The NPD Group has released their estimates for August 2017 along with a very interesting announcement. It seems that Grand Theft Auto V has become the best selling tracked video game in history.
That claim comes with a couple of caveats, though. The NPD only tracks sales within the United States and the organization does not have access to details regarding the game’s digital sales.
That does not take away from Grand Theft Auto V’s impressive accomplishment. The game launched back in 2013 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. “Grand Theft Auto V has now been on the market 49 months and has achieved 41 Top 10 chart appearances, 16 more times than any other single title in reported history,” noted Mat Piscatella of the NPD Group.
