GTA V Breaks UK Pre-Order Records

Retail sources tell Metro UK that approximately three million copies of Rockstar’s highly anticipated video game “Grand Theft Auto V” have been ordered for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

That would be a record-breaking launch in the UK, topping the previous one held by 2010’s “Call of Duty: Black Ops” which sold 1.4 million copies in just 24 hours.

2008’s “Grand Theft Auto IV” sold 630,000 copies in its first day, although the console user base at the time was only a small fraction of the 13 million consoles currently residing in UK homes.

“FIFA 13” currently holds the title of the biggest-selling game ever in the UK with 4.5 million copies sold.
