Grand Theft Auto 4 has broken the Guiness World Record for Highest Entertainment Earner Within 24 Hours
after its worldwide released generated more than US$310 million dollars with 3.6 million units sold. The previous high earner was last year's Halo 3 which came in at US$170 million dollars which topped the next previous, the film Spider-Man 3 (it made US$60 million).
Released worldwide on April 29, the latest in the long-running GTA series sparked some controversy in Australia after it was revealed the game had been edited for local release. This hasn't seemed to have slowed interest in the game though, which should be letting Rockstar Australia breathe a sigh of relief.
