Forums - Sales Discussion - Gran Turismo 5 sells 9 million units

Polyphony digital has just updated its numbers for the Gran Turismo franchise and the results are quite good.

 

Earlier the sales were are 7.3 million units and it looks like the game has sold 1.5 million more approximately, to hit 9 million units. It is still lower than the PS2 versions, mind.

Gran Turismo 3 remains the highest selling game, followed by Gran Turismo 4. The series’ influence in the United States has declined a lot and majority of sales have been from Europe, but still considering the PS3 install base, this is a massive achievement.

The game is the lowest scoring GT game too, averaging at 84 on Metacritic. Polyphony has hinted about Gran Turismo 6 previously and we are not sure whether it will be released for the PS3.

It sold 2 million in the US and 5.5 million in the EU. That’s quite a difference compared to Gran Turismo 3.

Here are the complete series stats:

Undertracked here. Deserved sales.

No troll is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate trolls, I train people. I am the Troll Whisperer.

vgc getting it right like always....oh wait

8 million from the full version and they sold over 4 million from the prologue (according to this site) Pretty darn good. Still the king of all racing games without a doubt sales wise.

Amazing sales!!
