Grand Theft Auto 5 has steam-rolled its way to the top of the UK charts in its first week, and has pulled in staggering sales. Get the full run-down here.

It’s little wonder that Rockstar North’s sprawling experience has bested the competition, seeing as it has already generated over $1 billion in worldwide sales since it launched September 17.

In it’s first day on sale in the UK, GTA 5 sold 1.57 million units, netting £65 million. It now holds the UK record for fastest selling game ever released, beating Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to the punch. By comparison, Treyarch’s shooter shifted 1.41 million units and generated £58 million in its first day on sale November 9, 2012.

Here is this week’s UK top ten:

1. Grand Theft Auto V – Rockstar
2. Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 – Konami
3. The Last of Us – Sony
