    Does this include people who bought it for £0.00 from Epic? I have the receipt.

    Yep, the deal is Epic pays the game developer what they would have earned for a full price sale, so RockStar made a lot of money from that.

    PC digital distribution doesn't count for sales charts like that.
    Those 438k copes in the sales statistic are purely sales of the console versions, if the Epic ones would have been counted the sales number would have been closer to 8 than 6 digits.
