GTA V becomes U.K.’s best-selling video game of all time

Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V has supplanted Call of Duty: Black Ops as the U.K.’s biggest-selling video game of all time.

The milestone was achieved following the launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One edition of the open-world adventure title, which debuted at no.1 on the U.K. All Format Chart. 

In terms of sales, the PS4 version accounted for 58 percent of all copies sold, with the Xbox One and Xbox 360 SKUs eating up 41 and one percent, respectively. 

Elsewhere, Far Cry 4 debuted in second place with the franchise’s biggest launch window sales by a comfortable margin. Dragon Age: Inquisition made the top 5 with sales mirroring that of 2011’s Dragon Age II.
