GTA V sells 1.57 million units, now fastest selling title in UK history

Rockstar's GTA V sold 1.57 million units on its first day at retail according to a report on Gi.biz.

The game, which is now the UK's fastest selling title in history, sold over 1.57 million units on its first day, according to GfK Chart-Track. Thanks to these sales the game has generated revenues of £65 million across the PS3 and Xbox 360 releases in the UK alone.

That puts GTA V above Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops which sold 1.41 million units and generated £58 million in November 9, 2010.

Incredibly these figures are for the UK alone with Take Two still to reveal the global figures for the game.

Now imagine the game got a PS4, PC and Xbox One release sometime next year, you can almost smell the pound signs.

We'll bring you our review of GTA V soon.

I fail to smell any pound sings if GTAV was released on both the PS4 and X1 next year. The install base wont be jack, and of those that own either of those consoles how many are interested in GTA? How many of those that own either/both of those consoles who bought the game already are willing to buy it again? I personally can't see a next gen version of GTA V happening at all. GTA Online maybe, but not the full game. Back on topic those numbers are well deserved. GTA V is fantastic

GTA V would easily sell well on PS4 and Xbox One. Eventually people will want the new console, and not many of them will keep current console so will likely buy it again, and even those who still have it will probably buy it again because it would likely be a much better version. I have no doubt at all that GTA V will release on PC, X1 and PS4 at some point.
