GT Value Division Maintains Number One Market Share for Second
Minneapolis, MN, April 8, 1998 -- On the heels of capturing the number
one position in January, GT Value Product's Deer Hunter software title
continues to be the best-selling PC game in the country for February,
according to PC Data. Priced at $19.99 and marketed under the
WizardWorks brand, approximately 700,000 units of Deer Hunter have been
shipped since its release this past September.
Deer Hunter, which debuted on PC Data charts at number eight in its
first month on the market, has since continued to rapidly climb the
charts. To meet the demand created by Deer Hunter's success, GT Value
Products is also introducing Sporting Clays, a new title in their
outdoor sporting lineup.
"Our expanding outdoor sporting lineup gives consumers the opportunity
to enjoy real-life experiences in an easy-to-play, yet challenging
interactive medium," said Chuck Bond, president of GT Interactive Value
Products. "We are reaching a market segment that has been previously
overlooked and we are committed to creating high quality interactive
titles at an affordable price."
In addition to the success of Deer Hunter, conceived by GT Value
Products and developed by Sunstorm Interactive, the company maintains
its number one position in Budget/Value-priced software (units
sold/dollars) for the first two months of the year, according to PC
Data. GT Value Products has also held the number one market share in
Value software for the past two years.
