According to the NPD Group's August 2017 analysis for video game sales in North America, Grand Theft Auto V is now the region's best selling game of all time. Today's accomplishment for Rockstar comes nearly four years after the game first released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

"In addition, Grand Theft Auto V is the all-time best-selling game by both revenue and units in tracked sales across PC, console, and portable with digital and packaged combined."
