GT5 sold over 265k in UK alone

Forums - Sales Discussion - GT5 sold over 265k in UK alone

The Chart-Track released today the long awaited figures about sales in UK for Gran Turismo 5 and the numbers are very good.

- Gran Turismo 5 achieves the 6th largest PS3 launch week
- 6% up on Gran Turismo 4 launch week sales

What that means?

By the same Chart-Track the Gran Turismo 4 sold over 250k in UK at launch week becoming the 4th title in 2005 to do this (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=116065). So 6% over GT4 means over 265k for launch week in UK.



What do you think? And about EMEAA fw sales?

Hmm...pretty good,but not THAT huge

Pretty good, but not mind blowing. Its great that it did better than Gran Turismo 4, though. Looks like this game should have great legs.

Odd. Future. Wolf. Gang. Kill. Em. All. OFWGKTA Don't give a fuck!

Fuck Steve Harvey. FREE EARL!

Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be the GREATEST game EVER made!!!

I'd take a bullet for Square-Enix! 


Where does it say 265k in the article?

Or is this based on 6% increase of what VGC has GT4 at?

Yes. Not THAT huge than MW2, Black Ops, GTAIV and maybe FIFA.

Chart-Track GT4 launch.


Launched last Friday in the UK, Gran Turismo 4 is already one of only four titles that have sold over a quarter of a million units in launch week and has secured the honour of becoming the fourth fastest selling videogame on these shores, the top three being GTA: San Andreas, GTA: Vice City and Halo 2.

Now make maths.

And over 265k could be 300k or more in UK the weakest PS3 country.

Before you guys say "meh":

- GT5 has had NO TV marketing pre-release in UK...and I mean absolutely nothing.

- GT5 has beaten GT4 launch sales despite being on a MUCH smaller userbase


Take that info as you will....

All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

GT4 launch in May 9,so i still dont think thats HUGE,but still good

 Impressive, I don't quite get how the game is doing so well as it's been an almost stealth launch - you'd wouldn't know the game was out if you didn't go into a shop and see it on the shelf! I thought Sony had perhaps ballsed it up a bit but apparently not.

 I'd assume marketing will kick in soon and that should bode well for some very very strong Christmas legs, I doubt it'll be able to hold up as long as GT4 did though.
