Grand Theft Auto V has sold just over 2.25m games in the UK in just five days.

Chart-Track revealed the game beat Call of Duty: Black Ops by 250,000 units. The shooter sold 2m copies in five days back in 2010.

GTA V already broke day one records, selling 1.57m in 24 hours, generating £65m.

Almost 2,000 stores opened at midnight to mark the game’s arrival.

It is also one of the most critically acclaimed game launches of all time, with a Metacritic score of 98.
