A chat with the Gran Turismo godfather

With more than 47 million copies shipped worldwide since its 1997 launch, Sony's Gran Turismo is the most successful racing game in history and one of the best-selling titles of all time, period. The latest installment in the billion-dollar franchise, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, arrives for PlayStation 3 early next year. From day one, 40-year-old lead developer Kazunori Yamauchi's vision has made it all possible. (Culture, Gran Turismo 4, Gran Turismo 5, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, Gran Turismo HD Concept, PS2, PS3)

This is another WORLDWIDE system seller for Sony. People tend to forget about the power that Gran Turismo holds over the gaming industry. Once it is released, expect PS3 to outsell 360 on a 5:1 margin. And for those racing fans who dont like GT. Bizzare Creations will create a racing game with the Project Gotham engine for PS3. So it's all good for Sony right now.

I think mario kart is the best selling racing franchise
but I'm not sure I have to check the sales off of the vc.

1-Team ICO games
2-GT Series
3-...and now Uncharted series. Althought this series will replace #2 if the next instalment is just as goo if not beeter than the first. I can't get enough of this game, and the replay value is much, much higher than some of the reviews are saying. If this game is any indication of the type of games we'll be seeing on the PS3, than we PS3 owners are in for one of the eras in gaming history.

Uncharted = "Best movie I've ever played."
