Another record was set by GTAIV. This one, however, is quite significant. After a week of sales, Rockstar’s baby raked in $500 million. That’s a lot of millions. Pirates of The Carribean: At World’s End did $404 million and Halo 3 did $310 million. As for copies sold? 6 million units were sold worldwide.
Shit. I was shocked.
Not so shocking was the fact that the Xbox 360 version outsold the PS3 one. Or so Microsoft says. I don’t doubt it.
In addition, the PS3 patch arrived today. It supposedly fixed multiplayer connection issues (I wouldn’t know because I never tried MP) and the single player game freezes a few folks who were experiencing. No news on the Xbox 360 version yet.
Apparently the patch didn’t fix everyone’s freezing issues.
I read today that Sony claims that DLC for PS3 is very likely as well…http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/52567
I don’t know if I need DLC for GTAIV. It needs to add substantial and meaningful DLC. (ie: More Brucie stuff) etc etc… Details are scarce, but I hope it doesn’t turn out to be like Mass Effect sidemissions.
