October video game sales
Despite launching at the end of the month, GTA: Vice City is sitting atop NPD's top-10 video game sales chart for October.
Rockstar Games' criminally good action sequel GTA: Vice City has shot straight to the top of NPD's latest video game sales chart, despite not going on sale until the end of the month. Only a single non-PS2 game has made it into the top 10 this month, despite the fact that many of the games listed are also available on other platforms.
