Sony says PS3 sales spiked with Grand Theft Auto IV

by: John -
Next-Gen has a piece with word from Sony saying they have seen an increase in sales with the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV. No figures were given but we should know soon on what they were if there was indeed a small or large increase in sales. While it's not an exclusive there are some really great exclusive games coming for the PS3 soon especially with Metal Gear Solid 4 in a few months. Are those loyal to Sony upgrading now because they see GTA IV as the game to push them into buying the PS3? If I didn't get such a good deal on the PS3 and wanted backwards compatibility, I would've waited until the Metal Gear bundle to pick one up.
