In all honesty, Gran Turismo 5 is one of the most content-filled games to hit any console, and yet Polyphony Digital’s releasing more as time goes by. What’s the latest? A tweet from the boss himself, Kazunori Yamauchi, hints at an update that will revive the Performance Points system first helmed in Prologue.
Gran Turismo 5 is the biggest and best racing sim on the market, and according to many, it’s in a class of its own. Well last December, the game again proved its appeal, because after Sony had already announced 5.5 million copies of the game was sold, another 560.5K more flew off store shelves.
That takes the tally to over 6 million units sold worldwide.
Over five years under development, and Gran Turismo 5 franchise didn’t missed a beat. In fact, it’s so powerful a brand that doesn’t matter what other PS3 exclusive game’s made the headlines as of recently, the real racing simulator’s still top dog amongst the gathering.
To prove it’s staying appeal, Gran Turismo 5 has sold 5.5 million units in less three weeks, topping all other PS3 exclusives in the sales department easily.
That’s Metal Gear Solid 5: Snake Eater, Uncharted 1 & 2, Killzone 2 and all the other popular PS3 brands.

Gran Turismo 5′s not only hitting western countries by storm, the real racing simulator’s also got Japanese gamers going mental. So much so that in six days, over 430,000 units were sold, and with that, helping PS3 take the number two spot in Japan’s latest hardware sales result, with PSP grabbing the number one seat.
There’s no bigger PS3 game. There’s no other so highly anticipated. Many have tried, but the biggest PlayStation system seller of all time has always been Gran Turismo, and coming in but a few hours, the fifth installment will crash-land on planet earth, sending many a PS3 owner into seclusion. There are guys and gals you won’t hear from, or see for weeks on end, and that’s because of GT5.
