Here is a quick recap of Halo 3’s sales:
- First-day sales of Halo 3 reached $180 million in the U.S
- Worldwide more than US$300 million worth were sold in the first week
This is the performance of GTA IV:
- Take-Two estimates that on its first day, GTA IV sold 3.6 million copies and generated $310 million in sales
Would you like to hear more?
- GTA IV sold more than 6 million copies in the first week
There is, however, a couple of side notes:
Halo 3 was only release on 1 console (360), while GTA IV was released on both PS3 and 360. So, give Halo 3 a little more credit.
EA games is likely to buy out Take-Two. In the event that it does happen, any future GTA games could turn out to be very different than their predecessors.
