Newsbrief: It's been roughly one week since Rockstar's Max Payne 3 hit store shelves, and already the title has shipped more than 3 million units.

Take-Two revealed the figure during its most recent financial earnings report, and noted that it expects the title to become one of the most significant games during the 2013 fiscal year.

The game received a very warm reception at launch, with critics praising the title for its slick presentation, its focus on storytelling, and its fast-paced gunplay.

Max Payne 3 is currently available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with a PC version due to launch on June 1.

So I wonder how long until marketing people stop thinking that a "shipped" number actually means something...and the only thing that matters is the number of titles *sold*.
