GTA IV Beats Halo 3 Sales Record!

Dammit! That’s okay I guess, yay for games making a huge assload of cash. $500 million in the first week and 3.2 million copies sold on the first day. Awesome for Take-Two and the industry in general, but what will the numbers look like next month? Word of mouth on GTA IV has been nothing but fantastic and it’s the game of the summer in many ways, but we’ll see if that translates to even more super buckets of dollars. It would be nice. I want games to sell gazillions of copies so that we can have more games as good as GTA IV as the norm and not the record breaking every once in a whiles they have been in the past.

Congratulations Take-Two Interactive!
