    100,000 People Play Gran Turismo 5 Every Day

    Mashable quietly published an interesting video interview with North American Gran Turismo producer Taku Imasaki earlier this month.In addition to highlighting Gran Turismo 6‘s all-new game engine, Taku emphasized that many of the game’s new changes and features are “for the community”, and that the team at Polyphony Digital has been listening carefully to player feedback:
    “Ever since GT5 came out, we hear a lot, like on forums, and our creator of the game, Yamauchi-san, he tweets.
    He gets like a thousand tweets every day from people saying ‘you should do this or put this car in’. We pay a lot of attention to that stuff and take it really seriously.”
    Finally, he shared a fascinating statistic, confirming that over “100,000 people log in every day” to play Gran Turismo 5 – a high level of long-term player engagement for a game nearing three years in age.

    Broken how?

    Personally it's great, but as someone on GTplanet said there almost isn't another game like this on Playstation that's why there are 100,000 people still playing everyday kind of like Madden or NBA games there only exists one of each now it's either Madden or NBA 2K.

    So in some ways it's like cool, but in other ways it's like meh.

    If you want to count NFS Shift or even Shift 2 you could, but really they aren't in direct competition.

    In fact only game that seems to truly be in direct comp with Gran Turismo is Forza right now and that's on 360 so again only on PS3 GT barely as anyone to worry about.


    With all that said I'm waiting on final counts for Tracks/Cars/Features/A.I before I say I'll jump right in for a Day One, and heck it still won't be Day 1 at that.

    Like I keep saying, screw Forza / Drive Club the real king this holiday is GT6. Oh man so many families that don't have much money are gonna bank on a cheap PS3 this holiday with GT6!

    No joke, if GT6 is anything as quality as GT2 or 4 this game will sell 15+ million copies.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    only thing i don't like is how it's so difficult to get a quick race going. you have to be really dedicated to racing in order to even get in. i was in one race and it was fun but that was it. very difficult to find a game really quick.

    We don't know for a fact if that's the case trust that people felt and knew about how bad GT5 was even after all the updates were done.

    Not everyone is happy so far either with how GT6 is going at this rate it'll be a small step above GT5, and that's not saying it won't sell the 15+, but if it puts out another bad game according to a majority then that does it for a lot of folks including me.
