    Editors of GTPlanet please correct the title asap. The 1.8 million record is in just 3 months, not 4 months. Don’t you see the “”as of December 2009″ in the Polyphony offcial site?

    This sells are kind of weird because i havent seen this game in any top 20 even, sounds like they shipped lots of units but i really doubt that the game sold this much.

    Also i think is the worst GT ever.

    @oneloops Its actually the other way around. GT5P, and GT5 delayed GTPSP. Jus thought you should know.

    For the drop between 3 and 4 there are a couple of reasons, first 3 was a leap in graphics from 2 so it sold more. Also remember 3 (at least in the US) had a PS 2 bundle… that’s how I obtained GT3 myself. Most people don’t buy every version of a game only major iterations. It’s only the hardcore like us on this site that may buy every version. I am surprised how many copies GT 5 P sold as it’s only a fraction of a whole GT game.

    maxpontiac gt5 prologue already outsold forza
    As you may know, Polyphony Digital publishes the sales figures of each Gran Turismo game on their website, and they just updated the numbers for Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. In the last four months (going by the numbers from May), the game has sold approximately 700,000 copies, bringing the total to nearly 4,000,000. No doubt, the Greatest Hits price drop helped drive retail sales, despite the fact that prices on eBay. Regardless, this is an impressive milestone for a “small” game – and one which will, no doubt, pour fuel on the the fire of the endless GT / Forza debate…

    I honestly believe GT PSP was a scrapped project. There are too many similarities between GT PSP and GT4. So my theory is that GT4 Mobile was really being developed and PD wasnt happy (i.e. the night tracks werent up to par or 6 cars was too much for the PSP) with it so they scrapped it and wasnt touched for a couple years, but Sony said “no way, we paid you all to develop a PSP game.” So, they took what they had completed, added some newer cars, left out the night time tracks all together, took the license tests and renamed them challenges and added the drift mode and released it as is.
    Still fun but really not a complete game. Thank god for ad-hoc party…

    so people fell for PDs marketing move… release GT5P… delay GT5, Release GT PSP… Delay GT5… and with nothing but a 2 year old “Demo”… obviously we are going to get any GT we can get our hands on… and that GT being the PSP.

    Smart move sony.

    I bought the umd copy myself… I was under the impression that this didn’t sell very well but I’m glad I was wrong!

    the GT franchise has sold over 55 millions copies in total that’s a hell of a lot which ever way you look at it.

    http://kotaku.com/5466422/gran-turismo-series-55-million-sold-and-counting

    can’t see GT5 outselling GT4 (nevermind GT3) because the install base of the PS3 isn’t in the same league as the PS2 when GT4 launched…still should go platinum in all three teritories.

    I have downloaded it becouse i didn’t felt obliged to buy it becouse of Sony and PD’s ( gt5 things )

    Just for the record: GTpsp was released in the EU a week before the Japanese release. So stop whining an lying.

    Imagine their sales figures if PD did something more substantial than just stripping down and porting GT4’s arcade mode to the PSP. All the bad reviews asking “Where is the game?” certainly don’t make people want to shell out hard-earned cash.

    To Be honest the figures mean nothing to Sony Execs. At the end of the day they will release stuff for Europe either last or with America. Europe wont see a Before Japan release date. Neither will America EVEN though looking at GT PSP’s Figures the European Userbase is the biggest.

    Sonys antiquated (<—-spelling) way of splitting regions by the Pal / NTSC coding really needs to be sorted out. How can you call India or South Africa as part of SCEE? It just does not make sense.

    I think so too…

    I might be mistaken, but hasn’t the combined GT5P and GT PSP come close to outselling Forza 2 and 3??

  23. Feb. 8, 12:35pm

    the 1.8 million-record is only for 3 months (Oct.1 ~ Dec. 2009), not 4 months.

    Lets hope with the Europe sales dominating that Gt5 will be released at the same time everywhere…

    I don’t care, I just wish the released GT5 before GT PSP.

    It also interesting to see on that list that GT5 Prologue is the best selling PS3 title. And GT3 and 4 are second and third for the PS2. And GT1 is first on the PS1. And GT2 is third for the PS1… It really is Sony’s biggest franchise.

    1.420.000 total In US and EU… And they still don´t care about us (EU and US) and force always the Japan release first… I don´t understand that…

    Well I enjoyed GT-PSP although there is no way I’ll complete it. Actually I’ve considered getting a PSPGo just so I can use my Dual Shock 3 with it and make the experience more enjoyable.

    If the GTPSP –> GT5 thing turns out to be significant I will play GTPSP more :)

    ps: I too bought the downloadable version despite only having a PSP-2000. UMDs are so passe.

  33. Feb. 8, 8:27am
    xtaz

    And like always, more copies sold in Europe even though we are always the latest to get a game like GT.

  34. Feb. 8, 7:55am

    You can install data from the UMD to the memory stick to reduce loa.ding times

    @S3 Racer: there’s an option in GT PSP to store the entire game on Memorystick, eliminating the extra load time from the UMD version.

    @ S3 Racer, I bought it two times. One UMD version the day before release (thank you lady in the shop ) The other was the psn version as I hate needing UMD’s.

    I see GT has sold 55 million copies since the franchise began. Interesting to see the drop in sales between GT3 and GT4.
