Grand Theft Auto IV Tops Years Best Selling Games

Published at 3:44 AM PST

No real surprise here, however it's still interesting to see just how well the game has done. In the recently revealed list of the Top Selling Games of the Year so far, it was prominent that Grand Theft Auto IV had come out on top over all. It topped the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 charts in which it was released on. The 5 top games on each console are below:

Xbox 360

  1. Grand Theft Auto IV (Rockstar Games)
  2. Call of Duty 4 (Infinity Ward)
  3. Madden NFL 09 (EA Tiburon)
  4. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (Ubisoft Montreal)
  5. Army of Two (EA Montreal)

PlayStation 3

  1. Grand Theft Auto IV (Rockstar Games)
  2. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (Kojima Productions)
  3. Call of Duty 4 (Infinity Ward)
  4. Madden NFL 09 (EA Tiburon)
  5. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (Polyphony Digital)

The Wii was the only system not to have Grand Theft Auto IV released on, so obviously it isn't in it's charts. However overall, it would certainly appear that GTA IV was the most popular game of the year so far. Considering it beat records, while analysts say it could and will do even better over the Christmas holidays, it has done fantastically well. PC will no doubt boost it's prominence even further.
