GTA: Chinatown Wars Has Lackluster Sales


This has gotta hurt the ego of Take-Two and Rockstar Games. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the latest iteration of GTA on the Nintendo DS, hasn’t been selling. At all. Since its release in March, it’s sold a mere 88,704 copies. Compare that with over 7 million copies of GTA IV and you have a complete massacre. Business Insider thinks the reason for the lack of sales is due to the fact that most DS owners are children, with which I somewhat agree.

Regardless, Rockstar better start pushing this game hard or its top franchise is in for a hurtin’.

  1. I have a hunch some people are waiting for the DSi to be released before they buy GTA: Chinatown Wars. The game is really, really awesome though, in my humble opinion.

    And heads up, GameStop�s got a Chinatown Wars contest to win a �mob boss experience� on their site, Airfare for 4 to New York, private limo, hotel, model entourage, VIP room at a club, bodyguard and $5000 in cash. It�d be a pretty sweet deal, especially in this recession. Free to enter.
