Rockstar Games this week said Grand Theft Auto V for Sony Corp.’s Playstation 3, Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360, and the PC has shipped 29 million units at global retail.
The title generated $800 million in the first 24 hours of sale in global retail.

Each of the three main characters holds specific attributes. Michael is an ex-bank robber who can slow down time to target during gun fights, Franklin is hired muscle who can drive and take sharp corners with a similar slow down technique, and Trevor is a loose cannon that can fly into a rage to take less damage and perform a unique melee attack.
