With week one sales out the door, Codemasters is proud to announce that DiRT, the company’s critically acclaimed new racing title, has exceeded expectations across the board. If DiRT’s early review score of 9/10 from Official Xbox Magazine (U.S.) wasn’t any indication, Codemasters is now reporting that week one sales of the game have surpassed 500K copies globally, and the playable demos for the Xbox 360 video game entertainment system from Microsoft and the PC have been downloaded over 500K times worldwide.
According to www.VGChartz.com, the title’s early sales performance has landed DiRT in the number one spot on the Xbox 360 charts in North America, and additionally has placed it in the top five games of the week globally across all platforms. DiRT is currently available at retail outlets nationwide for the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PC. The Playstation 3 edition will be available later this year.
