Grand Theft Auto V has made approximately US$800 million in sales worldwide in its first 24 hours on sale. The news was announced by publisher Take-Two.
Take-Two says this is “the highest first day retail sales of any title in the history of the company and the Grand Theft Auto series.”
These figures, according to Take-Two, include sales across PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in all territories, except Japan and Brazil because the game has not launched there yet.

Editors note: With figures like this, GTA V is on track to break the $1 Billion mark in a matter of days.
