With a 225 million dollar haul, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has reportedly broken the opening weekend for sales of any entertainment anything. Ever. Spider-man 2 only made $192M. With GTA:SA, Half-Life 2, Halo 2, the Nintendo DS, and the Sony PSP, this is shaping up to be a huge season for video games, perhaps even bigger than the fall of 2001 (when PS2, X-Box, and Gamecube were all released).
