Analysts feel that Grand Theft Auto IV is poised to kick Halo 3's ass as far as making money out of the box goes. They go so far as to predict that the game will shatter the $300 million that Halo 3 pulled down in the first week of its life. The sales estimates are somewhere on the order of 9 million copies, which would bring in just about $400 million.
For those of you who don't know, that's a lot of money.
And it's a good thing, because the game apparently cost a bundle to make, and it's been in development for a couple of years now. Still, this has to be good news for Take-Two and Rockstar, who are likely to be expecting their bonus checks in the mail any day now.
