Gran Turismo Series Races To 60 Million Sold

Driving simulator Gran Turismo 5 is finally out. People are buying it! And that's helping the series pass a very important chequered flag: the 60 million units sold one.

According to Sony Computer Entertainment, the Gran Turismo series has now sold over 60 million units, with newly released GT5 selling 5.5 copies worldwide in its first 12 days on sale.

Do know that Sony counts "sold" as sold to retailers and not necessarily sold through to consumers.

Between November 24 and December 6, Gran Turimso 5 sold 550,000 copies in Japan, 1.25 million in North America, 3.56 million in Europe and 160,000 copies in the rest of Asia. Those numbers are bound to get Sony's engine humming.


    Sony needs to change how they present and measure their statistics.

    Sold should be to consumer. It's misleading if 2 million units are only sitting in the storeroom waiting to be bought...

    You know a game is in trouble when they pimp the (alleged) sales of an entire SERIES, rather than the sales of the current (wildly overdue, poorly-performing, mediocre-reviewing) product.

    60 million sales sure sounds a lot better than "530K" sales...
