Not bad for an 18 certificate game. If this was available to all I expect it would of sold a whole lot me. But then, that wouldn't be GTA.

a lot of people have been saying that this is no big deal because gta is multiplat, whereas games like halo were exclusive. while theres a certain amount of truth in that, halo didn't have an 18+ certificate.

congrats R*, GTA rocks. plaaaaaaaayed!

Its amazing what a popular multiplatform game release can do! You have to wonder though, if it was timed exclusive to one of this consoles, would it have had the same honor? I think it would have been very close. The popularity and hype surrounding GTA is undeniable.

That's good. I'm glad that GTA4 beat out that overhyped game Halo 3. GTA4 is a game that actually deserved the hype.

still cant believe i bought into that hype. i stood in line in times square for the halo legendary edition. that game eventually got traded in for gta4

i stood in line for gta4 also but this game actually delivers, aside from the retarded spawning the online has. i wanted the limited edition with the duffel bag and case but it was sold looked so cool
