grandtheftauto5Looks like the fictional LA of Los Santos left Call Of Duty and Superman in the dust. First-day sales of Grand Theft Auto V pulled in a record $800 million worldwide, according to publisher Take-Two Interactive. Released Tuesday, the latest version of the ultra-violent franchise soundly beat previous first-day record holder Call Of Duty: Black Ops II, which sold $500M on its first day last November. GTAThe GTA V result already sets it in front of Man Of Steel, which, with a worldwide haul of $663 million, is the No. 3 biggest movie of 2013 so far. “We are incredibly proud of Rockstar Games’ creative achievement and could not be more pleased with the success of this launch,” said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick in an understatement today. The last GTA release was back in 2008 when the fourth installment saw a staggered release around the world. By the way, that $800 million worldwide figure for GTA V doesn’t include big video game markets Japan and Brazil, where the game has yet to street.
