GTA IV Cruises Past 1m


‘GTA IV’ retains top spot in the All Formats Chart for a second week despite a massive 77% drop in sales. The record breaking Take 2/Rockstar title still outsells ‘Wii Fit’ at No2 by 4 to 1 this week, while the Xbox 360 version widens its sales advantage over the PS3 version by accounting for 62% of sales this week compared to 55% last week.

‘Wii Fit’ sales slip by 48%, but holds on to No2, while ‘Wii Play’ swaps places with ‘Mario & Sonic’, up from No4 to No3. Over the last 2 weeks the sales difference between ‘Wii Play’ and ‘Mario & Sonic’ has only been a matter of a few hundred units. Nintendo remains the most well represented All Formats Top 10 publisher with 4 games, while Sega now has 2 thanks to a strong 2nd week for ‘Iron Man: The Official Videogame’ up from No11 to No5. The remaining All Formats Top 10 titles all shuffle places with ‘Mario Kart Wii’ putting on the breaks, down from No5 to No9. Every remaining game in the All Formats Top 40 loses sales this week except ‘Carnival: Funfair Games’ from Take 2 with sales up 25%, climbing from No37 to No22. There are no new releases in the All Formats Top 40 and no changes at the top of each of the individual format charts.
