GTA V reached the billion-dollar revenue milestone faster than any other entertainment product in history.
Read that again ... Not only does that make GTA the fastest game to reach that milestone, but the fastest-selling entertainment product of all time.
It took the game only three days to achieve what Avatar, no less than the most successful movie of all times, did in 17 days.
With an estimated production/marketing budget of $265 million, GTA V is not only the most expensive video game of all time, but also more expensive than most of today's Hollywood blockbusters.
The two highest-grossing movies in history, James Cameron's Titanic and Avatar, both took considerably longer to pull in one billion.
For what it's worth, I think is also says something good about the economy and disposable income.
