GT5 Tops 5.5 Million, Franchise Hits 60 Million Worldwide

It has always been one of the most popular video game franchises in history, and with the aid of the most recent installment, Gran Turismo has hit another plateau.

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) has revealed that the cumulative worldwide sales for the long-running and critically acclaimed series has topped 60 million units as of December 6, 2010. That 60 million is the sell-in number, in case you're wondering. GT managed to reach the impressive mark in just under 13 years; the first title hit the Japanese market in late December of 1997. From the press release:

"The Gran Turismo franchise, from the original Gran Turismo to the latest Gran Turismo®5, has continued to evolve alongside the PlayStation platforms. With its outstanding gameplay, beautiful graphics and true-to-life driving simulation, the franchise is recognized as the world's number one automotive game title on the PlayStation format, receiving high regard not just from game fans, but from professional racing drivers and enthusiasts in the automotive industry."

As for GT5, which is technically the 9th entry in the franchise, it offers a "completely new physics engine" along with a lineup of over 1,000 licensed cars. It also boasts 3D, real-time car damage, dynamic weather effects, kart racing, a Course Maker, and a deep online and community feature...but you already knew that, right? So far, the game has sold over 5.5 million units worldwide, and that number has been reached in less than 2 weeks.

Yes indeed, the world continues to reward Kazunori Yamauchi and Co. And that, of course, is the right thing to do.

Maybe Ben and Arnold could create separate PSN accounts just to play with PSX Extreme members?

Haha, that would be fun indeed!

Highlander - I mount my Logi DFGT to possibly the worst surface one can place it on - glass. The coffee table is a glass slab that floats on a metal frame. That said, I use rubber mats beneath the wheel and between the grips that anchor it to the table. No problems... Other than the height of the wheel, but I'm not going to nag about that!

Having a wheel makes an INCREDIBLE difference in gameplay. There's no way in hell for me to properly countersteer cars with the DS3. With an progressive pedal AND wheel, I can feather the throttle and properly countersteer through mostly any corner (unless, of course, I get airborn just before the kink).

I can't say for certain that having a wheel will make any gamers time slips faster, but it certainly did so with mine. There's a learning curve to abide by before you can get wild, but that's nothing compared to what it takes to use analog sticks to do the same.

I'd love to do some community racing if you guys and gals do go ahead with this. I'm not the best racer when it comes to this game, but it's all about the fun, right?! This game makes losing fun! haha.. It'd be cool to see how seasoned some of my fellow PSXE people are on the track!

Ahh, all this GT talk makes me want to strap a wheel to the table! Too bad my lunch break is almost over. Blah!

The controller is just as viable, it all comes down to performance and overall result. If you're able to win it doesn't matter what you use.

I would set up this psxe academy but 1. I haven't bought many cars 2. It takes months of practice to actually be good at these new tracks 3. I want to experience most of the GT mode before I go to the online world.

But if you guys do set it up I might join.

Nice. Perhaps this will finally convince some fence sitters that the game is worth it? I know I keep going back to it. Hell, even my wife plays it consistently.

Seriously though, I don't think that massive sales were ever in doubt for this title. It is however, gratifying to see the game selling that many units. Even at $60 a pop, that's $330 million already. I'm not sure how many collectors editions were sold, but it sure seems like there were a lot of them too.

For sure, this game is addictive! I dare say I know what a coke addict feels like... HAH! Ok, maybe thats a little overboard. I can't get my girlfriend to play since I started my gaming with the wheel (she's intimidated by the feedback), but she still loves it in it's more arcade-ish form of gameplay with the DS3.

Anyone who hasn't picked this game up is either too big into fads or just doesn't care about racing. There just isn't a reason to keep yourself away from this game if you have the $60 and a PS3, be it a man or lady. Nuff said.

true, it's only a little over 10% more, which although is actually pretty substantial, certainly doesn't make up for the over 250% more sales.

However, most of Europe is pretty well off, where as a lot of North America includes Central America and the Carribean countries which don't have nearly as much disposable income. Which is worth taking into account! Couple that with a much greater interest in automobiles and this style game in Europe, and the numbers become a little less hard to believe.

phudge_supreemz,

The US isn't the only group of people in north America so your numbers don't count. There are only about 300 million people in the US. You're including Canada while Naughty Dog Fan was not. So yes there are a lot more people in Europe than there are in the US. But let's say you include Canada and south America, sales will still be impacted for the reasons underdog listed. I agree though, more gamers/PS3 owners in the Americas should own this game.

