Gran Turismo 5: Prologue: Fastest-Selling PS3 Title In UK

We already knew that Gran Turismo 5: Prologue had topped one million in sales in the UK, but we didn't realize this would make it the fastest-selling PlayStation 3 title to date in the region.

According to Chart-Track, Prologue has debuted at the very top of the software sales list in the UK, topping even Ubisoft's big-time release, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2. Furthermore, and more importantly, this gigantic GT5 demo became the fastest-selling PS3 game in a single week, and is currently the 19th best-selling title on the system. For other notable games on the list, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock falls one place but remains in the top 5, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare stays in the top 10, and past successful titles stay successful, like Assassins Creed and MotorStorm. You can see the rundown of the top 20 here.

Can we expect a similar sales spike when Prologue releases in the US in two weeks time? We say, more than likely. In the meantime, Euro gamers should be all kinds of happy that they finally got a high-profile game before North America. This time, we're the ones who are waiting...nice to be on the other side for once, right guys?

I believe this. GT5p will really capture my interest when I can play my mates online. At the moment I'll stick to single player or split screen 2 player.
