Take-Two Interactive has announced that GTA 5 has raked in $800 million on its first day of launch. This currently makes it the biggest gaming blockbuster of this generation.

There were midnight launches held all over the world and even in India it became a huge success. The series does not need any introduction either and considering the swathes of people who lined up for the game, the quality was apparent.

“All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto V,” said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. “Once again, the team at Rockstar Games have outdone themselves, setting the entertainment industry’s new standard for creativity, innovation and excellence.

“We are incredibly proud of Rockstar Games’ creative achievement and could not be more pleased with the success of this launch. Fiscal year 2014 is off to a great start.”

The game is now out on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
