Grand Theft Auto IV Boosts 360 Sales

Grand Theft Auto IV Boosts 360 Sales

In a report by eurogamer.net Chart-Track said Sales of Xbox 360 consoles are 18 per cent ahead of the PlayStation 3 in the UK since the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV.



"Official GTA IV sales figures for the first four weeks also reveal that the Xbox 360 is the format of choice for UK gamers, with 57 per cent of the total sales of the game on 360, compared to 43 per cent on PS3."

GTA IV has sold like hotcakes in the UK and almost sold as many copy's as FIFA-08 which is amazing considering how much the UK enjoys its soccer and the fact that FIFA was launched on every platform available.

according to Chart-Track 750,000 copy's of GTA IV have sold in the UK for the 360 alone and 570,000 on PS3.

Chart-Track also reported that "the effect on driving hardware sales has also been more dramatic on 360 than PS3, according to Chart-Track’s figures. Comparing sales of both consoles for the four weeks prior to GTA IV’s launch to the four weeks since its launch, hardware units have risen on 360 by 47 per cent, compared to just eight per cent on PS3 - though it’s fair to point out that the release of GT 5 Prologue had already given PS3 a significant boost in the weeks leading up to GTA IV’s debut."

I wounder if the higher sales for 360 are due to the fact Microsoft paid Take2 for exclusive down-loadable content?
