    Gran Turismo 5 sells over 9 million units

    Looks like Gran Turismo 5 finally broke 9 million sales recently, according to Polyphony Digital. They updated their sales chart recently to show sales up to late 2012. For those of you that don’t want to visit the website for whatever reason, here are the figures, compared to the rest of the franchise:
    Title Units (K)*
    Gran Turismo 10,850
    Gran Turismo 2 9,370
    Gran Turismo 3 A-spec 14,890
    Gran Turismo Concept Series 1,560
    Gran Turismo 4 “Prologue” 1,400
    Gran Turismo 4 11,600
    Gran Turismo 5 “Prologue” 5,350
    Gran Turismo PSP 3,860
    Gran Turismo 5 9,010
    Total 67,890

    It seems that despite Gran Turismo 5 having over 9 million sales, it still trails behind the Playstation 2 predecessors. I can honestly kind of agree with those sales. I got a lot more playtime out of Gran Turismo 3 than I did Gran Turismo 5. Same goes for Gran Turismo 4. What about you?


    Have you been enjoying yourself more with Gran Turismo 5 or do you feel something is missing from the franchise? I suppose we’ll have to wait and see what Polyphony Digital has up their sleeves for Gran Turismo 6 to see if they can get even better sales and ratings for that matter. Gran Turismo 5 was actually the lowest rated game of the franchise.


    Regardless, congratulations to Polyphony Digital on a job well done!
    Awesome news! Though I must say, I wasn't happy with the game. I have the feeling that GT6 will more than make up for it. I am guessing that will be on the next PS.

    No GT can compare to Gran Turismo 3's sales. But these guys are pulling great numbers compared to other Playstation IP's but that's mainly due to continuous exposure of their games.

    Yep, as I predicted it'll probably end up outselling GT1 but not GT3, but that's down to Sony not bundling the game enough.

    IMO it was the best GT game however, more content than any previous entry which of course led me to playing it more than any other.

    Indeed. Not only that, it is more sales than the last two versions of the competing game combined.

    My first ever GT game was 5 Prologue. I was kinda addicted after that. Gt5, and PSP are my babies now. I can't wait to get a great release on the Vita.

    Hopefully GT6 has been in development for the ps4 and not the ps3. They need to find a more efficient way to develop car models.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    As of right now, F Destiny.

    I was very disappointed with GT5. GT3 and GT4 were the best.

    Another landmark moment for Polyphony Digital.

    Gran Turismo 5 is the pinnacle of racing simulation. I can't get enough of it. It completely eliminated my need to play any other racing sim but i've played them all just to see how they stack up to GT5 and nothing has beaten the greatness of GT5 yet for me.

    I'm guessing that could work. A GT title is something to sink 100m into. They could easily make that back. A gt title on a 3 year cycle should be what they are aiming for. Dlc for the 1st 2 years.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    Yeah MotorStorm is definitely more my type of racer, I loved Apocalypse more than the first two, I'm in the minority but it was just more thrilling racing through a city being torn apart.

    Yeah, I'd rather see them get a head-start on a PS4 release...especially if development may end up taking as long as GT5 did.

    That would be one AMAZING launch title, too.

    My guess is that PD wanted GT5 to be used as the base game for PS4 as well. The car models are pretty much perfect what only need some texture updates and some slight improvements. Race courses have the basics nailed (width, bumps etc..) so textures/models/background props can be added/improved.

    Raytracing is implanted already (used in photo mode) and so much more, like already 1080p, 3D and 60fps.. I think we'll see a much more complete GT next-gen due to all this work already done on GT5.
