Sales Record Broken in UK: Grand Theft Auto V
CVG is reporting that record breaking pre-sales for Grand Theft Auto V has occurred in the United Kingdom in numbers totaling around 3 million.
Now granted, these are pre-order numbers and some are likely to be canceled. If only half of their current pre-orders pick up their game (1.5 million), this sets the stage for GTA V to surpass the current best selling game, Call of Duty: Black Ops by Activision (which had a 1.4 million sold in one day).
It is not known how many of these numbers are for PS3 or Xbox 360 at this time. Grand Theft Auto V is set to be released globally for both consoles September 17, 2013.
