Max Payne 3 Has Shipped 3 Million in a Week

Max Payne 3 Ships 3 million and XCOM is delayed again.

financial report today, Max Payne 3 which was released a little over a week ago has already shipped 3 million copies. Max Payne 3 has garnered mostly positive reviews from critics and players alike. The Max Payne series has never really been a huge selling series, in fact that is one of the main reasons why we had to wait so long for Max Payne 3; Max Payne 2 sales were not very good to say the least. In other news, Take-Two also announced that XCOM the first-person shooter has been delayed again. The game will now arrive sometime between "April 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014", which is a pretty big release schedule. Apparently many fans of the XCOM franchise could get their wish, that this first-person shooter remake may never see the light of day. However, there was still no announcement as to the release date of GTA V, some analysts are projecting that the game will be released by March of 2013 because during this financial report Take-Two announced that during the next fiscal year they expecting to make "$1.75 billion to $1.85 billion for the full fiscal year ending March 31, 2013." In other words, because Take-Two's financial projections are so big, analysts expect that GTA V will be released between the end of this year and March 31, of 2013. Although I don't really agree with the analysis, I think Take-Two is actually projecting to have a big year because of Borderlands 2 and BioShock Infinite. I actually believe that Borderlands 2 is going to sell huge later this year, probably more than most of these analysts believe it will.
