million. Twenty-nine million. I'll let you stop and pick your jaw up off the floor now.

(Note: "sold-in" means they sold the games to stores, not necessarily to customers. Take-Two isn't saying how many copies they sold to human beings. (We asked.))

Rockstar says that the game has exceeded "the lifetime sell-in of Grand Theft Auto IV on console in less than six weeks after launch."


    Shipped is one thing.. Come on to Rickie, human sales please.

    I predicted a total of 40 million worldwide lifetime sales. But with the inevitable next gen versions next year and the PC version. Could be more like 60 million.... Dizzy Stuff.

      I remember reading an interview with one of the publishers, he was not nearly as optimistic as you and pointed out that sales would be highly front-loaded. I dunno, we'll see I guess.

    Hm. I wonder if they'll make a sequel...


      Why? So they can make even more money from the franchise? pfffft yeah right what company would ever want to do that. :P

    According to the game has sold 23.5 million copies to gamers.

      I wouldn't trust, their "all time sales" table is ridiculously incorrect. You're actually better off checking the references of the Wikipedia (gasp!) list of video game sales.
