Grand Theft Auto IV smashes sales records in its first week

Grand Theft Auto IV made a killing in its first week selling 926,000 copies in the UK and a whopping 6 million worldwide, smashing sales records and leaving analyst expectations in its wake.

Gamers seem to have rejected the idea of cultivating toned pecs and getting fit in favour of putting on the chub and checking out Liberty City, with GTA IV outselling Wii Fit by nine copies to one last week.

GTA IV raked in an unbelievable $500 million in its first week beating the previous first-week sales record held by Halo 3. The game has been lauded by gamers and critics alike justifying the hype in the build up to its release.
