‘Grand Theft Auto’ sales are absurd

Last week, Take-Two Interactive Inc. announced “Grand Theft Auto V” sold 29 million units in the six weeks since its launch. Somehow that’s not a misprint. To put it in perspective, every “Call of Duty” installment has trended toward 20 million or so lifetime sales. “GTA V” eclipsed that in six weeks. My mind exploded when I saw that so as I haphazardly stuff it back together, let’s look at the implications of this mind-boggling number.

If you’re hungering for new experiences check out the indie space, it’s the video game Mecca of innovation right now.
