Play.com’s head of games, Gian Luzio, has stated that Grand Theft Auto IV has become the fastest selling game the online store has ever had.
“GTA IV is the fastest selling game ever on Play.com, and has broken the record previously held by GTA San Andreas,” he said.
He also mentioned that while the GTA IV Xbox 360 and PS3 sales have been “neck and neck” so far, the PS3 hardware bundle apparently sold out within 24 hours.
“We are receiving regular shipments from Take-Two and they have handled the biggest game release admirably. Congratulations to all of them for doing such a great job in difficult circumstances.”
“The platform holders have done a fantastic job in promoting gaming this year and I believe we are going to have an outstanding Christmas 2008 with games like Call of Duty 5, MotorStorm 2 and Gears of War 2 to name a few.”
