Breaking news: GTA V is popular!

We knew Rockstar's extraordinary Grand Theft Auto V was going to be a success before it shattered day one expectations, reached $1 billion in a record three days, or claimed a bunch of Guiness world records — but even we didn't expect this bit of news so soon.

According to the financial report from Take-Two, GTA V has shipped over 29 million copies and has already eclipsed life-time sales of Grand Theft Auto IV in the six weeks since its September 17th release.

"The title received stellar reviews, shattered entertainment industry records, and has already sold-in nearly 29 million units to date," Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said. "The extraordinary success of Grand Theft Auto V illustrates the positive momentum in our business and consumers' enduring appetite for the highest-quality interactive entertainment."

Rockstar should be congratulated over the incredible success of the game, and if GTA V is any indication of what is possible on the Xbox 360, we can't wait to see what they're cooking up on Xbox One.
