Shadow Flare3293d ago

And 10 million is what every gran turismo has hit, at least

Acquiescence3293d ago

Crystallis3293d ago

Aggesan3293d ago

But it's not stoping me from buying this game. And I usually doesn't even bother about racing games, but this is GT!

Fishy caught him with the uppercut right to the chin! BAAAM!

Trust me dark, Polyphony digital would be thrilled to have GT5 to half of Mario Kart numbers. Any developer would!

GT 5:P was a demo at $40 and it did 5 million and at that time ps3's install base wasn't close to 40 million

if it isn't shooter then it can't set a new sales record IMO.
