The arrival of Grand Theft Auto V on PS4 and Xbox One today will make the game the biggest selling video game in UK history.
GTA V launched last year and is currently the second most successful video game of all time – a feat it managed in less than a year. However, despite selling almost 4m copies, it has not managed to topple the UK’s current record holder: 2010’s Call of Duty: Black Ops.
MCV understands that GfK Chart-Track will combine the game’s PS4 and Xbox One sales with the PS3 and Xbox 360 SKUs, which means that the title will almost certainly overtake Black Ops to take the crown as the UK’s best-selling title – if not this week, then in the weeks building-up to Christmas.
The data is based on GfK Chart-Track data and ERA reports.
