Polyphony Digital recently revealed it’s latest global sales numbers for the recently released Gran Turismo 5. The driving simulator has sold approximately 6.4 million copies in just around 3 months time. The game’s largest following was in Europe where the title boasted a huge sales advantage, selling 3.97 million units. It’s closest competitor, North America sold 1.58 million with Japan behind at 600k.
Gran Turismo 5, which has been available for approximately 3 months, is far from the best selling title in the franchise. Gran Turismo 5 still trails it’s successors like Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, which has sold almost 15 million units, and Gran Turismo 4, which sold 11 million units.
The franchise historically has long legs however, and it is expected that the game will continue to sell well for sometime to come. In the three months since it’s launch, Polyphony digital has implemented numerous updates to the game to improve the Gran Turismo 5 experience. The latest update added new features that allow you to play through the B-Spec mode of the game away from your PS3, among other game improving mechanics.
