Personally I think with a push in advertising towards its release over the next few weeks GT5 should see a minor boost in American pre-orders, maybe topping out at around 300,000. If it doubles those then a 550-600,000 launch in America alone will be assured; add to that what will surely be a pretty big launch in EMAA regions, (especially considering F1 2010 sold over 500,000 first week combined) I can see 1.5 million week one.
Regardless of week one sales, we all know Gran Turismo have notoriously long legs and garner most of their sales after the initial launch. It should be in for a massive holiday season.
