Within one week of GTA IV's debut in Japan, consumers have purchased over 133,000 copies of the game for the PlayStation 3 alone. With GTA IV for PS3 settling into #1 on the software chart. The XBox 360 version also sold an impressive 34,000, and nestled into spot #7.

Another greatly anticipated game that was recently released, LittleBigPlanet, sold 52,000 PlayStation 3 units. LittleBigPlanet fell just a little below GTA, but the hype from April was still running strong and finally boiled over on October 31st when GTA IV was released. This was seen when the Japanese gaming bible Famitsu awarded GTA IV a 39/40, and LittleBigPlanet a 38.

I wonder if the PC version will have the same impact over here when it comes out. I can't quite see it because of all the other games coming out around now though.

I'm sure I heard it was a PS3 exclusive?

True, and the fact that it's already been released for consoles makes it less likely for it to be as big as it was in Japan. No doubt it will be a good turnout in sales though.
