'North America's best-selling multiplatform game this year.'

BioShock Infinite sales have surpassed four million units, Take-Two Interactive chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick confirmed during the company’s fiscal 2014 financial call.

In May, it was revealed the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC title exceeded 3.7 million units sold. Which means it moved another 300,000 copies in just two months.

BioShock Infinite is North America’s best-selling multiplatform release so far this year, according to NPD,” Zelnick said. “The title has crossed the 4 million units selling mark, and we expect it to become the top-selling release in the BioShock franchise.”

This morning, developer Irrational Games revealed the first downloadable content plans for BioShock Infinite, including a two-part add-on that takes players to pre-fall Rapture.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Good for them. Still need to pick it up.

      Same here. Not really into FPS but Bioshock was one of the few that I liked. Maybe I’ll wait for a PS+ deal.

        I don’t like FPS at all, but I thought Bioshock Infinite was a lot of fun … great atmosphere and storytelling. The only disappointment was that the ending was very convoluted.

        • Elvick

          Being convoluted isn’t a bad thing.

          I’ve had enough spoon fed endings to last a life time.

            It’s thought-provoking, rather than convoluted.

      • Zackasaur

        I say go ahead and get it. You can readily pick it up new for $40 online, and I wouldn’t expect a PS+ deal any time soon, if ever.

    • Zackasaur

      Get on that! It’s brilliant.

  • bldudas

    This game deserves it. It’s one of my favorite western games.

  • Chestnut Bowl

    I’m glad the sales matched the developer’s ambition. It’s a game everyone should play.

    This game is wonderful and deserves far more. c:

    Awfully pretentious story accompanied by a unoriginal and mediocre shooter. Production design was nice though. Yet the underlying game is a joke. Next time they start their massive internet hype i will ignore them :D

      “Pretentious” usually means “went over my head.”

      That certainly seems to be the case here.

      • Zancrow

        “Pretentious” can also mean “Game I dislike is popular as fuck and I don’t like it”.

    Should we make dinstinction between units sold and shipped?

    • RSene

      Hum.. never mind…
