Fuel Overdose competes with GTA V for a new sales record

Tokyo (September 16 th, 2013). While GTA V is about to hit the stores and break a new sales record, Skander Djerbi founder of I-Friqiya is proud to announce that Fuel Overdose available on the PlayStation®Store for PS3 is about to break a new record: Released in December 2012 in Europe and March 2013 in North America, the game sold …600 units worldwide. With such a performance, Fuel Overdose that some reviewers (drunk?) considered as an “outstanding” game could even compete for the title of the worst selling console game of all times.

I-Friqiya is proud to mark the history of the video game culture and encourages other publishers and developers to publish their sales figures to challenge Fuel Overdose’s performance and unveil a part of the truth regarding the current situation of the digital download markets.

The Fuel Overdose team would also like to remind that Fuel Overdose is available on the North American PlayStation®Store  (9.99$) and that there are only 2 days left before the end of the special time-limited offer (83% off - only 1.99€ instead of 11.99€) on the European PlayStation®Store .