Sorry, phudge_supreemz, but your numbers are not really that helpful. The video game market in Mexico is *not* particularly developed. The US and Canada make up more than 90% of the total gaming market in North America. The us is about 330 million people, and Canada adds another 34 million. the impact of the other North American countries on teh sales of consoles or games is pretty negligible - for now.

ok lets call north america around 360 million including canada. At the end of the day I think the drastic difference in sales numbers between north america and europe has more to do with the percentage of ps3 owners than the actual population.

When you say "sell-in number", that means shipped to stores right, as in 5.5 mil went out to retailers?

I believe actual game sales are around 3 mil, which is still fantastic considering it's been out for only a couple of weeks.

Forza 3 has been out much longer and only sold 3.7 to a larger install base. I guess racing fans know where to find their true racing fix.

I know MS lists their sales for units shipped. I'm unsure if that's the case with GT5. You will always have a margin of error, obviously more commonly from retailers, but I'm assuming this is implying units sold to consumers.

Yeah, so VG has is at 2.9 million sold. A solid number still, but I thought this was going to be a blockbuster right out the gate. Man I wish there were 500 cars and all were premium. And they don't have a 2009 or 2010 Shelby GT Mustang which I really wanted to race, but they have about a million Nissans, Toyotas, and Hondas. That's irritating because I read a post where they said this game has something for everyone...very true, but they don't even have the car I trully want. I might be wrong as I don't have the game yet, but I read the cars list and GT planet. No Porshes...downer, but that heavy list of different spec Hondas,Mazdas, and Nissans is clearly extras content so GT5 could reach that 1000 count.

My only complaint with GT5 is that none of the six cars that I drive semi-regularly are included in it.

Also, the heavy focus on Mazda, Honda and Toyota makes sense, as they are Japanese brands, and are held in higher esteem by PD. At least they didn't disclude the other X number of cars altogether.

Well, it's like this, the slow upgrading forces you to race in a car that's not that great, so you have to drive better to win. I like the challenge of taking a low end car and upgrading it piece by piece and finding ways to win despite having an inferior machine.

It's also fun to see how far you can take the nonsense by spending stupid amounts on upgrades and pitting your 700HP 1970's Dodge Charger (or whatever other example you care to use) against a McLaren F1 around Sarthe.

5.5 million sold in two weeks? And who said that this wouldn't be able to rival CoD :P. That's actually rather amazing. Given the rather average reviews that it got from most popular sites, I was expecting far lower sales figures, but it looks like people know the quality that the GT series always brings to the table, and reward it accordingly. Great news for Sony and PD.

These aren't 5.5 million sold-through(as to consumers), but rather 5.5 million sold to retailers. With that mind when speaking of sold-through, GT5 acutal retail numbers is probably much lower than this.

Why are all the cars that were premium in Prologue...still Premium in GT5? Notice the Bugatti Veyron is not because it wasn't in Prologue. Granted they made around 125 Premium cars for GT5 but the other 75 or so were taken from Prologue. 6 years to add cockpits and pixels to Premium cars, was not enough time? Get off your ass next time! You sold 54.5 million units before GT5 was out ... PLUS all the other crap games for other systems. That's not enough money to hire more people to program for the nearly impossible PS3. I am glad the Cell is do powerful...Who gives a crap if you can't program for it! Sick of it! At least they released an 80% finished game and with the updates it at around 85% now. Needs DAMAGE, an option to remove HUD, ALL the cars premium and better tire marks, track surfaces and shadows! If you want...add in better replay cameras and 3D scenery.

Also the PS3 sold a lot more in Europe. It is slowly catching on in North America. 360 is Microsoft ....Sony is Japanese. It is also a Blu-Ray player. I was racking my brain for a reason to buy the PS3 when it came out. Couldn't think of one. Oct 2005 I had my Xbox 360...PS3 launched 2 years later. That's 2 years of gaming! I finally bought PS3 for the exclusives and Blu-Ray won out ...oh and the unadvertised web browser, that Sony never talks about. PS3 is built better, the 360 is a better game machine (the internals of the 360 are crap from the lowest bidders) What are games programmed on? A PC so it is easier to make it for the similar 360. Also, multi platform games are always better on the 360, due to better comparability and 1080p upconvert. Buy GRID by Codemasters or most other multi platform games. 720P? On PS3 and bad porting. F1 2010 is not bad on both systems. You need a Fanatec Wheel (which is slightly better than the logitech G25/27) and you can use it on both consoles and PC. (with a dongle). Update the hell out of GT5 and you have a Great game!
