Rockstar employees should be getting their Christmas bonuses early, as GTA IV sold $500 million dollars worth of units in one f*cking week. That nearly doubled the first week sales of Halo 3, and now sets the bar for every other game to be released in years to come.
Its a well deserved half-billion, as the entire game is nearly flawless (well, unless you have a PS3). Well-designed cityscapes, great dialogue and a seemly endless amount to land to torch, are the main focal points.
Kudos to the guys at Rockstar Games for finally making a game live up to its own hype.
