Speaking to Reuters, Take-Two CEO Ben Feder said that he felt analysts had been conservative in their estimates of how well GTA IV will sell this year.

“Our expectations are very high, higher than analysts give the game credit for,” he said “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.”

Webush Morgan’s Michael Pachter estimated that the game would sell 5.8 million units in its first week, while Hudson Square analyst Daniel Ernst reckons 13 million copies this year is a goer.
