asia sales contributes more due to piracy crackdown (comparing to PS2 era) and growth economy of that region.

 

still, sold 6.3 million as of beginning of Dec 2010, this means GT5 is disgustingly undertracked here. (even if people do claim it's just 'shipped' number,)



Soriku (Feb 10/08): In 5 years the PS3/360 will be dead.

KH3 bet: "If KH3 comes to Wii exclusive, I will take a 1 month of sig/avatar by otheres open a thread apologize and praise you guys' brilliance." http://vgchartz.com/forum/thread.php?start=50&id=18379

PSP has a digital version and VGC don't track it like GT5: Prologue.



Those are great sales, i knew that if a Sony exclusive was to sale 10mill it was going to be GT, which is by far since ps1 days the biggest sony franchise.



Not surprised.

well these are obviously shipped not "sold" numbers but the important part is the current shipped numbers are larger than the first shipment numbers meaning retailers are reordering GT5 to replenish stock as oppose to just having tons of copies on the shelves.

Remember, these figures are also by the end of December. We're at the end of Feb.

Definitely. I live in Singapore and GT5 was a huge hit here as compared to the previous instalments. The PS3 taught the public here to buy originals and it certainly paid off



And again, I have yet to buy my copy.  Just imagine a boost in sales after a signifigant slowdown when it becomes a Greatest Hits title.

The only thing the PS3 taught my country is to buy the 360 and hack it :P
