LOS ANGELES, CA – Someone’s going to have to make a big trip to the bank this weekend for a big ol’ deposit. Sales for the latest Grand Theft Auto video game are in, and they made a killing!

‘Grand Theft Auto V’ went on sale on Tuesday, and by Friday it racked in $1 billion.

In fact, more than 8,000 stores in the U.S. held midnight openings just to meet the demand.

Fun fact: the original version of the game came out 16 years ago. And with the amount of money rolling in now, we’re sure its creators are having one heck of a sweet 16!
