Grand Theft Auto V Steals UK’s Highest Grossing Game Honors
PlayStation 4 bundles featuring Grand Theft Auto V are causing excitement for this Black Friday, but the real excitement over GTA V is in the U.K.
Since the game was the U.K.'s highest grossing game of all time for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it shouldn't be surprising that CVG revealed Grand Theft Auto V is now the U.K.'s best-selling game of all time. After its recent PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release date of Nov. 18, GTA V surpassed the U.K.'s previously best selling game, Call of Duty: Black Ops.
While GTA V did debut as number one on the all formats U.K. chart this past week, it's not the only one that's worth mentioning. Also in the top five of the all formats list were Far Cry 4, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, FIFA 15, and Dragon Age: Inquisition. Funnily enough, Dragon Age: Inquisition sold almost as many copies on its launch week this year as Dragon Age II sold on its launch week in 2011. The runners up for the all formats chart are WWE 2K15 and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor while Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal didn't even find a place on the list.
Now, with the year almost at an end, the question on everyone's mind is will GTA V be pushed off of U.K.'s top list or will it remain steady in the lead?
