Take-Two announced today that Grand Theft Auto V made approximately $800 million in worldwide sales in just its first day on the market, making it the highest first day retail sales in the company's history.
While these are worldwide sales, it should be noted that Japan or Brazil has not yet had the privilage of a Grand Theft Auto V launch.
The general consensus on Grand Theft Auto V is that it is truly a fantastic, in-depth gaming experience, and we've heard numerous outlets call it one of the best gaming experiences of all time.
The previous record belonged to Call of Duty: Black Ops II with $500 million. Kudos, Rockstar Games.
