Default Rockstar $500 Million week 1!

So Rockstar set a new launch record with GTA 4 this past week hitting over $500 million in sales in the first week. All I can say is damn it cost a $100 million to make so $400 million profit in 1 week must be pretty nice.

Wow, thats some awesome success. I wonder what the long term sales will be like though now all the hype has died down.

Using their first day numbers, that would put the average cost of the game at $83 each.
