Take-Two's GTA V Surpasses $1 Billion in Sales

Quicker than a desperately fleeing criminal, Take-Two Interactive's (NASDAQ: TTWO  ) Grand Theft Auto V has racked up worldwide sales of more than $1 billion, according to the company. In a press release trumpeting the news, the firm said it believes this is the fastest that any entertainment property -- including feature films -- has crossed that level.

GTA V, the latest title in Take-Two's storied video-game series, was released this past Tuesday. At the moment, it is available in versions for Sony's (NYSE: SNE  ) PlayStation 3 console system and Microsoft's Xbox 360. Due to its frequently violent, adult-themed content, it is rated "M" (Mature) by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
