UK enjoys record-breaking first six months' sales

ChartTrack has confirmed to MCV that the first half of 2008 has broken all previous records and become the most successful ever.

Games retail has benefitted hugely from the release of major titles including GTA IV, Wii Fit, Mario Kart Wii and Metal Gear Solid 4, while 'long tail' and casual-gamer-focused successes, particularly on DS, have pushed ChartTrack figures through the roof.

The story is too old to be commented.
