10.06.04 - Few days ago Take Two Interactive has the results 2. Quarter (February until April) of the current financial year 2004 submitted. Analyst Michael Pachter of Wedbush Morgan Securities had before expressed itself over Bloomberg to the result and in its own article of the company some prognoses had provided now. Grand Theft car: San Andreas (PS2) appears to 19.10.04 in the USA and to 22.10.04 in Europe. Pachter assumes 4.5 million units in 4. Quarter 2004 (August - Okotober) to the trade to be sold, further 4.5 million units are in the 1. Quarter 2005 (Nov.'04 - Jan.'05) to be set off. In the further process of the financial year 2005 (01.11.04 to 31.10.05) then again 2 million units are to be sold. Thus the PS2-Version comes to 11 million sold units. A Xbox version of GTA: San Andreas is to appear according to estimate of Pachter in the financial year 2005, but because of a contract with Sony only after the Christmas business of this year: In 2. Quarter 2005 (February - April) million units of the Xbox version are to be sold to 1 to the trade, for the remainder of the financial year again 500,000 pieces.
