GTA IV: PS3 outselling 360 3:1 at UK’s Asda
According to this MCV piece, Asda’s seeing the PS3 version of GTA IV being pre-ordered three times to every one 360 copy.
“Both titles have generated great interest on the Asda website, with strong pre-orders, and the PS3 version is selling three times that of 360, which is surprising and not in line with what we’d expect,” said Duncan Cross, Asda’s head of games.
HMV was telling a different story, though. Tim Ellis, buying head at the UK retailer, said interest for the 360 version was higher due to store promotion: “Demand for both formats is high, but our 1,000 Xbox points offer generated a huge amount of interest.”
