GTA V's Popularity Remains Strong, Selling Five Million Copies In The Last Quarter

Grand Theft Auto V remains one of the most popular titles out there, even before it's upcoming next-gen release. As revealed during Take-Two Interactive's Q2 Earnings Call, the game has now sold 155 million copies since release.
