Is it really that unexpected? With Grand Theft Auto IV recently coming to Backwards Compatibility, sales of the Xbox 360 game have suddenly gone through the roof, with Amazon already showing it as its ‘best seller’.
Sales of the 360 title are up a staggering 7,696% on Amazon:
Once again, these sort of sales for older games are proof that the Backwards Compatibility program works, and that it’s definitely something the Xbox fans are wanting. Playstation have also realised this and created Playstation Now, a service that allows you to stream PS3 games to your PS4. In the UK this service will set you back £12.99 a month or you can rent games individually. This will cost you £2.99 or £4.99 for a two-day rental, or £5.99 or £7.99 for a 30-day rental period, while the Xbox version is entirely free.
