Grand Theft Auto V, which was developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games, made $815.7 million in its first day, and it broke six other records. The game was released on PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles.
In relation to the today’s announcement, Guinness World Records’ editor-in-chief Craig Glenday said, “Gaming is no longer a niche hobby, as GTA 5 has proved, and how exciting that it's taken on the might of Hollywood and won!” Grand Theft Auto V broke seven records, which are listed below:
Our TakeGrand Theft Auto V is the last and greatest commercial bang of this console generation. For a game that was only released on two consoles, Grand Theft Auto V speaks volumes about the profit that can still be made in this industry, and, I might add, that a game can have a long development cycle and still make a whole lot of moolah.

I personally do not support this type of game, but a congratulates is in order, not a bad way to close up this last generation :-)
Rockstar has once again showed the world their mastery! I hope they bring this to PC or next gen thru Gaiki or something because I traded in my PS3 to help fund the PS4. Rockstar please port your game to more consoles and to PC.
Superb game, well deserved.
7 records broken huh? I wonder if Rockstar will have a celebration party? Lord knows they could put on quite the show.
