GS & SONY make it clear, GTAIV + PS3= The winning combo as both caked up heavy using GTAIV........


SCEA and GameStop say that the release of Grand Theft Auto IV drove a spike in PlayStation 3 sales, but to what extent?

A press statement from SCEA said Thursday, "...As expected, the demand for Grand Theft Auto IV drove sales of the PlayStation 3 entertainment system within the first 24 hours, continuing the strong legacy of the franchise on PlayStation platforms."

Bob McKenzie, SVP of merchandising at specialist retailer GameStop, concurred: “From our position, the launch of GTA IV has been tremendous in driving traffic to our stores, as well as providing a vigorous lift in PS3 console sales over this time last week."

While some analysts expect GTA IV (which has a strong history with PlayStation platforms) to cause a boost in PS3 hardware sales, SCEA didn't release hard figures to illustrate the day-one GTA IV bump.

Next-Gen contacted SCEA for the retail data, but the company did not immediately return requests for comment.

McKenzie attributed the spike to PS2 owners who see GTA IV as a reason to upgrade to a PS3.

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter, a believer in the pull of the PlayStation brand, said, "I think brand loyalty is going to kick in for Sony, starting today. There is a huge installed base of loyal PlayStation 2 owners who have been looking for a reason to upgrade, and they have strong previous ties to the Grand Theft Auto franchise on PlayStation platforms."

He noted other upcoming PS3 exclusives may be helping along the GTA IV factor, such as Metal Gear Solid 4, LittleBigPlanet and SOCOM: Confrontation.

"...It seems like Sony’s in a great position right now," he said.

GTA IV launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 on April 29. Microsoft has yet to respond to requests for comment earlier this week on the hardware sales impact of GTA IV, although the firm told Reuters this week that it believes Xbox Live subscriptions could rise because of the game's robust multiplayer component.

GameStop's Irvine, Tex. headquarters were closed for the day as of press time.

Yo I scrolled down real fast so I didn't see it but are motherfu*kers really droppin major spoilers in here after I already explained how spoilers should be handled?

Come on ppl, a little respect for ya bx fam would be nice.



But on another note I love this game and everything but there is ONE thing that's pissin me off and that's how much the bloom effect is used in this game. It makes everything in the daytime "glow" and make certain portions seem out of focus a bit especially whites on the cop cars and yellows on the taxi's. I played w/ the brightness and contrast and what not but to no avail, to have a nice picture I must deal w/ the bloom. :( but that's my only complaint, other than that I love this game!
