Gran Turismo 5 Sets 1st Day Sales Record In Finland (Over 20K Sold Day 1)

Gran Turismo 5 got Platinium status (equals to 20k in Finland) just one day after it came to the stores, a record for Finland! Compared to big countries these are small numbers but this should show just how big this title may be in the whole of Europe. (Gran Turismo 5, PS3)

Awesome sales.

Gaming media branded it as a disappointment and tried to sabotage GT franchise, they failed.

Now this kinda tells us how many more records it could be breaking in the small EU countries....ok Finland's 20K alone may not be "big"...but combine records broken in loads of smaller countries and the number gets huge. Then add in bigger European countries like UK, France, Germany and so on...and hopefully we get more than 1 - 2 Million!

It's been less than a full day since GT5 was even released around the world... give it time.

the article about online exceeding 500k connections is a good pointer that the worldwide sales for 1st week are gonna be big .

In Finland . I laughed so much at this news. Ok i've had a drink but talk about clutching at straws.

A record is a record. The word means it's a record.
A barrier was broken. Your face is broken.

You are ashamed.

All the trolling cannot make the game stop selling.
You feel useless, helpless, desperate, without hope.

Don't worry... There is still hope.

Buy a PS3.
It's not good to let worms grow inside your guts.
