Grand Theft Auto IV: Wall Street

On Tuesday Take-Twowill finally release its much-anticipated Grand Theft Auto IV video game. Is the stock currently a steal?

Prepare for beatings, carjackings, drive-by shootings, drunk driving and hookers. For video game fans, it can only mean one thing: "Grand Theft Auto 4" is here, with all the subtlety of a shotgun blast.

The latest chapter in the wildly popular and controversial criminal action franchise from Take-Two Interactive is poised to be the biggest entertainment product of the year, with expected first-week sales of up to $400 million -- dwarfing Hollywood's biggest box-office openings.

Take-Two is betting the house on this video game, exclaims Jeff Macke. They’re hoping this game will be so big they won't have to buckle under and sell out to Electronic Arts , which previously made a bid for the company. I expect grand Theft’s numbers out of the gate will be huge.
