Aclaims that Take-Two will be announcing this incredible news for Grand Theft Auto IV sales. 6 million copies sold, 3.6 the first day.
Extremely pleasing news for the publisher. Rockstar and Sony are also releasing a game patch to help multiplayer issues by reducing the load stress on servers.
Take-Two's stock closed Tuesday at $26.35 a share, if you've been keeping up on the EA bid you'd know they have an offer of $26 a share. With the huge news of mega sales for Rockstar's latest prodigy the only way is up for share value.
While the corporations may be having fun some gamers still aren't, the patch being released is designed to help prevent players losing connection to online PS3 matches in GTAIV. This patch will help by "reducing the loads on the servers at GameSpy and hopefully the completely random hangs that some users have seen".
Random crashes have plagued some PS3's too, Take-Two's technical support advised deleting the game data and to work through the installation again as a possible solution.
