GTA 5 Smashes $1 Billion in Sales


Everyone knew that Grand Theft Auto V was going to be popular, but cracking $1 billion in sales in just three days popular? Woah!

Today Take-Two Interactive (Rockstar Games' parent company) announced that based on internal numbers, it estimates that sales of GTA 5 surpassed $1 billion during the first three days it was available at retail stores (ie from September 17 to September 19).

TTWO also say that GTA V reached the impressive milestone in the fastest amount of time ever for a video game. This is probably correct considering that it took Call of Duty: Black Ops II a whole 15 days to get to $1 billion.

It's also not surprising that the number was smashed in only three days given that $800 million worth of sales were done on the release date! Is there anyone out there reading this who doesn't own a copy of GTA V yet!?

PS: We know that many of you are anxiously waiting for the invincibility and weapons cheats to be posted in addition to what we already have. We're still working on it (along with everyone else) and will post them right here on the front page as soon as they are found, as well as to our Facebook and Google+ channels.

  1. Is there a program I can use to generate all possible button combinations on the PS3 (minus select, start and ps button) so I can start randomly testing combinations as well?

  2. But answer my question: But in this game (GTA 5) is being so much difficult, also from the others GTA games? Do you ( if you are working on it ) or if other one can answer me, or if you know, after trying some combinations, the combinations will decrease right? So how is this remaining cheats of GTA 5? they will be cracked here soon? Or you think that will be need a long time more?

  3. Yes i know that you are working hard on the cheats, thanks for the update! And changing the question, GTA V will be on the next guinnes world! But the game deserves this and rockstar too for this great game.

      1. But tell why its so difficult to crack some cheats? Rockstar, some time before spoke that are cheats of GTA SA that aren't discovered yet, and how is the progress of this remaining cheats, if you or someone can answer me? Thanks!

      2. Cheats are buried in the games coding and they need to be extracted. But the button combinations are just there in the files for you to just see. You have to be intelligent enough to sort through the coding and find the combinations.
        GTA:SA for example, had over 200,000 button combinations but only 91 cheats. Only 91 of those 200,000 button combinations actually worked. So it takes a lot of time to find the button combos and then figure out which ones actually work.

      3. But there not other way? Only sort trough the coding combinations? There's not a way to see the combinations in the files, to get it in them?

      4. You can see the combinations in the files but there's probably thousands to go through that don't work and only a few that do. The only way to sort through it is to hook up a controller to the computer in a special way and use software to rapidly cycle through the combinations. Finding the right button combo is hard. It's not meant to be easy. The cheats are hidden. They're not being given to us. IT'S GONNA BE HARD, so no, there's no other way, no easier way. Getting through coding is difficult, mate. You need to be patient.

      5. Entrep and others are working on it. It takes time. Either start putting in random button combos yourself and try find out or please be patient. We aren't Gods and we aren't game coders. This can take anywhere from a week to a year. San Andreas cheats were still being discovered an entire year after it was released. This game is even harder to crack.

      6. Contacting a gamer coder is useless, dude. Not all games are coded the same. Not all game coders understand all game code. There's no simple solution to this, so you're just going to have to wait.

      7. Ok! I'm trying to help too, and you're right, this things are difficult and we need to be patience, the combinations are very complex and sometimes irritate us! But if have enough people helping on this, i'm sure that we will get the cheats soon, but we need to work hard!

      8. But in this game (GTA 5) is being so much difficult, also from the others GTA games?
