Analysts in the US have predicted that over 9 million copies of the blockbuster game GTA IV will ship during this financial year.
The game’s developer Take-Two however, has stated that analysts are wrong and the game will do even better than any prediction. Since its release last week, the game has seen almost unanimous straight 10 scores from reputable gaming websites and critics all seem to agree it is one of the best games ever made.
Take-Two’s CEO Ben Feder told Reuters: “Our expectations are very high, higher than analysts give the game credit for.
“All the analysts had a (sales) number, give or take, and I think we will be on the upside of that rather than the downside.”
Good luck Take-Two.

Despite reports that a Blu-ray Xbox 360 is in the works from an ASUS subsidiary, Microsoft has once again moved to deny the rumors.
Microsoft had no comment when the reports hit last week, but now an official has sent an email to the popular gaming website GamePro denying the reports.
“As we have stated, we have no plans to introduce a Blu-ray drive for Xbox 360. Games are what drive consumers to purchase game consoles, and we remain focused on providing the largest library of blockbuster games available.”
It seems that more and more reports will hit the Internet that a Blu-ray Xbox 360 is coming and Microsoft will continue to deny them. Will a Blu-ray Xbox 360 be coming anytime soon, or will Microsoft stick by its guns and stay with HD digital downloads?
