There's a new #1 in town
It was announced today that a new game has replaced the stubborn stronghold Grand Theft Auto 3 has had on videogame sales. Accoding to NPD TRSTS, for the week of 3/23, Virtua Fighter 4 was the #1 selling Playstation 2 game. As an exclusive title to the PS2, numerous publications are already claiming VF4 to be the best fighting game of all-time. Whether this bold statement is true or not is still amongst debate, however, Sega has not disappointed its fans, as these incredible sale figures dictate.
"Virtua Fighter is one of SEGA's top franchises and bringing it to PlayStation 2 was a monumental occasion for us," said Peter Moore, president and COO, SEGA of America. "With our incredible development talent bringing both our established franchises and new content to all platforms, SEGA is already a heavyweight publisher in the industry."
