‘Grand Theft Auto V’ sales surpass $1B mark in its first 3 days

NEW YORK — Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. said retail sales of its “Grand Theft Auto V” video game surpassed $1 billion in its first three days, hitting that mark faster than any other game or movie.

The New York-based company said. “Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” from Activision Blizzard Inc., took 15 days in 2012, while the Walt Disney Co. film “Marvel’s The Avengers” made it in 19 days.

The game went on sale Tuesday, and first-day sales topped $800 million. Take-Two stock fell 2.5 percent to $16.99 Friday. The shares have advanced 54 percent this year.
