AJ's TOP 10 LIST:
The release of Rockstar games’ “Grand Theft Auto V” generated $800 million sales in 24 hours around the world, a record for any game from Take Two Interactive, and the “GTA” franchise itself. Success of the game bodes well for other tentpole game releases debuting this fall including the next “Call of Duty,” “Assassin’s Creed” and “Battlefield” sequels, as well as “Batman: Arkham Origins” and newcomer “Watch Dogs.” The release of “GTAV” is certainly impressive, especially when compared to film releases. The top three earners at the box office this year are Disney’s “Iron Man 3,” which generated $1.2 billion; Universal’s “Despicable Me 2,” at $840 million; and Warner Bros.’ “Man of Steel,” at $663 million.
