Red Dead Redemption was met with nearly universal critical acclaim, but it appears that its success carried over to retail shelves as well. In a financial results statement released by Take-Two Interactive this week, the company revealed that the title has already sold more than five million units. Any game that pushes five million copies is doing something right, but the fact that RDR did it in three weeks with essentially a new IP is especially of note.

In other "Rockstar is doing just fine" news, the same statement notes that Grand Theft Auto IV has sold over 17 million units to date.
