GTA: San Andreas breaks UK record

The PS2 sequel to the top selling game Grand Theft Auto, San Andreas, sold in its release weekend 677,000 units in the United Kingdom! That is by far the record for a game release in the queen’s island (the old record was from GTA: Vice City, with 250,000).

In gross revenue terms, the game would have generated around UKP 24 million in the UK alone over the weekend, and projected across the world that figure could be as much as UKP 106 million, or put in international currency terms, $195.5 million or 153.97 Euro. Put in context, if a movie were to gross that much at the box office, it would instantly be classed among the all-time greats – that’s how big Rockstar’s game has become.
