Nope, get this outta here. It's well known that sales don't equal quality on N4G lol.

"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
Lord_Doggington  +   1358d ago
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
Mr Tretton  +   1358d ago
Mario has existed for many years more jackass. But I think you know that.
TenSteps  +   1358d ago
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:

NBA Live and Harry fricken' Potter had Halo beat.

**WTF: Ape Escape neck on neck on Gran Turismo?

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!

Unknow_Master  +   1358d ago
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
peeps  +   1358d ago
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...

They definitely deserved it
SactoGamer  +   1358d ago
For the most part, yes they do.
stonecold3  +   1358d ago
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 ?
sleepy3  +   1358d ago
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
SoapShoes  +   1358d ago
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!

It says that in this article, too.
SoapShoes  +   1358d ago
Oops, I missed that part. Anyway the breakdown for how much it sold is in there.
Cyrax_87  +   1358d ago
"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.

Thats a big ass number! It's about to be 70 million if I have anything to say about it!
El_Colombiano  +   1358d ago
You're going to buy 10 million copies of GT5? lol
SactoGamer  +   1358d ago
That's only....$599.5-million worth.
RememberThe357  +   1358d ago
lol Your damn right! I'm about to get super rich and blow it all on GT5 games!
SoapShoes  +   1358d ago
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!!

*2 and 1/2 weeks
SoapShoes  +   1358d ago
12 days is less than 2 weeks, 14 days is a full two weeks. ;)
BaSeBaLlKiD721  +   1358d ago
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.

SoapShoes  +   1358d ago
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.
SonyPlayStation4  +   1358d ago
GT5 came out near the end of November..
AceofStaves  +   1357d ago
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.
Arup02  +   1358d ago
Damn, this is a lot.
SonyPlayStation4  +   1358d ago
damn it already outsold GT5 Prologue
