GTAIV Day 1 Sales!

Well, here's the day 1 sales for GTAIV in the UK!

Quote:
Data obtained by MCV from official UK industry monitor ChartTrack shows that Rockstar’s GTA IV has become the fastest selling game ever in a 24 hour period.

The figures – based on EPoS sales data and estimated retail transactions – show that total online and High Street sales for the game hit 609,000 in one day.

That beats the previous record of 501,000 set by another Rockstar title, GTA: San Andreas, on Friday, 29th October, 2004.

Xbox 360 narrowly nudged out PS3 in the ‘battle of the consoles’.

Amazing work for both the PS3 and the 360, but wow, the PS3 attach rate is amazing. That's 1/4 of PS3 owners in the UK .

I'll update this topic if any new sales data turns up.

Gee, thanks Neil.


The sales don't surprise me, this game was pretty anticipated from the start.
