GTA IV Officially Holds 2 Guiness World Records

Recommended Posts

The newest game in the series, Grand Theft Auto IV,

holds a record in the Guinness Book of World Records, breaking the previous record by Halo 3 in overall sales within the 24 hour mark of the game's launch.

GTA IV attained another record too for being the fastest selling entertainment software,

selling 3.6 million copies on the first day of it's release.

On the first day alone GTA IV had raked in an entire $310 million dollars.

About twice as much as Halo 3's earnings on release day, with an average of $170 million dollars.

Well done Rockstar and congratulations for this achievement!

Yeah that is good to hear, but you have to take into account that Halo 3 was only available for one system and GTA 4 was on two. Since the record sales were exactly double what Halo 3 was that could mean if Halo 3 was released for both systems it would have sold almost the same amount as GTA 4. I'm not a Halo 3 fanboy at all, I'm just getting this through cause everyone is so excited that it destroyed Halo 3 sales wise. It was actualy a genius idea to put the game out on both systems...look how much money they made!

i'm not so surprised, R*games is phenomenal and they deserve that spot. after all Halo 3 was for xbox 360 only, there is no way Halo can win.

i can't wait to see what other sandbox action games has to offer such as saints row 2 and the getaway

my bet is they can't beat IV, ever!
