It probably comes as no shock that Aaron Greenberg, director of product management for Xbox Live, believes Grand Theft Auto IV
could very well take the top spot on Live from the see-saw battle waged between Call of Duty 4
and Halo 3
. Greenberg tells Reuters
that the multiplayer is so well implemented in GTA IV
that he can't imagine anyone who owns a copy of the game not trying it on Xbox Live.
Greenberg goes on to say that GTA IV
appeals to such a large audience and it'll probably be the best-selling game launched all year. GTA
's multiplayer is certainly a different experience from COD 4
's first-person perspective, and could easily take the top spot on Live with curious players testing it, but whether the game's multiplayer is actually deep enough to hold on to players remains to be seen.
