Rockstar's critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 has smashed numerous records following its release on October 26, taking the title of single-biggest opening weekend in entertainment history. Red Dead Redemption 2, the latest game from Take-Two Interactive Software's Rockstar Games, posted worldwide sales of more than $725 million in its first three days.

The massive opening sales has officially put the game up on Grand Theft Auto V's level.

We're still working hard on our review of Red Dead Redemption 2, but expect it to arrive early this week. However, these figures only include boxed copies, with Rockstar and PlayStation 4 producer Sony claiming that Red Dead Redemption 2 is also breaking records in terms of its digital sales.

In the game, you play as Arthur Morgan - an outlaw associated with the infamous Dutch van der Linde gang, who are on the run from the law after a boat heist that went horribly wrong. GTA V launched on a Tuesday, and pulled in one billion in three days, so that's why Red Dead 2 was able to take the weekend crown. The Rockstar game's release Friday also led to several new records for the PlayStation Network, where Red Dead Redemption now ranks as the most pre-ordered full game ever; biggest one-day seller among full games; and the biggest three-day seller among full games.
