Cumulative worldwide sales for Digital Polyphonic/SCEA's car-life simulation Gran Turismo game franchise has exceeded 60-million units sold worldwide.
Nope, get this outta here. It's well known that sales don't equal quality on N4G lol.
Yeah its well known deadreckoning666 is not a troll
that's the big news there folks! start your engines.. because this ones gonna run thru every fanboys heart... especially right thru the IGN's.
"Grant Turismo 5, the most recently-released entry into the franchise, has sold a reported 5.52-million copies"
5.52 million In a couple of weeks is rather impressive actually
haha, this is totally laughable and kinda sad. this includes all the games released on the original playstation, ps2, ps3, and psp? wow... MARIO has you beat, srry
Mario has existed for many years more jackass. But I think you know that.
And let's be fair Mario also has more games and appeals to children as well. GT5 appeals to a lot of people but children I highly doubt it.
And the sky is blue, the water is wet and the desert is dry. Look at this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... NBA Live and Harry fricken' Potter had Halo beat. **WTF: Ape Escape neck on neck on Gran Turismo? -End of Line
that's exactly my point. why celebrate something like this when it's just moot. it just provides jerkoff material for fanboys and has no real value or merit. Here's a fun fact for ya: Grand Theft Auto also released in 1997. Since then the franchise has sold over 90 million units world-wide. Congrats, GTA! http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
well according to the figure in wikipedia the sims is waaay more hardcore than grand tourismo
oh and i see that forza is catching up wow just you wait till forza 4
Do you know how long Mario has been going and how many games there has been... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... In 2010 alone he stared in 4 games...
congrats for PD.
They definitely deserved it
For the most part, yes they do.
congs pd well done sony i enjoyed gt5 60 million thats pretty big and proud that im part of the 60 million fans who brought gt games over time. well i guess its a bigger franchise than halo forza and gears combined together. peace out ?
Well i would hope so, seeing as its been around for almost twice as long as halo, and about three times as long as gears and forza. Not to mention those games have sold to user bases of combined sales (xbox + 360) of less than the PS1. Good news for the second best selling racing franchise ever. Just about 15 million more to catch mario kart, which interestingly has also only released 6 games throughout its history. Edit: I do wonder what GT5 would be like if it was dedicated hardcore sim like Live for Speed or rFactor. I hope they go that way for GT6.
not trying to take anything away, im just trying to clear something out to you stonecold3, but you realize that there arent exactly 60mil fans per se right? id say at the very LEAST, no less than 15 mil (cause of the highest sales numbers for one game) but also no where close to 60 mil
As of Sept 2010 they had 56.3 million. I guess GT5 has sold around 4 million or more now! *Edit* According to this site it has sold over 5 million worldwide! 5.5 million to be exact from Sony themselves! http://www.digitaljournal.c...
It says that in this article, too.
Oops, I missed that part. Anyway the breakdown for how much it sold is in there.
"GT5 won't sell well cause the install base isn't as big" "only shooters sell well now" "GT won't sell cause Sony isn't dominant anymore" ect. Looks like haters were wrong. edit: @ sleepy. Don't know why you're bringing other games into this at all. People said GT5 won't sell as good as the older titles, and that the older titles only sold well because of the big install base. GT5 proves these haters wrong.
Looks at GT5 week 1 Looks at Halo and CoD (PS3) week 1 looks like the haters weren't wrong....... Only when you compare though. If you take this gens best sellers out of the equation (Which just happen to be shooters on BOTH consoles), it was a darn good opening week.
Dammage control power.
compare it to forza, not fps.
Thats a big ass number! It's about to be 70 million if I have anything to say about it!
You're going to buy 10 million copies of GT5? lol
That's only....$599.5-million worth.
lol Your damn right! I'm about to get super rich and blow it all on GT5 games!
To break it down GT5 sold 550k in Japan, 1.25 Million in North America, and 3.56 Million in Europe. 5.5 Million in 12 days is pretty impressive in my book, even if it's not the best ever. It has already outsold GT5 Prologue and it hasn't even been two weeks!! http://www.heraldonline.com...
*2 and 1/2 weeks
12 days is less than 2 weeks, 14 days is a full two weeks. ;)
oh right... lol I didn't think enough. What I meant by 2 and 1/2 weeks was that the game has been out for 2 and 1/2 weeks so far. But then again, the sales report states 12 days... Ah, looks like it's time for bed for me.
This Just in, sony beefing up gt 5 sales.. sold 400k in nov..
Edit - These are shipped numbers acc@ to Gaf
They can't do that, they are bound by laws and such... 400k in November, but these figures include the first week of December. Another 700k is not hard to fathom.
GT5 came out near the end of November..
It's cool how you ignore that GT5 released late in November, and that companies can't falsify numbers for legal reasons.
But keep on trollin'. I enjoy the comedy.
Damn, this is a lot.
damn it already outsold GT5 Prologue
If you want to see the real SONY PRESS RELEASE of the total GRAN TURISMO 5 shipped, here you can see the actual charts of the game: http://translate.google.com...
Well deserved. One of my top 3 series of all time!
Wow big numbers.
Great Job Polyphony not even all that nit picking. Ignorants,Gamspots etc bias reviews could stop GT5 to sell at a rate only a shooter could.. PS.Happy to be a part of those 5.52Mill and growing
It's actually confirmed 5.5 million shipped. Stop believing the lies.
ya i know. same with the 45 million xboxs shipped. if anything. its sold at least 5 million.
glad you mis-read the title...
"Stop believing the lies." The only lies are the lies you're telling yourself.
"Gran Turismo series" Keyword is "series" There are so many fans out there, alot more than Forza. Congratulations PD and keep up a good work!
...the Halo killer was always there!!!
i don't care how much they get , but im glad PD get what it deserve :D ...
Mario kart wii alone has 26 million now and the mario series has 310 million worldwide most of any series and thats down to out right quality
My copy of GT3:Spec accounts for one of those.
