Bookies back GTA IV staying power

Christopher Dring
Paddy Power has released odds on how long GTA IV can last at the top of the ChartTrack All Formats Charts.

The bookie predicts that the game will most likely remain at the top for between four to six weeks at 7/4, and feels that Wii Fit is the game most likely to displace it at 6/4.

Interestingly, Metal Gear Solid 4 is on just 8/1 to knock GTA off its predicted perch, the exact same odds as Sega’s Iron Man. Whereas Ubisoft’s much-anticipated Haze remains absent from Paddy Power’s list.

“There’s no doubt about it, Grand Theft Auto IV is the biggest game of the year,” says Paddy Power’s Sharon McHugh. “How long it stays at the top spot will depend on how quickly people snap it up. One thing is for sure though; it’ll take something special to knock it off number one.”


Paddy Power has the betting:

How many weeks will Grand Theft Auto stay at number one?
11/8  One to three weeks
 7/4   Four to six weeks
10/3    Seven to nine weeks
 9/2   10 weeks or more  

First game to replace GTA IV at the top?
 6/4   Wii Fit
 3/1   Mario Kart Wii
 6/1   UEFA EURO 2008
 8/1   Iron Man
 8/1   Metal Gear Solid 4
10/1    Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games
10/1    Chronicles of Narnia
12/1    Gran Turismo 5

16/1    The Incredible Hulk
16/1    Call of Duty 4
18/1    NASCAR 09
20/1    Pro Evolution Soccer
25/1    Super Smash Bros. Brawl
33/1    Top Spin 3
40/1    Sega Superstars Tennis
