* Sorry guys I was kinda missing the forum these days *
In November 24th, 2010 the most epic racing simulator ever saw in the world was released with a big party in Madri (Spain). That was the mark of the "NEW ERA" expected for year for all gamers fissured by race simulators. The haters, hated it clear, however the rest of the world were presented with more than they expected ... the game was fantastic.
Like every other game GT5 was some problems too but what Polyphony Digital did was truly admirable and set a new standard for developers "post-release support". Firstly we received updated every month (or sometimes week) with not only fixed bugs but new and better features. The growed, every part of it became better and new options and/or feature changed the game culminating in launch a new reatail version called Spec II in Japan.
The Spec II was not a new game, it was the same game with a lot of the new things made by fans for fans. Polyphony Digital listened all the fans in the world and did their job making the already great game in the one of the most beautiful and appreciated games of this generation.
The result? Sales over sales. The game showed legs never saw in any other game this generation exceeding all expectations. Firsty 5 million, after 6 million, then 7 million and now, tow years after release, it's over 9 million.
The US received your own Spec II version called XL and Europe the GT5 Academy Edition, a tribute to the biggest racing sim tournament already created in the world: "GT Academy". GT Academy is not just a tournament, it's way more... it make professional racing drivers.
Yeap guys... Gran Turismo 5 is the first game you can use the word "EPICNESS" without fear of being biased because it deservers all the praises.
CONGRATS GRAN TURISMO 5 FOR YOUR TWO YEAR BIRTHDAY!!!
