GTA4 an ultra violent game in which you walk around the streets of liberty city committing murder to innocent pedestrians, have sexual intercourse with hookers and use an arsenal of destructive weapons to commit a one man genocide. The media have reported its the fastest selling game. (surprise, surprise)

Reports from the UK press about a stabbing of a man while waiting to buy the game. The man was stabbed a number of time in a queue of fans waiting to buy the game. witnesses thought they were seeing a promotional stunt for the launch when the blood-soaked victim staggered among them. Then realizing the attack was real after the police arrived.

It took place outside the Gamestation store in Croydon, South London, a witness said:

“The victim was covered from shoulder to belly in blood. Everyone thought it was a show to promote the game.”

Despite his stab injuries, the 23-year-old victim apparently went home to arm himself for revenge. Before policed arrived.
