Gran Turismo 5 Laps The Competition In Japan

PlayStation 3 real driving simulator Gran Turismo 5 is off to a great start in Japan, with first week sales topping 430,000 copies, knocking former champ Call of Duty: Black Ops down to sixth place.

But it wasn't just Gran Turismo 5 making big moves this week in Japan. The latest Super Robot Taisen title for the Nintendo DS and sporty game potpourri Mario Sports Mix for the Wii also sold big. Gran Turismo 5's take also benefited from the PlayStation 3 bundle that sports a sweet blue exterior and a copy of Polyphony Digital's racing game thrown in.

    Hard to really put it into perspective when its up against such great titles as Trinity: Zill’Oll Zero, and who could forget the runaway success of Dangan-Ronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei.
