GTA V UK sales bigger than Battlefield, FIFA, Call of Duty, Batman, Pokemon and Assassin’s Creed combined

We all know Grand Theft Auto V was bigger than anything ever. Made more money than any entertainment property, and sold 2m units in the UK alone in just a week.

But sometimes we must acknowledge that numbers and statements like that are hard to truly understand. What does ‘biggest ever’ actually mean?

Well, here is our handy comparison to how big GTA V was back in mid September.

GTA V’s week one sales were ever so slightly higher than the week one sales of Call of Duty: Ghosts, FIFA 14, Batman: Arkham Origins, Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Battlefield 4, put together.

To put that in handy maths form you are looking at:

Grand Theft Auto V Week One sales = FIFA 14 week one + Call of Duty: Ghosts week one + Battlefield 4 week one + Pokemon X and Y week one + Assassin’s Creed IV week One + Batman week one.
