GTA 5 is set to break the UK video game sales record, with retailers allocated a huge 3 million copies for day one, a retail source has told CVG.

Retail stock of three million units gives Rockstar's sequel the ability to easily eclipse UK launch sales of Activision's Black Ops 2, which shifted a huge 1.4 million copies in a single day.

Grand Theft Auto 4 only managed a comparatively feeble 630,000 copies during its first 24 hours, but remember that the PS3 and Xbox 360 user base was smaller back in 2008.

Rockstar is yet to comment.

GTA 5 will launch on September 17 for Xbox 360 and PS3.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Three million copies available for launch is a staggering figure, but we can't imagine the game will actually sell out.

Dunno weather to pre order or go for midnight launch at asda the atmosphere was great when all the nerds filled the isles of asda for GTA IV buying Doritos, coke and mars bars and having arguments about PS3 or Xbox plus got it £10 cheaper then and didn't have to rely on delivery for that morning.

Sounds like I should pick a Pre-order retailer soon instead of waiting closer till launch, just in case pre orders do fill up. But i suppose I have time still.
