Two Million GTA IV Achievements Collected in One Day

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that achievements would be a big hit in the 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV; to me, it’s even one of the selling points right behind the exclusive DLC. But it’s interesting to now try and wrap your head around a figure that Major Nelson revealed in his most recent podcast — in just 24 hours, two million achievements worth 15 million Gamerpoints were unlocked in Grand Theft Auto IV alone.

Wow.

Major Nelson has promised more numbers like this in the future, which would be much more interesting to look at if he would also reveal the numbers behind some other big games like Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4 so that we can compare. Even without it, it’s incredible to think that little pop-up came up two million times because of a single game in a single day. Incredible.via 1UP / image via Media Inside

Well, this numbers don’t speak much. If, say, 1 million gamers played that day, it means that each one unlocked a low score of 15 GP, which probably means 2 or 3 “turn-on-the-console” achievements. It doesn’t really say much.

And 1 million gamers on a day, nowadays isn’t a big number. Specially after release.
