A new alliance of organizations that monitor video game sales has released the Top Global Markets Report, the first in a new series of monthly tallies detailing video game software sales across the U.S., U.K., and Japan.

Grand Theft Auto IV--6,293,000 units sold (despite the fact that the game was only released in late April in the U.S. and U.K. and has yet to hit the Japanese market)
Super Smash Bros. Brawl--5,433,000 units sold
Mario Kart Wii--4,697,000 units sold
Wii Fit--3,604,000 units sold
Guitar Hero III--3,475,000 units sold

That's 23,502,000 units sold just for the top five games in the U.S., U.K., and Japan only.

damn,23,502,000 sounds a Huge figure tho ! disregarding the millions of copies obtained thru Bittorrent Networks,that would make a much higher number of sold/obtained copies of those 5 games !! Still lots of users are waiting for the new GTA to be officially sold in their countries :tongue:
