GTA 4 Guinness World Record holder!

13 05 2008

Grand Theft Auto 4 has been announced as a Guinness World Record holder for two categories: Highest Grossing Video Game in 24 Hours, and Highest Revenue Generated by an Entertainment Product in 24 Hours.

GTA 4 recorded a total of 3.6 million unit sales worldwide on its first day, which totals to roughly US$ 310 million in revenues. By comparison, Bungie’s Halo 3, the previous record holder, earned around US$ 170 million on its first day. It’s not just within gaming that GTA 4 reigns as king for that matter - its first-day sales records also beat out Spidey and Potter’s latest movie and books sales, respectively:

* Fastest-selling theatrical movie in 24 hours: Spider-Man 3 at US$ 60 million
* Fastest-selling book in 24 hours: Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows at US$ 220 million

Technical issues and controversy aside, you can’t deny that Grand Theft Auto 4 has already left its mark on the entertainment industry. Check back again in case we receive any further related news.

Good news GTA fans!

The rumors of GTA IV being delayed, and you guys not being able to play the game on the 29th are false. In a recent Take-Two Interactive stockholders meeting, it was announced that the game has already gone gold.

Take-Two Interactive’s CEO, Ben Feder, had announced that Grand Theft Auto 4 will not be delayed and the game is “in production and in trucks en route to retailers.” This is pretty much a guarantee that the game will be making its release date on April 29.

To make sure you get a copy of GTA IV on it’s release date, preorder a copy! Once you have done that, sit back, relax and wait for the 29th to get the game!
