Grand Theft Auto V is now the fastest-selling video game in history. Where it took the previous record-holder, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, a full 15 days to reach $1 billion in sales, GTA V needed just three days...

That is huge! And it might be the first time that I've been interested enough in the franchise to consider buying a copy. I would just prefer that on PC.

No movies come close because if you think about it, a game costs 60USD where as a movie would be 12USD on average. That equates to less then 25% cost per unit for the movie.

My explanation is.......americans
Come on now your US hate is getting away with you, stores all over the U.K and other places were opening at midnight to allow earliest access and were packed. Hell the U.K. alone bought around 1.6 million copies on the first day, yet your response is "americans" how blind is your hipster hatred?

It's actually a pretty good game regardless of platform. I do agree that It would had hit the billion faster if there was a pc version on day one.

I don't think this record is going to be beat anytime soon.
I wouldn't hold my breath. This record will probably be history before we even wipe the crap from our eyes. They said the same about COD MW, COD BO/2, GTA IV and the list goes on...

@ Skidmarksdelux : RockStar deserves all the success in the world. They actually spend years developing every detail in a game, unlike Activision rehashing the same game every year. Heck I remember a RockStar clip with employees arguing over whose tree was better. My only issue is having to wait for PC release on a series that began on PC. I remember wasting life away on GTA and London 1969/61, then GTA 2... It wasn't until Sony through heaps of cash at them for a PS2 exclusive (GTA 3).

Me too. The GTA franchise has always been and will always be my favorite, even if it ceases to exist I'll always remember it with fondness and the hours, nay months I spent playing them all.
