GH III earned $115 million in first week of sales

gh3chickActivision announced today that Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock earned over $115 million within its first week of release in North America. With big smiles on their faces, the company said Guitar Hero III is its largest single product launch in history.

Throughout September, the Guitar Hero franchise remained the #1 best-selling franchise in the U.S.with over 6 million units sold worldwide, according to the NPD Group.

In November, Activision will release three new downloadable song packs; each pack will contain three songs.

Robert Kotick, Chairman and CEO of Activision, said:

"Guitar Hero III is the game that everyone is talking about. It is the only video game to make the Toys ‘R’ Us Hot Toy list for 2007 and Toy Wishes’ Hot Dozen 2007, which forecast the most popular holiday gifts of the season. Despite having significantly increased our production capabilities for the holiday, there is still a high likelihood that we will not be able to meet demand for this game on every platform."
