that is amazing, I still play gt 5 using the force feedback wheel makes for a very realistic driving experience. Well done.

You're not ACTUALLY playing Gran Turismo or any racing game for that matter, if you're not using a force feedback wheel. A good stereo system is also a priority, nothing sounds better than a GT-R w/ no music playing and the volume being on full blast. The sound of that car sings to the human soul.

Gran Turismo will always be king. It's astounding that almost two years after launch Gran Turismo 5 has kept me racing with all the content and support from Polyphony

Can't wait to see it hit 10 million units sold!
Temporary  +   1068d ago
Bought it on launch and still play it, i'll probably never get the platinum trophy though

-_- but the game is beyond any other racing game ive played.

Congratulations to the GT5 team.

some events are impossible without wheel, it's the real driving simulator

as for sales, Gran Turismo will never dissapoints

My favourite racing game this gen, by far!
MultiConsoleGamer  +   1068d ago
This series has incredible legs.
hennessey86  +   1068d ago
It has a dedicated fan base
He'll I've bought it twice :D, I do hope though that with the money they have made withbGT5 they will correct some of the main issues like engine sounds and career mode length
mayberry  +   1068d ago
Got on GT5 today! Awesome sim. Very well made!
Me-Time  +   1068d ago
Thank the lord (Kaz) for all those updates. GT5 is still great to play after the revisements.
jimbobwahey  +   1068d ago
Those are some insane sales figures. Well deserved though, it's a fantastic game with a hell of a lot of content. Certainly got my monies worth from it :)

best looking racing sim and the best selling game of this gen
Sizzon  +   1068d ago
Not the best selling game of this gen.

Wii: New Super Mario Bros Wii, (if you don't count Wii Sports.)

Xbox 360: Halo 3, (if you don't count Kinect Adventures.)

PS3: Gran Turismo 5

"best selling game of this gen" umm... NO. Maybe you were trying to say best selling racing sim? But if you are trying to say best selling "game" flat out...you are sadly mistaken. COD in almost all of its iterations this generation have surpassed 9 million.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1068d ago
Really need to buy this again with all of the patches already on disc.
I had to delete my game data was taking up 9GB of space!
Such a great game though, there's just something really special about Gran Turismo games, been buying them since PSOne.
DaReapa  +   1068d ago
Never really been much into racing games, but I've always had an interest in this. Maybe a good start for a first time racing sim buyer. Seeing that the XL Edition has dropped below 20USD, I'll be picking this up soon.
NYC_Gamer  +   1068d ago
Congrats for GT5
Dlacy13g  +   1068d ago
agreed, 9 million is very impressive. Congrats GT5.
nano88  +   1068d ago
thats what sup
Kinger8938  +   1068d ago
Wow! Very suprised as when it came out, no one i knew was interested (except me :3)

I didnt last long though, i felt alot was missing but still a great sim racer
Hicken  +   1068d ago
I'll refrain from mentioning any other franchises in any silly comparisons, and simply say that these sales are well-deserved.
OllieBoy  +   1068d ago
Nice. Just hope GT6's development goes a little smoother.
stonecold3  +   1068d ago
well done pd and sony
kingPoS  +   1068d ago
Part of reason GT5 is so popular in Europe might be due to the ps3's broad wheel support.

Keep in mind that over in Eurpoe you drive right hand side, meaning that the wheel is on right.

Picture all the wheel accessories with sequential shifter knobs, now imagine all those shifters were on the left instead. Now picture the Logitech G25 & GT7... see what I'm getting at.

In Italy we drive right hand side but the wheel is on left. I'm sure that it's like this for all the countries where people drive right hand side. :)
wenaldy  +   1068d ago
Yeah kinda weird he mentioned that. In my country we are also drive on the left, right hand side.
IRetrouk  +   1068d ago
Still my very fav racer. Have to admit that some things in the game felt a little rushed or underused but on the track with a premium car it was pure gold. Hope we see this free roam driving mode thing he was on about last year, been playing forza horizon and have to say that its fantastic would love to see what way pd would do it.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1068d ago
I thought this too.
Seemed like we got the full game they intended to make a few months later after the big patches.
Still amazing on its own but those patches made a huge difference in my opinion.
IRetrouk  +   1067d ago
Oh yeah the patches definatly helped i still play the game every week or so. The amount of love pd still give the game is brill.
BabyTownFrolics  +   1068d ago
i hate racing games, but I love this racing game
thehusbo  +   1068d ago
amazing sales for the king of racers. very likely this will pass 10million.
Tr10wn  +   1068d ago

MRMagoo123  +   1068d ago

Crystallis  +   1068d ago
I don't think anyone is surprised by these numbers, and it got to 9 mil so fast.. Incredible.
ZoyosJD  +   1068d ago
This is great news for the Gran Turismo fans who continue to support Sony's free online Gran Turismo racing civilization.

I can't wait to see the quality for the next installment of this series on the true next generation Sony Playstation console with images being displayed at a photo-realistic 4k resolution.

May Sony race forward into the future of gaming successfully with the simultaneous launch of the Sony Playstation 4 console and Gran Turismo 6.

hey man head over to gtplanet we organize races there nonstop
kingPoS  +   1068d ago
Driving aids can cost you power
When I first got GT5 I used to have all the aid's on. Gradually I realized those same aid's were robbing me of power when I started using the driving force gt. Now the first thing I do when I get a new car is turn off TC, ASM, Skid recovery force and Steering assist.

Practice with ABS off, race with it on. Its hard to beat good braking :)

Gt5 wins in sales, forza wins in reviews!

As a gamer, which is more important to you ;)
blankityblank  +   1067d ago
Using your way of thinking:
Killzone 2 - 91 on metacritic
Halo 4 - 88 on metacritic

----------------------------- ------
Halo4 wins in sales, Killzone2 wins in reviews!

As a gamer, which is more important to you ;)
----------------------------- ------

I wonder if you'll maintain the same logic now ...
Lvl_up_gamer  +   1067d ago
Ask the question again when all the reviews have come in for Halo 4 and we will see if Halo 4 is still @ 88 on meta.
tommygunzII  +   1067d ago
When everyone on the track knows what they are doing it is a brilliant game. Still need for that guy that missed his braking zone to crush his radiator when he runs into me :)

Congratulations PD
