  • May 14-GTA IV Breaks Guinness World Records

    Rock Star Games’ controversial Grand Theft Auto IV video game has officially made the Guinness World Records list, after an explosive first week of sales.

    Consumers snapped up 3.6 million units of GTA IV in 24 hours, helping the video game earn $310 million dollars on its first day of release.

    The figures make GTA IV the most profitable entertainment release of all time, surpassing records set by other video game, film and book first day releases.

    The sales feat has earned GTA IV the record for Highest Grossing Video Game in 24 Hours and the Highest Revenue Generated by a Product in 24 Hours.

    The record sends Hip-Hop DJ Green Lantern into the history books as well, as the popular Hip-Hop DJ has his own programmed station in the game, which is accessible anytime a user steals a car and turns on the radio.

    “Rockstar really killed it with this one,” DJ Green Lantern told AllHipHop.com. “From all the tech advances to the music, to the timing of the release, they deserve to break records with this.. Oh yeah and I'm in it too [laughs].”

    The enormous sales of GTA IV eclipsed previous records.

    The record for the fastest selling book in 24 hours is held by Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, which earned $220 million dollars in 24 hours.

    The previous record for video games was set by Halo 3, which earned over $170 million dollars in 24 Hours.

    In film, the record is held by Spider Man 3, which grossed $60 million dollars in 24 hours.

        Halo 3 was advertised to the last GTA 4 didnt need half as much advertisement to blow everything away.When game developers put time and effort into a game they deserve these kinda awards.If EA gets to buy this company there will be a GTA every 6 months.

          great news but what i expected

          btw that Green Lantern station isnt so great; too many annoying songs, and that Fat Joe/Lil Wayne "Crackhouse" track has to be one of the most annoying songs of all time. But Nas' "War is Necessary" and Mobb Deep's "Dirty New Yorker" are pretty tight.

                Halo 3? Whats that lol. I hope EA doesn't buy Rockstar. That would suck. Look how the James Bond games turned out after they got the Bond licene.

                  I'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in my ear than play Halo 3.

                    I am not a fan of the Halo series.

                    But I disagree with that statement.

                        I own GTA IV and I like it, BUT it is probably the most overrated game ever. I like San Andreas way better in just about every way: controls, music, story...th only advantage GTA IV has is better graphics.

                          i respect your opinion, but I mean c'mon. Sure They took away some fun things we were used to like parachutes, basketball, bikes, and some other little things, but GTA core players are getting older and older, thus the game getting more mature, and realistic.

                          The story in San Andreas was better???? It was basically rags-to-riches (again) or hoodrat to hoodking. And the controls...I dont see how anyone can say the controls arent better with IV. I mean the use of cover, and the new aiming system is miles ahead of san andreas. I may agree with you on the music part, but seriously, there's a reason this game got all perfect scores.

                            Halo 3 online play rocks.

                            You guys just like cocks in your mouthes.

                            But yeah, I def expected GTA4 to surpass Halo 3 in sales... its the most anticipated game of all fucking time.
                            change must come from within
