Gran Turismo 5 has received one of the most massive updates to ever hit a racing simulator, adding, amongst tons of other things, remote racing. Indeed, now you can start a B-Spec race via the internet and watch how your PS3-controlled drivers are doing remotely. If that ain’t awesome, The Rock can home. It was promised, and Polyphony Digital delivered.
There’s loads more, too, everything from car loan events to even more car settings. Head past the break.
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.
Yes indeed, the best racing simulator to release this gen’s also the best selling game of all time on the PS3. Imagine that. And in the UK, the game’s holding strong the number spot, beating out big titles like EA’s Need for Speed, Treyarch’s Black Ops, and even EA’s Fifa 11.
The full list’s past the jump.
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.
Is there a system seller that can help move consoles? Seriously, are there any left? That’s a question, when it comes to PS3, many a gamer reply with unmoved resolve: yes, and that game’s Gran Turismo 5. For Sony, this Christmas, the aforesaid title will help them move some extra PS3 units, because Gran Turismo 5 “will be on top of many gamers’ wish lists.”
When you’ve waited over five years for a game, and finally, in two weeks, it’ll be available, you feel like a child receiving a Christmas gift.
It’s even better when you know receiving said gift will be a sure thing, since you’re the one who’s buying it.
That’s why Gran Turismo 5 will be one of the best selling games of 2010, and the best selling GT title of all time.
I know gamers who’s spent hundreds of dollars on wheels, sits and extra stuff just to get the right feel.
