Records shattered by GTA IV

Nearly 1 million copies sold in first week...

Grand Theft Auto IV seizes the top spot in the ChartTrack/ELSPA All Formats chart, outselling former No.1 Wii Fit by over 9 to 1.

Sales for the latest GTA accounted for 61.2 per cent of the value of the software sold in the week ending May 3, which single-handedly tops the total software market figure for every week since the first week of 2008.

The game sold an estimated 631,000 units on its first day of release and came close to breaking the 1 million unit milestone over the following five days, with overall sales of 926,000 copies, amounting to £39.9 million. It has even sold more units than almost every title in 2007, excluding FIFA 08, Brain Training and Call Of Duty 4.
