That’s not all, GTA V has also become the highest selling game of all time in UK, beating the record of Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops.

GfK Chart reveals that the difference between the sales of two titles wasn’t much, as GTA V was a huge success on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

With Xbox One and PS4 getting the title last week, the game easily managed to surpass the remaining sales difference.

PS4 took the lead on GTA V sales with 58% copies sold on the platform, while Xbox One contributed with 41%. Remaining 1% sales were attributed to Xbox 360.

Followed by GTA V is the highly anticipated sequel Far Cry 4, which according to the report had the best launch week as compared to the previous entries in the franchise.
