Speaking in the latest Major Nelson podcast, guest “e”, who’s most recently been working on getting Xbox Live ready for GTA IV’s launch, has revealed a fairly startling stat regarding initial Achievement scoring for the game.
“In the first 24 hours, over 2 million Achievements were unlocked for a total of 15 million gamer score,” he said.
It was announced this week that around a million people had played the game on live in the first 24 hours from launch this week, a fact reiterated by e. It sounds as though the pull away from other games has been strong.
“More than 1.5 million cross-game invites,” said e. “Again, this is in the first 24 hours.”
There’s not much more fact-worthy in the podcast aside from the Major and e saying how amazing the game is. A lot. Have fun.
