Holy record breaking Grand Theft Auto IV
sales Rockstar! We knew GTAIV
would be a sales behemoth, but never did we think it would rack up hundreds of million dollars in sales its first week on U.S. shelves. But that's exactly what it did.
Rockstar and Take-Two just announced
that U.S. GTAIV
sales reached $500 million in sales the first week, which means 6 million copies were purchased from retailers nationwide. GTAIV
also shattered Halo 3's $170 million
twenty-four hour sales record, ringing up some $310 million in sales on April 29th alone. We guarantee it's all smiles over at the offices of Take-Two and Rockstar, though truckloads of cash tend to do that to a person.
