Chart Topping GTA V Smashes All Records

Released on Tuesday 17th September, ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ makes a stunning debut at the top of the All Formats Chart this week, breaking all records to become the fastest selling game ever. (3DS, Grand Theft Auto V, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Good job Rockstar. Absolutely loving GTA V. On another note, it's good to see TLOU up by +536% to get back into the No.3 spot, I wonder if this is due to the DLC announcement due this week.

That's awesome for TLOU.
I wonder if GTA V would make any sense with Nintendo Wii U fanbase?

Most likely not totally different demographic anyhow, good to see Rockstar topping the charts they definitely deserve all the success. ;)

LOL WUT

6 disagrees

I guess that's all the answer I ever need.

You're assuming Wii u owners are as narrow minded as PS360 owners like yourself.

Personally, I hate to limit myself so I own all systems and enjoy all types of games. I just finished TLOU last night and will pick up GTA V after I finish Wind Waker HD.

@ Whymii

Why are you so defensive and offended?

I own multiple console platforms myself.
And to not be able to play some games on a particular platform makes me consider and buy another particular system because that is the sensible thing to do.

Glad to know Wii U fans buy PS3 consoles then.

No need to get so personal and attack me for just asking a simple open question.

I aske dthat question because I heard there is no GTA V on the Wii U. What is so hurting about that question?

You have been reported for personal attack and being offensive.

Personal attack. Wow. I'm sure you'll live to post another day.

My post is in response to why would someone assume anything about the preferences of a console owner. Generalisations are dangerous and invariably wrong. It's like saying I wonder if Mario makes sense to Xbox or Halo makes sense to PS3 players. It's not like they have a choice in the matter. Any unbiased game player recognises a good game regardless of the system. To state otherwise is bigoted and condescending.

Thanks for the bubble down, I'm sure it makes you feel better about yourself.

Really? I was expecting maturity and level headedness from a real multiple console gamer.

Was really hoping I can get a decent, civilized, productive discussion from Nintendo fans. As usual instead its mud slinging and immature personal attacks and bad language.

This is just sad.
Oh well I'll just shake my head and walk away.

You seem to confuse condescending with maturity and of course attack is the best defense for some.

My experience is that if you bait the hook for flathead, then that's what you'll get. Maybe next time you are seeking mature discourse about games you should start by opening in a mature and less arrogant and condescending tone. Good luck with that...

So much they got right with this, and so very few things that are "wrong".

This game truly is a masterpiece of this current generation of video games.

greeaat success!

This is a great indicator that consoles are more than relevant in the age of mobile. These kinds of record busting numbers suggest that people still want that AAA experience that cannot be reproduced on phones and tablets. Next gen may be the most successful generation that sees an expansion of the console market and synergies between consoles and mobile.

All consoles have to do is work with the Mobil gaming, IMO it's impossible for consoles to compete against Mobil it's just not fair at all.. Their is plenty of room for both and now with what ps vita tv brings to the table and smart glass it's best to just work with it and expand console into the Mobil. Gta5 is doing some simple things with the Ifruit app but it goes to show the possibilities..
buynit  +   373d ago
Wait... If it broke all records then how is it 10th and 11th on consoles? Did other games sell more on launch day or not?
