Polyphony Digital has released new shipment figures for Gran Turismo 5, and it seems the game has lived up to the success of the franchise. Since releasing late last November, 6.37 million copies of the game have shipped to retailers. Granted, that’s not how many copies have been actually sold, but it’s an impressive figure nonetheless. If you combine that with the 5.2 million of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, the series has shipped over 11 million units this generation alone.
GT5 was a fantastic game and it’s great to see the final product enjoy this kind of success after so many years of work went into it. Unfortunately, my time is consumed by another PS3 exclusive right now.
