Grand Theft Auto IV Hit Stores Yesterday

GTA IV Expected to Sell Six Million This Week!

Niko Bellic is here baby, and he's not messing around! The hard driving, and often controversial Grand Theft Auto IV from Rock Star Games hit the shelves yesterday, attracting geeks and non-geeks alike to local Best Buy and GameStop stores for their midnight release of the biggest game of the year. Previous Grand Theft Auto titles met a mountain of backlash for depicted violence and sexual content, and this title is no exception. Although some critics who are bashing the game admit they haven't even played it yet, the newest installment is getting perfect scores from game reviewers across the globe.

With sales expected to hit upwards of $360 million dollars from six million copies sold this week alone, those numbers beat out previous record holder Halo 3, for most units sold in the first week. Although I haven't had a chance to dive in yet, I'm sure there were some gamers out there calling in sick to work yesterday! Were your thumbs warmed up for one of the many midnight releases?

aistea311 - Me too! Between Bioshock, Halo, and this...I'm about to board the XBox 360 train. My biggest gripe with the Wii is Nintendo's draconian protection policies, which keep them from licensing games like this.

We both work so we didn't go to the midnight releases. I picked it up during my lunch! Seriously, the game is everything that everyone said it would be and more. There is some questionable material, but it's not any worse than movies are. The scale of the game and the attention to detail is amazing. I love how it's also so cinematic. Sometimes, it feels like I'm watching a movie. The gameplay is amazing too. I'm not a big fan of watching a game being played because I would rather play, but this is definitely one that is fun to watch. Hands down, one of the best, if not the best, video game ever.

We got our copy! But we have jobs, so we didn't go to the midnight release.

I Love GTA. I am more tempted to buy an XBOX because of it then Halo.
