While violent to some, violent fun to others, Grand Theft Auto V dropped on Tuesday and according to the numbers, the entire planet bought the damn thing

It’s huge.

It’s made $800 million in the first 24hrs alone. That’s more first day pay cheque than even the biggest blockbuster movies.  In comparison, the Avengers – a huge critical and financial success – raked in ‘only’ 80 million on its first blockbuster day.  The blockbuster game was also reportedly the most expensive ever made, costing an estimated $115 million in production costs.

Safe to say they made their money back.
